In this mock draft (this time using Pro Football Network’s simulator), the Seattle Seahawks end up with 11 picks, rebuild their offensive line and potentially find a quarterback for the future.
Now before it is pointed out to me that so-and-so isn’t going to last until this-and-this round, I want to remind you, the players on this list were still around to take, per Pro Football Network, when they were taken.
Plus, I really hope that the Seahawks draft turns out like this because Seattle would get some very good long-term players. Also, the fun part about Pro Football Network’s simulator is that it offers you trades and you can accept the trade or reject it. For this exercise, I accepted three trades and turned down several more.
Here is hopefully what the Seahawks 2022 draft class looks like.
Seahawks mock draft 7.0: An offensive line for the future
I don’t think Ekwonu will be around at pick 12 but if Pro Football Network is correct and he is, I am not going to complain. Ekwonu will fall to Seattle at 12 after the Vikings trade their 12th overall choice along with the 46th overall. Adding Ekwonu, a legit day-one starter at either right or left tackle, is just the beginning of taking a relatively mediocre Seattle offensive line and making it great.
Ekwonu plays with tenacity, is great in the locker room, is quick and strong. What else does one need in an offensive tackle? Plus, I think Seattle re-signed Duane Brown on a one-year deal, has Ekwonu start at right tackle and then flips Ekwonu to the left side in 2023 where he should start for many seasons.
