Tuesday Round-Up: Michael Bumpus Believes Seahawks Struck Gold In Seventh Round – Seahawks.com

Seahawks.com Writer
Good afternoon, 12s. Here’s a look at what’s out there today – Tuesday, June 21 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
In April’s 2022 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected a pair of wideouts in the seventh round – Rutgers’ Bo Melton (No. 229) and Lenoir-Rhyne’s Dareke Young (No. 233). Seahawks Legend and Washington State alum Michael Bumpus is now a full-time host for Seattle Sports 710AM. As part of his series breaking down the Seahawks draft class, Bumpus takes a look at the new wideouts and what they can possibly bring to Seattle. Bumpus begins with Melton, the versatile athlete who did a bit of everything for the Scarlet Knights. Melton followed the family tradition, playing at Rutgers as his parents did.
“What I like about this dude is, he can do it all,” said Bumpus “He’s good in the reverse game, he’s good in the jet sweep game. At the top of his routes he does a great job creating separation and going and making the big catch. He’s 5’11” but primarily plays outside, he has a lot of speed to go with his game.”
The Senior Bowl participant clocked a 4.34 official 40 time at the 2022 NFL Combine. Aside from consecutive seasons over 500 receiving yards to close out his career at Rutgers, Melton used his blazing speed to average 25.9 yards per kickoff return for his career.
Senior Bowl Director and former Seahawks scout Jim Nagy chimed in on the Seahawks class on Twitter, with high optimism for Melton’s career.
☕️ CB Tariq Woolen- Developmental but rare physical gifts. Thought he’d go Round 3. 📈
☕️ OLB Tyreke Smith- Underrated pick. Combative, high motor every-down player. Fits Hawks style.
☕️ WR Bo Melton- Quick AND fast slot. Will be better pro than college player. Could be steal.
Bumpus also shared high praise for the potential of Young, who became the No.10 overall Lenoir-Rhyne player drafted in school history, and the second since 2000.
“This guy is big and he’s versatile,” said Bumpus “I’ve seen him play tight end, the slot and outside. With that size, he’s a mismatch for anybody who lines up against him.”
Young was selected to participate in the 2022 NFL Shrine Bowl, and considered a “Sleeper” by the NFL Network before the Seahawks selected him in Round 7. The physical 6’3 wideout has former wide receiver coach Devin Figaro singing his praises to Sports Illustrated’s Corbin Smith, saying he has the “Intangibles to Be Great”
