He wouldn't be the joker tight end that everyone thinks Seattle's going to go after but maybe Seattle does something unique like this instead? I really like Miller and McCoy as a duo and Cameron Moorah is still on the roster, and he has some experience playing out wide for the Hawks.
Who knows, maybe Tom Cable envisions him beefing up and being an excellent right prospect? Ya never know with these guys.
I liked him early too. Honestly, he's going to be there in the 7th round.
One you might look at is Justice Cunningham (S. Carolina). He's an accomplished blocker too, much more agile and flexible than Michael. He shows this repeatedly in his ability to secure seal blocks on the edge, and when he lines up/motions to a FB position and is used as a lead blocker in the "I".
His receiving skills are much superior to Wiliams' however. He's a guy that probably lasts to the 6th round. If we're looking at Michael Williams, I'd have to think he'd be the backup/contingency if Cunningham isn't available.
