The Super Bowl is now in our rearview mirrors which means it’s the mock draft season. There is no better way to start your week than by looking at a Seahawks Mock Draft 3 months before we know anything!
In what I am hoping will be a series, I’ll be completing a mock draft every week from now until the Seahawks make their first selection in the final week of April. While we will occasionally impose some challenges on ourselves, for this first mock, let’s keep things nice and simple.
So here are the rules we will be following: our mock draft will be conducted on Fanspeak.com Mock Draft Simulator. We are working with some unknowns. For example, the NFL hasn’t announced the compensatory draft selections. We think Seattle will have a comp pick at the end of the third, fourth, and sixth, and we will be proceeding as such, but we don’t know for sure.
So the Seahawks will have one pick in the first round (27), two in the second, one in the third, two in the fourth, and one each in the 5th and 6th round. We won’t be making any trades in this mock draft, something John Schneider will almost certainly look to do once again this year.
Obviously, there are any number of needs Seattle could address in this draft, including edge rusher, offensive tackle and guard, center, wide receiver, tight end, cornerback, quarterback, and defensive tackle.
They need help at every level, but they can’t possibly answer all those needs in the draft. They’ll fix a few holes in free agency and once that happens we’ll have a better idea of what they need to do in the draft.
But with all of these questions left unanswered, we are going to give it the old college try and do our best to produce a somewhat realistic draft for your enjoyment.
