If Seattle is going to repeat as division champions in the tough NFC West, it will need to acquire some offensive weapons for quarterback Russell Wilson, while ensuring that he's protected. The Seahawks defense was the best in both yards and points allowed in 2013, leaving the team's draft needs primarily offensive.
1. Offensive Tackle
The Seahawks offensive line allowed 44 sacks in 2013, 10th in the league. Replace Russell Wilson with a less mobile pocket passer, and the Seahawks could have easily led the league. Wilson's ability to escape bailed them out this year, but the need cannot continue to go unaddressed. Tackle Breno Giocamini and guard/tackle Paul McQuistan are set to hit free agency. Replacing them and adding depth should be a top priority for the team with the second most rushing attempts in 2013.
2. Wide Receiver
Receiver depth allowed the Seahawks to get by while Percy Harvin missed most of the 2013 season, but this may not be the case in 2014. Golden Tate will be a free agents, while Doug Baldwin will become a restricted free agent. Sidney Rice, who has played a full schedule in just two of seven seasons, likely will be a cap casualty. Couple this with questions surrounding Harvin's durability, and the team has a clear lack of receiving threats for quarterback Russell Wilson.
3. Tight End
Zach Miller, who racked up just 33 receptions for 387 yards and five touchdowns in 2013, is almost certain to be a salary cap cut this offseason. The Seahawks don't use the tight-end position enough to pay top dollar. And backup Luke Willson, who caught 20 passes for for 272 yards and a score, is serviceable. The Seahawks likely will add tight-end depth in the draft.
