Seattle Seahawks 2022 Draft: 3 potential day one trades
By Jake Luppino
Trade number 2: Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers
Like the New Orleans Saints, the Green Bay Packers would like to leapfrog a bunch of teams with hopes of landing their guy. But, unlike New Orleans, Green Bay would be hoping to draft a wide receiver. The blockbuster deal that sent WR Davantae Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders leaves Green Bay with a gaping hole at wideout. Many are expecting at least five wide receivers to be selected in the first round, so it would make sense for Green Bay to move up to 9 to get the first or second-best guy.
For Seattle, it would once again leave them with four picks in the top 41. Picks 22 and 28 would give Seattle a similar feel to the draft as they have been used to picking in the bottom half of the last decade. They could look to deal the 28th pick for more picks, but I think using both of them would be the more ideal option. Here are a couple of names to look out for.
At 6-feet tall, 200 pounds, Booth certainly fits the prototypically CB1 stature. He is an ultra-competitive player with a high ceiling. He and Tre Brown would be a nice core to build around for years to come.
At 6’5″, 333 pounds, Jones can be used in the 0 technique (nose tackle) spot in 3-4. Despite having Poona Ford and Al Woods on the roster, Jones’ size and stature will allow him to be a rotational piece who will further develop over time.
Versatile Kenyon Green out of Texas A&M was a five-star recruit out of high school as a left tackle, but played guard most of his college career. In 2021, he played both tackle and guard spots. He’d fill a major hole in this offensive line.
Bernhard Raimann, the tight end transitioned into left tackle is right up Pete Carroll’s alley. Only one year into playing the tackle position, Raimann has made a name for himself as a standout prospect in what is known as an impressive draft class.
