Seattle Seahawks Draft Preview; 2016 Schedule Released

With the NFL Draft set to begin on April 28th, let’s take a look at this year’s Seattle Seahawks Draft Preview and schedule.

Seattle Seahawks Draft Preview

Seattle Seahawks Draft PreviewThe Seattle Seahawks need help on both sides of the ball – mostly on both lines. They spent three picks last year on offensive lineman and may look to use some picks here again to bolster that line.

With the #26 pick overall, they also might look to go defense first. There is a tremendous amount of talent on the defensive line in this year’s class, so the Seahawks may very well look to snag a stud with their first selection. The ‘Hawks usually like players with superior athleticism and versatility on defense, and have thus far been relatively successful in acquiring these types of players.

They will look yet again to pluck out the cream of the crop to solidify themselves on both sides of the ball. Pete Carroll desperately wants to get back to elite status and return to the Super Bowl. Without quality QB protectors on offense and QB antagonists on defense, it will be very hard to achieve.

Look for the Seahawks to go big in these spots to help firm things up.

Seahawks’ Top Prospects

OT – Laremy Tunsil (Ole Miss), Ronnie Stanley (Notre Dame), Jack Conklin (Michigan State)
