Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog checks in to talk about a draft strategy for Seattle heading into this year's NFL Combine. Where do they need to improve and what position groups should they target to improve where it could count most in 2022? It turns out that the area where the Seahawks need to improve most (on the offensive and defensive line) are particular strengths for this year's draft class. While there may not be the obvious top talent, there are some significant areas to add depth.
Finding an interior pass rusher could prove difficult where the Seahawks sit in the second round, but there are options on the edge and Rob lists several players to watch over the weekend along with the drills that Pete Carroll and John Schneider have paid attention to historically. If Seattle were to pass on improving either line with their first pick, where are some other areas they could go and see immediate upgrades? Could an early pick supplant a long-time starter for Seattle? One thing is for sure, Pete Carroll and Clint Hurtt have talked about being aggressive and that most likely leads to searching for improvements on defense in the draft.
