NFL Draft 2022 — Live Blog — Rounds 2-3

April 29th, 2022 | Written by Rob Staton

Welcome to the live blog for this year. I’ll be posting my reaction to every pick on here, including longer-form analysis of the Seahawks picks.

Don’t forget — I’ll be doing an instant reaction live stream immediately after the third round concludes.

NO tipping picks in the comments section

#33 Tampa Bay — Logan Hall (DT, Houston)
My source said Hall had a great chance to sneak into the late first and he goes as the top pick on day two. Hall is incredibly agile and quick. He’s powerful. Yet he needs a better pass-rush plan and he’s too upright. At the moment he’s an out of control fireball.

#34 Green Bay (v/MIN) — Christian Watson (WR, North Dakota State)
The Packers give up two second rounders (#53 & #59) to move up. It’s a bit of a desperation move due to the run on receivers yesterday. However, I really like Watson. He’s incredibly quick and can be used in a variety of ways (vertical, sweeps, shorter routes with quick separation). Good player.

#35 Tennessee — Roger McCreary (CB, Auburn)
A tenacious, competitive cornerback. He’s diminutive and his lack of length could be an issue. However, his recovery speed and ability to mirror then just stick out an arm at the crucial moment to break up a pass is impressive.

#36 New York Jets (v/NYG) — Breece Hall (RB, Iowa State)
The Jets jump ahead of Houston, giving up a fifth rounder to move up two spots. New York is building a heck of a class. Hall is a plug and play, impact player for the offense — adding to Garrett Wilson. This is a really smart draft from the Jets.

#37 Houston — Jalen Pitre (S, Baylor)
A lot of people like Pitre but I had a hard job assessing him. I think this is a bit of a reach though for a nickel safety type. He made plays in college but I can’t tell whether it translates to the next level.

#38 Atlanta (v/NYG) — Arnold Ebiketie (DE, Penn State)
The Falcons trade up from #43 moving ahead of the Colts, Seahawks and Bears. Ebiketie was fun to watch and he’s explosive. However, it did raise a bit of an alarm when he didn’t run at the combine and then delivered a 1.69 10-yard split at his pro-day. Burst matters. Atlanta badly needed a pass rusher.

#39 Chicago — Kyler Gordon (CB, Washington)
Extremely explosive, incredibly agile. Gordon has a ton of talent. The forty he ran at the combine was a big surprise and probably cost him a place in round one. Nevertheless, this is good value for the Bears who didn’t have a first rounder.

#40 Seattle — Boye Mafe (DE, Minnesota)
Mafe is tremendous value here. His Senior Bowl performance was outstanding. He made it look effortless. Cast your mind back to that time. We were talking about him being a round one option if they had their #10 pick still. He has heavy hands, he’s lightning quick off the edge. He ran a 1.56 10-yard split. He just needs to find a level of consistency. He has superb potential and they needed a pass rusher. I had him going #31 overall to the Chiefs in my mock.

#41 Seattle — Kenneth Walker (RB, Michigan State)
Another superb value pick. Again, think back to the college football season and how often we talked about Walker. He carried Michigan State on his back. Then think back to the combine. He just looked like an absolute dude. He was rocked up. Ran amazingly. Explosive. This is the range in the draft where some of the best backs in the league have been taken. I really like this value.

Bonus thought on the quarterbacks
Been saying for a long time — this isn’t a quarterback class to chase. While many have clamoured for this group in the media and among Seattle’s fan base, look at what the league is saying. Look at what Scot McCloughan told us. Look at the breakdowns we’ve done on here. It’s a draft full of third rounders.

#42 Minnesota (v/IND) — Andrew Booth (CB, Clemson)
Fantastic value here. My now overly cited to the point of nausea league source said he was CB3 in this class. The injury hurt him a bit. He has a chance to be really good though. He plays the ball superbly, he can tackle, he’s incredibly smooth with his footwork but he can mix it up too.

#43 New York Giants — Wan’Dale Robinson (WR, Kentucky)
I loved Robinson. He was so good for Will Levis — a reliable threat. He is fearless. He reminded me a lot of Golden Tate. You can rely on him to get the job done — just get the ball into his hands.

#44 Houston — John Metchie (WR, Alabama)
When I reviewed the tape recently all I could think of was — he’s not as fast as I thought. Even so, he always produced for Alabama and the Texans needed a target for Davis Mills.

#45 Baltimore — David Ojabo (DE, Michigan)
This was about the range for him post-injury. It’s a great pick for player and team. Well done to the man from Scotland. The Ravens are just good at drafting.

#46 Detroit — Josh Paschal (DE, Kentucky)
This is such a Lions pick. Paschal is a tone-setter and a passionate, forceful defender. He’s not much of an edge threat but he’s a thunderous force against the run. Really explosive, really agile. The type who helps set a culture.

#47 Washington — Phidarian Mathis (DT, Alabama)
I like Mathis. Long arms. Did a fantastic job rushing the passer despite a middling physical profile. He stood out in numerous games. I’m not sure replacing Tim Settle this early was a huge need but you know what you’re going to get with Mathis.

#48 Chicago — Jaquan Brisker (S, Penn State)
Their new defensive minded Head Coach adds two defensive backs. Brisker has his fans in scouting circles but I was never truly enamoured with him. The Bears start a new era focusing on their secondary — which is a bit odd given the need to build around Justin Fields.

#49 New Orleans — Alontae Taylor (CB, Tennessee)
I like him but this feels pretty high. Good length, great athleticism. He has a lot of potential and he could play corner or safety.

#50 New England (v/KC) — Tyquan Thornton (WR, Baylor)
The Patriots move up from 54 and give the Chiefs a fifth round pick. Thornton ran an incredible forty at the combine and they’ve gone with the speed because I had him down in round four. He’s very thin, very slight. Can he handle the physicality at the next level?

#51 Philadelphia — Cam Jurgens (C, Nebraska)
Outstanding pick. Love what the Eagles have done here — adding Jordan Davis, A.J. Brown and Jurgens. He will be the heir apparent to Jason Kelce and he’ll help set the tone up front. No wonder they were celebrating in the Philly draft room.

#52 Pittsburgh — George Pickens (WR, Georgia)
The Steelers have done a good job drafting receivers over the years but I never quite could get excited about Pickens. He’s had injuries. There was some character chatter. They need weapons for Kenny Pickett though.

#53 Indianapolis — Alec Pierce (WR, Cincinnati)
Despite the 4.3 testing speed he had a lot of contested catches which made you wonder if the speed translates. That said, there were also posts downfield where he blazed by a defender and Desmond Ridder under-threw the pass to make life harder than it needed to be. He has a shot to be good. I like him more than Pickens.

#54 Kansas City — Skyy Moore (WR, Western Michigan)
He goes in the same range as former team mate Dee Eskridge. He’s very competitive and a warrior. He’s not as quick as Eskridge. He goes up and gets the football. He’ll enjoy playing with Pat Mahomes. This fills a need and they didn’t panic like green Bay.

#55 Arizona — Trey McBride (TE, Colorado State)
I like him. He loves to block, he tested well at pro-day. He’s a complete TE.

#56 Dallas — Sam Williams (DE, Ole Miss)
Provided the character concerns check out, this is a fantastic pick. He ran a 1.52 10-yard split and he can get after it off the edge. It’s a classic Cowboys draft pick and they like taking a shot on these guys. I would’ve had him in Seattle (character permitting).

#57 Tampa Bay (v/BUF) — Luke Goedeke (G, Central Michigan)
The Buccs trade up with the Bills. Goedeke will kick inside to guard. He was well liked at Central Michigan, with a lot of people rating him against the far more raw and inexperienced Bernhard Raimann.

#58 Atlanta — Troy Andersen (LB, Montana State)
One of the most fun players to watch on tape. His testing profile is elite and the sky’s the limit for him. He can be superb with the right coaching and guidance. This could launch a bit of a run at the position.

#59 Minnesota — Ed Ingram (G, LSU)
I had him in round four. He jumped an awful 20.5 inch vertical at the combine. There are some good, athletic snaps on tape but this feels like a reach.

#60 Cincinnati (v/BUF) — Cam Taylor-Britt (CB, Nebraska)
The Bengals have traded up from #63, leapfrogging the 49ers. I’m a big fan of CTB. He’s a big hitter who loves to tackle. He has the speed to cover and be a potential playmaker. A good pick at cornerback for the Bengals and if they kept him away from the Niners, all the better.

#61 San Francisco — Drake Jackson (DE, USC)
People were talking him up as a first rounder this week. He has amazing flashes on tape at times but my word you want to see more. He’s been up and down trying to find an ideal weight. He’s a chunky edge. I get a Rasheem Green vibe from him that he has all the potential but can he put it together?

#62 Kansas City — Bryan Cook (S, Cincinnati)
I love Cook — a solid, mature leader and a player who loves to mix it up as a tackler. He can cover. He’s just really solid. He can do some of what Tyrann Mathieu did for them. He’s that kind of player. I had him squarely in round two.

#63 Buffalo — James Cook (RB, Georgia)
I didn’t see him going this early. Dalvin’s brother goes in the second round. That’s interesting. Will be keen to see how they utilise him.

#64 Denver — Nik Bonitto (DE, Oklahoma)
I mocked this a couple of times, it felt like a fit for what they do and they need to replace Von Miller. This is good value for the Broncos to be fair, given their lack of picks this year.

#65 Jacksonville — Luke Fortner (C, Kentucky)
I wasn’t blown away by his tape. I liked his willingness to get to the second level and he’s a solid player but I didn’t get excited watching him (yes, it’s possible to get excited watching a center). I had him down for day three.

#66 Minnesota — Brian Asamoah (LB, Oklahoma)
His tape is great. He flies to the ball-carrier. He would’ve been a second rounder but for a middling set of testing results.

#67 New York Giants — Joshua Ezeudu (G, North Carolina)
Wasn’t crazy about him on tape. Not explosive or that athletic. They needed a guard and he’ll come in and give it a go. I prefer Logan Bruss. Another player I had listed for day three.

#68 Cleveland — MJ Emerson (CB, Mississippi State)
Love this pick. Classic Seahawks-style corner. Stood out at the combine as someone who screamed Seattle. On tape he hits hard and loves a tackle. He needs better ball skills to create turnovers but there’s so much to like. I gave him a R2 grade.

#69 Tennessee — Nicholas Petit-Frere (T, Ohio State)
On tape he looked athletic and smooth. He just lacked an edge. Yet at the combine he tested poorly and it took the edge off his stock.

#70 Jacksonville — Chad Muma (LB, Wyoming)
Muma’s tape is really good. He flies around the field and was a quick striker once he’d ID’s the ball-carrier. They take another linebacker after selecting Devin Lloyd earlier.

#71 Chicago — Velus Jones Jr (WR, Tennessee)
He is a special player when it comes to special teams. He can be a big time return-man, he can block for others too. His character is excellent and he will lift those around him. He’s really quick so he’ll have a role on offense too.

#72 Seattle — Abraham Lucas (T, Washington State)
Punching the air over here. What a pick. Lucas was by far the best performer during on-field drills at the combine. He was great at the Senior Bowl. He’s a tremendous run-blocker. I had him graded in round one, they get him in round three. I love this pick.

#73 Indianapolis — Jelani Woods (TE, Virginia)
He was so interesting on tape and his testing backed it up. Yes he’s a bit tall and stiff but there’s some magic in there.

#74 Atlanta — Desmond Ridder (QB, Cincinnati)
This is fair enough range for Ridder. The first round talk was total and utter nonsense. This is his true placing in this class — mid-rounds.

#75 Houston (v/Denver) — Christian Harris (LB, Alabama)
He had great testing but his tape just left you wanting more.

#76 Baltimore — Travis Jones (DT, Connecticut)
Of course the Ravens selected this guy. Because they continue to make smart moves. They are having an outstanding draft.

#77 Indianapolis — Bernhard Raimann (T/G, Central Michigan)
They really focus on explosive traits in Indy so it’s no surprise they’ve taken Raimann. His technique needs a total ground-zero build though.

#78 Cleveland — Alex Wright (DE, UAB)
His testing was so bad I didn’t give him a draftable grade.

#79 LA Chargers — JT Woods (S, Baylor)
I’m very surprised he’s gone before Nick Cross. I had him in the fourth round. He’s a solid player with a good set of physical traits.

#80 Denver — Greg Dulcich (TE, UCLA)
Given the Wilson trade, the Broncos have done a tremendous job finding value with their two picks. Dulcich has major potential and will immediately fill the void left by Noah Fant.

#81 New York Giants — Cordale Flott (CB, LSU)
I didn’t give Flott a draftable grade. He’s just so slight and how will we handle the physical NFL?

#82 Atlanta — DeAngelo Malone (DE, Western Kentucky)
He had a great Senior Bowl and tested well after adding weight. As a developmental pass rusher he is a good pick in this range.

#83 Philadelphia — Nakobe Dean (LB, Georgia)
I had a big disagreement in the comments recently for suggesting Dean could last to round three. The injuries and lack of size or testing were an issue. It’s as simple as that. The Eagles doing it right by drafting two Georgia defenders.

#84 Pittsburgh — DeMarvin Leal (DT, Texas A&M)
As I’ve kept saying — the idea of DeMarvin Leal is better than the reality. This is a good spot for him though and he provides some value at this stage.

#85 New England — Marcus Jones (CB, Houston)
He’s really small but he still finds a way to make an impression. He’s one of the best special teamers in the draft.

#86 Tennessee (v/LVR) — Malik Willis (QB, Liberty)
The Titans move up four spots in a deal with the Raiders. Willis comes off the board, in fairness, in the range he deserved to go in. The media should feel bad about what they’ve done to him — promoting him way beyond his level, mocking him #2 overall and stuff like that. That was utter nonsense and I bet the last two days have been an emotional rollercoaster for him because people talked utter bollocks about his draft stock for months.

#87 Arizona — Cam Thomas (DE, San Diego State)
On tape he flashed and looked good. But his lack of length, injuries ruling him out of the Senior Bowl and average testing took away some of the gloss.

#88 Dallas — Jalen Tolbert (WR, South Alabama)
This is really good value for Tolbert. Dallas has done a good job adding receivers over the years. He’s really smooth and made the best catch in college football last season.

#89 Buffalo — Terrel Bernard (LB, Baylor)
He’s well regarded for his character reportedly but I thought it was hard to imagine him in much more than a special teams role.

#90 Las Vegas — Dylan Parham (C, Memphis)
Good player, strong value in this range. The type of pick you can imagine the New England mafia making for their O-line. He impressed at the Senior Bowl.

#91 Tampa Bay — Rachaad White (RB, Arizona State)
I liked watching him and he can fill the Ronald Jones role for them. His frame isn’t what you’d typically expect for a running back. He’s quite long and lean. However, he has a bit of an X-factor about him and he can break off big plays.

#92 Green Bay — Sean Rhyan (G, UCLA)
He played tackle in college but has a guard frame. Short arms are an issue but the Packers have done a good job developing their O-liners.

#93 San Francisco — Tyrion Davis-Price (RB, LSU)
I really like TDP. Terrific, underrated player. The Niners keep running through RB’s and to be honest, a lot of them haven’t worked (surprisingly). This guy could be really good. Quick feet for his size, he dances away from tackles yet has the strength to also drive through contact and finish.

#94 Carolina (v/NE) — Matt Corral (QB, Ole Miss)
The Panthers have dealt their 2023 third rounder to get back into the draft. For me he was the best quarterback in the class. In the late third round, you can definitely justify taking him. The Panthers keep paying forward though to try and find a QB. They’re desperate. And given the price (this pick and the 2023 R3) presumably they’re out of the Baker Mayfield sweepstakes.

#95 Cincinnati — Zach Carter (DE, Florida)
I liked his tape and his Senior Bowl but his testing performance was so bad that I gave him a day three grade. He’s an inside/out rusher.

#96 Indianapolis (v/DEN) — Nick Cross (S, Maryland)
Another team giving up a 2023 third rounder to move back into the end of day two. It was a good decision. I really like Cross — he is such a tough, fast, versatile defender.

#97 Detroit — Kerby Joseph (S, Illinois)
Another classic Lions pick. They keep adding their types of guy — culture builders. Joseph plays with fire. He’s a magnet to the ball. I gave him a second round grade and had he tested, he might’ve gone in that range.

#98 Washington — Brian Robinson Jr (RB, Alabama)
He’s a tough runner who shot through contact and finished runs. He’s high-cut which is always a concern but he had a tremendous 2021 season.

#99 Cleveland — David Bell (WR, Purdue)
On tape I had him down as a second rounder. He looked tremendous. But his testing was so hideous, running in the 4.7’s at his size, that I moved him to round five.

#100 Arizona — Myjai Sanders (DE, Cincinnati)
The whole weight thing at the combine was weird and a bit off-putting. He doesn’t have the kind of frame you’d typically associate with a NFL rusher so he’ll need to be an outlier.

#101 New York Jets — Jeremy Ruckert (TE, Ohio State)
Without the injuries, he would’ve gone a lot earlier than this. There was talk early in the process that the Jets liked Ruckert. It’s another good pick by New York.

#102 Miami — Channing Tindall (LB, Georgia)
I wish the Seahawks would’ve found a way to move up from #109 to get Tindall. He’s a terrific, explosive player who absolutely flies to the ball. This is a tremendous pick for the Dolphins.

#103 Kansas City — Leo Chenal (LB, Wisconsin)
This is a bit of a disappointing end to the day, watching two quality linebackers come off the board. Not sure how easy it would’ve been to move up from #109 but it’s a shame they couldn’t find a way to add one of Tindall or Chenal.

#104 LA Rams — Logan Bruss (G, Wisconsin)
Sheesh, it’s hard seeing these guys come off the board. The last four picks are really good players. I’m a big fan of Bruss. The Rams love kicking tackles inside to play guard and he’s a great fit for them. He’s explosive with a great short shuttle.

#105 San Francisco — Danny Gray (WR, SMU)
He’s super fast and Kyle Shanahan will find plenty of creative ways to use him.

  1. Blitzy the Clown says:

    New rule: if Baker Mayfield somehow ends up a Seahawk, there will be NO ‘at home with Baker’ at Lumen Field commercials

  2. Romeo A57 says:

    If the Seahawks draft Malik Willis in Round 2 I am going to jump into the Clackamas River. Almost everyone is mocking them to do take him.

  3. Old but Slow says:

    I am relieved that we did not trade up into the 1st to get a QB as was predicted by some. Disappointed that we did not go for an impact player in round one. Hopefully Cross will be good in the future.

  4. Coach says:

    Which positions do you think we need to prioritize? If Mafe, Jurgens, Lucas are all there, who is a must have player for us? I see Jurgens and Lucas lasting longer on Mock drafts and if Williams is as good as Mafe, then it would be better to wait for edge also. I’m hoping we trade back to get more picks, but still get foundational pieces later in the 2nd and 3rd. Is this doable?

    54 Jurgens C
    55 Lucas RT after trade back
    72 Tindall LB
    100 Williams Edge (from trade back)
    101 Pierce RB
    109 McCollum CB

    If we could pull that off, I think it would be a great start to the rebuild! I don’t know if Tindall will last to 72, Williams to 100, or Pierce to 101 though! If not, maybe we wait on center and take Zach Tom at 109?

    Thoughts?

    Go Hawks!

  5. 12th chuck says:

    I hope the first pick will be a center, then d line/edge, but I doubt that’ll happen, and we see pc/js fall into their old ways and outsmart themselves

    • Peter says:

      As long as they steer clear of WR, S, and QB I’m going to okay.

      Now watch it be Christian Watson. Nick Cross. And a trade back into the second for Corral.

  6. Max Morrison says:

    Pumped to get 2 impact players today. Personally I’d love another O Lineman and one of the top RBs hopefully with a trade down. Yes we won’t have improved the D. But I think if we pair Cross with another addition on the O line and have Hall/Penny running behind it. It would be progress in the right direction.

  7. SoCal12 says:

    Here we go. These will be the interesting rounds.

  8. Sea Mode says:

    Here’s to winning the draft today! 🥃 (Clynelish 14 tonight, a Coastal Highlands Single Malt Scotch)

    • Rob Staton says:

      Cheers all

      Good luck

      • Seahawkwalt says:

        Yes!
        Cheers everyone!!!
        Let’s go Hawks!

      • Mexican Hawk says:

        Salud amigos! Can’t have it all, focus on creating a great unit! Hopefully OLine, bookend tackles would be something (Abraham please if not Jurgens to fix the ever lingering Unger issue).

        With the other pick would prefer to go D, but if they believe in Ridder or Corral so be it. At least they did Did not trade up to late first. Swing at it every year until they get it.

        So much talent left, go get it. Create an identity as you have mentioned Rob!

  9. CaptainJack says:

    OK… I’ll be happy with pretty much anyone as long as it’s not a qb. Lets go.

  10. Scot04 says:

    Hope the rumors of us trying to trade up are not true.

  11. Sea Mode says:

    Just a gut feeling heading into these two picks: just like the big hole at LT was a huge tell for their draft intentions last night, tonight our remaining biggest holes are RT and LB. Lucky for us, the talent might actually align with our needs: Abe Lucas + Channing Tindall

    • Peter says:

      I still think edge and LB are a tie for need.

      RT, LB ( inside or outside with apolgies to Barton and Nwossu) Edge ( rotational piece with nwossu. Or bigger end to rotate up front)

  12. SoCal12 says:

    I thought Chriss Angel died like a few years ago tbh.

  13. Wink says:

    Thoughts on taking Criss Angel with 40/41?

  14. Blitzy the Clown says:

    And away we go…

    Fingers crossed for a great night for the Seahawks!

    FWIW I think TB will take Travis Jones here to open the second round.

  15. Malanch says:

    The Charles Cross pick seems very solid, all things considered. Cross’s non-explosive testing is not nothing, but his movement skills appear very smooth, fluid, and natural in actual game action. Functional strength looks good, especially when recovering from bad sets. He’s a pup, and should be able to gird that lower body nicely with time in the weight room. Run blocking? Well, to be continued on that, but I don’t expect it to be a permanent hole in his game. And I’m not worried at all about Schneider not trading down before getting Cross; tradedowns were netting shite on Day One, and the risk of losing the last top LT on the board clearly was not justified.

  16. Robbie says:

    If some stud defense players are gone I’m coming around I’m taking Bryce Hall. I just want impact players!

  17. Sea Mode says:

    Huh. Becoming more of a trend across the league?

    Brady Henderson
    @BradyHenderson
    ·1h

    Interesting note on Cross: He’s his own agent. Said talks with ex-Mississippi St. teammates Jeffery Simmons and Tyre Phillips — both self-represented — helped him make that decision. “I just decided to bet on myself, bet on myself and save some money in the long run.”

    • SoCal12 says:

      I like the mentality. The results I feel like have been mixed though.

    • Peter says:

      Isn’t his contract already set by the league as a rookie?

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      I watched his introductory presser with PC and JS where he mentioned that.

      Carroll (or maybe Schneider) said Steve Hutchinson was in on the scouting of Cross and it sounds like they did a lot of diligence work on him. Like he was a legit target all along.

      • Peter says:

        If hutchinson gave the nod i’m feeling better.

        • Blitzy the Clown says:

          Cross presented himself well I think. Said he got into powerlifting a bit (in HS I think) which bodes well for him taking to a pro training system.

          The longer we get from the pick, the more I like it.

          He’s a good kid. Ridiculously young.

  18. CaptainJack says:

    Logan Hall. Tampa just made a great pick, continue to pump the dline with young talent.

  19. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Oh my! Logan Hall is more of a true 3T.

    For Seattle, I prefer Jones who can play anywhere up front in a 3-4.

  20. STTBM says:

    After a day to think about it, I’m calmer about the Cross pick. I hope he’s a perennial Pro Bowl-level player, but as usual with Seattle’s first pick, I’m rather doubtful.

    But they need to nail these next two picks.

  21. Seahawkwalt says:

    Green Bay Packers trade up. Please don’t be for Tindall

  22. DC says:

    Ok, at least the Hawks aren’t bizarrely and repeatedly trading picks to division rivals like the Vikings.

  23. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Great pick for GB. Fantastic pick. Damn

  24. SoCal12 says:

    Quay, Wyatt, and Watson is pretty good for Green Bay so far.

  25. Sea Mode says:

    Lol, Vikings really in the mood to help out all their division rivals.

  26. CaptainJack says:

    Hopefully Ridder goes here

  27. Seahawkwalt says:

    Vikings are stupid to trade with the Green Bay Packers

  28. Trevor says:

    Great pick for GB I thought Watson was a good as any WR that went in Rd #1 and the best possible replacement for Adams in this WR draft class.

  29. CaptainJack says:

    Wow… qbs really fallin down down down.

  30. Sten says:

    The Vikings are doing a pretty good job getting all these second rounders with that one #12 pick

  31. Peter says:

    Watson is such a fun player. For a different seahawks team I would have loved him.

  32. Trevor says:

    Jets have drafted 4 players with legit Pro Bowl potential. Legendary draft so far for Douglas and crew who schooled PC/JS.

  33. Seattle Person says:

    Jets are killing it!

  34. CaptainJack says:

    No one wants willis

  35. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Houston seriously rebuilding their defensive secondary between Stingley and Pitre.

  36. Sea Mode says:

    Does ATL take a QB here?

  37. Big Mike says:

    Pretty much all the guys that Rob was targeting here in the 2nd round are available still

  38. Seahawkwalt says:

    The second round is falling really well for us

  39. Scot04 says:

    Atlanta moves up ahead of us. QB?

  40. Wink says:

    Hell of a lot of pressure on Zach Wilson now. As much talent as they’re acquiring it’s hard to do much with a mediocre QB.

    • Peter says:

      At least this is what you do with a young qb give it all you can to work.

    • HOUSE says:

      Team setting up a young QB with talent around him. Saleh is getting opportunities to improve that team

  41. Sea Mode says:

    I’ve gotta slow down on this 1/2 kilo bag of cashews… I’m nervous/excited for our back to back picks!

  42. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Remember last night when we overloaded Rob’s ISP’s server?

  43. Scot04 says:

    So many trades already. I have a feeling we’ll be unable to tradecand bevpicking at 40 & 41

  44. SoCal12 says:

    No rush for QBs as pundits were hyping.

  45. HOUSE says:

    We’re on the clock…

  46. Seahawkwalt says:

    Crap.. liked Ebiketie

  47. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Works for me. I’ve never been enamored of Ebiketie.

  48. SoCal12 says:

    I feel like Nakobe would be a very Pete Carroll pick

  49. pdway says:

    back-to-back picks has a fantasy football snake draft feel to it….it’s fun….can’t recall us having had it before?

  50. Big Mike says:

    Yo Pete/John. NO QB!!

  51. KennyBadger says:

    Wow plenty of options left – trade back?

  52. Ukhawk says:

    Great news is that apart from Hall, I don’t think any of the picks so far are players our Hawks would’ve targeted

  53. Old Timer says:

    Been behind Mafe and Gordon with these two picks since last night.
    Really love to see the Hawks do that.

  54. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I hope we keep the focus on the trenches. Lucas and Mafe (or Williams). And maybe one after a modest trade down if possible please.

    What’s your hope?

  55. Scot04 says:

    Really hoping we’re able to get a good offer to trade down

  56. Veryal says:

    Lucas and a small trade down here please

  57. Gaux Hawks says:

    …pick of the litter, and take two!

  58. CaptainJack says:

    Good for Kyler.

  59. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Solid pick for da Bears.

  60. NOOOOOOO!!!! Not Gordon!

  61. KD says:

    Jurgens please!

  62. Palatypus says:

    Prepare to suffer.

    Carpe Inconcinnus!

  63. cha says:

    Seahawks will let the clock run out just for fun.

  64. Travis Jones
    Lucas
    Jurgens
    Booth
    Walker
    Tindall
    Anderson

  65. 206 says:

    ESPN won’t shut the fuck up about QBs

  66. CaptainJack says:

    Awesome value. great f*cking pick. Love it.

  67. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Not bad. Not bad at all.

  68. Ulsterman says:

    Mafe, nice pick

  69. SoCal12 says:

    Actually pretty jacked about Mafe. I feel like this is the round 2 pick that ends up being the gem for us usually.

  70. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I’m cool with this. The best EDGE left on the board imo

  71. pdway says:

    there’s our edge pick

  72. KD says:

    Mafe! I like it! Good pick

  73. YESSSSSSSS!!!!
    YES!!!
    YES!!!!
    YAAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!

  74. Group Captain Mandrake says:

    Nice pick by the Hawks. I like it.

  75. Boye Mafia says:

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssss !!!!!!!!

  76. Peter says:

    That’ll do pc/js, that’ll do…

  77. TomLPDX says:

    Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  78. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Welp I guess 33″ arms minimum for a DL is out

  79. bmseattle says:

    thank goodness

  80. Jabroni-DC says:

    LOVE #41!!!

  81. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Was hoping for Lucas, but ok.

    Btw, for me Mafe >>> Williams

  82. CaptainJack says:

    not a fan of a walker pick. ugh LOVE the Mafe pickup

  83. dand393 says:

    Wow so excited for walker love these 2 picks

  84. TomLPDX says:

    Kennith Walker…WOW!

  85. Hawkster says:

    actually going to take two picks in a row??

  86. Big Mike says:

    2 just outstanding pics in a row!

  87. KD says:

    And now Walker! Would have prefered Jurgens, but I really like this pick

  88. Blitzy the Clown says:

    FWIW I’ve always thought Walker was RB1 in CFB last season.

  89. SoCal12 says:

    Oh man, Kenneth in a Seahawks offense is gonna be juicy.

  90. Robbie says:

    Oh I’m hyped!!!!!!!!!

  91. Ulsterman says:

    Just glad no QB

  92. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Cross
    Mafe
    Walker II

    Not bad Seattle. Not bad at all.

  93. Sea Mode says:

    I like the picks!

  94. Rokas says:

    Well….at least not a QB, but i don’t like the second pick.

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      I would have preferred Lucas or Jurgens, but I can’t complain. There’s a good argument that Walker is the top RB in this draft.

      • Rokas says:

        Yeah, even if he is a top RB, i would much rather have a 6th or 7th linemen, offensive or defensive. Because you can find a RB in Walmart, but you can’t find a linemen there. Sigh. Hope he turns out to be special. It seems that Carson is about done unfortunately.

  95. pdway says:

    man, it’s fun to have draft picks….

    seems like two impact guys for us right there

  96. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    I can’t believe they didn’t screw it up! Fantastic! I’m dancing around my den, spilling my beer!

  97. Sneekes says:

    Such a relief that, two decent picks.

  98. Group Captain Mandrake says:

    I was hoping they’d wait until the third to get an RB, but I can’t really argue with the pick. Does this spell the end of Chris Carson?

  99. Mark H says:

    I’m feeling a lot better about our draft now that round 2 is over

  100. KennyBadger says:

    I like foundation building. Will Levis at 72?

  101. Hawkster says:

    Walker was on my very short list, along with Mafe.
    Sure, want some LB et, but I am good with those two picks. Those are football player.

    I have not googled a pick yet :))

    • Peter says:

      This is hands down rob’s all time great draft work. Always detailed this year killed it

  102. Peter says:

    There’s still a lot of good names and some awesome players that will be available in the third.

    Love these picks but still room to get more excited.

  103. Canadian Hawk says:

    Fantastic picks.

    Well done JS/PC.

    Linebacker or CB next please.

  104. Trevor says:

    The Hawks added two really good football players in Mafe and Walker. Was hoping for Jurgens or Lucas but hard to complain about those two picks. Seems like they were BPA type picks.

  105. JLemere says:

    Will Cam Jurgens last to pick #72?

  106. Henry Taylor says:

    I Love the Mafe pick, so so on Walker. Just didn’t do it for me like Breece, I’d prefer another defender or a ol. But all good in the whole.

  107. Allen M. says:

    I moved Cross & Mafe this offseason many times and wow, stumbled into a great young RB, too now. Speed, Speed, and more speed on this offense now.

  108. Jabroni-DC says:

    They’ve really addressed 3 huge needs with the first 3 picks. Like them all but LOVE Walker III. “I’m pumped!”

    Not to mention getting a pick correct.

  109. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I don’t know about you guys but I’m pretty stoked so far.

  110. HawksGal says:

    Seahawks for once, making great picks! Love both these picks.

    Now, CB or Centre with 72. Still like Zach Tom and Jalyn Armor Davis….
    WOW, super stoked.

    Go Hawks!

  111. STTBM says:

    Would have preferred Abe Lucas to Walker but….no QB so it’s alright.

    Dude is little though–guess we’re going into the season with no real backup to Penny? That seems risky ..

    • Group Captain Mandrake says:

      He’s a bit short, but I would not say little when he weighs 211. That right there is a bowling ball of a man.

  112. pdway says:

    and….we didn’t double-clutch and pick a QB.

    would have also liked one of those LB’s to pair w Brooks – but maybe we find him in R3.

  113. Scot04 says:

    Hard not to like this. Drew Lock liking it.

  114. Gross MaToast says:

    Alright, those were really good picks.

  115. God of Thunder says:

    Hall is 5-11, and 217. Walker is 5-11 and 211 … not a lot of difference. I prefer big bruising backs but Walker has serious talent!

  116. MoBo says:

    The only bad thing with these two picks is that we don’t have the next 5 picks. Good work and no complaining.
    Solid picks. Mafe looked fantastic in the senior bowl and brings good tools. And Walker is the RB you can rely on.
    Carson will be cut, Walker and Penny will be a good Combo.
    Hope a stud center or lb will fall to round 3.

  117. STTBM says:

    Walker over Tindall too?! They like Cody Barton more than I do…

  118. Trevor says:

    Rob looks like the league rated the QBs similar to you based on their fall.

  119. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Give me Tindall at 72 and I’ll be over the moon.

    • HawksGal says:

      Wow, you think he will fall that far? That would be an incredible first 4 picks if he did.

  120. Poli says:

    Was hoping for Andrew Booth or Travis Jones instead of a RB 😞

  121. Rob Staton says:

    I’d try and trade back into R2

    So much talent out there

  122. SoCal12 says:

    Really curious how far QBs are going to fall. Round 3 reports coming true it seems.

  123. Blitzy the Clown says:

    The draft is getting a little Vegas 😂

  124. Sea Mode says:

    Holy crap who is that dude doing everything but announce the vikings pick?

    • Starhawk29 says:

      Ed Marinaro. Former player (for all of 5-6 years). Also famous for being the coacoach on the TV show Blue Mountain State

  125. CaptainJack says:

    Walker pick makes me sad, probably means Chris Carson is done.

  126. 740i says:

    JS needs to start working the phones and trade up

  127. DavidinBellingham says:

    Rob, you must like the Boye Mafe pick- I remember you liking him as a prospect!

  128. Seattle Person says:

    This is a great start to the draft! All of these moves made sense…What’s going on?

    I have to think LB is next unless they see a OL that they like.

  129. Ishmael says:

    Would have been nice to grab Lucas or Jurgens, but hard to complain too much. Surely they won’t both last to R3? Feels like the first draft in about five years that the Seattle draft hasn’t been a complete meme.

  130. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I really like Wan’Dale Robinson. You want suddenness in your WR and he is sudden. Nice pick by the Giants

  131. SoCal12 says:

    I wonder if Schneider has more authority now. These picks certainly aren’t very Petey minus maybe Kenneth.

  132. MattyB says:

    Great picks…

  133. Jabroni-DC says:

    LB, OL, CB or possibly Corral if he’s there in the 3rd. Still gonna have a choice of studs.

    Would you trade a 2023 2nd to get another 3rd this year?

    • Ketch says:

      Nope. Two year plan. I WOULD trade a 3rd this year for a 2nd next year. But not the other way round.

  134. pdway says:

    WRs: DK/Lockett/Eskridge
    RBs: Penny/Walker
    TE: Fant

    pretty nice skill position firepower set up for the next QB….

    • Jordan says:

      Plus the 21 year old left tackle.

      Setting up a very favourable situation for the QB of the future when they arrive.

  135. cha says:

    Seahawks Twitter is crying salty tears right now.

    “We don’t need a running back!”

    It’s like they have been in a coma the last 3 years.

  136. Montanamike says:

    Iwould love Jurgins, Tindall and that kicker, its harsh listening about QB enough₩@&%₩:

  137. Sea Mode says:

    Think it would cost too much to trade back into R2, but maybe with one of our R5 picks we could move up to the top of R3 to catch someone who falls through the cracks.

  138. GoHawksDani says:

    I like those picks! Only issue that I’d like an LB, CB, OC and maybe even an RT and we only have #72 today. I think #72 will be an LB. I think they feel that’s our biggest hole

  139. Ishmael says:

    Have to think about using one of the fifth round picks to try trade up from 72 right? Tindall, Lucas, Jurgens, Jones, Williams, Ojabo?

  140. Mark says:

    Ravens prob grab Ojabo with their pick

  141. Hawkdawg says:

    How does Mafe compare to Sam Williams? This is a solid, sensible pick in any event. Rush looks better now…

    • Big Mike says:

      Rush ALWAYS looked good. Great fucking band!

      🙂

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      I’ll try…

      There’s no denying Williams’s athleticism and upside. He’s almost prototypical. But at the moment, Mafe is by far the more polished pass rusher. And Mafe’s no slouch athlete either.

    • Seattle Person says:

      Mafe has more bend around the corner. He also uses his hands better.

  142. GoHawksDani says:

    Walker: most missed tackles, most yards after contact. Works for me! He seems like a true RB1…please, please, please not get injured!

  143. chet380 says:

    is this the Rob Staton Rd 2 live blog? If not, website?

  144. seaspunj says:

    extremely happy we got a pass rusher and a true RB1 that can carry the load

    also MORE happy no QB was taken maybe PCJS wont draft a QB until day 3 picks which is fine by me

    I want to keep adding starters or potential starters and rebuild that Dee identity with a strong run game

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Let’s hope Walker lights a competitive fire in Penny’s belly. Can you imagine our rushing attack if they push each other to both be legit #1s?

    • seaspunj says:

      also if Seahawks can get one of ILB Channing Tindall Tackle Abraham Lucas or Cameron Jurgens in the 3rd I am super happy

  145. CaptainJack says:

    Taking Ojabo there is the most ravens pick I can think of.

  146. Jordan says:

    Could be a handful of quality off ball lbers left for the Hawks

  147. TomLPDX says:

    Ravens…amazing. Ojabo

    • Big Mike says:

      I thought the same. Franchise is badass on draft day.

      • CaptainJack says:

        I think their drafting is a tad overrated. They just take whoever gets rated highly earlier in the process but falls. Sometimes that’s a good strategy. But i think it could backfire, (those players fall for, reasons)… they’lll essentially have to redshirt Ojabo where as Mafe can play right away. Kyle Hamilton’s speed could be a problem in pass coverage. Linderbaum is tiny for an nfl center.

      • pdway says:

        I guess…got them all of 8 wins last year though…

        • God of Thunder says:

          Part of that is their QB, I think. He’s great at some things (running)… But…

  148. CaptainJack says:

    Texans seem determined to reach on every single pick. Metchie over Pickens? meh…

  149. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Solid pick for the Lions. Going big at the DE position this year.

  150. AlaskaHawk says:

    I like the picks so far. All of them could be starting this year. Maybe Pete will finally strike drafting gold.

  151. CaptainJack says:

    Paschal to Detroit… great player, a tad early.

    I really thought they could take Willis.

  152. Bankhawk says:

    Over the moon with these picks! Am I on safe ground in saying that Walker, being closer in running style and athleticism to Penny than to Carson give us a slightly clearer road map as to how the Waldron offense might start to take shape?
    I like that Hutch seems to have given a stamp of approval on Cross.
    Now time to go heavy on D and thus fulfill whatever compact the team made with Desai to get him on board!
    But I really want Lucas, and I want out ‘Center of the future’, too!

    • Tim says:

      You know who I got reminded of when looking at Walker’s highlights?

      Some of the way that he moved through traffic reminded me of what I remember seeing from Shaun Alexander. From way back when, I just remember seeing Shaun gash defenses with small moves that made them miss.

      It’s interesting to me that they drafted a guy who’s got the ability to be bruising, but whose highlights aren’t built around it.

      (Any better comps than Shaun from persons who do more film study than I ever will?)

      Agreed / I want a Center of the Future as well. Let’s hope they rock Round 3.

  153. MontanaMike says:

    We already have 2 backup QB’s

  154. Sea Mode says:

    Jump cut to get defender off-balance, run through contact, breakaway speed. Outstanding combo, easy Seahawks projection.

    Kenneth Walker III – Heisman Highlights ᴴᴰ
    https://youtu.be/op8F_6HyR1g

  155. Scot04 says:

    Seahawks seem more willing to go outside their comfort zone. Less explosive LT, shorter armed edge, and a RB shorter than their norm.
    Looks like they’re finally just picking good players. Hoping for anothe0r pleasant surprise in the 3rd.

  156. Jabroni-DC says:

    Zack Tom could spend a year at G before sliding in to the starting C role. Or… He could just bump Blythe for the 2nd year in a row.

    Just sayin…

  157. Hawkster says:

    Like the trade into 2 idea, but so many holes and so many good players available,, somebody will fall. Let fate decide. Lucas, Jurgens, Tom, Tindal, lots of other LB, I like Muma, then the CBs, Taylor-Britt, Mathis, Armor-Davis … stay the course, let the draft come to you.

  158. Hawkster says:

    Really liked Paschal, would have been ok at 40/41 if things went to crap and other faves were gone.

  159. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Pretty shocked Mathis went before Jones. More like gobsmacked.

  160. JimN says:

    Think we are well on our way in this rebuild. Getting as much done this year as we can. Indeed a LB and’/ or another OL. Intriguing to think that we could definitely move up if one of their guys is in range. Maybe a corner they have been watching. All in all, 2023 might be primed for a QB (is Lock doesn’t turn out like we want….). So happy they didn’t play the QB game. IN fact, the entire NFL is validating Rob’s position from 3 months ago that these QB’s are no better than at least 3rd rounders….But at least Pittsburgh got their guy they could probably have gotten 2 rounds later!

  161. CaptainJack says:

    Phidarian Mathis is a name I am not familiar with.

    I wonder why Travis Jones is falling…

  162. SoCal12 says:

    All the Linebackers are still left. I wonder if it’s a game of chicken right now and every team is waiting for value.

    • JD says:

      I was just thinking about that. I’m sure one goes and there will be a run but I bet there will be a great one still there at 72

      • Jabroni-DC says:

        So Taylor, Uwosu & Mafe are OLB. Brooks is one starter at ILB. So who is the best guy to beat out Barton?

        Damone Clark in the 4th round?

    • Jordan says:

      Feels like they got the order right re: RB then off ball linebacker; rather than the inverse.

      Pretty big cliff after Walker. Whereas Chenal, Dean, Harris, Andersen, Muma, Clark, Tindall all still available.

      • JD says:

        Yep. We liked Pierce and White but they seemed like Rd3 compared to Hall and Walker a whole round better. There are 9 LB’s left that have a Rd 3 and above grade on Rob’s board.

  163. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Da Bears have made two solid picks so far

  164. Jabroni-DC says:

    Is Rob on a live broadcast somewhere?

    Listening to Pauline in one ear & following here. His running mate won’t shut his yap about quarterbacks.

  165. Ryan says:

    Was really hoping for Lucas/Ebiketie tonight. Fine with the Mafe pick (after Ebiketie was gone), just don’t think that RB is a foundational position in a rebuild, seems more like a final piece you add after you’ve built the rest of the team out. But let’s hope for the best. Go Hawks.

    • Jordan says:

      Going rb in th the first during a rebuild would be no good. Great value where they got Walker though, before a massive cliff.

  166. Brik says:

    I’m liking how this draft is playing out, so far

  167. Henry Taylor says:

    It is getting heated on Seahawks twitter about them taking a RB. I wouldn’t have taken him, but is it weird this makes me like it more?

    • Sea Mode says:

      Not weird at all.

      But why wouldn’t you have taken him? Carson is all but retired. Penny oft injured. It was a huge need, especially to help out a young QB.

      • Henry Taylor says:

        I’d have preferred to keep adding to the defence. I’d have been all over Breece Hall, just not as big on Walker (so player eval not ideological).

    • SoCal12 says:

      It is really annoying how much ESPN hyped up Malik Willis and now twitterites got worked into a tizzy. Do they not notice how no one is buying in on QBs?

    • Big Mike says:

      Ask them if the 9ers got to a Super Bowl and the NFCCG 2 out of 3 years cuz Jimmy G was their QB or maybe just maybe because their running game and D carried him?

    • Bankhawk says:

      The appropriate response to ‘the Twitterati’ is to kick back (with a drink?) and merely observe their consternation and chortle.
      Anyone willing to go into a season depending on a bruiser with serious spinal issues and the NFL equivalent of a ‘one-hit-wonder’ at rb is not someone to be taken too seriously. 😂

  168. Sea Mode says:

    OMG, he has to be the softest spoken player I have ever heard, complete opposite of his on the field persona!

      Not really a Sherm or Baldwin kind of guy, but he seems like a nice human being. I think Lockett and him will be friends 😀

    • Kyle says:

      Barry Sanders was also really soft spoken.

  169. Rob Staton says:

    Chris Simms loved Kenneth Walker BTW

    Worth watching his review of the player:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLGPBM5hDeY

  170. Bankhawk says:

    Stay on the current trajectory and our guys just might have them an A or A- graded draft overall on their hands!
    But miles to go before we sleep!

  171. Ashish says:

    Double dip on OT Lucas tradeup ?

  172. Derek says:

    You know what makes the Kenneth Walker III pick even better?

    All the Seahawks Twitter fans that loved the Cross pick and spewed their venom at any skepticism yesterday are now crying about taking a RB so early.

    Apparently now the ‘Hawks don’t know what they’re doing all of a sudden LOL

    Inject that irony straight into my veins.

    Cheers!

    • Big Mike says:

      I don’t get why people waste their time with those douchebags. They don’t know anymore football than a whole bunch of us.

  173. JimN says:

    Surprised that we didn’t trade back on 41. But i like the pick! A real need, as i don’t think Carson is right at all. Interesting that there are very few trades? Seems like teams are staying put more than normal? Or just my own observation?

  174. Seattle Person says:

    Someone is going to get a steal in Jalyn Armour Davis.

  175. Tim M. says:

    Anyone able to give a quick scouting report and pro comp. for Kenneth Walker? I like the pick because we need an RB to pair with Penny. I was so focused on D. Pearce I don’t really know too much about Walker! Lol

  176. GoHawksDani says:

    Watched Kenneth’s highlights…how many 3+ TD games do that man have??? It’s crazy.
    And while total different running style, I saw somewhat similar to the beastquake. The way he shake off arm tackles. Total different than Marshawn but still has some of that “you won’t do nothing with some weak arm tackles” quality of his runs. Pretty fast and decisive too. Doesn’t seem like a really punishing runner but ohh man pls do a 2RB set with him and Penny

  177. Walker was my Favorite runner in the Draft so pumped we got him He Plays Big in big games

    just watch him Vs Vaunted Mich

  178. Nick L says:

    Hilarious to watch Seahawks twitter melt down over them not taking a QB with one of those two picks. I guess the fact that the entire league is passing on these QBs is not clicking with them — they aren’t very good! Thanks Rob for leading us in the right direction and previewing these two new Seahawks! I think Walker is going to be a ton of fun to watch.

  179. Silly Billy says:

    Watching all these LBs and QBs slip is making me very excited for 72….

    The Seahawks are so predictable. I get why they drafted a RB, I just deeply disagree with the decision.

  188. Sten says:

    I’m so happy all these wide receivers are going off the board.

  189. samprassultanofswat says:

    I am JACKED about these Maye and Walker. Now I don’t feel so bad for the Cross pick. Actually I feel a lot better NOW about taking Cross. You could actually make the case that OT, DE and RB(besides QB) were the Hawks biggest needs. I am also VERY HAPPY 😊 the Hawks have NOT taking a QB with their first three picks. I am really happy with these pucks. If I had my choice no QB until the 5th round (at the earliest).

  190. Brik says:

    Pick 72 is so far away. I was hoping Jurgens was gonna fall but there is still plenty available right now. Might have another tackle drop or one of those LBs. If not then we could have a chance to take another 3rd round flyer on QB. Will history repeat?

  191. Zach Tom
    Troy Anderson
    Abraham Lucas
    Tindall
    Chenall
    Jones

    Plenty of options left with 22 picks to go

  192. Sea Mode says:

    Man, teams are buying WR lottery tickets like there’s no tomorrow.

  193. pdway says:

    maybe I missed it – but have we talked enough about how crazily the Cards overpaid for Hollywood Brown?

    • Brik says:

      Not really. He was in a run first offense where Lamar wasn’t the guy to get him 1000 yards. They gave up a mid-late 1st for a 3rd and a guy who average 800 yards receiving and may get better.

      • pdway says:

        Seems like a 1st round pick is way too high for a guy who isn’t in the top 20 WR’s in the league…and averaged 11 ypc last year. Seems like a 3rd round value to me.

        • Brik says:

          You’re either undervaluing Hollywood’s production or you’re overvaluing the 23rd pick and completely ignoring that they also got a 3rd back. The point trade chart puts that at around the 35th overall pick. It’s nothing like what the Vikings have done.

    • mtpgod says:

      Still much better than resigning Kirk for starting qb money.

  194. Sea Mode says:

    Ooh, Cards get Trey McBride. Hope whoever we pick at LB can cover…

  195. SoCal12 says:

    Kind of wonder if Nakobe Dean’s medicals are pretty serious. The no testing and Georgia being awkward about it are kind of flags.

    • God of Thunder says:

      Dean is too small for my liking anyhow. (lol now watch him fall and we pick him at 72)

  196. Troy says:

    Crazy such a good LB class has dropped this far; dare I dream the hawks grab one with their 3rd?

  197. Rokas says:

    Of course Dallas always gets the bad boys…

  198. Sea Mode says:

    Dang, Cowboys actually pick a great pick for their team (Sam Williams)

  199. Gary says:

    Linderbaum, Strange, Jurgens all off the board – are we stuck with another year of Pocic at C?

  200. CaptainJack says:

    I’d trade up here for Travis Jones here

  201. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Just watched your quick reaction video and all I could think of was Trent Richardson 😂

    So back off Walker haters! Kenneth ain’t no Trent!

    And the other thing I thought was that although Seattle have committed the resources necessary to be run dominant, they won’t be the same kind of run dominant team they’ve been/tried to be in the past.

    Penny and Walker are similar runners, more slicer/glider/strider, as opposed to the overly physical style of Lynch, Rawls and Carson.

  202. Sea Mode says:

    Another big fan:

    Brock Huard
    @BrockHuard
    ·1h

    YES!!!

    Kenneth Walker is my Russell Wilson & Tyler Lockett over the last decade. Just simply one of my favorite players in all of college football.

    Look MSU Coach Mel Tucker in the eyes, as I did a few times, & ask him about Walker & you’ll know why SEA made this pick

  203. Big Mike says:

    Damn I wanted Troy Anderson because he’s from Montana St.

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Yeah that sucks he’s one of my top 2 LBs

      Btw you’re right about Lynch. He could juke a mofo out his jockstrap

    • Tbone says:

      Ditto! He will be around a long time!

    • STTBM says:

      I wanted him because he’s a stud, but also because he’s a fellow Montanan. I’m sure Carrol liked him, he can do anything. Great get for Atlanta!

  204. Rob Staton says:

    Feel like I/we nailed the QB eval this year

    So let’s finish the job with Will Levis next year

  205. Sea Mode says:

    ATL takes Troy Andersen. Could this kick off a run on LBs?

  206. Bankhawk says:

    One of my fondest memories of early Hawkdom was of the ’83 Seahawks when newly anointed coach “The Chukker” used his 1st rounder on Penn State phenom Curt Warner!
    They dumped the hated rivals, The Broncos out of the playoffs that year behind Warner’ s electric running style.
    I fancy that I catch echoes of that experience as I watch Walker III’s MSU tape!

    • ska says:

      I thought the exact same thing as I watched Walker’s explosive cuts, made me cringe remembering Curt Warner blowing out his knee untouched during a cutback. Time to go watch some old highlights!

  207. Rob Staton says:

    Where’s that guy who gave me a load of grief for saying Nakobe Dean could last to R3? 🙂

  208. Sea Mode says:

    We are now coming into range where our higher R5 pick could be enough for us to move up.

  209. Sea Mode says:

    Wow. Ed Ingram in R2. Really stood out to me at the Combine, but I didn’t think he would go that high.

  210. Trevor says:

    Hawks Big Board Day 2 best remaining after pick 60

    Travis Jones – DT UCON
    Abraham Lucas – RT Wash St
    Channing Tindall – LB Georgia
    Leo Chenel – LB Wisc
    Kevin Austin – Wr ND
    Zach Tom – G Wake Forrest

  211. Hawk Mock says:

    Hoping Lucas or Tindall

  212. Henry Taylor says:

    Troy Anderson is the 2nd college QB taken in this draft

  213. God of Thunder says:

    One LB taken (Andersen). Maybe the run on LB starts now?

  214. Mark says:

    Got to think niners pick a safety or maybe a replacement for mcglinchy?

  215. CaptainJack says:

    haha

    cincy trying to snipe a guy they think shannahan likes?

  216. Sea Mode says:

    Kevin Austin Jr, Travis Jones, Channing Tindall, Abe Lucas all still there.

    Do we move up to get one or just wait it out 12 more picks?

  217. mtpgod says:

    Can we really get Chindall or Chanel or even Travis Jones in 3rd?

  218. STTBM says:

    Lol, good one!

  219. Jordan says:

    The opportunity cost at QB at 72 is still less than ideal; but a swing is now palatble imo.

    … And here come the off ball lbers

  220. Peter says:

    Stunned in a good way that so many names are still available that seattle could consider especially as teams start getting weird….stoked for the next pick!

  221. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Damn Cincy defense gonna be fierce next year

    • TomLPDX says:

      That was a good pick

      • Big Mike says:

        Couple people here liked him a lot.

        • Hawkster says:

          To me the Taylor-Britt window may have closed with the Cross pick, needed a trade back fr ammo, just too many needs. IOL, LB.

          • Seattle Person says:

            Honestly…I don’t like him as much. He is more of a Zone player and struggles in press. I was shocked he ran as fast as he did. His cover skills aren’t the best. He seems more like a Safety than CB.

            Players like Amour-Davis, Mathis, Marcus Jones are far more stickier in coverage.

    • Sea Mode says:

      That’s the aggressive way you address weaknesses on a contender: OL in FA and secondary in the draft.

  222. chet380 says:

    Gotta chuckle — Haws fans bitching about a RB many have ranked as No. 1 RB overall with their third pick.

    • Peter says:

      Hawk fans complaining about trying to get a good RB must not have ever heard of marshawn lynch….or Alexander….or warner

  223. Veryal says:

    Let’s gets Tindall or Lucas!!!

  224. Sea Mode says:

    Oh, look, San Francisco is going to participate in this draft…

  225. Nick says:

    Speaking Tindall into existence.

  226. Peter says:

    Sure. Opportunity cost of a qb in the third….or….a really good player that can actually add value

  227. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Oh thank god. I thought I was gonna hear ‘Channing Tindall’ and lose my mind.

  228. Big Mike says:

    Tindall would be a Georgia D player. We need one

  229. HawksGal says:

    Do we move up, Travis Jones, Tindell, Chenal?

    • Big Mike says:

      I don’t think we’re going to have to. I think someone worth waiting for will till be there……….Lucas, Tindall, Tom, etc.

      • HawksGal says:

        Sp error on Tindall, love me some Zach Tom, Travis Jones, Tindell, Chenal, and Jalyn Armor Davis! Too many beers celebrating the best draft I’ve seen in a long time!

    • Jabroni-DC says:

      Stay cool, let it come to you. Lots of good players left. Those 5th round picks are gold for this team.

  230. CaptainJack says:

    Meh pick by the 49ers

  231. Sea Mode says:

    Maybe DEN would like to move down to recoup a pick. Trade chart value would be perfect to use our first R5 to move up.

    Go get Abe Lucas or Tindall.

  232. Bobby54 says:

    I hate Drake going to the Niners

  233. Peter says:

    No hate on Corral….but maybe the gm didn’t say “you could go in the first round.” Instead said “you can go in the first round, anything’s possible.”

  234. Sea Mode says:

    Uh oh. Get him back on and talk some sense into him!

    Jeff Simmons
    @realjeffsimmons
    ·1h

    Cross and mafe was such a promising start but they can’t help themselves with the Rb pick. I really like Kenneth walker but it just makes zero sense for a rebuilding roster.

    • bmseattle says:

      I think it’s a valid perspective.
      RB’s are shooting stars… you need to be ready to compete when they are in their prime (which is typically the first 3-4 seasons of their career).
      He said he likes Walker, and I do too. but I get the idea that it’s “smarter” to build up the trenches and core of the team before getting a RB.

      • Big Mike says:

        But somebody has to take handoffs and I’ve seen enough of DJ Dallas and Travis Homer and Penny won’t stay healthy. He got a 2nd contract. Might as well take someone who can actually play instead of another DJ/Travis.

        • bmseattle says:

          Sure… maybe Pierce in round 3 or 4?
          Again… Walker is awesome.
          He just seems like a bit of a luxury pick at the top of round 2.

    • Seattle Person says:

      He like Walker. I think he’s saying he see’s more value selecting someone like Jurgens. Someone you can build with.

      I still like the pick. I think it’s a position that needed to sure up. They did it with one of the best RBs in the class.

    • Poli says:

      I agree with him. Seems strange to pick a RB so high with so many holes on a rebuilding roster. They also already have Penny and possibly Carson

    • Jabroni-DC says:

      The RB is the heartbeat of a Pete Carroll offense. You have to have a special one & they have to be healthy. Walker is going to change Jeff’s mind.

    • mtpgod says:

      Tough to say “makes zero sense,” to draft the top running back in the class in the 2nd round.

  235. Peter says:

    Good for Cook. Real solid player.

  236. awm says:

    Trade UO! Trade UP! Abe Lucas.

  237. DC says:

    Maybe he hates snow

  238. Big Mike says:

    Simms had Bonnito in his top 5 EDGE guys

  239. SoCal12 says:

    Nik Bonito is a great for Denver. Dudes gonna get some numbers on his sack sheet.

  240. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Don’t mind seeing picks like Bonitto with Mafe in our pocket

  241. Russell Wilson trade update:
    LT Charles Cross
    OLB Boye Mafe
    TE Noah Fant
    QB Drew Lock
    DE Shelby Harris
    2022 5th Rd TBD
    2023 1st Rd TBD
    2023 2nd Rd TBD

  242. Jordan says:

    Winfrey, Trav Jones, Lucas, Rainman, Tindall, Chenal, Muma… QB?

  243. Trevor says:

    If the Hawks draft Abraham Lucas at 72 they could come out of this draft with the OT spot set for the next 8-10 yrs after coming into the draft without an RT or LT pretty wild.

    Love some of the LB but if Lucas is there they need to run to the podium IMO.

    • DC says:

      Torn on this, I think they need to go LB here. They need to put some fire in the D

    • Veryal says:

      Agreed! There are still some very good LB and I would love Tindall but bookending the o-line with studs would be amazing

    • Big Mike says:

      Would LOVE it. He’s a Coug

      • DC says:

        I’m a Coug also and would love it, maybe I just want some dudes on D after watching the Peacock. Need some difference makers on that side.

    • MarkinSeattle says:

      I agree, it is hard to find good OT’s. I would take Lucas without a thought, it is easier to find good LB’s later. Would also be nice to get a good OL foundation and some experience before drafting a good QB next year. Obviously we will have a high pick because we still are talent deficient and we don’t have a decent QB.

  244. Lucas or Tindall???

  245. Rob Staton says:

    Us for months — ‘these QB’s are R3 types’

    NFL — all but Pickett available in R3

  246. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    Yikes. A salute to our brave military men and women is always due. Playing the cringe-inducing “God Bless the USA,” followed by “Born in the USA,” which itself is a criticism of post- Vietnam era veteran treatment is AWFUL.

    *end rant*

    • Big Mike says:

      Reagan tried to make Born In The USA something it isn’t a well. Bruce wasn’t happy from what I heard.

    • STTBM says:

      What’s really gross is NFL acts l>je they do this out of patriotism, but they get PAID. Gross set up, gross song, just wrong…

  247. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I’m afraid Corral will be available at 72 and Seattle won’t be able to help themselves, ignoring the other glaring needs, and ignoring the fact that Corral will have fallen to 72. Which doesn’t speak well for his prospects as a franchise QB.

  248. Jabroni-DC says:

    Leaning OL with this pick.

    LB in the 4th.
    CB in the 5th.

  249. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Here go the LBs

  250. Poli says:

    Travis Jones in the 3rd would be great

  251. DC says:

    It’s astonishing how much info and opinion Rob has on all these guys. How does he do it? Seriously don’t know why he hasn’t been picked up by an outlet in the states

  252. With so much talent still on the board, any value in dropping down to pick up another late rounder?

  253. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    4 more picks to go before we’re on the clock. Going to attempt to will Chenal or Tindall into existence.

    Who does everyone else have on their hit list?

    • Sea Mode says:

      Abe Lucas, Travis Jones

      • Big Mike says:

        Lucas first for me. Coug

      • Jabroni-DC says:

        Tom, Corral, Lucas

      • Thomas Wells says:

        We have so many holes just pick the best guy. Good news is lots of studs left. I would love Abraham Lucas RT. Get our bookend tackles for a decade. But I’d be down with Zach Tom at center, Nakobe dean/Channing tindall/Leo Chanal/chad Muma at LB, or Tariq woolen/jaylen armour-Davis at CB. Hell even Greg dulcich at TE. More than one will be available. The board continues to break our way on day 2

        • Thomas Wells says:

          There goes muma. Tindall still there! For me it’s him or Lucas. But I also have to admit that I’d be VERY excited about our pass rush if we add mafe and Chanal to Taylor and nwosu

    • WallaSean says:

      All of the others ,plus Nick Cross, Jaylen Armour-Davis

  254. Bankhawk says:

    Momentarily went over to ‘Real Hawk Talk’ instant reaction thread to see how they were taking it.
    Probably pretty representative of the bile I presume is being spewed on Twitter.
    Sometimes those guys seem okay. Today, not so much. Had to exit stage right after a few minutes (or throw up in my mouth). Which is to say, I do not see eye-to-eye with their crew. 😜

  255. THE MIZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!

  256. Sea Mode says:

    Liked Emerson. Probably not a fit for us in new scheme if we are going to play man. In our old scheme, he would have been perfect.

  257. KennyBadger says:

    I don’t like the space between our next 2 picks but goddamn there are good options to choose from.

  258. Sea Mode says:

    I wanna see a team get scared and trade up in front of us for a QB, then we don’t take one.

  259. Big Mike says:

    Bouncing boobs on NFLN. That’s never a bad thing

  260. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Whew that was close. Really like Chad Muma but at least he isn’t named Channing Tindall.

  261. Jabroni-DC says:

    So many great prospects left! 2 to go.

  262. DC says:

    Poor JAX fans. Solid player but they have other needs

  263. Big Mike says:

    Gotta be a LB for u, right?

  264. Tecmo Bowl says:

    Dean, Chenal, Jones

    Lucas, Tom

  265. Luca Brasi says:

    Give me Travis Jones!!

  266. Scot04 says:

    Lucas, Tindall, Jones

  267. Coach says:

    Tindall please! I want a piece of that Georgia D!!

  268. Watch it’ll be somebody we’ve never heard of lol

  269. TrenchWarfare says:

    Holy #$#$%!

    OL is set.

  270. seaspunj says:

    gotta be hyped

    Seahawks next!

    I hope we go for Lucas or Tindall

    I think QBs will fall to 4th

  271. HOUSE says:

    On the clock… who we taking?

  272. Sea Mode says:

    Holy cow, they’re all available to us.

    Travis Jones
    Channing Tindall
    Abe Lucas

  273. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    ON THE CLOCK!!!

    Here we go!

    Gimme a stud!

    No QBs!

  274. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I really wish Rich Eisen would just sftu about QBs already.

  275. TomLPDX says:

    Seahawks on the clock. Time for a commercial.

  276. Big Mike says:

    Oh gee, a commercial right b4 our pick. Yeah, that has never happened before.

  277. MarkinSeattle says:

    Sounding good at the third round, Rob is nailing the picks….

  278. bmseattle says:

    I think Lucas is the smarter pick, but predict it’ll be a LB

  279. Jabroni-DC says:

    Russ was selected at #75.

  280. Magmatizer says:

    Been a fan of James Roday Rodriguez since Psych. The pick 69 joke was too easy to pass up.

  281. Jabroni-DC says:

    FUCK Yah!!!

    What a draft!!

  282. SoCal12 says:

    Congrats to Rob for getting your man! You deserve this.

  283. DC says:

    So with this draft so far, JS is in charge right???!!!

    • Martinb says:

      Obviously SOMEONE got to Pete (JA???)and told him to keep his nose out of the draft. About time!!!!

  284. Dan Y says:

    ESPN: “Less than 1% chance Malik Willis would be available in the 3rd round.” You know–science!

  285. bmseattle says:

    Hell yes!

  286. Trevor says:

    Yesssssss!

    Lucas in the 3rd is one of the steaks of the draft. Hawks set at OT for the next decade if these guys workout as expected. Wow!

    JS no trade backs or bing cute. Just took the best players. Well done!

  287. Big Mike says:

    Couuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuug!!!!

  288. Blitzy the Clown says:

    YES!

  289. TomLPDX says:

    YES! WOW!

  290. Blitzy the Clown says:

    One helluva draft!

  291. seaspunj says:

    Best day 2 draft EVER

    I AM SO RELIEVED

  292. pdway says:

    finally…some potential cornerstone O-lineman. been a while.

  293. Thomas Wells says:

    WHAT A DRAFT!!!

  294. BA says:

    Wow, they’ve recovered really nicely since the Cross pick

  295. KD says:

    YESSSSSSSSSS SIR! Hawks are absolutely killing this draft! Very, very happy!

  296. Tbone says:

    Gonna be a great line next year!

  297. Sea Mode says:

    Let’s GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  298. YEAH BABYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

    LET’S GO!!!!!!!!

  299. bmseattle says:

    What amazing value!
    I can’t believe they did it!

  300. Mark says:

    A+. Loving this draft. Let’s go!

  301. Hawkdawg says:

    Wow. What happened to JS and Pete?? Great pick, again!

  302. Brett in AZ says:

    Home-effin-Run!

  303. GoHawksDani says:

    Without tipping the pick…SDB will be happy 😀

  304. Blitzy the Clown says:

    So that’s pretty much case closed on Duane Brown.

    We have our bookends for the next 5 years.

  305. DC says:

    Robs description of the pick is the best lol.

  306. One draft. Two potential cornerstone tackles. Fuckin’ stoked.

  307. Ishmael says:

    I feel like crying. What a draft.

  308. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    Lucas wasn’t my first choice but I’m damn glad to have him. If we can snag a quality starter at LB in Rd 4 (or by trading back up in Rd 3), I’ll be ecstatic.

  309. Trevor says:

    The Hawks have drafted 3 starters all who had Top 40 talent and 3 of the 4 at premium positions.

    A+ draft

  310. Gross MaToast says:

    I can’t believe what I’m seeing.

  311. Scot04 says:

    Pretty impressive. Guessing Pete had less input for this draft.
    Pretty great 1st 2days. 4 picks left

  312. Robbie says:

    I’m absolutely floored!!!! I’m sooooooo damn happy

  313. Henry Taylor says:

    Best pick of the draft???

  314. Peter says:

    Jumping john and joseph

    Unbelievable

  315. seaspunj says:

    sweet Ridder is off the board!

  316. pdway says:

    And two 1st and two 2nds next year – kinda had to trade Russell to break this team out of the funk it was in….so here we go. Feels like a solid start.

  317. TomLPDX says:

    Is there a center in the 4th round?

  318. Hawk Scott says:

    This is FUCKING fantastic!!!!!! Did PC/JS consult Rob before these picks in 2 & 3? FINALLY we don’t have those crazy picks where you have to search and search to see who the player was. Rob’s gotta be pumped for this one! LOVE IT!!! GO HAWKS!!!

  319. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I’m lmfao here

    You go ATL!

  320. KennyBadger says:

    We don’t need no stinking tackles!

    Well done Rob, I’m still intrigued by remaining talent…

  321. Big Mike says:

    We’ll still get a quality LB next pick.

  322. awm says:

    Goose bumps!!! Best draft EVER

  323. Tecmo Bowl says:

    Bookends! Yes!!! This draft is an A so far.

  324. Hawk Mock says:

    Trade up for Tindall and I’m freakin jacked and pumped for potentially a foundational draft!

    • seaspunj says:

      Tindall with this team would definitely solidify the identity of the new Dee

      I want the Seahawks dee to be the bullies again and we got a stud RB to go with 2 O linemen

      just stay patient and draft a QB next draft!

  325. Scot04 says:

    Rob, Love the double fist puch

  326. Bobby54 says:

    Wow, we actually did it. Amazing

  327. Seahawkwalt says:

    This is such an unbelievably great draft!!!! John Schneider must be doing all the drafting

  328. Jabroni-DC says:

    I’m not jealous of anyone else’s draft over ours at this point. We’re killing it!

  329. AlaskaHawk says:

    Time to celebrate !!!

  330. lil’stink says:

    So… between Curhan, Forsythe, and Haynes, is Gabe Jackson getting cut? Because that would free up $6.5 million. 🔥🔥🔥

  331. Isaac says:

    I’m unbelievably happy. This might be the best draft in 10 years. Shocking pre Wilson trade I thought we we’re screwed this year.

  332. Hawkster says:

    Couple of actual tackles, a stud running back, a legit edge.

    A complete failure to suck.

    72 was always Pierce for me, once they went Walker is was all about who would last till 72.

    • bmseattle says:

      this.
      Lucas and then Pierce would have made me happy.
      Getting Walker and still getting Lucas is incredible.

    I truly hope day 3 picks no picks are wasted. Truly believe the 4 picks can be all foundational pieces for the Seahawks REBUILD/RETOOL

    dont want a QB if Tindall is available for 4th round pick

  334. Sea Mode says:

    Can’t believe a Tackle of Lucas’ profile lasted to our R3 pick. Unbelievable.

  335. DC says:

    Hopefully a starting LB is there in the 4th.

    Next year we’ll need Will Levis, CB, S, WR and DT in the first 3 rounds

  336. Bobby54 says:

    Baker will have time throw

  337. JD says:

    I get the distinct impression that Jody told them to stop being cute with trading down and pick the best player on their board. The Team is better for it.

  338. Blitzy the Clown says:

    How long has it been since you felt this happy during the draft?

    Speaking of which, Lucas should quiet the Walker malcontents

  339. KSB says:

    Day 2 looks great!!

    Just wish we could add Tindall somehow. It would be icing on the cake.

  340. Leo says:

    Man can’t believe Travis Jones has fallen this far, just goes to show that NT is the most fungible spot in football

  341. Seahawk_Dan says:

    I love how after the Abraham pick all the announcers did was bitch that Seattle didn’t draft a QB and sounded so bored.

  342. L80 says:

    Just hit a Grand Salami with all the picks today. How can anyone possibly not like what was accomplished by the Hawks…..ECSTATIC, now if we can get Tindall or Chenal, it would be lip smackin good.

  343. AlaskaHawk says:

    Keep up the good drafting and Tom Brady will buy the team!

  344. HawksGal says:

    OMG!

    What a freaking incredible draft, you all must be happy now, the Seahawks nailed this darft!

    Woohoo….Go Hawks!

  345. mtpgod says:

    This draft just changed everything. If we get Tindall or Chanel in 4th (hell even move up to get one), it’s a goddamn wrap son!! Love this shit, so happy.

  346. GoHawksDani says:

    Great picks. Looking back, I don’t hate the Cross pick either.
    Cross and Lucas for the OL
    Walker as a weapon and Mafe for the passrush
    My only concern is that with so many weapons in the NFCW I don’t trust Barton or even Brooks or pretty much any of our CBs to hold them.
    I hope they’ll get a good LB and a CB. If they can, this will be an awesome cornerstone draft

    • Scot04 says:

      Surprisingly Barton did not look like a big drop off from Wagner in the games he started. They Definitely still need to add on Defense & have 4 picks left to address it

  347. Vin says:

    So so so happy for Rob and SDB, and Hawks of course. Finally, no overthinking or getting cute. If we land Tindal or Chennai in 4th, it’s game over. LOL. Go Hawks.

  348. B-Wags says:

    Bookend tackles, a dynamic edge and a BAMF running back! Very, very happy! Time to slip back into the 3rd and get Leo or Channing! Do it!

  349. CASE says:

    Rob – Is your source John Schneider by chance? Great job and thank you.

  350. Madmark says:

    I asked you about this happening. To let you all know my draft I just hit 2 of 3 picks today. Competion who starts at left tackle my bet is Lucas.

  351. Big Mike says:

    Of course the Ravens got Jones

    • Sea Mode says:

      Lol, it’s seriously just hilarious how good they are at sitting there and drafting studs all draft.

  352. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Bloody brilliant draft for the Ravens

  353. SpennyDunks says:

    Okay John and Pete reveal yourselfs, what do you post as on SBD??

    They are doing a great job of matching value and needs. Say what you want about Cross but most people had him ranked highly, I know the concerns of his athletic profile and playing in the air raid are legit but if you focus on what he can do rather than what he can’t, there is hope he can put it together.

    To get two bookends and a RB like Walker really solidifies 3 important spots on the OL. And to add Mafe to Taylor and Okwonu..

    We finally have a promising OL and pass rush, feels like those have been needs for so long.

  354. Vin says:

    Man, Ravens just KILLING IT!

  355. Eric says:

    Who would be worth it to the Seahawks to trade up from 4.4 into the late 3rd?

  356. Leo says:

    It’s so refreshing that they picked 3 linemen and a bad-ass running back, that’s how you rebuild an identity. They’re finally willing to take a chance at LB and commit to the trenches instead

  357. Kyle R says:

    As a Coug alum and Seahawks fan just have to say “Hell yes!”
    Also Damn, Baltimore is just killing it again and again.

  358. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I like Raimann to the Colts. I think he’ll do well there inside at OG, clearing running lanes for Taylor.

  359. Hawkster says:

    Tindall (was a big Muma fan)
    Percy Butler
    Damari Mathis or Armor-Davis
    Dominic Robinson or Michael Clemons
    Jake Ferguson.
    And wth with Kevin Austin?

  360. Tecmo Bowl says:

    Do we trade up to get one of these stud LBs? Dean, Chenal or Tindall would absolutely add a + to the A JS has earned thus far.

    109+153=44
    91=44

  361. STTBM says:

    With the money saved not overpaying Brown and Jackson, Seattle can afford to pay DK. Or go get Clowney and/or Addison…

    Oh yeah, thrilled about the Abe Lucas pick, but I’m greedy, still want Tindall, Armour-Britt, Michael Clemons….maybe Dameon Pierce?!

  362. samprassultanofswat says:

    Abraham Lucas. I don’t believe what I just saw. https://m.facebook.com/watch/?v=993350498111526&_rdr I don’t believe what I just saw. John Schneider is NAILING this draft. This is absolutely AWESOME!

    Value over Need.
    Don’t sleep on Drew Lock(Shelby Harris.

  363. KennyBadger says:

    Ravens FO bogarts SDB.

  364. KSB says:

    What would it cost the Hawks to trade up and draft a Tindall Or Chanel?

    Could we trade that Denver 2nd round pick next year and a 4th or 5th and land one of them?

  365. Jordan says:

    This process feels representative of something significant. Jodi giving personnel control to JS and his staff.

  366. Fantastic draft so far. I’m hoping Tindall lasts fantastic draft so far. Hope they get Tindall next. I am amazed they haven’t got overly cute and miss out on the impact players.

  367. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    Before the Rd 2 picks, I was certain that PCJS would gum up the works by drafting a QB with one of them.

    Before the Lucas pick, I was convinced they’d pass on all QBs in the draft and try to pick up Mayfield in a seller’s market, next week.

    After drafting Lucas, I’m actually believing they’re going to let Smith and Lock battle it out; “best man” wins.

    • HOUSE says:

      Exactly. This is 2011 all over again. Build the team Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst ran the team and Wilson drafted the following year

  368. samprassultanofswat says:

    Russell Wilson must be wondering why didn’t PC do this for me?

    BONUS: No WASTED pick on a QB.

    I hope Drew Lock wins the QB competition. If Lock wins he will be have plenty OFFENSIVE Firepower.

    I want to see what Drew Lock can do.

    I tell you what. After the Hawks took Cross I felt like switching teams. But now I am on cloud nine.

    No getting cute by trading down. Just go out and get your guy.

  369. Rob Staton says:

    Quick instant reaction video to the Abe Lucas pick:

    https://youtu.be/VQQUsuo_2ik

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Three cheers for Rob at 3am his time posting instant reactions brimming with enthusiasm and excitement!

      And three cheers for his family for putting up with it!

  370. Sea Mode says:

    Go get Kerby Joseph in R4 if he’s still there.

  371. Veryal says:

    Too bad Russ doesn’t use his TEs

    • Thomas Wells says:

      I literally laughed out loud at this pick for that exact reason. I just have a feeling russ struggles or gets hurt and we get two picks in the top ten next year. Certainly not hoping for that. Just a feeling

  372. Mark says:

    Would you go Winfrey or Tindall @109 if they are still there?

  373. KSB says:

    Ok just the Den 2nd rounder. Since we’re in rd 3. With the talent we’ve acquired. Was thinking we’re still in rd 2.

  374. SoCal12 says:

    Going to be fun to watch the media meltdown if Malik drops to Day 3.

  375. UP Hawk says:

    Hawks have had an incredible day 2

    That being said… I feel this should be Raven’s draft blog based on their selecting Rob’s favorites 🙂

  376. Ryan P says:

    Three best drafts so far:
    1. Jets
    2. Seahawks
    3 Ravens

    ????

  377. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Now that’s a close call. So glad Eagles took Dean and not Tindall.

  378. Big Mike says:

    “Georgia LB” I thought was gonna be Tindall to Philly. Good pick for them.
    Eagles, Ravens, Hawks having very good drafts. Must be a bird thing.

  379. Veryal says:

    Not cool announcing that as LB from Georgia. Glad it was dean and not tindall

  380. Trevor says:

    If the Lions and Titans pass in Willis he is likely there at 109. Do you take a flier or just take best CB or LB on the board?

    Tindall
    Austin Jr
    Chenel
    Willis
    Corral

    • 206 says:

      I wouldnt. We already have Lock who has proven he can win a game in the NFL and was graded similar.

  381. When do we pick next?

  382. clbradley17 says:

    Like to see them trade back into rd 3 to get Tindfall or Chenal

  383. Trevor says:

    Would love to see JS trade up and take Tindall. Would make this an epic day in Hawks draft history.

    • clbradley17 says:

      Great minds think alike. Use on of our 5s & a 2023 3rd or 4th. Need this year’s 4 for one of the other of the top 2-3 above or a cb. Has wr Kevin Austin been selected? Could also be a great choice in 4 or 5

  384. 206 says:

    Michael Clemons!! He’s THAT guy

    • clbradley17 says:

      Tomorrow could be a great day in this deep draft as well. Could get a good LB, CB & ZT for center on day 3. Also that guy Clemons, maybe Jack Coan in rd 7

  385. KennyBadger says:

    If mayfield cost you a bag of footballs would you do it or would you rather lose with potential and set up for a qb in 2023?

    • 206 says:

      I’d take Baker, big thing for me is if they eat a lot of the contact.

    • JimN says:

      Mayfield trade. 7th round pick and Cleveland eating 90% of the salary. After the draft, he will be let go. At least they get something. I’d be willing to take a flyer on that.

    • JD says:

      I’d avoid Baker and lose to set up 2023. He couldn’t win with a great Oline, running game and defense. If that’s our goal to build, why would we expect a different ceiling?

      • KennyBadger says:

        I’d like to give baker a shot if it cost little to nothing. But what if he’s just good enough to win an extra couple games?

  386. Andrew says:

    Just please, no QBs this draft… pick someone who can pan out. If this QB class had upside they’d have been drafted already

  387. Martinb says:

    It seems the reason the Ravens draft so well is they keep it simple and regardless of position they draft BPA. Maybe JS has the same philosophy but until this year, we haven’t seen it because of Pete?

    • 206 says:

      I gotta say, this draft sure feels different that the many years prior, and you gotta wonder, is this JS running the show instead of PC? Sure feels like it.

    • CaptainJack says:

      They literally just take whoever falls. It’s juvenile. Jones fell for a reason. If they are so great at drafting where are the recent superbowl rings?

  388. Big Mike says:

    Right spot for Willis to Tenn. 2 years to learn minimum.

  389. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Not sure there’s a better situation for Willis.

    If the Titans can get him to put it together, this could loom large down the road.

    But that’s a big if.

  390. Bankhawk says:

    If we cut Carson in the kindest but triftiest way possible, and cut Gabe Jackson-how much cash can we muster?
    If we get a late round kicker, how much does cutting Meyer add to the kitty.
    I guess what I’m saying, is once the shouting is all over from this weekend, what leeway will we have left to us for additional f/a moves.
    If anybody has any inkling as to UDFA targets, live to hear those too.

  391. 206 says:

    All those cameras is Willis face, that musta sucked

  392. Denver Hawker says:

    Weird draft for the Hawks.

    No trade backs.

    BPA.

    I love it.

  393. Sea Mode says:

    Wow, Raiders desperately need more draft picks. Get them on the phone and offer our R4 + R5 for #90.

    Draft Channing Tindall to cap off the best Seahawks draft day in a long time.

  394. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Love the trash talking

  395. Jabroni-DC says:

    We’re gonna need to jump Baltimore at #100 & Philly at #101 if we want Tindall unless we want to say;

    “Of course he went to…”

  396. Big Mike says:

    Marcus looks like he could still break off an 80 yarder

  397. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Marcus Allen is one of my all time favorite athletes

  398. Steve R says:

    They are drafting anyone at wide receiver now.

  399. CaptainJack says:

    Getting Lucas at that spot is good value. I would be content taking him at 41. Good work seahawks. We secured young bookend tackles and a 1st round talent pass rusher. Walker is icing on the cake.

  400. Forrest says:

    Time to trade up for Tindall and Logan Bruss. Move Bruss to guard to replace Gabe Jackson.

  401. Big Mike says:

    Oh look, the next 9ers 1000 yd back in Shanny’s system. Then hurt and never to be seen again……….

  402. Big Mike says:

    Panthers gonna take Corral

  403. Sea Mode says:

    Field Yates
    @FieldYates

    The Patriots trade: Pick 94

    The Panthers tease: Pick 137, a 2023 third-round pick

  404. Scot04 says:

    Crap. Great pickup for the 49rs

  405. KennyBadger says:

    TDP to SF? Wtf?

    Also is this the best draft ever in terms of so many teams filling needs?

    • CaptainJack says:

      that is a weird pick by san fran. probably will bust. good for us

    • SoCal12 says:

      Yeah I do feel like every team is doing well so far. Can’t really think of any team off the top of my head that’s been totally off the mark.

  406. Big Mike says:

    Well, not a surprise. They could well ruin him by pushing him in too soon.

  407. Seahawk_Dan says:

    Could Tindal make it to 109?

  408. Jabroni-DC says:

    If Tindall gets swiped would you consider Maryland S Nick Cross at #109?

  409. Trevor says:

    Have a bad feeling the Lions are going to take Tindall and kill my dreams of seeing him flying around for the Hawks. jS should just pull the trigger and trade up to nab him.

  410. Big Mike says:

    Browns have #99 upcoming.
    Hey Cleveland, we’ll take that pick to let you trade Baker to us. Oh, and btw, you’re picking up 90% of his salary.

    Happy to help.

  411. Patacc says:

    Back in the hunt for the NFC west title.

    • Jabroni-DC says:

      We’re best served losing a bunch of close, hard fought games next season. Show big improvement over the course of time & get primed for a QB run in the 2023 draft.

      Couple that with a dismal campaign from the Denver Broncos of course.

  412. Sea Mode says:

    Who’s this for? Colts usually draft well too.

    Doug Kyed
    @DougKyed

    The #Colts traded up with the Broncos to No. 96 overall.

    Indianapolis gave up 179 and a 2023 third-round pick.

  413. Old news but it floors me with the talent still left: Baltimore has 6!!! round 4 picks. They are gonna end with the best draft i think

  414. 206 says:

    I feel cracked out from this draft and I just NEED another PICK

  415. Trevor says:

    Lions passed on Tindall. If he gets past the Jets at 101 we have a shot but I think they nab him.

    If you’re mad at the Seahawks for taking a (special) RB, ask yourself what that backfield looks like after 2022 without Kenneth Walker III.

    And then be honest with yourself about what Seattle’s offense has looked like sans Marshawn, Carson, or a healthy Penny.

    • Pugs1 says:

      100% agree! A lot of the offense problems of the last six years can be directly related to injuries at the running back position.

  417. SoCal12 says:

    Surprised both Tindall and Chenal have lasted this long. Gotta think they are targets.

  418. WallaSean says:

    wouldn’t mind moving the 7th rounder just to get in front of the rest of the division

  419. Madmark says:

    I been a Cougar fan for along time. I’ve watch Abraham Lucas for 4 years and he’s a great left tackle. I actually get the feeling Rob excited by this pick. Honestly, we won Rob Seattle finally decided to address this OL. The center from Boston College at 153? I have 3 guys that has a chance. I old started,I started here 2010. Rob’ evaluation OL have always been great. I chased many OL with Rob but this is the pick that’s hit.

  420. Jabroni-DC says:

    Time to trade DK to Baltimore for their 6 4th round picks, haha.

  421. Chris says:

    Seahawks have done good being patient this draft. One of our guys will be there in the fourth round.

  422. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Really sucks not having any comp picks

  423. Erik says:

    The ravens have 6 round 4 picks!!!

  424. Jabroni-DC says:

    Another LB option is a draft & stash of LSU Damone Clark. His spinal fusion surgery is going to take a while to heal.

  425. Trevor says:

    Damn Dolphins! Wish the Hawks but the bullet to move up and nab him but that’s life.

  426. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Oh go to hell Miami

  427. Big Mike says:

    Chenal and Zach Tom still available

  428. Sea Mode says:

    That’s why you trade up for your guy. 😢

  429. Hawk Mock says:

    Nooooooo. Worst draft ever.

  430. HOUSE says:

    Tindall off the board to MIA. Damn…

  431. CaptainJack says:

    PAIN

  432. Sneekes says:

    Double damn

  433. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Oh ffs

  434. CaptainJack says:

    At least rams/ niners can’t draft him now

  435. Poli says:

    Ravens got Hamilton, Linderbaum, Ojabo, and Travis Jones…..

  436. Sea Mode says:

    Cody Barton it is…

  437. Scot04 says:

    Ouch. Those last two LB picks hurt

  438. CaptainJack says:

    They were both expected to go rounds 2/3. at least rams/ niners couldn’t get them

  439. HOUSE says:

    Damn you KC… Chenal is gone now too

  440. Nathan M says:

    Ouch! There go two in a row

  441. SoCal12 says:

    Damn tough back to back run. Dameone Clark might be someone Pete likes.

  442. Seahawkwalt says:

    At least niners and rams didn’t get Tindall or Chenal

  443. CaptainJack says:

    Good pick by LA rams

  444. Sneekes says:

    Perhaps the move is CB now. Try and plug LB via free agency somehow (not sure who)

  445. Hawk Mock says:

    Dang, 3 in a row I was hoping would fall to us.

  446. GoHawks5151 says:

    That sucks. But the going price was a pick this year and next year 3rd. I understand not wanting to pay that price

  447. Leo says:

    Sadly it looks like we will be in the warm embrace of Cody Barton next year

    • Jabroni-DC says:

      With our ground & pound offense bleeding out the clock next year Barton won’t have as much time on the field to look bad.

  448. Sea Mode says:

    It’s gotta be nice for them to pick right away at the beginning of each day, cause you can have your scenarios ready to go and know exactly who you are going to draft.

    I’d imagine Karl Scott pounding table for Amour Davis. Winfrey, Woolen have their appeal too. Who are some late LBs that people like?

  452. Bankhawk says:

    I kinda lean towards cutting Gabe Jackson and diverting any cap savings towards signing DK: is that feasible? It does sorta leave us light on a ‘leader/vet presence’ in the OL room.

    • Jabroni-DC says:

      We’ve got an experienced vet Center calling the shots. I’m all in with going young next year and letting them all gel together.

    • HOUSE says:

      I think he needs to be a post-June 1st trade to save money if I’m not mistaken. Cha is the cap expert

    • cha says:

      Unfortunately cutting him doesn’t bring any savings. They can trade him and realize a $6m savings but it’ll be not unlike baker mayfield. Why should anyone give up a pick for him when you’re going to cut him anyway?

      Which is ironic because that’s how the Seahawks acquired him in the first place.

  453. Tom or Clark for me

  454. Southpaw360 says:

    I want to double dip on a running back in round 4.

    Thanks Rob for all you do! Fantastic content!

  455. Scot04 says:

    While he coul be a boom or bust prospect; in round 4 to me Winfrey has too much upside to not take a shot. If he can become a consistent player he would seriously help Seattle’s interior pressure. Just unsure if he gets past both Tampa & Cleveland who both have needs at DT.
    He could one of the steals in this draft if he can become what he showed at the senior bowl & in glimpses during the season.
    Here’s hoping he gets to us so we can add to the Defensive trenches.

  456. For day 3 ROB I am thinking defense and maybe some Defense backs maybe Woolen? Or do you think maybe Winfrey? I am definitely thinking PETE screaming more defense guys.
