The NFL Draft has a funny way of sneaking up on you. While the Seahawks are on their run, let’s not forget to dream about what talent awaits them in April.
As we enter the final quarter of the NFL regular season, the Seattle Seahawks are in a great position for the postseason with Russell Wilson having another great season. But the grind to find future for Seattle football never stops.
While it is easy to get caught up in the 2019 season, Seahawks fans should never overlook the NFL Draft. The draft is by far the easiest and cheapest way to build a dynasty, extend windows, and gain valuable assets without forking over tremendous guaranteed deals.
But it is also important to remember that the Seahawks are not participating in the draft alone and the decisions the other 31 franchises make will impact what GM John Schneider and his staff can do in April.
So in order to fully understand why a player or position group makes sense for the Seahawks picking in the bottom 6 of the NFL draft, we need to have an idea of how the first 25 plus picks will go.
Of course, that is impossible to guess right now, but that won’t stop us from trying. But before we begin our first-round mock draft, let’s lay down some ground rules. First, this mock is basically an educated guess. We are still too far away to know who is being connected to whom, so we are going off fit and pure talent evaluations.
Second, there will be no trades in this mock. Maybe down the line, but for now, let’s keep things simple. Our draft order will be determined by the standings after the Seahawks defeat of Minnesota to wrap up Week 13. With that in mind, let’s get started.
