Live blog: 2019 NFL draft (first round)

Headlines

— The Seahawks trade down with the Packers, moving from #21 to #30
— They acquired two fourth round picks from Green Bay (#114, #118)
— They spent the #29 pick on TCU defensive end L.J. Collier
— Pick #30 was traded to the New York Giants for #132 & #142
— They now possess nine total picks

Welcome to the live blog, I’ll be posting thoughts on every pick as they come in. After the first round I’ll write a review and we’ll be recording a podcast.

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

#1 Arizona — Kyler Murray (QB, Oklahoma)
On January 3rd I wrote an article saying the Cardinals should take Kyler Murray first overall. He’s the most talented player in the draft. He has the same magic as Patrick Mahomes. The Cardinals needed to make the most of this pick and I believe they did. Now they need to try and get value for Josh Rosen.

#2 San Francisco — Nick Bosa (DE, Ohio State)
What makes Nick Bosa ‘special’? Simple. He’s 266lbs and ran a 4.14 short shuttle. That’s incredible agility to work the edge and it shows. Some players just look better than everyone else in college. Nick Bosa fits that category. He’s a complete defensive end and the NFC West just got a lot better with Bosa and Kyler Murray.

#3 New York Jets — Quinnen Williams (DT, Alabama)
It feels like a long time ago now but Williams absolutely destroyed the SEC in 2018. He was a one-man show some weeks. He was an absolute terror against LSU — a game where it’s often difficult to stand out with both teams grinding through running plays. He battered Elgton Jenkins at Mississippi State.

#4 Oakland — Clelin Ferrell (DE, Clemson)
Well, I had the Raiders trading up to get Ferrell in my mock. I didn’t anticipate they’d make this call here. However — here are some things to remember. Going into the year a lot of people, myself included, considered Ferrell a possible top-five pick. They want tone-setters and leaders. That’s Ferrell. He’s an alpha.

#5 Tampa Bay — Devin White (LB, LSU)
He was recruited to be the next Leonard Fournette at running back. He ended up at linebacker and there are three key points to his game. First — he’s a natural leader. Second — he runs a 4.42. Third — he sets a tone and is highly physical.

#6 New York Giants — Daniel Jones (QB, Duke)
Like most other people I mocked Daniel Jones to the Giants albeit at #17. If you identify a quarterback and have the conviction that he’s great — take the guy. Jones is athletic and has functional skills. Is anything outstanding about his game? Not yet.

#7 Jacksonville — Josh Allen (EDGE, Kentucky)
There are things to really like about Allen. His pressure percentage of 29.1% was by far the best in college football in 2018 (the next best mark was 23.5%). He’s an intelligent pass rusher who sets up blockers. He also had some rough games where he was targeted in the run game or handled by tight ends.

#8 Detroit — T.J. Hockenson (TE, Iowa)
This is an outstanding pick. Hockenson’s going to play a long time in the league. He’s a sensational blocker, he makes big plays in the passing game and he dominates against safety’s and linebackers at the second level. This was a no-brainer for Detroit. Exceptional choice.

#9 Buffalo — Ed Oliver (DT, Houston)
He’s fast, explosive and he plays with great effort. Here’s the issue. He has 31 3/4 inch arms and he’s 6-2 and 287lbs. Where do you play him? He could get smothered inside. He lacks the length for DE and the Bills are an orthodox 4-3 so he’s not a five-technique. Love the quickness but this carries some risk. He only had a pressure percentage of 9.6%.

#10 Pittsburgh (via Denver) — Devin Bush (LB, Michigan)
The Steelers trade up from #20 to #10, giving up a second round pick (#52) and a 2020 third rounder. I had the Broncos trading down to #23 in my mock. Bush runs and hits with incredible intensity. This is a classic AFC North pick. He runs a 4.43 and will replace Ryan Shazier who they miss so much.

#11 Cincinnati — Jonah Williams (T, Alabama)
I think he’s overrated. He’s a marginal athlete and his best position might be center (they took a center in round one a year ago). Williams has a fantastic attitude, approach and he’s A-star in terms of character. It’s tough playing O-line at the next level though if you lack power, length and agility. He ran an 8.01 short shuttle and a 4.79 short shuttle.

#12 Green Bay — Rashan Gary (DE, Michigan)
So much for Gary lasting to the Seahawks at #21. There’s been far too much negativity about him recently. It’s funny how some guys just get targeted like that. Jim Harbaugh loved him. He has Jadeveon Clowney-level athleticism. He’s a superb fit at DE in Green Bay’s scheme. He ran a 4.58 at 277lbs.

#13 Miami — Christian Wilkins (DT, Clemson)
This is a quality pick for the Dolphins. They are rebuilding in the trenches. They need to shift the culture in Miami. They need new leaders, people who set a tone. That’s Wilkins. High character, infectious and he plays his tail off. Impact player.

#14 Atlanta — Chris Lindstrom (G, Boston College)
This was rumoured earlier in the day. It had been reported that some teams ended up grading Lindstrom in the top-20. Clearly Atlanta was one of them. He’s very athletic and ran a good forty (4.91) and short shuttle (4.54). He might need to get stronger though to maul and grind at guard.

#15 Washington — Dwayne Haskins (QB, Ohio State)
This was gathering steam this week. The Redskins can’t cut Alex Smith this season or next. They’re tied to his enormous contract. Therefore they were handcuffed to go and acquire a cheap quarterback. Drafting one was inevitable. I’m wary of Haskins. He’s a one year wonder playing in an offense that is always kind to quarterbacks.

#16 Carolina — Brian Burns (EDGE, Florida State)
There are extreme positives and negatives with Burns. He has fantastic athleticism, speed and quickness. He has great length. He had a pressure percentage of 19.7% in 2018. However, he played at about 228lbs last year. Can he keep weight on? Can he play the run? Can he convert speed-to-power or is he just a speed guy?

#17 New York Giants — Dexter Lawrence (DT, Clemson)
Lawrence, like Rashan Gary, got a lot of unnecessary criticism. Maybe it’s because they were the #1 and #2 national recruits and expectations went overboard? He had 33 pressures in 2018 — one fewer than Jeffery Simmons and seven more than Ed Oliver. He can rush, he’s an incredible athlete for his size and he’s stout. Great pick.

#18 Minnesota — Garrett Bradbury (C, NC State)
Pat Elflein was a weak link last year. Bradbury has incredible hips and he can twist his body to make reach blocks like very few interior O-liners. This stood out so much at the combine — I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lineman with hips like Bradbury showed that day. It’s a solid pick and makes sense based on their needs.

#19 Tennessee — Jeffery Simmons (DT, Mississippi State)
Some believe Simmons was the best player in the draft and it’s a compelling argument. He has a frame similar to Ndamukong Suh. He’s all muscle at +300lbs. He handles double teams with ease and flashed great pass rushing ability against Iowa in the Bowl game. He dropped because he tore his ACL during combine training.

#20 Denver (via Pittsburgh) — Noah Fant (TE, Iowa)
The Broncos were after a tight end. They traded down ten spots and get the second one off the board. Will Denver move back into the first round to get Drew Lock later on? If so, #29 could be an option for them. The Seahawks dealt with the Broncos on the Paxton Lynch trade. Fant is big, fast and highly athletic.

#21 Green Bay (via Seattle) — Darnell Savage (S, Maryland)
For the second year in a row, the Seahawks trade down with the Packers. Seattle moves from #21 to #30 — so they now own back-to-back picks at the end of the first. In return they get two fourth round picks (#114 & #118). They now have seven picks. The Packers are spending all their high draft stock on defense under their new GM. I really hope Seattle mimics that approach give the current state of the roster. Savage ran a 4.36 and you can’t teach speed.

#22 Philadelphia (via Baltimore) — Andre Dillard (T, Washington State)
The Eagles trade up from #25 and give the Ravens a fourth and sixth round pick. Andre Dillard ran an absurd 4.40 short shuttle at 315lbs and ran a 4.96. He’s the best pass-protecting lineman in the draft. The Eagles secure their tackle position for the long haul with Jason Peters now aged 37. This is good value for Dillard.

#23 Houston — Tytus Howard (T, Alabama State)
A lot of people liked Howard. Tony Pauline raved about him at the Senior Bowl. He did have that one rep against Montez Sweat that didn’t go well. The Texans needed to draft an offensive tackle. Bob McGinn noted in his mock draft that Jawaan Taylor has a knee issue.

#24 Oakland — Josh Jacobs (RB, Alabama)
Marshawn Lynch retired this week and set the stall for this pick here. Undoubtedly Jacobs emerged in 2018 and had some really fun plays. However — he didn’t have a great pro-day and you have to question his upside. He had 120 carries last season and that was by far his biggest tally.

#25 Baltimore (via Philadelphia) — Marquise Brown (WR, Oklahoma)
Antonio Brown’s cousin lands in the AFC North. The Ravens needed a receiver or an offensive lineman. Brown had a fantastic season in 2018. Yes he benefited from playing with the #1 pick on a loaded roster but he just gets open and makes big catches. Lamar Jackson can get it downfield.

#26 Washington (via Indianapolis) — Montez Sweat (EDGE, Miss. State)
The Redskins took Dwayne Haskins and then gave up their second round pick in 2020 to move up from #46. Chris Ballard now has three second round picks. He gets it. There were concerns about a heart condition. His 4.41 forty at 260lbs was incredible and he has 35 3/4 inch arms.

#27 Oakland — Johnathan Abram (S, Mississippi State)
Oakland’s draft was all about setting a tone, finding intense alpha males and that’s what they’ve added. Three physical players with leadership quality. They’re trying to build a tough group. The worst thing a team can do is not have a clear plan. The Raiders have that in this draft.

#28 Los Angeles Chargers — Jerry Tillery (DT, Notre Dame)
Recruited as a left tackle, Tillery’s physical profile is highly impressive. He’s 6-6 and 295lbs but still ran a 4.44 short shuttle. He had a weird game against USC where he kicked one player in the head and stamped on another’s ankle as both lay on the turf. Had a pressure percentage of 12.2%.

#29 Seattle — L.J. Collier (DE, TCU)
The Seahawks trolled the first round by using their back-to-back picks to essentially create a 20-minute on-the-clock window. They used pick #29 and traded pick #30. L.J. Collier is a beast. As I wrote earlier today, he wins with speed, speed-to-power, bull-rush, engage/disengage. He’s one of my favourite players in the draft and it’s a great pick. His pressure percentage was a high 19.2% in 2018.

#30 New York Giants (via Seattle) — De’Andre Baker (CB, Georgia)
The Seahawks traded down from #30 to #37 and gained a fourth (#132) and fifth (#142) round pick. Baker had a weird off-season and reportedly didn’t take combine training seriously. The Seahawks have done what we expected and traded down aggressively.

#31 Atlanta (via LA Rams) — Kaleb McGary (T, Washington)
The Falcons double down with the O-line and pair Chris Lindstrom with Kaleb McGary in round one. McGary is a tough physical, punishing tackle. He’ll give up some pressures but he’s very athletic and you’ve got to admire the commitment to the O-line.

#32 New England — N’Keal Harry (WR, Arizona State)
Harry believed he wouldn’t get by pick #33 and that proved to be correct. He’s a smart, intelligent personality with great YAC ability. Many believed he would be on Seattle’s radar.

That’s it for round one. Thoughts on the way shortly. I’m also just about to record a podcast with Brandon Schulze so stay tuned.

#29 (R1) L.J. Collier (DE, TCU)

    It was Red Baron’s Pepperoni & Sausage thin crust. I put extra shredded parm&Romano cheese on it and it’s f***n’ delicious.

    You like Hawaain too? Thought my and brother were the only ones.

    • DC

      I grew up slaying Totino’s Party Pizzas. The roof of my mouth peeled off almost every time from the cheese sticking to it at a temperature of “hot as bejeezus”.

  2. TomLPDX

    This is going to be a fun night! Finally!

    • DC

      Me thinks tomorrow night will be waaaay more fun!

      • TomLPDX

        Yeah…so far so good. Can’t wait to see what Seattle does tonight

  3. Cameron

    My wife is relieved that I won’t be audibly counting down the weeks and days to draft day anymore this year. 🙂

    • Cameron

      Especially since we’re expecting our first child in May, so half the time she thinks I’m referring to her due date, then exasperatedly realizes I’m referring to the NFL draft. 🙂

    • Attyla the Hawk

      Mine too.

  4. WallaSean

    T Maclauren @32

    • Cameron

      I’m on team P Campbell in the same spot.

      • charlietheunicorn

        I love you guys

  5. KD

    my body is ready

  6. CHawk Talker Eric

    Happy Draft SDB!

    Perhaps more than any previous JSPC draft, hard to predict how tonight will go down. Grateful for the added suspense. Day 1’s are usually pretty boring for Hawk Nation.

  7. Volume12

    😂😂😂 Music skckcity

    Let’s draft!

    • Volume12

      Poor guy. He has to watch 8 more years of Eli Manning.

  8. charlietheunicorn

    I like the Murray’s suit. That is rocking some styles right there.

  9. KD

    Didn’t the 1st round clock used to be 15 minutes as opposed to 10, or am i just misremembering that?

    • charlietheunicorn

      I think it was always 10 min… well recently…

      but come-on, Cardinals haven’t ran up to the podium yet with the pick….. debacle inbound.

      • Cameron

        Imagine if AZ didn’t get their pick in time…

        I’m sure they’re just waiting for the proverbial offer they can’t refuse.

        • charlietheunicorn

          Instant fricking classic move right there.

    • KD

      Meh, must be a Mandella effect

    • Rob Staton

      It used to be 15 but they wanted to speed it up. That was quite a few years ago now. Think it might’ve changed in 2010.

  10. Seanzpsi

    Man this is so exciting!

  11. Volume12

    Yoooo! Lee Corso covering the draft is gold. lol

  12. Michael Matherne

    Anyone know how to stream the ‘Hawks war room on PC?

    • charlietheunicorn

      I think the seahawks.com has a link to watch…

      • KD

        Apparently it’s only available on mobile devices, but seahawks.com does have a mobile app to watch the war room feed

  13. Coleslaw

    Let’s go!!! Wouldnt want to spend the draft on any other site. Pick is in!

  14. Gymno

    Live war room is on a Seahawks mobile app

  15. David Ashton

    Well done Rob
    He did look mighty good.

    Now we gotta play him twice a year!!!

  16. Madmark

    I just love boos that Rodger gets. Now Seattle has a new target for a new DL can go after

  17. Cameron

    Darn, I was hoping [though not expecting] AZ would be stupid enough to pass on him and roll with Rosen. Gonna be a competitive division for years to come.

    • Volume12

      Would rather face Murray than Rosen.

      • John_s

        Meh. Watching Rosen quit at halftime against UW was all I needed to see from him.

        • Volume12

          Murray gets to face Buckner, Bosa, Ford
          Aaron Donald and the Rams D
          And a Seahawk D that gonna get after the passer. Wish him the best but…

  18. Volume12

    Josh Rosen should be fired up. Dumpster fire franchise.

    • Trevor

      As long as he does not end up with another one in the Giants

  19. regan sayer

    Some talent coming into the NFC West!

    • Rob Staton

      Very much so.

  20. KD

    Honestly, I was more afraid of a SF team with Quinnen Williams crushing the middle. Bosa could be a monster of a player for SF, but I’m glad it wasn’t Williams

    • Rob Staton

      I like Quinnen Williams. But Nick Bosa is off the charts.

    • GoHawksDani

      For the Hawks I think Bosa is much worse. Russ tends to pirouette outside where he’ll land into Bosa’s arms… If the middle is broken he can escape outside, but Russ is not too good climbing the pocket. For a guy like Brady or other more classic QBs Williams can be a worse opponent, but for us…I fear for Russ with the Armstead, Buckner, Ford, Bosa, Thomas, Alexander passrush potential

  21. charlietheunicorn

    Jets, the first swing pick in the draft… possible trade down for a QB needy team.

  22. Rob Staton

    I really like Quinnen Williams.

    But how long are the Jets going to collect interior DL and never take a step forward?

    • KD

      *ahem* It’s the jets

    • Cameron

      Was just thinking the same. Soooo many highly drafted interior DL.

    • Justin Mullikin

      Valid point, but I still like the pick. If he can disrupt plays in the middle he has the ability to be a real game wrecker. (personally I do not care if the Jets don’t get better, actually I would rather them never take a step forward haha Go Hawks! ;))

  23. SoCal12

    I think even at 3, Quinnen is a steal. Jets made the right call there.

  24. Pickering

    Rob, you were way ahead of the curve calling Murray #1. Congrats!

    • Rob Staton

      Thanks

  25. Michael Matherne

    New wall of Williams in the NFL. Jets will actually be fun to watch this year

  26. Mexican Hawk

    To me the most understated and astounding fact/nugget of all of 2019 Draft analysis is and not just in this blog but nationwide is the fact that Rob stated that Kyler should be the number #1 overall pick.

    I may be mistaken but he was the ONLY Draft Analyst to do so. I’m being serious. I would have to go back and double check, but most had him as a second round pick, some in the teens. Not even PFF. I’m talking Kiper, Mcshay, Brugler, Jeremiah etc etc. Even the lesser knowns.

    Tide started to turn and he eventually was #1 on all mocks, but it took a while. I get the baseball thing was omnipresent, but still.

    I commend you Rob, truly something. May seem normal now. But you were firm in your belief.

    Let’s roll….

    • Rob Staton

      Thanks man

    • Justin Mullikin

      Yes I agree, Rob is amazing! I remember him being the first I could find. Even before Murray ever declared he was going to play football.

    • litl gravy

      this is 100% correct, and how nobody in nat’l media “notices” it is a great mystery to me.

      rob said it with absolute conviction at a time when it made as much sense to make the same case for, i dunno, some running back, or gardner minshew.

      he also called that iowa TE, loooooooong before i saw anyone else talking him up.

  27. charlietheunicorn

    WTH, Oakland

  28. Volume12

    Hahahahaha!

  29. Cameron

    Woooooooooooooow overdraft by Oakland [Las Vegas]

  30. Ralphy

    How do the Raiders not trade back right there?

    • charlietheunicorn

      *looking at Raiders brain trust*

      I think I figured it out, a bunch of dummies

      • SoCal12

        So much for Mayock being a wizard I guess.

    • Rob Staton

      Lack of offers and probably fell in love with Ferrell’s attitude.

  31. Michael (CLTJ

    Glad Seattle passed on the jets offer for Clark. No good trade offers, I’d imagine.

  32. KD

    First surprise of the evening. I love Clelin and think this is a good pick in and of itself. But Josh Allen…..

    • Rob Staton

      Josh Allen gets blocked by college tight ends.

      • Volume12

        That was Navy’s guy who he said was as good as Frank Clark. lol

        • Volume12

          My mistake. Comparable to Clark due to his versatility.

    • Madmark

      This was my first surprise of the draft especially what I heard about injuries in high school and college to go this high.

  33. SoCal12

    So I’m guessing very few teams are actually willing to give up the capital to trade up? This is the vibe I’m getting so far.

    • Eli

      I just don’t think there is enough high end Tier 1 talent in this draft that would make a team feel like they’re getting the guy who puts them over the top. Outside of a QB or Bosa or Williams, no one really makes sense trading up for to me.

  34. regan sayer

    Great pick! Love that guy.

  35. Ishmael

    I actually like that Ferrell pick for the Raiders. Genuinely high-character guy who you can build a team around. Hell of a player too.

  36. House

    Great player… Best of luck to him. Raiders will be here in Vegas next year and I’m sure I’ll gear plenty about him

  37. CaptainJack

    Wow… Ferrell at 4!!!

    Well I didn’t see that coming.

    But I did expect Josh Allen to fall.

  38. Ralphy

    BTW if the Raiders couldn’t trade out of that pick then we now know why the Hawks didn’t want to trade up to 3 with the Jets. They knew teams wouldn’t be willing to trade up in this draft

  39. Volume12

    Jim Navy’s guy is still there. But Bruce Arians doesn’t draft for need.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Who is that?

      • Volume12

        Josh Allen

  40. mishima

    Thank god they plugged those leaks. LOL.

  41. David Ashton

    Anyone a bit nervous D Line might just go early early early?

    • Justin Mullikin

      Yes.

    • Justin Mullikin

      Before each pick I hold my breath and day please not D Line lol

      • David Ashton

        Ha good to know were all aligned

        I got my big board in front of me which consists of Robs mock, a couple analysts I trust and my own + 1 friend Haha.

        Let’s cheer the QB pick!

  42. KD

    And Walter Cherepinski just game the Raiders the first ” FARMER FAIL, GRIGSON GAFFE, CERRATO SUCKAGE, BAALKE BLOOPER, CHIP TRAGEDY, KING CALAMITY, SASHI SUFFERIN SUCCOTASH” Grade of the draft

    This is what I meant 😀 I like Walter’s content, but he can get a bit too excited.

    • charlietheunicorn

      LMFAO, this is great stuff

    • Volume12

      So he’s having a normal one?

  43. charlietheunicorn

    Good pick for TB

    • KD

      honestly, TB really can’t go wrong with White. I can see him being a great player for years to come.

    • Attyla the Hawk

      Kind of an Aaron Curry type pick for me. I think White will be much more successful. But picking that high, you need pass rush quality. You need impact. Jarrad Davis is similar — maybe a shade less quality but taken in the 20s.

      • Volume12

        There it is. Thank you Attyla. That’s exactly who White is.

  44. Volume12

    God dammit. where’s his horse?

    • Volume12

      Bring back the creamsicle unis Tampa Bay! Cowards.

      • charlietheunicorn

        Didn’t they bust them out as their 3rd uniform for 1 or 2 seasons.
        I miss them. ;D

  45. Andreas Gravdahl

    Best draft of all time already! As a european viewer, there is no way to watch the draft live legally without paying, so off to bed we are!.

  46. Coleslaw

    Great pick for Tampa.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      +1

      Best ILB prospect since Kuechly/Wagner.

  47. CaptainJack

    I have to say, Tampa nailed that pick!

    Although I thought they were pretty good at linebacker already.

  48. charlietheunicorn

    Giants Haskins Do It

    • Volume12

      No. I wanna watch the world burn. Roll with Eli forever

    • Cameron

      Or was the leak legit, and Daniel Jones at #6? Would be very Giants.

      • charlietheunicorn

        oh Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

      • Cameron

        There it is!! Giants, never change.

        • charlietheunicorn

          Can they fail upward?

      • Coleslaw

        Those aren’t leaks. Those are the legit picks that you can see before they announce the pick. Dont talk about those here.

        • Cameron

          You’re misunderstanding, I’m talking about a report that came out 24 hours ago.

          • Coleslaw

            Oh ok, I was unaware. My bad

      • Cameron

        Glad I changed my competitive mock this morning, giving Jones to NY at 6.

        • charlietheunicorn

          how many picks do you have right so far, 5/6?

          • Cameron

            4/6, I had White to Bengals at 11.

  49. MJL

    another bulls eye for Rob…

  50. Volume12

    This is where I could see Rashan Gary go. Gettleman gives no f***s.

    • Volume12

      Hahahaha!!

      He really doesn’t.

    • KD

      *speaking in The Joker’s voice* It’s all….part of the plaaaaaaan

    • Attyla the Hawk

      Dang. Wished they would save us from ourselves. Someone please take Gary.

  51. CaptainJack

    Well I didn’t see that coming.

    I love the draft.

    • regan sayer

      Wow..this is gonna be a fun night! Better than Christmas for me.

  52. mishima

    OMG. What a dumpster fire.

  53. Coleslaw

    Looking like 5 QBs tonight really might happen lol

    • charlietheunicorn

      This is VERY good news for Seattle

      *rubs hands together*

  54. Justin Mullikin

    PSA: Get your quarterback now!

  55. Ishmael

    Daniel Jones is the most Giants looking QB you will ever see. When you think about some of the QBs they could have had… I’d even rather have traded for Rosen.

  56. Michael Matherne

    Wow!!

  57. MJL

    Giants couldn’t have traded there and gotten him like 20 picks later??

    • Ralphy

      Teams must not be willing to trade up in this draft. Crazy!

  58. HawksBill

    It wouldn’t be the 1st round without some QB hail marys. Giants fire off the first one.

  59. Volume12

    This is gonna be one of those drafts where the top 10 in no way shape or form will be anything close to the best 10 rookies .

  60. charlietheunicorn

    Get the hell off my TV Taylor Swift

    • HawksBill

      thats what you get with ABC

      • charlietheunicorn

        They haven’t pumped Avengers or Star Wars yet….. so could be worse I guess

        • KD

          Already saw a trailer for Endgame on ESPN. I don’t get the hype. looks like generic CGI nonsense.

          • Cameron

            *GASP* Blasphemy!!

      • HawksBill

        It is really making me miss the low key days of Radio City music Hall and rabid Jets fans.

        • HawksBill

          I should add drunk and rabid Jets fans.

        • mishima

          Same. This coverage is garbage.

          More live cam bar shots. Legends, Las Vegas sure looked fun…

          Louis Riddick, saving grace.

  61. lil’stink

    Trade up for Allen, JS.

  62. charlietheunicorn

    They will look back in 5-10 years at this draft top 6 and go…..

    Pro Bowl
    Pro Bowl
    Pro Bowl
    Bust
    Pro Bowl
    Bust

    • Rob Staton

      Don’t write off Ferrell.

      Could easily have a Terrell Suggs type career.

      • Attyla the Hawk

        Agree. I really liked Clelin. Think he’ll do very well

  63. Michael Matherne

    Kinda feels like that Jake Locker, Christian Ponder, Blaine Gabbert draft

  64. Rik

    Jones exudes the charisma of … Eli Manning. I’ll be amazed if he’s actually an NFL starter.

    Reaching on QBs helps us immensely.

  65. Rob Staton

    Someone’s getting a steal in Hockenson.

    • Cameron

      Exit Ebron (1 year removed), enter Hockenson.

      • regan sayer

        That’s the anti-Ebron. That kid’s a beast!

    Raiders select Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell at 4 … destroying mock drafts everywhere and proving the Raiders are the Raiders no matter who is in charge.

      Michael David Smith

      @MichaelDavSmith

      Mayock and Gruden sent the scouts home because they didn’t want anyone around to laugh at them when they made the pick.

      5:48 PM – Apr 25, 2019

      • Volume12

        How long before Mayock is back on the NFLN?

        • charlietheunicorn

          After round 1 is completed o.O

  67. Volume12

    That’s the most Lions pick ever.

    • Michael Matherne

      Well maybe this’ll make people forget about that Eric Ebron pick

      • John_s

        Ebron killed it with the Colts. IMO Stafford is extremely overrated and seeing how Ebron balled out with Luck shows it.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      ikr lmao

    • mishima

      Jon Heder?

    • Cameron

      To be fair, he IS going to be really good.

      But, yea, I’m not a fan of TE that high in general, the rookie contract savings relative to top of the market is one of the smallest of NFL positions.

      • Volume12

        Oh I like him don’t get me wrong.

    • charlietheunicorn

      He can at least bring it in the running game (blocking) and passing game (catching).

  68. CaptainJack

    hockenson is so overrated

    • Rob Staton

      No he isn’t. That’s silly.

  69. Volume12

    Does Elway take Haskins?

    • Rob Staton

      Possibly Devin Bush.

      • Volume12

        I like that fit. A lot.

    • mishima

      Drew Lock, my bet.

      • Cameron

        Mine as well.

  70. KD

    When was the last time a TE was taken before a WR in the 1st? Says a lot about the WR class this year I guess.

    • KD

      No disrespect to TJ though who I agree is a terrific player.

  71. HawksBill

    The Donnelly’s pub cam was epic!

  72. charlietheunicorn

    Bills should be taking OL here, but I guess…. who knows

    • Volume12

      WR?

      • charlietheunicorn

        hum, not quite

  73. mishima

    Bills go DK Metcalf?

  74. charlietheunicorn

    11 picks to go……. things breaking Seahawks way so far.

  75. KD

    Absolutely LOVE Ed Oliver. Condolences for becoming a Buffalo Bill

    • David Ashton

      He looked quite happy with it!

  76. regan sayer

    Tom Brady killer!

  77. Volume12

    Guys. The Jets have won round 1 so far.

    • Attyla the Hawk

      Not a bad take. Hoped we would trade Clark to Jets and have the chance to get him. Crazy great tape.

  78. Ishmael

    If we manage to get Gary somehow… That’ll be the happiest I’ve been about a Seahawks pick in a while

  79. CaptainJack

    Bills get an overrated Defensive lineman with no good NFL fit… lol

  80. chris banta

    when does the first offensive tackle go?

  81. Attyla the Hawk

    If Dillard is still on the board and we take Gary, I’m going to burn something Seahawk related.

    • CaptainJack

      That’s silly, Dillard isn’t a fit at all.

      • Cameron

        +1

    • J

      I like Dillard, think he is the top OT in the class. But OT just isn’t a need.

      • Attyla the Hawk

        Um, we do realize that Duane Brown is the OL equivalent of Doc Brown in age right?

      • Attyla the Hawk

        Also consider that 2020’s OL class is expected to be worse than this years’ LB class. If we want an OL in the next two years — kind of need to get one this year.

  82. HawksBill

    Robin Roberts covering the draft for ABC? I don’t even know who she is but her suit is giving me a headache.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Good Morning America co host. Her voice disturbs me. Her back story is actually pretty interesting however. I hated Taylor Swifts outfit more..

  83. Volume12

    Why does this guy look different than the guy they just showed on that highlight package?

    • charlietheunicorn

      His brother

      • Volume12

        lol. for real?

  84. Michael Matherne

    If I’m the Broncos I just draft for defense. If they can win a SB with the worst QB in the league (that year) why even try to fill the position?

  85. charlietheunicorn

    FINALLYLLLYLLYLYLYYY

    TRADE

  86. Volume12

    Who Pitt coming up to get?

    • Rob Staton

      Bush

      • Rob Staton

        Got to be

      • Cameron

        Seems like a lot to give up for Bush.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Bush?

  87. KD

    TRADE! Oh My!

  88. regan sayer

    Devon Bush

  89. Attyla the Hawk

    Steelers in for Bush?

  90. chris banta

    devin bush

  91. SoCal12

    Those reports about the Steelers are true I guess. I’m curious who they absolutely wanted so bad in the Top 10.

  92. Rob Staton

    I had the Broncos trading down from #10 to #23 then taking Drew Lock.

    Wonder if they’ll still take Lock at #20.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Looking this might happen.

  93. chris banta

    devin is wearing the worst jacket I have seen in a long time!

  94. Justin Mullikin

    I love Pittsburg Trading above Cincinnati to select him. HAHA 😀

  95. charlietheunicorn

    I’ve not seen the trade breakdown, but must be a 1st and 2nd and future 2nd points wise

    • charlietheunicorn

      future 3rd round pick

  96. CaptainJack

    Steelers move up for a tiny and speedy linebacker

  97. Michael Matherne

    The outfits get worse every year. It looks like he’s coming in with a shoulder injury…

  98. SoCal12

    Devin looks like he graduated from Wakanda Tech.

    • HawksBill

      that did make me LOL

    • KD

      lel

  99. David Ashton

    Always been a big Devin Bush fan. Twitchy and hard hitting.

    Know you had some reservations early Rob. Did you fully come round?

    • Rob Staton

      I still think he will need to tone it down. At Michigan he was given the freedom to go all-out rush at the LOS and he gave up some easy runs by losing contain on his side. He’s not great in coverage despite his speed. But as a run-and-hit linebacker, wow. He hits like a sledgehammer.

      • David Ashton

        Thanks for the note.

        Serious attributes, sounds you understood the pick.

        Hopefully he can take to the coaching you speak of to realise potential. I know we had a bit of dialogue regarding Jarrad Davis going missing in coverage (who you liked) but Lions believe he can improve. I see Bush as a better prospect, personally. Not light and day but enough to take note.

        I also loved Steelers aggressive move. They’ve jumped Bengals like that a few times it feels

  100. chris

    yeah I thought he had a shoulder injury as well.

  101. KD

    A couple of surprises so far, but not nearly as crazy as some people were predicting. Everything seems to be shaking up really well for SEA so far.

    • Lupe Green

      “Everything seems to be shaking up really well for SEA so far”. Every time I hear this, I prepare to be surprised by our pick.

  102. Michael Matherne

    How ridiculous did Vince Wilfork and DeAngelo Williams look in their Bridgestone sponsored costumes?

  103. HawksBill

    Were all those Haskin’s kids?

    • KD

      his GF(wife?) is super hot.

  104. chris banta

    there goes the first offensive tackle.

  105. Volume12

    Love that pick.

    • HawksBill

      I agree, the Red Rifle definitely needs more time in the pocket.

      • Volume12

        That O-line is so bad. Jonah can play anywhere and everywhere.

      • HawksBill

        His face after a hard sack is almost as bad as Carr’s

  106. J

    I don’t care about his arm length either, I care about him being in the bottom quarter of NFL OL athletically.

  107. CaptainJack

    Super thud pick for cincy.
    What a joke. Bust.

    • KD

      This is why I wasn’t betting on Gary when Carroll was sending out draft clues on twitter. Pete knows with 100% confidence that HIS guy will be there. There was no way he could be bet on Gary being available.

      • KD

        sorry. Wasn’t meant as a reply to you

      • lil’stink

        Or his draft clues are vague enough so they can end up applying to whoever they end up drafting.

  108. charlietheunicorn

    I really like the value Denver got by trading back 10 spots.
    Elway made a nice move.

  109. charlietheunicorn

    F YOU GB

    F YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU

  110. Coleslaw

    NOOOOOOOOO

  111. CaptainJack

    There goes Gary. Boohoo.

    • Michael Matherne

      No reaction whatsoever in the war room. I’m guessing NFL front offices knew he was gonna be top 15 all along

  112. MJL

    whew!!!

    • Attyla the Hawk

      hope he busts there like I thought he would here.

  113. Eli

    Interesting that Goodell announced Gary as a linebacker

    • Justin Mullikin

      It is just because of GB scheme.

      • Eli

        That’s what I was thinking – but if they’re a 3-4 wouldn’t he play DE and then kick inside in sub packages? Saying LB makes me think of him playing with his hand up as a rush linebacker, which is interesting since he’s a 285 lb. DT as of right now

  114. CaptainJack

    Glad we avoided McDowell 2.0, TBH

    • Cameron

      +1

    • Rob Staton

      Nothing like McDowell.

      Stop trolling.

      • CaptainJack

        Not trolling at all, but ok.

        Gary might not play rookie year.

      • Cameron

        Not a direct reflection of McDowell, but some red flags that strike me as higher than average bust probability. High pick with higher than palatable risk. A similar general feeling that surrounded McDowell (if not quite to the same level).

        • Rob Staton

          It’s not even a remote comparison.

          They’re totally different players, totally different physical profiles and totally different personalities.

          The only similarity I can see is they both play defensive line.

          • Cameron

            Taking too much of a literal comparison. The McDowell reference is purely an emotional connection of too high risk for comfort with a high pick. Too much bust potential for the draft capital.

            Reference could have been made with the same intended sentiment regarding a safety. Or a WR.

            • Rob Staton

              Even then — I can’t see how anyone can make the comparison there. McDowell genuinely mailed it in and had a very peculiar personality. Gary was a focal point of the #1 statistical defense in the country and is a good guy who has battled severe dyslexia to become an all-academic.

    • Michael Matherne

      So are your officially predicting that Gary ends his career in a freak ATV accident?

      • Dog

        no McDowell represents a high pick/low return (for me). Gary may turn out to be great but he has high bust potention imo.

    • Dog

      +1

      I feel we dodged a bullet but will be happy to be proven wrong.

  115. Volume12

    I had him in my mock, but I’m actually ok with this.

    • Attyla the Hawk

      /thumbs up

    • Volume12

      However, that GB pass rush is nasty!

      Z’Darius & Preston Smith, Mike Daniels, Rashan Gary, and Kenny Clark?!? Good lord

  116. KD

    Not surprising tbh. I wasn’t betting on Gary being available, and neither was pete it seems for good reason.

  117. mishima

    Haskins?

    What’s the floor for Lawrence and Wilkins? How far does Sweat fall?

    • Michael Matherne

      #21

  118. Nathan W.

    Damn you, Green Bay!

  119. John_s

    Miami has to take Haskins right?

    • Rob Staton

      DL or OL

      • MJL

        they pretty much need everything…

  120. J

    We gonna get someone good I can feel it.

    • CaptainJack

      Thornhill could be the pick

    • SoCal12

      I’m starting to feel the Burns.

  121. CaptainJack

    Phins nailed it.

  122. Rob Staton

    By the way… Steve Smith blatantly tipped the Rashan Gary to GB pick on NFL Network.

    He sat there acting like he was touting that as a possibility. Give over Steve.

    • Volume12

      Watching ABC. How is Steve?

      • Rob Staton

        He’s good when he’s not tipping picks

      • Michael Matherne

        I loved Steve Smith as a player, but I can’t stand him on the air

  123. Justin Mullikin

    After watching those splits I’m a fan of Christian Wilkins now haha looks like a fun kid!

    • KD

      Looks like he genuinely has some fun going out there

  124. KD

    Wonder if its Lawrence to ATL? Saw a spot on NFL Network earlier today with Vic beasley going back to Clemson and hanging out with Dexter

  125. CaptainJack

    I think Atlanta takes sweat or Lawrence

    • CaptainJack

      Nevermind, good pick tho

  126. CanuckBrad

    The NFL network’s sound effects on the highlights are next-level swooshy.

  127. Attyla the Hawk

    Seahawk war room cam is now must watch. Getting active there.

  128. AlaskaHawk

    it’s hilarious reading the instant draft grades with Yahoo staff writers.

    So far the lowest grade is C- on the Giants QB pick.

    Only A grade is the Jets. Two A minus grades for Steelers and 49ers. Cardinals only got a B+

  129. Volume12

    Really like Chris Lindstrom, but not at 14.

  130. chris

    who is the kid in the hawks war room sitting behind carroll?

  131. Trevor

    Great pick by the Dolphins A+

  132. HawksBill

    Everyone looks comfortable still on the Seahawks war room cam.

    • SoCal12

      I think they’re starting to feel confidant one of their guys is going to be there. I’m antsy to find out who it is. Or maybe they got good deals on trade backs lol.

  133. Volume12

    Haskins or Lock here to Washington?

  134. charlietheunicorn

    Time to warm up the Seahawks draft pick trade phones

    *testing testing testing*

  135. Don

    Sweat and Burns might last to #21. Hawks better not trade down from 21.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Yes I would rather they traded back on #29 too. The trade value difference is a mid third rounder at 160 points.

    • KD

      They likely identified their target weeks before the Clark trade, and there is no guarantee that it’s either of them. All we know is that Pete is 100% confident that his guy will be available in the spot they want.

  136. Michael Matherne

    The war room stream is garbage. Won’t cast to my chromecast, or even go full screen on my phone.

  137. Volume12

    I think Carolina might go OL, but them and the Giants at 17 make me nervous in terms of pass rushers.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Giants might be looking for WR or TE however

      Panthers are a bit of a wildcard to me

  138. Volume12

    Man. I f***n’ love that pick.

  139. Cameron

    Nice, had Haskins to DC.

  140. chris

    we might have our choice of wr if the hawks decide to make one their first pick.

    • Coleslaw

      If we went Marquise Brown then DL, DL, NCB I wouldn’t mind.

  141. Volume12

    Minnesota has to jump at Dillard if he’s there yeah?

    • charlietheunicorn

      That would be a solid move for them.

  142. HawksBill

    Pete’s musical clues had a lot of references to “easy”. Another term for easy is “no sweat”…..
    Montez Sweat ????

    • Volume12

      Would love Sweat.

    • charlietheunicorn

      ;D

    • KD

      I would be very happy with that.

    • Michael Matherne

      Easy -> Easy like Sunday Morning -> NFL games happen on Sunday Morning -> trade some picks to get Frank Clark back from KC… So obvious.

  143. Volume12

    Noooo!! Had a feeling. Fantastic get.

  144. KD

    There goes Burns. Again, not surprising and was probably not going to be the Hawks pick anyways, even if he fell. Pete knows who his guy is and knows the right spot to take him.

  145. Trevor

    Carolina took our guy Vol! That sucks really hoping we would have a shot.

    • Volume12

      I know man. I’m bummed out. Panthers and Giants made me nervous. It’s their m.o.

  146. SoCal12

    Welp. If Sweat gets picked soon, I think we go WR (N’Keal Harry is my guess) or S (Juan Thornhill) maybe. Starting to feel they might be going after Jaylon Ferguson too. Chris Simms comped him to Frank Clark.

    • Rob Staton

      Trade down.

      They’ll find their guys. Got to dominate day two.

      • KD

        This. Still a TON of value available. Settle in lads.

      • KD

        Thats a great pick by NYG.

  147. MJL

    kind of glad Burns is gone..think he might get thrown around like a rag doll by NFL OL’s…

    • Trevor

      David Shaw compared him to Javeon Kearse and I like that comp. I think Burns is a 10 + sack guy.

      • MJL

        you mean Jayron Kearse??? he ‘s a db

        • MJL

          never mind..just found Jevon Kears ..he played at 265 though

  148. Trevor

    Fingers are crossed for Sweat or Lawrence.

    I think Giants take one of them however but if not we have a shot.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Simmons*

      • lil’stink

        I bet he isn’t even on our board

  149. Coleslaw

    Keep an eye on Byron Murphy.

  150. chris

    don’t the giants need a wr as well? or oline

  151. Volume12

    NYG- ??
    Minnesota- OL
    Tennessee- WR
    Denver- QB

  152. charlietheunicorn

    Cody Ford realistically available… intriquing

  153. CanuckBrad

    Gearing up for the NFL network to go to commercial during Hawks pick…as per usual.

    • KD

      this tbh

    • Troy

      Haha so true.

    • Don

      so true. Before the Hawks pick they will be talking about the last pick. Then after Seattle picks they will talk about the next pick.

  154. Volume12

    Meh.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Darn it – I was hoping he would fall to the Seahawks.

    • Trevor

      Lawrence is one of the few guys we see really different.

      • Volume12

        If this was 10 years ago I’d love him.

  155. Trevor

    Hate the Giants 1st pick but love their 2nd pick. Was hoping we would have a chance to get Lawrence.

  156. CanuckBrad

    DJ mentions Ngata – drink!

    • Rob Staton

      Hahaha!

      Can’t help himself.

    • HawksBill

      Like I need another reason

  157. chris

    who do you guys think the vikes go with?

    • Volume12

      Dillard or Ford. Then again they do avoid OL early. But it’s the one thing keeping them from winning the NFCN.

  158. Rob Staton

    Can’t see the Seahawks picking at #21.

    • Trevor

      I think they try hard to trade back from 21 unless MOntez Sweat is still there

    • KD

      Someone is going to be desperate to get ahead of someone else for something.

    • Don

      I know why you say that, but the Hawks should take the best DL guy available at 21. They could get cute and lose their target guy.

      • Rob Staton

        And lose who exactly?

        Who are they losing who’s left and goes before #29?

        There isn’t anyone.

  159. Volume12

    Who traded up?

    • Coleslaw

      ?

      • Volume12

        NVM. I thought someone did.

  160. chris

    Montez sweat has to be tempting for us at 21

    • HawksBill

      Easy as Sunday morning

    • Trevor

      Think the Titans take him but I hope not.

  161. Volume12

    Not the O-lineman I thought but there ya go.

  162. Justin Mullikin

    hey Rob, I know the Seahawks will trade back but if they had to pick who would you like at 21?

  163. Nathan W.

    We could get Tillery or Sweat @ 21!

  164. Bobby54

    Time to trade down now

  165. Coleslaw

    One OL I could actually see us taking is Jawaan Taylor.

  166. Frank

    Please slide a couple more picks Simmons, we neeeeed you!!!

  167. Trevor

    Really suprised Dillard is still on the board.

    • Rob Staton

      Agreed.

    • Volume12

      *whispers* Jonah was always superior

      It’s what Joe Thomas kept saying and I harped on. His footwork is a massive project. Will be hard to break that bad habit. Will take the perfect scenario/O-line coach.

      • Volume12

        Well I had led on after Joe Thomas said it.

  168. Volume12

    WR or pass rusher here. I’ll say the 1st wideout comes off the board here though.

  169. MJL

    Denver should go Lock..(next)

  170. Rob Staton

    I think this all helps Seattle. Either Baltimore will want the only other good center left (McCoy) or they’ll want a receiver. Expect teams will want to get above them.

  171. Troy

    Ability to draft Sweat or trade down…you already know JS has traded the pick before you even starting thinking about it lol

  172. Nick

    TRADE DOWN AT 21.

  173. KD

    THere still have been NO secondary players taken. That is incredible, but good news for us.

  174. Coleslaw

    Noah Fant at 21? I’m game.

  175. chris

    not our biggest need but tempting

    • Coleslaw

      Pass catcher is a pretty big need with Baldwin considering retirement. Get a top TE and draft receiver early next year.

  176. Volume12

    Fant, Metcalf, Sweat, Winovich, Harry, ton of DBs, Simmons, ‘Hollywood’. A lot of talent left.

    • Volume12

      Dillard, Ford, McGary

  177. charlietheunicorn

    Damn, that Hillsboro kid looks like a man.. at 18

  178. Volume12

    Great pick.

  179. KD

    WOW. TEN playing the long term game.

  180. Frank

    Crap baskets, trade down is a must now.

  181. Michael Matherne

    Can we take the high school kid wearing 57?

    • charlietheunicorn

      He has to be around 265 and 6’6″

  182. chris

    schnieder hasn’t been on the phone yet

  183. charlietheunicorn

    Come on Denver, take the QB

  184. MJL

    J Taylor would be tempting at #21..otherwise trade back

    • Rob Staton

      Apparently there are big concerns with Jawaan Taylor’s knee.

      This was from Bob McGinn’s mock draft last night:

      “Taylor has a knee issue that has concerned some teams. That and his distinct chance to bust resulted in a freefall.”

  185. Grayson

    Probably a trade at 21 but I’d like to see Perris Campbell selected. Pair him with Lockett on some play action.. whole lotta speed.

  186. JohnH

    I was really hoping Simmons would fall more. Maybe we can get Sweat?

  187. chris

    I think were staying put unless john traded our pick awhile ago

  188. SoCal12

    Just a few minutes away from 21. Even with a likely trade back, I’m getting antsy.

  189. Volume12

    Here comes Josh Jacobs for Seattle ya’ll. j/k

  190. MJL

    Rob had Taylor going #12 to GB..just saying… ;<)

    • MJL

      hahahaha..just saw your comment above Rob

  191. chris

    I haven’t seen john on the phone for a while now

  192. Coleslaw

    A guy in Seattle draft room is talking intensely with everyone with the draft card in hand. We’re picking at 21. Noah Fant or Montez Sweat I think.

    • SoCal12

      PC’s got his phone out. I think theyr’e getting ready to call their guy.

      • charlietheunicorn

        No Sweat bro, we got you ~ PC

  193. Volume12

    All the WRs and all the DBs are left. Hmmm…

    • Volume12

      God Noah Fant would rule. Either TBH.

      • Volume12

        Love the pick for Denver though.

    • Frank

      A bit of a reach, but hopefully Tillery or Thornhill for me.

  194. Coleslaw

    FRIGOFF BARB

  195. HawksBill

    lot of talk on KJR radio about Sweat health

  196. Cameron

    *sarcasm*
    Here comes our pick of Will Grier!

    • Volume12

      Why would you put that out in the universe?

      • Cameron

        I’m an agent of Chaos.

  197. Michael Matherne

    There is nothing happening in the war room. They might already have a trade worked out

  198. chris

    fant is off the board

  199. Justin Mullikin

    On the phone…

  200. J

    DK Metcalf in 3, 2 …

  201. charlietheunicorn

    Fant, Jimmy Graham 2.0 ?

  202. HawksBill

    JS on the phone…

  203. CHawk Talker Eric

    Shame about Simmons. I rather liked him, even with a medical redshirt.

    • HawksBill

      He wasn’t on the board

  204. Cameron

    It’s Sweat or it’s a trade back.

    • Trevor

      Agree completely. Sweat or a trade back. Praying they pull the trigger on Sweat if the medical checked out.

  205. Matt

    Unless they feel comfortable with Sweat they should trade down.

  206. Troy

    JS IS ON THE PHONE, I REPEAT JS IS ON THE PHONE

  207. charlietheunicorn

    OMG, a Seahawks 1st round pick!

    Fans don’t get to experience that every year with JS/PC. 😀

  208. HawksBill

    trade down

  209. chris

    john just threw a card in the garbage. not sure what that means lol

    • Attyla the Hawk

      trade

    • Andrew Taylor

      trade to packers

  210. Volume12

    Trade!

  211. chris

    trade

  212. Don

    Commercial ……” Now we are back and Baltimore is on the clock. What do they need?”

  213. regan sayer

    GB trade…offcourse

  214. CHawk Talker Eric

    I’m shocked. Said nobody

  215. Comfect

    Well, we predicted ESPN at a commercial for #21, but the Seahawks aren’t picking. Hi, GB.

  216. MaxC14

    TRADEEEE!!!!

  217. mishima

    Yes! Packers come through, again.

  218. Rowdy

    Packers, what we get?

  219. SoCal12

    Schneider’s GB connections must still run deep. I feel like we always deal with them lol.

    • Justin Mullikin

      +1

  220. chris

    sweat must not be on our draft board

  221. MJL

    you could actually red shirt Taylor a year if it’s just a knee thing…

  222. Coleslaw

    Well, we know well pick at 29, cant trade out from in front of ourselves lmfao.

    We get 30 and 114 and 118. Great value!!!

    • KD

      😀

    • charlietheunicorn

      eh, not real keen on 4th round picks

      • Michael (CLT)

        KJ Wright Å 4th rounder. Ya never know.

    • Rowdy

      Wow that is

    • AlaskaHawk

      I’m underwhelmed by the trade – but it is a fair swap.

  223. Volume12

    ‘JoHN ElWay iS EnAmOrEd wItH DrEw LoCk’

    • MJL

      hahahhahahaha

  224. MJL

    trade!!

  225. KD

    So Pete, it seems, nevr had Sweat in mind. Not surprising, but I am thrilled about the trade back.

  226. chris

    we got 2 4th round picks

    • Michael Matherne

      Seems like a somewhat light return? I think our reputation as a team that loves to move down probably hurts our chances of getting true value

      • Volume12

        This a team that never has 1 guy in sight. It’s always a group of players they’re comfortable selecting in a certain range.

  227. Sean Vernon

    That is the worst draft for Offensive talent through 20 picks I can ever remember. Weak QB’s, No RB’s, No WR’s and 2 Iowa TE’s? ha ha ha… Total joke!

  228. Volume12

    JS: the cliff of talent falls off the 3rd round. Trades back and gets 2 fourths.

    • Lil’stink

      Has to be because there are many guys still on their board that they have rated roughly the same.

      But only getting 2 fourths? Interesting that was the best offer they could get

      • Volume12

        Yup. Have to get these jokes off my man. I got a brand to uphold. 😉

    • Josh

      Can’t wait for regime change.

      • Rob Staton

        Get stuffed

        • Josh

          Profound

          • Rob Staton

            Yet apt.

            Nobody wants this nonsense on here. Your one and only warning.

  229. Rob Staton

    The Seahawks needed picks.

    Trading down was inevitable — and they now have seven picks.

    Don’t be shocked if they trade down again.

  230. Coleslaw

    With how early all the DL are going, Sweats issue must be legit. He might be a day 2 or 3 guy for real.

  231. Frank

    Thank goodness, I was sweating bullets hoping they didn’t grab Sweat pun definitely intended.;)

  232. Dawgma

    Schneider would take a buy get get one half off Jimmy John’s coupon to trade back from the end of the first round.

    • Josh

      Agreed. The Seahawks got the 114 and 118 picks for this. Historically, those draft picks have like a 5% chance of becoming NFL starters…

  233. MaxC14

    It must be a WR right?

  234. Volume12

    Like that pick, but A-Rod needs weapons. Badly.

  235. HawksBill

    Nice move, they still have two 1sts that come with the 5th year option

    • Rob Staton

      I don’t think they’re done trading.

      • charlietheunicorn

        100%

      • David Ashton

        Me either for what its worth

    • Michael Matherne

      Nothing in their history suggests the Hawks value the 5th year option at all

      • HawksBill

        That might be changing with these latest contracts.

  236. Lil’stink

    GB trades up for Savage? Wow. Cue the run onDB’s.

  237. Volume12

    Ravens passed on a wideout? Woof.

  238. charlietheunicorn

    JS was checking his lotto tickets and tossed em in the trash can before #21.

  239. House

    Savage to GB? Damn…

  240. Coleslaw

    GB got Gary and Savage. Damn them.

  241. charlietheunicorn

    Late 1st round WR still in the cards for Seattle.

  242. Don

    Savage looks like ET 2.0. Dang, would have looked good as a Hawk

    • Rob Staton

      Earl Thomas he aint.

  243. KD

    Savage is the first DB taken so far. No CBs for far. No WRs. This is the insane part of the draft.

  244. Volume12

    Yoooo!!! Seattle picks 3 times in Saturday morning? Christmas came early ya’ll.

    • Hebegbs

      Hawks will trade 29 and 118 to get a 2nd (41?) and a low 3rd? Then 30 and 118 to basically duplicate. 4 picks between 41 and 80 is my guess. Right where Rob has said the strength of the draft is. Go Hawks. Great job Rob I love this blog!!

  245. Salemhawk

    Anyone know why taylor is dropping?

    • jujus

      because uw is overrated and only 1 player from there has been worth anything in the past decade

  246. chris

    rob said knee issues

    • MJL

      unless it’s chronic..I say take him..he can redshirt behind Ifedi this year..

  247. Coleslaw

    Our draft board at the moment.

    1.29.
    1.30.
    3.92
    4.114
    4.118
    4.124
    5.159

    • KD

      I like this position.

    • Icb12

      There’s a lot of talent in that gap between 30 and 92.

  248. charlietheunicorn

    Since when is 245 a little thin guy?

    • MJL

      Burns??

      • charlietheunicorn

        Dillard when he entered college / now 315

  249. Troy

    Dillard finally off the board

    • KD

      I’m genuinely happy for Dillard. First guy from the state to be taken. Good luck to Murphy.

  250. HawksBill

    im a dog fan but good for Dillard, go Cougs.

  251. David Ashton

    Who we gonna get guys?

  252. Volume12

    If Houston don’t take Cody Ford or an O-lineman, shoot their FO into the sun.

    • icb12

      Exactly.

      Philly knew it too.

    • Volume12

      Well…

  253. charlietheunicorn

    WR run will start REALLY soon

  254. Grant G

    Greetings from a flight to Nashville! I paid for WiFi to see the hawks trade down 4 times!!! Whoop!

    • Ukhawk

      Me too!! Enroute to LAX but it’s worth it!! I know they’ll pick in R1 at some point??!!

    • TomLPDX

      You expected anything else?!

      • Grant G

        Nope! Although I do hope we make 1 pick tonight, if only so I can fall asleep watching highlight clips

  255. Cameron

    Who?

  256. KD

    >TEXANS
    Wooooooooooooooooooooooooow

  257. mishima

    After another trade down or two, feeling Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Jaylon Ferguson.

  258. Michael Matherne

    Seahawks take both OSU wideouts back to back… Calling it, haha

    • MJL

      that would be so awesome!!!

  259. KD

    HAHA!

    Walter just handed out his 2nd “MAYOCK MALFUNCTION, FARMER FAIL, GRIGSON GAFFE, CERRATO SUCKAGE, BAALKE BLOOPER, CHIP TRAGEDY, KING CALAMITY, SASHI SUFFERIN SUCCOTASH” Grade tonight for GB’s pick

  260. Sean Vernon

    Tytus who?

    Keep dropping back…..

    Three 2nds, two 3rds, Five 4’s.

    • Rob Staton

      Absolutely. Keep… trading… back.

      • HawksBill

        Dawn Rob, you must be burning the midnight oil, hope you got a good nap earlier.

        • Rob Staton

          Wouldn’t miss this for the world

          • HawksBill

            Yes, with two 1st round picks this is one of the most entertaining drafts in a while.

  261. Rob Staton

    NFL Network going to advert breaks constantly at the moment.

    Very frustrating.

  262. MJL

    so..assuming no RW deal..would anybody have taken Lock at #21??

    • Cameron

      Grier or no QB.

    • icb12

      I would.

      I personally think he’s the 2nd best QB in this draft.

      Pats take him at 32 for the extra year of control.

  263. Cameron

    Counting our blessings with every pick that procrastinates the run on WR’s.

  264. John_s

    Watching Seahawks cam, looks like they’re reviewing multiple trade cards. Looks like at least one trade down is coming

    • KD

      I can’t criticize the Raiders for going for a RB. I’m always a fan of building the running game, so fair play to them.

      • charlietheunicorn

        Lynch retired, so they were going to take a guy. Might as well pick the one you like.

      • Dog

        The man has a nice suit, I will give him that.

  265. Justin Mullikin

    Looking at the War room. Are those draft cards? What are they doing? I want to know what is going on lol

    • Justin Mullikin

      On the phone…

    • charlietheunicorn

      or 2 more trade downs!

    • Michael Matherne

      Those are takeout menus

      • KD

        HAHA

  266. Philip

    1st Round RB (not to the Seahawks, just saying).

  267. chris

    what happened to Damien harris this year ? he was a first rounder if he had come out last year.

  268. icb12

    Ravens with their choice of wideout.

    Will be interesting to see who they choose for Lamar to attempt to throw the ball to

    • Sean Vernon

      Only receiver I want is N’Keal Harry in Rd 2. Maybe the kid from Iowa State in Rd 4.

      • icb12

        I agree on Harry.

        But he goes here to the colts.
        If I was them that’s my pick.

        Harry or byron Murphy

  269. HawksBill

    JC working the phone hard right now

    • HawksBill

      *JS

    • KD

      WORK IT BABY!

    • Volume12

      They need a another 3rd.

  270. KD

    “MAYOCK MALFUNCTION, FARMER FAIL, GRIGSON GAFFE, CERRATO SUCKAGE, BAALKE BLOOPER, CHIP TRAGEDY, KING CALAMITY, SASHI SUFFERIN SUCCOTASH Grade”

    For the Texans pick 😀

    • KD

      from Walterfootball of course. 3rd such grade of the day.

    • Coleslaw

      Gaurentee Seattle gets one of those lol

      • KD

        Oh, Walter has already handed out a ton of those for the Hawks, and then a few years later does an updated mock where that player gets chosen before the original draft position.

  271. regan sayer

    Hollywood! What a gift for BAL!

  272. charlietheunicorn

    Adding some spice to the Ravens offense.

    • Volume12

      About time. Will be a good fit with Lamar Jackson.

  273. JohnH

    I hope Sweat sticks around to 29 and we trade out of 30.

    • Rob Staton

      If Sweat has dropped this far the concerns about his health are legit and therefore, not sure why Seattle would want him.

      • charlietheunicorn

        on ESPN, they inferred there is some type of hidden character issues.

      • JohnH

        Report came in just today saying the combine medical staff was wrong about his heart condition. Could be a real steal.

        • Rob Staton

          And then other people reported teams were saying… not so fast.

          Sweat got an independent doctor to say it was a misdiagnosis. There was a vested interest there.

  274. charlietheunicorn

    Hey Pete, you want to order some Pho or some Dim Sum? ~ JS

    *picks up stack of menu’s off of desk*

      Haha +1

    • KD

      kek

  275. Michael Matherne

    I’m not a fan of this band that’s been playing in the background all night, but at least they’re playing The White Stripes now

    • Volume12

      I’m a hip hop/R&B/old school rock and roll, but dammit if I dont love me some Jack White and White Stripes.

      • Michael Matherne

        Ya he’s ridiculous. Still got it too, he was here last summer and rocked it. Really looking forward to the Black Keys tour after such break now

        • Volume12

          Ooohh. Black Keys are dope too. Same with The Strokes.

        • icb12

          I saw Black keys 2 years ago.
          Best concert I’ve been to.
          Gary Clark junior right behind, barely.

          Snow patrol and Chevelle come close though.

          • Michael Matherne

            I think Gary Clark Jr. is the best show I’ve ever been to. He’s for sure the best guitar player I’ve ever seen. Did you see the Black Keys or just Dan Auerbach? I didn’t think the Black Keys did any tours after the Turn Blue tour in 2014

            • icb12

              You’re right.
              Had to be more than 2 years ago.
              Christ I’m getting old.

  276. Volume12

    Washington trading up for a wideout? Is there about to be a run on the position?

    • Rob Staton

      That would be my guess.

      • KD

        Still no CBs or WRs taken

        • KD

          Aside from Brown

    • Volume12

      Although they never replaced Preston Smith. Or did they?

      Could use some secondary help as well.

      • Volume12

        There it is.

  277. Producehawk

    Man the people talking at the war room are tedious

  278. chris

    what I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall in the war room

    • Michael Matherne

      They really should record the inside of the war room, just to have some cool audio like 20 years from now. Like they should really do that, then just lock the recording up in a vault for 20 years and then pull it out. It would be super cool

    • HawksBill

      Gentlemen. You can’t fight in here. This is the War Room!

    • charlietheunicorn

      I would love to hear the crazy trade calls… and them slam the phone down on the caller.

  279. RWIII

    Guys. Do you think there is a chance that someone would trade two round picks for our 29th pick?

    • Dog

      No

  280. Hawktalker#1

    Crap

  281. KD

    And there goes Sweat. great pick, but I don’t think he was the Hawks target to begin with. not upset at all about this

    • Rob Staton

      If they wanted him they would’ve taken him. This is all calculated. They’re moving around and getting their guys.

    • KD

      Kind of surprised that they didn’t go with a WR that he is comfortable with, but good news for the Hawks.

  282. JohnH

    A pair of seconds for 26? Dang.

    Also, darn it Redskins.

  283. David Ashton

    Kills me a bit to see the haul Colts got for a shorter trade down v ours

    Can anyone provide an explanation? Or just the mechanics of the draft?

    • charlietheunicorn

      Current year picks vs future picks. Main difference.

    • Volume12

      JS doing those who he trusts/likes a favor?

      Maybe GB was the only team willing to trade up with them?

    • Spireite_Seahawk

      All I saw was a 2nd rounder next year for dropping 20 places in the draft.

  284. Volume12

    Here’s the thing.

    Who did Washington jump in front of that wanted Sweat? Oakland to make up for the loss of Mack?

  285. MJL

    I’m guessing Raiders pick Metcalf here..because they are the Raiders

  286. Trevor

    That really sucks. Sweat was a shot for us to get an elite pass rusher I hope those two 4th round picks end up being worth it.

    I am guessing he must not have been on the Hawks board because they absolutely passed on him.

    • Rob Staton

      Don’t assume they would’ve taken him at #21 anyway.

      • Trevor

        True but at the very least they did not think he was a must have. They only picked up a couple of 4th round picks. Those could end up being good players though so I am going to stay positive.

    • Frank

      Sweat was fools gold, great athlete below average football player. My biggest concern with this draft was him or Gary ending up on the Hawks, we learned this lesson from Christen Micheal already but PC has a historically had a blind spot for Sparq freaks. The Raiders seem to be blowing it the other way, but so far my biggest loser is the Giants, but I think the Packers and Raiders have ensured their jobs are temporary as well.

  287. Trevor

    I pray this does not mean they are targeting Ferguson. That is my worst nightmare.

  288. JohnH

    So bummed we missed Sweat. He was the only elite edge we had a shot at.

    • Volume12

      That’s not true at all. so many of these guys outplayed their draft position. It’s why I love day 2-3 even more.

      • JohnH

        Who is left that’s in the same tier as Sweat?

        • Volume12

          I’d take Winovich over him. Banogu other than his length is almost identical. Omenihu. Dre’Mont Jones.

          They might like Ferguson more than the fan base.

        • Volume12

          D’Andre Walker. Maxx Crosby.

          These guys might not be the same tier, but offer better value. And that’s what it’s all about.

  289. KD

    STILL
    NO
    CBs
    TAKEN

  290. Volume12

    Good pick for Oakland, but they need offensive weapons too.

    • icb12

      They pick again in 7 slots and there’s only been 1 WR leave the board.
      Plus it’s a deep TE class.

      They could potentially get mclaurin, Harry, Metcalf, brown, Campbell
      And then pick a TE in Rd 4

      • Volume12

        Good point.

  291. charlietheunicorn

    Seattle might draft Cody Ford… fits their physical profile they like in OL/OG.

    • charlietheunicorn

      I also would love to see the fan reaction to an early OL draft pick ^.^

      • 805Hawk

        I’m tired of the sky is falling reactions. For once, I’d love no some happy twitter reactions.

  292. Jake

    No pass rusher? Damn our defense is gonna be bottom 10. Won’t even be surprised.

    • Volume12

      Maybe a pass rusher, maybe not. Round 3 is loaded. And if so many ‘great’ rushers are already off the board it’s gonna push some into round 4.

  293. Trevor

    Mayock is drafting the type of guys he loved when commenting.

    Ferrell, Jacobs and Abram are all big time culture guys. Good for the Raiders.

  294. Sean Vernon

    Bummer. Wanted Sweat bad….

  295. Trevor

    I don’t see any more must have guys on the board. Would like the Hawks to trade back into the 2nd with both picks now so they can get more lottery tickets.

  296. Tecmo Bowl

    Cody Ford would fit well.

  297. Tony

    More trade back please!

    Tons of options!

  298. SoCal12

    Lots of activity in the War Room. Wonder what the hubub is about.

  299. Coach

    Trade back again with both picks and get Ferguson and Harry in the second and Winovich in the 3rd!

    Go Hawks!!

    • H

      Please no. Trade back sure just so not into either of those guys.

    • Volume12

      IDK why people are bummed. There’s quite a bit of talent at WR, DB, and D-line.

    • Dog

      That would be a great result

  300. CaptainJack

    Seahawks screwed up

    • Rob Staton

      No they didn’t.

    • regan sayer

      Let the pros do their job.

  301. Troy

    Pretty disappointing that we traded away Clark and didn’t grab any of the really good Dline options available…hopefully we get somebody like Winovich that can manufacture some pass rush

  302. OaklandHawk

    I’m guessing Cody Ford and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. Not necessarily at #29, #30 but they seem like two players Seattle could use.

    • Coleslaw

      I think Ford is gonna go to the Rams..

      • OaklandHawk

        I think Ford in Rd 1, CGJ in Rd 2 after a trade down. Hoping they add Miles Boykin + Tyler Hill in 3rd.

        • OaklandHawk

          Trysten, not Tyler.

  303. MJL

    here we go…

  304. Trevor

    Anyone but Ferguson please. Sounds like a great kid but I hope he is not what they are pinning thier pass rush hopes on.

  305. SoCal12

    What’s the call here guys?

  306. Sean Vernon

    I loved the last 3 picks. Sweat, Abrams, Tillery….

    Oh well… What’s left? Anyone pick me up w some hype?

  307. RWIII

    Guys. Don’t sweat. That Sweat went to Washington.

  308. Volume12

    The sky ain’t falling guys.

    • Trevor

      It is always falling on the night of round #1 for the Hawks fans you know that Vol 🙂

  309. 6x2 stack monster

    OL. McGary! I’m a Fife guy!

  310. Michael Matherne

    Billy Ray Cyrus sure is getting a lot of run on this broadcast. Is he to Tennessee as Prince was to Minnesota?

  311. JohnH

    They really do go to commercial every time we pick.

    • MJL

      I watch NFL.com draft tracker..picks show up faster anyways

  312. Coach

    I’d be shocked if they don’t trade back – down to 3 minutes left now with their pick. They are listening to offers for sure!

  313. SoCal12

    Oh shit theyre calling….

  314. Spireite_Seahawk

    Can we go over 10 mins if we are next up?

  315. Volume12

    Metcalf is still sitting there? Harry, Deebo, Parris Campbell

    CJG, Thornhill, Adderley

    Omenihu, Ferguson, Winovich,

    Cody Ford, McGary

    • Volume12

      AJ Brown too.

  316. Michael (CLT)

    D’Andre Walker please

  317. Frank

    Come on, just grab Tillery and be great full they didn’t end up with Sweat.

  318. Sean Vernon

    The trade for Sheldon Richardson is coming back to haunt us. Lost our 2nd rd and causing to drop further down that I’d like to see Sweat, Abrams and Tillery all off the board.

    We need to replace Ifedi at RT but do we do it now or later?
    We need a pass rusher. We need a WR. We need another CB.

    ??????

    • Hawktalker#1

      Can we please stop with all the Sheldon Richardson lost pick complaining already? I don’t know how long this has to go on . . . That ship has sailed.

  319. Tony

    People gotta stop panicking lol. Tons of good players available.

  320. KD

    PICK IS IN PICK IS IN

  321. HawksBill

    Hugh Millen is pumping DK M

    • Volume12

      He fits the mold.

  322. Volume12

    Gonna be one of these guys still there or will it be considered a ‘reach?’

  323. SoCal12

    Here we go.

  324. Fudwamper

    Hahahah

    They still have all the time of pick 30 to trade. I bet that is messing with people.

  325. Frank

    That hurt to miss on Simmons and the consolation prize Tillery as well. Anthony is our only chance to improve the Dline now, but wherever we trade down too the team right before us will grab him.

  326. Andrew Taylor

    So Seattle actually makes a pick… WR?

  327. Michael Matherne

    It’s hilarious how much Rich Eisen hates the band

  328. KD

    F***ING COMERCIAL!

    • Volume12

      Boy. For a team with 2 firsts, as of now, they sure are milking this.

      Your killing the PNW and Hawks fans everywhere NFL!!!

  329. AlaskaHawk

    Time really can stop on TV

  330. HawksBill

    big surprise, Hawks pick is in…. commercial

  331. Fudwamper

    Anyone know the real time left? ESPN can’t figure this out.

    • Coleslaw

      Nfl network was the same.

  332. Trevor

    Is it just my mind or is this taking forever?

    • Volume12

      Nah. It’s ridiculous. IDK why we had to watch Christian Wilkins dunk on folks or whatever the f*** he was doing. Talking about the Power Rangers probably.

  333. Mark Souza

    You realize the Hawks have been on the clock 3 times and ESPN has gone to commercial break each time. I get the feeling they don’t care for us.

    • SoCal12

      I mean we’re either trading down or taking forever. I don’t blame them lol.

    • HawksGal

      They do this every single year with almost every one our picks, pisses me off!

  334. chris

    I have a feeling this pick is gonna come out of left field!

  335. Coleslaw

    Pick is in yall! Let’s go! In PCJS we trust always remember.

  336. Nathan W.

    whoa we picked!

  337. Dog

    Campbell? Or K’Neal?

  338. Producehawk

    Longest pick is in I have ever seen. Maybe they will do both at once!

  339. Attyla the Hawk

    Seeing Collier

  340. charlietheunicorn

    JESUS

    I think it has been 15 minutes of straight commercials.

  341. Trevor

    Maybe Pete has decided we have the highest paid QB lets out score everyone.

    DK Metcalf and Paris Campbell back to back. Kidding

  342. MJL

    they traded #30…

  343. KD

    YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

  344. Volume12

    Good pick, but a reach.

    • Tk

      Massive reach

    • H

      Massive oxymoron that…

  345. Aaron

    LJ Collier BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOM!!!!!!!!

  346. charlietheunicorn

    shocker

    TRADE!

  347. HawksBill

    is LJ a !st rounder?

  348. KD

    From the previous thread, who bet on the first pick? I picked LJ, BOW BEFORE ME!

    • SoCal12

      You definitely got it! Congrats on the bragging rights!

      • KD

        Best part about this: I gave a co-worker a list of 4 positions, and 1 player at each position:

        WR: Terry mcClaurin
        S: Juan Thornhill
        DE: LJ Collier
        DT: Trystin Hill

        I’ just happy that I am now the draft god at my workplace.

  349. Volume12

    His athletic profile was never that bad for his position.

  350. Hawktalker#1

    Sweet sweet sweet. Great #29 pick.

  351. Trevor

    Typical Hawks pick. I really like the player but thought he was a 2nd rounder. Guess he was the guy they wanted and I can’t complain about that. Seems like a good kid too.

    • Zxvo3

      I love the LJ Collier pick. I wonder what they will do with pick 37

      • Trevor

        I think Thornhill or Mclaurin or Ferguson. Hope it is one of the first two.

    • AlaskaHawk

      I think having control over his 5th year is worth it.

  352. MJL

    we get 2.5 tomorrow…

    • MJL

      plus 5.4 it looks like

  353. regan sayer

    Love the pick! Kid is twitched up!

  354. HawksBill

    What did we get for #30?

    • Volume12

      Right?

    • MJL

      #37 and #132 I think

      2.5 and 5.4

    • Aaron

      710 ESPN reporting pick 5 in round 2 and a 4th and 5th. We got the 8+ picks we need.

      • Mark Souza

        Geez, the Hawks now own the 4th round.

  355. MJL

    plus 5.4 it looks like

  356. chris

    every pick they make seems like a reach according to most

    • Ryan

      welcome to being a Seahawks fan.

  357. Trevor

    Rob you should be a Hawks scout as you clearly think alike. I know Collier was one of your favourites

  358. H

    I like Collier a lot, there are other guys I’d have preferred, but he does fit.

  359. Justin Mullikin

    If Rob thinks he is a badass then I’m super excited for this pick! Great work Rob, go Hawks!

    According to Yates, we get 37, 132, 142.

  361. TomLPDX

    After all that we only get 4th and 5th round picks? JS said there is a dropoff after 3 so we load up on 4th and 5th round picks? I don’t get it. Good night you guys…hopefully tomorrow is a better day.

    • Comfect

      There’s always the possibility of a Tyler Lockett-style trade of 4ths for a 3rd later.

  362. Trevor

    I could see the Hawks taking his teammate Banogu at some point tomorrow as well.

  363. HawksBill

    Don’t know much about LJ, Tony Softly had him in the 3rd round

    • Aaron

      LJ Collier is a frickin BEAST, absolutely love this guys toughness, motor, and attitude. He’s a great player and a perfect fit for the Hawks.

      • HawksBill

        Hope he works out, a lot of local experts that know more than me are pissed.

    • Hawktalker#1

      I’m sure some others had them lower. There’s always somebody that forecast your guys lower than the rest

      • HawksBill

        a little lower is one thing……

  364. John_s

    I got a trade with the Giants right but it was to get Daniel Jones lol

  365. Volume12

    They liked that TCU program this draft season didn’t they?

    • Trevor

      I think Banogu could be a target tomorrow.

      • Hawktalker#1

        Please no

  366. Trevor

    JS ends up with this traditional 8 pick allotment.

    • Mark Souza

      Don’t we have 9 picks now?

  367. Andrew Taylor

    Absolutely love your comment on LJ Collier Rob … it takes the sting of seeing some of the other top players off the board. Go Hawks!

    #21 for #37, 114, 118, 132, 142

    Not bad.

    This is the anti-Malik McDowell pick.

      Does that mean we know for sure he will never ride an atv?

  374. H

    And the Seahawks can’t select Harry! Best news of the night.

  375. KD

    I absolutely LOVE this pick. Collier does not fit the profile that the Hawks usually go for, but he is a f***ing pit bull when it comes to rushing the passer. Powerful, relentless, aware. Fantastic pick.

  376. Tk

    Hugh Millen is digusted by this pick. No one had this guy even close to the first round

    • Volume12

      A lot like the Penny pick. Except he won’t be the backup to the backup. Joking. Relax.

    • mishima

      Is Hugh Millen employed?

    • John_s

      Which means it will be a great pick

    • Group captain mandrake

      If I remember correctly, Hugh didn’t like the frank clark pick either.

    • lil’stink

      Millen also trashed the Frank Clark pick, and not because of the DV issue. He didn’t think Clark was much of a player.

      Whatever football knowledge Millen possesses I don’t think much of it transfers to the draft and selecting players.

  377. Volume12

    Seattle got their 5-tech. Biggest need but he tcan also slide inside and rush from the 3 too. That might be more important.

    • charlietheunicorn

      PC specifically said he could see him play anywhere along the line, especially in pass rushing situations.

      First time time in a while where i am not scratching my head. This was a fantastic pick. I absolutely love it. Collier is a frikin bull dog! He engages with strength and quickness. He goes in hard and agressive on every play. I absolutely love this pick.

      A+ for me.

  380. Tk

    It isn’t about if lj isn’t going to be a good player, it’s about draft position and value.. who can legit day he wouldn’t have been there at 37

    • SoCal12

      Who can legit say he would though?

      • Kenny Sloth

        +12

  381. Sean Vernon

    Has all of these trade backs ever really worked? I look at the past 5 years of the draft and to me, it hasn’t worked at all and reason we’re in this decent state.

    I loved what Atlanta did. They targeted OL and grabbed a guard and tackle. Beautiful picks.

    The players that we picked well were draft picks that we moved UP for not back. Maybe Clark but that was off field.

    Jarron Reed was a trade up and wasn’t Tyler Lockett a trade up target?

    2017 draft is a disappointment. 2016 draft? 2015? 2014? I just think from Rd’s 1 – 4 during that era, we haven’t been good with the trade backs. Oh well… Maybe it changes in 2019.

    • Davison Phipps

      Reed and Lockett were both trade ups, but those were made possible because the Seahawks had a bunch of picks available to trade (acquired by trading down). I would not be a bit surprised to see Schneider turn some of those 4th rounders into a 3rd.

      • clbradley17

        +1

  382. JohnH

    Anyone find it disconcerting that the highlight reel for the OL two picks after ours showed a clip of him dominating Collier? Lol, I know it doesn’t mean anything but not reassuring.

    • Volume12

      No because TCU had him play outta position like most college schemes.

      There’s a reason he popped on tv down at the SR bowl.

      This is a dude that’s gonna set an EDGE and play with one. On money downs you line him up at 3-tech.

    • Volume12

      He does come with risk. Close to 25 and doesn’t have great agility.

      • JohnH

        The age is killing me, not loving it.

        • Volume12

          It’s very Rashaad Penny esque. No doubt about it.

  383. Nathan W.

    9 pick overall. Interesting to see what we’ll do with those fourths. Might hop back into the third with the fourths or stay pat and pad the roster with some depth and contributors

  384. Michael Matherne

    Weird that they chose to draft with #29 and trade #30 instead of the other way around. Wouldn’t the rookie wage scale mean they could have saved a few bucks by doing the opposite of that?

    • SoCal12

      I mean if you’re trading with us for 29 that means you’re trading up to beat… ourselves to the podium? I don’t think a team would do that lol.

  385. Coleslaw

    I have my fingers crossed for Byron Murphy or Juan Thornhill at 37. I’d take another DL or a WR like Deebo, McLaurin or Campbell

    • Volume12

      I think they go offense tommorow.

    • Coleslaw

      Irv Smith jr. maybe a possibility? Last chance at a top TE.

      • Volume12

        Maybe? I’d like them to add a safety.

    • charlietheunicorn

      Campbell *fingers crossed*

  386. Paul Cook

    There are times that I wonder if the Hawks get too cute in the draft for their own good. But they do always put a competitive team on the field. I’ve got to give them that. LJ Collier? I can’t honestly say that I know much of anything about him. They must have seen something. Time will tell.

  387. Frank

    Ok, not good value and certainly will never be a great player, but I’ve seen the Hawks blow the first round more often than not and this time they at least got a ok player that will be a league average Dline player. Good anchor against the run, and is only a few cheeseburgers away from being a down tackle with some ability to rush. Will be interesting lined up at tackle beside Reed on third down, but still need a Clark/Avril replacement.

    • Volume12

      I feel quite confident in saying the LEO was never coming in round 1.

  388. KD

    Seattle Seahawks: L.J. Collier, DE, TCU D+ Grade
    “I thought the Seahawks would be on the clock for the 2020 NFL Draft by the time they made this pick. And it’s not a good one at that. Daniel Jeremiah just mentioned that L.J. Collier was his 56th-ranked player, and that matches my projection, as I had him No. 58. This is yet another reach in the 2019 NFL Draft. Collier was just a 1-year starter at TCU and just seems to be a solid rotational defensive end who thrives against the run. Seattle should have moved down and selected Collier or someone similar, though to the team’s credit, it already traded down twice.”

    As I said, I like Walter, be he can be a bit emotionally involved in his own draft board.

    • SoCal12

      I like the content of Walter’s website but I cant stand the guy’s personality and how full of himself he is. He’s like the uncle who thinks he’s way funnier than he actually is, and thinks he’s right about everything.

      • KD

        Totally agree. Though I think Walter is a good guy and gets good info, he does get too personal with regards to his own opinions. Which is why i find his draft grades funny.

    • Volume12

      It’s not great value and I like Collier a lot.

      • Kenny Sloth

        I would’ve loved him a half round later

        Remember when Bruce Irvin was a reach until we learned the Jets were about to take him in the first and most teams considered him the best pass rusher available that year.

    • MyChestIsBeastmode

      Good. Reminds me of the Russel draft when we got a flat out F from most pundits. In hindsight RW and BWagz weren’t too shabby. Time will tell, but here’s hoping Collier balls out and we can watch the national (and local) pundits eat crow.

  389. HawksBill

    No one had a 1st round grade on him, so a business as usual for an early pick for the hawks.

  390. Sean Vernon

    When you look at the past drafts through 2013, we actually haven’t been that great.

    http://www.drafthistory.com/index.php/teams/seahawks

    Best selections were JReed & TLockett and both were trade ups, not trade downs. Clark fell to us but otherwise….

    I love Flowers and hope he comes on. T2 and Shaq have upside, too. Otherwise, what have we drafted in past 5 yrs?

    • Tony

      Wow you’re right! Theres like hardly any potential HOF’s! Solid drafts net starters and role players. Super amazing awesome drafts net HOF players with game wrecking ability. Cant expect that everytime. Hawks process is good, and they target who they like.

  391. Paul Cook

    The Hawks have never equaled Earl Thomas and Russell Okung in the first round. And that was Schneider’s and Carrol’s first, wasn’t it? In that first round, they actually picked the big named/blue chips that were there to be had.

    • MyChestIsBeastmode

      They have never had that high of picks since that year.

    • Madmark

      They did have number 6 and 14 at the time with needs everywhere.

    • sdcoug

      I mean, when do we ever have the 6th and 14th pick in the First round? Not sure there’s a comparison

  392. neil

    I think I would have preferred taking Montaze Sweat at 21 and trading the 29th to the Giants. Edge rush was # 1 priority. We would have lost 2 4th round picks, but Sweat was one of the best in the draft. As far as I know his medical condition was misdiagnosed at the combine, and we got a 2nd and 5th from the Giants anyway.

    • Paul Cook

      I was kind of thinking Sweat myself there, too. But what do I know? I had no idea lj was such a stud.

    • Hawktalker#1

      I was thinking the same thing myself.

      However if the difference between Collier and Sweat is not huge, we might be better off the way we are now.

  393. Ely

    John Schneider: big cliff after the 3rd round…
    Also John Schneider: let’s trade for as many 4th round picks as we can!

    • Volume12

      That cracks me up so much I can’t even tell you.

      Maybe they come up in the 3rd for someone, but I hope it ‘s him seeing the board fall a big into the 4th round.

    • Andrew Taylor

      Lying season … not sure whether Schnieder was telling the truth about the cliff. At this stage I will wait and see how the rest of the draft goes.. then watch and see how the picks fit in during training camp and into the season. I have huge respect for Pete an how he integrates players into the lineup and John is a top notch talent evaluator and GM. What I am somewhat surprised about is that the Hawks seem to be moving away from some sparky players and combine results and looking more at tape and how the players actually play than just their measurables.

    • charlietheunicorn

      He was referring to DL prospects specifically. I doubt he said their were not great prospects at other positions, such as CB, OL or WR.

  394. Volume12

    Let us never forget. Dave Gettleman galaxy brained himself.

    Traded arguably one of if not the best Nose tackle in the league last year and then swapped OBJ for a… what’s that you say? Nose tackle. 😂😂😂

    Dumpster fire.

    Sometimes I get this gnawing feeling that the Hawks think they know more than anyone else about the overlooked players in the draft.

    They needed a DL and got one. Problem is the DL is still worse today than it was a week ago. More work to do but Schneider did say he loved the DL depth in this draft and said it’ll be good through the end of the 3rd round (then a big drop-off). That means they should be adding another DL later tomorrow.

    This leads me to believe it’s time for an Ohio State WR early tomorrow. Or perhaps another trade down and still getting their receiver.

    I like the trades down because now they have picks for other spots we haven’t talked about as much such as getting a guard. Currently, we have two starters who are older, with injury history, and not signed long-term and a solid back-up who is injury prone (and a back-up who seems to be a second round bust). Would be good to get a (potentially) good guard with one of those fourth round picks.

    They are getting younger which always translates into getting hungrier, too (which really benefitted them this past year). If they play their cards right, they can right this ship in terms of being legit SB contenders again (not simply contenders to be good and maybe make the playoffs – how spoiled we’ve become, right?).

      They do their best work on day 2-3. If anyone needs proof look at their 5th and 6th round picks last year.

      All-pro caliber punter, a high ceiling LEO who came on like gangbusters in the last quarter of the season when most teams are playing their best ball, and a college safety who they converted to corner that had no business being as good as he was year 1.

        You don’t think I know that?

          Lol.

          Of course I do. I highly respect your opinion and writing. I was agreeing with you and probably shoulda put ‘for people who don’t think they do their best work on day 2-3.

    Shouldn’t this: Pick #30 was traded to the New York Giants for #132 & #142
    Read: Pick #30 was traded to the New York Giants for #37 & #132 & #142?

    Might also need to update your list of current picks as well.

    Nice work!!!

    I’m super disapointed with the returns of the tradebacks. Collier isn’t as good as Clark.

    • Tony

      Clark = 10+ sacks last 3 yrs.
      Collier = 0 sacks in his whole NFL career!

      This checks out.

      No one in this draft is my man. Time my tell, but it’s gonna be a #’s game to replace him. At least for now.

    • Madmark

      I think they took the best deals that were offered and to be honest we get Collier and 2nd next year for Clark and still working our first round for more picks. It works for me.

    • Lil’stink

      That’s not how this works, though.

    The Hawks really love and are committed to that competition thing. They are always bringing in a bunch of young and hungry and overlooked players and coaching them up to compete with each other. I have to say, in all fairness, it’s worked out well for them and us fans.

    • CaptainJack

      Finding late round gems is fantastic.

      Blowing the first round year after year is not.

      • Paul Cook

        The Hawks are just not the sexy draft pickers near the top of the draft board. They do the later rounds better than most all teams, however. They have their formula. And it has worked. It just hasn’t been buzz worthy at the top of the draft board since Thomas and Okung.

          The idea we do great late round work is antiquated. There is a reason we lose all our preseason games now, we have no debth and that is due to years of sub par drafting. It wasn’t the case in years 1-3. We have done a good job with our high d
