The Seahawks went 12-4 last year and won the NFC West before a loss to the Rams in their NFC Wild Card matchup spelled an early playoff exit. In the 2020 season, Seattle’s offense was dominated by the chemistry between Russell Wilson and receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler LockettThe Seahawks could now benefit from more depth at receiver — but likely not before they take care of a greater need first.  

With three picks in this year’s draft, the Seahawks can only address limited areas of need. One area of focus has been cornerback; late-season starters Ahkello Witherspoon and Tre Flowers are not under contract past the 2021 season. Witherspoon recently signed a one-year contract with Seattle, and Flowers is entering the final year of his four-year deal. The Seahawks also re-signed Damarious Randall, who played safety last year but will move back to cornerback this season. The three will be in contention for the starting roles this year, but the position still contains a gaping hole following the departure of Shaquill Griffin to Jacksonville. 

The Seahawks had a productive offseason, most notably addressing defensive line needs. They acquired defensive end Kerry Hydersigning him to a three-year deal fresh off his strong 2020 season with San FransiscoOn the other side of the ball, Seattle could use one of its three picks to strengthen its offensive line, despite returning four starters and acquiring guard Gabe Jackson.

Last year, Seattle bolstered its defense early in the draft, selecting linebacker Jordyn Brooks in the first round. They also drafted two defensive ends in 2020 — Darrell Taylor and Alton Robinson. Robinson played in 14 games, while Taylor was sidelined by recovery from a leg procedure.

  1. Don’t trade down, period. Pick a player @-56 that you feel can compete to start this season. It doesn’t matter whether it’s CB, WR, IDL or OL. Get the best on your board. Then, go ahead an trade down the other two, if that helps. Plan on inviting & targeting those “undrafted”gems that might have been overlooked in this pandemic draft.

  2. Is it possible that this will be the best undrafted rookie free agent pool in NFL history because of opt-out Covid-19 NCAA football players and a limited season? I think Seattle will do well in rounding up some really good undrafted players since they only have three picks right now…and possibly a few more if they trade down…this situation will help convince a undrafted rookie they have potential to make the 53 man roster….

  3. Based on the Seahawks off-season work, retentions and overall current roster with depth, their getting a special teamer & heir apparent #3 WR @#56 was a very good get. I’m glad they didn’t trade back. Given they turned in their pick with 2 seconds on the clock, they must have been working on trading back. I believe they will do more in rounds 4-7 and end up with 5-6 picks by the end of the draft. Regardless; today’s pick was very good.

  4. Everyone keeps indicating the Seahawks are hurting on the Offensive Line, at CB and WR. They addressed each area in the draft, but also as noted in this report, they already addressed it in Free Agency. The team is solid and ready to get after it. I’m happy with the three picks and look forward to seeing who all gets invited to camp as undrafted free agents.

  5. Excellent move to trade up and get OT Stone Forsythe. He can provide desperately needed depth upon injury to other players, and may have potential to start when either Brown or Shell leave.

    Carroll-Schneider got their priorities straight this draft, and should continue the same practice in the future — draft for need, not for best talent on the board. I couldn’t be happier with added depth at CB, WR, and OT.

    Finally feeling optimistic about 2021 season. Now if only they would replace S&C coach Ivan Lewis…
