Seattle Seahawks 2024 Mock Draft: NFL Combine edition

Despite a new head coach in place for the first time in 14 years, I expect the Seattle Seahawks to address this draft with the same intentions as those of years past.

Round 4, Seahawks Pick 119 - OT Sataoa Laumea, Utah

Sataoa Laumea played the majority of his 4-year college career as a tackle. But, might be better at guard in the NFL and that is exactly why the Seahawks select him in the 4th round. At 6-foot-4-inches, 319 pounds, Laumea has great hands and athleticism. He can be used as a puller in gap schemes but also has displayed on tape his ability to drive defenders backward. I don't know if he would be a day 1 starter, but I can see him eventually playing his way into the starting guard position.

Round 5, Pick 151 - TE Erick All, Iowa

It will be interesting to see how the Seahawks address free agency with both Noah Fant and Colby Parkinson set to hit the market. The usage of tight ends was important to Shane Waldron and I'd imagine, they will be with Ryan Grubb. Despite having an ACL tear, it's worth taking a flyer on Erick All. The attribute that will jump off tape is his physicality. He likes to put his hands on defenders but also has the ability to make plays in the open field with his ability after the catch.

Round 6, Pick 194 - LB Maema Njongmeta, Wisconsin

Similar to the TE position, Seattle will have to make decisions surrounding Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks at the linebacker position. Selecting Maema Njongmeta in the 6th round could serve as an insurance premium for Brooks, given his injury history (if he were re-signed). But, do not be mistaken, Njongmeta will not want to be on the bench for long. He has the ability to play in coverage which will be important for Macdonald's scheme. But, most importantly, and what jumps off tape, is his controlled violence.

Round 7, Pick 233 - WR Anthony Gould, Oregon

Despite being a 7th-round selection, Anthony Gould could make an immediate impact on this Seahawks team. With his blazing speed, he can make a difference as a special teams returner. Although he is certainly undersized at 5-foot-8-inches tall, he does have the ability to run the route tree. Will primarily be effective in screens and other quick passes that get him in space. But, I could see him having the ability that Seattle thought Dee Eskridge would possess when selecting him.
