In this mock draft, Seattle focused heavily on its defensive backfield. They were also ultra aggressive in their trades.
This mock was created to demonstrate how the Seattle Seahawks could manipulate the board if they forgo volume, instead focusing on selecting their guys. They began the draft with seven picks and ended the day with just six.

However, these players fit the mold of what it means to be a Seattle Seahawk. Is it likely? No. Seattle will likely be in the business of adding picks to try and take advantage of the depth of this draft class.
Although, this mock draft gives the Seahawks a starting right tackle and cornerback. A freaky athletic strong safety who could transition to corner, and a freaky athletic corner who could move to free safety.
In addition, they snag a potential tight end of the future and a high upside outside wide receiver. If the Seahawks actions are any indication, this team is looking to get back to its roots.
A power run game, a suffocating secondary, a deep defensive line, and a vertical passing game built off play action. Simply put, this mock draft would check off almost everything on the list.
