Round two

#34 TRADE with the Jacksonville Jaguars
The Seahawks moved down one spot to #35, acquiring a sixth round pick (#187). It’s unclear why Jacksonville felt obliged to make this move. They ended up selecting Cam Robinson (T, Alabama).

#35 Malik McDowell (DT, Michigan State)
The Seahawks have been looking for an inside/out rusher for a long time. They decided to take the chance on McDowell. If he delivers on his potential he can be a monster, combining with Frank Clark to solidify the core of the D-line for the long term. Furthermore, there’s much more depth at cornerback than on the D-line. McDowell is an exciting talent but his personality and character question marks led to this fall in the first place. Seattle’s challenge is to get the best out of him consistently for 16 games. They did meet with him — so they clearly feel comfortable with his character and personality. The upside potential is huge.

There are things to work on. His pass rush repertoire is limited and he tends to play out of control at times. His gap discipline isn’t great and while he often breaks into the backfield, he struggled to register splash plays in certain games. His effort at the end of 2016 is well debated. The fact is — Pete Carroll backs his staff to get the best out of players. And McDowell has the kind of talent they love to get their hands on.

Jason La Canfora says the Seahawks would’ve taken McDowell in round one and had he not been available, they would’ve targeted Kevin King (taken by Green Bay at #33).

I didn’t think the Seahawks would take him because his personality, gap discipline and effort didn’t scream ‘Seattle’. That doesn’t mean I don’t like the pick now it’s happened. This team can coach. They’re taking a shot at greatness with this guy.

Here’s a detailed breakdown of his tape by Brett Kollmann:

#58 Ethan Pocic (OL, LSU)
The Seahawks don’t move up — and this one is a little bit surprising (to anyone who’s followed the blog anyway). Pocic wasn’t on our radar so we slipped up there. I’m not sure he was on anyone’s radar for Seattle in round two. With a number of big name players still on the board, this is an intriguing one. It’ll be good to get into some of his games over the next couple of days.

Firstly, it’ll be interesting to see where they decide to use Pocic. He played center to finish his career at LSU but he’s 6-6 and 310lbs. He’s not the longest O-liner (33 inch arms) or particularly explosive (2.81 TEF). Is he a hedge against Justin Britt being out of contract? Will he play guard or get a shot at tackle? He was reportedly well respected at LSU and praised for his leadership. This is one we missed on big time. It’ll be fun to get into his tape.

For the second year in a row Seattle goes OL-DL with their first two picks. And it’s another high pick on the O-line. Jason La Canfora says the Seahawks believe he can play all along the line including tackle.

#90 Shaq Griffin (CB, UCF)
The Seahawks met with him at the VMAC. He gave up some plays at UCF, there’s no getting away from that. However, he’s tough and physical. The Seahawks will like his attitude and he’s a better athlete than shows up on tape — running a fantastic 4.38 at the combine and a smooth 4.14 short shuttle. He could compete in the slot and at outside cornerback. One thing we learnt from this draft? The Seahawks truly are committed to the 32-inch arm benchmark.

#95 Delano Hill (S, Michigan)
Of all the Michigan players draft so far, Hill stood out on tape the least. He’s a good athlete and he has reasonable size. He also has the 32-inch arms and his wingspan is +77.5 inches too. He ran a 4.47 and had a nice 4.27 short shuttle. Hill could compete at the big nickel, special teams and safety. They needed some depth here.

#102 Nazair Jones (DT, North Carolina)
His 24.5 inch vertical was a little off-putting but he ran a 4.63 short shuttle at 6-5 and 305lbs which is pretty much in Seattle’s previous range. Jones has 35 inch arms and he’s tough. He’s not going to be much of a pass rusher but this is looking like a meat and potatoes type of draft class for Seattle. They likely see him as a younger, cheaper version of Tony McDaniel.

#106 Amara Darboh (WR, Michigan)
The two Michigan receivers were very similar in terms of value. Jehu Chesson was the big name a year ago but he didn’t have the breakout year everyone expected. Darboh instead wrestled away a lot of his targets and had a more consistent and productive season. He’ll likely push Jermaine Kearse and compete on special teams initially.

Overall thoughts on day two

This isn’t a sexy draft class filled with big names (or amazing athletes for that matter). This seems to be about toughness, attitude and physicality. Instead of reloading the LOB the Seahawks are seemingly trying to get bigger and more physical in certain areas, while creating cost-savings down the line. If Jones replaces McDaniel this year, Darboh could make Kearse expendable in a year and Pocic could even push Justin Britt into free agency if he asks for too much money.

This is a group that might not form a new core down the line but they’ll compete and contribute. In McDowell they have a potential star if he develops as intended. The rest of the class appears to be about solidity.

They’ll pick five more times tomorrow with picks in round four (x1), six (x2) and seven (x2). There are lots of big names still available including Dorian Johnson, Isaac Asiata, Samaje Perine, Chad Hansen, Bucky Hodges, Jake Butt, George Kittle, Carlos Watkins, Vince Biegel, Carl Lawson, Anthony Walker Jr and Desmond King.


  1. Nathan_12thMan

    King or Lamp please. I can accept certain other players but one of those would be nice. Oh and if King goes to GB and becomes a Packer? I’ll throw up.

    • troy

      guess you threw up

  2. Misfit74

    Obi, King
    Awuzie, Baker
    Godwin, Lamp, D. Rivers

    • Misfit74

      For the record, we didn’t draft any of these 7. 🙁

      To make it worse, Rivers went to NE.

  3. Volume12

    Here we go boys.

    Go Hawks!

  4. chet380

    lamp, if available — otherwise trade down, but stay in the 30’s.

  5. Poko

    enjoy draft!
    Go hawks!

  6. GerryG

    No more trading down. We rolled the dice twice, and it paid off (one more pick to go). It’s time to get your guys. I want them to trade back up.

    • Volume12

      That’s getting too damn cute if they do again.

      • CHawk Talker Eric

        I wouldn’t rule it out.

    • Redhawk87

      To be fair, say we trade down five spots to the Jets to get #39 and #107 so the Jets can get a QB. That’s a maximum of 4 teams that would have to pick up Obi, Lamp, and King in order for it to be a bad trade, assuming they’re all equally desired as a 1st pick this draft. That extra pick allows us more ammo to move up with #58 (or without).

      • jujus

        im a fan of this jets trade but swapping 95 to their native 3rd round position…

  7. John_s

    So many good options Can’t wait!

  8. Blueshawk

    i have a gut feeling it is none of the above. But I don’t want to mention the name in deference to the peeps who want to wait for Santa to give them the present. It is a position no one has discussed to this point.

    • Volume12


      • AlaskaHawk

        It’s about time they got a new field goal kicker.

      • Blueshawk

        uh huh

        • Blueshawk


  9. Volume12

    No TIPPING picks, please!

    • CHawk Talker Eric


      • Grant G


  10. John_s

    My worry is that the Pack pick king. But at least there’s other CB options

    • Volume12

      Yeah. Cook seems like a great fit for them too though.

  11. Volume12

    Who’s making the pick for Seattle? Big Walt? Who? Who?

    • John_s

      Kenny Easley hopefully

  12. SheHawk

    Agree getting too cute with trading back again — Please get me some UW Dawgs tonight I will cry if GB takes King — he was born to be in LOB

  13. House

    Hurry up Roger…

  14. Nathan

    Anyone know the live war room link.

  15. Misfit74

    Shock the world with Derek Rivers…. Man that’d be something. We can miss on Obi or King though. Maybe if he makes it to our 2nd 2nd

    • Volume12

      Rivers is a stud.

      PC had Bo Pelini on his staff at NE. Who’s the HC of Youngstown St.?

      • jujus

        I will take who is bo pelini for 1000000 dollars

  16. Derron James

    Ima be sick if king is a packer and we have to face him

  17. nichansen01

    The Seahawks pick Dominick Jackson OT, Florida State. Great pick.

  18. DLep

    buzz is the pack going King

  19. Dan

    Tier one: King, Obi

    Two: lamp quincy or awuzie

    • Poko


  20. Producehawk

    Pack or Sea or both may trade back a bit if yesterday was any indication of how desperate teams are for iffy QBs.

  21. Misfit74

    Perhaps the last of the #SeahawksDraftClues! “More Than a Feeling” by @JoshWest4Music on @NBCTheVoice!

    YouTube ‎@

    Maybe it’s Josh Jones?

  22. Hawksince77

    I think the first pick will be Tim Williams, but hoping for Budda Baker. Perhaps they can get them both!

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      I’m guessing Obi or King

      • Hawksince77

        As discussed in the previous thread, it all depends on how PC/JS measure Obi’s football character. If they pick Obi, I will be thrilled, because that means he passed muster. But I won’t be surprised if they don’t, because I am not sure if Obi has demonstrated enough passion for the game.

        • CHawk Talker Eric

          Only they know for sure, but I wouldn’t mistake Obi’s calm demeanor as a lack of passion.

          • Hawksince77

            I was referring to his play on the field. He just doesn’t strike me as a player who has fulfilled his physical potential.

      • Volume12

        There’s so much talent left.

        I’ve always preferred the 2nd, 3rd, and UDFA ’rounds’ to the sexier 1st round picks.

        • Volume12

          Last night was Christmas Eve for me.

          Tonight is Christmas!

          • CHawk Talker Eric

            We live for this sh!t

            • Volume12

              Yes we do my man.

  23. Volume12

    The GB war room looks thrilled.

    • Hawksince77

      Hopefully that means they got a trade

  24. Misfit74

    Shefter reporting its a defender

    • C-Dog

      My $ is that GB is going Kevin King.

  25. nichansen01

    Please don’t be king please don’t be king please don’t be king

    • Redhawk87


  26. nichansen01

    This is really going to hurt…

  27. Volume12

    The run on DBs is gonna start real soon. Maybe with this next pick from GB.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Could be. If they take King, I’ll bet SEA go with Obi.

  28. Misfit74

    I just know they’re gonna take King, which is totally fine if we take Obi.

  29. Rowlandice

    If GB makes the pick – I bet we trade back again! SOMEBODY is gonna want Cook or a QB

    • John_s

      That’s what I’m thinking too

  30. nichansen01

    I’m praying it’s not king

  31. Volume12

    They better not go to commercial when Seattle’s pick is in. If so, no one spoi it.

    GB trades it?

    • nichansen01


  32. BobbyK

    Trade down a bit (not too far down) and get an extra pick in 2018.

    • TallyHawk

      Listen to the NFL network guys talk about GB getting trade calls couldn’t help but think it wouldn’t be a surprise to see another trade down. Although I feel at some point there will be a trade up too.

  33. Volume12

    What is going on? Get on with it!

  34. Derron James

    Seattle may trade back

  35. Volume12

    Seriously though. Does anyone know who’s announcing Seattle’s pick?

    • jujus

      Avril is announcing one

  36. Magmatizer


  37. Misfit74

    King is off the board.

  38. Derron James


  39. CHawk Talker Eric

    I hate twitter

  40. troy

    Packers took King FUCK!

  41. vrtkolman

    Ughhhhh that is so deflating. I don’t mind not getting King, but going to Green Bay is killer. He’s going to be a star.

  42. Volume12

    Great pick GB.

  43. C-Dog

    King. Great pick up for the Pack.

  44. EP


  45. jujus


    • Rowlandice

      Meltdown currently under way! (sips cold beer). Meltdown averted!

  46. Rowlandice

    Arggh. Hoping we could grab him.

  47. Kyle


  48. Grant G


  49. CHawk Talker Eric

    I bet we go Obi

  50. Volume12

    Seattle traded again!

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Haha too funny. Said it could happen. Pretty short trade down, but worth #187.

  51. nichansen01


  52. BobbyK

    That kind of sucks. But we can’t get all of King, Baker, Obi, etc. But do need one.

  53. Derron James

    I think we go trade back lamp or Obi

  54. BobbyK

    Another trade. LOL. Hopefully for a pick next year.

  55. nichansen01


  56. John_s

    Trade one spot down. Jax on the clock it looks like

    • John_s

      Sea get a 6th

  57. Ed

    Hawks trade with Jax

  58. Derron James

    They traded back

  59. Producehawk


  60. Hawk Eye

    King to GB
    too bad

  61. Volume12

    We moved back one spot. For what though?

    Jags are taking Cam or Lamp huh?

    • Producehawk

      6 roinder

  62. Rowdy

    Hawks blew it

    • nichansen01

      I don’t agree. There’s plenty of options still on the board.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Not if they want Obi. JAX prob want Robinson, maybe Lamp

  63. troy

    Anyone know what we got for the trade with JAX?

    • John_s


      • troy

        Thanks, I really hope King does not turn into a pro bowl player because if he does I will never forget this trade down that JS just HAD TO DO

  64. SheHawk

    Im heart broken — we got a little too cute — should have grabbed him last night See what is up If its Cam the TV going off ( at least for a bit cuz I couldn’t really stop watching this and NOW we traded out again KILL ME NOW

  65. Misfit74

    Seattle traded down 1 spot

  66. Magmatizer

    LOL we moved down a spot.

  67. Aaron

    Packers get King…dang it!!! Great pick for the. Good luck to him. Plus Hawks trading down again. Still great options at CB despite King going to GB.

  68. C-Dog


  69. jujus


  70. Nathan

    We;ve traded again.

  71. Misfit74

    Guessing Jags go OL

  72. Grant G

    Man I wanted King. Wonder what we got in Trade value

  73. MarkinSeattle

    Damn, damn, damn……i get the impression that King was hoping to get selected by the Seahawks judging by his reaction.

    • stregatto

      he looked like it in the acceptance speech to me fwiw

  74. sdcoug

    We have too many dang huskies anyway

  75. TallyHawk

    Any chance we fleeced Jax like SF fleeced Chicago lol?

    • Volume12

      We got a 6th.

  76. Derron James

    I think we are gonna get lamp or Robinson depends on jax

  77. Volume12

    Obi, Lamp, or Robinson for Jax?

    • CHawk Talker Eric


  78. Nick

    Everyone who is freaking out: chill. We are going to get a haul.

    • MarkinSeattle

      Sure, but will they be Pro Bowlers?

      King has better talent than Sherman, he studied him and modeled his play on Sherman. He would have been perfect and a future all pro under PC barring injury. Maybe the guy we select will as well, but not nearly as much of a guarantee in my mind as selecting King. They made a mistake, big time.

      • AlaskaHawk

        Yes it’s pretty much a worthless haul, but okay you got a haul.

      • Just a guy

        This is comical

  79. Derron James

    If not we are hoping on the OBI TRAIN CHOO CHOO

    • nichansen01


  80. Misfit74

    Jags 6th

  81. BobbyK

    Could have used an extra pick in ’18.

  82. Poko


  83. Ehurd1021

    Trading down again!

    Every year… the same shit.

    • Ehurd1021


      Excuse my langue, everyone. Apologies.

  84. nichansen01

    The hawks had to know Green Bay was into king. They’re not stupid.

  85. Ed

    Everyone said the same thing when Hendrix went to Philly and then Hawks took Wagner. That worked out. Trust in JS/PC. Still plenty of talent and the Hawks keep getting more ammo.

    • Ed R

      I was in that Hendrix boat.

  86. Rowlandice

    Picked up another 6th? WHY?

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      I think they trade back up into R2, also into early R3. Could see them making 3 picks in the top 75.

  87. C-Dog

    Now 11 picks in this s draft, I smell a move up after the first pick. Go Hawks

    • Volume12


      Seattle controls the draft now.

      • Derron James

        I am so excited

  88. Volume12

    Never thought King was their guy anyways.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      We’ve been down that road a few times. Always thought Obi was the better prospect but King filled a more immediate need…

      So if they take Obi, all good.

  89. BobbyK

    Don’t have to worry about taking Cam Robinson.

    • Hawksince77

      good call

    • sdcoug

      Why are you spoiling the pick?

  90. Hawksince77

    I don’t think they were ever going to draft a CB with their top pick. If that’s true, they were never going to draft King, because that’s what it would have taken.

    • Volume12

      Agreed. Never thought it was King.

    • Misfit74

      Agreed. We would have stayed at a prior pick and taken him if he was our top CB

  91. Derron James

    I want them to get Robinson so we can get lamp or Obi

  92. Misfit74

    It was our plan all along to move down and still get Obi. Maybe Awuzie. Gotta be Obi.

  93. nichansen01

    Well know we have two seconds four thirds 1 fourth two sixths two sevenths..

    • Hawksince77

      Yeah, somebody needs to inform JS that he has to pick at some point

  94. Ed

    My bet is Lamp or Robinson to Jax. Hawks can still get Obi/McDowell/Hall/Tankersley/Lewis/Bowser etc….

    • Volume12

      I think ur right.

  95. TCal

    These guys are toying with us!

  96. TallyHawk

    Really don’t want OL. DB or Dline

  97. Rowlandice

    I smell another trade down. Maybe all the way to the Saints at 42

  98. Sea Mode

    Let’s see if they trade up with Chicago and pick twice in a row!

  99. Derron James

    We are gonna pick 3 times this round I bet

  100. Grant G

    Now I’m rooting for Awuzie, maybe Obi, or Q Wilson

  101. Magmatizer

    Having Cam Robinson off the table narrows our scope a bit.

  102. Volume12

    Great pick for the Jags. Love it.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Good pick for them.

    • Volume12

      Upside pick for them.

      Robinson & Fournette? Great haul Jags.

  103. Derron James

    Didn’t want Robinson anyway

  104. Producehawk

    Robinson off.

  105. House

    Robinson off the board! YES!!!

  106. Misfit74

    Cam, good pick for them. Powerful run blocker for Fournette.

  107. TCal

    Oh so glad we don’t have option of Carpenter 2.0

  108. troy

    Nice I’m happy Robinson is out, please get an impact player please please please

  109. Aaron

    Thank you Jax for taking Robinson so the Hawks don’t take him. Good luck with a guy that has a horrible kick step and is a RT at best.

  110. Derron James

    I’m calling forest lamp

  111. Dawgma

    Damn, damn, damn. At least there are still a bunch of good options…

  112. Derron James

    Of course when they come back SOB

  113. Producehawk

    Commercial crap!

  114. Redhawk87

    Lamp or Obi?

  115. nichansen01


  116. BobbyK

    If they do want an OL – maybe they were willing to pick up a pick for free since their grades for Robinson and Lamp were close.

  117. Nathan

    Is the war room link working for anyone else?

    I can only see ‘webcast about to start’

  118. Hawksince77

    the pick is in, so no trade at 35

  119. John_s

    Espn shows the pick is in! An actual pick!

  120. Volume12

    They ran to the podium man.

    • Derron James

      Must be someone they really like

  121. Nathan

    No trade this time, we’ve picked.

  122. troy

    Schneider hugging people

  130. Joshua Smith

    What is up with the commercials. ESPN wonders why their viewship is down. Its the reason why NFL viewership is down too. College football is even more ridiculous: 4 1/2 hour games – 2 hours of which is commercials

  131. Rowdy

    This is crap

  132. Hawksince77

    figures – commercials

  133. Derron James


    • Derron James

      But it will work out

  134. House

    With the 35th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select…

    • House

      Malik McDowell

  135. Ryan


  136. Hawksince77

    the same commercial twice!

  137. Volume12


    • Derron James

      Yes sir

  138. DLep


  139. Misfit74

    Please be Obi

  140. SheHawk

    Well At least Cam is gone happy to get extra ammo to move up and get Budda or Sydney for now i am hoping its Obi

  141. Volume12


  142. AndrewP


  143. Magmatizer

    Malik McDowell. I guess they must have done their homework on him.

  144. Volume12

    Don’t hate it.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Don’t love it.

      Don’t understand it

  147. Misfit74

    Wow. McDowell. He is a stud 3tech when playing hard.

  148. jujus

    My guy Malik, this means they believed the injury narrative.

  149. brando

    kinda surprised by the pick

  150. nichansen01



    • C-Dog

      Love this pick. Swing for the fences on the DL

  151. C-Dog

    Malik McDowell children! I had a feeling they’d go DT early. Go Hawks!!

  152. Jusjamn


  153. DLep

    I like the pick, been one of the few on the blog that was amenable to this pick when he was being discussed.

    • Ed R

      I agree. All the talent in the world, just need to coach him up.

  154. Forrest


    I mean…okay.

  155. Derron James

    We need to come back and get lamp even though I think the rams are getting him I think

  156. Volume12

    If there’s anyone who can coach him up it’s PC.

    Told ya’ll they’d take a character concern or red flag guy.

    • C-Dog

      Love this pick here. Major upside.

    • Kenny Sloth

      And someone fans would hate

  157. Producehawk

    Good pick at this point.

    • Rowdy

      Not trading back and taking king would of been way better

  158. Misfit74

    Most talented DT in draft outside of Allen/Thomas and Malik might be a better pure 3tech.long time since we had one like this.

  159. Mistral

    Gifted Geneticallly? I watched Get Out last night, not today.

  160. vrtkolman

    Wow! This definitely is a Seahawky pick. Special blend of physical and athleticism. He must have impressed them when he visited. We got our interior pass rusher!

  161. chet380

    Take a deep breath, people — there are 23 picks until our #58 — most of our faves will be taken, so resign yourselves to some disappointments.

  162. Ehurd1021

    I like the pick. D-line is a bigger concern on this team than most people believe. Can’t play solid defense if you can’t stop the run and win the LOS.

    • Rowdy

      The tape say he socks at stopping the run.

    • GerryG

      Everyone agrees with that, it’s that he gave up last season, quit. Not very Seahawky

      • Jusjamn

        Attitude problems. Sheeesh…

  163. Del tre

    Wow… now i feel like we are trending down.

  164. nichansen01



  165. Volume12

    I’m actually coming around on him man.

    His 2016 tape was bad, go check the 2015 stuff. Top 15 potential.

    • Volume12

      And I recommend the ND tape from this year.

      I think we got this years Chris Jones.

      • vrtkolman

        I made this comparison back when they had McDowell come in for a visit. His players comps are insane. Mario Williams.

  166. jujus

    The way that they were saying that no one was taking their guy I suspected it would be Malik.

  167. Misfit74

    Depth at corner and safety, zero guys like this later. Playing the whole board.

  168. Grant G

    If you’re going to go boom or bust, I guess might as well grab 3 more picks in the process…

  169. EP

    Still got another 10 picks 😀

  170. Mike

    Cards traded up..

  171. Ishmael

    Well… Man. Great call by all of you who said they liked him.

    I’m absolutely not thrilled right now, but hopefully they can get him switched on and we’ve got ourselves an inside-out wrecker. He needs coaching in a big way, but he’s incredibly young and an absolute animal at his best. Swing for the fences right?

    • jujus

      Ceiling is non existent for him – have faith in PC. He could be the best defensivelinemen in this entire draft

  172. Sea Mode

    YUGE upside. They can still move up for Obi or Chidobe.

  173. Hawk Eye

    oh, not sure if I like it or not.
    Love the potential, but not sure he has the heart
    But I am willing to trust JS and PC that they can get the most out of him

  174. BayaHawk

    I predicted Malik to the Hawks in the SDB competition but at 26. Yay, me!

  175. Poko


  176. Rowlandice

    A bit underwhelmed – prove me wrong Malik!

  177. Derron James

    I am actually good with the pick the more I think about it, I expect a trade up soon to take lamp or Obi. They may also go after Quincy Wilson or Awuzie

    • Coleslaw

      I’m hoping for any of those or Tim williams

      • Kyle

        This! Yeah, id be happy with that. If they can figure out tim Williams what a steal. we would be ferocious up front

  178. MarkinSeattle

    He could be great, or he could be mediocre. I wonder if they see him as a Bennett clone, or if they see him as a DT pass rusher.

  179. TallyHawk

    With what we have on the outside if McDowell can collapse the pocket this D will get back to being elite. Their inability to get any consistent push inside has held this D back more than anything the last couple seasons, besides injury, imo.

    • Ed R

      I agree. It will also make life easier for a rookie CB if we draft/start one.

  180. Producehawk

    Trust the process. We must not have wanted to trade back with Arizona because of the gap.

  181. Aaron

    You were right Rob! An inside-out rusher for the first round. Huge upside but I HIGHLY question his motor.

  182. nichansen01

    When you pick later in the draft, and you want a guy with a really high ceiling, he’s probably also going to have a pretty low floor. Just how it is. Love this pick. Endless potential.

    • vrtkolman

      From what I can remember, PC/JS first draft picks always go for the highest ceilings.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      That’s a pretty good way of putting. Not sure I love the pick. Depends on how the rest of the day goes. It’s not as much about McDowell as it is about other options.

      It’s a boom-or-bust pick for sure. If it pays off, we’ll have the best Dline in the League.

  183. Hawksince77

    Wow, didn’t see that coming. This will be very interesting to watch. If he works out, it will be the homer inside pass rusher that might make Seattle’s d-line really scary. If not, not so much lost, given the cost.

  184. Ed

    Avril and Bennett are getting older. Dline of Reed/Clark/McDowell. Not bad. Deep in the secondary, Hawks can still come away with 2 of (Awuzie/Baker/Lewis/Tankersley/Douglas/Jones/Luani).

    Go Hawks

  185. Ishmael

    V12 called it early that they’d take cats who made us unhappy haha. They do their own thing man, if they’re happy with his mental makeup then who am I to say they’re wrong?

    • Volume12

      Yup. The internet will hate this draft. Watch.

      • jujus

        i am the internet and i flipping love this. I have a stiffy that wont go away

      • Ishmael

        I’m trying to come around to it, I really am. Stephen White, who I really respect, only had good things to say about him over at SB Nation.

  186. Sea Mode

    They wouldn’t have taken him if the VMAC visit didn’t check out. Really like the pick. That’s how we get blue chip talent picking in R2.

  187. DLep

    Metric Analysis: Malik McDowell has a very strong data profile projecting to 3-4 defensive end. Above average market share production and near elite speed for his size. McDowell’s explosiveness score doesn’t meet the Pro Bowl threshold, but he has the same explosiveness score as the only outlier in Richard Seymour. In fact, Seymour and McDowell are almost identical athletes on paper. Thus, I’d project McDowell as a long-term starter to potential Pro Bowl caliber 3-4 defensive end.

    • Jusjamn

      If only we ran a 3-4.

      • Dlep

        He will be a michael Bennett type here

        • RWIII

          Love this pick. Michael Bennett will make sure that McDowell plays up to his full potential. Michael Bennett will kick McDowell ‘s butt if he doesn’t give 100 percent.

          Trust me: With Bennett hanging around, McDowell will be scared not to give 100%.

  188. nichansen01

    Cards take Kizer or Webb here I think

    • Producehawk

      Buddha wow.

  189. Misfit74

    Malik McDowell | DT, Michigan State
    Height: 6-6 Weight: 296
    This is another really good pick early in the round. He has top-10 talent, but there are some effort questions. Right team here.
    Grade: A

    • Misfit74


  190. Ed

    Davis or Peterman?

  191. Trevor

    Mcdowell was one of the only players I really did not want after watching his tape this year his effort was embarrassing. I have no doubt about his talent but Pete must think he can somehow give this guy heart. I have my doubts and could not be more disappointed.

    • Volume12

      Watch 2015 Trev. Its top 15 good. I wouldn’t lie to ya.

      • Trevor

        I will have to tonight Vol because I watched a ton of his tape this year after the VMAC visit.

        His tape vs Michigan almost made me want to throw up for his team mates having to play with a guy who gives up like that.

        • Nick

          Such great points from both sides. In the end, I trust our culture to shape him in a positive fashion. We, as fans, can honestly be huge to that—imagine playing in CenturyLink as a rookie who was on a shit team last year? It’s going to be a big change. Every single game as a Hawk his team is always going to be in it and he won’t have to be totally relied upon. He can just be him. Last year, from what I understand, he was really one of the few good players on that D. He won’t be that anymore. He’s going to be the runt in that DL room. Go hawks.

    • vrtkolman

      I get your reaction Trevor, but remember he did visit the VMAC. I imagine Seattle vetted his personality pretty thoroughly and had their sports psychologist on him. He is a possible All-Pro in the NFL.

      • jujus

        He was injured alot last yea taht he played through. Alot of people deemed this fake news but if it was legit and he played through it… Thats seahawky imo

      • Mexican Hawk

        Volume really does know his tape. In you I trust my friend. A bit shocked.

        But you can’t get that talent without some sort of baggage or negative attached to why he dropped. Hope this one turns into one of the success stories.

        If i remember correctly Mel Kiper had him as his possible # 1 player for this year post 2016 draft.

      • Seatown

        Terrible pick. Quitters are quitters. It’s in their DNA.

  192. Volume12

    McDowell and Frank Clark? Yes sir!

    • John_s

      Both with crazy wingspans!

    • Aaron

      Clark was a questionable pick in 2015, I think McDowell is just as questionable this year. But imagine a motivated McDowell, Clark, Bennett, and Avril…OH BABY WHAT A FRONT FOUR!!! Just hope they get McDowell motivated.

      • Seatown

        What if he’s not motivated? Bust.

  193. Derron James

    Budda baker not bad

    • Derron James

      Good pick lets trade up now Please!!!

  194. nichansen01

    Great pick for Arizona.

  195. Magmatizer

    I’m so sad now…

  196. Ehurd1021

    AND HE CAN RUSH THE PASSER FROM THE 1/3-tec on passing downs lol. Which I’ve been begging to see on Seattle D-line since 2013 lol. Stout run defender who can stop the run as well. Solid pick.

    • Rowdy

      I seen rb run past him at will on film

      • Ehurd1021

        What are you saying?

    • Jusjamn

      Not stout against the run.

      • Ehurd1021

        Completely disagree. Even when double teamed – which happened to him all of 2016 because of the lack of talent around him – he was still a difference maker and disruptive.

      • hawkdawg

        Look at Rob’s clip on him above. The guy can anchor like a freaking battleship. His pad level for a guy 6’6″ is excellent. The inside plays in those clips look like they should be made by a 330 lb 6 foot NT.

        And no such NT could EVER make those outside plays, either.

        So, it’s up to the Hawks to light the fire. Because the kindling is all there.

  197. Ed

    Arizona is getting players the blog loved. Reddick and Baker.

  198. nichansen01

    Budda Baker great pick for Arizona

  199. Poko

    we may not get King and Obi.
    I am shocked

  200. SheHawk

    OMG Card grabbed Budda — he is special been pounding table for him is honey badger v next and now he is with AZ I am totally bummed

  201. Aaron

    …Baker to the Cards…SMH!!!!! If y’all get Budda can we get the Honey Badger cuz they are the same kinda player.

  202. vrtkolman

    I thought Arizona should have taken Hooker, Baker is a nice consolation prize though.

  203. Rowlandice

    Need a miracle here. Need to get in front of CAROLINA and CINCI!

  204. Volume12

    Damn. ‘Zona is loaded in the secondary! Wow.

  205. Ishmael

    Fantastic pick for Arizona. Peterson, Mathieu, and Budda all in the same secondary, that’s going to be incredible to watch.

  206. CHawk Talker Eric

    Bummed. Really like Budda. Glad for him to go this high. Sad for us it’s to a division rival.

  207. Volume12

    Your pass rushers better come with juice man. Seattle likes these bad a** characters to get after the passer.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      If they can light his fire and get him pissed off for greatness, then we’ll have the baddest DL in the NFL.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Report says he needs to clean up his technique, but good value where he was taken imo

      And hey, you got Bennett and Avril to help him reach his ceiling

      • Ishmael

        He’s got one move at the moment. Tackles worked it out and he stopped being nearly as effective. He needs coaching in a big, big, way. If anyone can get it out of him it’s the Hawks…

  208. Nick

    Great point by Zach Whitman on Twitter: Jags didn’t need to jump ahead of Seattle to take Cam.

    • Producehawk

      Somebody else might have been in play for the slot.

    • Rowdy

      They probably had to jump ahead so someone else didnt

  209. nichansen01

    Dang it. Bills snipe Zay Jones.

    • John_s

      I like JuJu better

      • CHawk Talker Eric

        I like the potential of JuJu better. But right now Zay is the more “ready” receiver.

    • vrtkolman

      At least the Rams did not.

  210. CharlieTheUnicorn

    There goes a fan fav on the blog.. WR

  211. EP

    Been a good draft from the bills so far I think. Got 2 good players from positions that were dire needs and also picked up a first rounder next year

  212. C-Dog

    Alright, they got a physical freak to rush inside, how ’bout they make a move up for Melifonwu?

    • Sea Mode


    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Trade up around pick #45….. I smell a blood in the water

      • TCal


  213. Volume12

    Buffalo is having a very quietly, sneaky good draft. And they get 2 firsts next year.

  214. AndrewP

    I love Buddha… But is Deone/Buddha/Badger not a touch of the same thing? Can they really effectively get all three on the field at the same time without sacrificing other positions?

    • Ed

      Badger is always on the DL, so probably Deone and Budda

  215. CharlieTheUnicorn

    NFL COMPARISON Ezekiel Ansah = Malik McDowell –

    • vrtkolman

      And Mario Williams. Dude is fantastic who had a rough 2016.

  216. Sea Mode

    War room feed goes off = shtuff gets real.

  217. Nathan

    Is it just me or is there a disproportionately large number of players in the draft with initials that are the same letter twice.

    Ryan Ramschyk, Malik McDowell, Keving King, Budda Baker

    • Nathan

      Evan Engram.

      • Nathan

        Marcus Maye.

  218. Ehurd1021

    Obi won’t make it all the way to pick 30.

    I guess they saw something we didn’t lol.

  219. Volume12

    Someone go check on The guru. The guy who thinks Seattle’s scouts follow him and he can actually influence their picks.

    Is he alive still? HAHA!

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      :O He also has a major stock stake in tinfoil producing companies

    • CHawk Talker Eric


      • Volume12

        JS. The guy who hates Rob.

        • CHawk Talker Eric

          Right, strangled

    • Ishmael

      Ha, he’s having a massive cry on Twitter.

    • jujus

      he is on suicide watch.

    • Matt

      He’s not doing well, ha. I hate to laugh at mental illness, but he clearly has something wrong with him.

      • Ehurd1021

        Can I get his Twitter handle lol?

      • BayaHawk

        The guy who constantly retweets himself and talks to himself in tweets. It’s very sad to watch.

  220. Rowdy

    Malik sounds like he has no interest in playing for seattle

    • Jusjamn


      • Producehawk

        Where did you hear that?

        • nichansen01

          Link please

  221. LeoSharp

    Love the Mcdowell pick. I think his effort issues were overplayed, he also dealt with numerous injuries last season which probably effected him more than people realize.

  222. Derron James

    Great pick by the chargers

  223. Misfit74

    Sweet. Now I don’t have to worry about another slot/manufactured touches guy in Seattle. Good fit for Bills along with Watkins. They had no slot or #2 receiver.

  224. Volume12

    I gotta say guys. I’m liking this pick more and more. He just fits our D’s personality.

    Remember fellas. Tape only gets u so far in this game.

    • Derron James

      Me too.

      • Sea Mode


  225. Misfit74

    Chargers should pick Samuel, A FS not named OBI, or Lamp. Maybe Cunningham.

  226. SheHawk

    I agree with the comments that we are good with that type of player – Malek must have passed his interview and in person visit but seems like we had amazing players at UW in back yard and we’ve been overly critical of them Doubt we take Sydney or JoeJoe Mathis now its a bit of a pattern Maybe they will still grab a coug. But honestly I am really disappointed.

    OBI still out there though…… we got to get back up here and grab a DB asap

    • Volume12

      JS said it. They’re too close to Udub. They over analyze them to a fault sometimes.

  227. Derron James

    Great pick

  228. vrtkolman

    Lamp and Zay Jones out of the picture for the Rams, which is good for us.

  229. CharlieTheUnicorn

    The Superchargers now are lighting a Lamp for LA

    • Volume12

      Their offense is lit!

  230. StoveEats

    Come on, move up for Awuzie or Obi!

    I’d be a big fan of another DLiner at 58 too.

  231. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Jets grab QB here? In the Second round?

  232. Mexican Hawk

    You never let go of a player you want, but with so much trading back they might have been able to slide even further.

    Nevertheless if that is the player they targeted more power to them. Just like Bears.

  233. Darth12er

    I keep waiting for the Hawks to move up…come on Obi

    • Misfit74


    • Dave

      Me too! What the heck are we waiting for?!? I like the McDowell pick. He had nothing to play for last year. He is now on a perennial playoff team. He said the word compete in his press conference. It wasn’t the best interview, but his physical skills are off the chart. Watch 2015 tape when MSU games mattered.

  234. Volume12

    Awful pick for the Jets. So overrated.

    • Derron James

      I think it was a good pick

    • C-Dog

      I had Maye going late third round

    • Nick

      Completely disagree. They have two bad ass safeties now. Who are going to be hungry for success.

  235. Derron James

    Two safeties wow I like it!

  236. vrtkolman

    Wow, good pick Jets. Two safeties with their first two picks.

  237. drewdawg11

    We can still trade up and get Obi or wilson. Awuzea.

    • Derron James

      One is gonna be gone soon better hurry

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      I think we’re about to see a run on DBs

  238. Misfit74

    Wow, dual Safeties for the Jets. Pryor and Gilchrist rightfully to bench.

  239. CharlieTheUnicorn

    *checks off DL box*

    Looking at other needs…. CB/S come to mind…. time to check another box off around pick #45 with a trade up

  240. C-Dog

    Jets get freaky with safeties back to back

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Interesting strategy

      • Sea Mode

        I think they just want “safe”, high-character leaders to build around.

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        Build up the middle….. can’t say they are bad picks at all

      • C-Dog

        They were hemorrhaging points all year long. It makes sense, but dang. DB is so deep in this draft, why go back to back?

  241. Sea Mode

    Wonder if the comments about self-scouting their own mistakes last year referred to Chris Jones. They passed on talent at a position of need. This time, they trust their staff to keep him motivated and don’t make the same mistake twice.

  242. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Bears will trade off of 45 with someone, they need more picks in the draft

  243. Nathan

    Drew‏Verified account @DrewMacFarlane 3m3 minutes ago
    Congrats to the Jets for drafting their 22nd safety in the last 3 drafts! #NFLDraft

  244. Misfit74

    Maybe DL as usual for Panthers.

  245. Derron James

    Not liking the panthers pick too similar players

    • Derron James

      Very Eh

  246. EP

    Thinking Bears Eagles and Saints target defensive backs with their next picks

  247. Coleslaw

    So far we have to play against Solomon Thomas, Reuben Foster, Haason Reddick, Budda Baker twice a year

  248. Volume12

    McDowell ain’t even 21 yet.

    Remember when I told u guys to follow or look at Gil Brandts twitter? Please do so now.

    We all wanted Calais Campbell right? Got him! Got himl

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      *give Vol12 a beer*…. relax man, you are getting really lathered up and there are potentially 5 more picks tonight!

      • Volume12

        I’m gonna get even more excited! Watch out.

        Pants off! 😉

      • jujus

        ME an vol12 are going HAM TONIGHT WOOOHOOOO WERE GOING STREAKINGGGGGGGG~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

    • Rowdy

      Lmao Campbell? Really

      • Volume12

        Yup. Campbell upside.

  249. troy

    Hey Rob can you compare Malik with Donald and see if they are similar at all athletically?

  250. LeoSharp

    Starting to think Obi slips into the mid 2nd after all the interest by the Bucs, Lions etc.
    Clearly wasn’t a 1st round player based on tape( loads to critique, less projection) and his athleticism hasn’t pushed him up draft boards as much as expected.

  251. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Perhaps the Jets will got to a base 4-2-5 defense… 3 safety set-up.

  252. vrtkolman

    Meh, Curtis Samuel?

  253. Magmatizer

    CAR takes 2 RBs early. I guess they want to run that triple option to perfection.

  254. Misfit74

    Samuel and McCaffrey. Didn’t see that coming. Two RB/Slot receivers makes no sense.

    • C-Dog

      I actually dig it. Playmakers. They want to get creative

      • RealRhino2

        Very good pick, IMO. Gives them a lot of options for an offense that has been pretty creative with its running game. The more they can let Cam get rid of the ball quickly, the better.

  255. Sea Mode

    Wow, McCaffrey + Samuel.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Like NYJ but with OW instead of Safety

  256. Volume12

    Great pick for Carolina.

    They needed a guy like him.

    They go get 2 OW swiss army knives to go with that wishbone esque offense. Dayum.

  257. C-Dog

    I gotta say, I really like what the Panthers are doing with McCaffery and Samuel. Holy moly.

  258. Derron James

    Great pick Vikings

    • CharlieTheUnicorn


    • Derron James


  259. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Wasn’t McDowell playing out of position at 1T/NT last year ?

    That is what they are saying on local radio right now, but might fir better at 3T

    • Volume12

      He’s a Bennett type with Calais Campbell upside.

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        Ansah was comparison on

        • Volume12

          I can see that, but McDowell can rush from the inside.

    • Dave

      Played out of position for his team. He had to try to stop the run. He can anchor, but he’s a better pass rusher who can play the run.

  260. BobbyK

    This pick help ensures we never see Marsh on the field on 3rd and long. We’ve got good pass rush depth now. Avril, Bennett, McDowell, Clark, and Jefferson is a wild card up the gut. With good run stuffers like Reed and Rubin, and I really like our DL overall. I’m happy with it.

  261. nichansen01

    What’s the deal with Jared Stranger?

    • jujus

      arrogant Snowflake who blocks anyone who disagrees. can be insightful but has a god complex

      • jujus

        Also has a beef with Rob so we dont use his name. he gets the “hewhoshallnotbenamed” voldemort treatment

      • Ed R

        He blocked me for disagreeing with him, only person to ever block me. I was completely respectful, but he was saying some insane stuff, he thinking whatever he says is gospel.

    • Volume12

      Piece of s**t.

      Is he pooping on this pick?

      • John_s

        He’s flipping his sh@t right now.

        He hates the pick.

        • Rob Staton

          I suddenly love the pick!

            Haha, if Jared hates it I love it more.

    • Ed

      Who is he?

    • Casey Ray Zachary

      Jared does have insight but seems to lack maturity. He seems to be desperate to break into a front office somewhere but going to be hard coming off as a petulant child. He really likes to RT something from a month or year ago that he tweeted, which makes it seem he knew what the Seahawks were going to do months in advance, but the more I follow him the more it seems he just spits out ever possible scenario so he can RT it months from now to look brilliant.

  262. John_s

    LOB gets all the shine but the DLine is what made the defense special in ’13

    Still lots of DB prospects out there not as many DL’s

    Like the pick

    • RealRhino2

      IMO, there were basically four interior pass rushers in this entire draft: S. Thomas, J. Allen, and M. McDowell. That’s it. Period. Everybody else was a “could offer a little bit of pass rush from the inside if he develops” kind of guy.

      So we got one of them. Premium skill, 2nd round.

      • Kendo

        Who do you have as the fourth interior pass rusher in this draft?

  263. vrtkolman

    Vikings get their AP replacement.

  264. Coleslaw

    Latavius and Cook? Great pick to replace the best runner of all time

  265. Ed

    Saints going Bowser or Obi

  266. Misfit74

    Fusue Vue:
    “My comparison for Zay Jones is a poor man’s Robert Woods”
    “The Bills replace Robert Woods with Robert Woods”

    Haha, my sentiments exactly.

  267. CharlieTheUnicorn

    I’m not liking the Panthers draft so far… over drafting guys

    • Ed

      Agreed. Who cares if you get a few more weapons, CN has not time to throw and when he does, it’s wide right

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        I thought the defense was more the problem than offense. They took a step back last year.

  268. SheHawk

    OK warming up to McDowell — when is JS gonna make his move back up??

  269. Volume12

    Did me an jujus just become best friends? YUP!

    • jujus


      • Volume12

        For so many activities?

  270. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Bears at 45 will trade with Seahawks : Bold Prediction

  271. Derron James

    Nice pick for the saints

  272. Volume12


    Love that pick for the Saints.

    • Rowdy


    • Derron James

      I know Marcus Williams uncle

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Having a solid draft

      • Derron James

        His name is Mike Williams he told me because I’m known him for a long time at Ralph’s and he told me when the combine was going on when I saw him…

        • Volume12

          That’s awesome bro.

  273. Derron James

    Joe mixon I bet

  274. Misfit74

    Saints take another Safety I really like, but it wasn’t Obi.

    Eagles should take Mixon.

  275. Nathan

    The run on Safeties has begun, we need to go up and get Obi if we want him.

  276. Mike

    if Sherm gets will be right in here

    • jujus

      bro r u a time traveler living in thursday? its over he is a hawk

      • Nathan


      • Mike

        I’m counting down the days..

  277. vrtkolman

    Why hasn’t Awuzie been drafted yet? It doesn’t make sense.

    • Dlep


  278. Volume12

    Philly going Kamara?

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Mixon was linked to them previously

  279. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Chiefs at 59 might also be a trade up target for Seattle

  280. Derron James

    I bet Obi or awuzie is gonna go idk why

  281. Jusjamn

    I hope we stick at 58. I figure they still wouldn’t get Obi if they traded up.

  282. Volume12

    I love what the Panthers are doing. Horizontal offense in a pistol offense? They’re gonna be dangerous. Samuel and Run CMC will allow Newton to get the balk out quickly.

    • vrtkolman

      Their defense is still great too. They always go good year/bad year. I could see them winning the South this year.

    • Ishmael

      I’d love to see those two in a wishbone. Even start running some pistol with Newton and McCaffrey. Going to be fun to watch.

  283. Derron James

    Sidney jones?

    • Derron James

      Wow they did I really love that pick

  284. jujus

    I still want a defensive end early… Lewis might last till 90…

    • Derron James

      We already got McDowell

  285. CharlieTheUnicorn



  286. Nathan

    Awesome crowd tonight.

    • jujus

      only antiFA boos the military

    • CLB

      Great call, Nathan!

      • CLB

        On Sidney Jones to the Eagles.

  287. Volume12

    Here comes Sidney Jones? Maybe?

    • Coleslaw

      *bows down *

    • CLB

      Sorry – meant to say Volume12 – on the great early call of Sidney Jones to the Eagles.

  288. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Live feed Philli


  289. BobbyK

    Cunningham still available. Great “young LB depth.” If they like/love the DBs available, they could wait for the third and rebuild that defense at all levels. Remember, 7th oldest defense in the NFL last year. One of the youngest offenses. Will be again this year, too.

    • jujus

      Bowser > cunningham imo

      • BobbyK

        I don’t think Bowser will make it to our pick. Cunningham might.

      • Ishmael

        Word. I’m really not a fan of Cunningham, does very little for me as a player.

    • vrtkolman

      That is a massive steal if Cunningham lasts to 58.

  290. Derron James

    We need a trade up cmon

  291. nichansen01

    Sidney Jones it is

  292. troy

    Wow jones went way earlier than i thought

  293. Misfit74

    Nice. Too small for us and yet another team’s CB need filled

  294. CharlieTheUnicorn

    14 picks to go

  295. Nathan

    Looks like the bengals still get Mixon.

  296. John_s

    Seahawks need a cool fight song like the Eagles

    • nichansen01


      Is a bit lacking in the creativity department

  297. Producehawk

    Still three left on Rob’s first tear.

  298. Derron James

    I think rams go dan feeney or a DB

  299. vrtkolman

    Could you imagine if we land Carlos Watkins or Dalvin Tomlinson as well? This would be the best, deepest D line in football.

  300. Ishmael

    Can we put together a package to go up and get Obi?

    Happy for Jones that he went that early, was never in play for the Seahawks.

  301. jujus

    A run on pass rush is coming…

  302. Derron James

    If they take Obi it is war

  303. Producehawk

    Stinky Rams. My brothers fav team.

  304. Volume12

    I like that pick for Philly.

  305. Derron James

    Okay I have to spoil this one the rams took Gerald Everett not sure why but they did…

    • Derron James

      Don’t like the pick

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Is he related to Jim Everett by any chance?

    • nichansen01

      Not Very good pick

  306. EP

    Two 3rds and a 6th to move up? Don’t know who with but still gives us 3 more picks today and plenty tomorrow

  307. Misfit74

    Godwin, C. Henderson
    D. Rivers, Bowser, T. Williams
    Moton, Asiata, Siragusa
    B. Allen

    Some Seahawks fav remaining

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Obi and Witherspoon are the biggies for me on this list

      Bowser also someone to keep tabs on

  308. sdcoug

    PLEASE DON’T TIP THE PICKS! spoiling it for others sucks big time

  309. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Rams doing Ram things

  310. vrtkolman

    Rams just blew it. What.

  311. nichansen01

    Silly pick for the rams – Gerald Everett

  312. Derron James

    I can’t believe Obi and Awuzie is still here

  313. Volume12

    Awful pick for LA. Eww.

    I like him, but 2nd round?

    • Ishmael

      Kinda like Devin Funchess right? Poor man’s David Njoku? Surely he could have been had in the third?

  314. Aaron


  315. Misfit74

    Everett will never catch a pass against us. Tiny, Ken-doll hands.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn


  316. Ishmael

    Everett? Really? Like… I guess?

  317. Derron James

    No trade wow

  318. BobbyK

    Too many good players left to feel like we “have” to move up. Bowser, Cunningham, Awuzie, Obi, etc. Why give away a good pick when we could easily get one of those guys (regardless of a specific one).

  319. Derron James

    Damn bears

    • Volume12

      Someone the blog liked?

      • Derron James


  320. Volume12

    Guys. I’m missing 3 picks.

    Who was 39, 40, and 41?

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      maye, samuel and cook

    • Brayden

      39. Marcus maye Jets
      40. Curtis Samuel panthers
      41. Dalvin cook Vikings

      • Volume12

        Thanks guys.

  321. Derron James

    Colts makin moves man 😶

    • jujus

      a gm with a brain they must have now…

  322. Mike

    Rams must have been convinced Everett wasn’t going to be for them in the the took him in the 2nd..

    • vrtkolman


  323. coach

    I’m saying Quincy Wilson or Witherspoon at cb at 58. Then Jordan Lewis slot cb at 90. I would like that – you get a lot better on defense! Long, fast corner to start outside, one of the best slot corners, and one of the best interior pass rushers in the draft – I like it!

    After that, go Asiata to compete for playing time and give depth at G.


    Go Hawks!!

    • Derron James


    • Volume12

      I think u might be spot on.

      • Derron James

        He still might be

  324. Derron James

    Ravens too

  325. Misfit74

    Looks like one of my sleepers is gone

  326. nichansen01

    Adam shaheen for chicago

    • RealRhino2

      Afraid their first day wasn’t enough to make them a lock for worst 2017 draft, so….

  327. CharlieTheUnicorn


    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      on the bright side, can;t draft everyone you like LOL

      • Derron James


  328. Volume12

    WTF!? These are the 2 TEs that go round 2?

  329. Misfit74

    Shaheen. >> Everett “Ken doll hands”

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      This might be worth putting on a sign for when the Rams come to town

  330. Nathan

    Geez they’re falling well behind with this tv stuff now.

    Bengals on clock, won’t give awya who’s gone, but one out watch list went to the ravens.

    • John_s

      I miss the days where the draft was sat n sun and rds 1-3 were all together.

    • Volume12

      Probably Obi.

  331. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Bears have officially.. shit the bed this draft

  332. Mike

    6’6″ 278 TE..jeezus

  333. LeoSharp

    Love Shaheen he has Gronk potential. Awesome blocker and natural hands.

  334. Derron James

    Bengals doing great too

  335. Trevor

    Still lots of great options at 58

    Daeshon Hall
    Tyus Bowser
    Akhello Witerspoon

    • Derron James

      No morenquincy noo

  336. nichansen01


    • Nathan

      Who got spoiled, the only names I’ve seen have already been on TV.

  337. Producehawk

    This round is taking longer than yesterday.

  338. Volume12

    Great pick by Indy.

    Hooker and Q? They rebuilt that secondary.

  339. troy

    I know their is options still on but dissapointed that they have not traded up, they have 4 3rd round picks and the players at the 4th are NOT gonna be the same quality as the top 50…please JS

    • troy

      their = there, 4th = 3rd

  340. Misfit74

    Quincy to Colts. Him and Hooker. Good for them

  341. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Colts filling needs…… might make playoffs if they keep this up.

  342. nate dogg

    i really like the pick. He said he’s motivated about the questions of his motor. He’ll crush in SEA. I’m calling 7 sacks for the guy. We’re good on the DL for years. Nice mix of young and old. Our DB is only as good as the pass rush allows. Too many times, we saw a passer with too much time. I think we trade up about 7-10 spots now to get Awuzie, Bouser or Obi. Not rebuilding, just reloading.

  343. Derron James

    They need to speed up the process lol

  344. Derron James

    Tyus bowser

  345. Volume12

    Love the pick by B-more too.

  346. nichansen01

    Ravens having an excellent draft

    • BobbyK

      Imagine that. Ravens with a great pick.

  347. Misfit74

    Damn you, NFL Draft: I WANT OBI NOW RIGHT NOW

    Bowser to Ravens. Good pick

  348. Derron James

    feeling good now that Obi will make it too us

    • Ed

      Did you jinx Hawks?

  349. Derron James

    Redskins didn’t make a pick I like

  350. Misfit74

    Bengal maybe a DE or OL

  351. Nathan

    Bucs on the clock, have a bad feeling we lose another one here.

    • jujus

      buc lost bradley mcdougald so obi might fall here…

  352. Ishmael

    Fantastic draft for the Colts. Such a shame they’ve already wasted so much of Luck’s career.

    • Mike

      we see them in week 4 I believe…

      • Ishmael

        Going to be an exciting game. Hooker and Wilson is a HUGE boost to that secondary.

  353. BobbyK

    Cunningham, Obi, Awuzie… all still available. Don’t need to trade up until only one of those guys are available.

  354. Volume12


    Perfect fit though.

  355. Derron James

    I’m praying Tampa doesn’t take a DB even though I’m so sure they will

  356. nichansen01

    Joe mixon is a bengal

  357. Nathan

    Felt bad for Munoz having to announce that pick.

  358. RealRhino2

    FWIW, I don’t like Ramczyk, but love what Saints have done in their DB corps with Lattimore and Marcus Williams. MW probably 2nd-best pure “centerfielder” safety in the draft.

  359. nichansen01

    Buccs take Obi

    • Derron James

      I hope u didn’t spoil it and I hope ur wrong I think they would take chidobe tho

      • Nathan

        He didn’t, I’ve seen the pick and it’s not him.

        • BobbyK

          Not Obi?

          • Nathan

            No, Obi, is still on the board.

    • BobbyK

      Really? I’m two picks behind then?

      • Nathan

        Yeah, Broncos on clock now.

    • nichansen01

      that was just a prediction

      • Nathan

        right position, wrong player.

  360. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Shocker……. Bengals take guy with character problems

    • BobbyK

      No doubt.

  361. SheHawk

    Where are our hawks moving up to grab our SBD guys? Bowser is gone….. but the force is strong and we will get our man — OBI maybe Chidobe we still have good guys but am shocked we havent made our move back up yet

  362. Derron James

    I think we need to trade up soon with Detroit Tampa bay miami and Oakland waiting there

  363. Aaron

    Bengals are one of those cultures that would take a chance on Mixon. Great talent if he can be smart off the field.

  364. Ishmael

    Classic Bengals. Trash organisation. They’re welcome to it.

  365. Misfit74

    Great pick, Bengals. L. Bell 2.0 in same division. Best RB in draft.

  366. coach

    Who do you like better at 58:

    Obi, Awuzi, or Witherspoon and why?

    Go Hawks!

    • BobbyK

      I think I like Cunningham.

    • Grant G

      Awuzi, for me. I want a guy ready to come in and start Day 1 on the other side of Sherm

    • Ishmael

      Obi or Awuzi. PC can work with ‘less’ talented guys out on the boundary. Can find someone later, put them into the production line. They’ve never felt the need to have a great corner opposite Sherman before.

  367. Volume12

    Is Washington working a trade here?

  368. Ehurd1021

    Rooting for Mixon.

    Hope he continues to do all the right things and has much success.

  369. Volume12

    Witherspoon, Obi, Awuzie, Moreau still out there. Richmond’s David Jones too.

    Asiata, Moton.

  370. Aaron

    Hawks gonna trade up or no???

    • Nathan

      Falling nicely for us at this point.

      The only danger is someone jumps ahead of us and gets our guy.

  371. vrtkolman

    Ryan Anderson seems like a reach.

  372. Volume12

    This draft for Washington screams Scot McCloughan.

    • Sea Mode

      All Alabama draft?

    • Trevor

      I was just going to post that Vol.

      They fired him but used his board for sure.

      • Volume12


  373. Trevor

    Bengals with Ross and Mixon

    Indy with Hooker and Wilson

    SF with Thomas and Foster

    These 3 teams are killing the 2017 draft so far!

    • Hogmauly

      And the Browns with Myles, Peppers, and Njoku. Not to mention picking up an extra 1st next year.

  374. nichansen01

    Woah woah… Obi is plummeting…

    • peter

      not a “big” hitter, not a cover corner. Awesome athlete but many probably view him as a tweener of sorts. Still think he makes a metric ton of sense in Seattle.

      • Misfit74


        “metric ton of sense for Seattle”

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      There’s a lot of talent still on the board.

      • BobbyK

        Yep. That’s why we don’t have to trade up. Keep all those picks.

    • BobbyK

      Maybe he doesn’t “love” football? Something isn’t right. He’s a good tackler. Great size. McDowell doesn’t seem to love football either though.

  375. Derron James

    Broncos took a guy I like and also good pick for Tampa

  376. vrtkolman

    This is making me re-think Obi.. if he’s falling behind guys like Justin Evans I’m questioning why.

    • Matt

      Instincts. That was my issue with him. Just looked really unnatural reading/reacting.

    • peter

      dont lose faith. Evans is a natural looing safety. Russell wilson fell behind RGIII and that worked out.

    • Ishmael

      He’s a different cat. And teams don’t know what to do with him as a player.

      • CHawk Talker Eric


  377. SheHawk

    FWIT – female point of view – Joe Mixon non starter to start but not surprised Bengal grabbed him given their culture. However I feel same thing applies to the CB from Michigan – Lewis — There is no such thing a ” a little choking” often choking used to control and terrorize someone -since it can be done in a way that doesn’t leave marks …. So given I have come out opposing him — likely we pick him but FYI Seattle as a city doesn’t tolerate that kind of bad behavior

    PS – NFL HUGE hypocrites when it comes to their policies on domestic violence — they are so inconsistent and running their little ads. Women are the fastest growing audience for NFL but their stance is just a complete sham… Seahawks luckily set a higher standard

    • peter

      agree BTW

    • Ishmael

      The Seahawks lead the pack when it comes to hypocrisy, it’s disgraceful quite frankly.

      • Joshua Smith

        What?! How? Why are you even a fan if you believe that?

      • Just a guy


    • Joshua Smith

      I like how you pretend like domestic violence is a gendered issue.

  378. Volume12

    TB gets their roadrunner.

    Good for them. I was torn on him though.

    • Sea Mode

      Would have loved to see what he could become with a couple years under PC’s wing though.

  379. troy

    TB takes the hard hitting Justin Evans

  380. Derron James

    Please chill Cleveland Detroit Oakland and Houston

  381. Misfit74

    Dodged a bullet when TB took Justin Evans instead of Obi. /whew

  382. Nathan

    Browns on clock now.

  383. Ishmael

    Evans is overrated IMO, not worried about him.

  384. Joshua Smith

    Trey Wingo is insufferable

    • jujus

      i like him but im not hearing him.

  385. Nathan

    This is who picks before us:

    52. Browns Via Titans
    53. Lions
    54. Dolphins
    55. Giants
    56. Raiders
    57. Texans
    58. Seahawks

    • BobbyK


    • Grant G

      Small trade up anywhere? I worry about DB depth

    • Misfit74

      Most worried about Detroit. And Oak. And Texans.

  386. Derron James

    I think Obi or Awuzie is gonna happen though

    • Derron James

      To the hawks that is

  387. jujus

    Really like the fit for the broncos fit

  388. Mike

    we need a run on kickers right here..

  389. LeoSharp

    Obi’s 4 years in college is really working against him.

    • BobbyK

      Didn’t for King.

      • LeoSharp

        King only played 2 years at CB, the rest at safety. CB’s are generally more valuable players, picked higher higher and paid more.

    • Volume12

      No. He was never a lock for the 1st round. Was always an early 2nd. That was his ceiling I mean.

  390. Nick

    Do they go Tim Williams? Double down on first round talents on the DL?

    • BobbyK

      I love defensive line depth. No problem with a pass rusher at all.

  391. Misfit74

    If we get Obi (or to a lesser degree, Awuzie) along with McDowell this draft is a success.

    • Coleslaw

      Definitely, we could possibly get Tim Williams and Asiata too

    • peter

      agreed. I’ve got a slight prefernce but I’d love either.

      And thus the pick will be Cunningham!

      • Volume12

        I’d take Cunningham here for Seattle. Runs like a deer.

        Didn’t like him as a 1st.

  392. Volume12

    Could Antonio Garcia be a dark horse candidate for the Seahawks? Or does he go here to Denver?

    They need a DT. Wormley?

  393. nichansen01

    Please no Antonio Garcia

  394. Eburgz

    OBI/Awuzie or bust for me too guys

  395. nichansen01

    I want CARLOS WATKINS at 58… or OBI

    • Derron James

      We already got our rusher

  396. jujus

    I actually really like the browns draft so far this last pick could work who knows.

    • peter

      The browns if you’re scoring at home are really turning that organization around. It’s slow going but it’s going.

    • Nathan

      If it works out they’re winning the division in a couple of years.

    • Misfit74

      Garrett, Njoku, Peppers, Kizer and a ton of added picks. They’re doing it right.

      • peter


  397. Derron James

    Wow Cleveland finally did what they were supposed to do hint hint

    • CharlieTheUnicorn


      • Derron James


  398. nichansen01

    Demarcus Walker is off the board

  399. Misfit74

    Walker, FSU, to DEN. Sweet.

  400. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Broncs reloading the DL

  401. Ishmael

    Far out. Another great pick for the Donkeys. They’re having a fantastic draft.

  402. Coleslaw

    Damn, a little sad, but we got McDowell So no love lost

      He don’t fit a one gapping 4-3.

  403. Eburgz

    Demarcus Walker off the board. guess he would have been redundant with McDowell.

  404. Volume12

    That’s a great fit for Denver.

    Walker is much more suited for a 3-4.

  405. Derron James

    I have a prediction that Seattle may try to trade back into the bottom of the second round again

  406. Misfit74

    Trade up for Obi now, please.


    5 picks until ours.

  407. Derron James

    Yes I think we are good I have to say that the lions took one of the most overrated players IMO

  408. Nathan

    Lions pick is in, Dolphins on clock.

  409. vrtkolman

    Poor Cleveland.

  410. Aaron

    Browns take Kizer…lol!!! Browns still being Browns

  411. Misfit74

    Lions didn’t blow it for us.

  412. Derron James

    I’m feeling so happy rn idk how people aren’t going after Awuzie or Obi

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Their names are coming soon

    • peter

      a lot of teams still think a 3-4 is the best defensive front and don’t know what the heck a nickel corner is? jk

    • Volume12

      Don’t tip.

  413. Del tre

    Browns are having an awesome draft!!

  414. Misfit74

    C’mon Dolphins. You need a LB, take Cunningham.

  415. Ed

    Detroit might stay home and go Wormley or Lewis

  416. Derron James

    I think if Obi and Awuzie is there we take Obi and try to come back and get chidobe before the cowboys possibly

  417. Derron James

    Good dolphins are chillin too

  418. C-Dog

    Garrett, Peppers, Njoku, Kizer. Love what the Browns are doing.

    • peter

      plus the extra picks? pretty nice weekend they are having

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      I think, despite their best efforts, they are having a solid draft for the first time in… 10 years+

    • Volume12

      Yeah. He’s good value here. Can sit and learn.

  419. Ishmael

    Kizer does have serious talent, fantastic specimen. Hu Jackson is a top notch coach, way better than that absolute creep Brian Kelly.

    • peter

      that dude is the creepiest

      • Volume12

        Can’t stand him either. Weird-o.

      • Ishmael

        He’s everything that’s wrong with college football.

        • Volume12

          Well said. He really is.

    • C-Dog

      Massive creep

  420. Nathan

    Dolphins have picked, raiders up.

    • Ed

      Raiders trade with Giants, probably corner

    • Derron James

      LETS GOO I have a great feeling but I think the raiders will take Awuzie or Obi though I just know it

    • Derron James

      😶 so scared

    • Nathan

      Sorry no, giants still to go.

  421. Derron James

    We are definitely getting one of the two IMO so smart that they didn’t trade up yet

    • peter

      Honestly I hope both.

  422. drewdawg11

    Please let’s get Obi

  423. vrtkolman

    Land a DB and then trade up for Tim Williams.

  424. Misfit74

    Giants should take a LB…massive need

  425. Ishmael

    What are people seeing in Cunningham? He’s soft. Needs to be kept super clean, like a really cut price KJ Wright.

    • peter

      He was 90 percent of Vandy’s d. I agree with you but 16 tfl? not bad

    • Volume12

      Runs like a deer. Competitive.

      He has to go to a team that will keep him clean.

      • peter

        true about keeping him clean.

      • Ishmael

        Yeah that’s what I’m saying. I think he needs to go to a very specific team. The Rams maybe, the Dolphins, the Jets. Honestly, the Hawks would probably be an okay fit. He’s just not my kind of player.

  426. Derron James

    Raiders are prob going after chidobe

  427. Misfit74

    Raiders need a MLB badly…maybe that’s what they do. Cunningham or Raekwon

    • Derron James

      Cunningham if they take one

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Cunningham and Williams perhaps

  428. Derron James

    Dang a guy I liked went to the giants but we are still good!

  429. John_s

    Cody Kessler > Deshone Kizer

    Out of the top QB’s I had Kizer at the bottom

  430. Derron James


  431. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Raiders on the clock according to radio, but is 3 picks behind 🙁

    • jujus

      raiders are not making nice with seahawks fans…

  432. Nathan

    Giants have picked.

  433. Volume12

    Don’t like that pick for Detroit, but they did get Jarrad Davis. He’ll be comfortable there.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Yeah I don’t get that

  434. Volume12

    No one tip our pick.

  435. C-Dog

    Obi, Awuzie, Asiata, Cunningham, Jourdan Lewis. Some players sitting there

  436. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Chiefs are a prime trade up target for Seattle….. and their 3rd round picks

    • Derron James

      I agree

  437. Volume12

    Good fit for Miami. I liked him.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      maybe 3rd round, not second round

  438. Derron James

    I think McMillan isn’t bad but eh

  439. SheHawk

    I bet no one willing to let us trade up Otherwise we would have — Other teams probably have a few players they really like in round 2 and luckily for us — they are spreading things arounds ….so we still have SBD guys out there — my bet is JS is trying to go up and price too high

    • Derron James

      Could be right but knowing them I don’t think so.

  440. C-Dog

    McMillian over Cunningham, interesting

  441. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Seattle trades down! (j/k)

  442. Ishmael

    “Raekwon Da Chef!” – Me and literally everyone else watching

    • TCal

      lol that’s what I said on my couch!

    • Volume12

      Wu Tang clan ain’t nuthin’ to f**k wit!

      • Volume12

        I miss dudes.

  443. Volume12

    One of my favorite players in the entire draft goes to NY.

    This years Jarran Reed.

    • C-Dog

      Yup. I really like that pick for them.

    • Ishmael

      Just another stud Alabama lineman. Really good player.

  444. C-Dog

    Tomlinson is a great pickup for the Giants

  445. Derron James

    Please don’t make me mad raiders I beg u

    • Derron James


  446. Ed

    Anyone figure out how the PC clues led to MM?

    • nichansen01

      I sure haven’t

    • BobbyK

      He is as tall as a mountain.

  447. nichansen01

    Raiders about to screw the Seahawks over I think

    • peter

      there’s literally no way….!

  448. BobbyK

    I would imagine the Texans will try to trade down. After all, they don’t have picks in the first two rounds next year. Gotta try to do something to get a pick for ’18, right? Or does their GM and coach go “all in” for now because they know for a fact they won’t be around to not have picks next year if they lose this year?

  449. Nathan

    Someone just got snatched from us.

    It’s gonna be a disappointment.

    • BobbyK


      • Nathan

        Check Aaron wilson on twitter, I won’t ruin it for everyone yet.

    • Volume12

      I know that Houston loved Obi.

  450. nichansen01

    Let’s take Tim Williams…

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Word is NOS want to trade up for an EDGE.

  451. glassmonkey


  452. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Dalvin is a bad looking dude

  453. Ed

    Raiders need DL/LB. Cunningham/Willis

  454. Isaac

    I think that video helped me climb back off the ledge. That was really interesting and helps me understand why the hawks wanted him.

  455. CharlieTheUnicorn

    F U Raiders

    • BobbyK


    • Derron James

      Damn it duck the raiders

  456. Jesse James

    Oakland swoops Obi to pair with Karl Joseph, damnnnnn we were so close

    • peter

      That’s the thing about waiting….

  457. Producehawk

    William brown stalling lol

  458. nichansen01




  459. CharlieTheUnicorn

    F U Texans

    • BobbyK

      Who’d they take?

      • Dan

        Cunningham. I liked him too

  460. BobbyK

    Yeah. That sucks.

  461. Misfit74


  462. Volume12

    Love the pick Oakland.

    Him and Karl Joseph? Wow!

  463. nichansen01


  464. vrtkolman

    I don’t think Obi was in play after visiting 4 times. Seattle would have taken him with their first pick otherwise. The fact that he fell so far is worrying. Awuzie please!

  465. Ishmael

    Oh FFS. Just had to trade up a slice. Ah well, Awuzie?

  466. Darth12er

    Nooooo I’m gonna cry

  467. Derron James

    Why raiders

  468. C-Dog

    Dang, I think that hurts more than Bolles to Denver. Good for the Raiders.

  469. Misfit74

    If Seattle liked him as much as we do, we wouldn’t have waited. Guessing they have someone else in mind.

    • Grant G

      I think that’s fair. They had every chance to go get him. I think they move around next round, too

  470. nichansen01




    • Rowdy

      Story of are draft so far

      • GerryG

        I hate this draft so far

        • Grant G

          We have 1 player. Slow. Your. Roll!

  471. Ed

    Awuzie and Jones would be a dream.

  472. peter

    Folks if it’s Awuzie it’s gonna get real nice…Tim Williams maybe?

  473. Aaron

    I was high on Obi until I really thought about it hard. Awesome athlete but does he have that dawg mentality? I don’t think so and that’s why the Hawks don’t need him. McDowell has that dawg mentality, and I sure hope our next pick does too.

    • Rowdy

      Is that dog mentality quiting in a fight ?

    • GerryG

      Lazy dog

    • Ishmael

      What? McDowell rolled over on his back as soon as things got tough.

  474. nichansen01


  475. C-Dog

    My bet is that Seattle moves down.

    • C-Dog

      My bad. Pick is in.
