My Seahawks Wants For This Draft

Please draft the Hulk

Dear Seattle Seahawks,

I am so flipping excited about this draft, I’m a walking talking spaz machine. After 12 years without a top ten draft pick, you are in prime position to select a BAMF player to kick start your rebuild. I haven’t been this giddy with anticipation since I learned that the original leads of Star Wars were coming back for the last trilogy.

I just got one simple ask over the next few days.

Please, don’t get too cute with this draft. Pretty please.

If you are going to trade out of pick 9, please let it be for a stud player you know that you can get a little bit later, and please let that player be either an offensive or defensive lineman. Pretty, pretty please.

I am going to give you a very short list of wants that I have for your team, and I hope that it will serve you as a bit of a guide line for the next 72 hours.

I want you to draft defensive tackle Jordan Davis with your first pick. I know your interior defensive line rotation is probably fairly decent, and you have much bigger needs at offensive tackle, quarterback, corner, and probably linebacker, but I really, REALLY want you to just take Davis. 6-6 340 pounds running a 4.7 forty makes him a Marvel character, and frankly, I want that on this defense. Put him inside, and it will make Darrell Taylor’s job a heck of a lot easier. Please just get this guy. Pretty, pretty please with a cherry on top.

I don’t want you to draft a quarterback. It’s not that I don’t like Matt Corral or Desmond Ridder, it’s that I want these picks going to other premium positions of need. I think it’s a better draft for that, and I want you to just go out and trade for a certain disgruntled young veteran quarterback with a MASSIVE CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER who’s name rhymes with Maker Bayfield. Yeah, please just do that. I think he and Pete would be a good match for each other.

I really want you to draft Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas. I think he’s exactly what you need at right tackle, and he might even have what it takes to shift to a left. He’s long and athletic, moves well, and pass blocks pretty darn good, as he held his own against Jayvon Thibodeaux in the game against Oregon last year. He’s who you need at offensive tackle. If you are going to trade up towards the bottom of round one, have it be for this guy.

I want you to draft a stud linebacker who will attack the line of scrimmage, take on guards, and fly to the ball. This looks like a really good draft to do just that. Please draft the Water Boy.

I want you to find a good center prospect who will develop into a starter. You got Austin Blythe here now. So, I don’t think you need to go early at this position unless there’s a guy there that you think will be a pro bowl player here for years. If that’s the case, then yeah, draft that dude, but either way, find us a center who can be legit.

I really liked what you did last year picking up cornerback Tre Brown in the middle rounds. He looks like a dude who can be a pretty good player in this league. Go get us another one to go along with him. I’m cool with you waiting until the mid rounds again, if you think you can get the dude here.

Please draft Washington State running back (offensive weapon) Max Borghi. I don’t know why I’m gravitating to Cougars so much this year, maybe it’s the way they showed grit through adversity last year, but I’m a big believer in Borghi. I think he’s an underrated runner, and at worst, a really good candidate for the third down back gig here. He’s a local hero, and the fans will love him. Go get this guy.

If you do all these things, this will be a great, grand slam, home run draft. This will be the proper draft to usher in a new era of Seahawks football, and it will bring back that energy that was felt circa 2011-2012 when Bigger, Stronger, Faster was the theme. Jordan Davis literally is that.

So, just go get that, and bring him here, and kick start this thing off right.

Go Hawks!
