3 Positions Of Need For The Seahawks In The 1st Round Of The 2018 NFL Draft

The Seattle Seahawks finished the regular season with a 9-7 record, finishing second in the NFC West. As shown by an underwhelming season, Seattle has holes they need to fill, and the draft is the first step to improving their roster. If you are unaware where the Seahawks are drafting, then check out the current NFL Draft order as of today. Here are three positions of need for the Seahawks in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

1.) Offensive Tackle
The addition of offensive tackle Duane Brown was great for the Seahawks, but the team still desperately needs offensive tackles. Seattle had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL allowing 43 sacks on quarterback Russell Wilson this season. Wilson is one of the most mobile quarterbacks in the league so allowing this many sacks is eye-opening. If they want to keep their franchise quarterback healthy then addressing the offensive line is a must.

2.) Offensive Guard
Protecting Wilson should be Seattle's top priority this offseason. Adding a guard not only protects Wilson, but it will allow the Seahawks to run the ball effectively. The Seahawks need to take some of the pressure of Wilson's shoulders and having a running game starts with the big guys in the trenches blocking. Seattle had four rushing touchdowns last season and Wilson had three of them.

3.) Cornerback
The Seattle defense suffered a bunch of injuries this season and one of the biggest was when cornerback Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles in Week 10. After the Sherman injury, the Seahawks allowed seven touchdowns to the wide receiver position. With the future of Sherman, safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas in question, the Seahawks need to start building a new "Legion of Boom."
