Seahawks Will Host Safety in April

Scout.com draft analyst Chris Steuber has learned that the Seahawks are looking at a Pac-10 safety as a possibility in the 2010 draft.

There’s no question that the Seattle Seahawks are looking for help at safety. The Seahawks decided to sever ties with veteran Deon Grant and his overpriced salary this offseason, and it’s possible that they will select Tennessee’s Eric Berry with the 6th overall selection in the draft, if he’s still on the board. But even if the Seahawks select a safety high in the draft, they will still search for depth in the secondary. With that said, Scout.com has learned that the Seahawks will host California free safety Brett Johnson in Seattle on April 7th.

A two-year starter at California, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Johnson wasn’t invited to an All-Star Game or the Scouting Combine this offseason, but he showcased his athleticism and skill at Cal’s Pro Day on March 10th. Johnson had a stellar performance at Memorial Stadium and produced some amazing numbers in front of all 32 NFL teams.

He recorded the best 40-time, which was clocked as low as 4.30, set a Cal record in the vertical jump with a 42.5-inch effort and exploded for a 10-foot-9-inch broad jump. Johnson’s impressive Pro Day will make him an intriguing mid-to-late round selection and will force teams to reevaluate his film from this past season; a season where he registered just 52 tackles and an interception.
