NFC West: Devon Witherspoon, CB, Seattle Seahawks – Round 1, Pick 5
Are the Seahawks assembling the Legion of Boom, Part Deux? Pete Carroll adds arguably the top cornerback in the 2023 draft to his already formidable defensive backfield.
The 6’0 “181-pound Devon Witherspoon, out of Illinois, brings an edgy toughness and excellent coverage skills to the Pacific Northwest. Witherspoon’s fluid coverage ability, ball skills, and aggressive physical style will be a great fit in Seattle’s defense which tied for seventh (45) in sacks last season.
This excellent young player is being plugged into an optimal situation for him to flourish. If you like old-school football, you will want to watch the ‘Hawks in 2023.
