A Seahawks seven round mock simulation

D’Ante Smith could be a strong option for the Seahawks

The Pro Football Network simulator is the best on the internet. None of the others come close really.

Last year we had a lot of fun playing around with it. The Seahawks had a cluster of picks in the first two days.

This year things are a little different with just three picks.

However, it’s still a worthwhile exercise. Firstly, the ability to trade down presents scenarios where the Seahawks add stock. Secondly, while I disagree wildly with some of their rankings and projections, it does provide an opportunity to consider what might be possible in this draft.

I’m going to re-post my horizontal board. As you can see below, there are certain players such as the Texas A&M trio Kellen Mond, Bobby Brown and Buddy Johnson that I have ranked a lot higher than the PFN simulator:

Other players, such as Quinn Meinerz, are nearly always available in round three. I can’t fathom a situation where a highly explosive, long-armed center who excelled at the Senior Bowl lasts that long.

Yes — he’s a small school prospect but so was Ali Marpet (who went in round two). Meinerz is more explosive than Marpet and he’s bigger.

Nevertheless — I do think this is going to be a draft where we’re somewhat surprised at the names available from round three onwards.

Therefore, it stands to reason that the Seahawks will trade down multiple times from #56 to fill out their board. In this simulation, that’s what I wanted to portray.

Having played around with the simulator, it’s possible to get the Seahawks to about 11 picks if you want to. I’m not sure this is realistic. Yet I wouldn’t totally rule out a situation where the Seahawks basically punt on the top-75 and decide to take their chances in the second half of the draft.

Even so, it’ll be incredibly painful to witness some of the names that will come off the board when Seattle should otherwise be picking.

One other thing to note is while many people are identifying Seattle’s key needs, I suspect this might be a draft where a long-term view is taken. As we’ve discussed — the left and right tackle, center, tight end, both starting cornerbacks, free safety and other players are all out of contract after 2021. If Jamal Adams is extended, money will be tight.

The Seahawks have little choice but to try and solve some longer term answers in this draft. Remaining needs could be addressed in the free agent market afterwards.

Here’s how the simulation played out:

#56 — traded to New Orleans for #60, #133
This is the kind of deal I wanted to kick things off. You don’t have to move down too far but you acquire an extra pick. The target was to trade down multiple times, bit by bit, in order to keep adding stock.

#60 — traded to Houston for #67, #147, #233
Having originally moved down four picks, the Seahawks move down a further seven spots. Going from #56 to #67 has so far delivered three additional picks, doubling Seattle’s stock. And they’re still in the top-70. Perfect.

#67 — traded to Denver for #71, #191
One final deal before making a pick. The Broncos offered a 2022 pick to jump four spots but I bartered for #191 instead. It all means that while the #Seahawks won’t make their first selection until #71 — at least they’ll be able to add seven players from this class.

#71 — D’Ante Smith (T, East Carolina)
With Duane Brown out of contract after 2021 and approaching his 36th birthday, it’s unclear how much longer he intends to play. Brandon Shell’s contract is also up after this year, so it’s worth spending a pick on a tackle to potentially fill either void. Smith ticks a lot of boxes. The Seahawks value length and he has 35 1/4 inch arms. He’s a 2.97 TEF tester which is in their range for explosive traits. He had a superb Senior Bowl where he showed attitude and skill. Spencer Brown could be another option if he lasts into this range (he went the pick before in this simulation). Dan Moore at Texas A&M or Tommy Doyle at Miami (Ohio) are later-round alternatives.

#129 — Buddy Johnson (LB, Texas A&M)
Let me be clear — I don’t think Johnson will last into round four. I think he deserves a second round grade. That said, I wasn’t going to pass him up here simply to prove a point. If he’s available at #129, the Seahawks might consider him to provide linebacker depth — especially with K.J. Wright unsigned. They’ve found linebackers who run elite short-shuttle times irresistible in the Carroll era. Johnson’s 4.07 would put him in the top-10 among linebackers since 2010. On top of that, he jumped a 38.5 inch vertical and a 10-8 broad. He was incredibly popular at Texas A&M and while he’s undersized (6-0, 230lbs) he plays big and physical.

#133 — Robert Hainsey (C, Notre Dame)
The center position is a tricky one to work out. It’s the one position the Seahawks might be willing to take an offensive lineman with sub-33 inch arms. If Quinn Meinerz and Kendrick Green are available with their first pick, either could easily be the guy. Yet it’s very possible the board works against them. Hainsey played right tackle at Notre Dame but switched to center at the Senior Bowl and received positive reviews. He’s 306lbs with 32 1/8 inch arms and 9 7/8 inch hands. His TEF scoring was reasonable (2.97). He was a three-year captain and he’s a tough, physical blocker. Drew Dalman was off the board prior to Seattle’s picks in round four, removing an alternative target.

#147 — Israel Mukuamu (CB, South Carolina)
This is all about body type. You only have to look at him. He might as well have ‘Seahawks cornerback’ tattoo’d on his chest. There’s been a lot of mocks and projections recently pairing the Seahawks with a cornerback at their top pick. Yet in the Carroll era, they’ve traditionally waited until this range to tap into the position. They like to target a profile. Mukuamu is 6-4, 212lbs with 34 inch arms. He has an 80 3/4 inch wingspan and was the only cornerback measured during the pro-day schedule with a +80 inch wingspan. The Seahawks are always willing to draft a player with his frame and length.

#191 — Tamorrion Terry (WR, Florida State)
The Seahawks could take a receiver earlier than this but rightly or wrongly, they might use the depth at the position to their ‘advantage’ again this year. Terry is a terrific athlete who looks the part. He can get downfield. The Seahawks only really target receivers who run a 4.4 or faster and he ticks that box (4.45). He’s nearly 6-3 and 207lbs with long 33.5 inch arms. He’s certainly got to reach a level of consistency to make it in the NFL but he’s also got a shot to be really good. You don’t often say that about players going in this range. I’m really torn on how Seattle might approach receiver in this class. There are so many productive slot types — and they could do with one of those.

#233 — Jason Pinnock (CB, Pittsburgh)
Pinnock’s a shade under 6-1 and 204lbs with 32 3/8 inch arms. He ran a 4.49 at pro-day and then added a 39.5 inch vertical and a 10-8 broad. Pinnock looks the part but he’s allowed six touchdowns of +25 yards since 2019. Staying ‘on top’ is a big deal for the Seahawks and those numbers are somewhat concerning. Yet in this range, it’s no risk at all to take on the body type and profile and see if you can create something.

#250 — John Bates (TE, Boise State)
This pick came down to Chris Evans or Bates. Evans as a running back has the explosive traits they love. They’re always willing to draft an explosive inside runner with untapped potential. He could be an UDFA target or maybe they find a way to get back into round seven to get both. I went with Bates because he’s an in-line blocker who ran a superb three cone and short shuttle. That’s the kind of tight end Seattle drafts. His 6.85 three cone at 250lbs is remarkable. As with Buddy Johnson and his short shuttle time, they might find Bates too good to pass.

Full draft class

#71 — D’Ante Smith (T)
#129 — Buddy Johnson (LB)
#133 — Robert Hainsey (C)
#147 — Israel Mukuamu (CB)
#191 — Tamorrion Terry (WR)
#233 — Jason Pinnock (CB)
#250 — John Bates (TE)

    Also, if we were interested in Giovanni Bernard, might that indicate they are looking for that kind of profile, draft hedge? Have a look at this…

    • Rob Staton

      I think they wanted Bernard though for his proven third down abilities

  2. Phil Killham

    I like the PFF tool as I can select all and draft players where they are more likely to be drafted as opposed to where they’re ranked. Plus it allows for pre draft trades if you are so inclined.

    • Mick

      PFF is way too unrealistic when it comes to trades, you get someone interested every pick and you have ridiculous deals of the kind 60 and 90 for 56, then 62 and 92 for 60, and so on.

      • Phil Killham

        No doubt, they all have their issues with accuracy and realism. I just like it as I have more control to make or not make those trades and draft for all teams based on we know right now. I also use the draft trade calculator to make sure I’m coming close to same value before I make a trade with PFF.

        My concern this year is the Hawks get caught in a position where they can’t trade to collect more picks like I suspect happened to them last year. With no combine and COVID still being an issues for collecting as much detailed information on prospects, this years draft could be another bummer for the Hawks sitting on only three picks. They still can trade, or restructure contracts. Just waiting to see which will happen.

        I love this time of the year and can’t thank Rob enough for this site and the crazy amount of incredible content produced. It is legit my favorite site that I check repeatedly every day.

      • Scot04

        I always try to only accept deals atleast close to Draftec values. Obviously some teams will overpay a little to move up for a player they really like, but it helps to keep things more realistic.

  3. WallaSean

    This strategy is the one that I have been playing out way too often. Smith is the best option in our range to provide depth across the o-line, he could even reprise the George Fant role. I also like the idea of another big fast WR day 3, someone who would normally draw the most physical CB, whom will instead be getting worked by DK on the other side of the field. I don’t think Carroll and Norton are capable of passing on a LB with a short shuttle time they like, that pick makes it all seem like a simulation. Great class to try for 2 CB prospects and camp competition. Only thing missing is a 3rd down option, Russ needs a safety valve to find, within the structure of the called plays.

  4. Russ

    Thanks for doing this mock Rob.

    I really do hope they go this route. They might be able to get a more immediately impactful player if they pick at 56 (WR3?). With how few players they have under contract in the next couple years, I’d be nice to see them fill out the roster a bit.

  5. KennyBadger

    Rob, thanks again for great material. It’s fun tinkering with the simulator. What’s interesting is creed Humphrey consistently lasts into the late second round and is almost always there even with a trade back. Do you think he’d be a good fit?

    • Rob Staton

      Sure but when you test as well as he did, those guys don’t last

  6. Troy

    I think this is the most likely outcome, they might have some trades percolating under the radar, but I’m assuming none of them happen before the draft and they end up with a slate of picks similar to this.

    Hopefully they can tap into this deep oline/wr/CB class with some real impact starters.

  7. Mark

    Hi Rob,

    Just wanted to get your thoughts on Shakur Brown at Michigan State and Jaylen Mayfield?

    • Rob Staton

      Mayfield’s testing numbers and measurements were so bad. It’s a hard pass for me. Shakur Brown is 5-9 with short arms and ran a 4.64. So same thoughts, really.

  8. L80

    I’m hoping that JS doesn’t just trade back for the sake of doing it. We face Donald a minimum of twice a year and Center is a desperate need. Get that center of a decade at #56 is what I think.

    • Rob Staton

      They should be all gone by that point

  9. Scot04

    Was wondering your thoughts on Trey Hill as a possible later round option at C/G
    6’3″, 320pounds, 33-5/8″ arms says he models his game after the Pouncy twins. Seems like a pretty high upside Center prospect.

    • Rob Staton

      Had surgery on both knees in December, still hasn’t recovered fully. I’m wary.

      • Scot04

        Yeah, that’s why i figured he might be worth a late round flyer. Because when healthy, nasty blocker and can hold up well in pass pro vrs 1 on 1.

  10. Julian Langdon

    After a few trades I picked

    #92 – Kendrick Green OC
    #129 – Bobby Brown DT
    #138 – Dayo Odeyingbo DT/DE 2022
    #142 – Divine Deablo SS
    #149 – Cade Johnson WR
    #156 – Benjamin St-Juste CB
    #190 – Tre McKitty TE
    #192 – Tre Brown FS
    #220 – Malcolm Koonce SAM

    I didn’t get an OT, but was higher on each of these picks than a corresponding Tackle in each position.

    It’ll be interesting to see where Dayo Odeyingbo goes? Presumably to a team with multiple picks.

    Tre Brown had an excellent Senior Bowl, a real ball hawk in the secondary. I don’t hear much talk about him.

    I think my least likely available pick is Bobby Brown. It’s easy to say various players will go higher, but looking at the PFN Board, it’s also not obvious which players they’ve way over rated and will obviously fall?

    • Sea Mode

      I like the Dayo stash, but as you say, not sure this is the year we will be able to spare picks for stashing players.

  11. BoiseSeahawk

    As long as we have better analytics than we did in 2019.. frikin marquise blair in the 2nd! barton! collier in the 1st! worst draft effort in recent memory.

    • Rohan Raman

      And DK Metcalf in the 2nd……

      • BoiseSeahawk

        We were fortunate he was available late. But honestly, those were 3 clear reaches at the top of our draft (collier, blair, barton)

  12. Denver Hawker

    Sheldon Richardson back in the market. Wonder if we have enough cash to bring him back.

    • Rob Staton

      Quick reminder that Bobby Wagner looked awesome playing behind Sheldon Richardson

      • WEScoast

        Yes, Bobby had a career year behind Sheldon Richardson. Definitely freed him up.

    • cha

      Go get him. Please.

      • Denver Hawker

        If we did, I would finally feel comfortable proclaiming we actually upgraded a unit in Free Agency.

      • Lewis

        That’d be great!

      • Sea Mode

        Likely too expensive.

    • Ukhawk

      Other options remain on the market incl
      Geno Atkins
      Jurell Casey
      Maurice Hurst
      PJ Hall

      • Rob Staton

        I think the signing of Al Woods finished things off at DT personally

        • cha

          Al Woods is 34, didn’t play last year and has averaged about 30 snaps a game in his last 3 seasons.

          You may be right, but he aint the answer.

          • Rob Staton

            Maybe not but they signed him

  13. Hoggs41

    Interesting question is will they want to go quality over quantity this year? When it comes to the Lt position Im guessing they have had a conversation with Brown on what he might want to do. If he say I want to continue playing I could see them abandoning that position in the draft and signing him to extension sometime this summer. If he has told them Im done I love the pick of Smith. Either way I guess I would like it.

  14. JJ


    With all the resources the hawks have put into the dline this offseason if they keep Adams how do you think they will use him? I just don’t see him in the traditional strong safety roll and I hope the need to bliz is diminished.

    • Rob Staton

      I don’t know to be honest

      • JLemere

        If they don’t bring back KJ by training camp, all signs will point to PC and Norton Jr. trying to create a 4-2-5 defense with Adams being the centerpiece.

        • TomLPDX

          I personally think KJ will be signed back after the draft at a decent rate. Let’s face it, he won’t get what he wants from other teams and he still wants to play for a little longer. I think he retires as a Seahawk at a team-friendly price and we get to love on KJ for a long time after he retires. Ultimate Seahawk!

    • cha

      My cynical side is casting back to the 2020 offseason, when the Seahawks went on a Tight End spending spree after having all their TE’s hurt in 2019 and Jacob Hollister was the lone player left. An obvious overreaction.

      Then they had no idea how to deploy those tight ends in the season.

      Feels like that’s what they’re doing with defensive ends this year. Will they know how to get the best out of everyone? Will Alton Robinson be an inexplicable scratch again so Benson Mayowa can log 50 snaps and be useless?

      • Rob Staton

        This is a really valid and strong point cha

      • Big Mike

        Better question cha: will they scratch Alton so a 4th string TE (like happened with Willson last year) can sit on the bench and cheer the guys on?

        • Rob Staton

          This team 🤦‍♂️

      • Hughz

        I don’t think that’s a fair comparison. DEs need to be rotated out to keep them fresh. Plus playing DE is a lot more physical and more likely for someone to get injured than the TE group. I do agree that they pooped the bed with the TE group last year.

        • cha

          Sure but you can’t have 12 defensive linemen active on game day.

  15. DW

    I’ve fallen in love with the idea of with the idea of Terry in a Seahawks uniform. I’m of the team where you might as well bet on upside in the draft since it’s almost all a crapshoot anyways. (Yes I know McDowell, blah blah blah)

    • Rob Staton

      I don’t think it is a crapshoot

      You’re not going to hit on every pick but if you make sensible decisions every year and put yourself in a position where you’re not reaching on desperate needs you can consistently have good drafts

      And there are teams out there doing that

      • Big Mike

        Baltimore and KC come to mind immediately. GB too.

    • MyChestIsBeastMode

      Agree with Rob that picking doesn’t have to be a crapshoot and there are observation/assessment skills that can increase odds of hitting on a draft pick. As for Malik Mcdowell, obviously with hindsight it was about as bad of an outcome as a team could have. He was a risk for talk of lack of commitment and maturity. Still, he had the intangibles to be a stud and I’m sure based on the fact they drafted him that Pete felt he could find a way to maximize the kid’s potential. For all the talk of Calais Campbell, my guess is PC/JS thought he could be our version of that. They’ve never seemed to shy away from risks if they felt the potential high enough. But, play with fire and eventually you’re gonna get burned. Stings all the more watching Watt the younger continue to excel. Still, while I wish we chose differently, and feel that pick alone led to a series of moves & trades that ultimately ended up hurting the team, I don’t blame them for taking a chance on the upside.

  16. Blitzy the Clown

    I did one too.

    I traded 56 to Green Bay for 62 and 142
    I traded 62 to Denver for 71 and 114
    I traded 71 to Tampa Bay for 95 and 137
    I traded 114 to Houston for 147, 158, 195 and 203

    So I had picks 95, 129, 137, 142, 147, 158, 195 and 203.

    95 – Kendrick Green OG/C Illinois
    129 – Dayo Odeyingbo EDGE Vanderbuilt
    137 – Benjamin St. Juste CB Minnesota
    142 – Buddy Johnson LB TAMU
    147 – Demetric Felton WR/RB UCLA
    158 – Aaron Banks OG Notre Dame
    195 – Israel Mukuamu S/CB South Carolina
    203 – Simi Fehoko WR Stanford

    Not a bad haul considering no picks in the top 75.

    • Spectator

      Count me as loving this one. I really hope we grab and stash Dayo. Make not having a first next year, more tolerable.

    • Sea Mode

      Nice draft.

      Not picking until R3 would hurt, but if they’re not willing to trade Adams, then that might be the only way to recoup picks.

    The NCAA has officially passed its new transfer rules: student-athletes are now allowed to transfer once without sitting out a year and are immediately eligible to play at a new school.

    As it should be.

  18. Sea Mode

    Field Yates

    Former Raiders DE Arden Key and DT Maurice Hurst each cleared waivers and are now free agents.

  19. Sea Mode

    Just ran a couple sims.

    In the first one, after one small trade down, the offers I got wanted me to trade down too far out of top 100. So I actually ended up giving up our 2022 R3 to move back up into late R2 and select Kellen Mond.

    OC Josh Myers
    QB Kellen Mond
    SS Divine Deablo
    RB Chris Evans

    Second time around I traded down several times before trading with the Vikings for 90 and 91 then just took the best two players I saw there. (Ben Cleveland was oh so close to falling to me)

    90. Brady Christensen, OT, BYU
    91. D’Ante Smith, OT, East Carolina
    129. Jaelon Darden, WR, North Texas
    152.Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota
    196.Buddy Johnson, LB, Texas A&M
    250.Gerrid Doaks, RB, Cincinnati

    We have to find a way to recoup some picks. Have to.

    • Sea Mode

      Ok, one more determined to go RB early. Got better trade offers, but didn’t like the players as much afterwards. Had Landon Dickerson available before the first small trade down, but I figure that’s just not realistic.

      Still didn’t end up too bad as a whole, I think.

      77. Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina
      114. Buddy Johnson, LB, Texas A&M
      129. Jaelon Darden, WR, North Texas
      131. Drew Dalman, OC, Stanford
      177. Benjamin St-Juste, CB, Minnesota
      197. Ta’Quon Graham, DT, Texas
      209. Cornell Powell, WR, Clemson

      • Denver Hawker

        Kiper has St. Juste in R2. He seems pretty informed on guys climbing up the charts.

    • Spectator

      Personally, if we walked out of the draft with Myers, Deablo, and Evans alone, I’d count that as a win. I don’t see them being anywhere near those picks, much less adding in Mond. But if for some reason they are, substitute mond for a WO like Dyami, and I’d be very happy with those 4 players. I don’t see any way Mond makes it to end of second, and if he did with the QB needy teams not taking him, that would tell me something about him.

      • Sea Mode

        Yeah, as I said, I did have to give up next year’s R3 to move up for Mond. But if they believe in him, hard to argue against some insurance against another Wilson circus next off-season.

        I like Deablo and I thought it was great value where I picked him, but I’m not sure he really makes sense if we don’t trade Adams.

        • Julian Langdon

          It’s never a bad idea to double down on positions in the draft if the value is there.

          Picking a player the team has a high value on as a starter, at a point in the draft below where the team rates him, can prove to be a great pick irrespective of the teams needs. Doubling down on a position of strength can mean future draft capital is created with a trade, whether that be the veteran in situ or the player drafted a year or two down the line.

          Free agency is the portal to fill needs.

        • BoiseSeahawk

          They could stash Deablo and look for a trade partner for Adams after the draft and pre-season games. That way we could include some proven vets in the deal and recoup some future picks.

  20. Sea Mode

    I really like the idea of adding some x-factor to the offense with guys like Michael Carter and Jaelon Darden to incorporate the tweaks to the offense coming in with Waldron. Would be a big boost towards adding a short and medium passing game to compliment our deep stuff with Lockett and Metcalf.

    As long as we get an OL from this deep class to go with them, I’d say it would be a successful little draft given the lack of picks.

    I could stand skipping CB project since we did add Witherspoon, and either re-sign Britt or just grab a body to play LB for now.

    Rob and Gang,
    With new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, do you guys see any how we pick offensive player? I know we have only 3 picks.

      * on how we pick offensive player

    • Denver Hawker

      I think he’ll inform the scheme and JS will get the player.

  22. SamprasSultanOfSwat

    Thanks Rob. If the Hawks end of with 7 picks it would be great. Even if they are lower round picks. John Schneider always seems to find value in the later rounds. Last year it was was Alton Robinson in the 5th and Freddie Swain in the 6th round.

    • Julian Langdon

      I agree they look nice picks, but they’ve got to play more snaps before they can show us their value.

    Thanks for the great work and the reframing of what the Hawks may target with later picks.

    I’ve stopped expecting any major trades, but I still feel that trading Adams would be a solid decision, both from the cap management and from getting some draft capital back this year. I ran a simulation using the #18 pick from Miami as the only additional starting pick, but I traded back several times (including three times in the first and second rounds). The result wasn’t nearly as bad as I feared– it’s amazing the power of not throwing away a first-rounder.

    What a state Seahawk fandom is in where we have to daydream.

  26. Mick

    PFN now ranks Meinerz at 50 and Dickerson at 59. I don’t think we’ll get a shot at either of them at 56.

    • Sea Mode

      I think between these three and Josh Myers, one of them will make it to 56. (It won’t be Dickerson, IMO) The Hawks might be forced to trade down a couple times though, as we all have in our mocks, and then would likely miss out on them.

      I see Landon Dickerson OUT of the first round and locking into round two with all three centers (Dickerson, Meinerz and Humphrey) going inside the first 70 picks.

      • Denver Hawker

        I think this will be exciting to follow in the draft. Just going off of cap allocations, there are few teams in the league that would cite Center as a top draft priority. Of those teams, the Chiefs, Packers, and Rams stick out and all sit behind the Hawks. If they all pass on them R1, could very well have great options there at 56.

        • Rob Staton

          Or they could use the picks they have that Seattle doesn’t have to move ahead of Seattle, fairly easily

          • Denver Hawker

            I was thinking more likely to be bidding to trade with Seattle to get ahead of each other.

        • Scot04

          If Dickerson or Meinerz somehow slip to 56; Seahawks should not screw around, they should just take them. Meyers as well.

      • Henry Taylor

        TBH the more I’ve watched of him I don’t think Kendrick Green is that far behind those guys, so I’m very comfortable trading back into the third and drafting him regardless of who is left (minus Meinerz and Dickerson, who won’t be imo)

  27. Sea Mode

    Adam Schefter

    Bears signed former 49ers’ WR Marquise Goodwin

  28. Sneekes

    Not sure if intentional, accidental or subconscious, but loved the positioning of ‘Sherwood Forrest’ on the horizontal board.

    • no frickin clue

      lol. Now all we need is a Nottingham listed in rounds 6-7.

  29. swedenhawk

    watch PCJS draft Bates in the second round…

  30. cha


    Banger indeed! What a way to kick off the season.

    • Rob Staton

      I love American descriptions for soccer.

      A banger in England is a sausage.

      Here it’s being used to describe a good goal.


      • Henry Taylor

        Mash is a good delivery?

        • Rob Staton

          Maybe ‘mash’ could be the VAR, ruling the goal out

          • Henry Taylor

            I’m definitely gonna be using this.

  31. Matty

    Love the PFN simulator

    Like this outcome

    Trade 56 with the Jags (not sure it was value)
    #65 Liam Eichenberg
    #106 Ben Cleveland
    #129 Bobby Brown

    They all sound like heavy hitters

  32. chirpy

    Just curious – why do you prefer the PFN simulator to the PFF one?

    • Rob Staton

      It’s just easier to use, better trade options etc
