McDowell Ronald Powell Jersey, taken 35th overall in last year s draft https://www.seahawksseastore.com/jimmy-graham-jersey-c-80.html, was expected to bolster the Seahawks defensive line in the years to come. At Michigan State for three seasons, McDowell racked up 7.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for a loss, an interception https://www.seahawksseastore.com/marcus-lucas-jersey-c-78.html, two forced fumbles, and 50 solo tackles. Entering the NFL Draft, McDowell was projected to be a first round pick and NFL.com s Lance Zierlein compared him to Lions Pro Bowl pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah.

But before his first NFL training camp, McDowell was injured in a vehicular accident. NFL Network s Mike Garofolo reported at the time that McDowell got hurt riding an ATV, and suffered a concussion and injuries to his face. He missed the entire 2017 season and according to Rapoport, he still hasn t been cleared to play. At the time of the crash, McDowell said that his injury is not life or career threatening as some have speculated and that you will see me back on the field in the near future. Hopefully, regardless of where he lands, McDowell can eventually experience a complete recovery.

For the Seahawks, who find themselves in the middle of a reset not a rebuild , McDowell is yet another early miss in the draft.The Seahawks ineffective drafting in recent years is partly to blame for their recent decline. Last season, the Seahawks missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011 and they ve spent the offseason moving on from Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett, Jimmy Graham https://www.seahawksseastore.com/steve-donatell-jersey-c-79.html, and Sheldon Richardson. More changes might be coming. Earl Thomas has been floated in trade discussions, and it s not clear if Cliff Avril and Kam Chancellor will be able to play football again. Meanwhile, the teams surrounding the Seahawks the Rams and 49ers, namely have only gotten stronger over the past year.
