Focus for the rest of the Seahawks draft
For the rest of the draft, the best player available philosophy is the right path to long term success, but that doesn't mean there aren't more needs that must be filled. The Seahawks need a wide receiver, at least one linebacker, and a running back.
The Seahawks, in this scenario, could potentially have three selections between picks 70-90. Even if they surprise and don’t trade back, they’re still looking at six more draft selections. There’s plenty of opportunity to find the BPA at running back, linebacker, and running back.
I believe that when the draft ends on Saturday evening, the Seahawks should have every opportunity to solidify their offensive and defensive trenches, the true anchors of championship teams. Depth at the linebacker, running back and wide receiver positions should be filled as well. There will likely still be some holes or concerns with the roster, but the beauty of this draft is that there’s so much depth, no matter the route or vision you take, there’s no reason Seattle shouldn’t get noticeably better.
Before last season, there would be extreme nervousness from the fanbase allowing Schneider or Carroll to make these franchise altering decisions. After last year’s draft however, it’s a completely different feel. The 2022 draft was a historic hit, Geno Smith played like a franchise QB, and now this draft could put Seattle over the top. Here’s to a special weekend and some future Seahawk stars coming to help bring home a 2nd Super Bowl.
