The 2013 season couldn’t have gone any better for the Seattle Seahawks. They lost only three games all year, were dominant in the Super Bowl, and finished the year as healthy as I have ever seen a team finish.
This will go down as one of the most dominant Super Bowl champion teams of all-time, taking down the Denver Broncos in impressive fashion and coming into this year as favorites to repeat.
The Seahawks aren’t without flaw, but their biggest question marks will come from how they replace the big name players that have left, as well as some of the key backups and special teams players.

Seahawks Team Needs
1. Wide Receiver
Seattle lost leading receiver Golden Tate to the Lions. They could target WR in the first round of the draft.
2. Offensive Tackle
Breno Giacomini bolted for the Jets, so Seattle could look to upgrade at tackle in the early rounds of the draft.
The Seahawks could upgrade both guard positions, and left guard Paul McQuistan left in free agency.
5. Defensive Tackle
6. Tight End
