Seahawks finally make a pick, add Malik McDowell

Seahawks finally make a pick, add Malik McDowell

The former MSU defensive lineman was drafted in the second round, No. 35 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. Making his first career start at defensive end against Northwestern on October 15, McDowell registered a career-high 11 tackles, including two for losses (11 yards) and a half sack (4 yards).

"More is better depending on the draft".

"We just followed our board, " Schneider said.

Jones is the 14th defensive lineman from North Carolina selected in the NFL Draft over the last 15 years.

McDowell played both inside at tackle and outside at end for MSU during its 3-9 finish, one in which he said had "a lot of downs" and was "a rough season".

Pocic, though, was a priority due to his versatility. "Drafting two-and-a-half positions with one guy".

"I think you're trying to guess on which Malik McDowell you're going to get", NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said heading into the draft.

Sharks' Thornton, Couture game-time decision
Just like that, a Sharks team that seemed dead in the water heading into this series appears to have acquired a new lease on life. If the Oilers want to leave victorious and tie this series up, they will have to put on tremendous pressure and get shots on net.


McDowell, though, was the opposite.

McDowell is 6 feet 6, 295 pounds and entered the draft after his junior season.

This is a crucial draft for the Seahawks as the heart of Seattle's Super Bowl teams inch closer to the end of their peak. The Seahawks could also look to bolster the offensive line with Outland Trophy victor Cam Robinson, who went undrafted on the first day.

"I was a little stiff, I had a little gimpy walk", Jones said. "I've had an very bad lot of coaches say, 'If we could unlock the potential in this kid we'll have something special'". "I'm just here with the family". But the Seahawks had chances Thursday at the 26th and 31st spots in the first round, and traded down.

The Seahawks had the NFL's fifth-best defense last season and want to remain among the best in the league.

The rest of Seattle's day was kept stationary as the Seahawks added five more picks before the night was complete. Furthermore, Pete Carroll should be able to fix any effort issues that McDowell may have.

The Seahawks paid them too until the magic cap room they had been playing with ran out. Malcolm Butler is under contract and could be moved, though he's not as tall as Seattle typically likes its cornerbacks.
