Many experts picked the Seattle Seahawks to have a down year due to a weak offensive line and not many weapons surrounding quarterback, Russell Wilson. However, the franchise did manage to sneak into the postseason with a 10-6 record and finish second in the NFC West.
How has the offseason been for Seattle and what is their outlook for the upcoming NFL season? We break it down below.
Seattle Seahawks 2019 Season Win Total Prediction And Betting Odds

Many left this team for dead last year, and they made the postseason. They have a better roster going into this season, and their offensive line is now above average.
Betting on Their Improvements
They added to their defense and addressed their needs at wide receiver in the NFL Draft. Also, their schedule doesn’t look too imposing, especially if they make it through the early part of their schedule with a decent record.

Seattle Seahawks 2019 Roster Changes
The most notable change for the Seahawks will be the departure of a long-time receiver, Doug Baldwin and safety, Kam Chancellor. After battling injuries for multiple years, Baldwin has retired.
They addressed the need at wideout in their draft but will move forward with Tyler Lockett as the number one option in the passing game.
Keeping a Strong Defense
Defensively, they kept both Mychal Kendricks and K.J. Wright to maintain their strong linebacker corps. Mike Iupati, a key contributor on the offensive line, was also resigned. They also brought in defensive ends, Cassius Marsh and Nate Orchard.
Strategic Draft Plays
They were active with two trades. They traded DE Frank Clark and a 2019 third-round pick to Kansas City for a first and a third-round pick in the 2019 Draft and 2020 second-round pick.
A minor move also saw them trade a 2020 seventh-round pick to New England for tight end, Jacob Hollister.
Seattle Seahawks 2019 NFL Draft
Most analysts liked the Seahawks 2019 Draft. Since they knew that Doug Baldwin would no longer be in the blue and green – they went heavy on wide receivers in the Draft. They traded their 21st pick in the draft to get more picks later.
They selected L.J. Collier, a defensive end out of TCU, who was a very similar player to Frank Clark.
Second Round Pick of the Draft
In the second round, they went with Utah safety, Marquise Blair. He is a big hitter but also is excellent in coverage, which should help with Seattle also moving on with Earl Thomas.
They took DK Metcalf out of Ole Miss at the end of the second round and added Cody Barton for depth at linebacker.
Seattle Seahawks Schedule And Divisional Competition
Most have Seattle’s schedule as one of the easiest in the NFL. It ranks in the bottom third of the league on almost all strength of schedule metrics. They do have some tough dates with the AFC North early in the season, with two away games at Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
Seattle does miss much of the NFC’s best teams, aside from hosting the Saints and an away game against the Rams in Week 14.
The division has not changed much from last season. The 49ers will have their quarterback back, in Jimmy G, but Arizona still projects to be one of the worst teams in the league. The Rams made the Super Bowl last year, so they will be Seattle’s main competition in the division.
