The Seattle Seahawks made it all the way to the Divisional Round this past season, which is pretty impressive considering many felt this would be a rebuilding year for the team. However, any team that has Russell Wilson on it is going to be great, and in 2020, I fully expect them to be back in the picture again in the NFC.
Looking at this roster as a whole, there are some glaring needs entering next season, including getting better at wide receiver, adding depth at running back, and improving in the secondary. With the No. 27 overall pick, Seattle could roll the dice on one of the better safeties in this draft class, bringing in Xavier McKinney from Alabama.
Since Earl Thomas left, the Seahawks have been looking for an answer at safety, and they get one in the person of McKinney. This is a guy who is not only a ballhawk, but also can come up and make the big hits, and after playing at Alabama, he enters the NFL with a winning pedigree, something expected in Seattle.
The Baltimore Ravens were stunned in the Divisional Round by the Tennessee Titans, as their defense had no answer for Titans star running back Derrick Henry. Henry ran for almost 200 yards against the Ravens defense, and heading into next season, Baltimore has to do something about their defensive line.
Sure, the Ravens defense was downright dominant at times this season, but the game against the Titans showed a glaring hole that needs to be patched up. With pick No. 28 in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, I like the team to go after Alabama defensive lineman Raekwon Davis, who is one of the more versatile defensive linemen in this draft class.
Baltimore has the talent on offense to be very good for a very long time, and their defense is also incredibly impressive at times as well. Davis is not only a solid run defender, but is also athletic enough to get in the backfield and wreck havoc, making him one of the more interesting prospects in this draft class.
