The Seattle Seahawks need to do some rebuilding for next season and some pieces should come in the 2022 NFL draft. Seattle, of course, gave away their first round choice in this year’s draft to add Jamal Adams in the 2020 offseason. But Seattle will have a fairly high choice in the second round.
Assuming Seattle doesn’t do anything drastic like trading Russell Wilson for draft picks, Seattle won’t have a good chance of moving up into the first round. If the season were to end right now, Seattle’s first pick would be the 41st overall. That is still a good stop to get a good player who can start and should be able to help for several seasons.
While Dee Eskridge hasn’t helped a ton this season, he could still be good in the future and he was Seattle’s second round choice in 2021. In 2020, Seattle chose Darrell Taylor in the second round and while he missed 2021, he has shown enough this season to imply he will be one of the most important pieces of the defense for many years.
Potential Seattle Seahawks draft picks in the CFB Championship game
In 2019, Seattle took some guy named DK Metcalf and he has turned out to be pretty good and Metcalf did help in his rookie year. Metcalf needs to be a receiver in a Seahawks uniform for the foreseeable future no matter who the quarterback for Seattle is.
But which players should Seahawks fans be watching in the CFB Championship game between Alabama and Georgia with the potential they end up as part of the Seattle organization in the 2022 NFL draft? Maybe these four.
