the 2022 NFL Draft is over and the Seattle Seahawks have come out on top with some great additions to their roster. Of course, questions remain at some key positions, and the team is far from settled on most of the roster; but one thing we know for sure is that the Seahawks are a lot of new players are going to get a lot of playing time in the upcoming season. And I, for my part, accept the change (because I literally have no choice). So, in keeping with that spirit of positivity and forced reflection, here’s a highlight for every Day Three pick the Seahawks have added to their roster, and even some carefully curated UDFA highlights. Except for Coby Bryant, which I already covered in a separate article.

Tariq wool | BC | UTSA
Tyreke Smith | EDGE | ohio state
Tyreke Smith is a damn good football player… Flashes a few jerks/1st pitch but doesn’t have the explosive equipment or pass rush arsenal
Maybe not the top prospect of Chase Young or Bosa but he’s a solid player pic.twitter.com/tUZpaFrRKZ

side note: love this pick. Similar to Alton Robinson’s selection, I feel like he’s the kind of guy this team needs; to have a deep body of rotating linemen who can really impact the game again would be great to see.
Bo Melton | WR | Rutgers
Dareke Young | WR | Lenoir Rhyne
Dareke Young took a lot of transfers in this attack from Lenoir Rhyne… Also played quite often from the 3pt position in this wing.

Levi Lewis | QB | Louisiana-Lafayette
Last season, Levi Lewis passed for a record 3,050 yards, rushed for 195 yards, threw for 26 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions.
His development as a QB was evident during the LendingTree Bowl.

Bubba Bolden | S | Miami
Kyle Hamilton is the top consensus safety prospect. This course is pretty good!
Miami Safety Bubba Bolden is the subject of my next piece! I love his qualities and his potential! pic.twitter.com/kPnyF8l8yj

Shamarious Gilmore | OG | state of georgia
Shamarious Gilmore made 36 bench press reps on his Pro Day … better than any performer in the 2022 NFL Combine, and not far off the illustrious “40 club.” In other words, he is “strong”. https://t.co/HhGoIi4NVp
