The 2019 NFL Draft is at the end of April. How good is each position unit for the Seahawks and how can they fix issues in the draft.
With the Seahawks only currently having four picks in the NFL draft, there is only so much they can do to fix problems with players who will be rookies in 2019. Of course, we all know general manager John Schneider will get out his voodoo doll and work some black magic and get Seattle several more picks.
Schneider won’t have to try fix some position units via the draft, though. Some units, like quarterback (Hello! Russell Wilson!), are already really good. Other position groups need help (Frank Clark can’t do it alone, people!).
Seattle has addressed some issues through free agency already. Jason Myers was brought in to be the kicker for the next several years. Hopefully he will be much more consistent and reliable than either Blair Walsh or Sebastian Janikowski were the last couple of seasons.
Other needs will try to be fixed through this month’s NFL Draft. Though Seattle currently only has four picks in the draft, they will get more through trades. Seattle getting to seven picks would seem logical. It also wouldn’t be surprising to see Seattle trade completely out of the first round. Seattle currently has a draft pick in rounds one, three, four and five.
So how good is each position group for Seattle heading into this year’s draft and can any issues be fixed by 2019 rookies? Here’s my best guess. And I am also going to assume that Seattle has more than four picks by the end of the draft.
