The Seahawks elected to move on from EDGE Frank Clark last offseason, shipping him off to the Kansas City Chiefs.
That certainly saved a lot of money, sure. But it also came at the cost of cutting into what was once a prolific Seattle pass rush. Right now, the Seahawks have 10 sacks, which sits right in the middle of the pack. But with some defensive question marks in the secondary, finding another quality edge rusher would be a wise move.
And remember, the Seahawks’ recent reign of dominance all started with their defense. One might think it wise to try getting back to this kind of prowess again, especially with the rest of the NFC West going through some fluctuation.
Penn State EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos isn’t quite the NFL Draft prospect as, let’s say, Chase Young. In fairness, few defensive players are.
Still, Gross-Matos’ stock is on the rise, and he looks to be a quality mid-round selection for Seattle’s first pick.
