The Seattle Seahawks are facing one of their biggest offseasons to date. After some on-air comments about the organization, quarterback Russell Wilson made it clear that he was frustrated with the team’s lack of efforts to protect him. Without a first-round pick, can the Seahawks do enough in the draft to keep their franchise quarterback happy?
When making an appearance on national radio, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson sent the fanbase into a full-fledged panic. The veteran quarterback expressed his displeasure in the number of sacks he has taken and put the hones on the organization to do more. Wilson even expressed interest in having a say in personnel decisions, as some veteran signal-callers have had in the past. With a small number of picks available as of right now, Seattle may have a tough time improving key areas of need in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Looking at Seahawks team needs heading into offseason
Simply put, the Seahawks NEED to address the offensive line. In Wilson’s nine seasons in the NFL, he has never been sacked less than 30 times in a season and has not seen under 40 sacks since his rookie season.
Along with the offensive line, Seattle still has other areas of need to be addressed. Edge rusher will likely be a target for them, along with adding more depth pieces for the offense. Even though they don’t currently own a first-round pick, the Seahawks will look to build as much as possible in this Seahawks 7-round mock draft.
