When the calendar hit December this season, Seahawks fans realized that the dream of having a top-ten pick was not just real, but becoming an expectation. Thanks to the Denver Broncos and Russell Wilson being a massive disappointment, the Seahawks have an opportunity to add a blue-chip talent on a cheap salary at a draft pick slot they haven’t seen in over a decade. So naturally, we’re gonna mock up some drafts!

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be talking about potential mock drafts that could enhance, or completely reshape this roster. For drafting purposes, I used Pro Football Network’s rankings and mock simulator. Unlike PFF, PFN’s big board falls in line with the majority of the draft rankings you can find out there.

I recently was in St. Louis and I had the opportunity to visit the old NFL stadium where the Rams played before leaving for Los Angeles. While most younger fans think of Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp when we talk about the Rams franchise, I think of the Greatest Show on Turf.

Seahawks Mock Draft: Greatest Show on Turf edition

For those that don’t know, the NFL passing revolution started in 1999 when head coach Dick Vermeil and offensive coordinator and mad scientist Mike Martz installed one of the most ruthless offenses the league had and has ever seen. With their Cinderella story MVP quarterback in Kurt Warner, MVP superstar running back Marshall Faulk, and a duo of Hall of Fame wide receivers Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt. The Rams averaged over 12 wins in a 4 out of 5-year period, where they finished first in total offense 3 straight seasons and a measly second in year 5.

The Rams had 3 straight MVPs, two conference championships, and a Super Bowl title. They likely would have won more trophies in two of those five seasons that were affected by major injuries to the quarterback, but it was nonetheless an incredible run.

As the draft discussions continue to build around the Seahawks needing to find major impact talent, and specifically at the defensive end, it made me wonder…what if the Seahawks went a different route? What if they built their own version of the Greatest Show on Turf?
