The Seattle Seahawks still had an outside shot at the playoffs in Week 18, and even grabbed a 21-20 win over the Cardinals. However, the Seahawks needed a few more pieces to fall into place to knock other NFC teams out of Wild Card contention, but those games did not play out in Seattle’s favor.
Seahawks draft order: 16th pick

Seahawks mock draft: Potential first-round pick
The Seahawks could go in a few different directions with their first-round pick. Seattle might prioritize their defensive line with an edge rusher like Florida State’s Jared Verse or Oregon State’s Taliese Fuaga. They could also beef up the interior with Jer’Zhan Newton.
Seattle might also opt for an offensive lineman, or follow up last year’s successful Devon Witherspoon pick by strengthening their secondary with a safety like Miami’s Kamren Kinchens.
