Many mocks have Seattle addressing one glaring need.

The 2024 NFL draft runs from April 25 through 27. That means Seattle Seahawks fans are just a little over a month until 12s find out who will be the newest members of the team. Seattle currently holds the number 16 pick in the draft and then does not choose again until pick 81 of the third round. Of course, general manager John Schneider could always work some trade magic and add a second-round pick back by potentially moving back in the first round.

Seattle definitely has some problems that need immediate fixing, though. While the team signed linebackers and safeties in free agency, the team still must fix its issue along the interior of the offensive line. Some national pundits are predicting Seattle will have the worst offensive line in the league in 2024 unless there are some monumental changes.

Seattle does not seem to need a quarterback in April's draft, at least. After trading for Sam Howell recently, the Seahawks have two veteran quarterbacks on the roster and both are under contract for two more seasons. Schneider choosing a quarterback early would be a surprise.

Seattle Seahawks mock draft tracker implies Seattle will address one area of concern

Jackson Powers-Johnson, Offensive lineman, Oregon

The 6'3" and 328-pound Powers-Johnson is the start of a theme here. He is a versatile offensive lineman who many think has elite upside as a guard in the NFL. He can play center as well, but Seattle taking a player thinking they are a center in the first round seems not smart. During Senior Bowl practices, Powers-Johnson was overpowering.

Troy Fautanu, Offensive lineman, Washington

Fautanu might still be the favorite among most mock drafters because, like Powers-Johnson, he is versatile and likely will be a Week 1 starter at guard. But Fautanu also played at Washington under Seattle's new offensive coordinator, Ryan Grubb. Grubb wanting Fautanu just makes a lot of sense.

JC Latham, Offensive lineman, Alabama

Latham fills the same role as Powers-Johnson and Fautanu. The difference is Latham is a huge person. He is 6'6" and 360 pounds which is a fantastic size for a guard.

Amarius Mims, offensive tackle, Georgia

Mims has not shown up on a lot of mock drafts. Of course, that probably only means he will be the Seahawks' first-round pick. Mims, though, is more of a pure tackle and after Seattle signed George Fant in free agency, there probably is not a reason for the Seahawks to take Mims.

Byron Murphy II, defensive tackle, Texas

The Seahawks do have some talent along the interior defensive line with Jarran Reed and Leonard Williams, but adding youth would be a plus. Murphy is not tall but he is super strong. He could be the closest thing to Aaron Donald in this draft.
