Back to defense for Seattle, and back to looking for some depth that will bring competition in practice. Godchaux will fall this late because he does not bring much in terms of pass rushing ability and may be a player that can only stay on the field for obvious run downs. However, Seattle prides itself in run defense, and when they can line up Frank Clark, Michael Bennett, Ahtyba Rubin and Cliff Avril on obvious pass situations, the need for a pure pass rusher is way down on the totem pole.
Godchaux profiles as a poor man’s version of Jarran Reed, who the team took in the second round last season. Reed showed last season in replacing Brandon Mebane and should have a long career ahead of him. Godchaux can serve as a reserve for Reed, a spell for Rubin, and a fit when it comes to depth and have a high floor in the sixth round
Gerry is an interesting prospect who has great size and length to him. He is almost a rover type of safety/linebacker hybrid and does his best work in the box. He can learn behind Kam Chancellor and be a backup, but most importantly he can tackle which will get him on the field for special teams.
