SEATTLE SEAHAWKS. C. . .

Team needs

Blocking, and lots of it. Quarterback Russell Wilson drags the team out of holes so often, but he needs proper blocking at some point. The Seahawks could also stand to upgrade their defense.

2020 NFL Draft needs

  • No. 27: Jordyn Brooks, Linebacker, Texas Tech
  • No. 48: Darrell Taylor, EDGE, Tennessee
  • No. 69: Damien Lewis, Guard, LSU
  • No. 133: Colby Parkinson, Tight End, Stanford
  • No. 144: DeeJay Dallas, Running Back, Miami
  • No. 148: Alton Robinson, EDGE, Syracuse
  • No. 214: Freddie Swain, Wide Receiver, Florida
  • No. 251: Stephen Sullivan, Tight End, LSU

Draft review

I think both Jordyn Brooks and Darrell Taylor are minor reaches, but both should perform well as pros. The team did well to provide the offense with some more weapons.

So why a C-grade?

Because, with the exception of the third round, the Seahawks did not look at the offensive line at all. Wilson will once again be running for his life.
