It is unclear if the Seahawks will be able to re-sign Red Bryant, though it looks like they will. The only possible incentive for getting a defensive tackle is for depth.
Brandon Thompson is an explosive player, and it would be a good story for the Seahawks to essentially draft the Clemson d-line, but there are other needs the Seahawks have to address first.
Carroll likely will look at this prospect, because he is well regarded both on and off the field for his high intelligence and character. Also, at the combine this weekend, he was able to put up a solid 35 reps on the bench which is even more impressive considering his extremely large arms.
If the 'Hawks decide to go with a different position in Round 2 besides a QB such a Nick Foles or Kirk Cousins, it would most likely be this Clemson alum.
If they can hold off on a QB, Thompson would be great, but I can't buy into this pick knowing that we have more glaring needs.
