The Seattle Seahawks won their first Super Bowl last year thanks in large part to a roster that was loaded with depth at nearly every position. But with contract extensions for Michael Bennett and Earl Thomas, and upcoming extensions for Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson, the Seahawks’ depth has taken a hit this offseason.
Seattle will have to replace key pieces such as Golden Tate and Breno Giacomini on offense, and Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, Clinton McDonald, Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond on defense. The Seahawks have some options already on the roster to potentially step into bigger roles, but more depth is needed across the roster.
However, the Seahawks only have six draft picks to work with entering the draft after dealing away picks in trades for Percy Harvin and Terrelle Pryor. Seattle has never made fewer than nine picks in the draft under head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider. The team covets draft picks and will likely try to trade down to pick up extra selections at some point over the three days of the draft.
