We are now less than three weeks away from the 2017 NFL Draft. Who the Seattle Seahawks will select is still shrouded in mystery, and the team isn’t giving any indication of who they’ll take.
With all this mystery surrounding the team recently, mainly centered around Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch, why not attempt to predict the unpredictable? Here now is our fourth Seattle Seahawks mock draft!
Before we get started, lets remind everybody of the ground rules:
I am using CBS Sports’ board for prospects, otherwise known as their “Big Board“. The purpose is just to act as a guide for how the industry values certain prospects. No NFL team’s Big Board will exactly match anybody else’s, but it serves a purpose for us.
I will only take into account the moves the Seahawks have actually made thus far in 2017. I, like most, assume they will add another veteran offensive lineman and perhaps a veteran cornerback. However, to simplify our purpose, we are assuming the draft is tomorrow, and the roster right now is essentially what it will be in April.
I am also using Matt Miller’s (Bleacher Report) latest Mock Draft to help establish a baseline for how far a prospect could “fall”. This is to ensure that I do not find a way for the Seahawks to get a Top-10 player at pick 26.
Why Miller? Simply put, he is good at his job and I have a ton of respect for him.
In mock version 4.0, we will feature several trades throughout. I am using the standard NFL draft pick value chart (click here), and I cannot exceed a +/- of 20 points on any draft pick trade. The total value will be posted by the traded picks.
Now that we are all clear on the ground rules, we can get started. Remember, the Seahawks currently hold pick numbers: 26, 58, 90, 102, 106, 210 and 226.
