The Seattle Seahawks are the Super Bowl Champions, and they are a young team with the potential to be a dynasty. The reason Seattle is so good and could continue to be good for years to come is because they are the best in the league when it comes to the NFL Draft. This year, Seattle has the 32nd overall pick in the first round, and they can go a number of different directions.

Here are five scenarios that could play out for the Seahawks.

5. Draft Timmy Jernigan

Seattle is built on their great defense. They did lose Red Bryant in free agency, and they could look to replace him in the draft. One option would be Timmy Jernigan of Florida State. Jernigan is a DT who can stop the run, as well as put pressure on the QB.

4. Trade Up and Draft Mike Evans

Seattle lost Golden Tate in free agency, and could look for a WR in the draft. If Seattle wanted to make a huge splash, they could trade up in the first round and draft Mike Evans of Texas A&M. Evans is a huge target and would be a great complement to speedy WR Percy Harvin.

3. Draft Jason Verrett

Seattle lost CB Walter Thurmond in free agency. They have potential replacements on the roster, but if they wanted to address the position in the draft; Jason Verrett would be a great fit. He could start, or learn from Richard Sherman and be worked in slowly.

2. Draft Stephon Tuitt

Seattle could look to add to their defensive line by drafting DT Stephon Tuitt. Tuitt would help clog up the middle of the line and be a strong run stopper for the Seahawks.

Seattle could look to add a great pass-catching TE in the draft, and Jace Amaro would be a perfect fit. Amaro has great hands. If Seattle drafts him, he could become Russel Wilson’s security blanket, making their offense even better.
