The Seattle Seahawks have been consistently in the NFL offseason news cycle as of late and that isn’t exactly always a good thing. Not all press is good press in this instance. It’s no secret that the relationship between franchise quarterback, Russell Wilson and the current Seahawks brass are not quite on the same page.
Russell Wilson has made it abundantly clear that he is not pleased with who the Seahawks have surrounded him with after a so-so year for the offense. The main concern for Wilson and company is fixing the offensive line woes. Whether the Seahawks address those offensive line needs via free agency or the draft it will be a priority and likely at the top of the list of needs.
Wilson also would like more consistency out of the wide receiver room in 2021. DK Metcalf has emerged as one of the league’s best at the position but on the same token, his counterpart Tyler Lockett is one of the leagues more inconsistent receivers on a week to week basis.
Looking into Seahawks team needs
While the Seahawks have a number of holes to fill this offseason they are still expected to be a contender assuming they keep Russell Wilson around. If the Seahawks indeed can’t solve the in house issues they would receive quite a haul of picks and players for a player the caliber that Wilson is currently at.
The Seahawks currently only have four selections in the 2021 NFL Draft after sending 2021’s first and third round picks to the Jets for Jamal Adam’s. For the sake of this mock let’s assume they stand pat with Russell Wilson and try to right the ship this upcoming free agency and draft.
