The Seattle Seahawks have finally taken a swing at their "rare opportunity," selecting Illinois cornerback Devon Witherspoon with the No. 5 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft in Kansas City on Thursday.

Despite some rumblings of potentially trading down, the Seahawks stood pat and made the pick, adding a young play-maker to their budding secondary.

"There are some minor concerns about Witherspoon’s size, but his elite agility, instincts, and ability to consistently stay attached to wide receivers warrant a top 60 selection in the 2023 NFL Draft," SI's NFL Draft Bible writes on Witherspoon's evaluation.
