Seattle Seahawks March Scouting Report
Here is a quick rundown of where the Seahawks sit with positions heading into the final month before the 2019 Draft. At this point Seattle has the 21st pick in the first round plus a third (84), fourth (124) and fifth (159) round pick. Everyone who pays any attention at all knows that Seattle will try to trade down for extra picks and is not very likely to use their #1 pick at all.
The non-story about QB Russell Wilson going to NY has faded away. Wilson will be in Seattle most likely until he retires. QB Paxton Lynch provides the first solid backup Wilson has ever had in the NFL.
The Offensive Line is overall improved with the addition of OG Mike Iupati and the resigning of OG DJ Fluker despite the departure of OB JR Sweezy. Sweezy is a great guy and can play center as well, but he is off to try to win a ring with Arizona. Iupati and Fluker will add depth filling in behind Sweezy and should do just fine without him. Adding a big guy late in the draft could still be a possibility.
Seattle has lost RB Mike Davis to Chicago, but they are very deep here with RB Chris Carson the likely starter and RB Rashaad Penny still looking to justify being a first round pick last year.
It is not fake news that WR Doug Baldwin is having a bunch of surgeries and no fun in the off season. Given that Seattle typically runs with receivers that get very little credit for their talent, this becomes an area where Seattle might concentrate on in the draft. WR Tyler Lockett is a great speedy guy, but can he stand up as a #1 without Baldwin? I really like WR David Moore, but he waxed and waned his way through last season. I am not that impressed with WR Jaron Brown and WR Amara Darboh may or may not see the field again due to injury. Seattle needs to add bodies here in the draft.
The Seahawks will stand pat at tight end hoping the TE Will Dissly will come back from injury and become everything that they need in this position along with TE Nick Vannett working the blocking roles. And TE Ed Dickson may or may not contribute.
The ‘Hawks called Mulligans and grabbed back PK Jason Myers after not keeping him last year. Combining him with P Michael Dickson provides Seattle with two Pro Bowl guys in these spots.
Seattle may never again look like the team they have been on defense. But keeping DE Frank Clark is a key move, they just need to close the deal. They still need another big guy or two on the line, but the linebackers are solid with the resigning of LB KJ Wright and LB Mychal Kendricks. The secondary is either depleted or ready to provide new stars to the game. Still it is most likely that Seattle will concentrate draft picks on the defensive line and secondary.
