yWelcome to Part Eight!

Let’s start with some good news.

In Part Six, you identified 4 areas that are HIGH priorities - Guard, Center, Cornerback, and Defensive End - and a 5th area (Running Back) that is a MEDIUM priority.

In Part Seven, you were asked to make some decisions about those positions.

Thanks to the decisions you made in the previous installments, the Seahawks had $33,748,844 in available cap space when free agency opened.

And YOU USED IT.

Some of it right away (i.e. “Wave 1”) and some of it later on (i.e. “Wave 2”)

All told, the free agents you signed will account for $27M in cap space in 2021. In theory, that means you only have $6,748,844 of cap space left.

However, because you now have 60 players under contract and only the Top 51 contracts “count” against the cap, you actually have $8,892,390 of cap space remaining

And . . .

You have addressed ALL FIVE of your identified “areas of need” - to some extent.

Free Agent Signees

  • Matt Feiler (Guard): 2 years, $12M ($8M guaranteed); 2021 cap hit is $4.05M
  • Corey Linsley (Center): 3 years, $33M ($16.5M guaranteed); 2021 cap hit is $6.8M
  • Kevin King (Cornerback): 1 year, $5M ($1.5M guaranteed)
  • Leonard Floyd (Defensive End): 3 years, $40M ($22.5M guaranteed); 2021 cap hit is $7.65M
  • Mike Davis (Running Back): 2 years, $8.5M ($5M guaranteed); 2021 cap hit is $3.5M

NOTE: As usual, detailed contract information is in the Bonus Coverage section at the end of the article.



Seahawks Depth Chart, Pre-Draft

Here is what the depth chart looks like as Seattle prepares for the NFL Draft.

Seahawks Depth Chart heading into Draft Week (HYPOTHETICAL)


The NFL Draft

As Draft Week begins, you gather your staff in the war room at Seahawks HQ and discuss your options for the four picks you currently have: #55 (R2), #129 (R4), #168 (R5), and #209 (R6).

You remind your staff that since coming to Seattle, you (JS/PC) have never made less than 8 picks in any draft.

You admit that this year might be the first time you select less than 8 players.

Or maybe not.


Here’s where things gets fun.


In the Comments section of one of the earlier installments, someone compared this series to a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book. And it kind of is. And it is about to become even more so.

For each of the Seahawks current picks (plus one hypothetical pick), you will be given a pair of choices.

  • Option One: Keep the pick and use it on your choice of positions (ex. Guard, Tackle, Kicker);

  • Option Two: Invite trade offers and choose to accept one of them - and then decide how to use the resulting pick(s)

We all know that John Schneider could turn the 4 picks Seattle has into 8 picks, 9 picks, maybe 10 or more picks - even with the first pick not coming until Round 2.

In theory, you will be able to do that that as well - - - if you choose to. But you will have to do it within a very confined set of options.

Now for the caveat.

You get to pick the position - but your “scouting department” gets to pick the player.

Let me explain what that means . . .

For each choice you make, your scouting department (aka PFF’s 2021 NFL Draft “Big Board” combined with their NFL Mock Draft Simulator) will choose the proverbial Best Player Available at a position that was in your Top 3 for that draft pick.

As an example, if you choose to KEEP pick #55 and choose Running Back as the position to target with that pick, you will (probably) get either North Carolina’s Javonte Williams (#58 on PFF’s board) or Najee Harris (#67). If you’re lucky, maybe Clemson’s Travis Etienne (#39) is still available.

You will not be using pick #55 to select Virginia Tech’s Khalil Herbert or Ohio State’s Trey Sermon (#147) or Oklahoma’s Rhamondre Stevenson (#165).

The reason for “top 3” instead of “top 1” is that (a) you don’t want to “reach” (too far) for a player based on need; and (b) if we’re looking at the Round 4 pick (#129) and your top choice is Guard but you’ve already drafted a Guard in Round 2 (with pick #55) then you’re probably not going to be picking another Guard in Round 4.

One other caveat.

If the player selected with a given pick isn’t a player at your #1 position for that pick, your scouting department will automatically add the position as a priority for the next selection.

So, as an example, if you choose Running Back as your #1 option for pick #55 and the team ends up selecting a Guard then Running Back will automatically join the priority list for pick #129.

Putting that another way, you don’t need to choose the same position as your top priority for EVERY pick.


Hopefully that all makes sense.

Either way, let’s start with a Pre-Draft decision for you to make . . .

Poll #DD.01

The Miami Dolphins call you. They need a Wide Receiver and heard that you were quietly “shopping” Tyler Lockett.

Miami has the cap room to absorb the $12.7M he is due this year and know that you wouldn’t be shopping him if you were concerned about the $2.25M dead money hit you’d incur.

The Dolphins also plan to sign Lockett to a 4-year contract extension as soon as he gets to Miami so the fact that he is in the final year of his current deal doesn’t concern them.

The Dolphins have TWO offers for you to consider:

  • Offer #1: The second of Miami’s two 2nd round picks this year (#50 overall) for Lockett

  • Offer #2: Miami’s FIRST ROUND pick next year for Lockett and the 2022 4th Round pick that Seattle got from the Jets

Do you accept either offer and, if so, which one?

NOTE: Within this series, this is a binding decision and there will be a poll that asks what you would do with pick #50 (if you have it) in the “NFL Draft - Day Two” section.

The NFL Draft - Day One

Crickets.

Nothing but crickets.

No first round pick means you’re twiddling your thumbs.

And getting ready for Day Two.


The NFL Draft - Day Two

Pick #50 (Round 2)

IF you traded Tyler Lockett to Miami and IF you accepted the offer that included the second of their two 2nd round picks (#50 overall) then THIS is the first time that you’ll be making a selection.

You receive 4 offers from teams wanting to move up to #50

  • Offer #1: The Rams offer pick #57 and their 2022 R3

  • Offer #2: Buffalo offers #61 and #93

  • Offer #3: Philadelphia offers #70 and #84

  • Offer #4: The Panthers offer pick #73 and their 2022 R2

The NFL Draft - Day Three

At this point, you’ve filled in most of the holes on the roster. How will you use the picks you have today?

NOTE: You may have traded one of your Day Three picks on Day Two. Since the polls are still open, we don’t know. For now, assume that you still have all of your Day Three picks.

Pick #129 (Round 4)

You receive three offers for your Round 4 pick. One of the offers would see you get FOUR picks in return. The other two are just your standard 2-for-1 trades.

  • Offer #1: Jacksonville offers #130 and #248

  • Offer #2: The Packers offer #135 and #173

  • Offer #2: The Jaguars offer #227 and #248

  • Offer #3: Houston offers #229 and their 6th Round pick in 2022

Poll #DD.17

Alright, the NFL Draft is over, but there TWO MORE QUESTIONS for you to answer.

Poll #DD.20

How many picks did YOU end up making in the draft?

For example:

  • If you traded Tyler Lockett to Miami and got pick #50, but didn’t make any other trades, you would have made 5 selections. (#50, #55, #129, #168, and #209)

  • If you kept Tyler and the only trade you made was when Carolina offered you FOUR picks for pick #29 the you would have made 7 selections. (#55, #151, #168, #192, #196, #209 and #224)

  • If you MAXED OUT on picks, including trading Tyler Locker and then trading the pick that you got for him (#50), then the could have made as many as 12 selections - - 13 if you traded a 2022 R7 to Tampa Bay with Pick #168.

Were there any offers you chose not to accept specifically because you didn’t want to do a trade with (insert the name of the team here).

As an example, I (Frank T. Raines) would have a really hard time sending pick #50 to the Rams. :p
