11. Seattle Seahawks
At the moment, the Seattle Seahawks seem like the early favorites to win the NFC West after taking home the title last year, but hopefully this time around there will be a much healthier Russell Wilson at quarterback. Offensive line was a major need for the Seahawks entering the draft, and after using their first pick on addressing the defense with Malik McDowell, the team is excited to see what kind of production Ethan Pocic can make as a rookie.
The fact that Pocic was able to play multiple positions during his time at LSU was one of many reasons why he was such an attractive option for Seattle in the third round, and hopefully the results will turn out much better than in previous drafts. Last year was the perfect example of how much the Seahawks truly struggled with the offensive line, and hopefully the presence of Pocic provides better protection for Wilson along with improving the ground game.
Seattle may have won the division title in 2016, but it was clear they are far from the dominant team from year’s past. Even if that was the case, the Seahawks still have the talent on both sides of the football to compete for being one of the top teams in the NFC once again.
