Live: 2020 NFL Draft (rounds 2&3)

April 24th, 2020 | Written by Rob Staton

Welcome to the live blog. I’ll be posting thoughts on every pick as they come in.

Join in via the comments section but please — no tipping picks.

This is a key day for the Seahawks. There are lots of good players still available. Their picks at #59 and #64 match up well to the pass rushers and defensive linemen.

Second round

#33 Cincinnati — Tee Higgins (WR, Clemson)
Higgins is fine. He can be productive, especially with Joe Burrow. He needs a big target. But I can’t get over him pulling out of the combine because he needed a ‘rest’.

#34 Indianapolis — Michael Pittman Jr (WR, USC)
The second round kicks off with a run on receivers. This was a big need for the Colts. Pittman is a classy player. The concern is whether he’ll be able to separate.

#35 Detroit — D’Andre Swift (RB, Georgia)
And now here comes the run on running backs. Detroit will have a tandem of Kerryon Johnson and D’Andre Swift. That’s a good duo.

#36 New York Giants — Xavier McKinney (S, Alabama)
He was always overrated by the media. He’s not a rangy safety, he’s a 4.6 runner and he was blitzed a lot. You can get after him in the running game.

#37 New England — Kyle Dugger (S, Lenoir-Rhyne)
This is such a Patriots pick. Versatile safety. Physical. Alpha male. A perfect fit.

#38 Carolina — Yetur Gross-Matos (DE, Penn State)
Roger Goodell said Gross-ma-toast! He must’ve been speaking to JC this week. They needed a bigger end to compliment Brian Burns. I like it when a team commits to improve one particular unit and Derrick Brown plus Gross-Matos will do that.

#39 Miami — Robert Hunt (T, Louisiana-Lafayette)
Superb pick for Miami. Whether he plays guard or tackle, he has a chance to be a long-time exceptional offensive lineman. This is superb value.

#40 Houston — Ross Blacklock (DT, TCU)
I was never a big fan of Blacklock’s. Didn’t have a great short shuttle and his win percentage wasn’t anything special. Shorter arms.

#41 Indianapolis (v/CLE) — Jonathan Taylor (RB, Wisconsin)
The Colts moved up three spots to secure Taylor. They’re building around Philip Rivers and this is tremendous value. A stud player with outstanding upside.

#42 Jacksonville — Laviska Shenault (WR, Colorado)
He can be a playmaker but you’ve got to have a plan for him. He’s caught between a runner and a receiver and he needs a manufactured role.

#43 Chicago — Cole Kmet (TE, Notre Dame)
Everyone says he put on a show at the combine. Check his three cone. It was poor. And that’s the test that history tells us really matters.

#44 Cleveland — Grant Delpit (S, LSU)
A year ago they took Greedy Williams when he fell. History repeats here. Delpit is a top-15 talent. Goodness knows what the league found out for him to last this long.

#45 Tampa Bay — Antoine Winfield (S, Minnesota)
Wonderful player. A huge playmaker. Fast, fluid, mature. Tampa Bay’s productive off-season continues.

#46 Denver — K.J. Hamler (WR, Penn State)
I like this move. You’ve got to try and outgun Kansas City. You’ve got to give Drew Lock a fighting chance. Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant and now Hamler can help create a dynamic offense.

#47 Atlanta — Marlon Davidson (DT, Auburn)
He’s full of personality but what is his position? Can he adjust to play three technique? It’s a big question mark.

#48 Seattle (v/NYJ) — Darrell Taylor (DE, Tennessee)
The Seahawks trade #101 to move up 11 spots to go and get… Darrell Taylor. A highly athletic, massive potential pass rusher. I love the pick. Go and get some pass rush. Go and get some upside.

#49 Pittsburgh — Chase Claypool (WR, Notre Dame)
Claypool is a fantastic, physical specimen. He’ll do it all — special teams, blocking and receiving. The Steelers always hit on receivers.

#50 Chicago — Jaylon Johnson (CB, Utah)
There was a feeling he could sneak into the back end of round one. This is decent value at pick #50.

#51 Dallas — Trevon Diggs (CB, Alabama)
Dallas double down on value. Whatever anyone says about Jerry Jones — the man has drafted well for a few years now. Diggs can track the ball, he has ideal size and he has as much potential as his brother.

#52 LA Rams — Cam Akers (RB, Florida State)
The Seahawks better get on the phone to Isaiah Crowell or the Beast. The fantastic five are down to just J.K. Dobbins. It’s a great scheme fit, unfortunately for Seattle.

#53 Philadelphia — Jalen Hurts (QB, Oklahoma)
This is interesting. Not sure how Hurts or Carson Wentz will feel about this. Wentz will wonder if he’s looking over his shoulder. Hurts will wonder if he’s going to be stuck behind another QB — just like he was in Alabama.

#54 Buffalo — A.J. Epenesa (DE, Iowa)
I said I wouldn’t take him in the top-50. The NFL seemed to agree. Look — he can do some things well. But he’s lacks quickness. He won’t find easy wins in the NFL. He’ll have to make it happen. He needs to get quicker and stronger.

#55 Baltimore — J.K. Dobbins (RB, Ohio State)
There go the top five runners. Now there’s a serious drop to the next tier. The Ravens love to run and Dobbins is highly explosive and athletic. He delivers in big games.

#56 Miami — Raekwon Davis (DT, Alabama)
Really like Miami’s two picks today. Robert Hunt and now big Raekwon. That’s a lot of toughness and physicality. He has Calais Campbell level potential.

#57 LA Rams — Van Jefferson (WR, Florida)
He’s very polished and well coached. We don’t have testing numbers though. What is his upside?

#58 Minnesota — Ezra Cleveland (T, Boise State)
He was getting a lot of first round buzz but he lasted deep into round two. The Vikings needed some O-line help. He is very explosive and athletic.

#59 New York Jets (v/SEA) — Denzel Mims (WR, Baylor)
This was Seattle’s original pick. It’s unclear why Mims lasted this long. The Jets get good value and fill two big needs with Mekhi Becton and now Mims.

#60 New England (v/BAL) — Josh Uche (EDGE, Michigan)
Another great and typical defensive fit for New England. They took Chase Winovich a year ago. They love players with this kind of size and pass rush production. The Pats are taking their guys. They moved up a few spots here in a deal with the Ravens.

#61 Tennessee — Kristian Fulton (CB, LSU)
This is good value. He lacks size and length but he competes well above his size and like Trevon Diggs he can track the ball.

#62 Green Bay — A.J. Dillon (RB, Boston College)
This is a reach for me. He’s hugely athletic and powerful but he’s also a north-south type who is a bit stiff. There’s no jump cut.

#63 Kansas City — Willie Gay Jr (LB, Mississippi State)
As you can probably guess, I love this Chiefs draft. They’ve taken two of my favourite players. Gay is a fantastic athlete comparable to Bobby Wagner and he’s a playmaker.

#64 Carolina (v/SEA) — Jeremy Chinn (S, Southern Illinois)
The Seahawks have traded down to pick #69 and gain pick #148 (the second pick in round five). I mocked Chinn to the Panthers a couple of times. They needed a safety and Chinn is a dynamic, fast last line of the defense. He’s got range. I don’t know why people think he can play linebacker though. He’s 100% a safety.

Round three

#65 Cincinnati — Logan Wilson (LB, Wyoming)
Love this pick. Wilson is physical and he flies to the football. He’s a leader and was a three-year captain at Wyoming. He had a ton of interceptions. Superb value here.

#66 Washington — Antonio Gibson (RB, Memphis)
The player many talked about in the build up to the draft about his ability to switch from receiver to running back.

#67 Detroit — Julian Okwara (DE, Notre Dame)
He’s going to join his brother in Detroit. This is a great value pick. He had a 23% win rate. He has speed and length. He’s stronger than people think.

#68 New York Jets — Ashtyn Davis (S, California)
This is the pick the Jets got for Leonard Williams. I wasn’t a fan of Davis. Great athlete but his tape is all over the place sometimes.

#69 Seattle (v/CAR) — Damien Lewis (G, LSU)
I love Damien Lewis. I loved interviewing him. He’s a powerful monster of a man. He was superb at the Senior Bowl. This is great value. I thought he was a second rounder. He scored an excellent 97.1 in weighted TEF. Great day for Seattle.

#70 Miami — Brandon Jones (S, Texas)
There were no testing numbers for Jones and this is probably a round higher than most expected.

#71 Baltimore — Justin Madubuike (DT, Texas A&M)
In the last week there were some reports there were character concerns with Madubuike. Nevertheless, he’s highly athletic and has a lot of potential.

#72 Arizona — Josh Jones (T, Houston)
I was never big on Josh Jones. It’ll be interesting to see if there was a reason for him lasting this long. Or maybe the league just weren’t keen.

#73 Jacksonville — DaVon Hamilton (DT, Ohio State)
This is a quality pick for the Jaguars. He can pressure up the middle and he can anchor. He has a lot of potential.

#74 New Orleans (v/CLE) — Zack Baun (LB, Wisconsin)
I was never big on Baun. He couldn’t play rush edge at 238lbs. Yet that’s what he did best at Wisconsin. So now he has to transition to linebacker. And nobody knows how that’ll go.

#75 Detroit — Jonah Jackson (G, Ohio State)
He wasn’t great at the Senior Bowl but his tape was good. He adjusted well to the change at Ohio State. You can see why the Belichick coaching/front office tree like him.

#76 Tampa Bay — Ke’Shawn Vaughn (RB, Vanderbilt)
Many believe he suffered due to Vandy’s collapse in 2019. Going into the season he was very highly rated. I liked him. A flier on him here could turn into a steal.

#77 Denver — Micheal Ojemudia (CB, Iowa)
This is a lot earlier than expected. He has Seahawks size. The cornerbacks have really flown off the board in the early rounds.

#78 Atlanta — Matt Hennessy (C, Temple)
This could mean they save some money on Alex Mack. I thought Hennessy was really good at the Senior Bowl.

#79 New York Jets — Jabari Zuniga (DE, Florida)
There goes Zuniga. He had a 20% win percentage and he has a ton of upside. I’m not crazy about Ashtyn Davis but overall I like this Jets class.

#80 Las Vegas — Lynn Bowden Jr. (WR, Kentucky)
Bowden doesn’t look that fast (and he dodged the combine) but he just has a knack of making plays. They can use him in so many ways. He has a Raider attitude.

#81 Las Vegas — Bryan Edwards (WR, South Carolina)
I love this pick. Fantastic value. He’s incredibly talented and set records at South Carolina. He plays with fire. He’s an ideal compliment to Henry Ruggs and Lynn Bowden. A classic west-coast-offense type.

#82 Dallas — Neville Gallimore (DT, Oklahoma)
Gallimore was a weird prospect. He ran a great forty but his short shuttle and three cone was abysmal. He was superb at the Senior Bowl but underwhelming on tape.

#83 Denver — Lloyd Cushenberry III (C, LSU)
He’s a really smart, consistent player. He’s not a flashy athlete. The Broncos will get a solid interior lineman though. He’s not a violent blocker like Damien Lewis.

#84 LA Rams — Terrell Lewis (DE, Alabama)
The injuries have taken a toll. He just tried to get through last season. He didn’t even try to rush the edge and plant his leg. He looks the part but will he ever be healthy?

#85 Indianapolis — Julian Blackmon (S, Utah)
On the conference all with Utah coach Kyle Whittingham this week, he was effusive in his praise of Blackmon. He talked about him more than any other Utah draft prospect.

#86 Buffalo — Zack Moss (RB, Utah)
For all the pissing and moaning by some Seahawks fans and media, the NFL has made sure the running backs have flown off the board in the first three rounds. Moss is really tough and he runs hard but he’s not a difference making athlete. Seattle’s depth at running back is going to be a question mark next season.

#87 New England — Afernee Jennings (DE, Alabama)
I thought he looked spent at Alabama. However, he’s another classic Patriots fit in terms of playing style and frame.

#88 Cleveland — Jordan Elliott (DT, Missouri)
PFF loved Elliott and Josh Jones. I didn’t at all. Both lasted into round three. I’ve no idea what PFF saw.

#89 Minnesota — Cam Dantzler (CB, Mississippi State)
His tape is fine. He’s sparky. He played well. But he’s small and lacks length.

#90 Houston — Jonathan Greenard (DE, Florida)
He’s an alpha. Great character. Good agility testing. But he’s not fast enough to trouble the edge as a pass rusher and the wrist injury is a concern.

#91 New England (v/LV) — Devin Asiasi (TE, UCLA)
Awesome pick. The Pats are having a great draft and I love this aggressive move to trade up and get Asiasi. He’s so underrated. He’s a natural running the seam and he has soft hands. He’ll be great in New England.

#92 Baltimore — Devin Duvernay (WR, Texas)
He took a lot of screens at Texas. He’s very mature and a good character. He’s a 4.3 runner. Lot’s of potential here. It’s a nice fit for Baltimore.

#93 Tennessee — Darrynton Evans (RB, Appalachian State)
Another running back off the board. I guess they don’t matter. He looked good at the combine. Nice quick feet and he’s quick.

#94 Green Bay — Josiah Deguara (TE, Cincinnati)
He had some admirers but I’m really surprised he’s gone ahead of Hunter Bryant. For me Bryant and Asiasi were the top two TE’s in this class.

#95 Denver — McTelvin Agim (DT, Arkansas)
I thought he could be a day three option for Seattle. The defensive tackles have left the board — apart from Leki Fotu. Increasingly it looks like a veteran fix there.

#96 Kansas City — Lucas Niang (T, TCU)
He surely only lasted this long due to the injury issues. It’s worth a flier in this range for a team that is already loaded.

#97 Cleveland — Jacob Phillips (LB, LSU)
He was supposed to be the big star this year, not Patrick Queen. It worked the other way round. Yet he’s still found a home in a decent range.

#98 Baltimore — Malik Harrison (LB, Ohio State)
This is a very Ravens-style Baltimore draft. They have a clear type. It all seems so obvious after. He’s a thumping 3-4 inside linebacker.

#99 New York Giants — Matt Peart (T, Connecticut)
He’s raw and needs a lot of work. However, he has ridiculous size and length and he’s highly explosive. As a raw talent — his potential is immense.

#100 Las Vegas — Tanner Muse (S, Clemson)
Of course. Mike Mayock loves these Clemson guys. Muse is that honest, hard-working type but with major athletic traits that didn’t show on tape.

#101 New England (v/NYJ) — Dalton Keene (TE, Virginia Tech)
The Patriots move up again for another tight end. He ran a superb three cone and that really matters. He’ll be a nice compliment to Devin Asiasi.

#102 Pittsburgh — Alex Highsmith (DE, Charlotte)
He had a nice win percentage of 21.7% but I couldn’t get excited about him on tape.

#103 Philadelphia — Davion Taylor (LB, Colorado)
He’s lightning quick and will fly around. He’s an Eagles type linebacker.

#104 LA Rams — Terrell Burgess (S, Utah)
He’s played corner and safety and his best fit at the next level could be at nickel.

#105 New Orleans (v/MIN) — Adam Trautman (TE, Dayton)
The Saints move up again in a trade with the Vikings. Trautman has the great three cone. There was some talk he could go as early as round two.

#106 Baltimore — Tyre Phillips (G, Mississippi State)
I liked Phillips. He deserved more attention for the way he played at the Senior Bowl. He’s massive and will kick inside perfectly to guard. This is, again, a very Baltimore type pick.

    I like the duos idea Vol brought up for the latest clues. All three movies feature a duo.

    Here are some possibilities:

    Zach Baun and Jonathan Taylor
    Jaylon Johnson and Bradly Anae
    Greenard and Zuniga
    Okwara and Claypool
    Zach Moss and Jaylon Johnson
    Raekwon Davis and Terrelle Lewis

  2. Ukhawk says:

    Just DL in R2 please?!😩

    • Rob Staton says:

      It’s the strength of the range they’ll be picking. I think you’ll be happy today.

      • Producehawk says:

        The simulator made it so I couldn’t screw up. Lots of choices at each pick. Watch me get shattered. Lol

      • Ukhawk says:

        Rob

        Great job this season!! You keep getting better and better

        I’m fully bought in and hope the get any 2 of Uche, Zuniga, Davis or Hamilton.

  3. Big Mike says:

    They just showed Jacob Eason at home with some family and there was a pretty smokin hot blonde. Anyone know if it was his mom?

  4. Dwight says:

    Rob,

    I wanted to thank you for all the dedication and work you do for us as Seahawks fans. I know you had a moment last night where you thought you’d let us down by not bringing up Brooks in the pre-draft process, but I never thought that for a moment – and I’m sure most everyone else felt the same way. For years your tireless analysis and excellent journalism has educated me and made the draft process funner, more understandable from a team-building standpoint, and more realistic from a “who will likely get drafted where” standpoint. The fact you finished third in the Huddle Report and got 28 out of 32 first rounders correct is just further validation of your skills and experience. I can’t even count how many times you were the first to bring up a likely high pick that no one in the media was considering , or even a first pick (Kyler Murray) that the rest of the analyst community were sleeping on.

    As someone who’s entire professional life revolves around research, analysis, doing write-ups of the information, and then making critical decisions based on that information that impacts millions of dollars at a time, I appreciate and understand full-well what it is you do. What makes your information superior to many in the media is the concept of relative analysis. It’s so much easier to speak in absolutes and stereotypes. It’s much harder to make a dynamic assessment based not only on the absolute data (player stats, measurements, combine testing, etc.) but how that data stacks up relative to every other player at that position. It’s exactly how you spotted Kyler Murray when so many were focused on absolute measurables. You could see Murray’s added value to winning a game relative to all the other quarterbacks in the class. Relative analysis is the hardest to achieve because it requires the most work: identifying key variables and weighting those for value, keeping an open mind, and critical thinking beyond absolute numbers. I understand that most analysts will do a degree of relative analysis, but the best are those who constantly see the world through that prism. It’s also the best way to spot “what a player can do” instead of fixating on “what they can’t do.”

    My hats off to you for so much time and sacrifice for us as fans. And I respect your experience, skills and analysis more than any other Seahawks media site (I’m not trying to put them down, I simply elevate you above the rest). There’s a saying I use when the bullets are flying and hard decisions need to be made: “I know what I know.” I may not always be right, but my process is good and I always seek to put probability on my side. I see that with you all the time. You know what you know. You’re willing to continue to learn and grow, which is great, but you also put out the best Seahawks-related analysis I have ever seen…and I’ve been following them since their very first game.

    Thank you.

  5. Ashish says:

    Any chance we trade up today?

  6. Ryanp says:

    Rob – I think maybe that clip of Cody Barton haunted their dreams as much as it did yours. I appreciate this website so much! Great content. (First time poster/long time reader.)

    • Rob Staton says:

      Good… I’m glad! It was a haunting image.

      • Saxon says:

        It was one play. I respect that Barton was smart enough not to drive a QB into the ether and hurt his team with an inevitable 15 yard personal foul.

        For the love of God can we please stop harping on this? You people are treating it like the butt fumble. Barton will be fine.

  7. Uf…I didnt sleep for 42 hours, have asleep at 8pm and woke up few minutes ago (luckily)…I dont know.what ibwould do.if I missed this…lets goooo Seahawks…

  8. Troy says:

    I’m not ready for PC/JS Wild Ride. I fully expect to be totally disappointed with whoever they pick.

  9. Jhams says:

    Top wished for me today, in no particular order.

    DaVon Hamilton
    Chase Claypool
    Ezra Cleveland/Robert Hunt/Josh Jones/maybe Peart with a 3rd
    Any of the big name running backs, although Akers with the 3rd would be ideal.
    Any of the pass rushers we’ve talked about with traits as an upside pick Taylor/Okwara/Zuniga/Utah Gross My Toast maybe/someone I’m forgetting
    Davis or Madubuike

  10. Sea Mode says:

    Wow, looks like the Colts didn’t waste a second turning in the card.

  11. Volume12 says:

    Exactly Michaelm Irvin just mentioned why I like Tee Higgins. His ability to stack DBs is one the best in this class.

  12. John L. says:

    Thank you Rob.
    Today feels like it will be a bit harder to watch, many of the names I’ve been made aware of through SDB, will be coming off of the board soon.
    CEH, and Willie Gay Jr. were my two wants, felt like they had the ability to be difference makers.
    Cautiously optimistic for today.

  13. Big Mike says:

    Too early for Indy to go Jalen as the heir to Rivers?

  14. Volume12 says:

    I think Seattle will move back off of 64 if they can

  15. Volume12 says:

    Another Will Ferrell clue. lol.

  16. mishima says:

    Daniel Jeremiah broadcasting from TJ Maxx?

  17. Producehawk says:

    I could see them trading up from 59 with their forth then trading back at 64 to get the pick back.

  18. Volume12 says:

    Swift & Kerryon? Interesting.

  19. Ashish says:

    Taylor is in danger now

  20. Coleslaw says:

    Swift and Kerryon Johnson will be a great duo.

  21. Volume12 says:

    Pats stayin’ put or moving back?

  22. Volume12 says:

    Keep the RB’s and WR’s coming please. Let the board break this way please.

  23. Volume12 says:

    Wingo is obsessed with that damn dog.

  24. hector l says:

    love J Taylor a real player

  25. STTBM says:

    Well, Detroit has been looking for a home in threat rb since Barry Sanders retired. Good get for them. Can’t wait to blow my stack,when Seattle picks someone I never heard of lol! Go Hawks!

    PS Rob, excellent job this year. There was no way to know they’d focus on LB so hard….

  26. Big Mike says:

    Rob how surprised are you that X went before Winfield?

  27. Volume12 says:

    I swear to god. If NE gets Winfield, jr? I will be mad online.

  28. Troy says:

    Starting to gain hope that we will get one of the great R2 options Rob identified. A lot of our R2 DL options still on the board. Plus Taylor and others. Hope rising slowly…

  29. Its crazy how a certain.petson.on twitter knows these picks 3-4 minutes before they announce them.

  30. Big Mike says:

    another S before Winfield ??

  31. Sea Mode says:

    Denzel Mims to CAR for Rhule?

  32. TomLPDX says:

    Thank god that YGM is off the board

  33. Kenny Sloth says:

    Back to business!! Go Hawks!! Go PCJS

  34. Madmark says:

    Today
    59 Raekwon Davis DT or Blacklock or Justin Madubuike
    64 Chase Claypool WR Davon Hamilton DT, Devin Duvernay WR or RB
    101 A.J. Dillion RB If you took RB at 64 then maybe Hamilton drops here or a T that has fallen
    Currently I still working on Brooks pick and how that can help getting a proven DE guy. We may have to take a step back this back this year in order to take a leap next year.

    • Madmark says:

      Going by a need to replace Jefferson who last year played ever position on the line. If you think you going to draft a Leo type DE your crazy. If we got Chase Young. Sure but that wasn’t going to happen. Quit whining and look at why we grab Brooks.

  35. Tony says:

    Rob, I think the seahawks are the perfect team for you to follow. This FO challenges you so much, will always keep you guessing. Any other team you would nail. It would be boring by now.

  36. Ukhawk says:

    #59 feels so farrrrrr away

  37. regan says:

    Nice pick for Carolina. Rob made me really like that guy. Ill be rooting for him.

  38. Volume12 says:

    I hope this isn’t the start of a run on D-lineman.

  39. Troy says:

    It is still early but anyone else happy with how the 2nd round started? No edge (that we targeted) has been taken, no OL taken, Taylor still on board. I still think we trade up if one of “OUR GUYS” falls to like 48-50 but so far I’m digging it.

  40. HOUSE says:

    Robert Hunt is MASSIVE!

  41. Volume12 says:

    Great pick for Miami.

  42. Big Mike says:

    earlier than expected on Hunt

  43. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    NOOOOOOOOOO!

    Now I don’t want them to draft an OL

  44. Troy says:

    Rob’s guy Robert Hunt is OFF THE BOARD! Damn.

  45. hector l says:

    J Taylor will upgrade our offence and Baun our defense we need more drafts LOL….

  46. Tony says:

    I’m rooting for guys I like to go to afc. So great pick miami!

  47. Sea Mode says:

    Mmmm… NFLN practically tipping half the picks with the house cams. 😡

  48. Henry Taylor says:

    I had a feeling he’d go earlier than expected. A great find by Rob.

  49. hector l says:

    Take the stud taylor 888

  50. Robert Hunt showed highlights of Seattles newest running back:)

  51. hector l says:

    Take the stud taylor 888..he will rock.. But dont forget Epeneza

  52. LantermanC says:

    There goes this year’s Joel Bitonio. 🙁

  53. Paul Cook says:

    Back to back ouches.

  54. Coleslaw says:

    I cant believe Ezra Cleveland is still available

  55. Producehawk says:

    Great job this year Rob! And your pointing out Hunt early is a great example of your talent.

  56. Looks like Colts traded up from 44 to 41?

  57. Rob Staton says:

    Some surprising players still available. Speaks to the quality of round two this year.

  58. Coleslaw says:

    Ross Blacklock looks like a teddy Graham lmfao

  59. Cad says:

    There goes Jonathan Taylor. Sigh.

  60. WallaSean says:

    Get ready! These next fifteen picks are going to be painful

  61. Mac says:

    Boooooo 🙁

  62. Paul Cook says:

    These picks are getting painful to watch.

  63. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    This round is totally gonna suck

    I feel bad for Taylor. He wanted SEA, he got IND.

  64. Hawks4life says:

    I love Taylor but I’m glad he’s gone so the talk can stop, we have much bigger needs.

    • Rob Staton says:

      You might regret saying that when the offense is playing like it did at the end of last season again because they have no running threat (which will be the case if Carson gets injured yet again).

      • Hawks4life says:

        You might be right but I hope not lol. Lots of good backs left in the draft we can choose from. I hope we still have a shot at a solid DE could be a run coming up

    • Coleslaw says:

      He was one of a few players that made me not care about need lol. But I can agree, glad we are more likely to target needs now.

  65. Volume12 says:

    Indy stays killing it. 3 classes on a row that are excellent.

    Taylor & Mack will be such a dope combo.

  66. Ashish says:

    Dream crushed…..now pressure is off

  67. Troy says:

    Fuuuuuccccccckkkkkkkkkkk Taylor to colts…i am dissapoint. Pour one out to our man Bobbyk who felt that in his bones.

  68. hector l says:

    GUARANTEE HE WILL OUT-RUSH ALL OTHER RUNNERS PICKED THIS YEAR

  69. Patrick Housman says:

    Colts are loading up weapons for Rivers and future QB…

  70. STTBM says:

    Tarnation! Now all I have left of rb wishlist is Dobbs or Akers….still got DT and DE studs left….

  71. Tony says:

    atleast Taylor went to afc!

  72. LantermanC says:

    Dugger, Hunt, Taylor gone in 5 picks. The sting hurts. It hurts bad.
    For whatever reason, I’ve really taken a shining to Grant Delpit. Hope he’s not gone in the next 10 picks (or maybe I do, it’s better if he’s gone at 40 than there at 54 and the Seahawks take someone else).

  73. Rashi says:

    Dobbins and Akers still there tho

  74. Paul Cook says:

    Is it just me, or are the picks just flying in this year?

  75. Sea Mode says:

    Go get JK Dobbins

  76. Madmark says:

    Sorry to say but if we trade back for more picks. I would be disappointed

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      Won’t get a lot of benefit out of trading back at this point, so I doubt much of that’s gonna happen.

      I know a lot of these pics hurt because we wanted them all, but we need to stay focused on what our primary needs are. No sense in leaving the draft ignoring our primary needs like we have done so far in the off-season.

  77. tony says:

    I’ve heard akers and Dobbins talk. Even some tauting dillon. What about mcfarland? Is he too small?

    • Sea Mode says:

      Not really our style RB, reported personality issues. (later denied by Pauline and his coaches at Maryland, but it’s out there)

  78. Rashi says:

    Lol if the Buccaners pick up dobbins here, their offense will be unstopable.

  79. hector l says:

    OK LETS GET BAUN ANDEPENEZA TO B10 STUDS

  80. Big Mike says:

    looks like theyve slowed it down for commercials and talking heads to chatter

  81. Volume12 says:

    That last clue. Courtesy of Steve Kerr. Bay area?

    Tuna. Maybe Anae?

  82. Jace says:

    The position players are flying off the board here!

  83. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Great pick. I hope they enjoy him.

  84. Volume12 says:

    What is with all the tragic backstories this year?

  85. hector l says:

    other interesting 7th rounder quintez cephus hell of a receiver great hands…

  86. Chaisson and Shenault for Jags. Two boom or bust guys.

  87. Zeke says:

    Has the draft always been this depressing? Seems like everyone has a parent or sibling who tragically died.

  88. Cad says:

    And Kmet is off the board.

  89. TomLPDX says:

    First TE off the board.

  90. Rob Staton says:

    Lot of players coming off the board I/we had no interest in.

    Which is good news I suppose.

  91. Paul Cook says:

    15 more painful picks before us unless we move up (looking doubtful now).

  92. Troy D says:

    Feeling good right now. I like how this playing out thus far.

  93. GoHawksDani says:

    This is pretty good so far, only 2-3 people went from our board

  94. Milwaukee Hawk says:

    Trying to show off some of your predraft bios on players from this fall to my fantasy football buddies – what gives having to choose the month articles were published to search? I don’t know what month you talked in depth about Kyle Dugger.

    • Coleslaw says:

      Because he does this for free and has a family to take care of. Be grateful we have this site.

      • Milwaukee Hawk says:

        Fair enough- I donate monthly to keep things going- just a change I hadn’t realized til now- seems like there used to be a total search function as of just a few weeks ago

  95. Sea Mode says:

    Tuna + Mayonaise, another “pairing”.

    Is there a pair of players from California that could interest us?

    Raekwon and Terrell Lewis as a pair?

  96. charlietheunicorn says:

    Rob, good call on Hunt

    Went much earlier than most expected.

  97. Erik says:

    Know you’re not super high on Epenesa, Rob, but at what point would you be excited for him? 64?

  98. John_s says:

    Mid round RB to keep an eye on is James Robinson from Illinois St

  99. drrew76 says:

    ESPN needs to fuck off with showing the player-cam before the pick is announced – it’s happened half a dozen times this round already.

  100. 805Hawk says:

    Had to mute Bob Condotta. He’s tipping picks a couple ahead. Frustrating.

  101. dcd2 says:

    Nice pick for Tampa.

  102. Volume12 says:

    Damn man. Winfield to a Bruce Arians coached team? 🤮

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      Tampa is going all in for a 2 year window to win a SB…… at least they are going for it.

  103. Huso Liszt says:

    Figured out PC HINT: Trevon Diggs ticks all three boxes : Alabama/ Sam Spade as in shovel “digs” , and Stepbrothers refers to his brother Stephan.

  104. charlietheunicorn says:

    Dolphins already won the draft… solid draft so far, everything else is frosting

    Tampa Bay winning the offseason

  105. hector l says:

    LOOKING back we should have moved down taket JT and perhaps a shot a delpy…i dont know what is best choice now
    any suggestions?

  106. charlietheunicorn says:

    Denver loading up on WR, not bads

  107. Matt says:

    Hamler gone…shit shit shit

    • CaptainJack says:

      We’re not taking a Smurf receiver this early. We need dline and there are so many dline options left.

  108. charlietheunicorn says:

    Do we have an update for best living room in the NFL draft contest?

  109. Zeke says:

    Sutton, Jeudy, Hamler

  110. MaxC14 says:

    TRADE!

  111. Volume12 says:

    Love what Denver has done this off-season.

  112. 805Hawk says:

    Holy crap! Trade!!!

  113. CaptainJack says:

    To the people trying to guess the clues

    How on earth did any of them relate with Jordyn Brooks yesterday?

    • Sea Mode says:

      The 1917 clip: A guy running side to side behind the trenches, weaving through traffic.

      The Toy Story clip: impressive wingspan.

      • Ben S says:

        I saw someone mention “Dumb as a stump” as a clue, is that accurate? Because I believe that Brooks scored 10 on the wonderlic

    • CHawk Talker Eric says:

      Exactly

      I asked that earlier

    • Ashish says:

      I lost interest because no one knows how it’s related. No explanation so anyone’s guess

  114. Coleslaw says:

    Oh SNAP! Davis or Dobbins? Diggs?

  115. Big Mike says:

    what we give up?

  116. Volume12 says:

    Seattle coming up for a D-lineman?

  117. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    What it gonna be?

  118. Misfit74 says:

    Seahawks traded up to 48!

  119. CaptainJack says:

    Sweet! There is a move. Please be a defensive linemen

  120. Scot04 says:

    Actually I’m very surprised they traded up

  121. Matthew Baldwin says:

    #54…Terrell Lewis DE Alabama or Darrell Taylor DE Tennessee.

    Their injury history scares me, but if they didn’t have concerns/flags, they wouldn’t be available deep in R2.

    Love the Brooks pick. Pass rush wasn’t our only need. We looked slow and were gashed on runs.

  122. Paul Cook says:

    Iwas wrong. They did move up. Make me happy.

  123. Mark Souza says:

    We’re on the clock. How are they going to surprise us this time. I am cursing now as a warm-up.

  124. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Amazing. Here we go

  125. Misfit74 says:

    Terms: Pick No. 48 for No. 59 and 101

  126. Volume12 says:

    Wooooo!!

  127. Rokas says:

    My guess is Okwara

  128. HOUSE says:

    Nice pick coming…

  129. I like the pick but why not wait until 59?

    • CaptainJack says:

      It’s pretty simple actually.

      They had intel you don’t. They thought someone was going to draft him.

  130. Volume12 says:

    Yes sir!!!!

  131. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Not thrilled with this. He has the potential, and might be worth it at 59, but I wouldn’t have moved up for him.

  132. Scot04 says:

    Like the player. But thought he might drop to 59

  133. Paul Cook says:

    Going for the potential. I don;t know if I can argue.

  134. Troy says:

    We drafted a DE! Praise jesus!

  135. CaptainJack says:

    Hell yeah!!!!

    Upside pass rusher. Nobody is a sure thing at this point. I love this pick. He’s something to work with at a position of need.

  136. charlietheunicorn says:

    Compares to Junior Galette… interesting

  137. Matt says:

    Don’t love it…oh well.

    • Matt says:

      Especially not at the expense of losing our 3rd rounder.

    • CaptainJack says:

      Any dline in this draft besides young is a roll of the dice.

      If Darrell Taylor is the roll pcjs like, I’m all for it.

      And I didn’t really want Marlon, didn’t fit our defense.

  138. hector l says:

    ok not bad Y
    Its a start now we need a
    Tackle RB receiver

  139. Sea Mode says:

    There it is!

    We nailed the clues, too.

  140. regan says:

    He’s got Juice!

  141. Volume12 says:

    I am fired the f**k up!

  142. Dawgma says:

    I was prepared to hate it when they traded up, but I like it. It makes SENSE, and is one of the few potential pass rush boosts they were going to get. Wonder what they paid to move up, one of the fourths?

  143. STTBM says:

    Well, Taylor seems like a fine pick. Madubuike, Robbins, Davis still there but likely to go soon…at least we FINALLY got an Edge with speed and a high ceiling!

  144. Hawktalker#1 says:

    can’t lose their DE guy at this point. If that was their guy, I’m thrilled

  145. HawksGal says:

    YES!!!!!!!!! Love the pick….

  146. Coleslaw says:

    Just what the doctor ordered

  147. I like the player and position fit, but we could have very likely gotten him at 59 and what did we give up?

    • Cad says:

      We swapped a second-round pick and gave up our 3rd.

    • Ishmael says:

      No way of knowing that. I mean sure, maybe they got fleeced by the Jets of all people, but it’s entirely possible that someone else was going to take him.

  148. Mark Souza says:

    Sure, DE, but the wrong DE. The guy with no burst and an extensive injury history. We are the reach masters.

  149. Three down player. Violent hands. Sets the edge. So much potential.

    • HOUSE says:

      His hands are always moving as well. He doesn’t get stuck and he looks like he changes height/angles well. If this kid refines his swim or learns a spin move… man oh man

  150. Troy D says:

    One of the ESPN guys said we were looking to trade back out of the 1st for him. Not sure where that is coming from. So looks like we didnt want to wait any longer. I like it and the way this is playing out there could be a few guys that have been highlighted here at 64 as well. Give me beef…..6’7″ beef at 64

  151. Ishmael says:

    I have a hard time believing it was tackling that caused Delpitt to drop. The vast majority of defensive backs, hell even all defensive players, in the NFL are disgustingly bad at it. It’s a technical skill that teams seemingly never bother training and it comes back to bite them over and over again. Even with the lockdown there’s no reason why you couldn’t get Delpitt working on all kinds of drills with a brother or friend while a coach watches the tape or livestream.

  152. Qoolio says:

    Ok, so how do the dominoes fall now. Taylor fills the DE, but we lose #103.

    Not a huge fan of the RBs and WRs available in the fourth round and beyond…

    #64- WR (Claypool)
    #133- OL (Adeniji)
    #144- DT (Agim)
    #213- NCB (Reid)

    ???

  153. Ukhawk says:

    DL! I like PCJSs record on tradeups

  154. drrew76 says:

    Is Frank Clark coming out of Michigan a reasonable comparison for Taylor?

  155. CaptainJack says:

    Honestly this is a great pick. I get Frank Clark vibes minus the domestic violence allegations. Just awesome

  156. Zeke says:

    damn pick 101 gone

  157. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Ouch. That cost us 101 as well

  158. Shane W says:

    Trade pick value actually has us coming out 14 points ahead but still feels like we gave up too much.

    2.59 + 3.101 = 406 points
    2.48 = 420 points

    • Coleslaw says:

      11 spots is a pretty big jump. If we had 110 we probably couldve done that.

      Kinda wish they did 133 and a 2021 6th or something

    • Brett says:

      Think of it this way … name a player the Hawks have moved up to get the last few years who didn’t turn out to be good/great.

    • Jordan says:

      Exactly. Too many people on here want us to trade back for the hell of it.. It’s clearly a buyer’s market right now. Let’s not get too cute with some of these picks.

  159. Scot04 says:

    No more 3rd round pick. 101 gone in trade

  160. Erik says:

    A little bummed we gave up our 3rd, but can’t complain about the pick itself

  161. Schism says:

    If we had taken Taylor last night and Brooks today, I think we all would have felt much better lol. Still wish we could have kept that 3rd rounder though

  162. Ishmael says:

    We were talking about potentially taking him in the first just yesterday weren’t we? Can’t be too unhappy about that.

    Now if we can somehow get Raekwon at 64…

      • Dawgma says:

        Yeah, sign me up. I think they’re trading back, though. Not enough picks left.

      • charlietheunicorn says:

        Yes, keep Hamilton in mind….. or maybe they trade a future 2nd for a current early 3rd round pick…

      • Ishmael says:

        Wouldn’t be unhappy about that. Or even if they went after Zuniga. As long as they keep attacking the front seven I’ll be pretty content. At least it shows they know what they need. Still got plenty of time to go get Wilson a couple of shiny toys.

    • HOUSE says:

      I have been chomping at the bit for Raekwon Davis… I have always thought a Calais Campbell type would be what we need. That is what Malik McDowell was suppose to be.

  163. charlietheunicorn says:

    Damn You Pittsburg

    DAYUM YOUUUUUU

  164. Paul Cook says:

    The Hawks were obviously horny for him and wanted to take no chances that he wasn’t there further down the board. That makes me feel good.

  165. Volume12 says:

    The Steelers always get stud receivers. God damn factory.

  166. I wo der if they look to go back from 64 to the third?

  167. We gave up 59 and 101 so we’re currently down to 4 picks….love the pick, but overpaid in draft capital…..64 is HUGE now and unless we have Raekwon Davis or Madibuike there, I sure hope we trade back for 80’s, + two more picks.

  168. EV says:

    What other wide receivers are we rooting for with claypool out? Pretty excited about Taylor!

  169. RWIII says:

    Absolutely love the Taylor pick. Now the Hawks need to get a defensive tackle.

  170. Would love to see Avril tutor Taylor a little since he is around. They are similar players.

  171. Sea Mode says:

    PC/JS are gonna be 🔥’d up about him at the presser!

  172. David Ashton says:

    Love the pick! Aggressive to come get one of your guys, just one pick after Davidson comes off. Bendy. Huge upside. Let’s go.

  173. Another guy they could take at 64 is Amik Robertson. Would be a serious Seahawk pick.

  174. drewdawg11 says:

    Classic John to overpay in a trade. Throwing in a third when
    Other teams are moving up with 5th rounders. It wasn’t like they jumped 20 picks. I’m so down right now. They are putting their eggs in a high-risk basket. I’m not pleased but what can I do?

  175. charlietheunicorn says:

    Get Clowney in and get Griffin in at DE….. let’s get it done!

  176. Big Mike says:

    if they screwed the stealers by jumping ahead of them, it makes me even happier
    we’ll trade down from 64 to get a earlier 3rd and like a 7th

  177. Jace says:

    Didn’t know Dak’s brothers name was Jace.. such tragic news.

  178. GoHawksDani says:

    Damn PIT… Claypool has the chance to be a WR similar as Kittle does at TE. Soft hands and crazy pancake blocks. Now if the Hawks pick WR please pick Duvernay or Joe Reed later. I don’t want anyone else

  179. Gohawks5151 says:

    Daaaannggg. I wanted Claypool. He’s going to a great WR team though

  180. Could be Cleveland or Josh Jones as well.

  181. Eburgz says:

    I like Taylor but I hate giving up a 3rd rounder to move up 11 spots in R2.

    Please stop commenting “we could have got this guy later” because who knows.

  182. Great pick for the Cowboys

  183. Jim Kelly says:

    I got here just after you posted after the Taylor pick.

    The “…” really scared me. Seeing you hesitate… and then be happy with the pick, made me hold my breath. I’ve come to rely on you too much. After list night’s shock, I’ve been experiencing a bit of trepidation. I’m willing to let the experts do their jobs, but waiting 20 hours while second guessing from my armchair (Actually my bed, but an armchair lets me climb onto my high-horse of amateur opinions.) made me more nervous than I realized.

    I’m more than mature enough to let the pros do their jobs, and wait for the results. It’s just last night I was hoping that the Seahawks would draft Taylor, but Jonathon Taylor last night. I was bummed.

    Thanks for everything, Rob.

  184. Volume12 says:

    Does Seattle go offense next or keep giving Pete his guys?

  185. GerryG says:

    Where is our native third rd pick? Who did we get for that?

  186. charlietheunicorn says:

    I hate the Rams even more now

  187. Rashi says:

    DArrell TAylor ran a 4.6 40 in high school. I think we can assume he has improved that number in 4 years of strength training at TEnnesse.

    So we are lookin guy a 6-4, 270 guy that runs a 4.55 or something like that… Yes please, sign me up!

    • Lil’stink says:

      It’s not even about his speed. I can’t believe how a guy his size can bend the edge so well.

  188. Coleslaw says:

    Akers over Dobbins

  189. Scot04 says:

    Great pick for Rams

  190. hector l says:

    Need to Help Russell
    PLEASE

  191. Paul Cook says:

    One of Rob’s diamonds gone, and a *bit* earlier than expected.

  192. Sea Mode says:

    Ah, shoot. Trade up for Dobbins using a 4th. Now!

  193. Misfit74 says:

    Someone called this based on the “Draft Clues” I think. Who was it?

  194. Gohawks5151 says:

    We should have traded back, what are they doing? What they heck, who is that guy? Why won’t they be agressive and trade up? They gave up too much for that trade!

    – Summary of Seattle draft so far. 2020

    • Its OK, they want there guys and they do what they have to do to get them. They obviously wanted Taylor bad and didnt want to risk it. I agree they probably could have waited to 59 but they wanted to be sure.

  195. Big Mike says:

    whoa, Hurts to Philly

  196. Sea Mode says:

    Whaaat. Hurts to Eagles???

  197. Troy says:

    HOLY COW HURTS TO PHILI!!!! DRAMA ALERT

  198. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Please don’t tip picks. Thank you.

  199. charlietheunicorn says:

    DT makes sense, too much sense

    CB could be a call for Hall here at 64

  200. Paul Cook says:

    On a side note, Jacob Eason is beginning to fall now.

  201. Sneekes says:

    I don’t mind the pick, but there would have been decent pass rush options at 59. I don’t like the trade-up at all. Think we’re going to have to pass on a receiver now as need DT, HB, OT much more.

  202. Volume12 says:

    Buffalo should grab JK Dobbins.

  203. Rob Staton says:

    I’m starting to think the clues were heavily weighted towards a duo.

    Book end pass rushers?

    Or a defensive tackle?

    Go and get big Raekwon or Zuniga.

  204. Zeke says:

    Is Okwara still a possibility after taking Taylor?

  205. Rob4q says:

    Lot’s of complaining we gave up too much to trade up 11 spots. They got great value and got a needed EDGE with tremendous upside! Look at the trade value chart:

    NYJ 48
    SEA 59 + 101

    Trade Totals
    NYJ Gives Value: 420
    SEA Gives Value: 406

    SEA is +14 points

    Gain/Loss %
    NYJ: -3.33%
    SEA: +3.45%

  206. STTBM says:

    Akers over Dobbins….Gross he went to Rams! Sighs a nice get for Dallas, he looks pretty badass…I hate Dallas!

    Philly takes Hurts…making up for not getting Russ lol?!

  207. DavidInBellingham says:

    Shaping up like the 2012 draft! Getting panned about our first pick, pass rush DE and MLB first two picks, now time to get the next Russell Wilson with our third round pick!

  208. charlietheunicorn says:

    Good

    Keep taking fools the Seahawks don’t want off the board!

  209. Volume12 says:

    Lol. Epenesa is such a prototypical Bills D-lineman.

  210. mishima says:

    Hunch: Josh Jones.

  211. charlietheunicorn says:

    Tunafish are killing the draft imo

    of course, you better with 5 picks in 2 rounds

  212. Paul Cook says:

    If we stay where we are, with only a decent amount of luck we’re going to get somebody good.

  213. TJ says:

    With the way these picks are falling, a lot of potential targets are still on the board. With only 9 more picks before they are up again, Seattle may be able to trade down a few spots and STILL get their guy, if their guy is one that we have been discussing.

  214. Rob Staton says:

    I made some videos anticipating a handful of picks.

    Darrell Taylor was one.

    Check it out: https://twitter.com/robstaton/status/1253843553991757829

  215. Derek says:

    What’s going on with the fall for Denzel Mims? I loved his tape and would have been top 5 WR for me.

  216. Kingdome1976 says:

    Well at least I got one player right on my 12 player entry.

  217. Coleslaw says:

    Miami added bookend OTs and another OT who will also be a stud OG. Added bookend CBs. And got possibly the top QB in the draft. They still have like a bajillion picks

  218. Sea Mode says:

    That Black Panther clue yesterday about the Jabari Tribe: Zuniga!

  219. Cleveland, Madubuike, Josh Jones, Okwara, Zuniga, Mims, Edwards, Robertson?

  220. Paul Cook says:

    Damn. One of my mouth-waterers gone.

  221. Coleslaw says:

    Well this is Ingram’s 10th season

  222. STTBM says:

    Ah, man….no more backs left! I’m not a fan of Moss….

  223. Baltimore killing it with Queens and Dobbins.

  224. mishima says:

    Roger Goodell is quite the hype man.

  225. charlietheunicorn says:

    Zuniga is a sparq’ed up fool

  226. Volume12 says:

    Charlie was right. The ‘Phins are killing it.

  227. Paul Cook says:

    Went downhill fast with Dobbins and Davis gone. Ouch.

  228. Cad says:

    These last two picks have been brutal

  229. Matt says:

    Dammit! Raekwon.

  230. STTBM says:

    Dadgum! Dolphins doing work!

  231. Rowdy says:

    What’s up with Zack baun? Did that diluted test
    Make him a day 3 pick.

  232. Scot04 says:

    Miami screws us again 1st in trade with Packers and now Davis

  233. Coleslaw says:

    Daaaamn Daniel…

  234. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Another target gone

  235. HOUSE says:

    DAMMIT man… I hate Miami for 2 picks tonight. Greedy bastards

  236. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    NOOOOOOO! the chef

  237. Matt says:

    Screw it…blow your whole load on Defense. Just get the meanest MFers you can find. Zuniga would be great at 64.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      To be fair, they need all help they can get at all levels

      • Matt says:

        I’m just saying – fix the defense. No more soft and slow people. Get big, mean, and fast. Don’t care where it’s at anymore. I want to intimidate people again.

  238. One Bad Mata'afa says:

    Didn’t someone say a clue was Zoolander?

    Blue Steele: Cleveland (Smurf turf) or Okwara (Big Blue)?

  239. Erik says:

    Man, Dolphin fans must be having a hell of a time right now. The fun might not carryover into the regular season, but what a fun draft for them

    • Coleslaw says:

      Even if Tua doesnt start right away, they were playing quite well towards the end of the year. I think they’re already at 8-8 if they play like that and with these additions in FA and draft. Still a lot more to come too.

      Dolphins gonna be most improved team for sure

  240. Aaron says:

    Miami…NOOOOOOO!!!!

  241. Kingdome1976 says:

    Sweet. Davis is off the board.

  242. Rob Staton says:

    Wonder what the story is on Ezra Cleveland, Josh Jones and Denzel Mims lasting this long.

    Plus Willie Gay and Josh Uche were being touted to go quite early today.

    • Volume12 says:

      Mims’ testing didn’t match the tape IMO, and he’s coming from an offense that badically runs HS level routes and concepts.

      • Ben S says:

        Would be an easy transition to our passing O then!

      • Volume12 says:

        Having said that, he has freakish upside and is such a physical specimen. Would make a very good 3rd or 4th wideout as he learns a route tree.

    • Rob4q says:

      There was some talk of Cleveland and Jones in round 1, even Mims late rd 1. And Uche was supposed to be long gone by now…

    • Davido says:

      Especially suprised with Mims I was sure he climbed up those draftboards over the last weeks.
      He ticks every box physically from his testing and showed game readiness in the pro bowl.
      I just get the feeling that the combine was really irrelevant this year. We just took 2 guys that didn’t test, the OLine ranking seemed to not be impacted by it much and now Mims is falling behind guys like Van Jefferson.

    • Erik says:

      Wow, totally forgot Uche was still on the board.

    • Madmark says:

      Denzel Mims is one on my mind . Goodbye David Moore was my thought you think they get him as the last talent of this WR class ?

  243. charlietheunicorn says:

    Mims, still on the board… intriquing

  244. Rob4q says:

    This draft is going to change the fortunes of the Miami Dolphins! They will be a playoff team within a year if they get decent QB play…Tua needs to be healthy and this team is set up for success for a long time! And I ink Flores is going to be a really good coach in the NFL…

    • AlaskaHawk says:

      I’m impressed. They are a team to follow – and Tampa Bay. A resurgence of power in Florida.

  245. Scot04 says:

    OT to Rams likely

  246. Jones or Cleveland for everyone?
    Zuniga or Okwara?

  247. Scot04 says:

    Love Van Jefferson. Great hands

  248. CaptainJack says:

    Davis was the first pick that really “stung” for me

  249. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    kingsbury and mcvay live together?

  250. Producehawk says:

    If I had drafted for Miami I would be kicking ass

  251. Sneekes says:

    I’d go Hamilton or trade back if possible

  252. Jace says:

    There goes my WR pick for the Hawks. Man I hate the Rams.

  253. CaptainJack says:

    Ezra Cleveland is to me what Raekwon Davis is to Kingdome

  254. John_s says:

    Hook Darrell Taylor with Cliff Avril. Cliff will get Taylor’s technique right

  255. Volume12 says:

    Great pick for Minnesota man. They’ve had a great draft.

  256. Trevor says:

    Love the pick of Taylor. If he can stay healthy he will be one of the steals of the draft. Bummed out about Claypool but happy for him going to the Steelers where they know how to develop revivers.

    Still some amazing options at the end of Rd#2 would love to see Mimms, Hamilton, Uche or Zuniga

  257. Jeff says:

    I know the clue! Part of it at least.

    Last year Seattle drafted a WR with the last pick of the 2nd round. This year they’ll do the same (“duos”).

  258. Volume12 says:

    Are the Jets moving back again?

  259. LantermanC says:

    Just realized Uche is still available… Hope he is the “bookend” to the due of Darrell Taylor… Then again, I doubt it, because how would John and Pete know he’d be available still at 64?!?!

  260. charlietheunicorn says:

    Let Russ Cook!

  261. Jeff says:

    I’m thinking it’ll be another highly athletic receiver from a southern school: Denzel Mims.

  262. CaptainJack says:

    It is so relieving to see a player you really don’t want come off the board.

  263. Volume12 says:

    How did KC get 63? Didn’t we have their 2nd or did they have multiple 2’s?

  264. Logan Lynch says:

    As weird as it looks to type this out, I don’t think SEA is going to volume draft this year. They’re going to draft a few guys they really want that they think can contribute right away. Then, they’ll sign a ton of UDFA and let those who prove themselves make it. It’s going to be a weird offseason anyway and likely be more beneficial to have veterans and quick learners. Training camp (if it ever starts) is going to be a shark tank.

  265. Rob4q says:

    Okay, as Rob notes above the top 5 RB’s are off the board. So which RB that is left do you want to see them draft? You know they are going to take one late…

    My pick is:

    Rico Dowdle, RB, South Carolina

    I think they will trade back into the 7th like last year to take him!

  266. Matt says:

    Uche is strong enough to play LEO…hmmm. I think I would kind of love a Taylor-Uche duo as the edge.

    Uche is absurdly strong for his size – wouldn’t shock me.

  267. Volume12 says:

    Look at all those receivers!

    Mims, Duvernay, Gibson (more of a gadget guy), Edwards, Lynn Bowden. Damn.

  268. The telecast keep tipping picks.

  269. Coleslaw says:

    I’m thinking we go DE again. Uche, Okwara, Zuniga, Weaver. Anyone else?

  270. McZ says:

    Good thing the Rams just spoiled their draft by not taking Ezra C.
    As a rule… if you have an elder LT and one of the worst OLs, and there is a very good player to pick up for nuts, you just have to draft.

    McVay is obsessed with pointy attackers…

  271. TomLPDX says:

    64: Bryan Edwards?

  272. Sea Mode says:

    Gregg Bell
    @gbellseattle
    ·7m

    Darrell Taylor says #Seahawks, Pete Carroll have told him they want his hand on the ground and be a straight-line pass rusher off the edge–exactly what they need. He played 2 yrs as a DE, last two as an OLB in college. Pretty familiar with 4-3 scheme, including back in HS in Va.

  273. Big Mike says:

    im still going with DT

  274. CaptainJack says:

    I wonder what the story with Mims was, but I didn’t really care for him.

  275. regan says:

    NE moving up to get Edwards?

  276. Down to maybe Okwara, Jones, Zuniga, Edward’s, Robertson maybe?

  277. charlietheunicorn says:

    Patriots……. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  278. Volume12 says:

    Wow! NE just keeps playing chess.

  279. Trevor says:

    I think that will end up being the steal of draft for Jets getting Mimms.

  280. Uche joining Winovich as Michigan boys to NE.

  281. RWIII says:

    If Schneider does not trade trade pick 64 then either DT or RB.

  282. Paul Cook says:

    It wouldn’t kill me if they traded back. And I’d be okay if they went D again.

  283. Jordan says:

    DAMN. Wanted Uche…

  284. AlaskaHawk says:

    Ferkin Patriots – hard not to admire their drafting.

    Miami shows it’s good to have 5 picks in the first two rounds.

  285. TatupuTime says:

    Ack. Hate when players I like end up on teams I don’t. Ayiuk to SF, Claypool to Pitt and Duggar/Uche to NE.

  286. Rob Staton says:

    So many good players still available. Wish we had an extra third.

  287. Scot04 says:

    Hope Zuniga or Hamilton

  288. JD says:

    Do we see Taylor as a LEO? Would that make Zuniga a more likely as a pure Edge? If Taylor’s a LEO, does that take Okwara off the board for us?

  289. CaptainJack says:

    New England killing round 2. But who is the qb of the future there.

  290. RWIII says:

    Tennessee is on the clock. Will they take a DE/Edge Rusher?

  291. I think Van Jefferson’s upside is just what the pundits say: son of a former pro and is polished in football play and character….just knows how to play. Speaking of polished and relatively untouted, I like Tyler Johnson of Minnesota..best quote I liked was, knows how to work back to the QB….a RW requirement!

  292. John_s says:

    Love this. We got some swagger back on D fellas.

    Jordyn Brooks watch first 10 seconds https://youtu.be/7_vcSX6fxx4

    Darrell Taylor http://twitter.com/VolBlood/status/1253841943257329671

  293. Zeke says:

    I’m going to rage if they pick a RB at 64

  294. TomLPDX says:

    Josh Jones still on the board…

  295. Spireite_Seahawk says:

    Did the Chiefs move in front of us at 63 or am I bleary eyed as its 2am?

  296. Logan Lynch says:

    Do they go DL again? I’d be fine with that.

    But what if they get weird and add Chinn? Sign Griffen and a vet DT to fill out the DL for this season. Offense is fine.

  297. DavidInBellingham says:

    What player might get a team to trade into 64?

  298. John_s says:

    Love this. We got some swagger back on D fellas.

    Jordyn Brooks watch first 10 seconds https://youtu.be/7_vcSX6fxx4

    Darrell Taylor http://twitter.com/VolBlood/status/1253841943257329671

  299. Volume12 says:

    Another tragic backstory. 🤦‍♂️

  300. CaptainJack says:

    I am just hoping for more d line.

  301. Thomas Wells says:

    Looking at who is left they are going to trade down or double down on the defensive line. So many good options still available: Zuniga/okwara/weaver at end and Hamilton/madubuike/fotu at dt

  302. Volume12 says:

    Jeremy Chinn is still there too.

  303. RWIII says:

    I was hoping Tennessee would take pass rush. They would be less likely go after Clowney.

  304. Bruce Smith says:

    I’m thinking O-Line, like Cushenberry.

  305. Volume12 says:

    Love AJ Dillon. In round 2 though? Ehhhh.

  306. Steve Nelsen says:

    Love seeing DaVon Hamilton still there. He was a Senior Bowl stud.

  307. Hawkster says:

    argh, AJ

  308. Big Mike says:

    early for dillon?

  309. CaptainJack says:

    Greenbay is having a pretty underwhelming draft.

    • DC says:

      Good! Let A-Rod wither away

      • Hawkster says:

        GB soooo needed a WR, they trade up to 26 and grabe Erin’s replacement. Wasn’t Riders drafteed at 26 just after a coaching change to back-up Farve? Must just be killing Rodgers.

  310. Zane says:

    I’m calling Lucas Niang here

  311. Sea Mode says:

    KC gonna take another stud? Chinn?

  312. Zeke says:

    Josh Jones, Okwara or Zuniga pls

    I’m guessing a DT though

  313. CaptainJack says:

    Nice trade down.

  314. BobbyK says:

    Hawks trade pick for picks 69 and 148.

  315. Logan Lynch says:

    Pete’s gonna want to fix the D. Any team with 2 3rd rounders that would trade up?

  316. Coleslaw says:

    Willie Gay Jr. Wouldve been nice here if we didnt pick Brooks

  317. Donny Henson says:

    looks like we are sticking with the pick. It will be the last pick for us tonight unless we trade into the back end of the third round.

  318. Ashish says:

    trade to Carolina

  319. Gohawks5151 says:

    Gay for KC

  320. HOUSE says:

    KC’s pick is in… What we doing? Picking or trading?

  321. Coug1990 says:

    Traded the pick to Carolina

  322. Paul Cook says:

    Decent draft for KC considering they’re SB champs.

  323. Coleslaw says:

    If you tip picks I will find you, and I will kill you.

  324. Big Mike says:

    KC used to problem children. could well be a helluva value for them

  325. charlietheunicorn says:

    Looking for a 5th round pick love trade!

  326. Might get 69 and 152 from Carolina?

  327. Producehawk says:

    Knew it what did we get?

  328. Big Mike says:

    so we’ve now got one in every round except 7, right?

  329. RWIII says:

    Man. The Chiefs are killing it. First CEH. Then Willie Gay Jr.

  330. Justin Mullikin says:

    I do not think people were trying to. NFL.com showed the trade like 5 minutes before it showed up on my TV.

  331. Sea Mode says:

    So we could have taken Isaiah Wilson at 27 and still gotten Gay or Logan Wilson at 64. Wow.

    • Cameron says:

      Gay a huge character question mark though. When culture is such a huge part of your program, I could easily see Gay not being on their draft board at all.

      • Sea Mode says:

        True, and he’s pretty raw as well, which is the opposite of what they said they’re after this year.

        But the athleticism is on Isaiah Simmons’ level.

        • Cameron says:

          To your point, could be a trap many fall into this year. Fall in love with athleticism, have relatively no time to develop them prior to the season.

  332. CaptainJack says:

    Just for future reference, it appears the picks on nfl.com are synced with the broadcast. I didn’t find out about who KC drafted until people on the blog did, at least Big Mike. But the trades are “tipped” (I am not certain what this even means). Just for people who are just looking at the website and not the broadcast. If I am incorrect about this, someone please let me know.

  333. Trevor says:

    The Chiefs have been just killing it the last couple of off seasons. Another great draft for them.

  334. charlietheunicorn says:

    Only dropped a few spots and got a free 5th rounder, 2nd pick I think

  335. regan says:

    5.2 for moving back 6 spots. I like that!

  336. cha says:

    So with Davon Hamilton, Zuniga and Okwara still on the board the Hawks trade back.

    OK…

  337. Volume12 says:

    #69. Nice.

  338. I think Lockett went 69 right?

  339. Volume12 says:

    The duo clue wasn’t a team was it?

    Jajuan Jennings, WR, Tennessee . Probably too slow but gritty AF.

  340. Bayahawk says:

    Carolina gonna be trouble.

  341. Paul Cook says:

    With that trade down, I’m really late for cooking dinner.

  342. Volume12 says:

    Who’d Carolina take?

  343. CaptainJack says:

    really surprised at a lot of the dline guys left on the board

  344. don says:

    Now watch all of JC’s favorites disappear in the next 4 picks

  345. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    I’d trade back again if I could. Wouldn’t be surprised.

  346. Iceman says:

    Drafting in Carroll/Schneider era hasn’t been the same since Scot McCloughan left. Need to Hire Rob.

  347. Troy D says:

    I wonder if we look to trade back again into the mid 80’s and pick up another later pick. Not sure what the value would equate too?

  348. Paul Cook says:

    Okay, don’t really care about him. Maybe they do trade back again. No surprise if they do.

  349. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    From 69 to 80 would be something in the late 120’s or early 130’s.

  350. Bayahawk says:

    Detroit should pick up Josh Jones. Leave Seattle the DL/DE picks they can choose from.

  351. Big Mike says:

    dont wanna trade back any further myself. want another d line guy,

    • Sea Mode says:

      agree. we filled the gap in R5 and still have 2 R4. let’s take our guy. Zuniga, Hamilton, Okwara: take your pick.

      Prince Tega still out there too though…

  352. STTBM says:

    Zuniga, Madubuike, Hamilton still available…

  353. Rob4q says:

    Again good value with the trade, let’s see who they take!

    Sea 64 for
    CAR 69 + 148

    Trade Totals
    SEA Gives Value: 270
    CAR Gives Value: 277.2

    Gain/Loss %
    SEA: +2.67%
    CAR: -2.6%

  354. charlietheunicorn says:

    Some quality DT prospects available. Right time to grab one.

    JK Dobbins still available I believe as well, which is shocking.

  355. jopa726 says:

    Could Devon Hamilton be the pick?

  356. Paul Cook says:

    Okay…how about we get a DT or that WR from SC that Rob drew my attention to.

  357. CaptainJack says:

    Wait, JK is still on the board? Did Rob miss that in his “big five”

  358. Volume12 says:

    Was outside having a smoke. Who did Cincy take?

  359. Producehawk says:

    Davon Hamilton, Zuniga Or maybe Jones?

  360. Troy says:

    Props to Vol12, he called that we would trade back way before it happened.

  361. Coleslaw says:

    Gibson gonna help Haskins ID defenses

  362. Georgia Hawk says:

    Kj Wright repping on Family Feud!

  363. RWIII says:

    Josh Jones, Zach Moss, Davon Hamilton, and Justin Madubuike still on the board.

  364. JimQ says:

    Is EDGE/DE-Jonathan Greenard a possibility?

  365. Sea Mode says:

    What about Prince Tega?

    Could have been the Black Panther clue too… 😬

  366. Paul Cook says:

    Personally speaking, I was never that big on Okwara.

  367. Scot04 says:

    Unfortunately Jets need edge rusher too

  368. Sea Mode says:

    Wow, imagine getting drafted to play with your brother in the NFL.

  369. RWIII says:

    Paul Cook. Brock Huard was not a big fan of Okwara either.

  370. jopa726 says:

    We are on the clock! So many options.

  371. Paul Cook says:

    OKAY! There are DT’s available here..,

  372. Joe says:

    Solid trade for the Hawks! Only they only moved back a few spots to acquire a 4th!,

  373. CaptainJack says:

    I am ready to be surprised.

  374. Volume12 says:

    I liked Ashtyn Davis.

  375. Paul Cook says:

    DT

  376. Cameron says:

    Pick is in!

  377. Volume12 says:

    Damn good pick. Something told me offense. Mauler

  378. Sea Mode says:

    Pick IN!

  379. Producehawk says:

    Head slap

  380. Big Mike says:

    didnt rob tip us as this guy being possible?

  381. CaptainJack says:

    This is the first pick that I hate.

    • Totally! All I see is everyone praising it and Rob. Sure, great OL, but during Covid-19 and all the NFL experienced lineman in free agency, I see a need for more front seven. I will say, like the pick if we had more picks available. Volume between 50-140 is key.

  382. Scot04 says:

    Another interior lineman. I love the player but very surprising

  383. Troy says:

    Lewis! I think you called that Rob, thanks for highlighting him!

  384. Paul Cook says:

    Not a sexy pick, but very efficient.

    Off to cook dinner now.

  385. Zeke says:

    Lolololol

  386. Rowdy says:

    Do we keep 9 guards this year?

  387. Sea Mode says:

    ROB’S INTERVIEW!!!!

  388. HOUSE says:

    Damien Lewis… not bad

  389. Hawkcrazy says:

    Love Lewis but really when they signed like 30 OL and still haven’t drafted a defensive tackle… Just dont understand this team

  390. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    I like the player, but again, I don’t like where they took him and honestly, with a roster already LOADED with interior OL, is this the best use of draft capital? Between the OL and DL, which position group needs more players? I rest my case.

    • hawkdawg says:

      It’s not just about volume. It’s about talent, too. Lewis will be better than any guard on our team, I’ll bet.

      • CHawk Talker Eric says:

        I agree he’s probably going to be better than the journeymen OLers they signed this offseason. But how does adding another OG make the team better when the DL remains a leaky sieve?

        • Rashi says:

          Once again draft is not over. Free agency is not over.

        • Mike says:

          Had we not signed 47 OG projects and backups, and waited for after the draft to sign em like any other team, we could have been a lot more excited about this pick. Heck, that cap space might’ve helped sign a certain player we’ve talked about all freaking offseason..

          Good player, but now it seems like we are lighting money on fire for “competition”, just not at the place we need more competition.

  391. hector l says:

    now how do we get some speed receiver …..Cephus 5th?

    • Paul Cook says:

      The bottom line is that they just didn’t value WR in this draft despite the plethora of talent i that department.

    • Davido says:

      This Dorsett guy is pretty fast. Don’t think we absolutely need to aim for speed but there are still some fast WR left for us to take in the 4th!

  392. STTBM says:

    Sigh…19 Olinemen…maybe we field an average (top 20) line this year?!

  393. pdway says:

    that is a classic Hawks G body type right there . . .

  394. Steve Nelsen says:

    You had better come to compete if you want to be on Seattle’s O-line this year.

  395. Mark Souza says:

    Well, we’ve cornered the market on guards. We have about 40 on the roster now.

  396. DC says:

    So can we cut some of those 50 journeyman OL we signed in FA?

  397. Rob4q says:

    You rock Rob!!!

  398. Best OL at senior bowl

  399. Justin Mullikin says:

    I love the pick. I was the guy who looked up Damien Lewis after I misunderstood what Rob has said about Robert Hunt from Louisiana. Rob even interviewed the guy. Super excited!

  400. Bayahawk says:

    Snacks Harrison and Brandon Mebane looking for work. Maybe a veteran signing instead?

  401. Troy says:

    I’m holding out hope that we end up trading up for one of the good remaining DTs…

  402. Freaking hate the Lewis pick….like this one random OL draft pick will somehow improve our running game and protect RW. OL usually takes time to develop and we need ‘D’ front seven or more importantly, front four to keep the linebackers clean and speed on the edge. Just another OL to compete with the other 12 lineman…Good grief! Madibuike, Davon Hamilton???? Push the center of the pocket to allow the edge to get home….F#%%$##

    • Volume12 says:

      Guards need way less time to step in and contribute than an offensive tackle.

      • I will grant you that for sure, but we need front 4 to 7 much more! Offense was 8th in the league with shit OL….we shall see….and as I type, there goes Madibuike! F…..

        • Rashi says:

          We have many more picks. And free agency is not over. Calm down. Let it play out.

          • Love your perspective Rashi, but we don’t have many more picks; we have 4. I do believe however, that there will be a plethora of UDFA and we are the best in farming that market. But seriously, my take is we are compiling all these OL due to the current Covid circumstances and unknown training camp scenarios and NFL experience trumps rookie OL. Defense is not only a need, but you can plug and play there more than any other position on both sides of the ball….and there is talent everywhere 40-150 so compile many picks as tightly together as possible. Too late, but never panic for me, I actually think LJ is going to step up big this year and Rasheem in year 3 is really going to show out. I certainly would have chosen Queen over Brooks for his 1.51 split and zone drop ability but cool with that still.

    • McZ says:

      Was bound to go 5th round, we snap him at #69.
      Are the Seahawks really that detached from league reality, that they actually really think, this massive reach is a good pick?

      • Jhams says:

        I’m sure you, rando in a comments section, have a better feel for the league than PCJS. Why won’t they turn to the real experts, people in comments sections?!?!

  403. TomLPDX says:

    Good night my fellow hawk fans. Another day…

  404. charlietheunicorn says:

    A bit surprising since Seattle had some nice DT prospects available

  405. Aaron says:

    Damien Lewis!!! Hell Yeah!!!

  406. Coleslaw says:

    I’d rather have too many OL than too little. Great pick! Great day for us. Wish we still had another pick though 😭

  407. Spireite_Seahawk says:

    Thought he was excellent in Homeland

  408. Trevor says:

    With Haynes, Jones and Lewis we should be set with 3 good young Guards going forward.

  409. Mark Souza says:

    He’s a good player, but he is the 12th guard on our current roster. 12!

  410. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    YAAASSSSS!!!! A road grader!! Carson and Penny will have some nice running lanes.

    • BoiseSeahawk says:

      You mean the hobbling injury lanes that will lead them to their final doom (Isaiah Simmons, Terrell Lewis, or Javon Kinlaw). Can’t believe we didn’t grab a RB yet when Moss was available.

  411. Supra22ssv says:

    Worst Seahawks draft ever

  412. Zeke says:

    LT Jones and versatile Cushenberry there. So many Guards

  413. Elizabeth Garza says:

    I like pick. I am surprised we didnt take one of the DL guys that are good value at that pick. I wonder if they believe in Christmas more than some might think or they like the value later on now that some are still there past what people thought. Anyways, personally, Im happy with the 3 guys thus far looking into the next decade.

  414. Cortez Kennedy says:

    I feel a lot better after the Taylor and Lewis picks. No way Hamilton makes it out of this round, but I have a small glimmer of hope that teams will continue to forget Bryan Edwards exists.

  415. Jones and Cush are falling for a reason

  416. CaptainJack says:

    Short stumpy but powerful. Chance Warmack, Nick Harris vibes. Will move people in the run game, which is good. Not a pass blocker especially against quicker dts, but can hold up against a Bull Rush. Solari obviously loved him.

    What really stumps me is why they even bothered bringing in so many guards, when they’ll have to cut most of them.

  417. Rob Staton says:

    Anyone who doesn’t like the Damien Lewis pick — what’s wrong with you?

    Great person. Great player.

    • CaptainJack says:

      I can get stuffed then. I like Damien Lewis, but I don’t see how our offseason moves set us up for drafting a guard this early.

    • HOUSE says:

      Competes to replace Fluker next year?

    • Absolute great player, just didnt think they would go straight guard early after signing a million of them.

    • Barry says:

      Lol I just commented below. I’m relieved beast of a man and character!

    • Zeke says:

      A LT with Josh Jones’ potential in the 3rd seems rare

    • McZ says:

      Too damn early.
      Pauline had him borderline draftable at #256, saw him ranked no better than #116.

    • Rowdy says:

      We just like avoiding are biggest needs to draft a position that’s the most loaded on the team. Why did we waste so much money on gaurds in the off-season.

    • Nothing, what’s wrong with you? Great person, great player who will compete for a spot in the rotation. We stockpiled OL good/bad/average but all with NFL experience and with this limited preseason and training camp, that was a good decision. Compiling as many picks as possible in the middle rounds and meeting the “compete” mantra in the front 4/7 for me would have been much more important. I’m sure Lewis is a great OL with great character, but not anywhere near the need as collapsing the pocket with Mudabuike and Hamilton still on the board…Greenard, Zuniga, Malik Harrison. Love your blog and opinion, but OL is not the need at this time unless trading back (which seems more difficult with this version of the virtual draft) can acquire 9-11 picks and then I was on board with McKivitz and others but NOT with 6 picks.

      • Rob Staton says:

        They got a top-50 player twenty picks later. It’s fine. He’s far better than some of those other players.

        • Top 50 player 20 picks later is like many of the players in the draft Rob; speculation. We need defense and Madibuike was in the same “top 50 20 later” category. Bottom line, if Lewis works out well and 2 or 3 others pan out on either side of the ball and the Seahawks find, as they always do, a few UDFA, we hit on 4-6 total, we’re good.

  418. I cant believe how much the Ravens are killing it.

  419. Barry says:

    Ok I can take a breath. I concur, Rob Lewis is a stud! Great dude, loved your interview with him.

  420. Cortez Kennedy says:

    Josh Jones doesn’t do much for me. I’d rather take Adeniji or Alex Taylor later

  421. Lewis gonna man up Kinlaw. Yes!!!

  422. GoHawksDani says:

    Love Lewis. Probably my second favorite OG in this draft.
    Huge dude and love how he finishes blocks. And not only he’s strong but he also moves well. Check out the senior bowl when he blocked beside his teammate Cushenberry. He climbs to the second level too!
    He might redshirt 2020 behind Fluker, but he’ll be 2021 starter for sure.
    Day2 was much better. Tbh I’d trade 2021 R1 for a 3rd and 4th right now.
    Madubuike, Hamilton, Hall, Robertson, Duvernay, Moss, Zuniga, and a ton more guys still in we could use.
    If we have a chance our day3 picks will be Joe Reed, Moss, Fotu

  423. Trevor says:

    How can the Hawks get back into the 3rd round and get Hamilton at DT.

  424. Gohawks5151 says:

    I’d like to see them come up and get Hamilton or Duvernay. I think they may not take a tackle. Someone mentioned a big Tackle for a small school last week. New ish to football. Essentially the next George Fant. Can’t remember the name. I bet he is an early UDFA call.

    • The draft is a crap shoot with some knowledge to support decisions so volume is always key IMO. So why not trade up twice and draft 4 picks every year? Please!

  425. CaptainJack says:

    Did we really use our third to get Taylor? Dang..

  426. Denver Hawker says:

    I think they’re done tonight. Can’t package two late 4’s for a 3rd unfortunately.

    Love the picks tonight. Wish they had one more with the depth left.

    Theme? Mature, development, high ceiling guys. Like the speed on D.

  427. mishima says:

    Haynes, Finney, Lewis going forward? Cut Britt and Fluker: Cap savings to re-sign Clowney?

  428. Sea Mode says:

    Listening to Darrell Taylor conference call:
    https://www.facebook.com/Seahawks/videos/3393091210723598/

  429. Volume12 says:

    I don’t get the apprehension either. Played in the most physical conference in CFB. He fits perfectly in the NFCW and for a team that wants the ball. He’s an a** kicker. Smashmouth.

  430. Scot04 says:

    If they can’t get Hamilton maybe we can get Fotu. Either would be nice fits. Obviously i prefer Hamilton though

  431. Kingdome1976 says:

    I’m just glad we got Taylor. Now let’s go get Clowney

  432. Rob Staton says:

    Wish they had a couple of picks left today.

    The DT’s and DE’s are still around.

    • HOUSE says:

      Yup… I don’t wanna watch knowing we don’t have picks, but also have nothing else to watch. lol

  433. DC says:

    Watching some tape on Taylor and WOW, is his get off and bend impressive! That’s the juice off the edge we sorely needed last year. Man, Clowney on one side and him on another, just need Reed to get back to 2018 vibes to push the pocket and the pass rush starting to look a lot better, then sprinkle in some Bruce and Mayowa as rotational guys. It’ll be good to have those 2 guys so Taylor doesn’t have to play 3 days right away.

    • DC says:

      And didn’t think Zuniga would last this long, would be a great pair to go w/ Taylor.

    • DC says:

      And he’s 267 lbs? With that kind of twitch/bend?!

      • Hawkdawg says:

        He has inconsistent tape, but when he’s good, he looks like a pro DE. His get-off is weirdly inconsistent–sometimes right on it, sometimes the slowest on the line. I do love the way he can bend and flatten, though. That is elite stuff, when he’s on it.

  434. JJ says:

    Fluker getting cut for room to sign clowney or Griffen?

  435. charlietheunicorn says:

    DAYUMMMMM

  436. Sea Mode says:

    There you go. Darrell Taylor’s dad was incarcerated when Darrell was young. Adversity: check.

    Darrell has a 1 year old son. Turns 2 in July. Is already a dad: check.

    • Volume12 says:

      They eat that s**t up.

      I always say it, but football is all about how you respond to adversity. If you’be already overcome or dealt with it in life, a game is small time.

    • Sea Mode says:

      His dad was incarcerated when he was in 8th grade.

      His mom passed away when he was a sophomore in HS (2013).

      Dang.

  437. Murphy says:

    Rib, the Damien Lewis pick makes me appreciate you and this site so much. I’m watching tv and every time Seattle picks they just go quiet and move on. It demonstrates a lack of preparedness on their part. They have packages on certain players but can’t provide at least basic commentary or footage on some really good prospects. Without your interviews and write ups I’d be losing it (ala the rest of the Seahawks social media fan base), instead I’m re listening to the Lewis interview and watching the Taylor highlights you posted. This place is the best!

  438. John_s says:

    Couple LSU guys Seattle may look at Charles and Lawrence. Pete loves Coach O and his input means lots to PC

  439. charlietheunicorn says:

    Got some trade juice going on all of a sudden

    :O

  440. drewdawg11 says:

    If you take a guard this early, you don’t expect to keep the veterans you have. Is fluker a goner? They brought Iupati back. They signed a bunch of journeymen. I would have preferred a tackle instead, but he’s a solid player. There must be a plan, right?

    • Rob Staton says:

      I have no issues with this pick.

      I think they got a top-50 player.

      • drewdawg11 says:

        Rob, what’s the plan? Who is making this roster? There had to be a reason to sign so many OL bodies? They passed on a dozen tackles so they believe they’re okay there, (they aren’t). Shell and an agin brown. I know he’s one of your favorites but he’s a guard on a team that didn’t truly need one, (but they like Phil Haynes). I watched him get demolished against brown, (I know it’s brown), but he’s not a top 50 player in this draft.

    • Coleslaw says:

      I think it opens up real competition. We have 2 veteran options returning and a bunch of young guys who could win starting jobs. I think the Warmack types are gone, they were hedges. Think iupati and fluker stick around unless they’re legitimately at the bottom of the depth chart

    • Todd says:

      Bunch of us wanted Raekwon Davis in the 2nd round. Damien Lewis HANDLED Raekwon last year.

  441. I wonder if they trade back into the third late.

  442. CaptainJack says:

    The major failure of this draft was leaving day three with zero interior dline reinforcements. lets hope there is someone in round 4

  443. Scot04 says:

    Overall a solid 3 first picks

  444. Eburgz says:

    I think we need to cast a wider net and disregard positional need next year. No disrespect to the blog or rob. Great draft for rob and and the blog IMO. I think we can improve in that a lot of valid ideas were dismissed.

    Would have loved for some of my favorites to get drafted but all these picks make lots of make sense and tick a lot of boxes. No big surprises though IMO outside of maybe brooks in R1.

    • Rob Staton says:

      No. You never cast out positional need.

      • charlietheunicorn says:

        LB wasn’t widely considered a need, but Seattle felt differently.
        DE was a need and they addressed it within the first 3 picks in the draft.

        The logic behind some of the guys or picks was good, we just don’t have as much information this year as in years past. To even have some of the guys in the conversation is a minor miracle.

        Thought Rob did better than most of the talking heads, even from jolly old England 😉

  445. Sea Mode says:

    Wow, Darrell Taylor actually visited the VMAC before everything closed down. They were in on this guy early.

  446. charlietheunicorn says:

    RB DT WR all seem like targets still…. perhaps a slight lean on C as well.

  447. ZHawk says:

    https://www.instagram.com/p/B-X42afJsB6/?igshid=1gbboyoam3vrw

    Was checking out Damien Lewis’ Instagram, and came across this. Note that he’s practicing snaps in the 4th and 5th clips..

  448. Coleslaw says:

    Theres still a bunch of OTs available. Adeniji, Bartch, Peart, Wanogho, A. Taylor, just to name a few

  449. Ravens with Dobbins, Queen, Madubuike and still have three picks left in the third. Watch out KC.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      KC is holding their own and might actually be slightly better this year with the offseason draft and other moves. Very elite offense…. and the defense is starting to reload.

    • dcd2 says:

      Both of those teams are killing it.

  450. I sure hope we have a nice plan (as usual) for UDFA, as this trading up for picks is something that doesn’t make sense to this fan who understands the crap shoot that is the NFL draft. Volume rules and we are giving volume away particularly when we could be stacking picks together in the middle rounds where there is talent at many positions!

  451. Volume12 says:

    The Baylor tape on Jordyn Brooks is super impressive. I’m trying to fund the OK St. game and TCU from ’18 where he makes some jaw dropping plays. Anyone know where to find those 2 games?

  452. STTBM says:

    Bummed we missed out on Hamilton and Madubuike AND Okwara: I liked all those guys and they seemed to fit Seattle’s needs and preferences. Oh well, a 19th lineman must be pretty important. Hope Lewis turns out…

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      That’s not completely fair, but I think you know that.

      • STTBM says:

        How is anything I said not fair? They could have had any of those guys, or Zuniga, but waited to take a lineman, and its simply the truth that he’s now the 19th Olineman under contract. They can do what they like, but to me the Slime has been neglected.

    • We didn’t miss out, we GAVE it away trading up and giving away picks to apparently pick an OL that everyone loves because he’s a road grader with character. OL will be a tough place to break into this year with limited preseason/training camp and speed on the DL is crucial in this window!

  453. MaxC14 says:

    I am curious to what peoples issues have been with Field Gulls, or certain people on Seahawks twitter, this may have been explained before, and I was just curious as I have seen comments made about FG and certain Seahawks Twitter personas, and I know there has been some contention there. I would appreciate anyone chiming in.

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      What is your interest in this?

    • STTBM says:

      From my perspective, Field gulls has crap writing and lazy analysis. Click bait “articles”. I pay no attention to Twitter…

    • Ishmael says:

      Can’t speak for everyone, but to my mind FG went downhill in a big way when Danny Kelly left. It’s become a chippy, smug, one-track community. Although I’m sure they’d say the same about here.

      Similarly, Seahawks Twitter in general has become dominated by self-styled analytics nerds who are more interested in playing fantasy cap manager than enjoying football.

  454. Sea Mode says:

    Adam Schefter
    @AdamSchefter
    ·8m

    Cleveland sent the No. 74 pick to New Orleans in exchange for the No. 88 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and the Saints’ 2021 third-rounder. The Browns also sent their 2020 seventh-round pick (244) to the Saints.

  455. Rob Staton says:

    Alex Mack could be available…

    • The question is do we need another interior lineman?

    • CaptainJack says:

      Please no.

    • dcd2 says:

      Falcons Center? For our 20th OL?

    • Sea Mode says:

      I don’t see it. They said the three they got were their 1,2,3 fits that they identified.

      Mack is 34 and Finney is 28. Is Mack that much better than Finney? We could also just keep Britt if they wanted.

      • Cameron says:

        Mack has been consistently a top 10 center. If he could keep it up for another 2-3 years, yes, that would be way better than Finney.

    • Cameron says:

      I’m all for giving him Britt’s money.

    • STTBM says:

      He won’t be cheap salary-wise. He likely costs more than Britt. And he’s not the player he once was. I can’t see Seattle getting him, but boy have I been wrong about their roster-building plans, so I obviously know nothing about what they might do…

  456. Pick 133 and 148 might get us in the very end of round three if they wanted?

  457. Logan Lynch says:

    Pete wants to play tough and fast on defense. He wants to run the ball. They drafted 2 explosive guys on defense and a mauling guard. This is on brand.

  458. Forty20 says:

    Lewis just told the Seattle press that he can play LG, RG and C in the conference call.

  459. Bill Washington says:

    Analysis – guards: who cares? Defense: we got a mongoose and a cobra snake. Two fastest guys after the QB in this draft. The tape doesn’t lie, and neither does Rob Staton. Forget the rankings, these two will eviscerate opponents backfields. Pitch a tent, Brooks and Taylor are setting up camp. There will be bloody bits of wool, 69r’ meat and redbird feathers all over the field 6 times a year. LLoyds of London insurance options for NFC west opponent QB’s just tripled, too late to protect them. The rest of the draft: let’s get some ace special-teamers. Really crazy guys like Joe Exotic, but 100 pounds heavier and without a limp who can who can deliver a ferocious hit. Time to make the other team’s offense cry again.

  460. Sea Mode says:

    Bye, bye, Zuniga. Jets.

    Guess they didn’t get enough of risky Florida pass rushers…

    • CaptainJack says:

      It’s funny because they took Jachai a year ago and he was a massive bust. Strange they’d take another Florida pass rusher Idk

  461. Volume12 says:

    There’s waaaay too many picks in between Seattle’s next pick. They have to be trying to get back in here. Your gonna miss out on too much talent.

  462. Trevor says:

    Still some good players on the board for the Hawks.

    Lawrence (DT / LSU)
    Moss ( RB / Utah)
    Davis (WR/ S Car)
    Fotu (DT/ Utah)
    Amid Robertson (CB/ LTech)

  463. CaptainJack says:

    If Lewis sees the field next season and plays well… slam dunk pick. I’m not kidding.
    But that’s contingent on cutting some dead weight. Time for fluker to hit the road I’m afraid.

  464. Raiders just hoarding receivers

  465. Volume12 says:

    Raiders are loaded at WR! Ruggs, Tyrell Williams, Bryan Edwards, Lynn Bowden. Jesus!

  466. Coleslaw says:

    Oh man. Bowden and Edward’s to Vegas…

  467. Sea Mode says:

    Great pick for the Raiders.

    3 WRs in first 3 rounds. Wow.

  468. David Ashton says:

    Great value for the Raiders with Bryan Edwards at 81!

  469. Volume12 says:

    Who was that DT from Wagner that Seattle met with? Any tape on him?

  470. Ashish says:

    Rob and Gang
    Amik cb, is there chance to get him?

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      The answer to that question is probably, is that CB need great enough to trade up and lose a couple more pics over?

      Too bad too. He is one of the last remaining favorites of mine.

  471. Im bored now as we dont have any picks.

    Hawks need to pick again today.

  474. Volume12 says:

    Pats trading out?

  475. charlietheunicorn says:

    Hawks will trade with the Bills in 2022 for Moss (Lynch 2.0), Bookit 😉

  476. Schism says:

    It’s a shame they couldn’t hang onto 101, bunch of good RT options still available, along with Duvernay, Bryce Hall, Amik Robertson…
