Seattle Reign – Seattle Seahawks 2023 Draft Profile

The Seattle Seahawks were a healthy surprise in 2022. They made the playoffs after losing their franchise quarterback Russell Wilson and the leader of their defense in Bobby Wagner via trades. Seattle had a good year under the leadership of Geno Smith and now have Bobby Wagner back in the fold. Now they can start to build on a reinforced foundation to get back to the mountain top.

Nolan Smith, Edge, Georgia

Andrew Vorhees, Guard, USC

Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

The Seahawks don’t have many glaring holes on their roster and that puts them in a good spot with two picks in the first round. 

Edge rusher should be one of those picks and Georgia standout Nolan Smith would fit perfectly with that Seattle front. His speed, strength, and versatility will make him a nightmare against the run and in pursuing the QB. He will also have Bobby Wagner to help ingratiate him into the pro game and shape him into a leader. 

On the offensive side of the ball the Seahawks have needs at interior offensive line and receiver. They can afford to take a risk here and Andrew Vorhees is just that. He tore his ACL at the combine but still repped out 38 on the bench press. Once he recovers from his injury, he has the ability to be one of the best interior linemen in the game.

What helps with not having Vorhees for at least a season is having a deep threat to keep the opposing defense honest. The ‘Hawks could add Cedric Tillman to do just that. His 6’3” frame and deep speed is a perfect compliment to incumbents DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Tillman could also help open up running lanes for Kenneth Walker III, making the Seahawks a more complete offensive team.

The Seahawks can definitely bolster their roster enough to attempt to overtake their division rival San Francisco 49ers.
