Back with part two of our discussion as Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog previews some of the defensive players who could be on Seattle's radar. This show kicks off with a look at what might be the team's biggest need overall. If the Seahawks can add a cornerback who matches the caliber or improves upon Shaquill Griffin's rookie season, that would help fans feel a lot better about the defense going into 2021.
If John Schneider and Pete Carroll break form and address cornerback in the second round, something they've never done, then Rob likes Benjamin St-Juste of Minnesota. He also likes Ambry Thomas out of Michigan. Ifeatu Melifonwu, however, is someone who has been routinely projected to Seattle, but the disappointment of his brother's career has rubbed off negatively when it comes to the Syracuse prospect.
Considering that there are always special teams needs to fill, safety and linebacker are two areas that shouldn't be completely overlooked. Defensive tackle may not be a need for Seattle with the Al Woods signing, but if teams are overlooking Texas A&M DT Bobby Brown then Rob would be happy to see him land with the Seahawks. We also discuss how defensive end shouldn't be overlooked. Sure they have depth, but if they have someone who can make an impact, they should take a chance even with a limited number of picks.
