2021 Seattle Seahawks Preview

Head Coach: Pete Carroll

2020

Record: 12-4

The Seahawks took fans on a h@ll of a journey in 2020. For the first month they looked like the Class of the NFL. They finished the season on a roll before the Rams sent them home in the postseason. And those couple of months in between? Just a straight up average football team. The strong finish wasn’t as good as it looked, though; that run was predominantly against bad and broken teams.

2021

2021 Draft Picks

2-56 WR D’Wayne Eskridge, Western Michigan

4-137 DB Tre Brown, Oklahoma

6-208 T Stone Forsythe, Florida

Nothing here to get excited about.

Key Pick Ups

Gerald Everett – TE (from Rams)

Gabe Jackson – G (from Raiders)

Ahkello Witherspoon – CB (from 49ers)

Jackson will make an immediate impact. Beyond that? Meh.

Key Losses

Carlos Hyde – RB (to Jaguars)

K.J. Wright – LB (FA)

Shaquill Griffin – CB (to Jaguars)

Jarran Reed – DT (to Chiefs)

The D was already subpar; losing Griffin and Reed was a killer.

Offense

Offensive Coordinator: Shane Waldron

2020 Points Scored: 459 (8th)

With Russel Wilson under center, the Seahawks are going to win their share of games, but the running game will be average at best. There are enough weapons to put up points though, and they’ll need to, because…

Defense

Defensive Coordinator: Ken Norton

2020 Points Allowed: 371 (15th)

Don’t be fooled by the Seahawks defensive resurgence as the season ended… they really didn’t see a decent QB other than Kyler Murray the entire second half of the season. As said above, losing Griffin and Reed is devastating, and they really didn’t bring in anyone of note to help. The Seahawks D will look a lot like it did the first half of 2020.

Special Teams

Jason Meyer and Michael Dickson are a great 1-2 punch at K and P, respectably. Special teams will again be a strength.

If Things Go Well

Can Wilson carry this team? Yes. There will be shootouts, and Wilson leads them to victory in enough of them to slip into the postseason.

If They Don’t

The D is terrible, and lack of a significant running game makes the Seahawks one dimensional and allows defenses to tee off on Wilson and in coverage.

Prediction

Wilson will keep the Seahawks in most games, but there just isn’t enough help on the other side to think this is a playoff team.
