The Seattle Seahawks have cut ties with 2017 second round pick Malik McDowell.

McDowell, a defensive end from Michigan State whom the Seahawks chose with the 35th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft never played a snap for Seattle. MFST scouts every NFL draft prospect leading up to the draft itself and we had called McDowell a BUST waiting to happen.

It was a shock when he was drafted so early in round two, being a pure potential draft pick. He never really saw a lot of success on the football field when he was in college.

Injuries certainly didn’t help his career…

Last summer McDowell was seriously injured in an ATV crash, and he never played as a rookie. It is unclear whether he’ll ever be healthy enough to play football again. It is also unclear whether the Seahawks will go after any of the $3.19 million signing bonus they paid to McDowell, as teams sometimes do when a player can’t play because of a non-football injury.

For all the success Seattle has seen, they haven’t had a lot of successful draft picks lately.
