The Seattle Seahawks say nice reasons for having their guys in a post-Russell Wilson quarterback room. (And, despite having Drew Lock and Geno Smith battling for the very best spot, they’re always scouring for throwing talent.)
But experts are starting to project that theyll say even nicer things after they land a high spot in the 2023 NFL Draft.
That may not be GM John Schneiders present plan. But, nonetheless, it may be his team’s rebuilding reality.
Luke Easterling at Draft Wire has generated a 2023 NFL mock draft and contains Seattle landing in the No. 3 slot, watching the Houston Texans take Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud first overall and the Seahawks settling directly into land their very own elite QB prospect in Alabamas Bryce Young two spots later.
Its early enough, needless to say, that we are just pretending to learn that the Texans and Seahawks will undoubtedly be this bad in 2022. And we have been only pretending to learn that the elite status of the two prospects will endure aswell.

But we shall say this about Stroud: If hes an improved prospect than Young – who has spent his entire lifetime as a blue-chip guy – he must really be something.
Because Young has already been establishing that, as best he is able to, because the current Crimson Tide quarterback has been among the top prospects in the united kingdom for a long time.
Young was a 5-star recruit appearing out of Mater Del SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL in Santa Ana, California, was the No. 2 player nationally in the class of 2020, and exploded onto the scene as a sophomore in 2021, completing 67 percent of his passes for 4,872 yards, 47 touchdowns, and seven interceptions while adding another three scores as a runner.
Oh, and he won the Heisman Trophy aswell.
Smith and Lock reach have their say now as Seattle QBs.
If the protections are accurate, the Seahawks are simply a year from hiring a rightful heir to Russell Wilson in Seattle.
