Happy Draft Day, folks.
Some locals to watch out for as the NFL draft unfolds over the next few days:
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Rounds 1-2
- Bishop Sankey, RB, 2-3
- Sean Parker, S, 7-FA
- Keith Price, QB, 7-FA
- Kevin Smith, WR, 7-FA
- Gregory Ducre, CB, 7-FA
- Travis Coons, K, FA
- Deone Bucannon, S, 2
- Ioane Gauta, NT, 7-FA
- John Fullington, OT, 7-FA
- Andrew Furney, K, FA
- Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State/Henry Foss HS, Tacoma — 2-3
- Deandre Coleman, DT, California/Garfield HS — 5-6
- Demetri Goodson, CB, Baylor/Gonzaga basketball — 7-FA
Seferian-Jenkins seems to be the most likely local player drafted in today’s first round, which begins at 5 p.m. on ESPN and the NFL Network. Many analysts, including Rob Rang of CBSsports.com, have ASJ pegged to go in the second round, and Bishop Sankey could find a new home in the second round, too.
Speaking of Sankey, this is impressive.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, could be looking to trade out of the first round. That links also includes a mock draft by colleague Jayson Jenks.
