Second round

#33 Arizona — Byron Murphy (CB, Washington)
The best cornerback in the draft goes to Arizona. He goes back home and he’ll be excited about that. Considering they already have Budda Baker he’ll likely play outside corner. At his size and speed, I’ll take that matchup in the NFC West (even if I really like him as a player).

#34 Indianapolis — Rock Ya Sin (CB, Temple)
He’s tough and competitive. He’s a little bit undersized even if he has +32 inch arms. He’s been a big riser. The run on cornerbacks is on with DeAndre Baker, Byron Murphy and Rock Ya Sin going between #30-34.

#35 Jacksonville (via Oakland) — Jawaan Taylor (T, Florida)
The Jaguars trade up from #38. There were concerns about a knee issue with Taylor, leading to this fall. Many people mocked him to Jacksonville at #7. Taylor’s a bit overrated for me. Didn’t play his best until his last year and I’m not sure he’s as tough as some people are suggesting.

#36 San Francisco — Deebo Samuel (WR, South Carolina)
Samuel showed at the Senior Bowl that he knows how to get open. He has special teams value as a returner. He didn’t show much as a downfield threat but he competes. He’s stocky and explosive — a bit like a running back.

#37 Carolina (via Seattle) — Greg Little (T, Ole Miss)
The Panthers trade up from #47 so the Seahawks drop down ten spots and collect another third round pick (#77). Greg Little to me is best moving inside to guard. He’s a former big-time five-star recruit but his body type looks better suited to working inside. He had a poor 2018 season, a poor combine and he dropped well out of first round contention.

#38 Buffalo (via Oakland) — Cody Ford (T, Oklahoma)
The Raiders trade down for the second time in round two. Ford is great value here. Ian Rapoport suggested he fell because he thought he was better than he is. He has great feet for a guy with his size, he’s very stocky and powerful. Could be a big mauling guard yet his drop and kick-slide could keep him at tackle.


#39 Tampa Bay — Sean Bunting (CB, Central Michigan)
Bunting competes. Watch his game against Michigan State and you’ll see that. He had 31 3/4 inch arms but ran a great forty and is explosive. He’s been a big riser during the off-season and he ends up going before some of the bigger names.

#40 Oakland — Trayvon Mullen (CB, Clemson)
Mullen is a typical Clemson player. By that I mean during interviews he goes into great detail on scheme and concepts. They’re all so well coached and they recruit students of the game. He’s not big and long but he fits Oakland’s desire for accountable individuals.

#41 Denver — Dalton Risner (T, Kansas State)
In the first game I watched Risner during the college season, he was dumped flat on his back by a defensive lineman. That moment kind of stuck with me throughout the process. But he’s a great guy so hopefully he has a great career in Denver.

#42 Denver (via Cincinnati) — Drew Lock (QB, Missouri)
The Broncos move up ten spots (they gained an extra second rounder after trading down from #10 to #20 last night). They end up with back-to-back picks in round two. All the talk early in the process was John Elway loved Drew Lock. He dropped into round two and this is worth a flier here. It’s no gamble.

#43 Detroit — Jahlani Tavai (LB, Hawaii)
Tavai isn’t someone I spent much time on but I saw enough to think he’d be a great fit for the Patriots. Thus, it’s no surprise he’s ended up in Detroit with Matt Patricia.

#44 Green Bay — Elgton Jenkins (C, Mississippi State)
He had a good year in 2018 and then a good Senior Bowl. He looks the part. The only negative was his game against Quinnen Williams where he was destroyed. He was announced as a guard so clearly the Packers intend to shift his position. He can handle that. He’s got the frame for it.

#45 New England (via LA Rams) — Joejuan Williams (CB, Vanderbilt)
The Pats move up from #56 and the Rams have now dropped from #31 to #56 and are yet to make a pick. They’ve acquired two third rounders to move down. This is a good match. Williams is incredibly intelligent and tough. He’s battled adversity. He’s a 4.64 runner but Bill Belichick will put him in a role to succeed.

#46 Cleveland (via Indianapolis) — Greedy Williams (CB, LSU)
The Browns traded up three spots to move above the Seahawks. Was that deliberate? I can’t imagine the Seahawks were going to draft a corner with sub-32 inch arms who won’t tackle. This was probably just a deal the Browns wanted to make and in fairness — for their team it’s a value pick here. Browns fans will be excited.

#47 Seattle — Marquise Blair (S, Utah)
This guy is a Seahawks safety. He hits like an absolute hammer. He takes no prisoners. I’d been mocking him in round two practically throughout the process. He’s a 4.48 runner, not the biggest guy but he’ll bring competition at safety and he can play big nickel. If you like hitting you’ll like Blair.

#48 New Orleans (via Miami) — Erik McCoy (C, Texas A&M)
I love this pick. McCoy was the only center I saw in 2018 who battled Quinnen Williams and had some wins. He squares up and finishes. They lost Max Unger and the replacement could be one of the steals of day two.

#49 Indianapolis — Ben Banogu (EDGE, TCU)
Banogu’s a great athlete and has everything you want physically. The problem? He can’t rush the passer. He’s going to need coaching from scratch. I’d move him to linebacker because his best quality is read/react in space and closing speed.

#50 Minnesota — Irv Smith Jr (TE, Alabama)
The Vikings were said to be keying on the tight ends. Smith Jr is a big slot receiver. He’s not going to be a big blocker. He’s a guy who’s very fluid in finding the soft spot in a defense and making plays. He’s not that big or fast but he’s a natural receiver.

#51 Tennessee — A.J. Brown (WR, Ole Miss)
I’m not sure the Titans needed another medium-sized, lumbering receiver. They took one in the top-10 a couple of years ago. For me he’s a big slot who does his best work in the short range. It’s not bad value for what he is but Brown isn’t sudden or quick and that’s what seems to win these days (just look at the statistical top receivers).

#52 Cincinnati — Drew Sample (TE, Washington)
I need to go and find that guy who said in the comments section that Sample wouldn’t go as high as round three. Teams loved Sample. He was a boss at the Senior Bowl — whipping all the big name safety’s. He blocks, he’s athletic. He can be Zach Miller.

#53 Philadelphia — Miles Sanders (RB, Penn State)
I’m a big fan of Sanders’. He’s fast and explosive. He’s elusive. He finishes runs. When you put on the tape he just screams successful NFL runner. Philly loves to use multiple backs but I wouldn’t be shocked if he gets the bulk of the carries in 2019.

#54 Houston — Lonnie Johnson (CB, Kentucky)
Love Lonnie Johnson. He could be the top outside corner in this class. He’s big and long and looked like an ideal Seahawks corner. If only he’d lasted until the middle rounds. This was a big need for the Houston.

#55 Houston — Max Scharping (T, Northern Illinois)
There are people who said during the season that he was better than Eric Fisher. Clearly that didn’t prove true in terms of draft stock. The Texans needed tackle help and they take two small school guys. I hope they’re ready.

#56 Kansas City (via LA Rams) — Mecole Hardman (WR, Georgia)
The Rams trade down yet again. They’ve moved from #31 to #60 and are still yet to make a pick. The Chiefs moved up to get Mecole Hardman who’s a physical comp to Tyreek Hill. Clearly they just tried to replace Hill. Hardman has raw hands and catching technique but you can’t coach his speed.

#57 Philadelphia — J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (WR, Stanford)
Arcega-Whiteside can box-out and win contested catches. He shows strong hands in those situations and he’ll be a major red zone threat. Do they need Arcega-Whiteside and Alshon Jeffery? I like the fit but they do already have a similar player.

#58 Dallas — Trysten Hill (DT, UCF)
This is a great pick for the Cowboys (their first of the night). Nobody performed better in drills at the combine. He’s highly athletic and active. He was an explosive tester with great quickness. Love the pick for Dallas.

#59 Indianapolis — Parris Campbell (WR, Ohio State)
This is why the strength of the draft is day two. Getting Campbell at #59 is great value for the Colts, fresh after Trysten Hill coming off the board. Indy took Rock Ya Sin, Ben Banogu and Campbell with their three picks in round two. He’s a 4.31 runner and plays like a bigger Percy Harvin.

#60 LA Chargers — Nasir Adderley (S, Delaware)
I thought he was overhyped when he was getting first round talk. His highlight reel is great but the full tape was littered with inconsistencies. He didn’t run at the combine and didn’t make much of an impact in the Senior Bowl.

#61 LA Rams — Taylor Rapp (S, Washington)
Finally the Rams make a pick after trading down 30 spots. And it’s a familiar face. They take Taylor Rapp to play in the secondary. Rapp’s a good player and he’s never been a speed guy. His sub-4.00 short shuttle is top-level and that’s what he is — agile and tough.

#62 Arizona (via Miami) — Andy Isabella (WR, UMass)
The Dolphins have traded for Josh Rosen. The Cardinals drafted him at #10 a year ago. Now they’re giving him away for a late second round pick. There was talk a few weeks ago that the Cardinals loved Isabella. For me he needs to get into his release. He dances around too much. He has speed though.

#63 Kansas City — Juan Thornhill (S, Virginia)
He was announced as a DB and that’s because he’s a hybrid and will be used as such. I didn’t really like the top-40 talk. His tape was average. You can’t argue with his athletic profile though or his six interceptions in 2018.

#64 Seattle (via New England) — D.K. Metcalf (WR, Ole Mis)
The Seahawks trade up from #77 to get the final pick in round two and make a splash. Pete Carroll has wanted a big target since forever. Now they have a 6-3, 228lbs beast who runs a 4.33. He’s one dimensional. He’s a go-route specialist. The good news? That’s what Seattle wants. Deep shots. This is an exciting pick this late in the day. They gave up pick #118 (round four) to move up 13 spots.

Third round

#65 Arizona — Zach Allen (DE, Boston College)
Allen took over games in 2018 and had a great season. His short shuttle of 4.36 is fantastic for a player with his size. He had a disappointing Senior Bowl where he barely had an impact at all.

#66 Pittsburgh — Diontae Johnson (WR, Toledo)
Some people love Diontae Johnson. I personally didn’t spend much time watching him but the Steelers have done a terrific job in recent years finding big-time talent at receiver. He has a similar physical profile to Antonio Brown.

#67 San Francisco — Jalen Hurd (WR, Baylor)
I’m not a huge fan of Hurd’s. He’s mixed around, switched positions. He had that one play where he had the ball punched out on the goal line because he was sauntering in for a touchdown. I know a lot of other people like his upside though.

#68 New York Jets — Jachai Polite (EDGE, Florida)
Polite had a disaster of an off-season. He gained bad weight, ran poorly and complained about injuries. His stock collapsed from top-20 to round three. The Jets needed a pass rusher and take a chance here.

#69 Jacksonville — Josh Oliver (TE, San Jose State)
Some people in the league thought he was the best tight end in the draft. Oliver loves football. He was popular with team mates. He didn’t block and basically acted as a big slot. The Jaguars have been trying to solve their tight end problem for a while.

#70 LA Rams (via Tampa Bay) — Darrell Henderson (RB, Memphis)
The Rams trade up to go and land a running back. They clearly need some insurance for Todd Gurley based on what happened at the end of last season. He’s only 5-8 and 208lbs but he leaves a mark when he runs. He finishes runs.

#71 Denver — Dre’Mont Jones (DT, Ohio State)
He had a big impact in 2018. Every time you watched Ohio State he was making plays. The problem is he’s built like a specialist rusher. Can he play end and kick inside? Debatable. That likely limited his stock and it’s why he’s here in round three.

#72 Cincinnati — Germaine Pratt (LB, NC State)
They needed to add a linebacker. Pratt has extreme highs and lows on tape. He blows up screens like very few linebackers entering the league in recent memory. However, there are also snaps where he doesn’t read the play, gets hammered by a blocker and ends up flat on his back.

#73 Chicago (via New England) — David Montgomery (RB, Iowa State)
This is a shame for Mike Davis. Does he want to come back to Seattle? Montgomery got a lot of publicity during the season. I thought he looked ok. Nothing overly spectacular. He didn’t have a good combine at all.

#74 Buffalo — Devin Singletary (RB, Florida Atlantic)
Round three provides a run on running backs. Like Montgomery, I thought Singletary was pretty average. He also didn’t test well. Damien Harris is a better player for me. It’s a bit surprising he’s going after some of these other runners.

#75 Green Bay — Jace Sternberger (TE, Texas A&M)
I like this fit for Green Bay. Sternberger contorts his body to make difficult catches. He’s a reliable target. He’s very much a move-TE and not a Y-tight end. Aaron Rodgers should be able to take advantage of his ability to slip into soft zones and find space. He has a shot to be a high-target receiver.

This is not good news…

#76 Washington — Terry McLaurin (WR, Ohio State)
And just as I post that Schefter tweet above, McLaurin goes off the board. I thought McLaurin could be a potential Baldwin replacement in Seattle. He’s just a fantastic receiver — great speed, tenacity, willingness to do whatever it takes to win. This is a quality pick for the Redskins. He gets to catch passes from Dwayne Haskins again.

#77 New England — Chase Winovich (EDGE, Michigan)
This was so predictable. Winovich is a perfect fit for the way New England loves to operate on defense. You could see this coming a mile away. One of the New England coaches or Belichick was going to get him. He’s fast, agile and passionate but he lacked explosion and might need to play in space. He’ll be a great player for the Pats. Book it. It’s not just the hair that’s like Clay Matthews. His profile is very similar.

#78 Miami — Michael Deiter (G, Wisconsin)
The Dolphins had a need at guard and chose Deiter. His 2018 tape is good. He plays tough, had some great snaps in the running game and he looked like a day two pick. Then at the Senior Bowl he was awful. Which was weird. I’m surprised Dru Samia is still available.

#79 LA Rams — David Long (CB, Michigan)
The Rams had a need in the secondary and David Long is a bully despite his relatively small frame. This is a solid pick for the Rams. He doesn’t fit every scheme but he’s the type of player you’d rather not see playing in the NFC West.

#80 Cleveland — Sione Takitaki (LB, BYU)
Takitaki had mixed reviews. He was considered a big riser during draft season and many people in the media were talking up his rise. Plenty of people saw him as a priority UDFA though. He ran a decent 4.28 short shuttle and a 4.63 forty.

#81 Detroit (via Minnesota) — Will Harris (S, Boston College)
The Lions traded up here to get a player who was considered a big leader and an alpha. He had a really good combine. The one thing he doesn’t really do though is turn the ball over. It’s interesting that he’s gone before players like Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.

#82 Tennessee — Nate Davis (G, Charlotte)
Here’s another small school guy who, over the last few weeks, has been gaining some serious traction. He’s big and moves people in the running game. It’s hard to project these guys to the next level but what limited stuff I saw with Davis I liked.

#83 Pittsburgh — Justin Layne (CB, Michigan State)
There are so many good players still on the board and here’s one of them. He’s a converted receiver who sticks in coverage. He needs to do a better job playing the ball but he’s a classic Seahawks-style cornerback and this is good value for the Steelers.

#84 Kansas City — Khalen Saunders (DT, Western Illinois)
One of the stars at the Senior Bowl where he was just excellent in practise and then made big splash plays in the game. He’s a big defensive tackle who can do back flips. On tape he tired in games so you need to spell him initially but he has talent and upside.

#85 Baltimore — Jaylon Ferguson (DE, Louisiana Tech)
He’s incredibly raw but he got after the quarterback at LA Tech. He recorded 45 sacks in college and had a pressure percentage of 23.4% in 2018. His pro-day was a let down and he wasn’t permitted to work out at the combine. This is good value.

#86 Houston — Kahale Warring (TE, San Diego State)
Surprisingly we’ve not see a consistent run on tight ends. They’ve trickled out so far. I liked Warring on tape. He gets into his routes with smooth fluidity and made some big catches in key situations. He has a ton of potential. This is good value at a big position of need.

#87 New England — Damien Harris (RB, Alabama)
The draft doesn’t have to be difficult. The Pats get Chase Winovich and Damien Harris for great value. Both are ideal fits. This is why they win every year. Harris is explosive and an exceptional pass protector.

#88 Seattle (via Minnesota) — Cody Barton (LB, Utah)
The Seahawks have traded up for a second time, moving from #92 to #88 giving up pick #209 (sixth rounder). They select a linebacker Cody Barton. Why did they take him? Simple. He ran a 4.03 short shuttle and a 6.90 three-cone. They love those times at this position. He’s a converted safety and continues the theme of toughness.

#89 Indianapolis — Bobby Okereke (LB, Stanford)
Makes you wonder if the Seahawks jumped above the Colts to get Barton, considering they both took linebackers. Okereke has good length and his tape was pretty good. I thought he could’ve gone in the back-end of round two.

#90 Dallas — Connor McGovern (G, Penn State)
McGovern might have his issues in pass protection but as a run blocker he’s one of the best in this class. He’ll be Zeke Elliott’s best friend if he can win a starting role. He’s the antithesis of Connor Williams (they should’ve traded that pick last year for Earl Thomas).

#91 LA Chargers — Trey Pipkins (Sioux Falls)
I can’t tell you anything about Trey Pipkins other than Daniel Jeremiah says he had a good Shrine Game.

#92 New York Jets (via Minnesota) — Chuma Edoga (T, USC)
I like the Jets taking a chance on Edoga here. He was superb at the Senior Bowl. He dominated at left tackle and made a big impression. He’s been accused of pulling himself out of games at SoCal. With limited draft stock and a need at tackle, this is worth a flier by New York.

#93 Baltimore — Miles Boykin (WR, Notre Dame)
His combine was unexpectedly outstanding. He’s a complete athlete in terms of size, speed and explosive traits. However, his tape was pretty average. Part of that is the quarterback play. He has the physical tools.

#94 Tampa Bay — Jamel Dean (CB, Auburn)
He ran a 4.30 forty and jumped a 41-inch vertical. He has the physical profile but he’s suffered several knee injuries and that impacted his stock. I thought he’d last into day three but you can’t coach his speed.

#95 New York Giants — Oshane Ximines (EDGE, Old Dominion)
He’s high character and loves the game. His pressure percentage of 23.5% was second only to Josh Allen in college football last season. This is about the range he was expected to go.

#96 Buffalo — Dawson Knox (TE, Ole Miss)
I was hoping Knox might drop to Seattle in round four. He’s tough and loves to block. There’s no complaining about a lack of targets. He ran a sub-7.00 three cone. He can block. The tight end options are thinning out.

#97 LA Rams — Bobby Evans (T, Oklahoma)
I have to say this is a good pick for the Rams. Evans isn’t a flashy athlete but he just gets the job done. My guess is by second contract time, Evans has established himself enough to get a good deal.

#98 Quincy Williams (LB, Murray State)
Here’s another small school player that I haven’t studied. I’m not alone. Even Daniel Jeremiah says he hasn’t done a report on him on the NFL Network. Apparently he’s Quinnen Williams’ brother.

#99 Tampa Bay — Mike Edwards (S, Kentucky)
It’ll be interesting to see how he’s used — nickel or safety. He didn’t do any testing at the combine.

#100 Carolina — Will Grier (QB, West Virginia)
There were reports doing the rounds that the Panthers were looking at quarterbacks. Grier is very talented. He has mechanical issues that impact his arm strength at times but he’s an excellent downfield thrower and he plays with grit. It won’t be a shock if he ends up starting for Carolina down the line with Cam Newton’s injury concerns.

#101 New England — Yodny Cajuste (T, West Virginia)
I thought the Seahawks might consider him as depth and competition. He’s said to be an amazing athlete but he couldn’t test at the combine due to injury. He has major upside and this could end up being yet another wise, value pick for the Pats.

#102 Minnesota — Alexander Mattison (RB, Boise State)
I love Mattison’s running style. He’s so physical and finishes runs. He reminded me of Alex Collins without all the fumbles. I thought the Seahawks might look at him on day three.

That’s it for day two. The Seahawks will be busy tomorrow with three fourth round picks and two fifth rounders. Stay tuned to the blog I’ll have my day review posted in a few moments.

    • Hawkin says:

      Marquise Blair, really interesting and surprising pick. It’s the highest spot they’ve taken a DB since ET, he must be special. You guys know DBs are kind of what Carroll is known for developing, right?

      Interesting there hasn’t been a run on WR yet.

  2. Madmark says:

    OK Seattle trades down and grab’s Harris RB from Alabama. What do you think? Sorry I love the guy.

    • Cameron says:

      Can’t blame you there, Harris does look REALLY good. Would feel bad, though, putting him 3rd on the depth chart for a year or potentially more.

      • Madmark says:

        I understand I was so hoping last year he decided to go into the draft but he decided to go back to school. I wanted him for the C.J. prosise spot

  3. charlietheunicorn says:

    *draft pick value chart is pulled up on the computer screen*

  6. Volume12 says:

    Eddie George! My brothers all time favorite CFB player.

  7. Rik says:

    Campbell or Trysten Hill in the 2nd?

  13. charlietheunicorn says:

    Colts going WR, very likely

  14. KD says:

    Is anyone else annoyed, in general, with these guest presenters announcing the pick? Just slows everything down, and i couldn’t care less who is announcing the pick.

  15. charlietheunicorn says:

    Reggie Wayne… LMFAO

  16. Volume12 says:

    Reggie with the shade. Slay ’em king!

  17. CaptainJack says:

  18. RobeND says:

    I am thnking Paris this pick if available. Too much speed to ignore.

  19. CaptainJack says:

    Jawaan Taylor to the jaguars.

    Taking the local man with major medical flags

  20. Volume12 says:

    Seattle gonna go DB with the run on ’em?

    Take a WR?

    Keep adding to the D-line or something outta left field?

  21. SoCal12 says:

    Looks like a run on DBs is happening. Maybe we go nickle/safety first?

    Huskys keep getting picked up by NFC West rivals. This sucks lol.

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      Nope, it will just make the trade down the more valuable as someone else wants to get a DB before they’re gone.

  22. charlietheunicorn says:

    6 WRs still on the board that could be impact players at 37

    trade back very likely.

  23. CaptainJack says:

    Metcalf to niners?

  24. John_s says:

    JS with the trade card on Seahawks cam.

  25. CaptainJack says:

    Hawks trade down?

  26. Trevor says:

    I think Samuel, Campbell or Metcalf to SF.

  27. Volume12 says:

    9ers gotta go WR.

  28. Volume12 says:

    Love that pick.

  29. CaptainJack says:

    Round 2 is my favorite round.

    Always has been.

  30. DC says:

    If we are going EDGE or DB it seems like we could nickel & dime trade backs for a while. Lots of options left.

  31. charlietheunicorn says:

    Panthers trade

  32. Volume12 says:

    Hahaha! OFC!

  33. SoCal12 says:

    Yup trade down. Still lots of guys left.

  34. JohnH says:

    Panthers traded for 37, what did we get?

  35. CaptainJack says:

    Winovich? Thornhill? Furguson? Gardner-Johnson?

  36. MJL says:

    trade with Carolina..

  37. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    CALLED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. chris banta says:

    10 spots is a big drop!

  39. MJL says:

    we got their #47

  40. Seanzpsi says:

    Seahawks get 47 and 77!!!!

  41. chris banta says:

    we got a 3rd round pick

  42. charlietheunicorn says:

    Raiders trade pick… :O

  43. DC says:

    Question answered Rik… Yes!

  44. MJL says:

    and their 3rd round (#14)

  45. James Kupihea says:

    Man…I hope we trade back into the second at least once…

  46. JohnH says:

    Panthers took Greg Little.

    Still don’t know what we got for 37.

  47. Trevor says:

    I thought the Hawks would end up with 4 picks tonight and I still do.

  48. CaptainJack says:

    Wow, picked up another third.

    Greg little to panthers. Probably a future guard. I was meh on him. He’s ok.

  49. MJL says:

    love that trade…

  50. Cameron says:

    Astounding value in the trade with the Panthers! Gave up 100 points in draft capital moving down 10 spots, got 205 points back in the #77 pick!

  51. CaptainJack says:

    Lots of players going that I have no interest in.

    Feels good.

  52. Finally got another third rounder.

  53. Trevor says:

    37 for 47/77 is the best trade back JS has done so far this draft.

    Now we just need one trade up into the early 3rd using one of our 4th and the 2nd we got from KC next year.

    4 picks between 47-93 would be sweet.

  54. Steve Nelsen says:

    Trade down ten spots in the second round for an extra third!? Yes, please. Thank you Carolina.

  55. Rob Staton says:

    What an outstanding trade.

    #77 to move down ten spots.

    Brilliant start to day two.

  56. Where is the best spot to find out details of the pick trades? What did Seattle get for dropping 10 spots?

  57. CaptainJack says:

    The Samuel pick indicates to me that San Fran doesn’t want Pettis returning kicks.

  58. Paul Cook says:

    Okay, I’m done with the frigging trade-downs, although this seems a good one. Any other trade is a trade up into the 3rd round again.

  59. Trade chart value:

    Pick 37 worth: 162

    Pick 47 and 77 worth: 184

    Not sure if we gave them something back.

  60. CaptainJack says:

    Cody ford to bills.

    Awesome. One of the most overrated dudes in this draft.

  61. SoCal12 says:

    Things are breaking our way. OL coming off the board, leaving lots of options for us.

  62. Hawkin says:

    WOW. We could get a third in the second round but only two 4ths in the first. Who woulda thought? GREAT VALUE

  63. charlietheunicorn says:

    Here is what Seattle has right now in 2019

  64. neil says:

    Sorry, I don’t get it. I understand yesterdays moves, going from 5 picks to 9, but 9 should have been sufficient for his draft. I realize they do not want to pay 1st and 2nd round rookie contracts, but at some point you have to start picking quality players for the good of the team and fans.

    • Volume12 says:

      They fleeced Carolina man

    • Trevor says:

      Who has gone so far tonight Neil that you really think the Hawks should have taken?

      • neil says:

        The best player available at a position of need. Safety, Corner, another defensive or offensive lineman, Tight end Receiver !!

    • SoCal12 says:

      None of these guys coming off the board are guys we need. Might as well get more picks.

      • Trevor says:


        • Don says:

          That is not how it works! How many times do you play Russian roulette before you lose? They could have lost their target last night by trading down and settled for Collier. We will never know.

          Every player that has ever been picked in history was the one the GM wanted from the beginning.

      • neil says:

        What you just said doesn’t make much sense. The players coming off the board we don’t need, well their are plenty of players on the board we do need. I guess getting the best player available at a position of need is passe.

    • MJL says:

      you’re gambling you can move down ten picks..get the guy you wanted anyways..and add a 3rd round pick..

    • Cameron says:

      Adding capital that we can trade to move up later. Will be shocked if we don’t move up from one of our 4th rounders into the 3rd.

  65. Trevor says:

    #47 seems about the perfect spot to take Trysten Hill, Juan Thornhill or Terry Mclaurin.

  66. Volume12 says:

    Teams have gone over speed this draft and while the NFL is always desperate for O-lineman, three teams trading up for that position kinda proves it.

  67. CaptainJack says:

    Bunting is a guy I didn’t really look at. Anyone have any takes?

  68. CaptainJack says:

    Woohooo I can’t wait to see who the raiders draft here!!

  69. Trevor says:

    I had Justin Layne as CB #1 on my board I dont think the Hawks go outside CB early but I am suprised he is still on the board.

    • Volume12 says:

      I really, really like Lane. He’s a big of a project though. Which has never scared a team like Seattle. Not saying they’ll take him, but I know what I mean.

      • Volume12 says:

        * u know

      • Trevor says:

        I do, he is absolutely a project and any DB the Hawks take is going to get coached up in Petes technique anyways. I just think physically he is the ideal Hawks CB and more athletic than anyone they have had at outside CB.

  70. charlietheunicorn says:

    #47 430 + #77 205

    for #37 530

    That is roughly a free 4th round pick of value in the trade

  71. SoCal12 says:

    That commercial with Fitz congratulating DK feels really awkward right now.

  72. DC says:

    Destiny demands that we get Dallas’ 2nd round pick. One more trade down/up. #47 & #132 for Dallas’ #57 & #90.

    Sure it won’t happen but I want those picks.

  73. Volume12 says:


  74. SoCal12 says:

    Denvers gotta pick Lock now right?

  75. Troy says:

    Kudos to Rob, Greedy is still sitting while many other CBs have been drafted. Rob was always cold on Greedy and looks like NFL GMs are as well!

  76. DC says:

    A week-ish ago we had 4 picks in this draft. Incredible. I acknowledge that the cost of adding that big chip was high but it sure makes the draft a lot more fun.

  77. Paul Cook says:

    All this tells me is that there’s nobody the Hawks want that badly in this range, but rather have a handful of players that they like.

  78. charlietheunicorn says:

    Seattle making shrewd moves so far

  79. Coleslaw says:

    We should trade down again with NE to 56 for 97 or 101.

  80. CaptainJack says:

    Here comes Drew Lock

  81. SoCal12 says:

    Oof. Not even Elway likes Lock it seems.

  82. Volume12 says:

    JS and PC set up the next FO/coaching staff if they ain’t around after 2021 incredibly well. Gifted ’em man.

    2019 and 2020 combined picks:

  83. Spireite_Seahawk says:

    Is it just me or is Risner a holding machine?

  84. RobeND says:

    I am a little stunned because we really have not lost anyone we really coveted with all this trading down. We saved ourselves a ton of money.

  85. Volume12 says:

    Do the guys they show sitting at home and wherever else have every teams hat? If not, there was a Seattle hat in front of Greedy.

  86. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    LMFAO!!!! That looks so fake!!!!

  87. CaptainJack says:

    No one has gone yet that I’d like the Seahawks to draft.

    Such an awesome feeling.

  88. DC says:

    What’s the feeling on Aaron Rodgers regression/decline last season? Anomaly or permenant? I would find it humorous if they finally put a defense together for him and it’s a day late and a dollar short. He could use a good running game to balance things out too.

  89. charlietheunicorn says:

    Called it

  90. HawksBill says:

    Is Drew Lock going to end up the next Seahawk backup QB in a few years?

  91. Volume12 says:

    So excited to watch for big, white generic QB #1025

  92. SoCal12 says:

    There it is. Spoke too soon.

  93. MJL says:

    c’mon need a backup qb too!!

  94. CaptainJack says:

    First big WHO? Pick of the draft for me

  95. charlietheunicorn says:

    There goes a LB a few of you guys really liked

  96. HawksBill says:

    wow, Tavai went early

  97. Coach says:

    Uh oh… Will Lions take Winovich?

  98. H says:

    Lock was my QB #2, no one other than Kyler is all that exciting. Lock has at least got them traits. Fantastic value back here.

  99. Cameron says:

    Just wondering, if Grier happens to still be there in round 3, do we consider it? Seems like good value and fit at that point.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      I think he is a 4th round target…. since they have plenty of picks that round

  100. Volume12 says:

    Just me, or are the rest of y’all happy with whose off the board so far?

  101. Coleslaw says:

    This is lit. I love this draft.

  102. Edgar says:

    Lions get the ESPN shaft when they had to run their Lock material and passright by their pick

  103. JC3 says:

    I think they want to get back to smash mouth and next pick is Erik McCoy.

  104. Rik says:

    Pete is looking pretty happy right now in the draft room. He’s smiling and spinning in his big chair.

  105. Trevor says:

    Wow not one player gone so far tonight that I really wanted to the Hawks.

    Really worried that the Hawks just moved up to take Trysten Hill. The Pats always seem to take a guy I want for the Hawks.

  106. charlietheunicorn says:

    Hated Patriots on the clock >.>

  107. CaptainJack says:

    Pats take Winovich here right?

  108. MJL says:

    whoa..Pats snuck in here

  109. charlietheunicorn says:

    irv smith? Pats?

  110. CaptainJack says:

    Who the bleep is JoeJuan Williams

    Teams reaching for DBs now

  111. MJL says:

    Houston has two 2’s and a three..maybe they’ll want to move up

  112. Rik says:

    The war room reacted to the Pat’s pick. Schneider went into a huddle with 4 others right afterward.

  113. CaptainJack says:

    Metcalf still on the board…

  114. Rob Staton says:

    So much talent left on the board.

    Trade down again.

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      Exactly perfect. All the guys we wonder still there. This is working out great for us right now.

  115. Volume12 says:

    Cleveland going DB or adding even more weapons?

  116. DC says:

    We still have our pick of the LEO candidates.

  117. Rob Staton says:

    Cleveland traded above Seattle.

  118. Ely says:

    Deandre Walker, Trystan Hill or Winovich please! 🙏🏼

  119. chris banta says:

    hawks clapping

  120. CaptainJack says:

    I think we wanted Joejuan Williams.

    Well I think we trade down again.

  121. RobeND says:

    We have waited long enough. Winovich is around. Paris Campbell is around. Julian Love, ans some other DBs are around. Time to pull the trigger.

  122. CaptainJack says:

    The run on DBs has been INSANE

  123. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Patience is how you win this game. I’d be thrilled if they traded again so many guys we want are all still there

  124. charlietheunicorn says:

    Time for commercial break, Seattle is picking :O

  125. tgrans says:

    How about Hawks trading with Texans so they can move up and grab Irv Smith Jr.

    #47 + #124 + #132 for #54 and #86

  126. regan sayer says:

    Pick is in! Interesting two teams jumped in front of us to pick huge corners .

  127. SoCal12 says:

    Who’s the guy here?

  128. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    My gut is telling me Parris Campbell at 47

  129. CaptainJack says:

    I think teams thought Seattle was looking to draft a long hence all the trade ups.
    Being tall ain’t all that.

  130. Trevor says:

    I think the Hawks have to be ecstatic I bet their board is almost untouched so far tonight

  131. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    Chase Winovich! Pleaseeeeee

  132. charlietheunicorn says:


  133. Volume12 says:

    There’s their DB

  134. KD says:

    WOW! Didn’t see that coming

  135. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    Who the fuck is Marquise Blair?????????

  136. HawksBill says:

    Good pick, hits like Kam….but sometimes too high.

  137. CaptainJack says:

    What the bleep!

    I absolutely hate this pick.

  138. Rik says:

    Welp, that’s a surprise. Hope we don’t miss out on WR.

  139. Volume12 says:

    Skinny, but he’s a bad a**. Was ejected from multiple games. Head hunter.

  140. Lupe Green says:

    Haha, you gotta love it. Never fails!

  141. charlietheunicorn says:

    Solid pick for Saints. Plug and Play at position of need.

  142. RobeND says:

    Hmmm. Uh great. I just prefer players I have actually heard of.

  143. Paul Cook says:

    This guy I know. He’s a player, and he can lay the lumber. I dig it.

  144. SoCal12 says:

    I like the highlights. Seems to be a hard hitter.

  145. WALL UP says:

    Physicality…The Hawks are getting back to their roots.

  146. MJL says:

    would’ve made a nice 4th rounder…

  147. charlietheunicorn says:

    Funs over, about 1.5 hours until next pick : /

  148. Trevor says:

    The Hawks are definitely trying to become the bully on both sides of the ball.

    Hawks fans will hate that pick until they see Blair lighting guys up on Sundays. He is a bad bad man. There is no nastier or more aggressive player in the draft.

  149. chris banta says:

    this was brock huards guy!

  150. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Did not see that coming. Isn’t that the earliest they’ve drafted the secondary since ET3? Not hard to see why in retrospect. Just surprised they went DB over WR

  151. CaptainJack says:

    It’s funny, I mocked him too Seattle several times.

    But in round 4.

    I also called out DB as the first pick today.

    But I expected Thornhill or Gardner-Johnson.

    If that’s their guy, that’s their guy.

  152. Volume12 says:

    Didn’t get the players right, in my mock, but I got the positions. 5-tech and FS w/versatility.

  153. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    ROBBBBBBB!!!!!! Please explain to me why we took this pick so I can feel better about my life for next 48 hours!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭

    • troy says:

      please tell me how to FEEL

    • Aaron says:

      I’m not Rob, but Blair is gonna compete at FS and NB most likely. He’s aggressive and brings a thump, something missing for a while from this defense. He’s also a great tackler, something a guy like Coleman wasn’t. I don’t love the pick, but mostly because I don’t know the guy. I’ll wait to see what PCJS have to say.

  154. Ishmael says:

    Blair is the kid with all the targeting penalties right? Angry, angry, man. Plays as aggro as anyone I’ve seen this year. Not super disciplined but he wants to hurt people. Seahawks trying to bring the boom back in a big way. No idea what his coverage chops are like, but I’d say they just wanted a headhunter to scare the shit out of anyone going over the middle again

  155. neil says:

    A pick at #47 Thank you!!

  156. Madmark says:

    Always with the negative vibes marty!

  157. Trevor says:

    I have heard Brock Huard talking about Blair a ton. He loved him. Rob has talked about him quite a bit as well and seemed to really like him. All I know is that whenever I saw him he was hammering someone.

  158. Bigten says:

    With all the safeties left on the board, disappointed. I don’t dislike Blair, but just liked others for the hawks still on the board…

  159. CaptainJack says:

    Trend this draft:

    Not looking for the sexy names.

    Looking for the players who love football and want to hit people, hard.

    Still wanting to win by being more physical.

  160. Rokas says:

    Awesome pick. We need some boom.

  161. Volume12 says:

    The Colts are gonna be a SB contender in a year or two. Guarantee it.

  162. Dawgma says:

    Okay with that. Felt like that trade back paid off, didn’t get their guy scooped this time and I’m never going to argue with a physical safety with range.

  163. Paul Cook says:

    If you’re a Husky/Pac12 fan, you know this guy. Utah is always up there on D, and this guy was a big reason why they were so of late. This guy hits. He’s coming to play. We’ll see how it runs out. You never know.

  164. CaptainJack says:

    My favorite pick of round two is McCoy to the saints.

  165. SoCal12 says:

    So what do you guys think is next up for us? WR or DT or Edge?

  166. CaptainJack says:

    Blair just wants to hurt people.
    This is a culture pick.

    Not sure on where he plays in our defense though.

  167. John_s says:

    With the first two picks, Seattle picked two pissed off bad ass mofos. Get ready for Seattle to get back to being the bully on the block because that’s what these two picks represent

  168. Volume12 says:

    For those wondering about his discipline or lack thereof? That can be taught guys. Earl was the same way. You can’t teach his mentality. You either like contact or you dont.

    • Trevor says:

      He does’t like contact Vol he likes extremely violent collisions 🙂

    • SoCal12 says:

      If this guy can lay down the smack like Kam on Vernon or ET on Gronk then I’m all aboard the Blair Train.

  169. Madmark says:

    I think was what everyone forgets you guy in a amazing group this year and you get a 77 pick this is great if hills there I think its a win, win.

  170. Trevor says:

    Would love to see the Hawks use one of their 4th round picks and the 2nd round pick from the Chiefs to move up into the late 2nd or early 3rd the range they nailed the Clark and Locket picks.

  171. Producehawk says:

    He’s a bad mother…….shut you mouth!

  172. Volume12 says:

    Pete got his pet! That’s why he was so excited.

  173. HawksBill says:

    Some here don’t know who Blair is but i know Myles Gaskin does.

  174. Don says:

    Somehow someway they need to move up and take some quality guys. The WR’s will be going soon.

  175. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Carl Eller was a BAMF. Purple people eater indeed

  176. ZB says:

    I’m starting to think Rob should spend more time looking at the outliers of the draft. I don’t remember reading much of anything about these 2 guys…..Maybe some passing remarks but I can’t seem to remember at the moment.

    Rob, believe me when I say I’m not taking a shot at you in any way but it sure seems like the Hawks pick guys we never think or read of. Maybe next year you could do like a series on guys that have some serious traits or upside that the hawks might be looking at.

    • Volume12 says:

      Man, what?

    • mishima says:

      Tell me you’re new here.

    • Troy says:

      The disrespect is real, he mentioned Collier many times as a Hawk target

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      You might just need to do a better job keeping up with the information on the site.

      • ZB says:

        Wow….. didn’t expect that response. Some faithful members here. I joined the blog about a month ago but have been reading articles a few times a week for about 8 years or so. I don’t remember reading an article about Blair or Collier but I could be wrong.

  177. Volume12 says:

    God damn. Pete with the clues and they were obvious as f***. Or were they? Who knows.

    ‘Lean on Me’ lyric: just CA/OLL on me brother….
    LJ COLLier

    Marvin Gaye clue: MAR-vin Gaye
    MARquise Blair

  178. Gohawks5151 says:

    Two needs down. He is a great player and fits both culture and need. Clay for Pete to mold. He may not be who you wanted but let your draft crush go and if he ends up being drafted then it was meant to be

    • MJL says:

      would have liked to trade down one more time..about 10 spots..and then if he’s your guy go get him..

  179. Volume12 says:

    They got Tedric who has ball skills lacks aggression and Blair who doesn’t track of locate well but loves to pay the wood. Nice combo. They’ll feed off each other.

    • mishima says:

      With McDougald, Hill, Blair, Thompson might be odd man out.

    • Kyle says:

      I don’t know… that reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Lisa told Homer that she made fish sticks that were burned on the outside and frozen on the inside so it balanced each other out…

      If you can splice Tedric and Blair into one, like in the movie The Fly, that’s one thing, but if Blair truly doesn’t track well that could be an issue.

  180. David Ashton says:

    What did we get from the trade down from 37. Bit late to the party on here as sharing today with friends.

  181. CaptainJack says:

    Bengals made a pick there.

    Sample is good.

  182. Justin Lu says:

    There goes Sample. Good pickup for the Bengals.

  183. H says:

    Gonna have to do some work on this pick, annoyed at myself for overlooking a hard hitting, 4.4 running safety.

    Gotta go back to the DL next yeah? Still plenty of good options.

  184. Madmark says:

    what a run they definitely got there due with that 2nd round pick for a 3rd pic. Without out it you could very well call it a night till tomorrow. Love the pick and the 3rd round pick.

  185. Coleslaw says:

    Joe Mixon is gonna run wild this year.

  186. Trevor says:

    Pete start to rebuild the Hawks culture and being the bully on both sides of the ball last year with the offense. They fixed the run game and brought in guys like Fluker and Dissly.

    This year he year his goal is clearly to bring the boom back to the defense. They picked the baddest DE and Safety in the draft with their first two picks.

    Love it!

  187. Troy says:

    ROB! This is a supposed leak of the Hawks draft board and who they wanted to come away with, what do you think?

    LJ Collier (DL / TCU)
    Parris Campbell (WR / Ohio State)
    Marquise Bell (DB / Utah)
    John Ursua (WR/ Hawaii)
    Juan Thornhill (DB / Virginia)
    Darwin Thompson (RB /Utah State)
    Derek Thomas (CB / Baylor)
    Jace Sternberger (TE / Texas A&M)
    Darnell Savage (DB / Maryland)
    Anthony Nelson (DE / Iowa)
    Scott Miller (WR / Bowling Green)
    Donnie Lewis (CB / Tulane)
    Demetrius Knox (OL / Ohio State)
    Phil Haynes (OL / Wake Forest)
    Jalen Harvey (DB / Arizona State)
    Chase Hansen (LB / Utah)
    Mike Edwards (DB / Kentucky)
    Chandler Cox (FB / Auburn)

    • CaptainJack says:

      I think it’s rubbish

    • RobeND says:

      No pass rush specialist to replace Clark!

      Oh, I saw mention of a player that I would like in round 5 who is a pass rush specialist. Porter Gustin. I want two Gustin types. One might become Clark like for less than 20m a year.

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      Dumpster data.

      • Troy says:

        So, the person that posted this successfully predicted their first two pics. That is literally the opposite of dumpster data. Appreciate your take tho…

        • Hawktalker#1 says:

          A broken clock is correct twice today. The bottom half of that list looks very suspect. This is still my opinion. Sorry if you don’t like it.

          • Troy says:

            Well would you look at that…4 correct players taken. Pretty much the exact opposite of garbage data. Must be a damn good broken clock!

    • AlaskaHawk says:

      It’s missing Dexter Lawrence! 🙂

  188. RobeND says:

    So we satisfied the need for a run stuffing SDE that can pressure the QB.. We satisfied the need for a thumper at safety. The next need is a target for Wilson or a pass rush spwcialist like Winovich I am guessing.

  189. H says:

    So how low does DK go? Taking a big huge L for telling Rob I can’t see him falling out of the first round.

  190. Casey says:

    So let me see if I get this right on net (without officially penciling it all out)…
    Trade Clark, move down a few spots in the 1st and 3rd.
    Get a 2nd, 3rd, 3x 4th rounders, a 5th, and a 2nd next year. Is that right?

  191. charlietheunicorn says:

    23 picks to go : /

  192. King_Rajesh says:


    You don’t need all those 4th rounders. Get back up there and get a STUD.

    • Justin Lu says:

      Who’s left that’s a stud? Everyone left is going to at least take some time to coach.

    • RealRhino2 says:

      This is what I would do. Parris Campbell is pretty electric in space, runs away from guys. Dane Brugler had him as WR4, said saw him running much better downfield routes and tracking the ball downfield much better than you saw on OSU game film.

    • Troy says:

      I’m with you, I hope they would package a pick or two and get Parris or McLaurin both seem like great fits.

  193. BobbyK says:

    Excited they were able to get a DB and add a 3rd round pick to boot!

    More defenders on the way tonight? I’m better at least one more defender. And two defenders if a WR isn’t taken.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I’m all in on a big defensive class. Load up the D!

      • BobbyK says:

        Yep. I’m all for either scenario… defender and defender in the third or a combination of WR and defender in the third. Can’t wait for this next pick. What a good trade to be able to get a DB and add a 3rd round pick, too (before the one were already had!).

  194. Volume12 says:

    So Cleveland did jump Seattle because they went DB.

  195. Trevor says:

    Metcalf, Campbell and McLaurin all still on the board wow

  196. drewdawg11 says:

    I watched this guy play a bunch. Not saying he’s a bad player, but in round two? There were better guys available for what they’ll ask him to do. Oh well. I really can’t get excited about this guy for as early as we took him. That’s my gripe. Taking a round 4 player, who can’t take the ball away, this early.

  197. McZ says:

    Horrible. This smells like a McDowell #2 pick. Besides a full round of overpay at minimum, he’s not a complete player, has short arms, and there is nothing to really like beyond offering some hard play.

    • CaptainJack says:

      Trust me, I don’t like it either.

      But I get it. Culture pick.

    • teejmo says:

      Um, McDowell was a physical marvel. On talent alone, the guy was probably a top ten pick; the question with him was whether he had football on the mind. I don’t think that’s really the case with Blair.

  198. GoHawksDani says:

    Not sure about Blair. He’s not a cover guy, I don’t think he’s natural position will be nCB. He could play SS or big nickel, but I don’t think this was a need. He has moderate ball skills and could draw a ton of penalties. I’m not feeling it. His absolute ceiling could be Kam, but he’s much smaller. If he can level up quick in coverage and footwork, press stuff He could be interesting. A nickel who can bring the boom for horizontal plays (sweeps, screens) and valuable vs the run. But I want more pdef and INTs from him, and be much more disciplined. I feel Thornhill or CGJ would have been a better fit based on need and experience, but he can be interesting.

  199. CaptainJack says:

    Chiefs made a good pick there

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      They need some skill position help… big time now… since they lost the RB and possibly the Hill at WR for 2019….

  200. King_Rajesh says:

    I’d love if we could come away with Jalen Hurd sometime this draft, my 2019 SLEEPER STUD of the draft.

    Former RB, 6’5, 226, 32″ arms, 4.4 speed… Gimme gimme gimme.

  201. CaptainJack says:

    Run at WR has begun

  202. Hank says:


    You know the Seahawks draft tendencies like no other. Thank you for your work. Keep it up!

  203. Rik says:

    Dang cowboys!

  204. HawksBill says:

    Oops, Pete looked shocked and disappointed at the Hill pick.

  205. HawkfaninMT says:

    Seems like Nickel Back is still a need? Not seeing a lot of sites with overly positive reviews of Marquise Blair. Of course trust the FO that they know what their doing… but seems like this is strictly a pick for Safety, no?

  206. drewdawg11 says:

    I just hope that we don’t miss out. I need a pick for which I can feel good about. I’m not usually a doom and gloom draft guy, but last year I loved our draft. This year I’m left wondering why.

  207. Chawk Talker Eric says:

    Nice pick for Big D

  208. Shadow says:

    Sigh… bad enough Hill went to another team, but why did it have to be the Cowboys???

  209. charlietheunicorn says:

    Damn you DALLAS.. DAYUM Youuuuuuuuuuuuu

  210. King_Rajesh says:

    Campbell gone. All the good WRs are going to go before we pick again.


  211. charlietheunicorn says:


  212. Cameron says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! CAAAAMPBELL….. My draft crush ends in shattered dreams…

  213. Trevor says:

    I truly hate the Cowboys more than any team in the NFC West even. I think Hill was absolutely a HAwks target.

  214. Ishmael says:

    More people hating the pick because they don’t know the name…

    Reckon Carroll has absolutely hated teams like the Rams and Chargers being able to cruise around running a billion different crossing routes and dinky little screens. Go get an absolute ass-kicker who’s going to put the fear of good into anyone going over the middle.

    This is a big culture-setting draft. Hard men who aren’t ever going to back down. Odds on Blair getting ejected for trying to knock Kyler Murray’s head off the first time he sees him?

    • MJL says:

      with Adderley and Thornhill still on the board though..seems like a stretch taking him where we did

      • CaptainJack says:

        Adderly played at Delaware.

        I liked Thornhill for his crazy athleticism, but I was not sure about toughness.

        Not saying I would have taking Blair, but I see what the Hawks were thinking.

        Blair isn’t afraid to get fined for taking your blasted head off. That’s going to scare some wideouts.

    • CaptainJack says:

      This is a good take.

      Like it or not, Pete doesn’t give a flying F*&% about who the fans want him to draft. He’s going to take his guys.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Yes, well said.

  215. JohnH says:

    Dang, I loved Hill and liked Campbell a lot. Hope Blair is worth it.

  216. Rik says:

    Our guys are coming off the board now. I don’t understand picking Blair over Hill or Campbell. Hope we dont lose more of our faves.

    • CaptainJack says:

      OUR faves

      not necessarily the seahawk’s faves

      Hill was weird. Athletic but his personality had major red flags.

  217. RokS says:

    Back to back heart break. Just like that.

  218. Sneekes says:

    Damn it. This is the run on players I like, Three in a row.
    Hoping McLaurin and Nelson don’t go next.

  219. Trevor says:

    The Colts have crushed the last Two drafts!

  220. astro.domine says:

    It’s hard not to feel like Hill would be a more valuable asset than Blair :-{

  221. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Who just said IND is on the verge of contending for a SB? I’ve my doubts about Irsay’s ability to keep out of the FO. But there’s no denying they’re putting together a helluva roster. Campbell will be a nice weapon for Luck

  222. Paul Cook says:

    We have to remember that NOBODY is going to know how good these picks were or weren’t for quite awhile. What we do know is that the Hawks have been one of the best teams in the NFL at drafting and developing talent during the Carrol/Schneider era. How many HOF’s will this management team have picked?

    –Russell Wilson
    –Earl Thomas
    –Richard Sherman
    –Bobby Wagner

    For sure…

    Add to that these picks and FA’s…

    –Kam Chancellor
    –KJ Wright
    –Jarren Reed
    –Frank Clark
    –Chris Carson
    –Justin Britt
    –Russell Okung
    –Tyler Lockett
    –Doug Baldwin
    –Michael Dickson

    It’s hard to argue with success. I’m just still pissed off at that 2nd Super Bowl we should have won.

  223. Don says:

    Adderly looks better than Blair. Faster, can cover WR, Grab interceptions.

  224. charlietheunicorn says:

    I’ll make a wild prediction

    Take Andrew Luck early in FF…. he has weapons this year.

  225. Volume12 says:

    Man the NFCW is loading up on Udub prospects.

  226. CaptainJack says:

    Happy for Rapp.

    But… why the Rams…

  227. King_Rajesh says:

    Who is Wilson going to throw to this year?

    Baldwin hurt/possible retiring.
    Lockett is a stud.
    David Moore fizzled out.
    Jaron Brown isn’t more than a 3rd down WR.
    Malik Turner and Amara Darboh aren’t anything.

    Need some more weapons. If our defense is going to be raw/rebuilding, Wilson is going to need weapons to carry this team to 10 wins.

    • HawkfaninMT says:

      Maybe people’s top two choices of McLauren and Metcalf are still available

    • JohnH says:

      Way early to say Moore is washed up man.

      • King_Rajesh says:

        Where was he in the back half of the year?

        Dude got the drops and then shrank from the moment. It’s easy to cut it loose when you’ve got nothing to lose, but mentally, he showed he didn’t have it.

        • JohnH says:

          A guy has a bad half season in what is essentially his rookie year and you’re writing him off? That’s emotion not logic man.

    • DC says:

      8ish more picks brother.

      • King_Rajesh says:

        We don’t need another developmental WR (when have we developed a WR into anything anyway?)… We need a STUD to take the double coverage away from Lockett.

    • CaptainJack says:

      Way to put a negative spin on it.

      Moore could be great.
      Turner could be great.
      Darboh could break through.
      Brown is a solid option.
      Baldwin could be fine by the time the season roles around.
      They’ll add a receiver later.

      • Hawktalker#1 says:

        Although I agree they do need some more receiver help, I think you’re being overly pessimistic on the guys they currently have

    • Cameron says:

      Moore will continue to develop. Last year was essentially his rookie year (actual rookie year on PS was just to get him to NFL speed).

    • lil’stink says:

      You have no idea what’s going to happen with Baldwin.

      Remember how our red zone offense was going to suck after we let Graham walk? And how it actually got better?

    • Sneekes says:

      Reckon we may take two WR. One today, and another the back end of tomorrow (Nyqwan Murray?)

  228. Paul Cook says:

    Taylor Rapp picked. That makes FOUR Huskies in the first two rounds. Does that put them tied for the lead in this regard? Go Huskies!

    • SoCal12 says:

      They keep going to division rivals. I am sad.

    • Don says:

      How many late hits and helmet penalties will Blair make next year? I would prefer a safety who plays with discipline and can cover a WR .

      • JohnH says:

        The only thing that every single person on here should be able to acknowledge PC is the best in the league at is teaching DBs and tackling form.

      • RobeND says:

        I liked Rapp for the Hawks until his 4.7 40 at the combine. You just can’t have that type of speed at the back membrane of your defense unless the player has unreal instincts.

        Blair has 4.48 speed, length and a nasty disposition. He might be a better value.

        • Group captain mandrake says:

          If I remember correctly, I thought I read that Rapp was dealing with a groin injury which would account for his slower times. He certainly plays faster than that time. The only things I worry about with Blair is his size – he’s not built like a safety – and his overly aggressive play. That aggression does no good if he’s watching from the locker room. Hopefully Pete can coach that out of him.

  229. Volume12 says:


    Arizona becoming Team mini?

  230. Eli says:

    Cardinals are trying to corner the market on the tiniest players in the draft

  231. Volume12 says:

    KC got Frank Clark and Thornhill?!?

  232. mishima says:

    Rapp and Weddle. Weird.

  233. Tony says:

    I like our draft. Recomitting to tough, physical mentality. Give me another badass passrusher please.

    • Paul Cook says:

      I’d like a diamond-in-the-rough pass rushing DE next please. Some guy from some small college we’ve never heard of that can rip trees out of the ground, fly like a leopard, and crush the life out of like an anaconda. That would be nice.

  234. MJL says:

    there goes Thornhill..

  235. CaptainJack says:

    King Rajesh you got your wish.

  236. Gohawks5151 says:


  237. HawksBill says:

    The Seahawks next pick will really define where they want to go. I gathered they have been disappointed with the last few rookies that come in wide-eyed and a little intimidated. I think the are looking for men with attitude to play in the grown man’s league.

  238. charlietheunicorn says:

    Here comes a WR!

  239. BobbyK says:

    Hawks up!

  240. Volume12 says:

    Trade up!

  241. MJL says:

    Hawks picking!!

  242. Please be Winovich this time.

  243. H says:

    Love the Isabella fit in that offence, Arizona has been killing it imo.

  244. Volume12 says:

    Thank God they moved up. Don’t need 20 some odd picks.

  245. James Kupihea says:

    Hehehehe, I called the 2nd round trade up !

  246. charlietheunicorn says:

    Metcalf or McClaurin

  247. sdcoug says:

    Wow. Jake Browning?? Wtf hawks

  248. Rik says:

    War room is fist bumping. Gonna be interesting …

  249. MJL says:

    gave up our 3rd…

  250. Volume12 says:


    • charlietheunicorn says:

      Pre-Draft Analysis
      Metcalf has an elite combination of height, weight and speed in addition to long arms and big hands. He shows strong concentration in traffic and is outstanding in 50-50 situations. He’s a powerful open-field runner with the second gear to pull away when he gets a seam after the catch

    • Metcalf it is. Not sure how much I like the pick. Incredible athlete but is he a good enough receiver

  251. King_Rajesh says:




  252. Volume12 says:

    I’ve got all the players wrong, but all the positions right including a trade up for a wideout.

  253. MJL says:


  254. Hawk Scott says:

    DK!!!!!!!!!!! Russell got his big target. Dude is ripped and can flat-out fly!!!! GO HAWKS!!!

  255. mishima says:

    Great value.

  256. Ryan says:

    Happy for the WR there. Really wanted Hakeem Butler though.

  257. Paul Cook says:

    Yeah! Got their barn burning go-receiver. Can we develop this guy? That’s going to be the only question.

  258. H says:

    Yes. Please. I mocked him in round 1 for Seattle (in hindsight a terrible call) he’s a perfect fit for our offence and a great value, absolutely buzzing on this one.

  259. CaptainJack says:


    Didn’t expect that. Very sexy pick, literally.

  260. Eli says:

    The ultimate boom or bust pick. Love it.

  261. Gohawks5151 says:

    Pete finally gets his big WR. And he is fast as fu** too!!

  262. according to espn right now we still have our 3rd round pick #13. I wonder if its not updated or did they trade something else

  263. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Strange pick

    • CaptainJack says:

      How? He’s a 6’3.5 receiver who runs a 4.33. That is a very rare combination of size and speed.

      He isn’t an agile slot guy. He’s not the most versatile player ever.

      But come on, he has tantalizing traits. Hawks love that and value is great.

  264. Paul Cook says:

    I’m going to say it. This is a VERY interesting draft for the Hawks. There is a LOT of intrigue with all of these picks.

  265. CaptainJack says:

    I have been MONEY calling the positions though.

    1. Pass rusher.
    2. Db.
    3. Wide receiver.

    Feeling pretty good about that.

  266. bigten says:

    What did we give up to trade up? i love the pick! super pumped, as much as i would have loved mclaurin.

  267. Trevor says:

    Ideal fit for the player and team. I don’t care if Metcalf just runs go routes year #1 and jump balls in the red zone.

    If he can stay healthy this could be a steal.

  268. lil’stink says:

    Daryl Turner 2.0

  269. RobeND says:

    Lockett and Metcalf can makecteamsvpay for loading the box.

  270. WALL UP says:

    Physicality…The theme is quite clear. Swaaggg is coming back.

    • MJL says:

      so you’re saying prepare for a lot of inopportune 15 yard personal foul penalties this year??

      • WALL UP says:

        It’s call intimidation via punishment, not a finesse style of play, accomplished legally.

  271. Mark Souza says:

    Color me shocked. We just drafted a guy who can only run one route, and whose agility numbers are worse than Tom Brady’s.

  272. MJL says:

    nice pick by the Cards…

  273. Rob Staton says:

    Funny thing is — had they drafted in this order…

    #1 Metcalf
    #2 Collier
    #3 Blair

    Most fans would be going nuts and love it.

    • H says:

      Lol, so true.

    • Stevo says:

      good point!

    • Trevor says:

      Lol so true.

      I am loving this draft anyways. Last year was awesome and this year is even better.

      Pete is getting back to exactly what he wants. Nasty defence and freak freak athletes as play makers.

    • Hawk Scott says:

      That’s the greatest comment on this site all-day, Rob. So very true. Just goes to show PCJS do things their own way, critics be damned.

      On a side-note, thanks for all you do on this incredible blog. It’s become year-round daily reading for me… and don’t know what us 12’s would do without it. THANK YOU!!!

    • Don says:

      Good point.

    • Shady_Hawkster says:

      You just blew my mind Rob

    • Eburgz says:

      Very very true.

      Hats off to you rob. From the Cardinals drafting Murray first and DK dropping, to the Clemson guys going early and many other sage-like calls, too many to list. You have a real talent for evaluating these prospects and how they will fit in the draft and the league.

      Let me just sit here and I’ll eat my crow for saying Keim’s ego wouldn’t allow him to draft Murray. Amazing that you called it before the Kingsbury hiring that set it up.

    • chris says:

      some people will complain about anything!

  274. Don says:

    Oh Great! Last night I couldn’t sleep because I was mad. Now I can’t sleep because I can’t wait until training camp! Fantastic pick!

  275. DK will definitely pull some defenders out of the box. The running game just got even better.

  276. charlietheunicorn says:

    ok, so what would be another need to fill at #92?

    RB? TE? OG? DE?

  277. Volume12 says:

    Hats off to the community here for getting DE, safety, and wideout right in some order as the priorities.

  278. Eli says:

    I think we’re gonna see Justin Layne go in the next few picks

  279. Eburgz says:

    DeAndre Walker or Christian Miller next. Then Trevon Wesco and I’m a happy happy man.

  280. King_Rajesh says:


    Damn though, I wanted him real bad

  281. Shady_Hawkster says:

    I’m warming up to the Metcalf pick. If the guy’s a deep threat only, Russ is a damn good pairing. If we can land Winovich or a similarly interesting DE today I’ll be over the moon for this draft so far

  282. Volume12 says:

    Look. Is he raw? Yes.

    Do 6’4 WRs that weigh 230 lbs, have 35″ arms and ran a 4.4 grow on trees?

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      You can’t hate the pick. Exceptional traits…. and got him for a modest draft price.

      They have drafted 3 guys who will contribute day 1 year 1 from the draft already.

      2019 draft = 100% Lit

    • Tk says:

      Absolute steal

  283. GoHawksDani says:

    F….I hate this pick. Why did you have to do this to me Pete? Why cannot you just pick McLaurin like a good HC? I strongly feel Metcalf will be a bust and I’m totally sick they didn’t pick Terry. I’m pissed. Metcalf is a 60% total bust, 30% Funches type of mehh WR, and 10% chance of true greatness. For this offense I don’t need true greatness, I want reliable guys who can make smart plays, like Doug. I want dogs with chip on their shoulders, not overhyped body builders. I hope he can be that 10%…not because we need every 2nd round pick to dominate, but we’ll need a WR2 soon

    • MJL says:

      what he said…

    • Eli says:

      I know its upsetting to not get “your guy” but come on man..

    • King_Rajesh says:

      We already have a ton of midget WRs and 6’0 WRs.

      We don’t need a McLaurin, we need a Mike Evans.

      • GoHawksDani says:

        Evans can run more routes than go and post. DK won’t win on shorter routes that needs direction changing. He’s just too tight. He’s a gadget player. Good for WR3, but most likely that’ll be his ceiling because how he’s built

        • H says:

          The thing is though, that deep speed makes the shorter routes easier too. Defenders have to respect his long speed and give him a cushion underneath.

    • H says:

      Funchess: 4.7 40
      DK: 4.33 40

      What is that comp even about?

      • CaptainJack says:

        It’s not even like Funchess was a bust. He had some great seasons.

      • GoHawksDani says:

        Yeah, Funches slower that is why DK has the chance of greatness. But he’s as agile as Funches

    • Eburgz says:

      DK has the best upside of any wide receiver in this class and he fits what we want to do. Have fun crying while I celebrate.

  284. BobbyK says:

    Metcalf can tilt the field.

  285. 12th chuck says:

    leo/linebacker please!!

  286. Dawgma says:

    Oooof. Not a fan of that one at all. Cross your fingers they find some way to make him less one dimensional and really take advantage of his physical freakishness, I guess.

  287. Volume12 says:

    If Pittsburgh had taken him how many people would love that pick due to their track record of drafting receivers? Seattle jumped in front of them and the 9ers for a reason. Well more than that.

  288. Pran says:

    DK is going to succeed. Whenever Pete traded up yielded great players. Hope so…

  289. CaptainJack says:

    Here is a quote for all the people whining about Metcalf:

    “Don’t focus on what a player cannot do. Focus on what he can do, and how we can use it”

    – Bill Belichick

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      Put the player in a position to succeed….

    • lil’stink says:

      DK is the definition of a one trick pony. One trick ponies are easy for NFL defenses to figure out and neutralize. I bet we get another WR on day 3 or UDFA that ends up higher on the depth chart than DK.

      • CaptainJack says:


      • Eli says:

        I’m sure the Seahawks have no intention of trying to coach Metcalf up and teach him how to be a complete receiver.. that would just be absurd

        • GoHawksDani says:

          You can’t teach 4,33 speed. But you also can’t teach agility and short area quickness. He’ll be a better receiver than he is now, but there’s a reason why he was not a top10 pick. If we would have Doug for 4-5 more years I’d be fine with that pick. But if he retires this year we’d only have Lockett and DK? Moore? Darboh? Reynolds? I wouldn’t trust any of those guys as a WR2

          • Michael (CLT) says:

            You most certainly can provide him professional training with yoga that opens his hips. Speed you cannot teach. Flexibility is fungible.

      • John_s says:

        *cough* Josh Gordon *cough*

      • chris bant says:

        his one trick is phenomenal! if nothing else he will pull a safety outta the box and help our run game.

    • HawksGal says:


  290. JohnH says:

    I hope they get Walker or one of the big DTs

  291. CaptainJack says:

    I think the jets are very happu polite fell to them.

  292. Rob Staton says:

    Josh Scobee there… failing to resist making a point of it being pick number 69.

  293. Trevor says:

    What I love about this draft is I cannot think of 3 players in this draft who personify what Pete loves in football players.

    Nasty heavy handed DE
    Head Hunting Safety
    Freak WR

    • MJL says:

      I would have preferred Thornhill & McLaurin for our last two picks (sticking with the Seahawks preferred positions)..but time will tell

      • Trevor says:

        Mclaurin is my favorite player in the draft but Metcalf is someone who will definitely have an impact on this offense if he is healthy.

        • Lil’stink says:

          If Baldwin really is done TMc would have been a much better pick than Metcalf.

          • WallaSean says:

            You would have to think he’s going to try to come back, If they knew he was done I Don’t see passing on Mclaurin.

    • DC says:

      I hope Metcalf’s nickname becomes ‘laundry machine’ for all of the dpi & holding calls he draws.

    • Lil’stink says:

      DK is a freak, alright. 20 yard shuttle in the 3rd percentile, 3 cone in the 2nd percentile. Has there ever been a WR drafted with such horrendous agility?

      • Hawksince77 says:

        Check out the link that CaptainJack provides below. That might change some minds about Metcalf’s limitations.

    • WallaSean says:

      “hard Pass ” @37, but at #77, send that one trick pony on a go route, play action and let Russ sling it.

      • Justagamer602 says:

        I thought he has some good run after the catch abiltity? I think it will help our run game to have a Moss type of speed on the outside. Teams will have to respect the speed with safety help for sure.

  294. red says:

    take 124 and move 10 spot in 3 to early 80s trade back 132 for a 6 and 7.

  295. charlietheunicorn says:

    Ferguson, Walker ands Saunders still available for DL/LB
    McLaurin still available for WR
    Justice Hill still available at RB
    Warring at TE

  296. Ishmael says:

    Can’t teach pace. Been a miserably slow team for too long now. Whatever else about Metcalf, he’s going to be able to take the top off like few other players in the game.

    Bit of a one-trick pony, but it’s still a hell of a trick. Absolutely worth the pick in that range.

  297. Trevor says:

    If Doug comes back healthy how do teams stop the Hawks offense.

    Power run game focused with one of the best slot receivers in football in Baldwin. A TD machine in Locket and then a monster deep threat on play action in Metcalf.

    If they can add a seam busting TE this offense is complete and a top 5 NFL unit.

    • GoHawksDani says:

      If Doug comes back until we find a true WR2, I’m fine with that pick. DK is unique, but he has one huge upside and the rest of his game is mediocre at best. I guess he can block well, but not sure about his willingness and how much experience he has with it

    Watch this video before whining about Metcalf.

    • lil’stink says:

      Such a ridiculously inaccurate, lazy comparison based on superficialities.

      Agility is more important than a 40 time. And Metcalf’s agility numbers are historically bad.

      • CaptainJack says:

        Did you watch the video? Or are you just whining whining whining because you a sports team you follow picked a player you don’t like and you don’t want to have an open mind

        • Lil’stink says:

          Interesting comment from someone who has spewed more than his fair share of negativity.

        • hawkdawg says:

          The Megatron comparison didn’t seem all that lazy to me. Expecially since Megatron did not participate in any agility drills at his combine, and he made quite a career out of running slants, go routes, curls and screens.

          • Lil’stink says:

            On of my main concerns is that of all the routes you just listed, go routes are the only ones Wilson is really good at throwing.

            He can run slants and shows great burst. But slants are one of Wilson’s worst throws, tbh. He’s usually too high or behind the receiver.

            And he looks so slow out of his breaks on hitches and curls. Almost comically slow. A good CB will give him a good cushion because he knows he can read DK easily and then close. He’s got the speed of a Ferrari with Flinstone brakes. A couple of those “highlights” in the video were only highlights because the CB play was of the Keystone cops variety.

            I hope I’m wrong. Sincerely. But if Doug is really done, our receiver corps is just Lockett and a bunch of big, fast, stiff guys. If we don’t get Baldwin back, our a suitable replacement in the draft, our 3rd down defense is going to struggle.

      • Hawksince77 says:

        I didn’t see anything lazy about that report. The theme was clear and well told: figure out what a player can do, and don’t worry about what he can’t, and tailor your use appropriately. Haven’t we heard that around here before?

        Very cool CaptainJack, thanks for sharing. Funny how he said Metcalf could go as early as 3 overall, or as late as 22. He got that wrong. Hope he is right about everything else. 🙂

      • neil says:

        Did I hear Eisen say Metcalf has had a broken neck ?

  299. OaklandHawk says:

    My remaining mock, dedicated to Seahawks Twitter:

    3.29 – David Montgomery, RB
    4.12 – Damien Harris, RB
    4.22 – Darrell Henderson, RB
    4.30 – Rodney Anderson, RB
    5.4 – Trayveon Williams, RB
    5.21 – Devine Ozigbo, RB

    PFA – Myles Gaskin, Travis Homer, Darwin Thompson

  300. AlaskaHawk says:

    My immediate take on the second round is that the Seahawks could have drafted Metcalf first and picked up Blair in the third or fourth round. I’m not downgrading Blair, but it seems like he had zero buzz going into this draft.

  301. Trevor says:

    Would love to see Walker with the next pick !

  302. Volume12 says:

    Man I love that pick for the Rams. Holy sh**. Henderson and Gurley? 🔥🔥🔥

    Rams are killing it.

  303. Frank says:

    Like the first pick, love the second and would have hated this one other than the value for Metcalf this late in the draft is pretty good. Strongly disagree with him being a first round pick, but in the third great value!!!!

  304. King_Rajesh says:

    Hearing Schefty is saying that Baldwin might be done.

    • King_Rajesh says:


      Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter

      At the age of 30, Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin might be unable to play again due to the cumulative effect of multiple injuries, per sources. There is a real chance that Baldwin, one of the Seahawks’ best and most popular players, has played his last NFL down, a source said Friday.

    • MJL says:

      very sad if so..what a warrior!!

      • Justagamer602 says:

        I really hope that is not true. Baldwin is one of the best players to ever play for the Hawks, great person as well off of the field. It might be time to double dip at WR in the 4th round. I’d like to see a great route runner that can get first downs selected if one falls to us. Exciting draft so far imo.

      • Edgar says:

        If he retires, what’s his 10+ million 2019 salary end up as? Is it an Avril, Chancellor, Lynch like parting gift?

  305. SoCal12 says:

    I think this is the perfect locker room to coach up DK. Baldwin and Lockett are terrific students of the game that should help open up Metcalf’s route tree.

    • lil’stink says:

      Hard to run routes when you are as stiff as he is. That isn’t going to change.

      • CaptainJack says:

        He only needs to run in a straight line. That is what you are missing, stinky.

        • Lil’stink says:

          NFL has a long history of easily figuring those guys out, CJ. This isn’t a video game.

          • hawkdawg says:

            Look at the clip provided. All of it. He does not run only go routes. Establishing inside position on slants should be a strength, and there are a few releases on that clip that indicate he can do that. Not a stretch to figure that jamming the guy on the snap is going to be a real chore.

            • Lil’stink says:

              I did watch it. All of it. My quick response is that Wilson has never been great at throwing slants. Or hitches for that matter. Ever wonder we we don’t throw them too often?

      • MJL says:

        so this guy is Bob Hayes 2.0???

      • Eli says:

        might want to change your screen name to big’stink

      • HawksGal says:

        Wasn’t a problem for Calvin Johnson.

        • lil’stink says:

          So you’re saying Calvin Johnson has historically bad agility numbers like DK? That all he did was run go routes? Lol

          • King_Rajesh says:

            Calvin had an agent who told him not to do the agility drills.

            If Metcalf got that advice, he might have gone in the Top 15.

  306. CaptainJack says:

    Metcalf is a wide receiver literally built for the deep ball.

    He’s going to a team with the best deep ball passer in the league, hands down.

    Perfect fit.

  307. BobbyK says:

    I like the pick fine, but I hoped for McLaurin. Based on the first two picks, they were going for guys who care about one thing… being intense, passionate, playing physical football, a guy you’d want in your foxhole, etc. That seems like McLaurin.

    But we all know Pete loves that freakish athlete, too. And Metcalf can tilt the field even more than McLaurin.

    One thing about playing for the Seahawks… Metcalf will get less targets and receptions. It’s almost a good thing because there will be less hits for him to take on that neck. Will hurt his numbers, but help his career.

    I like the pick though. Having Lockett and Metcalf means Russ has two guys who can fly. Really helps the running game. Or the running game really helps the passing game. Either way, hard to argue with the high upside of this pick. Even though he’s not quick in a box, they’ve got two of the quickest guys in a short area in Baldwin and Lockett already. They can afford to do this.

    They’re going DL later in this round. I’m over 90% sure. The DL is still worse off today than it was a week ago at this time. It needs reinforcements.

    • H says:

      It’ll hurt his numbers overall, but he’s also gonna have some games with like 3 catches 100+ yards and multiple TDs.

    • HawkfaninMT says:

      I don’t see any way the DL is going to be better than it was a week ago. I’m not saying they should grab Wonovich, Walker or Ferguson (is he still available?), just saying that I feel as though expectations need remain in check

  308. HawkfaninMT says:

    This Pro Bowl has always stuck out to me. RW to Vincent Jackson was just dominant. This is what I hope to see from Metcalf

  309. MJL says:

    Nice pick by the Pack…

  310. CaptainJack says:

    Sternberger will be good for the packers.

    Please, can we put a rest to Metcalf’s agility numbers? His agility is irrelevant to the role is is going to play for us.

    Great teams put players with unique skills in the best position to succeed.

  311. Volume12 says:

    Dan Snyder is drafting well. What kind of world are we living in?

  312. MJL says:

    there goes McLaurin..weep

  313. Volume12 says:

    NE stays playing chess while everyone else plays checkers

  314. Trevor says:

    The Redskins have my highest rated draft class so far.

    Montez Sweat
    Terry Mclaurin

    Now that is a solid draft.

    • Don says:

      Nah, We Hawk fans know it is all about quantity, and depth. We dont want impact guys

    • RealRhino2 says:

      Until Haskins can’t figure out his accuracy issues from bad lower body mechanics, and Sweat has to retire b/c of his heart condition, and McLaurin turns into a glorified gunner…. 😉

      It seems like every year that a draft matches up with the media’s ideal of a great draft it turns into not so great. Time will tell, though. I’m really not a Haskins believer.

  315. CaptainJack says:

    I liked McLaurin as much as the next guy but…

    real possibility he’s the third best receiver on his college team.

  316. MJL says:

    ..and of course the Pats get Winovich

  317. CaptainJack says:

    We were not double dipping at wideout anyways, at least not on day two.

  318. MJL says:

    First Badger!! (sorry..alumni)

  319. CaptainJack says:

    Chase a patriot?

    Color me shocked. Great pick for the pats, this guy is awesome.

    Doesn’t fit the physical profile seattle looks for. But Belicheck is going to get the most out of him, which is a lot.

  320. GoHawksDani says:

    OK, just saw the video when they picked DK. The dude was pretty emotional, which means to me that he’s really happy and hopefully will return the favor of picking him by doing 110% on and off the field. If that’s true and he has a great character then I made my peace with that pick (although if Baldwin will retire this year our passing game might be spotty)

  321. HawkfaninMT says:

    CJG and Ferguson being available is a bit surprising to me…

    Would be incredible haul to get those two with our next chunk of picks

  322. charlietheunicorn says:

    Ximines with the Seahawks pick?

  323. WallaSean says:

    I’m over DL,, time to make some moves to keep them all off the field, a punishing FB/TE who will be the big reach of R3 Wesco please!

  324. JJ says:

    Time to watch for a de run

  325. charlietheunicorn says:

    Seahawks pick within the next hour 🙁

  326. Volume12 says:

    Might have to go slot receiver next. At least with one of the three 4’s they have.

  327. CaptainJack says:

    I am three for three.

    Next pick will be LEO.

  328. Volume12 says:

    Really good, solid pick for Detroit.

  329. do you think the Hawks will double up at end and take Feurguson or double up with Terry Mcklarrin?, how about Gardener-Johnson? Who is left that you want!

  330. Don says:

    The KC pick was Seattle’s pick, but was switched with the Clark trade.

  331. Rob Staton says:

    It’s incredible how many really good players remain on the board.

    Those fourth round picks are looking sweet at the moment.

  332. Drewdawg11 says:

    Fergie is the guy I want, but I was hoping McClauren would last. With Doug retiring we needed a sure thing. Metcalf is a lottery ticket. He needs to do some yoga and skip the weights once in a while.

  333. Barry says:

    Long out of Mi was someone you can’t help but like. I was hoping for him. The Rams are having another nice draft.

  334. CaptainJack says:

    Might just be a rumor…

    But there is a rumor going around on twitter that the Hawks are going to target Ziggy Ansah after the draft with the cash they saved from the Clark trade.

  335. Coleslaw says:

    Khalen Saunders, Renell Wren, Dawson Knox, Kaden Smith, Emmanuel Hall, Stanley Morgan jr., Gary Jennings, D’Andre Walker, Christian Miller, Gardner Johnson, Ximines, Hollins, Jaylon Ferguson

  336. Volume12 says:

    Love it.

    DK Metcalf: why did you want so long? (Talking to PC through tears)

  337. mishima says:

    Saunders, Walker, Omenihu, Ferguson, CGJ.

    I think I want Dru Samia.

  338. Volume12 says:

    KC has killed it! Frank, Honey Badger, Thornhill, and Khalen Saunders? Yes sir!

    Got a Tyreek Hill insurance policy too?

  339. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    GODDAMIT!!!!! Never mix alcoholic beverages!!! I just woke up!!!! Wtf happened???!!!!!! I started doing shots after Marquise Blair and blacked out!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!!!

  340. HawksBill says:

    The Chiefs fan guzzling the beer with it running down his face was great. I don’t think he cared what the pick was.

  341. MJL says:

    damn..there goes Saunders

  342. Volume12 says:

    Thank you Baltimore!

  343. hawkdawg says:

    You all should watch the clip of Schneider and Pete calling D.K. on It’s touching. The pressure these guys feel, especially the ones who feel that they are dropping, is tremendous.

  344. CaptainJack says:

    Furguson is SUCH a ravens pick.

    They always snap up great players who drop.

  345. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    Baltimore can eat a dick! They purposefully called that kid up there so I would be less pissed off about it! The Ravens do this every year!!

  346. HawkfaninMT says:

    Hawks move up? Hope it didn’t cost a 4th

  347. CaptainJack says:

    I don’t understand what the F the texans are doing

  348. CaptainJack says:

    Hawks making moves baby

  349. regan sayer says:

    Moved up to 88.

  350. MJL says:

    Hawks on deck!!

  351. CaptainJack says:

    STELLAR pick by New England.

    Rodney Anderson here? I dunno why, just a weird feeling.

  352. HawksBill says:

    Would like Joe Jackson here

  353. King_Rajesh says:


  354. King_Rajesh says:


    Drafted Cody Barton, LB, Utah.

    Double dipping on Utah it seems!

  355. CaptainJack says:


    Cody Barton would have been a great pick in the later rounds.
    He’s pretty underrated though.

  356. Ben Ft. Worth says:

    Ok ok, I wanted a LB. I’m good with this pick.

  357. Volume12 says:


  358. Roger Davis says:

    I’m makin’ the call!

    This coming season the four leading pass receivers for the Hawks will be Lockett, Metcalf, Carson and Penny.

    Screens that started as bombs mixed with bombs that started as screens. In between Carson and Penny running the ball down your throat.

  359. MJL says:

    okay…haven’t heard of this guy

  360. CaptainJack says:

    On Barton:
    Parents and siblings were all college athletes
    Good definition in his upper body
    Instinctive to feel play direction and grab early jump
    Has quick, heavy hands
    Upper body strength to punch and stack tight ends
    Adequate shed technique and success
    Patient but thorough as tackler
    Vigilant to break down in space and drive chest through target
    Makes necessary adjustments to secure and finish
    Man cover experience with above-average zone awareness
    Recognizes route combinations and flows to incoming targets

    KJ understudy

  361. HawksBill says:

    Not sure they needed to trade up for him.

  362. chris says:

    does anyone have any info on this guy?

  363. charlietheunicorn says:

    Traded 5th and got a 6th back, for slight move up 3rd round.

  364. Hawktalker#1 says:

    Very odd

  365. Hawk Scott says:

    Was Barton on anyone’s radar (except for PCJS)????

  366. RWIII says:

    D. J. Metcalf. I wish I was a fly in the room at Russell Wilson’s draft party when the JS/PC took Metcalf. No doubt he was giving everyone high fives when Metcalf was announced. I think defensive coordinator’s in the NFC West hearts sank when they saw that Metcalf was going to Seattle.

  367. bigten says:

    Rob, i trust in PCJS, but why are we picking this guy and not a DE? Im just super confused. lol i mean mack wilson is even still there, tre lamar, BBK and other lbs. Never even heard of this guy.

    • CaptainJack says:

      I’ll break it down for you.

      This draft is pretty shoddy for linebackers.

      There are plenty of DE types in round four, and we have three picks in round 4.

      Seahawks liked his testing numbers and tape, and there was a team who also liked him, so they wanted to secure him.

  368. drewdawg11 says:

    We reach for yet another Utah player. He wasn’t even the best linebacker on his own team. That was chase Hansen. I’m absolutely flummoxed… I apologize. I’m just seriously confused.

  369. HawksBill says:

    JS on the phone, is he trying to get back into this round?

  370. CaptainJack says:

    Rob figured it out.

    Barton had great testing numbers. Seahawks love that for linebackers.

    Wright and Wagner won’t be here forever, they need an understudy.

  371. Ben Ft. Worth says:


    “I was replaced by a Zoo Animal!!”

  372. MJL says:

    Not happy…

  373. CaptainJack says:

    This dude could be a hidden gem. Don’t panic.

  374. CaptainJack says:

    There we go. Indy was going to draft Barton. They took another pac12 linebacker instead.

    • Volume12 says:

      Okereke will be the better player IMO

      • CaptainJack says:

        For the record, I liked both in college, but before the draft I wasn’t sure of either of them as pros.

        • Volume12 says:

          I think Barton will be a nice project at LB for them. Only started one season in college so he’s just scratching his surface.

  375. charlietheunicorn says:

    Build LB depth, since it is a bit thin right now. Side line to sideline speed, so could be an understudy for Bobby Wagner. They really do not have a replacement MLB, if he happened to go down.

  376. chris says:

    they must have had info of a team that liked him.

  377. chris says:

    they know more about who wants who than any of us do.

  378. God of Thunder says:

    JC a master of misdirection and decoy setting. How many of these picks have we fans predicted? Even our excellent host Rob, who knows more than most , is probably a bit surprised at the names we are hearing being called out. But I trust the scouts and FO.

  379. RobeND says:

    I do not know much about him. He is highly rated but praise is muted. 117 tackles last year is very impressive.

  380. MJL says:

    Alright..I’m switching to to you all

  381. charlietheunicorn says:

    Tough inside linebacker who relies on strength, effort and early diagnosis to rack up tackle production. Barton has played inside and outside linebacker spots but will likely lock in as an inside linebacker in odd or even fronts. His speed, strength and short-area-quickness testing were all strong at the combine, which should help push him up. He’s an instinctive, tough player with backup and special teams ability who should hear his name called in the middle rounds.

  382. CaptainJack says:

    Who on earth is Trey Pipkins

  383. regan sayer says:

    Just cause you never heard of him doesn’t mean it’s a bad pick, just means your not doing enough homework. Let the process play out. Had pretty good run with last Utah LB we took. Kid has serious numbers at the combine. 30 reps and elite short and 3 cone. Need to get some young talent to groom for eventual KJ retirement/injury.

  384. RobeND says:

    What is our philosophy forc4th and 5th round picks. Need?. Best player available? Its fluid?

    I want Julian Love. He can play CB, nickel and Safety.

    • Volume12 says:

      They addressed their need picks.

      DL, S, WR.

      • BobbyK says:

        True. But DL was a need a week ago with Frank Clark still on the roster. The DL is now worse than it was at the end of last season. Maybe they will sign someone to shore it up. Still time to do something and I’m sure they will – it’s just, again, this DL is worse than the one that ended last year.

        • Volume12 says:

          Can’t argue that. They must be really high on Martin.

          I think it’ll be a combination of both. Sign someone and add a guy t’mmrow.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      CBs and S types are very likely. OL(OG or C) could also be a position that might see a pick.

      I would also keep a close eye on the QB Grier. Good value and they need 1 more camp body at the least.

      RB is also something they like to take later round fliers on….

  385. Hawk Scott says:

    “The two Utes.”

    Judge: “What was that? Did you say, Utes?”

  386. Volume12 says:

    Damn. O’Shane Ximines was a momma’s boy? I like him.

  387. BobbyK says:

    At this point in the draft, I don’t care who they take because the odds are against them making a big impact as rookies. They’re creating more competitive and talented depth and I’m okay with that. Just get some guys who will be good football players.

  388. chris says:

    on the 710 live stream dave wyman looks like he wants to kick someones a@#

  389. AlaskaHawk says:

    Barton is coming off an honorable mention All-Pac-12 season as a senior, leading his team with 116 tackles while also being credited with 10.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, an interception, and six pass breakups. He had been a part-time starter the previous two seasons, at rover in 2016 (five starts in 11 games with 66 tackles, 8.5 for loss, and three pass breakups) and at linebacker in 2017 (four starts in 13 games with 45 tackles, 4.5 for loss, and four sacks). He had seven tackles in 12 games as a reserve as a true freshman in 2015, just one year after earning first-team all-state honors at Salt Lake City’s Brighton High School. His brother, Jackson (the Utes’ starting left tackle), is also looking for an NFL job in 2019.

  390. Gohawks5151 says:

    Walker and Wesco tomorrow please. I will also accept Omenihu or Miller also

  391. charlietheunicorn says:

    Them Ravens having a sneaky good draft.

  392. Trevor says:

    Deandre Walker

    Trevon Wesco
    Gary Jennings

  393. charlietheunicorn says:

    4th round should be fun for the Seahawks fans…… 3 picks!

    And the round should be completed by 1030 Pacific! WOOOOT

    Would love to see cam Newton’s face right now

  395. charlietheunicorn says:


  396. Cameron says:

    Damn…. Grier would’ve been a perfect backup for the next 4 years early in the 4th…

    • Hawktalker#1 says:

      Since we have Lynch already, would prefer to get other players that could have more impact.

      Still need a lot more pass rush.

  397. regan sayer says:

    Excellent detailed scouting report on Barton. I’m liking what I’m reading!

  398. CaptainJack says:

    Barton looks like Vander Esch

  399. Denver Hawk says:

    Not a bad day at the office maneuvering the board filling position needs. Had chances to get Thornhill/Mclaurin, opted for different style players. Theme of toughness pervasive here.

    Still picks 12, 22, and 30 tomorrow in Rd 4. Following the theme, I’d LOVE to see Samia, Wesco, Hooker or Tell. Also feeling greedy and wanting another pick in Rd 5 and a Rd 7 pick to grab a RB.

    What other depth needs are out there? Thinks we need interior OL depth, DE, TE, RB.

    Is CGJ too much of a headache for teams or arms too short?

    • Volume12 says:

      Good question on CGJ.

      Still a lot of EDGE’s, corners, even WRs too.

    • Coleslaw says:

      On depth targets, you named them. Add outside CB and a slot WR

    • red says:

      I like these players in rounds 4 and five


    • GoHawksDani says:

      TE is a big need based on blocking, versatility I think Wesco. Based on blocking and character I feel Moreau can also be up on the board. More DL is a must. Not sure about outside…not loving our group, but I doubt anything other than rotational/depth guys are out of the picture even with this deep draft. Maybe Hollins or Omenihu? But those also feel like depth guys. I think the interior run DL with some passrush upside can be in play. Watts or Gaines. RB can also happen, but it could be an UDFA too. OL would be nice too, if we’d pick Samia, I’d be happy. I also feel we could pick another WR, more Baldwin-like. And outside CB depth is a serious need also. Ton of options, like Thomas or Jackson for example. Nickel CB is also probably not set as they mainly want Blair as SS. Hooker or Tell could come in play.

      My mock:
      #114 (R4) – Foster Moreau (TE)
      #124 (R4) – Marvell Tell (nCB)
      #132 (R4) – Armon Watts (DT)
      #142 (R5) – Stephen Denmark (CB)
      #209 (R6) – Johnnie Dixon (WR) or Ozigbo (RB) or Ingold (FB)

      But ton of value in the next 20-30 picks, hard to choose. I think TE is depleted compared to other positions and I like Moreau

  400. Tomahawk says:

    Rob, I don’t post comments too often, but I did want to thank you for all you do for Hawk fans. At the end of each day, I always look forward to a good read on your site.

  401. Volume12 says:

    Gotta say. I paid more attention to Blair and Hansen on that Utah D. Will be fun to dig in on Barton and Corrion Ballard when they take him too.

    4.132. D’Andre Walker DE
    5.142. Armon Watts DT
    6.209. Trevon Wesco TE

    Couldn’t resist Butlee and Wilson. LB would be set for now and for years. Set and forget the whole position group.

    Still surprised we haven’t grabbed more defensive line. But then again walker and miller are still on the board. Grab them and CGJ with the 4ths please lol or at least 1 of them. I’m still perplexed at the lack of DL taken.

  405. Volume12 says:

    I love everyone reacting to Pat McAfee.

    Y’all should see some of the stuff that dude says on the WWE pre-shows as part of their panel.

  406. DC says:

    Can we transport Doug Baldwin’s brain into Preston Williams’ body & draft him tomorrow?

  407. Volume12 says:


    DK Metcalf IV’d with Seattle shirtless. Pete was so shocked he took his shirt off too!

  408. CaptainJack says:

    Screw it…

    I want to draft Hakeem Butler tomorrow as well.

    Wilson will LOVE Metcalf.

    Barton will play sooner than we realize.

    Looking like Blair will be at safety. CGJ tomorrow?

    No LEO, do we try to sign Ansah? Plenty of options left on the board.

  409. neil says:

    Did I hear correctly that Metcalf has had a broken neck, at some point in his life?

  410. DC says:

    Does Pete realize how botched most of our mock drafts are looking right now? Par for the course. Will he throw half of us a bone and draft Greg Gaines tomorrow?

  411. Striker says:

    Think the guy you’re looking for is Matt Miller on Sample
