The Seahawks’ 2022 NFL draft class is so good that even their most vocal critic can’t find fault in it. Former Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman has gone out of his way to praise some of the team’s picks, including Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III in the second round.

On his podcast that was released yesterday, Sherman also said he really likes the Seahawks getting Cincinnati corner and Jim Thorpe award winner Coby Bryant in the fourth round.

Bryant is an exception to the rule for this 2022 Seahawks rookie class when it comes to athletic testing – where he’s only slightly above average at his position.

However, Bryant more than proved he’s capable of balling out on the field even in a difficult situation. With opposing quarterbacks desperately trying to avoid throwing at his teammate Sauce Gardner (who went to the Jets at No. 4 overall), Bryant got a lot of attention and acquitted himself extremely well. He totaled nine picks and 35 pass breakups in college.
