The Seahawks do not have a draft pick in the first round so far in 2021. But other (lesser) teams do! Here are some stupid predictions of what might happen. You don’t have to agree with them (if you do, you might need to seek mental treatment) but hopefully, you will find them thoroughly interesting and pass them on for generations to come.
Before I get into my quick three predictions, I have to eat up space because the way we do things here at FanSided means the header needs to come after paragraph three. Smarter people than I am make the formatting decisions and Google makes the final one for lots of sites so here we are.
By the way, the paragraph above is not a prediction and an actual fact but now I am three paragraphs in so let’s begin!
Seahawks won’t change but other teams will
Stupid prediction number one – Aaron Rodgers gets traded
So at some point today I saw where Aaron Rodgers was trending because he is upset and yet also saw where his backup, Jordan Love, might just become the Packers starter in 2021. So much drama! And this is probably blown all out of proportion because it’s a day to make a lot of NFL news.
But in my first dumb prediction, I say Rodgers gets traded to San Francisco 49ers for the third pick in the draft and for a player to be named later, like Buster Posey. With that pick, the Packers chose a center.
Stupid prediction number two – The Jaguars pick Zach Wilson with the first pick
To be fair the Jaguars appear to be trying to be the Seahawks so badly (they seemingly have signed every Seattle player from the last 20 years recently) that I wouldn’t be surprised if they traded back to get 34 picks in the rest of the draft by giving up the first one. But instead, I think the Jaguars stand pat only to choose Wilson and not Trevor Lawrence.
Stupid prediction number three – Seahawks trade Russell Wilson to get two first round picks
No, this won’t happen nor should it. But here’s one last shot across the bow that everyone else has been writing about. Seattle does the unexpected and trades up in the draft. Way up. Seattle trades Wilson to the Dolphins for picks 6 and 18. In 2021, Wilson wins a Super Bowl with Miami next year while neither of the Seahawks picks will be on the team by 2024.
