What is this teams biggest need in the 2013 draft?

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! RATING: PG-13
  • I use to think WR but i like Rice and Tate now. in week 1-6 they were frustrating to watch them drop everything.

    personally for me its a toss up between Right Tackle and Defensive Tackle, (those inside runs have been killing us)

  • Starting to feel like it's a pocket collapsing DT.

  • DT still.. need a guy that can come in on passing downs and collapse that pocket it would immediately make our edge rushers more effective.

  • Defensive line and WR depth for me.

    And then some OL improvement, specifically Guard and maybe RT.

  • DT for sure! I'd take another TE or WR if there was no available DT at our drafting position.

    Forgot RG. We definitely need a long term RG. McQuistan is solid, but more often than not, he's not that good.... lol

  • RG and RT?

    Not even in the top five needs for me.

    Three-tech DT, wide receiver, WILL linebacker, tight end, third down pass rush specialist (assuming Jones doesn't re-sign).

  • Free agent receivers cost a ton of $$$$. See last year - even the mediocre WR's got paid. It'd be much cheaper - and I'd argue you'd get better value - to look at proven three-tech DT's hitting free agency (there are some expected to be available) and going WR in the draft.

    This.

    O-line depth would be 6th on the list and even then only tackle depth who can compete for RT down the road. Our guard situation is more than capable when healthy, IMO.

  • Ezekiel Ansah. I don't care if he is a DE. They need him. He's athletic enough to play any position, including DB. :)

  • Big time speedy gamebreaking wide reciever Receiver
    Defense End [important, but i get this feeling like bruce irvin is REALLY going to work out]
    Kicker - pete did NOT believe in haushka when runs came cheap. he's solid but not a guy you can "go for it" with if you beyond 30 yards. kind wack. i know its stupid to draft for a kicker, im not saying give up a high rounder for one but there was a guy (i can't remember his name) from the sec that was legatron jr.
    We are the 2014 Superbowl champions and it can never, ever be taken away.
    Greatest defense in NFL history.

  • #1: LB. WLB is the only spot on the team with a starting spot completely open to competition this offseason. It's pretty likely the team will move on from Leroy Hill. If guys like Bradford, Toomer, Smith, et al had shown more this preseason, I doubt that Hill would have even made the cut this year. The team was pretty much indifferent on bringing Hill back last year, and that was after Hill had a good season in 2011. After a mediocre season in 2012, I have to imagine that Hill is done in Seattle. Like Justin Forsett, he may not even get a camp invite this time.

    Is this the most important area of need? No. But it is the most glaringly obvious area for immediate upgrade at a starting position. Seattle's depth at LB could use improvement as well. We don't really have an insurance policy for Bobby Wagner. Which is saying something because his speed and coverage ability mean a lot to this defense.

    #2: WR. Our WR starting trio is actually pretty talented. However, both Rice and Baldwin are injury prone and we lack much depth behind them. Tate or Baldwin can be upgraded on with a very good draft pick.

    #3: DE. I'd put this #1 if I felt Clemons was a sure thing to crap out next season. Irvin looks more ideal as a permanent pass rush specialist. Clemons is 32 next season. Clemons might have a season or two left, but if a premium pass rusher reaches Seattle's first pick that player should be heavily considered. If Clemons collapses without a 3rd pass rusher waiting in the wings to replace him, our defense will be in big trouble. Basically this defense needs two ace pass rushers at all times, and right now we only have two- with one of them being in the twilight of his career.

    #4: DT. If Seattle lets Jones and/or Branch walk this offseason without replacing them with an upgrade at the position, that might telegraph an intent to draft a DT decently early. Both have done a good job this season and shouldn't be allowed to walk without a good alternative available. I would be surprised if Seattle took a DT in round 1. Although Schneider seems to always surprise early in the draft.

    #5: DB. I kind of cheated here and put DB. Seattle will need to fill the shoes of Trufant this offseason, and Sherman could miss a few games early next season. Jeron Johnson has been a solid player in big nickle situations but he's not a game changer. Seattle will probably add competition to his spot. This is not an early round priority unless value presents itself.

    No O-line mention, not even in the top 5??
