2023 NFL draft: fans react to Seahawks selecting Jerrick Reed II
The Seattle Seahawks have added yet another safety to their secondary this offseason. After signing former New York Giants safety Julian Love in free agency, the Seahawks drafted New Mexico standout Jerrick Reed II in the 6th round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
Jerrick Reed II actually visited with Seattle during the pre-draft process, so it seems the meeting went exceptionally well. Now, Reed II joins a crowded safety room and suddenly suffocating secondary.
As has been the theme all day with the Seahawks, fans are still pleased.
I had jerrick reed as my safety #2 in this draft. Getting him in the 6th round is a steal

I had Jerrick Reed II graded in R4, so another value pick. Aggressive running downfield, very good against the run. Very athletic with positional versatility. Should provide immediate ST value and a good replacement for Ryan Neal #Seahawks

Jerrick Reed was the last S prospect on the board for Seattle draft visits. Pretty perfect landing spot for #Seahawks. As they secure useful depth, with Ryan Neal moving on. https://t.co/0lCOTQLRwF

Some safety depth just in case. Jerrick Reed will be great for the locker room to ramp up competition
