Round 2, 40th Overall: Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming
Losing Bobby Wagner is a huge deal for the Seattle Seahawks, and while Brooks is an ascending talent at the linebacker position, he’s been excellent working off the ball and in coverage, flying around to make plays all over the field. They can keep him out there while also looking for a new MIKE to take over Wagner’s spot.
This is where Chad Muma comes in. Muma has burst onto the draft scene as one of the top linebackers in the 2022 NFL Draft, and it’s easy to see why. He has a quick trigger and great combination of vision and processing against the run, and offers the athletic upside to handle things in coverage.
Round 2, 41st Overall: Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA
The Seahawks were at their best in the secondary with tall, long corners who could get in the face of receivers and re-route them to disrupt timing. In a deep corner class, it seems unlikely that Seattle leaves with any less than two corners.
Tariq Woolen may feel like a bit of a stretch here, but man the upside and traits are there. Woolen dominated at the combine, measuring in at 6’4″ and 205 pounds, then subsequently running a 4.26 40-yard dash and jumping 42 inches in the vertical. His technique needs some cleaning up, but the speed to hang vertically, the size to play at the line, and the explosion to contest the catch point is a great bundle to develop into an elite starter.
