Seahawks choose Luke Lachey
- Tight end from Iowa
- Round 4
Iowa certainly has a knack for using its tight ends and developing them. Some of the more recent Hawkeye alums include George Kittle, T.J. Hockenson, and the Seahawks' Noah Fant. Lachey seems to be able to catch and run, like all the previous guys mentioned, and should be among the top tight ends taken in the 2024 NFL draft. Seattle might even need to take him in round 4 if they really want him.
Seattle takes Roger Rosengarten
- Offensive tackle from Washington
- Round 6
I am not really sure why Pro Football Network has Rosengarten hanging around in the sixth round, but he was so why would I not take him? Plus, if I am taking Penix, Jr., then why would I not also get Penix's excellent right tackle at Washinton, too? Rosengarten is a fantastic pass blocker and has the size at 6'5" and 305 pounds to develop into a good run blocker too. Plus, he only needs to be added for depth now as Abe Lucas is holding down the right tackle spot in Seattle currently.
Seattle Seahawks choose Treshaun Ward
- Running back from Kansas State
- Round 6
Ward isn't big back at just 5'10" and 195 pounds, but he is explosive. Currently, Seattle has a bit bigger backs and could use Ward in passing situations. Not that he can't take the ball from the quarterback and be good because he can - he averaged 6.5 yards a carry between 2021 and 2022. But Seattle could use a change of pace back after Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet and Ward would be a good fit for that reason.
