After going 7-10 in the NFL draft last season, the Seattle Seahawks will need to be smart to help this team get back on their feet.
The 2021 campaign was an absolute nightmare for them Seattle Seahawks, there’s no denying that. Now general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll have completely flushed that and are focused on 2022.
With the NFL Draft approaching in late April, this is a golden opportunity for the Seahawks to bring in some key elements. Though Seattle doesn’t have a first-round pick, that doesn’t mean Schneider hasn’t been working overtime evaluating talent. Which players could make their way to Lumen Field? We take a look inside this mock draft.
Seattle Seahawks Mock Draft – Second Round
Seattle will start Day 2 with No. 41 overall on the clock for the first time. Should the Seahawks end up re-signing DJ Reed, the focus of this pick will not be on the cornerback, but rather on improving the offensive line. So how about an in-stater in Abraham Lucas?
Seahawks fans are fairly familiar with Washington State’s offensive tackle, having grown up in the area and playing high school ball with Archbishop Murphy in Everett. Lucas eventually had an incredible career with the Cougars, earning All-American honors last fall.
Lucas is a predicted third-round pick, but his time at Pullman has really seen him blast draft boards. At 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds, he also has the ideal frame for an offensive tackle. Lucas could step in and make an immediate impact for the line.
It’s no secret that Seattle has struggled with protection Russell Wilson over the years. That’s the overall offensive line, with fans tired of watching Wilson run for his life. Lucas at No. 41 could make a lot of sense for Schneider.
