Seattle Seahawks 2023 Draft: 3 potential Day One trades
By Jake Luppino
Trade number 1: Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers
Of all potential deals, one with the Carolina Panthers makes the most sense for the Seattle Seahawks. For Carolina, they have an impatient owner who has been in search of their next franchise quarterback. With a new head coach incoming, they will have an opportunity to start fresh and select whichever one is remaining out of Bryce Young, Will Levis, and C.J. Stroud.
For Seattle, they get to acquire a future first, move four spots down to number 9 and still have their own 1st founder later. More importantly, they would most likely be able to select the guy they would have wanted at 5. Many believe there is a falloff at the defensive line position after Jalen Carter and Will Anderson. Also, will the 2024 first pick from Carolina help Seattle select their franchise QB in Caleb Williams or Drake Maye?
Here are a couple of prospects Seattle could target with pick number 9.
I would guess Tyree Wilson would be the primary target for Seattle if both Carter and Anderson were off the board. He is a lengthy, athletic prospect that was one of the best edge rushers in the Big 12. With his size and speed, he is a high-ceiling prospect.
Similar to Tyree Wilson, Myles Murphy is a lengthy edge rusher who can be polished into a dominant pass rusher. His most impressive attribute is his consistency. If were to show out at the combine, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go in the top 6.
Another Clemson Tiger, Bryan Bresse can fill a major void in the interior of the defensive line for the Seahawks. He has elite power and uses his leverage well in pursuit. Most importantly, he fits the newly adapted 3-4 scheme.
