Jackson Jeffcoat: He was a free agent signing after the draft and this guy fits right in with the Seahawks, because as Doug Baldwin would say, he doesn't have a chip on his shoulder - he has a boulder. Jeffcoat, the son of former Cowboys Defensive Lineman Jim Jeffcoat, was named as college football's top defensive end last season at the University of Texas, but not one team drafted him. He could fit in nicely with the Seahawks defensive line rotation that is aimed at giving offenses different looks while reducing the wear and tear on players throughout a game and a season. Jeffcoat wants to turn his negative experience with the draft into a positive with the Seahawks. He joins a roster full of players that were misjudged, drafted late or not drafted at all, he should fit right in.
