The Seattle Seahawks should be keeping a close eye on these three quarterbacks eligible for the 2023 NFL Draft.
Seattle will likely be looking for a new signal caller in the 2023 NFL Draft after trading franchise quarterback Russell Wilson in a massive deal with the Denver Broncos.
The Seahawks have Drew Lock, Jacob Eason and Geno Smith in their roster. Lock came to Seattle in the Wilson trade and has started 21 games since his call-up in 2019. It makes sense why Seattle will try to draft someone else.
He has some experience and fits in well with how the Seahawks are trying to lead their offense. Lock is a playmaker and showed that in college in Missouri, but it didn’t sit well in Denver. However, with the way Seattle plans to run its offense, Lock will likely be the guy in 2022.
The other two quarterbacks have seen their fair share of struggles. Eason hasn’t done much in the league since being drafted by Indianapolis, and Smith has thrown a few around as well. It seems the Seahawks won’t go after other free-agent quarterbacks like Baker Mayfield because he doesn’t fit into their system.
While he was a proven winner in Cleveland, something isn’t right about Mayfield in Seattle.
The upcoming season will be a rebuild for the Seahawks, especially given this quarterback situation, so Lock might be the guy for now, but the coaches and front office will be watching college football closely to see who they can draft in 2023.
Unless the Seahawks choke hard enough to end up with a top-five pick, they might not get one like Bryce Young or CJ Stroud — if those two even declare themselves for the draft.
Who would be the next quarterback to snap after them? Right now, mock drafts suggest Seattle will have a top 10 pick, specifically No. 9 overall, but by then those two guys will likely be off the board.
Honorable mentions include West Virginia’s JT Daniels, Washington States’ Cam Ward, Boston College’s Phil Jurkovec and Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke. CBS Sports predicts Van Dyke would be who the Seahawks would take at number 9, but there are better quarterbacks out there than him.
Here are three quarterbacks who would improve the offense of the Seahawks, who are likely to be drafted in the 2023 NFL Draft, and why they would be great fits in Seattle.
