6 perfect Day 2 targets for the Seahawks in the 2023 NFL draft

With the Seahawks holding nine draft picks currently, general manager John Schnieder and head coach Pete Carroll’s draft strategy will likely rely on how things shake out in free agency.

6 free agent linebackers who could help fix Seahawks defense

The Seahawks have some solid young pieces on defense but overall in 2022, the defense was not good.

Seahawks lessons: NFL teams need one good backup QB, not 2 that stink

There’s a lot of buzz about the NFL allowing teams to keep a backup QB without them counting against the roster. Maybe teams should just have better QBs. Could this affect the Seahawks?

4 defensive ends Seahawks should chase in free agency

The Seahawks have some good young pieces on defense but some of those are at cornerback and only a couple are at edge rusher.

5 centers the Seattle Seahawks should target in free agency

The Seahawks should be set at offensive tackle for many years to come with Abe Lucas and Charles Cross. One guard spot might be solid too with Damien Lewis. But the other guard spot and center are kind of a mess. Seattle has to get better along the interior of its offensive line.

Seahawks free agent target: Daron Payne could fix the defense
