Grading the entire Seahawks 2022 NFL draft class; Hint: it was good
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks entered the 2022 NFL draft with a bunch of needs for long-term fixes. On almost every level, Seattle successfully addressed those needs.
Time will tell, of course, but to me, this could be John Schneider and Pete Carroll’s best draft class since 2012. Of course, 2012 was one of the best drafts in NFL history, not just Seattle history. Both Bobby Wagner and Russell Wilson came to Seattle in 2012.
It would seem as if Seattle’s offensive tackles are set for at least four years and should be a high-level combo. Charles Cross will likely end up at left tackle and Abe Lucas at right tackle. While 2022 might be an iffy season for two rookie tackles learning how to play in the league, drafts are made for long-term success and Cross and Lucas should be very good by 2023.

Seattle also needed to find help at edge rusher and cornerback and found players who could immediately be impactful. The Seahawks didn’t reach for a defensive tackle but it would appear the roster is currently set with good and veteran run-stoppers at defensive tackle.
But the cornerbacks they were able to take in rounds four and five might just be the foundation for the next Legion of Boom, and one player physically resembles Richard Sherman quite a bit.
Here is how the Seattle Seahawks entire draft class graded and how fast they could help Seattle in the future.
