Whether or not the Seattle Seahawks make the playoffs this season, next year’s NFL Draft is a monumental one for this team. Thanks to the Russell Wilson trade they have a pair of first- and second-round picks. If this franchise is to contend again they really best not waste having potentially four picks in the top-50 come April 2023.
Field Gulls Podcast host Dan Viens and 12th Man Rising’s Michael Thompson conducted a seven-round Seahawks mock draft. Obviously comp picks haven’t been awarded and we’re miles away from finding out the official draft order, but this draft is based on where the Seahawks are positioned at the moment, as well as the picks they currently possess.
Have a gander at who they’ve chosen! No quarterback taken, and heavy on taking players who play in the trenches.
