No. 5: Seattle (via DEN) selects Illinois CB Devon Witherspoon— SB Nation (@SBNation) April 28, 2023

The toughest player pound-for-pound in this draft is Devon Witherspoon.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 28, 2023
The Seahawks just got one of the feistiest cornerbacks we've seen in a long time. He's going to fit in perfectly in Seattle and be an absolute tone setter for that defense.
WOW!!! Thought for sure Devon Witherspoon was going No. 6 to Detroit with Jalen Carter on the board.— Brad Evans (@NoisyHuevos) April 28, 2023
He's a true island corner. Will be an instant studs. Has no weaknesses. Unreal player. Unbelievable all-around defensive game.
One more time for those in the back.
