The Seahawks have not had a history of taking quarterbacks early in the draft during the John Schneider era. Could that change in 2024? For Seattle, the decision to take a quarterback in this year's draft is a tough one. They already have a good quarterback in Geno Smith who has been their man the past two seasons. The Seahawks also have other priorities that need to be addressed this off-season and do not have a second-round pick in this year's draft.

In total, the Seahawks have seven picks in the 2024 draft, including two third-round picks. If the Seahawks use their 16th overall pick on a QB, they might have to wait 61 selections before making their next selection at pick 78 on day two. By then, most of the potentially excellent quarterbacks would be gone.

The first round of this year's draft is stacked with talented defensive linemen including Byron Murphy II, Laiatu Latu, Jer'Zhan Newton, and Jared Verse. With a new defensive-minded head coach, the Seahawks are going to have a tough time passing up on any of those defensive players.

Should the Seahawks decide to take a quarterback early in this year's draft, GM John Schneider and his scouts would have to be blown away by a QB prospect. The dilemma for the Seahawks is there are both good QB prospects and talented defensive linemen who will come off the board early in this draft. The Seahawks also must navigate not having a second-round selection, which they could mitigate by trading up or trading back.

Whether the Seahawks decide to take a QB early in this year's draft either on day one or day two, they are going to need to weigh their options and find the best QB for them. Here are three QB prospects the Seahawks should consider in this year's draft:
