We’re one-third of the way into the 2022 Seattle Seahawks season, and so far the Seahawks sit at 3-3 and in contention for the NFC West, while the Denver Broncos are a very uninspired 2-4 and are dead last in points scored. Seattle has two first- and second-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft as a result of the Russell Wilson trade, which is seemingly going south very quickly on Denver with his lackluster play.
This week, Field Gulls Podcast host Dan Viens conducted a mock draft using the current standings. In his mock draft the Seahawks pick 5th (Denver’s) and 14th (Seattle’s own), but I believe the tiebreakers actually would have Seattle picking 7th. It’s a mock draft, so don’t get too worked up! Anyway, there were a couple of hypothetical trades made to get us to seven picks.
Does the first of the two Seahawks firsts have to be for a QB? Not necessarily. I’ll spoil the picks for you but not the analysis, which you can get by listening to the audio player below:
Round 1 - Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia
Round 1 - Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida
Round 2 - Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech
Round 2 - DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas
