Seattle Seahawks 2009 NFL Draft Needs

Seattle Seahawks Draft needs for the 2009 draft…

Jan 19 2009

Picks by Round: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, plus any compensatory picks that may be awarded.


Urgent: A franchise wide receiver to give any quarterback a chance is desperately needed. A franchise cornerback is needed as even Marcus Trufant did not have the best year and the other corners don’t inspire much confidence. The organization desperately misses Steve Hutchinson and desperately needs a quality offensive guard to reinvigorate the running attack.

A starting tackle or two are needed depending on whether or not the organization feels Kyle Williams is the long term answer at either tackle.

Strong: Two new starting safeties are strongly needed as Deon Grant, Brian Russell, Jordan Babineaux, and C.J. Wallace were disappointing. A dominating center would be a great help to the running game and the offense in general. A young franchise back is needed as Sammy Morris, Julius Jones, and T.J. Duckett have not lived up to expectations.

Moderate: A defensive end who can rush the passer and stuff the run, a quick interior tackle who can rush the passer and stuff the run, and a second wide receiver are also needed.

Nice to Have: A project quarterback from a small school to groom for a few years.

Wild Card: Have the Seahawks found their new starting left offensive tackle of the future in Kyle A. Williams? Will Seneca Wallace play more quarterback or wide receiver in 2009?
