If the Seahawks are looking to make significant upgrades at the 2021 NFL Draft, they will need to be very efficient with their picks.
You can’t rule out Seattle general manager John Schneider attempting to acquire more picks, but for now, the front office only possess three total selections. It’s been a turbulent offseason for the Seahawks with Russell Wilson trade rumors flying around, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see them add some offensive talent in an effort to appease the disgruntled quarerback.
Here’s a look at the Seahawks’ picks in the 2021 NFL Draft:

Seahawks NFL Draft needs
- Offensive line: Wilson has made it clear that he would like to play behind an improved offensive line. The seven-time Pro Bowler may hold onto the ball too long at times, but he is often scrambling because a comfortable pocket doesn’t exist.
- Wide receiver: The Seahawks have a great duo in Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, but adding a strong No. 3 to the equation could be a smart move. Lockett is capable of playing both outside and in the slot, so that gives Seattle flexibility when examining this year’s wide receiver group.
- Defensive back: This is an obvious need after the Seahawks lost Week 1 starters Shaquill Griffin and Quinton Dunbar in free agency.
