12s, waiting for the Seattle Seahawks to make a huge move at quarterback and make the future great? Well, according to ESPN, that is going to happen but in the 2023 NFL draft.
Forget Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud, though. While Seattle isn’t expected to be great in 2022, the team also has enough talent to not be terrible either. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising for the Seahawks to easily exceed the awfulness that many national pundits expect them to be.
Seattle still has very good, yet young, defensive talent. And two guys who go by the name of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are pretty good too. They just need a good quarterback to get them the ball.
So, fellow 12, if you like BYU’s Jaren Hall, you are going to love this. Per ESPN’s early mock draft for 2023, Seattle is going to choose Hall with the 9th pick next year. ESPN’s Matt Miller writes, “He has big-play ability stacked on a 6-foot-1 frame and can produce with a whip-strong right arm or shifty mobility.”
Seahawks predicted to take BYU QB Jaren Hall in 2023 NFL draft
If Miller is correct, Hall will be the fourth quarterback taken in the first nine picks. Alabama’s Bryce Young, Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud and Kentucky’s Will Levis will be off the board.
2022 was an odd draft anyway. Only one quarterback was taken through the first two rounds and the first went 20th overall when Kenny Pickett was chosen by the Steelers. Miller sees six quarterbacks going in the first round next year.
Hall only has one year with much experience so far so his stock for 2023 could change a lot based on how he does this season. He does seem to take care of the ball well, however, as he has 21 touchdown passes against just 5 interceptions in 342 pass attempts at BYU.
Hall also has an excellent ability to create positive plays with his legs. He has run the ball 95 times in college with an average of 4.7 yards a carry and 6 touchdowns. Hall also knows how to lead his team to victories as BYU was 10-3 last year.
