2019 NFL Draft Talk

Recommended Posts

The Seattle Seahawks cap off a very promising season with a postseason appearance and now it's time for draft talk.  The Seahawks hold the 21st overall pick.  Who are you all hoping the team takes a look at?  What positions are you hoping to sure up?

For me, I wouldn't mind looking at a corner.  I'm not sure Shaq Griffin is a #1 CB in this league.  He's good, but maybe he's better served as a #2.

Trade down like usual. Hoping for the best Guard or pass rusher available at the beginning of the 2nd round.

Any particular prospects you're looking at in the draft?

Just my two cents...

1. Defensive line depth // playmakers

All depends on the Clark situation. The Staff seems pretty confident in being able to resign him. Even if they do, the unit as a whole needs some more talent.

Stephens is a UFA and is just ok.

Poona Ford played well, but seems like more of a solid role player.

Naz Jones was a ghost this year so who knows.

Rasheem Green was also a ghost so you obviously cant expect much moving forward.

Dion Jordan is made of glass.

Jarren Reed is  a UFA after 2020. Something to keep tabs on.

Jefferson was ok but Seattle could and should upgrade here.

Jacob Martin was a nice find in 6th round, and seems to be a solid pass rushing specialist

 

Honestly, the major drawback of this team was they couldn't replace Michael Bennett. Teams were able to attack the edges. Missing on McDowell really set things back.

 

2. Wide Receiver

The team only really goes 3 deep. Jarron Brown was used like TE-Flex. David Moore flashed a lot, but it would be nice to add another playmaker here to ensure the unit maintains high productivity. There was a noticeable drop in play if Doug wasn't on the field. More talent here please.

 

3. Guard

Sweezy and Fluker are both UFA. Now, Simmons definitely showed enough to warrant a serious look here longterm. But he will be coming off an injury. I think Seattle can and should resign Fluker. Sweezy did a yeomans effort this year, but Seattle can upgrade at that position. 

 

4. Slot Corner

Justin Coleman is a UFA and I cant see Seattle spending $$$ on bringing him back. He will command a sizable contract on the open market. That being said, Akeem King really stepped up big here, and offers an interesting skill set [matched up on TEs]. But Seattle always takes a flier on athletes in the secondary.

How do you guys feel about Rashan Gary?  Coming into the season, Gary was viewed by some to be a top 5 pick.  He has been nicked up and some have questioned his motor/work ethic.  I've been seeing some mocks dropping him all the way down to the bottom of the first round.
