Fantasy Football Impact: 2013 Seattle Seahawks Draft

Draft Recap

Coming into this draft the Seahawks had already taken care of their biggest needs, so they focused on acquiring quality depth. Without having a first round pick the Seahawks made a questionable move with their second round pick selecting Texas A&M RB Christine Michael. Its not that Michael is a bad player, but the ‘hawks are deep at RB (Maybe they know something about Marshawn Lynch that we don’t…). Regardless, they left the first two rounds without acquiring much of anything that will help them in the short term.

Fantasy Impact

You are not going to find a lot of fantasy impact from this draft this season, but Seattle added some quality players that should be able to take over for some of the veterans down the road. The aforementioned Michael is a prime example of that as he figures to see limited opportunities behind both Lynch and Robert Turbin on the depth chart.

The biggest impact from this draft is clearly trading their first round pick for Percy Harvin. Harvin adds a whole new element to the offense that Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch will benefit from.
