The 2021 NFL Draft is almost here and the latest mock draft has been released by Mel Kiper and Todd McShay. They project the Seattle Seahawks to get a steal in the second round by selecting Miami pass rusher Gregory Rousseau to add to an improving defense.

Widely expected to be a first-round pick, Rousseau would make a great addition to the Seahawks' defensive line unit. At the moment, the team lacks an explosive pass rusher and that kind of energy is exactly what the former Miami Hurricane brings to the table.

Gregory Rousseau Seahawks Rumors

Rousseau opted out of the 2020 college football season, but shined back in 2019 racking up 34 tackles (19.5 for loss) and an impressive 15.5 sacks. He also forced two fumbles. Rousseau comes with a ton of upside.

If he can fill out his tall frame, Rousseau could wreak havoc all over the field at the next level. He would be a great pick for a Seattle squad that lacks a first-round pick and only has three picks total in the draft. Making the most out of their second-round selection will be vital for a Seahawks team looking to return to the postseason in 2021.

There is no question that some players will go earlier than expected in the draft and others will fall past their projections. All things considered, this would be the perfect scenario for the Seahawks and they should hope every other team passes on this talented edge rusher.
