The Seahawks reportedly aren't standing pat when it comes to the quarterback position.

After losing Russell Wilson this offseason, there's "a very real possibility" Seattle moves up in the draft to take a QB, according to Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.

Per Pauline, "Word is there’s a very real possibility the Seattle Seahawks move into the back end of Round 1 and grab their quarterback of the future." Adding, insiders say it's a "definite" that the Seahawks draft offensive tackle Trevor Penning at No. 9. So Seattle's quarterback pick will likely come with its second pick after they trade up. As is stands, the Seahawks QB room is made up of Drew Lock, Geno Smith and Jacob Eason. And while Smith stepped in pretty admirably last season when Russell Wilson went done, none of the 'Hawks current options at quarterback appear to be the answer.

Many believe Seattle must draft a quarterback this year. But, it remains to be seen who will still be on the board as the first round draws to a close.

Possibly prospects like Desmond Ridder, Matt Corral and Sam Howell. However, you never really know what can happen on draft day.
