It’s beginning to look a lot like defense.

Sorry. Had to.

That’s because the Seahawks made Florida State defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas their seemingly final pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, taking him in the sixth round with the 209th overall pick.

We say seemingly because the Seahawks actually traded back into the seven round after taking Christmas to pick up Hawaii wide receiver John Ursua.

The 6-foot-3, 293-pound Christmas was the second defensive lineman taken by the Seahawks in the draft, following first-round pick L.J. Collier, a defensive end from TCU.

Christmas was named third-team All-ACC and Florida State’s Most Valuable Defensive Lineman as a redshirt senior in 2018, when he made 28 tackles, three tackles for loss, two pass breakups and one quarterback hurry. He appeared in 51 games with 38 starts in his career at Florida State.
