    “With the 31st pick in the 2015 NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks select…

    JIMMY GRAHAM!!!”

    sorry, couldn’t resist.

  2. j says:

    Heard there is this guy Jimmy Graham out of Miami. Projects to be available at 31, would really help with the passing game. Could be a dominant TE.

  3. bigDhawk says:

    The player just says ‘please stand by’. Am I missing something?

  4. Bill Bobaggins says:

    Rob…John Clayton was just reporting that La’el Collins could fall into the 3rd. Would it be a pipe dream to think he’s there at 63 and we get one of the best guards in the draft?

    • Steele1324 says:

      Pipe dream. Is that a pun?

    • bigDhawk says:

      Not the best if he goes to jail, Aaron Hernandez style.

      • Bill Bobaggins says:

        Obviously.

        Police say he’s not a suspect. That wasn’t the case with Hernandez ever.

        • bigDhawk says:

          That can change quick. With no information there is no way teams can invest any substantive draft capital in him with this sudden, dire revelation.

        • j says:

          No suspect just means they don’t have anything linking him to the crime right now. They can’t proclaim him as a suspect without some evidence – just because its his girlfriend that was killed.

          They could get evidence tomorrow – video surveillance, fingerprints, DNA – and then boom – suspect.

  5. Steele1324 says:

    I am the only one who is tired of Mariota and Jameis?

    • Screeching Hawk says:

      I’m sick of them also Steele. I just so wish we could get Dante Flower Jr, he seems quite Seahawky doesn’t he. This is fun, thanks so much Rob!

  6. Volume12 says:

    These damn clues are addictive and intriguing. They’re definetly good brain exercises.

    The 1st clue they’re playing baaketball. WR Jaelen Strong has a BB background.

    The 2nd clue ?uestlove, drummer for the hip hop group The Roots, is from Philly, as is WR Jaelen Strong.

    Clue 3 Dave Chappelle mentions Jimmy Fallon getting ‘stronger.’ Again ?uestlove is in the clip. But he also mentions Muhammad Ali. Is it Hobart OL Ali Marpet? He also mentions Portland, Maine. ‘UCLA DE ‘Diggy’ Owdighizuwa whose from Portland,Oregon?

  7. Jordan says:

    Does this not work on cellphones? Just keeps loading :/

  8. Laubster says:

    The first clue is about Jimmy Graham – basketball, born in North Carolina, and Pete is certain

  9. arias says:

    wh0a … so Michael Bennett is hanging out with Atlanta during the draft? Anyone watching NFL Live?

  10. Nathan says:

    Pretty boring draft so far.

    Leonard Williams falling to 6 the only real story so far.

  11. bigDhawk says:

    Ugh. Todd Gurley in the division.

  12. AlaskaHawk says:

    Omg at louis just picked Tod Gurley. Now we get to face him twice a year!

    • Steele1324 says:

      Hope the Rams fail to bolster their O line. And the Hawks do bolster the D line. High priority now.

  13. Steele1324 says:

    Todd Gurley to the Rams is going to be a nasty problem for the Seahawks. Wow.

  14. Volume12 says:

    Gurley goes to the Rams who have no O-line to protect him.

  15. Scott Allen says:

    You guys are at least 20 seconds behind NFL.com

  16. Volume12 says:

    Todd Gurley to the Rams, I’m kind of glad honestly. Would Seattle want it any other way? Give them the best the NFL supposedly has to offer. Just more fuel added to the fire/that awful taste left over in their mouths.

    Great back, let’s see how healthy he can be considering he’s missed games every year in CFB. Not hurt, every guy plays hurt, but missing games is the bigger picture. Ecspecially in the most physical or punishing division in football.

  17. Nathan says:

    The run on receivers hasn’t started yet.

  18. Volume12 says:

    Melvin Gordon. Love that fit in SD!

  19. bigDhawk says:

    So my DGB to KC at 18 prediction goes up in smoke.

  20. bigDhawk says:

    Crap. No trade up for Erving. Not a bad haul for the Brownies in the first round.

  21. Steele1324 says:

    Arik Armstead. Another 49er to not worry too much about. I love seeing them blow things.

  22. Kyle says:

    CAN SOMETHING CRAZY HAPPEN PLEASE?!?! All the picks have been pretty logical so far.

  23. AlaskaHawk says:

    Bud Dupree falls to the Steelers. What a great fit for the old Steel Curtain.

    • TwistedChopper says:

      I drafted Bud Dupree for the Pittsburg Steelers in the KJR 950 Softy Mahler/Millen Mock draft.

      I didn’t win any prizes. However the dude who drafted Landon Collins for the 49ers at #14.

      Ugh.

  24. Nathan says:

    Denver may have just killed off our chance of trading with Detroit.

  25. Screeching Hawk says:

    That makes sense Shane was just trying to bring an ounce of midwest bud to Colorado. He seems like a good kid and I hope he’s learned a lesson.

  26. vrtkolman says:

    This draft has going really well for us so far – SF blowing their pick and then Arizona getting screwed over by Denver and having to take a meh offensive tackle instead of Shane Ray. Gurley is great but the Rams were going to get someone great at 10 no matter what.

  27. Nathan says:

    God the colts are dickheads.

    That is easily the worst pick in the 1st round.

  28. Bill Bobaggins says:

    Oh man…DGB is officially within trading range. So is Randy Gregory. But of course, JS and PC will draft someone COMPLETELY different than them.

    “The Seahawks have traded up to grab Mark Richards, Guard out of Azusa Pacific University.”

  29. Ho Lee Chit says:

    7 O Linemen, 6 WR’s and 5 DB’s in the first round.

  30. redzone086 says:

    The biggest surprise in the draft is that nothing happened.

    • Steele1324 says:

      A nice uneventful day one for the Seahawks. And so far, the competition did not a lot scarier.

      • Dawgma says:

        I don’t know, if St Louis ever finds a QB they’ll be freaking tough.

        • Volume12 says:

          Their always tough regardless. Maybe now some people will believe me that STL is our biggest/main rival once again. One of only 4 teams in the NFC that improved this off-season. Us, Washington, Atlanta, and St. Louis.

  31. Trevor says:

    I hope the Hawks have some good contacts inside the Baton Rouge police force to find out if Collins had anything to do with that tragedy. If he is clean then my goodness he would be a steal at 63. If there is even a hint he was involved then you immediately take him off the board.

    Lots of great options left in round 2 let the fun begin. Never thought I would say this but can’t wait till day 3 of the draft.

    • Volume12 says:

      Me either. I’ve actually always loved the 3rd day of the draft. These 1st rounders will bust at a higher and quicker rate, and even more so in this particular draft class.

    • Ho Lee Chit says:

      Louisiana is so corrupt I am sure Paul Allen can find out whatever we need to know.

  32. Volume12 says:

    Worst picks of the 1st round IMO.

    19. Cleveland Browns-Cameron Erving, C, Florida St: What are they doing? They have no weapons on the outside, and you don’t need a C, so you draft one, and are going to ask him to play RG or RT and take him away from his best position/what he does best?

    25. Carolina Panthers- Shaq Thompson, OLB?, UW: What is this kid? Does he know? Carolina can’t really afford a guy like this in the 1st, but whatever, that’s their mistake.

    27. Dallas Cowboys- Byron Jones, CB/S, UCONN: Freak athlete, but the kid can’t tackle worth a damn, and has no idea how to play corner, Dallas desperately needs defenders and takes a project huh?

    29. Indianapolis Colts- Phillip Dorsett, WR, Miami, fla: They need defenders, but keep loading up on offense with a defensive minded HC at the helm huh? I like Dorsett, but don’t think he adds anything they didn’t have.

    31. New Orleans Saints- Stephone Anthony, MLB, Clemson- Again I like Anthony, but no way this dude is better than UCLA’s Eric Kendricks who is a flatout playmaker/ball-hawk.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn says:

      Anthony is a star waiting to happen, I thought that was a shrewd pick.

      Colts are going to try to attack everyone with STAR WARS speed. This is exactly the type of tea Seattle would struggle with .. small shifty WRs. This might dictate looking at smaller / shiftier CBs in the draft for Seattle.

      Erving might be the first domino, maybe the Browns are going to move another OL via trade or cut someone to save some cap space. Quality pick.

      • Greens24 says:

        Also Alex Mack’s contract is up after next year

        • Volume12 says:

          Anthon isn’t better than Kendricks IMO. We’ll see.

          How many times is Luck going to get killed back there before they get some O-line help. They might try star wars speed stuff, but without a defense to protect their lead, it won’t matter. See Chip Kelly and his Eagles.

          Good point about Mack, but C Ryan Seymour was one of the best young, up and coming centers in the league last year. They have a C, but no QB and no weapons? In that division? No thanks.

  33. Volume12 says:

    Sounds like that Gurley pick is really causing some turmoil in STL already.

    And it also seems like he won’t be ready until mid-season anyways. Which is smart, because you never know with guys and these ACL injuries. Yes, it’s not the same as it used to be or a career ender, and medicine/doctors are extremely advanced, but look at P-Rich. Almost or 2 years removed from his injury and shreds the other knee or same one, I can’t recall, but you get my point.

  34. CharlieTheUnicorn says:

    La’el Collins, would you spend a 4th or 5th round pick on him? Even thought the “murder” stuff is unresolved?

    • Ho Lee Chit says:

      I think if he plays OT it is going to be on the right side. I think I would take Donovan Smith if they are both there. I suspect the murder stuff will go away. Teams are not going to take any chances after Aaron Hernandez, however. We will need to see who is available when we pick.

    • Volume12 says:

      That’s tough. He asked the NFL to remove him from this draft, so is his heart in it? IDK and IS fear other teams don’t as well. It’s a sad/messed up situation all around. I hope his name is cleared, because if it’s a murder for hire, worst case scenario, then that’s a Rae Carruth or Aaron Hernandez type deal.
