Coming off a hollow 5-11 season, and only nine wins in the last two seasons, the rebuilding starts now for the Seattle Seahawks entering the 2010 NFL Draft.
The new regime in Seattle, GM John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll, have an infinite list of draft needs that need to be filled with the team's seven picks.
Unlike the past few seasons under Tim Ruskell heading draft-day operations, the new management will have to start drafting wisely if the franchise wants to turn the corner and regain its prowess in the NFC West—starting on the offensive line and extending to almost every position imaginable beyond targeting the hogs.
An elite offensive lineman was a priority before last year's draft, but the team decided to take linebacker Aaron Curry with the fourth overall selection.
In 2010, Seattle holds the cards with two first-round picks—the No. 6 overall from its dogged 2009 campaign and the 14th draft position from the Broncos.
Beyond the opening round, the Seahawks have five additional picks to build a competitive NFL squad that can return to tops in the NFC, only four years removed from the franchise’s Super Bowl run in 2005.
