Seattle Seahawks meet with surprise quarterback prospect ahead of 2024 NFL Draft

Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks seem to be locked and loaded at the quarterback position heading into this month’s NFL Draft.

Seattle retains former NFL Comeback Player of the Year Geno Smith at QB1. The team also acquired former Washington Commanders starter Sam Howell for pennies on the dollar in a trade earlier this offseason.

Whether either signal caller can be seen as the future under center in the Pacific Northwest remains to be seen. What we do know is that general manager John Schneider is leaving no stone unturned with the 2024 NFL Draft roughly two weeks away.

That includes bringing in prospects from positions on both sides of the ball as Seattle looks to catch up with the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West moving forward.

NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport was the first to report this meeting on Tuesday. It’s interesting to look at given that Rattler is seen as one of the most-intriguing prospects in the draft class.

The 6-foot-1 signal caller improved his game this past season at South Carolina after beginning his college career with a thud as a member of the Oklahoma Sooners.

  • Spencer Rattler stats (2023): 69% completion, 3,186 passing yards, 23 total TD, 8 INT

Seattle boasts the 16th pick in the annual event later this month. Rattler is not expected to go anywhere near that high.

Instead, visiting with the prospect could be an indication that the Seahawks are considering moving back into the second round after yielding their original pick to the New York Giants in the Leonard Williams trade last season.

There is also an off-chance that Seattle trades down from 16 and potentially reaches for Rattler later in the first round.

Either way, there is now some pre-draft intrigue in Seattle as it relates to their quarterback situation.
