NFL Draft 2013 Seahawks Sleepers: DE Rufus Johnson, Tarleton State - Field Gulls
DE Rufus Johnson, Tarleton State - 6'6, 266

Johnson is a big 6'5 1/2", 266 pound defensive end out of Tarleton State (no idea) that ran a 4.75 40 at his pro day with a 1.62 second split. He has/had a private workout with the Hawks, so suffice to say he's on my radar as a possible UDFA or late-round draft pick. Johnson was the 2012 Lone Star Conference defensive lineman of the year after he racked up 10.0 sacks and an impressive 17.5 tackles for a loss.

Impressively, he also finished the 9-game season with 50 tackles, which tells me that he plays the run well too - something the Seahawks will certainly find attractive.

He's got a nice strong punch off the snap that he uses to get offensive tackles off balance, and he does a nice job of keeping his eyes in the backfield so he doesn't run himself out of plays or get out of position.

Practice squad developmental guy with great measurables.

Hard to hate for a 6th rounder.

Good picks at 5 and 6. Can't wait to see the UDFA list. Good draft overall. Our defense just got a hellofalotbetter!

Re: 2013 LIVE DRAFT THREAD

He does seem to keep his motor running all the time. I like that. He'll put on ten-fifteen pounds before he hits the field. Could be okay.

Really hoping for some more OL boys come FA time.
