Seahawks NFL mock draft 2025: Never too early to address 2024 draft whiffs

Never too early to look ahead.

Celebrate, 12s! The 2024 NFL draft is over and the Seattle Seahawks have added eight new players to the team. Many of these may or may not make the team and most of them are likely not going to be early starters in their careers. That does not mean they won't help the team, though.

But some parts of the organization are already looking ahead to next offseason. This includes the scouting department, and probably, general manager John Schneider. Drafts are built for the future and not only one-season success. There will be players in 2025 that will help the Seahawks be good, too, of course.

The players below are somewhat based on current needs, but also future contracts. I do not have a quarterback being taken by Seattle as they still could be set in 2025 and quarterbacks have such a fluid potential. These players would help new head coach Mike Macdonald and general manager John Schneider be successful for several seasons.

Way-too-early 2025 Seattle Seahawks mock draft

534. Javontez Spraggins. . . . 1. . 2025 round one. . Interior offensive lineman

Seattle did address their interior offensive line this offseason, though it took them some time to do so. Christian Haynes should be a good player and likely a Week 1 starter in 2024. He will probably play right guard while Laken Tomlinson plays left guard. But the Seahawks may need to find Tomlinson's replacement for 2025 and Spraggins should be an upgrade over a younger Tomlinson.

But he would not need to be. Haynes can flip to the left side while Spraggins, more of a true right guard and with more experience at the position in college, would take Haynes' 2024 spot. The 6'3" and 325-pound player is already strong enough to play in the NFL, but with another year of high-level college football, Spraggins is going to be much more prepared to make an immediate impact.

Jack Sawyer. Edge rusher. 2. . 2024 round two. 490. . . .

Sawyer was right to stay at Ohio State. His issues - the few he has - are mostly technique. He is not an elite-level athlete, but he overcomes that with an extremely high motor. He also has good size at 6'4" and 265 pounds. He also stays extremely active and had 10 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks in 2023. What he doesn't have in high-end speed, he can overcome with a high football IQ.

Evan Stewart. 2025 round three. . Wide receiver. . 515. 3. . .

Stewart digressed in his sophomore season in terms of production at Texas A&M and he decided to transfer to Oregon before next season where his skill set - he is fast and 6 feet and a slight 175 pounds - should be a perfect fit in the Ducks' system. He will definitely see more catches and have more yards, which is especially true as he likely will get better coaching about where to place his hands for catching passes.

He needs to add some weight or he will get clobbered in the NFL, but he should be able to do so and not lose any quickness. He would be a perfect slot receiver for the Seahawks if the team moves Jaxon Smith-Njigba more to the outside.

. 532. . 4. 2025 round four. Walter Nolen. Interior defensive lineman. . .

Nolen has an interesting history. He was the highest-rated player coming out of high school in 2022 and has not developed into the kind of player Texas A&M might have hoped. But Nolen left the Aggies like a lot of other players after the 2023 season so Ole Miss might be a better fit for Nolen. The 6'4" and nearly 300-pound player has good athleticism for his size but he, like Stewart, clearly did not get good coaching at Texas A&M.

That means taking Nolen in round four is likely not going to be a possibility in 2025. He probably will have a great 2024 and shoot-up draft charts. He needs another season to be draft available, but he should get that this coming season so Seattle might need to choose him in round one or two.

535. . . 6. . . Bryce Anderson. Safety. . 2025 round six

Hello, Aggies fans! You actually had a player return to you! Great! And Anderson is not a bad player, either. He is not a ball-hawk but he is good against the run. Does the 6-foot and 195-pound safety have issues he needs to work on? Of course. For one, he needs to add muscle mass and cannot play in the NFL at 195 pounds. But he also probably won't be a sixth-round choice. If Seattle still needs a safety in next year's draft and likes Anderson, Seattle might need to take him in the third round. His experience against SEC receivers is going to help his draft status.

. . Omarion Hampton. . 441. 2025 round seven. Running back. . . 7

Hampton is a masher at 6-foot and 220 pounds and has excellent strength. He is more Chris Carson than Kenneth Walker II, though. He can catch decently enough and is capable of grinding out yards, but he isn't overly explosive. Seattle should have Walker, Zach Charbonnet, and Kenny McIntosh under contract through 2025 but Hampton should add long-term depth.
