I know. I know. The Seahawks are prepping for a playoff game this weekend. (And I fully expect Seattle to vanquish the 'Boys at home.) However, with the college bowl season drawing rapidly to a close and the post-season all-star games on the horizon I thought it a good time to hit you with a few players to watch in the post-season all-star bowl games that might look good in Seahawk Blue this April.
I’ll group the players by bowl game in rough order of—in my humble opinion—the team’s biggest off-season needs (G, DL, S, CB). As of this writing, only the East-West Shrine game has its roster available online.
EAST-WEST SHRINE GAME (January 20)
Beekman, Josh – G, Boston College. Beekman is possibly the top guard available (also plays center). He could slide into the end of the first round.
Frye, Brandon – T, Va. Tech. Frye is very athletic, and has played both tackle spots, but may be a candidate to move inside in the NFL.
Downing, T.J. – G, Ohio State. Downing is a very similar prospect to Ryan Sims. He is likely a day two pick.
Other guys to watch: Tala Esera – T, Hawai’i; Dan Santucci – G, Notre Dame; Robert Turner – G, New Mexico
