More Visits, Pro Days, & Draft Stuff

Just a few more notes and nuggets before I call it a night. Hope you enjoy...

J.J. Pesavento, of Next Level Scouting has report on KFFL that says the Hawks are having Bryant Johnston, DE, from Gardner Webb out for a visit. Johnston was one of the top non BCS subdivision players last year. In fact, he was even included as a finalist for the Ted Hendricks award, against players like Chris Long and Lawrence Jackson. He has all the intangibles Ruskell loves, including being an all-academic player. He is currently projected for the fourth or fifth round, but NFL Draft Scout has his stock on the rise.

Also, Josh Buchanan, of, has two reports involving the Seahawks.

First, Adrian Arrington, WR, of Michigan is coming for visit as well. Arrington's stock was seemingly on the rise at the end of the year after a strong showing in UM's Bowl game. However, slow times have hurt his cause. I can attest that he is not afraid to go over the middle and has good hands. He is currently projected as a sixth round pick.

Finally, the Seahawks were in attendance at USC's pro day. No, not that one, University of South Carolina. I will actually be attending the U of So Cal pro day and giving all of you some inside access to what goes on. But as for the Gamecocks, the Seahawks were most likely looking at senior RB Corey Boyd as a late round pick. Here is a report on the SC pro day from The State, a local paper. END
