2022 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #9

Return to Mock Draft

Charles Cross

Mississippi State


For the first time in what feels like 1000 years, the Seahawks don't trade down from their first pick. Instead they opt to select the former Bulldog, Charles Cross. The last time GM John Schneider opted to draft an OT this high, they got a Pro-Bowl tackle in Russell Okung. With Duane Brown unsigned, the blindside protector became a massive need for Seattle and a quality prospect fell into their lap. Cross is more of a zone blocker in the running game, further signifying that Pete Carroll and Shane Waldron want to move into a more Rams style blocking scheme.

Grade: A+
