2. The Seahawks trade up and draft the ancient Garrett Bolles
Garrett Bolles, the offensive tackle out of Utah, is 24 years old and will be 25 by the start of the season. That’s old for rookies coming out of the NFL Draft. He took a very unorthodox path to the draft and only played one year of FBS before declaring. If the Seahawks aren’t bothered by Bolles’ age and simply want to get someone who can maybe throw a damn block once in a while on their line, they could do the unexpected and flip their first (or second if they trade down) and one of their three third round picks to the New York Giants for their 23rd pick if Bolles is still available.
3. Ryan Ramczyk falls to the Seahawks at pick 26
Shocking, I know, but it has at least a tiny chance of happening. It’s believed that the Denver Broncos will take Ramczyk in the NFL Draft, or several other teams who could use offensive line help at the tackle position.
But hear me out. Forrest Lamp goes to the Ravens at 16, leaving Ramczyk, Cam Robinson, and Bolles as the best available offensive linemen available. The Broncos, with their 20th pick, pull a wildcard and choose Ross instead of Ramczyk. The Giants are dead-set in acquiring the 24-year-old junior Bolles and choose him at 23, and the Houston Texans bow to the pressure from their fans to draft Deshaun Watson instead of Ramczyk. John Schneider and Pete Carroll can’t pass up the unexpected opportunity and nab him. Unlikely, but possible.
