The biggest day of the NFL calendar is here. The Seattle Seahawks are on the clock with their first pick in this year’s draft, and they’re ready to make a move for that missing piece. They’ll need to outpace some other teams who have already selected players, including two rivals from just down I-5 – San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.
When the NFL Draft happened, I went to bed as early as I could that night. Worried about what would happen when my number was called, I just wanted it all to be over with. Instead of waiting for hours on end and watching in horror at each pick like you might think, I decided to grab a beer out of sheer boredom.

The Seattle Seahawks’ 2021 season did not go as well as they had hoped. The Seahawks finished 7-10 in 2021, missing the playoffs for just the second time in the past ten years, after going 12-4 in 2020 and winning the NFC West.
Russell Wilson, a nine-time Pro Bowler, was dealt to the Denver Broncos in March, ushering in a new era for Pete Carroll, but that’s no longer the case.
The Seahawks did a good job addressing some holes throughout the summer, but they’ll need to do it again in the 2022 NFL Draft, when they have eight picks. Their most pressing need was on the offensive line, particularly at tackle, which they addressed quickly by picking Charles Cross at No. 9.

The Seattle Seahawks were in need of an offensive lineman, and in Charles Cross, they may have landed the greatest one in this draft. While Evan Neal may meet the description, a lot of people had Cross in that slot, so Pete Carroll’s decision to put him there at No. 9 was a no-brainer.
