Seattle Seahawks: Trade for Drew Lock – Draft Matt Corral
Spoiler alert — the biggest move I’m projecting in the 2022 NFL offseason — at this particular point in time — is a Russell Wilson trade to the Denver Broncos.
If the Broncos hire Dan Quinn as their next head coach, and he’s the current odds-on favorite, it’s not difficult to connect some of the dots there.
Wilson apparently has the Broncos on his preferred trade list, as well.
If the Seahawks trade Wilson to the Broncos, I’m not going to sit here and say that Drew Lock would be a centerpiece, but he would give the Seahawks a player who can play right away while they groom someone else.
In this case, that player is Matt Corral.
If you squint hard enough, you can see a little bit of Russell Wilson in Matt Corral.
Prior to injury, Corral was one of the most exciting quarterbacks in college football and the Seahawks could now get him at a time very reasonable price.
I think when he’s healthy, Corral could absolutely come in and be a solid playmaker for the Seahawks at the QB position. Trading Russell Wilson would replenish this team’s depleted draft capital from the awful Jamal Adams trade, and acquiring a player like Corral could quickly reset things in Seattle.
A player like Drew Lock could have some intriguing value as well. Lock may turn the ball over at a high rate but he is also capable of getting the ball to an offense’s playmakers and he’s shown growth with the Broncos over the last year.
