Two More Coming In

by: Michael Steffes

The names of player visits trickle out everyday, usually because they involve guys expected to go in the first round. The Seahawks, however continue their practice of bringing in lesser knowns to increase their chances of possibly signing them after the draft. To see who they are....

J.J. Pesavento, of Next Level Scouting has confirmed two more visits for the Seahawks. The first is WR, Tyrice Thompson of Arizona St. Thompson is 6-5, 220, so he would be a big target in the red zone. He doesn't seem to be on the radar of most draft sites, so there isn't too much I can tell you, well except the Hawks are using a visit to bring him in for a chat.

Also, Pasavento is reporting that the Hawks are also using a visit to bring in his Sun Devil teammate TE, Brent Miller. Miller is 6'5", but only 240. He runs a 4.7. Some project him to be an H Back. However, if his frame could handle some weight, he could end up with prototypical size. NFL Draft Scout has him rated as the 25th best TE, and says he is a "steady blocker with reliable hands."

Also, if you hadn't noticed, I have included a link to the list of the players Seahawks have visited with, gone to the pro days of etc. You may have seen it in a post I did. Well, I have been updating it and made it available to you with the touch of the mouse. It is right beneath the countdown to the draft. These names will be added too.
