A significant amount of trades this offseason have made the new NFL year a pretty fun one. Top that off with the biggest names in free agency finding new homes and all that’s left before we get into preparations for a new season is the 2015 NFL draft.

Every team has needs that must be addressed through the draft. It doesn’t matter if you’re the general manager of the Oakland Raiders or the Seattle Seahawks. The draft is where you can find someone like Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson in the later rounds and turn what would be a decent team into one that is favored to win the Super Bowl three years running.
I would say it’s quite unfortunate that the Seahawks traded away their top draft pick…
I WOULD say that if it didn’t result in Seattle already addressing their biggest need before the NFL draft even began.
A week ago there was no question that drafting a wide receiver or tight end that could become the primary target for Wilson was the front office’s top priority. With the acquisition of one of the top tight end’s in football, Jimmy Graham is the perfect weapon to add to the Seahawks offense.
That means that Seattle’s draft needs have obviously changed, and we’re going to look at the area’s the team still needs to work on to make their third straight Super Bowl appearance this upcoming season.
