Let’s play a game where the Seattle Seahawks can steal one player from every NFC South team and anyone on the roster is up for grabs.

What does the future hold for the Seattle Seahawks? It’s anyone’s guess at this point, especially with all of the problems our world is currently faced with. Instead of sulking, though, I came up with a serious of “what if” situations that should make this offseason slightly more entertaining.

In these hypothetical scenarios, I’ll be examining the top options to steal from opponents within a specific division. The series began with the Seahawks’ all-too-familiar NFC West, then headed to the opposite coast and the NFC East, ventured upwards to the NFC North and now found its way down to the NFC South.

Unlike previous installations of this series, these steals didn’t come as easily as I was hoping. I had a plan going in to fix the defense, but the lack of elite defensive options on the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers threw me off. The New Orleans Saints were also tough considering their wealth of talent while thieving from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a quick decision.

To help you understand the purpose, I primarily focused on fixing the Seahawks’ current problems while assuming all four players I picked would be simultaneously added to the mix. I also didn’t take the salary cap into consideration when making my selections. Either way, the players I plucked for the Seahawks were more than enough to make them Super Bowl contenders in 2020.

So let’s get this party started. These are the players I believe the Seahawks would steal from their NFC South foes if presented the opportunity.
