Second round

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Third round

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is not good news…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


  1. TomLPDX

    Go Hawks!

  2. KD


    • Hawkin

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

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

  3. Madmark

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

    • Cameron

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

      • Madmark

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

        • Ben Ft. Worth

          Seattle makes a TRADE!! I’m calling it!!!

        • CaptainJack

          I remember reading about that

  13. Volume12

    Man. They got him and Budda?

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      Cards always steal my LSU boys or take my favorite Washington school Huskies lately. At least they staying away from my Frogs!

      • CaptainJack

        Oh my, how many college teams do you root for?

  14. charlietheunicorn

    Colts going WR, very likely

  15. KD

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

    • KD

      Thanks for un-necessarily dragging that out Reggie.

    • TomLPDX

      Nope, Reggie was in your face and it was fun to watch…

  16. charlietheunicorn

    Reggie Wayne… LMFAO

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      HAHA!!! HE CALLED’EM OUT!!!!!!

  17. Volume12

    Reggie with the shade. Slay ’em king!

  18. CaptainJack

    Rock ya-sin

    Without a doubt the coolest name in the draft.

  19. RobeND

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

  20. CaptainJack

    Jawaan Taylor to the jaguars.

    Taking the local man with major medical flags

  21. Volume12

    Seattle gonna go DB with the run on ’em?

    Take a WR?

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

    • MJL

      the future is wide open…free fallin’

    • DC

      Left field would be Ford or a TE.

    • Volume12

      Not a ton of speed guys have gone. Seattle gonna continue that trend or buck it?

    • mishima


  22. SoCal12

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

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

    • Hawktalker#1

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

  23. charlietheunicorn

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

    trade back very likely.

  24. CaptainJack

    Metcalf to niners?

    • Trevor

      Hope not because if he does figure things out he could be scary.

  25. John_s

    JS with the trade card on Seahawks cam.

  26. CaptainJack

    Hawks trade down?

  27. Trevor

    I think Samuel, Campbell or Metcalf to SF.

    • MJL

      good call!!

  28. Volume12

    9ers gotta go WR.

  29. Volume12

    Love that pick.

  30. CaptainJack

    Round 2 is my favorite round.

    Always has been.

  31. DC

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

  32. charlietheunicorn

    Panthers trade

    • charlietheunicorn

      #47 and #100 looks like

  33. Volume12

    Hahaha! OFC!

    • mishima

      LOL. Love it. Makes too much sense.

  34. SoCal12

    Yup trade down. Still lots of guys left.

  35. JohnH

    Panthers traded for 37, what did we get?

    • Don

      A couple of back ups.

      • j

        Instead of the one backup we would have picked at 37.

    • Volume12

      47 and 77

  36. CaptainJack

    Winovich? Thornhill? Furguson? Gardner-Johnson?

  37. MJL

    trade with Carolina..

  38. Ben Ft. Worth

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

  39. chris banta

    10 spots is a big drop!

  40. MJL

    we got their #47

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      What’d we get?!

  41. Seanzpsi

    Seahawks get 47 and 77!!!!

    • Ben Ft. Worth


    • Trevor

      That is a solid tradeback.

    • DC


  42. chris banta

  43. charlietheunicorn

    Raiders trade pick… :O

  44. DC

    Question answered Rik… Yes!

    • Rik

      Boom! Great trade.

  45. MJL

    and their 3rd round (#14)

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      #47 Winovich
      #77 T. Hill
      #92 M. Tell

  46. James Kupihea

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

  47. JohnH

    Panthers took Greg Little.

    Still don’t know what we got for 37.

    • charlietheunicorn

      47 / 77

      • JohnH


  48. Trevor

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

    • Don

      Yea, and if we are lucky, we can trade those 4 and eventually grab the entire 7th round. That would be the best!

      • Hawktalker#1

        Easy there Homie

        • Don

          Yes, I should know better. Just frustrating to draft whoever is left over from the scraps.

  49. CaptainJack

    Wow, picked up another third.

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

    • Volume12

      Thought he was massively overrated.

  50. MJL

    love that trade…

  51. Cameron

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

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      The run on OL went later than Schneider thought!

    • charlietheunicorn

      This is good stuff right here. Feeling like the draft really is opening up for Seattle now.

    • Volume12

      That’s a great trade.

      They need to stay put from here on out IMO.

      • Ben Ft. Worth

        Or move up to get “THEIR GUY!”

  52. CaptainJack

    Lots of players going that I have no interest in.

    Feels good.

  53. Greg Haugsven

    Finally got another third rounder.

  54. Trevor

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

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

    4 picks between 47-93 would be sweet.

  55. Steve Nelsen

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

  56. Rob Staton

    What an outstanding trade.

    #77 to move down ten spots.

    Brilliant start to day two.

    • Kyle Towle

      I’m so happy with this!

    • Trevor

      +10000 and the best part I don’t think anyone they really like has gone so far in Rd #2

  57. Daniel Vandenbroek

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

  58. CaptainJack

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

  59. Paul Cook

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

    • CaptainJack

      I think they’ll trade into the third?

  60. Greg Haugsven

    Trade chart value:

    Pick 37 worth: 162

    Pick 47 and 77 worth: 184

    Not sure if we gave them something back.

  61. CaptainJack

    Cody ford to bills.

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

    • MJL

      yup..all of our targets are still there..

  62. SoCal12

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

  63. Hawkin

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

  64. charlietheunicorn

    Here is what Seattle has right now in 2019

    • Don

      We drafted Flo from Progressive Insurance?

  65. neil

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

    • Volume12

      They fleeced Carolina man

      • charlietheunicorn

        ditto, solid trade for loss of 10 spots

        • Don

          Well, points don’t line up on the field and tackle. We will see who got the better player after the Hawks draft.

      • Ben Ft. Worth

        This is what happens when you have Draft capital!!!!

    • Trevor

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

      • neil

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

    • SoCal12

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

      • Trevor


        • Don

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

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

      • neil

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

    • MJL

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

      • Madmark

        that was the win they didn’t get witj the first 2 first round picks.

    • Cameron

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

  66. Trevor

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

    • charlietheunicorn

      Parris Campbell 😉

    • Madmark

      Hill all the way

      • charlietheunicorn

        Target him with the 1st 3rd round pick

        • Greg Haugsven

          Lots of options like you guys said:

          Juan Thornhill
          Chancey Johnson
          Parris Campbell
          Terry McLaurin
          Trysten Hill
          Chase Winovich

  67. Volume12

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

    • Volume12

      * grit over speed

    • charlietheunicorn

      I’m shocked a QB hasn’t gone top of second round……. should have 1 coming off the board soon.

      • Volume12

        Gonna be surprised if Oakland doesn’t take Lock. They requested to work with him at the SR bowl.

        • charlietheunicorn

          I wouldn’t hate the pick, 2nd round is fine to take a developmental guy.

  68. CaptainJack

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

    • HawksBill

      He was in the VMAC for visit so they must have liked him.

      • HawksBill

        they didn’t seem disappointed that he was picked.

    • Spireite_Seahawk

      He’s a guy that’s been rising up draft boards. Size seems to be big factor with this chap.

    • MJL

      I recall some people on the board liked him..”Seahawkey”..long arms, etc

  69. CaptainJack

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

    • SoCal12

      If it’s Drew Lock I will laugh.

  70. Trevor

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

    • Volume12

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

      • Volume12

        * u know

      • Trevor

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

  71. charlietheunicorn

    #47 430 + #77 205

    for #37 530

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

  72. SoCal12

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

  73. DC

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

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

    • MJL more trade down feels like it’s in the cards

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      Dallas wants Winovich, Trysten Hill and J. Ferguson!

    • Shady_Hawkster

      I would faint like a southern belle if that happened. I got back issues man, my health can’t take that

  74. Volume12


  75. SoCal12

    Denvers gotta pick Lock now right?

  76. Troy

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

    • Paul Cook

      Tis true.

  77. DC

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

    • Don

      I have another F word in mind.


  78. Paul Cook

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

    • DC

      Maybe 2 handfuls.

  79. charlietheunicorn

    Seattle making shrewd moves so far

  80. Coleslaw

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

  81. CaptainJack

    Here comes Drew Lock

  82. SoCal12

    Oof. Not even Elway likes Lock it seems.

  83. Volume12

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

    2019 and 2020 combined picks:

    • Volume12

      That should be one more 2 and one less 1

  84. Spireite_Seahawk

    Is it just me or is Risner a holding machine?

  85. RobeND

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

  86. Volume12

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

    • CaptainJack

      I remember Penny had every hat

      • Volume12

        I thought so. It just didn’t look like every teams hat was there. Colours just been the camera angle too.

    • Cameron

      They do.

  87. Ben Ft. Worth

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

  88. CaptainJack

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

    Such an awesome feeling.

  89. DC

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

  90. charlietheunicorn

    Called it

  91. HawksBill

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

  92. Volume12

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

    • DC

      Elway read the name wrong, he thought he was drafting ‘Luck’

      When he puts his reading glasses on he’s gonna be pissed

      • Volume12


  93. SoCal12

    There it is. Spoke too soon.

  94. MJL

    c’mon need a backup qb too!!

  95. CaptainJack

    First big WHO? Pick of the draft for me

    • charlietheunicorn

      Tavai is more an old school LB / tackling machine

  96. charlietheunicorn

    There goes a LB a few of you guys really liked

  97. HawksBill

    wow, Tavai went early

  98. Coach

    Uh oh… Will Lions take Winovich?

  99. H

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

  100. Cameron

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

    • charlietheunicorn

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

  101. Volume12

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

    • Coleslaw

      Extremely so. I want another trade down lol. Unless you want your guy.

      • charlietheunicorn

        It feels like they are trading back trying to match up with value on a skill position guy….

        • Coleslaw

          Terry McLaurin instantly comes to mind. Dawson Knox?

          • charlietheunicorn


      • Volume12

        Nah. They got 21 picks the next 2 years combined. They don’t need more picks at this point. The cupboard ain’t bare. And if it, we need to have a serious discussion about PC/JS.

    • SoCal12

      So many guys left. This was the perfect trade back

    • Rik

      It’s breaking great so far!

    • Don

      Pleasantly surprised.

  102. Coleslaw

    This is lit. I love this draft.

  103. Edgar

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

  104. JC3

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

    • CaptainJack

      Like we say, no.

    • Volume12

      Talk about a fan favorite. That dudes personality is crazy. Charisma dripping out his a*$.

    • DC

      Two thumbs up if they do!! Would show some real vision regarding that unit. I’m always a sucker for a (relatively) great line.

  105. Rik

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

    • charlietheunicorn

      He just took a hit, all is good

      • Volume12

        corn my man. You know Pete is high on life.

        • charlietheunicorn

          He is JACKED about this draft

          • Volume12

            lol. FIRED UP

  106. Trevor

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

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

  107. charlietheunicorn

    Hated Patriots on the clock >.>

  108. CaptainJack

    Pats take Winovich here right?

  109. MJL

    whoa..Pats snuck in here

  110. charlietheunicorn

    irv smith? Pats?

  111. CaptainJack

    Who the bleep is JoeJuan Williams

    Teams reaching for DBs now

  112. MJL

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

  113. Rik

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

    • Volume12

      That was a fantastic pick.

  114. CaptainJack

    Metcalf still on the board…

  115. Rob Staton

    So much talent left on the board.

    Trade down again.

    • Hawktalker#1

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

  116. Volume12

    Cleveland going DB or adding even more weapons?

  117. DC

    We still have our pick of the LEO candidates.

    • DC

      Or Butler?

      It’s dizzying how many cool players are left.

  118. Rob Staton

    Cleveland traded above Seattle.

    • Volume12

      Seattle going DB?

      • Rowdy

        Or seattle wouldnt trade

        • Volume12

          Man how many more picks do y’all want? lol.

  119. Ely

    Deandre Walker, Trystan Hill or Winovich please! 🙏🏼

  120. chris banta

    hawks clapping

  121. CaptainJack

    I think we wanted Joejuan Williams.

    Well I think we trade down again.

    • Hawktalker#1


  122. RobeND

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

  123. CaptainJack

    The run on DBs has been INSANE

    • Volume12

      All corners too. This round anyways.

  124. Hawktalker#1

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

  125. charlietheunicorn

    Time for commercial break, Seattle is picking :O

  126. tgrans

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

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

  127. regan sayer

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

  128. SoCal12

    Who’s the guy here?

  129. CHawk Talker Eric

    My gut is telling me Parris Campbell at 47

  130. CaptainJack

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

    • CaptainJack

      Long corner

  131. Trevor

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

  132. Ben Ft. Worth

    Chase Winovich! Pleaseeeeee

  133. charlietheunicorn


  134. Volume12

    There’s their DB

  135. KD

    WOW! Didn’t see that coming

  136. Ben Ft. Worth

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

    • Hawktalker#1

      Dude. Do you really need to drop an F bomb in every post you make?

  137. HawksBill

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

  138. CaptainJack

    What the bleep!

    I absolutely hate this pick.

  139. Rik

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

  140. Volume12

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

    • Volume12

      And it was not a guy they were connected to. Fits their profile, but the trend continues.

      • Volume12

        I stand corrected.

  141. Lupe Green

    Haha, you gotta love it. Never fails!

  142. charlietheunicorn

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

  143. H


  144. RobeND

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

    • HawksBill

      You expect that with the ‘Hawks?

  145. Paul Cook

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

  146. SoCal12

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

  147. WALL UP

    Physicality…The Hawks are getting back to their roots.

  148. MJL

    would’ve made a nice 4th rounder…

  149. charlietheunicorn

    Funs over, about 1.5 hours until next pick : /

  150. Trevor

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

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

    • mishima

      Collier, Blair…D’Andre Walker, next?

      BAMF à trois.

  151. chris banta

    this was brock huards guy!

  152. CHawk Talker Eric

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

  153. CaptainJack

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

    But in round 4.

    I also called out DB as the first pick today.

    But I expected Thornhill or Gardner-Johnson.

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

  154. Volume12

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

  155. Ben Ft. Worth

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

    • troy

      please tell me how to FEEL

    • Aaron

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

  156. Ishmael

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

    • Mike

      I always like that about Kam

    • Volume12

      Yup. Got ejected from 3 games. Plays pissed off.

    • HawksGal

      That was pretty early for Blair but I like the pick, this is a Coleman replacement and Marquis can punish, he’s been compared to Bam Bam Kam by several writers. Good pick, early but solid pick.

  157. neil

    A pick at #47 Thank you!!

  158. Madmark

    Always with the negative vibes marty!

    • Hawksince77

      Nice…Kelly’s Heroes…a longtime favorite

  159. Trevor

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

  160. Bigten

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

  161. CaptainJack

    Trend this draft:

    Not looking for the sexy names.

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

    Still wanting to win by being more physical.

  162. Rokas

    Awesome pick. We need some boom.

  163. Volume12

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

    • Trevor

      Next year! THe have an awesome front office now.

      • DC

        Assuming Mr Glass stays healthy.

  164. Dawgma

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

  165. Paul Cook

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

  166. CaptainJack

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

  167. SoCal12

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

    • CaptainJack


    • charlietheunicorn

      skill position. Seattle has a history of these type in the 3rd round….. see Lockett as a recent example.

      • mishima

        D’Andre Walker or Trysten Hill.

    • Aaron

      Hoping for TE or WR, but we still need a run stuffing DT

  168. CaptainJack

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

    Not sure on where he plays in our defense though.

    • Aaron

      FS or NB most likely

  169. John_s

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

  170. Volume12

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

    • Trevor

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

    • SoCal12

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

  171. Madmark

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

  172. Trevor

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

  173. Producehawk

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

    • Mark

      But i I’m talking about Blair!

    • Kyle

      I’m gonna get you sucka reference. nice.

  174. Volume12

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

  175. HawksBill

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

    • Walter Rucker

      Wow!! That was without a running start

  176. Don

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

  177. CHawk Talker Eric

    Carl Eller was a BAMF. Purple people eater indeed

  178. ZB

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

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

    • Volume12

      Man, what?

    • mishima

      Tell me you’re new here.

    • Troy

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

    • Hawktalker#1

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

      • ZB

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

  179. Volume12

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

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

    Marvin Gaye clue: MAR-vin Gaye
    MARquise Blair

    • MJL

      that first one is a bit of a stretch..hahahahaha

    • mishima

      And I thought Daniel Jones was a reach.

  180. Gohawks5151

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

    • MJL

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

  181. Volume12

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

    • mishima

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

      • Volume12

        Fair point.

    • Kyle

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

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

  182. Volume12

    SoCal12, for u my man.

    • SoCal12

      Oh my, I do declare this Blair is giving me the vapors.

  183. David Ashton

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

  184. CaptainJack

    Bengals made a pick there.

    Sample is good.

  185. Justin Lu

    There goes Sample. Good pickup for the Bengals.

  186. H

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

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

  187. Madmark

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

  188. Coleslaw

    Joe Mixon is gonna run wild this year.

  189. Trevor

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

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

    Love it!

    • MJL

      I predict a lot of fist fights during training camp!!!

  190. Troy

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

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

    • CaptainJack

      I think it’s rubbish

    • RobeND

      No pass rush specialist to replace Clark!

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

    • Hawktalker#1

      Dumpster data.

      • Troy

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

        • Hawktalker#1

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

          • Troy

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

    • AlaskaHawk

      It’s missing Dexter Lawrence! 🙂

  191. RobeND

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

  192. H

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

  193. Casey

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

  194. charlietheunicorn

    23 picks to go : /

  195. King_Rajesh


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

    • Justin Lu

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

      • King_Rajesh

        Literally all the WRs.

        Hakeem Butler please.

    • RealRhino2

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

      • King_Rajesh

        Tired of Russell having to throw to midgets though…

        Get a BIG BOI for the Red Zone and for jump balls.

        • Cameron

          Campbell is 6’0″, hardly a midget…

    • Troy

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

  196. BobbyK

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

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

    • Rob Staton

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

      • BobbyK

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

  197. Volume12

    So Cleveland did jump Seattle because they went DB.

  198. Trevor

    Metcalf, Campbell and McLaurin all still on the board wow

    • H

      Betting one of them goes to the Cheifs here.

      • H

        Or not lol. My WR evaluation is taking a licking this year, at least I had Deebo high.

  199. drewdawg11

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

    • HawksBill

      Long way to their next pick. If u really like the guy you got to pull the trigger.

  200. McZ

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

    • CaptainJack

      Trust me, I don’t like it either.

      But I get it. Culture pick.

    • teejmo

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

      • McZ

        Indiscipline is not a culture, it is the end of it.

  201. GoHawksDani

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

  202. CaptainJack

    Chiefs made a good pick there

    • charlietheunicorn

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

  203. King_Rajesh

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

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

  204. CaptainJack

    Run at WR has begun

  205. Hank


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

  206. Rik

    Dang cowboys!

  207. H


  208. HawksBill

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

  209. HawkfaninMT

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

  210. drewdawg11

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

  211. Chawk Talker Eric

    Nice pick for Big D

  212. Shadow

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

  213. charlietheunicorn

    Damn you DALLAS.. DAYUM Youuuuuuuuuuuuu

  214. King_Rajesh

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


  215. charlietheunicorn


  216. Cameron

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

  217. Trevor

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

  218. Ishmael

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

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

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

    • MJL

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

      • CaptainJack

        Adderly played at Delaware.

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

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

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

    • CaptainJack

      This is a good take.

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

    • Rob Staton

      Yes, well said.

  219. JohnH

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

  220. Rik

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

    • CaptainJack

      OUR faves

      not necessarily the seahawk’s faves

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

  221. RokS

    Back to back heart break. Just like that.

  222. Sneekes

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

  223. Trevor

    The Colts have crushed the last Two drafts!

  224. astro.domine

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

  225. CHawk Talker Eric

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

    • Volume12

      *raises hand* and Trev.

  226. Paul Cook

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

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

    For sure…

    Add to that these picks and FA’s…

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

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

  227. Don

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

    • MJL

      not to mention he is related to Herb Adderly.. ;<)

      • OaklandHawk

        Cannonball Adderley?

  228. charlietheunicorn

    I’ll make a wild prediction

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

  229. Volume12

    Man the NFCW is loading up on Udub prospects.

  230. CaptainJack

    Happy for Rapp.

    But… why the Rams…

    • Paul Cook

      True. The only bummer about that.

    • McZ

      This is worse to us than Murray to AZ.
      And AZ just added Isabella… next to Kirk.

  231. King_Rajesh

    Who is Wilson going to throw to this year?

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

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

    • HawkfaninMT

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

      • King_Rajesh

        We don’t pick for another 15 spots… Need to trade up.

    • JohnH

      Way early to say Moore is washed up man.

      • King_Rajesh

        Where was he in the back half of the year?

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

        • JohnH

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

    • DC

      8ish more picks brother.

      • King_Rajesh

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

    • CaptainJack

      Way to put a negative spin on it.

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

      • Hawktalker#1

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

    • Cameron

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

    • lil’stink

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

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

    • Sneekes

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

  232. Paul Cook

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

    • SoCal12

      They keep going to division rivals. I am sad.

    • Don

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

      • JohnH

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

      • RobeND

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

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

        • Group captain mandrake

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

  233. Volume12


    Arizona becoming Team mini?

  234. Eli

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

  235. Volume12

    KC got Frank Clark and Thornhill?!?

    • RobeND

      Yeah but it will cost them about 22m a year.

  236. mishima

    Rapp and Weddle. Weird.

  237. Tony

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

    • Paul Cook

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

  238. MJL

    there goes Thornhill..

    • CaptainJack

      We weren’t taking two DBs

    King Rajesh you got your wish.

    • King_Rajesh


  240. Gohawks5151


  241. HawksBill

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

  242. charlietheunicorn

    Here comes a WR!

  243. BobbyK

    Hawks up!

  244. Volume12

    Trade up!

  245. MJL

    Hawks picking!!

  246. Greg Haugsven

    Please be Winovich this time.

  247. H

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

    • JC3

      I think Isabella is the worse pick of this entire round.

  248. Volume12

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

  249. James Kupihea

    Hehehehe, I called the 2nd round trade up !

    • Volume12

      I thought it would be like within the first few picks in the 3rd.

  250. charlietheunicorn

    Metcalf or McClaurin

  251. sdcoug

    Wow. Jake Browning?? Wtf hawks

    • Gohawks5151

      Hahaha. Troll lv 100

  252. Rik

    War room is fist bumping. Gonna be interesting …

    • Rik

      DK Metcalf … wow!

  253. MJL

    gave up our 3rd…

    • King_Rajesh

      Whatever we paid is worth it.


  254. Volume12


    • charlietheunicorn

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

    • Greg Haugsven

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

  255. King_Rajesh




    • charlietheunicorn


  256. Volume12

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

    • Volume12

  257. MJL


  258. Hawk Scott

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

  259. mishima

    Great value.

  260. Ryan

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

  261. Paul Cook

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

  262. H

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

  263. CaptainJack


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

  264. Eli

    The ultimate boom or bust pick. Love it.

  265. Gohawks5151

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

  266. Greg Haugsven

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

    • Volume12

      Traded 77 and 114 I thought

    • Greg Haugsven

      nevermind, its now gone. waiting to 92.

  267. Hawktalker#1

    Strange pick

    • CaptainJack

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

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

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

  268. Paul Cook

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

  269. CaptainJack

    I have been MONEY calling the positions though.

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

    Feeling pretty good about that.

  270. bigten

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

    • HawksGal

      #118 we gave up.

    • CaptainJack

      We traded up with our first third, we just had to give away a fourth.

      We still have two thirds and three fourths, and two fifths.

  271. Trevor

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

    If he can stay healthy this could be a steal.

    • Volume12

      I don’t either. Traits on traits.

      If ya gotta make him red zone specialist do it.

    • H

      He can do curls, posts, go routes and slants thats enough in our offence.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      He’s really quick and really long. Perfect for goal line quick throws.

  272. lil’stink

    Daryl Turner 2.0

    • Edgar


    • DC

      Minus the coke hopefully.

  273. RobeND

    Lockett and Metcalf can makecteamsvpay for loading the box.

  274. WALL UP

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

    • MJL

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

      • WALL UP

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

  275. Mark Souza

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

    • CaptainJack

      Way to put the most negative spin on it possible.

  276. MJL

    nice pick by the Cards…

  277. Rob Staton

    Funny thing is — had they drafted in this order…

    #1 Metcalf
    #2 Collier
    #3 Blair

    Most fans would be going nuts and love it.

    • H

      Lol, so true.

    • Stevo

      good point!

    • Trevor

      Lol so true.

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

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

    • Hawk Scott

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

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

      • Rob Staton

        Thanks buddy

    • Don

      Good point.

    • Shady_Hawkster

      You just blew my mind Rob

    • Eburgz

      Very very true.

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

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

      • Rob Staton

        Thanks man

    • chris

      some people will complain about anything!

  278. Don

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

  279. William Herold

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

  280. charlietheunicorn

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

    RB? TE? OG? DE?

    • charlietheunicorn

      WR Boykin? TE Josh Oliver? OG/C Michael Jordan?

  281. Volume12

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

  282. Eli

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

  283. Eburgz

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

  284. King_Rajesh


    Damn though, I wanted him real bad

  285. Shady_Hawkster

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

  286. Volume12

    Look. Is he raw? Yes.

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

    • charlietheunicorn

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

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

      2019 draft = 100% Lit

    • Tk

      Absolute steal

  287. GoHawksDani

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

    • MJL

      what he said…

    • Eli

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

    • King_Rajesh

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

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

      • GoHawksDani

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

        • H

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

    • H

      Funchess: 4.7 40
      DK: 4.33 40

      What is that comp even about?

      • CaptainJack

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

      • GoHawksDani

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

    • Eburgz

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

  288. BobbyK

    Metcalf can tilt the field.

  289. 12th chuck

    leo/linebacker please!!

  290. Dawgma

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

  291. Volume12

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

  292. Pran

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

  293. CaptainJack

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

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

    – Bill Belichick

    • charlietheunicorn

      Put the player in a position to succeed….

    • lil’stink

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

      • CaptainJack


      • Eli

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

        • GoHawksDani

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

          • Michael (CLT)

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

      • John_s

        *cough* Josh Gordon *cough*

      • chris bant

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

    • HawksGal


  294. JohnH

    I hope they get Walker or one of the big DTs

  295. CaptainJack

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

  296. Rob Staton

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

    • Volume12


    • Ishmael


  297. Trevor

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

    Nasty heavy handed DE
    Head Hunting Safety
    Freak WR

    • MJL

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

      • Trevor

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

        • Lil’stink

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

          • WallaSean

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

    • DC

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

    • Lil’stink

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

      • Hawksince77

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

    • WallaSean

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

      • Justagamer602

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

  298. red

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

  299. charlietheunicorn

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

  300. Ishmael

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

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

  301. Trevor

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

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

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

    • GoHawksDani

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

  302. CaptainJack

    Watch this video before whining about Metcalf.

    • lil’stink

      Such a ridiculously inaccurate, lazy comparison based on superficialities.

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

      • CaptainJack

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

        • Lil’stink

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

        • hawkdawg

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

          • Lil’stink

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

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

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

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

      • Hawksince77

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

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

      • neil

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

  303. OaklandHawk

    My remaining mock, dedicated to Seahawks Twitter:

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

    PFA – Myles Gaskin, Travis Homer, Darwin Thompson

  304. AlaskaHawk

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

  305. Trevor

    Would love to see Walker with the next pick !

    • DC


    • Hawqs

      I’m calling it!! Seahawks pick Dru Samia next

    • H

      Imagine 🙏 I’d lose my mind.

  306. Volume12

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

    Rams are killing it.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Was just thinking Gurley & Henderson…watch out

      • mishima

        Was thinking CJ Anderson and Henderson. Gurley might be done.

        • OaklandHawk

          CJ is with Detroit. Would be tough for him to star for LA.

  307. Frank

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

  308. King_Rajesh

    Hearing Schefty is saying that Baldwin might be done.

    • King_Rajesh


      Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter

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

    • MJL

      very sad if so..what a warrior!!

      • Justagamer602

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

      • Edgar

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

  309. SoCal12

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

    • lil’stink

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

      • CaptainJack

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

        • Lil’stink

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

          • hawkdawg

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

            • Lil’stink

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

      • MJL

        so this guy is Bob Hayes 2.0???

      • Eli

        might want to change your screen name to big’stink

      • HawksGal

        Wasn’t a problem for Calvin Johnson.

        • lil’stink

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

          • King_Rajesh

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

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

  310. CaptainJack

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

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

    Perfect fit.

  311. BobbyK

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

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

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

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

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

    • H

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

      • BobbyK

        You just agreed with me.

        • H

          I more thought of it as expanding on your thoughts. But if so I apologise, it’s 3am here and I didn’t sleep much yesterday.

          • BobbyK

            It’s fine. Just great to know they have a freak like this. Definite field tilter. If that’s a word.

    • HawkfaninMT

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

      • HawkfaninMT


  312. HawkfaninMT

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

  313. MJL

    Nice pick by the Pack…

  314. CaptainJack

    Sternberger will be good for the packers.

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

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

  315. Volume12

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

  316. MJL

    there goes McLaurin..weep

  317. Volume12

    NE stays playing chess while everyone else plays checkers

    • Trevor

      He had to e a Patriot didnt he.

  318. Trevor

    The Redskins have my highest rated draft class so far.

    Montez Sweat
    Terry Mclaurin

    Now that is a solid draft.

    • Don

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

    • RealRhino2

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

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

  319. CaptainJack

    I liked McLaurin as much as the next guy but…

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

    • MJL

      who are the three again??

    • BobbyK

      Nobody cared that John Smoltz was the third best pitcher on the Braves pitching staff after Maddux and Glavine.

  320. MJL

    ..and of course the Pats get Winovich

  321. CaptainJack

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

  322. MJL

    First Badger!! (sorry..alumni)

  323. CaptainJack

    Chase a patriot?

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

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

    • MJL

      “I’d rather die than miss a bowl game”

      he had me right there…

  324. GoHawksDani

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

    • HawksBill

      Careful now, Aaron Curry bawled liked a baby when he was picked.

      • GoHawksDani

        :DDD Not saying I’m loving it, just made peace with it 🙂

  325. HawkfaninMT

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

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

  326. charlietheunicorn

    Ximines with the Seahawks pick?

    • Volume12

      Possibly. Walker, Miller, Crosby are all still out there too. Justin Hollins as well.

      • charlietheunicorn

        Walker is still available… hummmm

  327. WallaSean

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

  328. JJ

    Time to watch for a de run

  329. charlietheunicorn

    Seahawks pick within the next hour 🙁

  330. Volume12

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

  331. CaptainJack

    I am three for three.

    Next pick will be LEO.

    • HawksBill

      D’Andre Walker?

    • charlietheunicorn

      Walker fit the LEO spot?

  332. Volume12

    Really good, solid pick for Detroit.

  333. Roland T Jose

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

  334. Don

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

  335. Rob Staton

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

    Those fourth round picks are looking sweet at the moment.

    • charlietheunicorn

      4th round looks like it could have some great value pick potential now.

    • HawkfaninMT

      Right?!? Just keep on falling guys!

    • Coleslaw

      Heck yeah, we can go any direction we want, double dipping included. Gonna be the coolest day 3 ever!

  336. Drewdawg11

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

    • MJL

      we needed somebody to fight Blair in training camp… ;<)

  337. Barry

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

    • Hawktalker#1

      Yep, they definitely know what they’re doing.

  338. CaptainJack

    Might just be a rumor…

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

    • charlietheunicorn

      Only after May 7….. Keep the former GB Packer in mind as well, Perry.

      • MJL

        I live in Packer Country and Perry isn’t well regarded from what I can tell. Sometimes a change of scenery can help though…

      • charlietheunicorn

        Ansah was looking for 10M, according to Clayton.
        No way he gets that, with his injury history and possibly bum shoulder(s) he is sporting right now.

      • Spireite_Seahawk

        Is suh in play now?

    • Hawktalker#1

      Sounds credible

  339. Coleslaw

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

    • charlietheunicorn

      Saunders to KC

          That makes zero sense.

  341. mishima

    Saunders, Walker, Omenihu, Ferguson, CGJ.

    I think I want Dru Samia.

  342. Volume12

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

    Got a Tyreek Hill insurance policy too?

    • Volume12

      Jesus. lol

  344. HawksBill

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

    • charlietheunicorn

      He finally reflects a true fan…… flagon of meade winch!

    • Volume12

      How about the Indy who shouted ‘Yeah, D!’ when they selected Parris Campbell?

  345. MJL

    damn..there goes Saunders

  346. Volume12

    Thank you Baltimore!

    • H


  347. hawkdawg

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

    • sdcoug

      I’m not crying, you’re crying.

  348. CaptainJack

    Furguson is SUCH a ravens pick.

    They always snap up great players who drop.

  349. Ben Ft. Worth

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

    • mishima

      Clean it up.

  350. HawkfaninMT

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

    • Coleslaw

      5th or 2020 pick hopefully

  351. CaptainJack

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

  352. CaptainJack

    Hawks making moves baby

  353. regan sayer

    Moved up to 88.

  354. MJL

    Hawks on deck!!

  355. CaptainJack

    STELLAR pick by New England.

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

  356. HawksBill

    Would like Joe Jackson here

  357. King_Rajesh


  358. King_Rajesh


    Drafted Cody Barton, LB, Utah.

    Double dipping on Utah it seems!

  359. HawksBill


  360. CaptainJack


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

  361. Ben Ft. Worth

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

  362. Volume12


  363. Roger Davis

    I’m makin’ the call!

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

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

  364. MJL

    okay…haven’t heard of this guy

  365. CaptainJack

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

    KJ understudy

    • Mark Souza

      Glad somebody heard of him.

    • MJL

      Honorable Mention All-Pac 12!! woo hoo!!

      Have PC/JS completely lost their minds??

  366. HawksBill

    Not sure they needed to trade up for him.

  367. chris

    does anyone have any info on this guy?

    • Volume12

      Good cover LB, has some nice physicality to his game

      Was a day 3 guy for me.

  368. charlietheunicorn

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

  369. Hawktalker#1

    Very odd

  370. Hawk Scott

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

    • CaptainJack

      He was a good player for Utah, I remember my Huskies having struggles against him.

    • Mark Souza

      Nothing but shrugs from me. But that’s a wrap for the Hawks tonight.

  371. RWIII

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

  372. bigten

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

    • CaptainJack

      I’ll break it down for you.

      This draft is pretty shoddy for linebackers.

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

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

  373. drewdawg11

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

  374. HawksBill

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

  375. CaptainJack

    Rob figured it out.

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

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

    • BobbyK

      And another LB might be in jail.

      • CaptainJack

        Sadly true

  376. Ben Ft. Worth


    “I was replaced by a Zoo Animal!!”

    • Trevor

      McCafee is simply a classic .

    • Spireite_Seahawk

      We never punted so you don’t know who I am.

      McAfee has won the draft.

  377. MJL

    Not happy…

  378. CaptainJack

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

  379. CaptainJack

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

    • Volume12

      Okereke will be the better player IMO

      • CaptainJack

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

        • Volume12

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

          • CaptainJack

            yup, he has the right physical and athletic profile they look for.

  380. charlietheunicorn

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

  381. chris

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

    • CaptainJack

      Indy, they drafted a similar player right after we took Barton.

  382. chris

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

    • Volume12

      I would hope so

      • BobbyK

        No doubt. lol

  383. God of Thunder

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

  384. RobeND

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

  385. MJL

    Alright..I’m switching to to you all

  386. charlietheunicorn

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

  387. CaptainJack

    Who on earth is Trey Pipkins

  388. regan sayer

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

    • Justin Mullikin

      Bobby went to Utah State but yeah I agree with everything else

  389. RobeND

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

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

    • Volume12

      They addressed their need picks.

      DL, S, WR.

      • BobbyK

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

        • Volume12

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

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

    • charlietheunicorn

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

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

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

      • Volume12

        The round 1 talk on Grier blew my mind. Just couldn’t figure it out.

  390. Hawk Scott

    “The two Utes.”

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

  391. Volume12

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

  392. BobbyK

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

  393. chris

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

    • John_s

      I would put money on Hugh Millen lol. KJR and 710 are both doing shows at Seahawks HQ

      • Volume12

        Millen loved the Metcalf pick I bet.

      • chris

        wyman would wipe the floor with hugh millen!

    • charlietheunicorn

      I think he normally looks that way, as he would say, “too many shots to the head from when he played” 😀

  394. AlaskaHawk

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

    • Volume12

      Theres Seattle’s SAM.

  395. Gohawks5151

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

  396. charlietheunicorn

    Them Ravens having a sneaky good draft.

  397. Trevor

    Wish list for Day #3

    Deandre Walker
    Drum Samia
    Trevon Wesco
    Gary Jennings

    • Hawktalker#1

      Yes pls pls

  398. charlietheunicorn

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

    And the round should be completed by 1030 Pacific! WOOOOT

  399. HawksBill

    Would love to see cam Newton’s face right now

    • charlietheunicorn

      now that brings a smile to my face ~ Thanos

  400. charlietheunicorn


  401. Cameron

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

    • Hawktalker#1

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

      Still need a lot more pass rush.

  402. regan sayer

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

  403. CaptainJack

    Barton looks like Vander Esch

  404. Denver Hawk

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

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

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

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

    • Volume12

      Good question on CGJ.

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

    • Coleslaw

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

      • Coleslaw

        And DT. MLB

    • red

      I like these players in rounds 4 and five
