Seattle Opts for Experience Over Projects in Draft Class
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks were not in search of projects in this year’s NFL draft. That might have to do with the changes to this offseason made necessary by the coronavirus pandemic. The Seahawks appeared to focus less on the quantity of selections and more on players who can be successful contributors without major makeovers. Seattle finished the draft with eight selections, tied for the fewest made by general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll during their tenures. All eight picks were from programs in Power Five conferences. Several could contribute right away.
