Here we go, the Seattle Seahawks have used pick 56 overall in the 2021 NFL draft to add wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge out of Western Michigan. Many of us wanted to get an offensive lineman, many wanted a corner, and many wanted a receiver, and those that wanted a WR got their wish!
Eskridge is a 5’9”, 190 receiver who ran a 4.40 40 at his pro day after accumulating over 2,000 receiving yards during his career at Western Michigan.

Per Bleacher Report: HEIGHT: 5’8 3/4″ WEIGHT: 190 POSITIVES:
— Plays bigger than listed size. Consistently displays toughness and competitiveness in his physicality in blocking and on routes.
— Good athlete who has the ability to take any catch the distance. Top-end straight-line speed with good acceleration.
— Consistently generates yards after the catch. More of a one-cut and split runner with the ball in his hands than one who makes several guys miss in a phonebooth.
— Has lots of experience playing on the outside, even with size limitations.
— Had production as a kick returner his senior year and was a two-way player as a CB and WR in 2019.
Our co-founders, George & Sami Jarjour of Pod That, really loved this pick!
I know we wanted offensive line help but us #Seahawk fans are going to enjoy watching D’Wayne Eskridge ?
