2. Poona Ford, DT, Seahawks
The Seahawks probably didn’t see defensive tackle Poona Ford coming.
Well, OK, they saw him coming. The guy’s 310 pounds.
But they weren’t counting on him emerging this preseason.
Cleveland figures to have a surplus of guys capable of playing the EDGE, but the interior doesn’t run that deep.
Ford played collegiately at the University of Texas, playing in 35 games over the past three years while totaling 124 tackles.
Ford is only 22 and went undrafted. One reason may be is that he’s listed at 5-feet-11. So while he carries the weight required to play in the NFL trenches, he lacks the traditional height.
Entering preseason Week 3, Ford had an 84.4 grade according to PFF, which was the best among Seattle defenders.
The Seahawks would be foolish to let him go just to keep some backup free agents on the board. But if they do, the Browns should pounce.
