Matt Peterson tracks the offseason needs of every team in the league. Today’s franchise, the Seattle Seahawks [full archive here].

Season Recap: I’m a fan of Head Coach Pete Carroll. He took an untalented team to the playoffs his first season and led an inspired group to some upset (Giants, Ravens, Eagles, Bears) victories in year two, while staying competitive in many of the other games with Tavaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback. If newly signed free agent, Matt Flynn plays nearly as well as he did in limited time in Green Bay, the Seahawks could be sleepers.

Team Needs:
1. Inside Linebacker: Seattle dealt with the loss of David Hawthorne to New Orleans by signing Barrett Ruud- Seattle has a glaring need at middle linebacker. Luke Kuechly is a stud and would be a great selection in round one, that is if he lasts that long.

2. Defensive End: The Seahawks need a player who can get to the quarterback opposite of Chris Clemons. Melvin Ingram would look good in Seattle’s new uniforms.

3. Wide Receiver: Mike Williams’ looked like his old self this past season and Sidney Rice couldn’t stay healthy. Matt Flynn came from a team that had about 15 solid weapons around him. Seattle should add another playmaker to Flynn’s arsenal. Stephen Hill, Kendall Wright, and Reuben Randle are possible targets.
