Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com pens his annual Diamonds in the Rough, a top five list of players at each position that could be good values in the later rounds, which is a must-read heading into this year’s draft.
You’ll find some familiar names on Rang’s list, and some players you probably never heard of.
But one name jumped out for me – Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson. Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, also a Wisconsin product, attended Wilson’s pro day.
And despite the fact the Seahawks signed Matt Flynn, I think they still could look to select a developmental quarterback in the later rounds. Southern Mississippi quarterback Austin Davis is another name to keep in mind.
Never miss a local story.
