Hopefully this is meaningless trivia by Sunday night, but just in case:
If Seattle loses to Washington, the highest they could pick is 22nd. Of the 8 WC round teams, only Green Bay and Houston would pick lower than Seattle if they also lose. Seattle wins the SOS tiebreaker against Green Bay but loses it to Indy (lower SOS is good for the draft tiebreaker). And unless you think Cincy/Minny can pull upsets, you're looking at a likely #24 pick. Theoretically, if the Patriots and Broncos meet in the AFC championship like most expect and Seattle reaches the NFC championship but loses, they'd pick 29th. So there's not a ton of difference in draft position between going one and done or making it pretty far.
And I shouldn't have to type this- but just in case: No I am not in any way advocating draft position. That would be insane. Just clarifying where our pick would be and illustrating how little our pick will change even with a deep playoff run.
