This Seattle Seahawks 2022 Mock Draft leans into the notion that the team may be due for a rebuild, as they fall to 3 and 7 through Week 10.

The Seattle Seahawks have stumbled their way into a 3 and 7 record and are currently at the bottom of the standings in the NFC West heading into Week 12. Through 10 games, the Seahawks rank 27th in passing, 23rd in rushing, and their defense is allowing over 400 yards per game to opposing offenses. When you combine this rough start with the constantly circling Russell Wilson trade rumors, it’s hard not to entertain the notion that the Seattle Seahawks may be due for a potential rebuild as fans start to shift their focus to the 2022 NFL Draft.

Unfortunately for the Seattle faithful, the team doesn’t have a first-round pick in their possession at the moment, as they sent theirs away in the 2020 blockbuster trade for Jamal Adams. That just makes every pick they do have that much more important, as they will need immediate contributors on both sides of the football if they want to take a step forward next season.

That being said, let’s take a look at some pieces that would make sense as Seattle looks to build for the future in this Seattle Seahawks 2022 mock draft.

Round 2, 37th Overall: Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State

This rebuild starts in the trenches as I have the Seahawks taking advantage of a deep and talented tackle class with the selection of Nicholas Petit-Frere out of Ohio State. The redshirt junior has the perfect blend of power and finesse as he has shown some downright violent reps on tape and he pairs that with really fluid movement skills in space.

A former five-star prospect out of Tampa, FL, Petit-Frere began his career with the Buckeyes at right tackle but has since made the transition to left where he’s really begun to hit his stride in 2021. That versatility makes him even more valuable for a team like the Seahawks, whose offensive line outlook for the future is unclear.

With Duane Brown, Brandon Shell and Jamarco Jones are all on expiring contracts, the offensive tackle position is potentially the biggest need on the team. Landing a guy with the potential of Petit-Frere could be just the perfect building block for a team looking to enter a new era of Seahawks football.
