The Seattle Seahawks finished 7-10 this season in a year the 12 will likely want to forget. Now the question hanging over the team is whether franchise quarterback Russell Wilson will be moved in the offseason.
The Seahawks currently only have six draft picks. They don’t have the 10th overall pick thanks to an ill-fated trade with the Jets when they acquired safety Jamal Adams.
I used the Mock Draft simulator from NFL Mock Draft Database. For this simulation, I used the consensus big board accumulated by NFL MDD, with the realistic draft mode setting.
Let’s see how it plays out.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS: 7-ROUND MOCK DRAFT
2-41: Phidarian Mathis, DL, Alabama
The Seahawks are in desperate need of interior pass rush help. Mathis can provide just that. The big man from Bama had nine sacks this year for the Tide. Seattle has to make the most of every pick they have.
3-72: Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State
Walker came into the 2021 season with first-round buzz. Unfortunately, his play didn’t match up to that. He still has the size and raw traits you want. Walker should also test well. However, he should probably keep these extracurricular activities away from his next stop.

4-107: Zyon McCollum, CB, Sam Houston State
The Seattle Seahawks are known for wanting their corners to have length. McCollum has that in spades and he can cover too. The FCS product has a chance to develop into a long-term starter on the outside.
4-114: Kaleb Eleby, QB, Western Michigan
Kaleb Eleby has starter potential down the road. He just needs to develop it. If Russell Wilson does leave, Eleby can be groomed down the road.
THE REST OF THE DRAFT
5-152: JT Woods, DB, Baylor
7-226: Christopher Allen, EDGE, Alabama
