Prediction for the 2020 Seattle Seahawks

Michael Traweek, Staff

Last year, the Seahawks beat expectations and ended the year with a 10-6 record even though they were in the middle of a rebuild. This year they are coming back with a lot of new and younger players. In the last month alone the Seahawks have lost Frank Clark, Doug Baldwin, and Kam Chancellor, who all played pivotal roles for the team.


During the offseason, the Seahawks have done everything in their power to try and replace all of the players they have lost. So far I believe they have done a pretty good job doing so.

Recently they have signed defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, a free agent from the Detroit Lions, and cornerback Jamar Taylor

Seattle has also brought in 11 players through the NFL draft that should make immediate impacts on the field whether it’s on offense or defense or even special teams. Some of the rookies like Cody Barton from Utah and Ben Burr Kirven from Washington impressed the coaches in Rookie Mini Camp.

As said by  Pete Carroll during a press conference about the two players, “[they]were both really impressive just throughout the first day to have so much command of what we were doing, um the communication and their awareness, and changing the fronts, and doing the things they had to do, they were really good at it.

The Seattle Seahawks have a lot of potential to once again beat expectations this year. They will have a dangerous offense with players like Russell Wilson, Chris Carson, Tyler Lockett, and D.K. Metcalf. Their defense is weaker than their offense, but with Bobby Wagner, newly acquired Ezekiel Ansah, and Tre Flowers they could have a surprisingly good year.

With all of this being said I would expect this team to go 11-5 which is a one-game improvement from last year where they were only picked to go 4-12 by most analysts. With all of the new additions, the Seahawks have made to their roster they should be able to make a push late into the playoffs.
