2023 NFL Draft: S Jerrick Reed II schedules Top 30 visit w/ Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks are ramping up daily for the 2023 NFL Draft, and one of their goals will certainly be to fix one of the NFL’s worst defenses from last year. It doesn’t take much an expert to notice Seattle’s defense was a liability for the Geno Smith-led offense.
Part of this pre draft process will include a visit from safety Jerrick Reed II from the University of New Mexico. The Lobos prospect will visit with the Seahawks, and the reigning Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.

The focus on safety is a peculiar decision by Seattle, and it has been an ongoing theme this spring. The Seahawks turned more than a few heads by signing former New York Giants safety Julian Love. Seattle also gave in-house restricted free agent Ryan Neal a right of first refusal tender. Not to mention, the team has already hosted Minnesota safety Jordan Howden for a pre draft visit.
With all the attention at safety, it still begs the question: what does the future of Jamal Adams in the Emerald City look like?
