Sure, the draft is going to be a lesser event for Seahawks fans this year, as the Seahawks only have picks in rounds 2, 4 and 6. But seeing what everybody might do is still part of the buzz of the draft.
This is the first edition of my full mock draft. I first compiled this prior to the full draft order including compensatory picks being known. Then I made a second list after those picks were announced, and now this version will take into account trades, cuts, etc., made through the first week of free agency.
In this piece I will cover round 1 only, I will cover rounds 2 & 3 in an additional piece and then the last four rounds in a final piece. This is who I think goes where in round one.
Will the Seattle Seahawks move up into round one of the 2021 NFL draft?
Pick 1 – Trevor Lawrence – QB – Clemson – Jacksonville
Whilst I am personally not convinced Lawrence is the generational talent others seem convinced he is. He has to be the choice of the Jags with the first pick.
I think there may even be a couple of QBs in this draft that might be at least as good as Lawrence in the long term. Jags fans will hope he is the special one that is going to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Jacksonville.
Pick 2 – Zach Wilson – QB – BYU – NY Jets
Wilson is the first of those QBs that could rival Lawrence throughout his NFL career. Whilst he is not the refined, physical specimen that Lawrence is, Wilson has great instincts and play-making ability that could bring joy to the hearts of the long-suffering Jets fans.
