4 potential Commanders domino effects from Russell Wilson trade

2. Will Seahawks use No. 9 overall pick on a QB?
Now equipped with a first-round pick — the Jets currently own Seattle’s 2022 first-rounder (No. 10 overall) from the Jamal Adams trade — you can’t rule out the Seahawks selecting a quarterback ninth overall in April’s draft.
Like we said earlier, they could always trade for Garoppolo or another veteran placeholder. However, the Seahawks now enter the mix of teams the Commanders need to look our for on draft night. After all, there’s always a chance Pete Carroll prioritizes the betterment of the franchise.
We’re just speculating, but say Drew Lock and Jacob Eason are the only QBs on the roster come April 28. Assuming the free agent and trade markets have fizzled out by then, Seattle could draft Kenny Pickett to compete for the starting job.
We have no idea what’s going to happen, but the Commanders need to consider any and all scenarios after whiffing on Wilson. Unfortunately for them, Seattle just managed to leapfrog them by two picks in the 2022 draft.
Imagine Seattle drafts someone Washington had circled? Talk about getting hit with stray bullets.
