2. Tre Brown will fit right in

Brown has a wealth of experience coming out of Oklahoma with some seriously eye-catching stats to get Seahawks fans excited.

According to Pro Football Focus, he allowed the lowest passer rating in single coverage of the entire 2021 draft class. In 2019 and 2020, he didn’t give up more than 70 yards receiving in a game. That’s an impressive track record in the pass-happy Big 12.

The book on Brown is all about upside. He’s got an excellent mentality that will drive him to maximize his potential. He’s as competitive as they come and will fit right in with the aggressive mentality of the Seahawks secondary.

As a fourth-round selection, the gamble makes sense. Maybe he’ll be a career backup. He could just as easily outperform evaluations and prove his time as an effective DB in a Power 5 conference prepared him well. At a minimum, he’ll be a special teams fixture.

Seattle could throw him in the slot to make his stature at 5-foot-9 less of an issue. He still ran a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash and can put that speed to work for him in the pros.
