4 Hall of Famers among top draft picks in Seahawks' history
FILE - In this Dec. 30, 2018, file photo, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, left, talks with general manager John Schneider before the team's NFL football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Seattle. There is a clear and obvious need for the Seahawks to address along the defensive line and it happens to be one of the deeper positions of talent in the entire draft. That may be far too simplistic and straightforward for Schneider and Carroll. Schneider is always good for a few surprises in the draft, and more than a couple of trades.
So, while it seems addressing the pass rush — especially with the continuing unknowns around Jadeveon Clowney — is the obvious direction for Schneider and the Seahawks, it’s never that clear with Seattle. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File)

Three former first-round picks by Seattle are already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, with a fourth set to be inducted later this year. With respect to safety Kenny Easley (No. 4 in 1981), the late Cortez Kennedy (No. 3 in 1990) and Steve Hutchinson (No. 17 in 2001), the nod goes to left tackle Jones. While Easley, Kennedy and Hutchinson were dominant players at their positions, Jones is in the conversation as the best left tackle of all-time. Jones was the second of Seattle’s two first-round picks in 1997, selected at No. 6 overall. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)
FILE - In this Nov. 11, 2019, file photo, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (90) applies pressure to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (10) during an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif. Seattle made a couple of additions bringing back Bruce Irvin and Benson Mayowa in free agency. But with continued uncertainty about Clowney, the pass rush must be a priority in the upcoming draft.
