With their final pick of the 2021 NFL Draft the Seahawks strengthened their OL depth by selecting Stone Forsythe OT from Florida. Forsythe projects as depth for his first few years, he has the potential to develop into a solid starter over the next few years, and could potentially start day 1 on the interior.
At 6’9″ 312-pounds Stone Forsythe played four years, starting two and progressed each year into a more efficient, controlled player. He has some tendency to rise up in his blocks, but his natural size and power makes him an ideal player to develop into a solid NFL starter.
STONE FORSYTHE HAS INSIDE/OUTSIDE VERSATILITY
Draft Network had this to say about him ,”Florida offensive tackle Stone Forsythe projects as a viable starting-caliber offensive tackle at the pro level. Forsythe, who is the son of former NFL offensive lineman Ray Forsythe, started the final 25 games of his career with the Florida Gators at left tackle—but he has taken reps on the right side of the line as well and that added flexibility should afford teams more appeal as a potential swing tackle early in his career while he works on some of the finer points of his game.“
