Tracking the QBs Seahawks should take in the 2023 NFL draft: Week 4
While the Denver Broncos look like they may be in some real trouble with their decision to trade and pay Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks have seen solid play from Geno Smith through three games.
Their record may not show it, but Geno has been legitimately solid.
That being said, you can’t think the Seahawks won’t look to improve the position for the short term and the long term.
Top 10 QBs the Seahawks should look to choose in the 2023 NFL draft: Week 4
Number 10: Tanner McKee & Tyler Van Dyke
Previous: Michael Penix Jr.
It’s been a rough season for two quarterbacks that were initially projected as first-round picks before the season started.
Both QBs look overwhelmed and are being asked to do too much with too little. Stanford is a shell of the program it was a decade ago, and Tanner just doesn’t have the time to make the plays needed.
Van Dyke, shockingly, was benched after a couple of interceptions in the Hurricanes embarrassing loss to Middle Tennessee State. Van Dyke is better than what he’s shown, but Mario Cristobal has ruined his development for this season. While I still believe in Van Dyke, you have to wonder if he’ll transfer this off-season to rebuild his draft stock or take his chances in the draft this spring.
NFL Comp: Joe Flacco and Mac Jones
Number 9: Jaden Hall
Previous: KJ Jefferson
After a rough showing in their loss at Oregon, Jaden Hall rebounds and finds himself back on the list. In a victory over a quality Wyoming team, Hall dazzled, throwing for 337 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 38-24 victory.
NFL Comp: Zach Wilson
Number 8: Dillon Gabriel
Previous: Tyler Van Dyke
Gabriel threw 26/39 for 4 touchdowns and zero interceptions while totaling nearly 400 yards…and Sooner fans are talking about benching him.
This is life at Oklahoma, where you must score 50 to protect your team from yet another year of disappointing defense. Gabriel played well, but the issue is that he tends to start games slow, and he missed two critical throws in the fourth quarter of their shocking 41-34 upset loss at home to Kansas State. Gabriel and the Sooners should rebound, but the slow starts are something to monitor.
NFL Comp: Tua mixed with early Russell Wilson
