Los Angeles Rams
Darious Williams, cornerback
Seattle’s corners weren’t as bad as one may have assumed they were going to be heading into the 2021 season but that is partly the Seahawks fault. Seattle made a number of changes just before the season – trading away Ahkello Witherspoon, trading for Sidney Jones, signing John Reid, etc. – that made it appear the team was in separation mode to find another good corner besides D.J. Reed. Jones played better as the season went on but Darious Williams would be the best corner on the Seahawks roster.
Williams is a pure outside corner. He is only 5’9″ and struggles against tight ends that are more physical. But against any wide receiver who has to use speed to get open, Williams can lock them down. And Seattle needs an outside corner opposite Reed (assuming the re-sign Reed) that would give Seattle two excellent corners to help fix the pass defense.
Von Miller, edge rusher
Von Miller seems like he has been in the NFL for 35 years and while he has played for 10 seasons and will be 33 years old in 2022, he is still very good. Miller had 5 sacks in 8 games for the Rams after being traded mid-year from the Broncos. He still had 9.5 sacks overall in 15 games. Miller hasn’t had fewer than 17 quarterback hits in any season he has played since 2013 when he missed 7 games.
But as good as Miller is in getting to the quarterback he is also excellent in run defense. It’s easy to overlook how good he is in run defense, in fact, because of the raw statistics he has in sacks. But according to Pro Football Focus, Miller has never graded less than an 80 in run defense. He should be signed to a one-year deal at whatever rate it takes to get him to Seattle.
