Oklahoma WR Malcolm Kelly

Draft Profile

ChiefSuni with the pick:

The Seahawks are in an interesting position going into this season as they try to make the most of Holmgren's last year while also laying the groundwork for the Mora era. They have had an active offseason, with notable acquisitions at RB and OL, and they also resigned Lofa Tatupu and Marcus Trufant to long term deals. Bringing in Malcom Kelly gives them a player who can help fill an immediate need for Holmgren's last hurrah but who will also be ready to transition into a #1 target in future years.

While Kelly has been known for durability concerns, his talent is undeniable. He's had impressive statistics at OU and has all the tools to be a great NFL WR. The Seahawks need to add depth at WR as Hackett was lost in free agency, Branch's injury is still a question mark, Burleson is inconsistent, and Engram, though dependable, is aging and badly needs someone else to step it up.

Other players considered for this pick were Balmer (lesser need and less proven, plus let's face it, this is a Chiefs site and we all hate UNC DTs thanks to Ryan Sims), Fred Davis (a reach and Engram already is their short yardage, middle of the field guy), Jonathan Stewart (they already got two new free agent RBs), and Manningham (less upside than Kelly).
