The Seattle Seahawks will look to bounce back in 2022 after failing to make the playoffs this past season. The only problem is that the team does not own a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. A recent report revealed that they could opt to acquire one by trading wide receiver DK Metcalf.

While there is no reason to believe this will actually happen, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic said it is the Seahawks' "only realistic option" if they want a first-round pick. Seattle could deal quarterback Russell Wilson instead, but the team has been adamant that he is not available.

It's worth mentioning that Metcalf's contract does expire at the end of the 2022 season and there is no guarantee that he will re-sign with Seattle. Overall, the 24-year-old has racked up 3,170 yards and 29 touchdowns on 216 receptions since entering the NFL in 2019 (49 games played).

Of course, a number of teams looking to upgrade its receiving core would likely jump at the chance to acquire a freaky athletic deep threat at WR. Philadelphia sticks out a potential landing spot given the team is in possession of three top-20 picks and has almost no depth behind DeVonta Smith.

Making a move like this would single-handedly alter the future of the Seahawks. It would be a shocking way for the front office to show that it isn't afraid of entering a rebuilding era. For now, Seattle has odds set at +3600 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
