Seahawks 2022 NFL Mock Draft showdown: Which class is better?
Two very different 7-round mock draft scenarios: Which do you prefer?
On Sunday morning, I posted a video to YouTube of myself doing two seven-round mock drafts for the Seattle Seahawks. One was on ProFootballFocus, one was on TheDraftNetwork, and the mock draft simulator on ProFootballNetwork… let’s just say that I must have been having “network connectivity issues.”
You will be able to watch and hear my entire Seahawks mock drafting thought process by clicking on the video below. If you have zero interest in hearing my voice, no problem, I’m going to post screenshots of how both 7-round mock drafts went for me.

PFF Mock Draft
The Seahawks build up the trenches with their first two picks because the offensive line and edge rushing options were underwhelming; the top-two cornerbacks were already gone by pick nine too.
Andersen has tons of upside and could be a Week 1 starter for the Seahawks defense, while Cam Jurgens will push Austin Blythe to be Seattle’s starting center.
Watch HOW I did this here:
The Draft Network
Travon Walker is getting “first overall” buzz recently and so he feels like a steal at nine, even though both Derek Stingley and Sauce Gardner were both left on the board this time. By teams picking Malik Willis and receivers in the top-eight, it made the board a lot nicer-looking for Seattle at their first round pick.
I then made some very Seahawks-like picks, including a running back in the second round. And I felt like Carson Strong could be a fantastic value in the third round—or a waste! He has a better arm than the majority of 2022 NFL Draft prospects, including Willis.
Tell me in the comments what your INSTANT REACTION was to these two mock drafts. Picks that stood out for good or bad reasons. Needs that weren’t filled. Everything you love and hate about the PFF and TDN mock drafts
I’ve also created a Seaside Survey for readers to vote anonymously for their favorite of the two drafts: Let’s get hella survey answers in here.

I still Believe the Hawks trade down. This is so much fun, like being in a candy shop. I like a combination of those. RB and Smoke would add to the fun. Really like Jordan Davis and a LB too.
Would be happy with either actually, albeit leaning to the PFF one bc I think Jordan Davis is a unicorn and Abraham Lucas in the 2nd round is highway robbery. Also love Anderson and Jurgens, man that’s a helluva draft if it were to be possible.
