A day removed from Seattle's impressive Super Bowl domination, the Seahawks' offseason has officially begun.
As such, the 2014 NFL draft process can begin in earnest, with the world champions forced to make tough decisions about who they can re-sign, who needs to be replaced in the draft and where they most need to stockpile talent to develop.
The combination of general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll has resulted in surprising and, more importantly, enviably successful drafts for the team over the past few seasons, a trend they surely would like to continue following the franchise's first ever Super Bowl victory.
Schneider and Carroll have established a reputation as a duo willing to challenge long-practiced strategies on building an NFL franchise. They take chances on unheralded prospects, give rookies significant minutes and prize risk-taking over adhering to the conventions of personnel evaluation.
In a league filled with front offices devoid of creative thinkers and risk-takers, the Seahawks offer a fresh take on team building.
It is thanks to this innovation and brassiness that the Seahawks hoisted the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday night, but the team's roster is not without its weaknesses.
With that in mind, here are six positions the Seahawks will most likely be focusing on in the upcoming 2014 NFL draft. Each positional analysis will propose ideal early-round prospects and late-round sleepers the team should be targeting.
