With the 208th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Seahawks selected Florida OT Stone Forsythe. Seattle traded up with the Bears to get Forsythe in exchange for Pick No. 217 and 250.
That means that barring a trade back into the draft, the 2021 Seahawks draft class is now complete.
As expected, former Florida teammates and coaches, as well as Seahawks fans, sent out their well-wishes to the newest member of the 12 army.
Forsythe is massive at 6-foot-8 and 307 pounds. He started 28 games while at Florida, including all 12 games in 2020. He played left tackle as a senior. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein compared him to Nate Solder.
Forsythe might have the chance to compete with Cedric Ogbuehi to be Seattle’s swing tackle from the jump.
Congrats Forsythe and welcome to Seattle!
