No. 3 - Bo Nix

There isn't a general consensus as to where the potential Heisman Trophy winner, Bo Nix, will land in the upcoming NFL Draft. Wherever he does end up going, that team will be getting a day-1 starter. Nix is the most experienced college quarterback of all time. A former 5-star recruit who spent his first three seasons at Auburn, Nix showed glimpses of talent but truly came to life after transferring to Oregon.

He's thrown only 9 total interceptions in his 2-year Oregon span while contributing 66 passing touchdowns and 20 more on the ground. He ended the 2023 regular season as the nation's leader in passing yards while completing nearly 79 percent of his passes.

He can use his legs, he makes crucial checks before the play, and he is a leader. Seattle currently doesn't have a 2nd round pick, so trading for or using its 1st would have to be the option to keep Bo in the Pacific Northwest.

That said, quarterbacks have a way of not going where you think they will during the draft. In 2022, only one quarterback was chosen before the third round and that was Kenny Pickett at number 20. Maybe Nix falls pretty far, but I highly doubt it.
