After entering a sophomore slump in 2018, the Seattle Seahawks look to be in position to add a cornerback early in the 2019 NFL Draft. Last year, the Seahawks were able to strike gold by finding starting cornerback Tre Flowers in the fifth round, and now another corner to the mix in the first two days this year could spell the end of the road in Seattle for Griffin.
How sad it would be to break up the Griffin brothers in Seattle, after the Seahawks drafted his brother and draft favorite Shaquem Griffin in the fourth round one year ago. At the end of the day, the NFL is a business and if the Seahawks, who only have four picks in the upcoming draft, can add draft capital, Griffin (the cornerback) could be on the move.
While new head coach Bruce Arians has expressed public support for 2016 first rounder Vernon Hargreaves, he played his best football as a slot cornerback, and moving him there permanently and adding another big bodied corner outside the numbers, like Griffin, is the answer for the Buccaneers defense.
Again, the Seahawks do not have a second rounder, or any pick past the fifth round in the draft. If Seattle wants to move up into the second round in 2019, packaging their third round pick with Griffin could be a deal that could land them the Buccaneers’ 39th overall pick in the draft.
