With the twenty-ninth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select…
29. Seattle Seahawks: Johnathan Abram S | Mississippi State
Defensive end Frank Clark has been traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Kansas City Chiefs for KC’s first-round pick this year, a second-round pick next year and the two teams will also swap third-round picks this year. Literally two days before the draft people! Now you know why I wait so long to do this damn mock draft. Lucky for me, the trade happened between two teams with late first round picks, so this shouldn’t affect much. If anything I might flip Seattle’s earlier selection with the 21st pick with this pick here at #29. With Clark now officially gone, Seattle needs to address their pass rush even more, so it’s a good thing we scooped up Louisiana Tech’s Jaylon Ferguson before. The problem is the holes don’t stop there, even with another first round pick in the cards.
Offensively the Seahawks need weapons for Russell Wilson, whether that be at tight end or receiver. Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell is a really intriguing option here but this defense really just shit the bed now this offseason. Defensively you could justifiably take another defensive lineman since you legit have nothing now outside Jarran Reed. Cornerback could be upgraded with Deandre Baker, Rock Ya-Sin and Lonnie Johnson all still on the board. However, I look at the next biggest departure this offseason being in the secondary where Earl Thomas is no longer holding down the fort at safety. Let’s fix that by giving the Seahawks Johnathan Abram out of Mississippi State. Abram is arguably the best safety prospect in this years draft class but not by much. Safeties should start to come off the board late in the first round and there are a bunch of names to keep an eye out for including Florida’s Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Washington’s Taylor Rapp, Maryland’s Darnell Savage, Virginia’s Juan Thornhill, Alabama’s Deionte Thompson and Delaware’s Nasir Adderley. The Seahawks got to have their eyes on at least one of these guys at pick #21 or #29.
