We’ve spent a lot of time projecting the Seahawks picks on day one of the NFL draft. We’ll do much more, that’s for sure. But for now, let’s look at the first pick on day two, where Seattle has a great chance to build a championship team with the 37th pick overall.
So far, the Seahawks have made some great decisions this offseason. I mean, a lot. None is bigger than keeping Geno Smith in town on a very team-friendly contract. Once the Hawks completed that deal, they really got to work in free agency, as you can see here. Seattle addressed needs on the defensive line, linebacker, and defensive backfield. Think they want to improve the defense much?
We 12s can only hope that the Hawks aren’t finished with their shopping in the free agent market. After all, there is one particular name that would be a perfect addition to the haul John and Pete have brought in. BWagz, we know you’re listening to your brothers Quandre Diggs, Jarran Reed, and especially K.J. Wright. Bobby Wagner, please come home.
Seahawks will find great talent on day two
Other than locking in their quarterbacks – yes, we see you, Drew Lock – the Hawks still have a lot of work to do. Yes, I know they could still go after a QB in the draft, but it isn’t exactly as dire a need as it was two weeks ago. Despite signing Devon Bush and Evan Brown, no one sees them as the definitive answers at linebacker and center. You can be sure the Seahawks haven’t taken any players at those spots off their draft board. But there’s every chance they’ll shift those positions to day two.
Now, odds are they weren’t exactly going to look at a center on day one anyway. Hmmm – let me clarify that. There is no way in the name of Kevin Mawae the Hawks were taking a center in the first round this year. There are some good players available, yes, and we’ll get to them. But not today. For now, let’s just focus on the Hawks first pick on day two.
