Seahawks 2023 NFL mock draft: The Sweet Home Alabama edition

 After two contentious months of negotiations, Pete Carroll and John Schneider decide they’d rather rebuild around a quarterback on a rookie contract.

Smith-Njigba (6-foot-0, 197 pounds) only played three games this season for the Buckeyes,

 but he did more than enough as a Sophomore to prove he’s ready for this level.

No, the Seahawks don’t need to take a running back this early but that’s never stopped them before.

They’ll also need another good one if Rashaad Penny either leaves in free agency or decides to retire rather than risk another major injury.

Gibbs (5-foot-11, 200 pounds) has the requisite build for a Seattle back to go with quality production across the board.

With Georgia’s Jalen Carter going off the board at No. 1 overall to the Bears,

the Seahawks have to settle for the second tier of interior linemen.

Dexter (6-foot-6, 303 pounds) should help their issues defending the run and can get to the quarterback,

too. He posted five sacks and 10.5 tackles for a loss at Florida.
