Seattle Seahawks February Scouting Report
Every offseason someone has to come up with a story. You won’t remember the QB Russell Wilson to NYG story next year at this time. It just will not happen and is something to talk about.
Free agency and the draft are the only real news here. Seattle will not stick to only four draft picks. They will trade down out of round one and probably not even for a second rounder. They will find their depth in rounds three through five. So don’t fret about having just a first, third, fourth and fifth round pick. And don’t expect to hear them call anyone on the first day. Still Seattle should end up with 6-7 picks before they are done.
Free agency is the most difficult topic. People freaked about the loss of household names from last year’s defense. Imagine if they let SS Kam Chancellor, FS Earl Thomas and LB KJ Wright out of the fold. That is a real possibility. Especially if that is the best way to keep DE Frank Clark who is far more valuable than any of them. Is LB Barkevious Mingo gone yet? I don’t see a way he is still on the roster when camp starts. TE Ed Dickson is likely gone too unless TE Will Dissly is way behind in his recovery.
So if they keep Clark and lose the others what does the team look like? First, look for Wilson and LB Bobby Wagner to get early deals before Camp. They are bedrock for this team. The Offensive Line did better than expected last season and they are all cheap to keep, so there should not be much of a change there. The Defensive Line is a different story. They have been a weakness and could see a new face or even two. If Wright leaves, then there could be a new linebacker of note. The best news may be that there will definitely be a new kicker!
