Live NFL Draft 2016 โ€” Rounds 2-3 open thread

Kenny and I will do a review at the end of round three. In the meantime, here’s an open thread…

The Seahawks traded up from #56 to #49 (Chicago) to select Jarran Reed. The move cost a fourth round pick (#124).

A lot of D-liners left the board early in round two — yet surprisingly Jarran Reed lasted. We mocked him at #16 to Detroit before the draft and yet the Lions passed on him even in round two.

It’s unclear why he dropped so far — is it because he’s considered a two-down player? He and Andrew Billings (who also fell) were labelled as such. That’s not an issue though. He was immovable at times for Alabama — absorbing double teams and holding position.

His performance in the Senior Bowl game was superb — he was arguably the MVP. Watch the fourth quarter on Youtube and you’ll see why. His motor never stopped.

This is likely a direct replacement for Brandon Mebane but he can also line up at DE too. The Seahawks appear to be focusing on size and intensity.

If you want a reason to like him — check this out (taken long before the draft):

C.J. Prosise (RB, Notre Dame) was the pick at #90. He matches Seattle’s trends on running back athleticism/frame. Tough, agile. Just getting started at RB after a position change. He had a nice 2015 season.

Perhaps more importantly — he’ll be a solid special teamer immediately and a third down option.

Nick Vannett (TE, Ohio State) is 6-6 and 257lbs. Urban Meyer described him as an “efficient route runner” and a “move tight end” on the NFL Network. This is a nice hedge with Jimmy Graham recovering from injury.

Tony Pauline called the Rees Odhiambo (G, Boise State) interest weeks ago. He’s coming off an injury and that arguably impacted his workout numbers. However — Odhiambo is a bit of a surprise this early. He was way off on TEF and McGovern, Dahl and Haeg were all available. Plus he has struggled to stay healthy — he hasn’t played a full season of football.

This is a commitment though to establishing an edge.

Seattle’s draft so far:

R1 — Germain Ifedi (T, Texas A&M)
R2 — Jarron Reed (DT, Alabama)
R3 — C.J. Prosise (RB, Notre Dame)
R3 — Nick Vennett (TE, Ohio State)
R3 — Rees Odhiambo (G, Boise State)

    Waiting for the trade-down

  2. Volume12

    Thinking a trade up is a legit possibility.

    These 2 rounds are loaded with talent man!

    Instant impact defenders everywhere tonight.

    • Trail Hawk

      New clue is out.

    • Rob Staton

      Agreed.. could be a trade today.

      • Trail Hawk

        Rob, do you see any QBs coming off the board before 56?

  3. Trail Hawk

    You’d think we’d have to to land Billings… He fits clue 2.

    • Trail Hawk

      trade up that is

    • seaspunj

      I think clue 2 is Joshua BULLard just my guess

      • Trail Hawk

        Either one at 56 would be awsome.

  4. Michael M.

    Now the real fun starts!!

      ZZ Top are from Houston. Who on the board is from Houston?

    • Trail Hawk

      lyrics:

      Rumour spreadin’ a-’round in that Texas town
      ’bout that shack outside La Grange
      and you know what I’m talkin’ about.
      Just let me know if you wanna go
      to that home out on the range.
      They gotta lotta nice girls.

      Have mercy.
      A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
      A haw, haw, haw.

      Well, I hear it’s fine if you got the time
      and the ten to get yourself in.
      A hmm, hmm.
      And I hear it’s tight most ev’ry night,
      but now I might be mistaken.
      hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

      Have mercy.

      • sdcoug

        Shaq Lawson?

        • GeoffU

          Taken by Bills

          • sdcoug

            Hahaha yeah total brain fart. Thanks

      • Volume12

        Miss St DT Chris Jones is from Houston.

        We know about his ‘bulge’ at the combine in his underwear.

        And the mascot for Miss St is a ‘Bull’dog.

        • Pugs1

          Houston, Mississippi not Houston Texas.

          • Volume12

            He’s still from a city called Houston.

            Not convinced it’s him, but wouldn’t surprise me.

          • Mishima

            Maybe Le’Raven Clark.

        • bigDhawk

          Nope.

  6. Grant G

    Here we go! about to “watch” the draft from my phone on the way to a bachelor party. Perfect way to start a guy’s weekend. Let’s grab Bullard/Day/Billings.

  7. bigDhawk

    Ogbah to the Brownies.

  8. vrtkolman

    Obgah goes before Spence, can’t say I agree with that pick.

  9. Volume12

    Good pick for Cleveland.

    BTW, new clue is out.

    ‘La Grange’ by ZZ Top.

  10. SeventiesHawksFan

    I think we’re trading up to get a D lineman, probably in the 40 – 45 range.

  11. GeoffU

    Pass rushers are sellin’ like hotcakes. Though I’ve never bought a hotcake or even know what it is.

    • Volume12

      That would be a pancake my man.

      • GeoffU

        interesting. I was thinking fair food, something like a fennel cake

  12. bigDhawk

    Do the Girls take Jack here?

    • GeoffU

      Close. The other injured guy

    • bigDhawk

      Wow, even better. Jaylon Smith at 34 overall.

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      Wow. Jaylon Smith. Hope his recovery stays on track.

  13. Sea Mode

    Boo hoo, Dodd is off the board…

    Oh well, can’t have em all I guess.

  14. Michael M.

    Woah!!!!

  15. Vista

    Jaylon Smith just went to Dallas

    • Trail Hawk

      Good for him!

  16. troy

    So happy for Jaylon Smith!!!

    • vrtkolman

      Very happy for him too!

    • bigDhawk

      Yup, good for him.

  17. vrtkolman

    lol Dallas

  18. TannerM

    … Are the Cowboys mailing it in this year? I mean, Jaylon Smith hopefully will be amazing… in two years.

    • rowdy

      Right, what are they thinking?

    • Alicamousa

      Maybe they actually are planning for the future? If he’s out for a season and comes back fine it’s a total, total, steal. He’s still only, what, 20?

      • RealRhino2

        Cowboys are so dumb. Defense isn’t nearly good enough now to take a guy who needs a redshirt year, and by the time he’s ready to go, Romo might be gone and they are in rebuilding mode.

  19. Troy

    the feels with smith getting picked ;(

  20. Sea Mode

    I thought the Cowboys were in win now mode…?

    • vrtkolman

      This draft screams of Jerry making all the picks. Lots of flash.

    • GeoffU

      Nah, pretty much always in 8-8 mode

  21. Trail Hawk

    Look for Ragland and Jack to go soon after this…

  22. Volume12

    Glad for Jaylon Smith.

    And glad we didn’t take him.

    Not that I thought we ever would.

    • troy

      What if Myles Jack is there @ #56?

      • troy

        disregard. lol

  23. Vista

    Chargers picked Hunter Henry

    • bigDhawk

      The Bolts are always good for at least one big reach per draft.

  24. TannerM

    Jags move up… do they go with Jack?

    • bigDhawk

      Jags still at 38 on my board. Where they at on yours?

      • bigDhawk

        lol…updated just now.

  25. J2MED

    Hunter Henry, TE, seems like a solid pick for the Bolts

    • John_s

      He’s going to be a solid player in the Heath Miller mold

  26. Volume12

    Not a fan of TE Hunter Henry.

    Doesn’t fit an uptempo offense.

    Next year’s TE class is loaded.

    BTW, keep an eye on VA-Tech’s TE Bucky Hodges for Seattle next year too.

  27. Sea Mode

    Paul Allen in war room today. PC keeping him entertained, as usual. Not a single Mac or iPad in that room today, I assure you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. reggieregg

    Fred T was that dude!

  29. J2MED

    Myles Jack finally finds a home

  30. HOUSE

    Good for Myles Jack and JAC… I wish a speedy recovery and a productive career

  31. C-Dog

    Miles Jack is a Jaguar. Great for Bradley. Watch out of the Jaguars this year.

  32. TannerM

    And here we thought two weeks ago that the Jags were picking between Jack and Ramsey at #5. Come draft time, and they get both.

    • troy

      yeah no doubt… who would have guessed?!! WoW

  33. Madmark

    Yeah for guess Gus that was a steal by the Jg’s

    • bigDhawk

      Two top five picks for Gus. Not bad.

      • sdcoug

        And Fowler from last year

  34. Trail Hawk

    Jags are getting scary good.

  35. 12er

    Nooooooooooooo!!!

  36. Alicamousa

    Man, I hope so badly for the Jags that Jack is fine.

    They’re already adding Fowler, Ramsey, Jack to their defence this year – in addition to all the FAs they picked up. I’d be losing my mind if I was a fan, potentially an incredible haul.

  37. Volume12

    Good pickup for KC.

    Well, none of the clues were him.

  38. bigDhawk

    It probably wasn’t realistic to expect Jones to slip to 56.

  39. C-Dog

    Well, there goes Jones. KC’s and Carolina’s D lines are getting sick.

  40. Alicamousa

    Chris Jones to the Chiefs. Could be great, could be a whole lot of meh. Going to be interesting to see who we go with.

  41. bobbyk

    Hoping for Hargrave and/or Fackrell.

  42. seaspunj

    Any thoughts who picks Derrick Henry? I would like to see him as a Seahawk

    • bigDhawk

      Maybe here to the Phish.

    • C-Dog

      Very possible, I think.

  43. bigDhawk

    Both injury guys off the board and the character guys gone. All the slides are done. Nothing but pure draft picks from here.

    • seaspunj

      Hopefully QB reaches as well

    • HawkfaninMT

      I think Spence still fits into this category… Right?

      • seaspunj

        And there goes Spence to TBay

      • HawkfaninMT

        And there he goes

  44. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Still giddy over Ifedi… woooooooooooooooo

    • bigDhawk

      I’m diggin it too. Did you hear that hack on KJR 10-12 show? Forget him name. He was totally baggin the pick. It was so over the top it sounded like just trolling for a reaction.

      • sdcoug

        I used to work at KJR. Most of those guys are arrogant hacks

      • C-Dog

        I listen to KJR for the laugh of the blow hards freaking out. Tony Softly is a good listen though, and knows his stuff.

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        You are talking about that new guy, I barely ever listen to…..

        • C-Dog

          Softly is a former Husky who used to work in the front office of Carolina. IMO, the only guy worth listening to on KJR who knows his stuff and isn’t full of hyperbole.

      • Coug1990

        I did and I had the same reaction that you did. It was so over the top and without any logic/critical thinking at all. I ended up turning it off it was so ridiculous.

    • Kenny Sloth

      With you on that. He and Webb will boost eachother so much

  45. GeoffU

    Traded up for him? weird, but good for us!

  46. Sea Mode

    ZZ Top: another Z receiver to take the top off defenses?

    La Grange = Le’Raven , Texas Tech.?

    • bigDhawk

      And then Coleman in round 3.

  47. Volume12

    Is the ZZ top clue Andrew Billings or Hassan Ridgeway?

    • Volume12

      A’Shawn Robinson? From Texas.

      • Trail Hawk

        What would you think of his value at 56?

        • Volume12

          Good.

          He’s the ultimate boom or bust, but Seattle’s 2nd round picks always are.

          I like Robinson, but get the concerns.

          • Trail Hawk

            Yeah, at 56 not so bad.

    • Trail Hawk

      Would you mind either?

      • Volume12

        No. Not at all.

        I’d prefer Billings.

        At the same time, PC likes his D-lineman to be seasoned and older.

        Kaufusi?

        • Trail Hawk

          i’d prefer Kafusi myself.

          • Trail Hawk

            Billings might be the most upside.

        • C-Dog

          Ridgeway is doesn’t get beat much by blockers and is gab sound, has a ton of upside.

          • Trail Hawk

            I agree with you there, but if we can coach up Billings I think he can have a bigger impact.

  48. vrtkolman

    There goes Spence, darn! Great pick Tampa.

  49. bigDhawk

    Spence to the Buccos. Nice pick.

  50. TannerM

    Good pick by Tampa.

  51. GeoffU

    Spence gone. No way Kaufusi falls to us.

  52. Trevor

    KC got Jones that really sucks. Last year they get the guy I wanted Morse in Rd #2 and this year they get Jones. They seem to scout and draft similar to Sea for sure.

  53. Ed

    Giants should get Spriggs. They need OT

    • Ed

      I guess they don’t care if Manning gets sacked, just throw fast.

  54. Trevor

    Wow what a draft for Jacksonville Ramsey and Jack. That team is loaded with young talent. Look out AFC South there is a new big dog on the block.

    • bigDhawk

      Time for Gus to produce.

  55. bigDhawk

    Tyler Loc…errr…Sterling Shepard the the G-men.

    • Sea Mode

      Dang NYG is good a selecting WR though. That’s gonna be an even tougher combo to stop.

  56. Ed

    Here could be a run on DL

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      be patient, it will come around pick #56 ๐Ÿ˜›

  57. SteveM

    Could Petes clue be DT Hassan Ridgeway?

  58. Sea Mode

    Might the Bills want Derrick Henry?

    • seaspunj

      Maybe Raiders Pick henry

  59. GeoffU

    These are weird trades

    • bigDhawk

      Apart fromn the Rams and Goff. The weirdest yesterday for me was the Whiners moving way up for Garnett.

  60. Nathan

    Maybe a run on Bama guys now.

  61. bigDhawk

    Only 2 offensive players off the board so far in round 2.

  62. C-Dog

    Bills are loading on on LB.

  63. vrtkolman

    The value in this round might be on the offensive side, though I’d rather we focus on defense …

  64. Volume12

    Could we move up with one of these Tennesse picks?

    We’re getting into that range.

    • C-Dog

      We shall soon see. I kinda think they might hold ship at 56.

      • Trail Hawk

        We know they have the ability. With whatever happens it feels like we’re getting the guy we want.

  65. Nathan

    Does Derrick Henry start to become an option?

    • C-Dog

      Very much so, I think.

  66. John_s

    Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard together? That’s going to be unfair

  67. Sea Mode

    Duh! So obvious!!!

    ZZ Top = Connor McGovern, Mizzou

    • Trail Hawk

      Brilliant!!!!!

      • Volume12

        That makes a lot of sense.

        Also has a big beard IIRC.

        • Sea Mode

          Grange means farm. McGovern is agricultural academics major.

  68. vrtkolman

    Another guy I don’t really like (Correa) off the board, nice!

  69. Sea Mode

    JS making a call, trade chart in hand…

    • Sea Mode

      I don’t want to seem like you know who, but it is pretty obvious that when they wheel out the steps to reach up and take a magnet off their board, it means that guy was on their board. With the supposed 5 min delay, I would say that was Ragland.

  70. TannerM

    Of the eleven picks in the second round so far, eight have been in the front seven.

    • TannerM

      Make that nine of twelve.

  71. HawkfaninMT

    So many great options still, I doubt they trade up unless their guys start disappearing. Possibility of Spriggs too? What an athletic OL that would create

  72. GeoffU

    12 players before we pick, still loaded with options.

  73. C-Dog

    Raiders is where I think Bullard might go.

    • seaspunj

      All these Carroll disciples Raiders Jaguars Falcons make it harder for the steals the Seahawks seem to find. The Chiefs just seem to mirror the Hawks lol

  74. Volume12

    Good pick for Tennessee.

    Correa is a classic Ravens pick. Short arms, good motor, just goes hard.

  75. Ed

    What if the value too good to pass on Spriggs.

    Spriggs/Ifedi/Sokoli/Glowinski/Gilliam

    • bigDhawk

      Lots of speed and finesse on that line but little power.

  76. Nathan

    What’s the link to the war room feed?

  77. Trail Hawk

    Did we trade with Ten.?

    • Ed

      Ten took A. Johnson (Penn St)

      • Trail Hawk

        after oak>

        • Ed

          Bullard and Henry would be nice. I really don’t think they need another G.

          Gilliam/Ifedi/Sokoli/Glowinski/Webb

        • GeoffU

          Nothing yet

          • Trail Hawk

            nope.

            • Trail Hawk

              pick is in

  78. HOUSE

    I liked Jihad Ward @ 56… Just went to OAK

  79. Volume12

    Good for Jihad Ward.

    This kid’s backstory is incredible.

  80. C-Dog

    Jihad Ward. Nice pick for the Raiders. DL run is probably going to happen in full effect now.

  81. Rob Staton

    When those anonymous scouts said Jonathan Bullard was a nice player but not special…

    • HOUSE

      Yeah… With the run on DL, do you think we could grab another OL or Derrick Henry @ #56?

    • C-Dog

      I’m hoping not special enough so that he lands to pick 56.

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      Thank you, anonymous scouts! I wouldn’t mind a trade up to get him if they can find a trade partner.

  82. lil'stink

    Crazy run on defensive players… I wonder if we don’t just go OL at #56 to be ahead if the run on them

  83. Mishima

    Can’t believe Billings is dropping…think I’ll dare to dream.

  84. Kenny Sloth

    QB 3
    RB 1
    OT 5
    OG 1
    C 1
    WR 4, 1
    TE 0, 1

    DE 3, 6
    DT 4, 2
    LB 2, 3
    S 2
    CB 4, 1

    • Kenny Sloth

      And a second round rb

  85. GeoffU

    So for defense we still got:

    Jarran Reed (DT, Alabama)
    T.J. Green (S, Clemson)
    Jonathan Bullard (DE, Florida)
    Bronson Kaufusi (DE, BYU)
    Derrick Henry (RB, Alabama)
    Kyler Fackrell (LB, Utah State)

    Jordan Jenkins, 6โ€™3, 253 pounds, OLB, Georgia
    Aโ€™Shawn Robinson, 6โ€™4, 312 pounds, DT, Alabama
    Joshua Perry, 6โ€™4, 254 pounds, OLB, Ohio State
    Andrew Billings, 6โ€™2, 310 pounds, DT, Baylor
    Suโ€™a Cravens, 6โ€™1, 225 pounds, OLB, Southern California
    Shilique Calhoun, 6โ€™5, 250 pounds, DE, Michigan State
    Maliek Collins, 6โ€™2, 300 pounds, DT, Nebraska
    Javon Hargrave, 6โ€™1 3/8, 309 pounds, DT, South Carolina State

    • GeoffU

      And Derrick Henry for some reason haha

      • GeoffU

        And now to the Titans

  86. Volume12

    I think Detroit is gonna go D-line next.

    Reed? Bullard?

    • C-Dog

      I think Kaufusi to replace Jones.

  87. Barry

    Dammit Titans. I have to love what they are doing and hate they took someone I think could have brought something to the Hawks.

  88. Ed

    Rob,

    Would a 3rd and 4th get another 2nd? Would be great if the Hawks jumped up and got:

    2nd Henry (RB)
    2nd Bullard (DL)
    3rd Henry (DL)
    3rd Striker

  89. Trail Hawk

    GOOD!

    • Trail Hawk

      Glad Henry is off the board.

      • lil'stink

        He never seemed like a Seahawk to me

  90. HOUSE

    WOW… They traded for DeMarco Murray and then draft Henry. Interesting

    • John_s

      Late round pick for Bishop Sankey.

      Let’s do it Hawks!

  91. vrtkolman

    Glad we won’t be tempted to take Henry with our 2nd. Honestly I think he will be good but he’s just not a super good fit with Seattle.

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      I don’t think we were ever going to take him with our second.

    • sdcoug

      Fully agree. I was sweating it

  92. Ed

    Does Murray want out again?

  93. C-Dog

    Well, we can take one Henry off the board. Good pick for the Titans.

  94. Volume12

    Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray?

    Running behind Conklin and Lewan?

    With DGB and Kendall Wright?

    That AFCS is gonna be fascinating.

    Love that pick man!

    • Trail Hawk

      The way Indy has been lately with their picks they be the bottom dweller in the division.

    • seaspunj

      Titans a team to lookout for

  95. TannerM

    Just saw something – the Seahawks waived Philip Sims yesterday, which means they have a single QB on the roster… Potential draft selection this weekend?

    • Volume12

      Dak Prescott.

      Tough, gritty, good fit for a simplified offense.

      Phenomenal backstory.

      • TannerM

        I would absolutely love that, to be honest. Dak brought Miss St football on the map a couple years ago. A good leader.

    • HOUSE

      I think we’ll re-sign T-Jack. I saw Wilson comparisons for Dak Prescott this morning.

      Vernon Adams is getting called a Wilson-lite…

      • Kenny Sloth

        Xtra-lite

        • H M Abdou

          Vernon Adams stinks.

          • Kenny Sloth

            Unfortunately

    • C-Dog

      They are rumored to be targeting a QB, I think.

  96. GeoffU

    Wow no offensive lineman AT ALL since Ifedi

    • Kenny Sloth

      Nick Martin heating up

  97. Darnell

    Pete probably loves Braxton and Su’A. Just IMO.

  98. vrtkolman

    So what is Billings deal everyone?

    • bigDhawk

      Probably goes here at 47 to the Aints.

    • C-Dog

      getting closer to 56.

  99. Sea Mode

    Guys, I think we’re gonna pick Connor McGovern!

    ZZ Top = Mizzou
    La Grange= means farm. He is agricultural academics major.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Bingo. Work backwards!

      • SeventiesHawksFan

        I hooe they trade up to the middle of the third then to get him then. We need an interior D lineman. With no linemen taken yet this round, McGovern is probably still available in the middle of the third.

    • bigDhawk

      Sounds reasonable.

    • Kenny Sloth

      There is a La Grange Missouri

    • bigDhawk

      Gotta pick’em a round early to beat KC.

  100. Ed

    Indy would be smart to get Spriggs. A new C and LT to help keep Luck from missing half the season again.

    • Kenny Sloth

      They have looked at Spriggs. Should be the favorite to take him

      • Trail Hawk

        It’s Indy. They might go WR…

    • lil'stink

      Didn’t the Colts just pay their LT some serious cash?

    • GeoffU

      Or trade the pick to the Packers

  101. Kenny Sloth

    Lions tak Ashawn

  102. CharlieTheUnicorn

    DE/DT Bullard still available!

    • H M Abdou

      Fackrell, too!

      • Kenny Sloth

        Jets eyeing Fackrell. Maybe Indy.

      • GeoffU

        And Kaufusi

  103. Volume12

    I’ll be surprised if Chicago doesn’t take a CB or D-lineman.

    Kendall Fuller anyone?

    • bigDhawk

      Or Billings if NO doesn’t take him.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Jarran Reed, Whitehair?

  104. Sea Mode

    JS on the phone again. Several white “trade cards” (at least this is what I suppose the are after watching yesterday) in front of him.

    Now he looks really pensative and is consulting all around him.

    • Sea Mode

      Shoot, they cut out to some prerecorded interview….

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      Trade up is coming.

    • troy

      we moved up

  105. Hawkn

    So if the Hawks take Spriggs at 56, does Rob get a ‘TEF GOD’ tattoo?

  106. TannerM

    Not surprised with NO’s selection of Thomas. Yes, their defense is absolutely horrible, but their WR corp is a little shallow.

    • Trail Hawk

      Are they going to rely on Rankins to make there edges better? They need pass rushers.

  107. Volume12

    New Orleans has a very good looking receiving core.

    Cooks, Coleman, and now Thomas.

    One of the most underrated receivers in this draft. Along with Daniel Braverman.

  108. Hawkster

    GB take Fackrell?

  109. Kenny Sloth

    Packers picking

    • Sea Mode

      Maybe we were outbid. Who knows? Just fun to speculate.

    • Kenny Sloth

      There’s Sriggs

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Spriggs

  110. HOUSE

    GB grabbed Spriggs… Nice pick

  111. TannerM

    Well, I guess the Colts really didn’t want Spriggs if they traded away their pick that became him.

    • Kenny Sloth

      I guess. Maybe Kelly was their guy

  112. vrtkolman

    Packers take Spriggs? Weird, they have good tackles. Sounds like a future move, since they are going to be in cap trouble with their line soon.

    • TannerM

      They have four offensive linemen on the last year of their contracts this year. Just making sure they are not overrun by turnover with a guy quite a few might have thought could have gone in the first round.

    • Darnell

      Bakhtiari is better off inside. And a pending UFA I believe.

  113. C-Dog

    Packers land Kenny Clark and Jason Spriggs, but Clark R1 and Spriggs R2. Interesting.

    • bigDhawk

      There’s the trade up! Billings?

  114. Trail Hawk

    What is wrong with Indy?

    • Ed

      They think Luck is Superman.

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        They grabbed the best center, so they are trying to address OL

  115. Sea Mode

    Whoa, we got fist pumps and JS stood up to the other phone from which he calls the drafted player.

  116. HOUSE

    CHI traded their pick…

  117. Trail Hawk

    TRADE

    • Trail Hawk

      for our 4th?

    • HOUSE

      Yup… we’re selecting @ #49

  118. Volume12

    Told ya’ll a trade up was coming.

    Here we go!

    • bigDhawk

      We still have all our 3rd round picks on my board.

      • Volume12

        A 4th or future pick?

        The pick is in.

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      This is fabulous news! I hope it’s a d lineman. Bullard or Billings is my guess.

    • HOUSE

      I was hoping we didn’t trade our 3rd rd picks. Good move here

  119. GeoffU

    Great, what’d we trade?

    • seaspunj

      4th round 14th overall

    • HOUSE

      #56 and #124

    • Alec

      We traded our 2nd rounder and 4th rounder.

      • bigDhawk

        What board you watching that gives trade details so fast? NFL board is in slow motion.

        • seaspunj

          Nfl network canada

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Seattle acquired the No. 49 overall pick from the Chicago Bears for the No. 56 overall pick and a fourth-rounder (No. 124).

  120. seaspunj

    Da Bears trade to seahawks !!! Here we go!

  121. Volume12

    I bet Atlanta and the Jets were targeting the same gu we were.

  122. Nathan

    Has to be a defensive pick, getting head of all those sides who took receivers in round 1.

  123. GeoffU

    Lost our 124th, so we still have 3 3rds. Whew!

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      Still three thirds? Amazing. So smart to move in front of Atlanta and Washington.

  124. C-Dog

    Bullard or McGovern I think.

    • HOUSE

      That’s what I’m thinking too

  125. HawkfaninMT

    Bullard is my bet

  126. John_s

    Jarran Reed

  127. Kenny Sloth

    Who did the Falcons want?

  128. nichansen01

    Jarran Reed is a seahawk. Excellent value in the second, and the Hawks still have three picks in the third round.

    • nichansen01

      Projected first rounder.

    • bigDhawk

      There it is.

    • seaspunj

      Moving up for value
      Looks like Mebane replacement

    • seaspunj

      OL in 1st
      DT in 2nd

      My guess in the 3rd
      OL
      RB
      WR

  129. Kenny Sloth

    2 2nd rounders. Bullard McGovern?

    • Kenny Sloth

      Bullshit.

    • bigDhawk

      There goes Martin.

  130. Nathan

    How nice was that, seeing them cheer for the kid.

    • sdcoug

      That was great. Alexander did a great job letting him soak it up.

  131. Volume12

    How cool is this?

    My mom has bone cancer.

    Very touching for me.

    • Nathan

      Loved it.

    • bigDhawk

      Stole the show today.

    • sdcoug

      Thoughts and strength to you and your mom Vol

  132. coachmattson

    What do you think about Pete going back to his roots and talking USC C Max T. in the third? Do you think he could come in and win the starting spot at C? Go Hawks!

  133. vrtkolman

    Awesome great pick! Fantastic value.

  134. GeoffU

    Eh. Run stuffer. Underwhelmed.

    • nichansen01

      Are you kidding me? … Jarran Reed is probably the second best d – tackle in the class. Run defense will continue to be elite.

      • GeoffU

        Don’t worry, I will hold back my negativity until I look more into the guy. He’s a ‘hawk now anyway, so I’ll get myself behind the pick ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Nathan

      Luis Riddick mentioned that he has some athleticism which hasn’t quite shown up on tape/developed yet.

      It sounds like he one of those guys who could look like a massive steal in a couple of years.

  135. C-Dog

    Jarran Reed. I AM SO @#$%ING EXCITED! Did not see that coming. At. All. Both lines just got significantly bigger and nastier.

  136. Volume12

    Yes!

    Most underrated DT in this class.

    He’s immovable at the POA.

    Great motor, plays hard, good athlete.

    Love this pick.

    Best run defender in the class. Hands down.

    • nichansen01

      Perfect replacement for Bane in my opinion.

    • C-Dog

      DUUUUUUUDE. Did not see that coming at all. IMO, Seattle just landed two first round picks, both of them beasts.

  137. nichansen01

    From NFL.com:

    Reed is an elite run defender with the lower body strength to command his gap, but the instincts and timing to be productive as a tackler rather than just a space ยญeater. Reedย’s lack of pass rushing ability creates a potential glassยญ ceiling on his draft stock; however, teams looking for a battle-ยญtested run ยญstuffer will find an instant upgrade who should be able to come in and start immediately if needed.

    Seahawks getting tougher in the trenches.

    • C-Dog

      I think Reed has the traits to push the pocket though. IMO, He could be a lot more disruptive than people think. I don’t know if the drop off from him and Butler is that much. Kinda thought he was going to go first round.

  138. bigDhawk

    Would anyone have rather moved up like that for Billings instead.

  139. HOUSE

    Jarran Reed: “The Seahawks got a good player coming…”

    • C-Dog

      Exciting.

    • GeoffU

      Yeah, saw that. Great attitude.

  140. Volume12

    I never thought we had a shot at this guy.

    Top 20 talent.

    • nichansen01

      I agree! I am very curious about why he slipped into trade up range though.

  141. rowdy

    Can’t believe they traded up for reed, seems desperate

    • Nathan

      Needed to get ahead of texans, vikes, bengals etc.

      • rowdy

        I guess, I like the pick but not the type of player I thought they would trade up for

        • Coug1990

          Yes, because Pete and John have been known for making desperate moves.

          • rowdy

            They have though

          • abark

            lol

    • hawkdawg

      Or smart. Depends on how you look at it.

      • rowdy

        I think it’s smart and safe but doesn’t seem like the pc/js type of early pick

  142. Volume12

    Did ya’ll see that?

    Dude had a pack of Skittles, and did the ‘woof.’

    • bigDhawk

      Yeah that was on point.

  143. SeventiesHawksFan

    Base downs DT. Stop the run. One of the most fundamental tenets of Pete Carroll football. I thought we’d get a more dynamic pass rushing type. But I’m more than pleased with this choice. He can be a ‘core player’ on the D line with Frank Clark for the next several years

    • C-Dog

      I think he has to tools where he could play some nose in the nickel, though. Don’t know if there’s that much of a drop between him and Butler.

    • Stewart Schaefer

      Agreed^ — i think carrolls defense typically just employs interior lineman that specialize so this makes sense. We don’t need a dude who dominates all 3 downs, not our style.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Long term. Nice fit. I didn’t think he would slip this much, so missed mocking him to Seattle ๐Ÿ™

  144. 12er

    Reed is like the perfect fit for what Carroll wants in his 1T. He’ll replace Mebane and start there from day 1. I’m shocked they didn’t want a better athlete, but I love that they’re filling needs with quality players at the top of the draft.

    • bigDhawk

      It’s almost as if PC doesn;t want interior pass rush – just gap integrity. Would rather have moved up for Billings but he is not a the gap technician that Reed is.

      • GeoffU

        Bennett is our interior pass rush. Now it’s up to Frank Clark to step up.

  145. Sea Mode

    “Talk about value, this was my 13th-rated player in the draft. He is always working forward with that powerful base and dominates against the run.” — Daniel Jeremiah

  146. Volume12

    I’m telling you guys right now.

    This kid is better than Billings, Ridgeway, Bullard, or Vernon Butler.

    He’s got grown man strength.

    Great gap discipline.

    He completely controlled that ‘Bama LOS.

    We thought ‘Bane was good?

    Best run stuffer, legit top 20 talent, and he’s not even a pass rusher. Yet.

    What’s not to like? We didn’t talk about him?

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      We thought he would be gone by the end of round #1

    • Kenny Sloth

      Best NT this year

    • Veryal

      I agree! We didn’t talk about him because I think we all thought he’d be gone! I know I did haha

    • Sea Mode

      #3 ranked tackle on Walter Football behind only Buckner and Rankins:

      Jarran Reed, 3-4DE, Alabama
      Height: 6-3. Weight: 311. Arm: 32. Hand 10.76.
      40 Time: 5.21.
      Projected Round (2016): 1.
      4/27/16: Teams picking in the middle of Round 1 have told me that Reed is in the running for their first-round pick. He is a good run stuffer, but doesn’t offer a lot in the pass rush. Reed does have the speed and athleticism to develop more pass-rushing skills as a professional though.

      Reed had a solid combine workout. His 40 time wasn’t special, but he did well in the field drills. In 2015, Reed totaled 53 tackles with 4.5 for a loss, one sack and two passes batted. At the Senior Bowl, he flashed some of his pass-rush potential. Sources said that Reed might end up as a top-25 pick.

      8/22/15: Reed was an All-SEC honorable mention in 2014. He was a quality run defender for Alabama with 55 tackles, 6.5 for a loss, one sack, and five passes broken up. Reed needs to improve his pass rush to rise as a senior.

    • Trail Hawk

      Outstanding pick. Did not see him being available at all.

    • Steele

      “This kid is better than Billings, Ridgeway, Bullard, or Vernon Butler.”

      Different kind of player, Volume.

      • Volume12

        He’s different than Bullard.

        He’s no different than Ridgeway, Billings, or Butler.

        None of those 3 rush the passer. They’re all 1-techs.

        • C-Dog

          I think he can play 1, 3 and 5 tech. IMO, he could be pretty versatile for Carroll, but love his potential lining up between guard and center.

    • rowdy

      I’m actually shocked because it’s usually the type don’t spend much draft capital on. He’s just what we need and it’s great that we have a player that can stick around for awhile

  147. Grant G

    Two picks, two physical starters on the line. No complaints from my point of view

    • GerryG

      ^this

  148. TannerM

    Hackenberg… Oh dear.

  149. Sea Mode

    Haha, they packed it all up in the War Room. Only a couple guys still there. Looks like we’ll be waiting a while.

    • bigDhawk

      Yeah time for their break. Seems like they’re content to take their picks at the end of round 3.

      • GeoffU

        Yeah, don’t think they’re trading any more picks. Too many good players

  150. Rob Harrison

    If the scouting report on ESPN.com is to be believed that “Reed has shown the ability to push the pocket from the interior,” then he has the ability to do what Pete wants from a DT against the pass. He’s not looking so much for penetrators as for tackles who will collapse the pocket and force the QB outside. Sounds to me like Reed has the ability to do that. If so, he’s worth the price, and more than worth it.

    • C-Dog

      Be gap sound, but disruptive. That was Mebane in his prime.

  151. C-Dog

    Been salivating for Vernon Butler for weeks now, was bittersweet last night seeing him go to the Panthers, but I think Seattle got a player in Reed where the drop off isn’t going to be that much. Can play nose, 3 tech, and 5 tech. Tough as they get. Thought he was going to do in the teens yesterday.

    Germain Ifedi and Jarran Reed are Seattle Seahawks. Man, am I dreaming?

    • nichansen01

      Reed is better than Butler.

      • C-Dog

        Wouldn’t take it that far. I think Butler has the makings of being a special player at the next level, but Reed is very good, and might be right there with him when all is said. Tough to project those Bama DLs a bit, I think.

        • GeoffU

          22.5 tackles for loss for Butler over the last two years.
          11 for Reed…

          • C-Dog

            Got no problem with that at all. I’d take either. IMO, I think Butler might have a bit more upside, but Reed is right there with him.

          • HawkBrewer(d)

            One also played for Alabama against a strong SEC, while the other played through what I assume was a fairly lackluster Louisiana Tech schedule. So I’m not convinced the TFL difference is something to put a ton weight into. Just something to consider… I could be wrong

            • Magmatizer

              Reed also has 108 tackles over the last 2 seasons, and had 0 missed or broken tackles last season. If there’s one thing the Seahawks like from their interior D-lineman, it’s consistency.

              • Magmatizer

                *had. My bad

  152. Volume12

    We’ve never needed a DT before.

    Had to be adressed.

    They traded up for him because he’s legit.

    I thought they were scouting someone else at ‘Bama not him.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Get the second best run stuffer in the draft.

      Fell because of low pass rush.

    • C-Dog

      At least now folks won’t have to read anymore of my obsessive clamoring for one. Go Hawks!

    • rowdy

      Definitely a need!

  153. Steele

    Reed. There is the Bane replacement. 2-down 2-gap, great run stuffer. Not a pass rusher, although they will try to get him to do that.

    I thought they’d go in this direction because Siliga is a one year rental. Will they go for more of a pass rusher later?

    I’m concerned they will miss out on McGovern/Dahl/Haeg. Would not have minded going for McG a few spots early.

    • Volume12

      Yeah, you called it man.

      When you said that the 1-tech was a glaring hole, my antennae picked up.

      I thought we had no shot at Reed.

    • Troy

      i think it highly unlikely they will miss out on all three of mcgovern/dahl/haeg (gonna also throw in coleman), I am almost positive they will get at least one of those guys, maybe 2 if lucky.

      • Steele

        Unless they move up, I am worried. Will McG/Dahl/Haeg be there at the end of rd. 3? Better start lining up the plan B and C.

    • C-Dog

      I think they very well could. I’m thinking the Panther’s model a few years ago of grabbing the gap sound 1 tech first, and then going after a pass rushing 3 tech later. Bullard, Henry, Ridgeway, Hargrave, Kaufusi, Ioannidis, Onyemata, Day. This DL class is loaded.

  154. Saxon

    Reed is the manly Gurley neutralizer.

    But hope we can find some inside pass rush in R3.

  155. Cysco

    Control the point of attack and stop the run

    That’s core to the Seahawks defensive philosophy.

    In hindsight, we all probably should have spent more time discussing him before the draft. He’s the best run stuffing lineman in the draft.

    Neither pick has been “sexy” but they are getting better/deeper in the trenches. I’m onboard.

    • Sea Mode

      Honestly I didn’t think we would even have a chance at him. Should have gone mid first round.

    • GeoffU

      Don’t think anyone saw Reed falling this far. Doubt they would’ve picked a run stuffer otherwise. Reed better be damn special, is what I’m saying.

  156. Sea Mode

    He was the in the green room to be picked on day 1 for cryin’ out loud. Highway robbery by JS!

    • Kenny Sloth

      Plenty of ?’s i’d say this is a more appropriate spot for him

      • Kenny Sloth

        I thought Reed was a Red Bryant 5 tech. Definitely wasn’t looking for 1 techs past Butler

  157. Veryal

    Hoping kaufasi, fackrell, McGovern, dahl, and Ervin will still be there. Loving our draft thus far!

    • Dawgma

      If we can get Kaufusi, McGovern, and Ervin at the back of the third I will be very surprised. Also, very happy. Hell, I’d take any one of the three.

      • Willyeye

        Getting those 3 would make this draft perfect to that point.

  158. Old but Slow

    What a nice pick. I did not consider him because I thought he would surely go in the top 20. I am jacked.

  159. CharlieTheUnicorn

    There is going to be some extreme value RBs in the 3rd round… love it!

  160. 12er

    2 picks, 2 day one starters. The top physical specimen at OT in the draft in round 1, the top run stuffing DT in the draft in round 2.

  161. Mike Kelly

    I like this pick. Thought we would be able to get Vernon Butler but obviously other GMs are smart too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very happy so far with the picks the Seahawks have made. I would be overjoyed if we can get Conner McGovern. Then I do not care what they do after that. 3 stud linemen is all I want.

  162. Volume12

    Deion Jones to Atlanta.

    Him and Keanu Neal in DQ’s defense?

    Wow!

    • bigDhawk

      Speed.

    • Barry

      Yup. Both make a ton of sense

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      They are doing a nice job upgrading the defense.

  163. GeoffU

    Redskins should pick Connor Cook haha

  164. TannerM

    Dan Quinn and the Falcons are really trying hard to make their D into the Seahawk D.

  165. bigDhawk

    Deion Jones to ATL. Quinn picking off of Rob’s big board.

  166. Mark Souza

    I’m disappointed. If they wanted a run stuffer, they could have waited until the 4th round yeah, the pick they gave up). They passed on Cody Whitehair to get a one-dimensional DT. Are they ever going to get a DT that can pressure the quarterback?

    • bigDhawk

      Nope. Just stay in the gap. That’s all PC wants.

    • 12er

      They’ll take a nickel rusher in round 3, watch.

    • Rob Staton

      Whitehair was a TEF flop. Not sure he was ever considered. There’s a reason why he’s dropping.

    • Volume12

      Not their style.

      We need to accept the fact that PC might not ever have a pass rusher from the DT spot.

      It”s why they like the Bennett’s of the world. Versatility, technique/hand use.

      Guys like Bennett are too quick for OGs. Once they cross the guards face, game over.

    • Steele

      Mark S., I’m ok but not ecstatic about Reed. You’re right, run stuffers are available lower down. Reed fans will say he is an elite run defender. Reed’s tackle totals were not super, but I suppose he is more of an “occupier” than tackler.

      • Coug1990

        Getting around 55 tackles in each of the last two years is very good for a DT. Understand as well that as deep as Alabama is, ever player is a part of a rotation.

        • Steele

          This is true. He was rotated out on 3rd down.

    • Cysco

      The Seahawks gave up the fewest rushing yards in the league by a good margin. That’s what they do. It’s their DNA. Stopping the run is core to their defensive philosophy. If you want crazy interior QB pressure you’re following the wrong team. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • David

      If you are going to get a run stuffer you might as well get the best run stuffer in the entire draft in the 2nd round. Any guy they take in rd 4 is not the quality of Reed. Stopping the run is the key tenet in PCs defense, they’re run defense which was #1 last year just got a lot better.

    • hawkdawg

      Because that “one dimension” is crucial to their defensive philosophy, and the guys they could get in the 4th round couldn’t hold Reed’s jock strap as a run stuffer.

    • Chris

      Kind of hard to say what he’ll be on the Hawks other than that he’ll be a solid run defender. Not going to be 2-gapping like at ‘Bama so he might actually be tougher under a different scheme.

      Getting a guaranteed, solid, 2 down player as a starter in the 2nd round isn’t bad. And that’s his floor.

    • C-Dog

      But he has the upside to be a dominant run defender and has the power and wheels to push the pocket. He could factor in some on 3rd downs. When Mebane was in his prime, he would stay on the field in the nickel. I think Reed could do that.

  167. Josh emmett

    perry from Ohio state or Jenkins from Georgia next please

    • Kenny Sloth

      Jenkinssss

  168. Kenny Sloth

    Clue giving Jarran Reed

    • Sea Mode

      Nope. (or at least I sure don’t see it) Might have just been opportunistic when they saw how far he fell, in which case they would not have had a draft clue to send out before hand.

      • GeoffU

        Pretty sure they didn’t expect him to get into range. Also, it’s obvious Schneider didn’t want to let go of any of his 3rds! But once he got in range of our fourth —

  169. sdcoug

    I felt there were times last year our D line got pushed off the ball. I am stoked for this pick. Teams were clearly enamored over the edge rushers; well…we’re pretty darn good there (avril, Bennett, Clark, clem). It allowed Reed to fall in our lap and I’ll take it all day long.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Solid points. Time to slap some sense into the Rams OL and Panthers OL.

  170. Madmark

    what was the price to move up and get reed

    kaufusi with one of our thirds?? Is it possible??

    • Volume12

      Let me ask ya this.

      Did we think Reed, Billings and the like would be alive in the mid-late 2nd.

      It’s entirely possible.

  172. Kenny Sloth

    Bengals get Fuller

    • Kenny Sloth

      Boyd brainfart

  173. SeventiesHawksFan

    I still want them to find a way to get a pass rushing DT / DE. Bullard and Kaufausi are probably not getting past the top of the third. McGovern would be nice but Sokoli is slated as center of the future already. I’d rather get a pass rusher and take the best of Dahl / McGovern / Haeg who’s available at the bottom of the third.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Tapper still up

      • Sea Mode

        Please no, he just came across to me as having the wrong attitude, no passion for the game. Maybe I’m totally wrong on that cause I only watched some interviews and tape but I would prefer even Blair III to him.

    • hawkdawg

      If Hill can stay healthy, we may already have one on the roster…

  174. Steve Nelsen

    Rob had Reed at 16 to Detroit in his final mock. We got a bargain.

    And we still have three 3rd-round picks. I can’t wait.

    • Coug1990

      You are right. Rob must have thought a lot of him. Of course, he is predicting what teams will do, not what he thinks is best.

      Still, in the Ifedi article, Rob mentioned Reed as a player that was still available.

      I am excited. The Seahawks have picked up around 635lbs the last two days and I expect them to add more than 600lbs more before the evening is finished.

    • DC

      In the Alabama games I watched this year their D Line absolutely dominated the line of scrimmage. PC & JS look for guys that are GREAT at something. I love the Reed pick! Before all else you stop the run. No more Jonathan Stewart 75 yard runs up the gut. Reed is an immovable object. Bring it Gurley!

      We are getting back to basics. Win the line of scrimmage.

  175. bigDhawk

    Bullard has to go here to Da Bearsss

  176. GeoffU

    Well Kaufusi, Bullard, Fackrell still there at our old 56

  177. Dawgma

    REally good top tier pass rushing DTs go in the top 15. I’m sure they would pick, say Aaron Donald…except they wont ever get a chance to.

  178. bigDhawk

    There goes Whitehair. Can we call it a slide for Billings and Bullard?

    • C-Dog

      They could make a play for Bullard in the 3rd.

  179. Nathan

    How good does Dick Butkus look, for a guy his age, who played in such a violent era.

  180. Ground_Hawk

    Does anyone know Reed’s wTEF score?

    • Rob Staton

      He never did the bench.

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        He did just fine ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • HaroldSeattle

        Not impressive in Youngs SLA standings.

        • Kenny Sloth

          True. Big reason I didnt look at him.

          As much as we know about their OL preferences. We have little info on their DT’s

          They have good agility drills. Not too tall.

          Interesting new information

      • Ground_Hawk

        That’s too bad. I’m surprised that they took Reed when it seems like there are more athletic prospects who could perform a similar role. I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do, for Seattle!

    • Sea Mode

      He did not bench, so we can’t really calculate it, but if we give him the average among this year’s DTs (27) he scores a 2.89 TEF and 88.85 wTEF.

      • Ground_Hawk

        Thanks Sea Mode!

  181. Kenny Sloth

    Colts take billings?

    • bigDhawk

      TJ Green. Billings would have been a steal but Green is solid.

  182. Volume12

    Our D-line coach Travis Jones came into the war rom before this pick.

    Think he wanted Reed?

  183. CharlieTheUnicorn

    OT Coleman and Clark still available
    S/CB Davis still available
    DT Billings still available
    SS Bell still available

    Plenty of good talent!!!

    • bigDhawk

      And Bullard.

  184. Volume12

    Indy might’ve just got the best hybrid DB in the draft.

    What a pick.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Surprised me, but a perfect fit

  185. bigDhawk

    Reed presser on KJR right now.

  186. bobbyk

    They got two physical maulers for each side of the ball. Can’t complain about that.

    Still hoping they can get Bullard, Fackrell, or Hargrave somehow.

  187. Robert

    So often when the dust settles and we look back on a previous draft after the player development has kicked in and we realize PCJS gleened multiple 1st round talents right out from underneath the noses of 31 other teams!

  188. HOUSE

    TB just traded up for a K

  189. bigDhawk

    wow, TB takes a kicker at 59 overall. Guess they plan on kicking a lot of field goals.

    • abark

      ahh, I like that ” guess they plan on kicking a lot of field goals”!

  190. Veryal

    Round 2 kicker?!?!

    • seaspunj

      That’s fantastic! Traded up too! 1 more option for the Seahawks!

  191. GeoffU

    Wow, Bucs get demoted to the college rank. That’s ridiculous.

  192. Forrest

    So I think McGovern OR Dahl, Cajuste, and maybe Killibrew or Ervin in the 3rd. Definitely OL, WR/TE, RB, and DE before the draft is done.

    • H M Abdou

      No, thank you, not Dahl – he’s overrated.

  193. Volume12

    Jarran Reed has been talking about the Seahawks since the Senior Bowl.

    For the past 6 weeks he’s been wearing a Marinere hat.

    Was eating Skittles when Seattle selected him.

    Says this is a dream cone true.

    We just got 2 lineman on both sides of the ball from the NFLs minor league. AKA SEC.

    ‘Bama and Nick Saban run an NFL defense.

    3-4 personnel for a 4-3 defense.

    • bigDhawk

      Is that you, Tim Ruskell?

      • Volume12

        He said ‘fast and physical is all I know.’

        PC/JS thought he was too valuable to slide any further.

        This trade up reminds me of the Lockett pick.

        • bigDhawk

          Yeah, I don’t hate the pick. Just giving you a hard time.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Big Nose tackle. Is this the Rodney Dangerfield hint Fat fat fat fat

      • sdcoug

        I can’t imagine they thought he’d be there…so doubt there’s a specific clue to him

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      He’s been dreaming of being a Hawk? Really? That’s cool.

    • Lewis

      Nice film room interview from 3 weeks ago if you haven’t seen it

    • Producehawk

      Just got home from work and I am stoked about the pick. Now I can relax and watch the third round fireworks.

  195. Steele

    Would any of you have preferred Nick Martin, who went one spot later, instead of Reed?

    • bigDhawk

      Ask me in two years when Sokoli is either a boom or bust.

    • Trail Hawk

      No

      • HOUSE

        No. After watching Martin tape, I see LIMITATIONS. I don’t know if its me unfairly comparing him to his brother…

    • David

      No. Lewis is serviceable until Sokoli is ready. Sokoli has potential.

      • Jarhead's Sokoli Bandwagon

        Honestly Soke’s potential is the thing I am most excited for. This draft has been meh for me so far, so having Soke coming in is like having a fresh pick to root for

  196. bigDhawk

    Pats gonna get Bullard of Billing. Nauseating.

    • bigDhawk

      ‘or’

      • Beanhawk

        maybe, but they released Easley in part because of their depth there.

    • GeoffU

      Or Cyrus Jones

  197. Madmark

    2nd round kicker , I see everything now.

  198. Michael (CLT)

    Billings and Bullard most likely have a medical flag

    • bigDhawk

      Has to be something. It’s a legit slide for both at this point.

      • Michael (CLT)

        Tots is over Billings and Bullard. Who’d have thought?

        • Michael (CLT)

          *Gotsis

  199. Kenny Sloth

    We Trade Up…and we trade down..

    • Volume12

      If we don t trade back into the 4th, highly likel, Seattle is gonna target sleepers and UDFAs the rest of the way.

      Because if we pick 3 times in the 3rd, there’s our needs right there.

  200. Miles

    So we are saying Jarran Reed is not a great pass rusher. Does that mean he can NOT collapse the pocket on pass plays?

    • Kenny Sloth

      Been furiously watching youtube and no he doesnt appear to from nt. Single or doubled

      • Sea Mode

        Rob says above to watch the 4th quarter of the Senior Bowl game to see why arguably he was the MVP.

        • Miles

          I am happy he is a great run stuffer. I am having a hard time getting too excited if he can’t provide a Powerful push on the inside for pass plays. We knew this wasn’t a good draft for pass rushing DTs, but that’s what our DLine really lacks.

      • Lewis

        I think his primary role will be to eat double teams so the other guys have a shot.

    • C-Dog

      I think he can be a pocket pusher. He’s probably not going to be a sack artist, but he can be disruptive.

    • Chris

      Honestly doesn’t look like he does much of that.

      He’ll be 1-gapping with the hawks so that might mean he’ll be able to be more aggressive, so that could be a part of his game that emerges, but at this point I don’t think we’ve seen it. He gets doubled on most plays and all he’s really shown is the ability to hold his ground, get his hands up fast and hard and control his ground, and move intelligently toward plays coming at him.

      If he can get isolated 1v1 more often I could see him bull-rushing successfully from time to time, but he’s a bit too slow and arms too short to do much than try to power his way through. He seems to have a lot of power though against college OL when that happens, we’ll see in the NFL …

      • Stewart Schaefer

        Bama notoriously stays home with 7+ in coverage…and they ask the interior to stay home and corral upfield/edge pressure to prevent QB escapability. I think it has more to do with his role than his ability. Not gonna be even a replacement level pass rusher but he can/will provide some pocket collapse.

    • Steele

      He flashed pass rush in the Senior Bowl, but was primarily run stuffer period for years. Sincerely hope they develop his pass rush skills in a hurry.

  201. Willyeye

    Wow, so we traded #26, #56, and #124; for #31, #49, and #94. I’m ecstatic so far.

    • David

      When you look at it that way, that’s insane. Moved back 5 spots in the first and moved up big in the 2nd and moved our 4th to 3rd.

  202. Greg Haugsven

    How about Dahl, Cajuste, and Ervin

    • GeoffU

      Kaufusi, Dahl, Ervin, Cajuste in the 5th ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Vin

      Dahl is so overrated.

      • Coug1990

        Why do you think this?

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      This is going to be very close to how this plays out

      • Greg Haugsven

        Kaufusi would be nice but will probably be gone.

        • CharlieTheUnicorn

          it is going to be close, very close

    • Forrest

      Those 3 are on my wish list. I would love if they picked up at least one of those guys. Cajuste is a personal favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚

  203. Sea Mode

    Packers acquire pick No. 48
    Colts acquire picks Nos. 57, 125 and 248

    Seahawks acquire pick No. 49
    Bears acquire picks Nos. 56, and 124

    Didn’t even have to throw in the 7th rounder…

  204. GeoffU

    Can’t believe all these short armed CB’s going so high

    • GeoffU

      Big run on CB’s, this is awesome. Push those other players down the board!

    • Steele

      Different teams, different systems.

      Patriots got a smurfy nickel back with their first pick. A surprise to me, but it is in keeping with their history. They need a pass rusher badly.

      • Producehawk

        Would love for the Pats to boot this draft!

  205. David

    Love all the DBs and kickers coming off the board this round. We are going to have some serious talent to pick from in the 3rd.

  206. bigDhawk

    Wow, Bradberry to the Kitties at 62. Desperate to replace Josh Norman.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Lots of CBs going all over.

      Pats missed Sean Davis lmao. Panicked imo

  207. Veryal

    Damn. Was hoping for bradberry late round

  208. bigDhawk

    Hey V12, there goes Gotsis. You and I were geeking over him during a GT game last season, haha.

    • Producehawk

      200th rank on some boards.

      • bigDhawk

        Yeah, but he wins getting off the bus.

      • Volume12

        Right?

        I thought the same thing.

        Was hoping maybe Seattle would target him in like round 5 or something.
        I

      • HawkBrewer(d)

        I was hoping for him in the 4th, maybe 3rd comp, since it’s practically a 4th, but certainly didn’t see him closing out rd 2

  209. C-Dog

    Gotsis ahead of Bullard. Did not see that coming at all.

  210. Greg Haugsven

    So many good players left but with no 4th we go a long way without picking after 97

    • sdcoug

      Just pretend that last 3rd is an early 4th ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • bigDhawk

      We could trade back with one of our late thirds.

    • Coug1990

      Mow the lawn, go to the gym, or find something to do before you sit down to watch the rest of the draft

  211. HOUSE

    Schneider on the phone again…

    Anyone upset that we got Jarran Reed, just think, we could have gotten Adam Gotsis

    • bigDhawk

      Would rather have had Billings in that spot, myself.

      • David

        But how would you have felt if they had not taken Reed or Billings and took Gotsis? At least we know why they took Reed. He is a dominate and disciplined gap defender which Billings is not. TY McGill was cut after a great preseason last year for freelancing.

        • bigDhawk

          Yeah I was bummed about McGill. Freelancing, shmeelancing…as long as he gets home, which he was doing.

      • Chris

        You beat me to it

      Not mad about that … would’ve preferred Billings over Reed though.

    Have a shot at OLBs Perry and Fackerall still

    TEF guys left at the moment include McGovern, Haeg, Dahl & Vaitai plus our fan favorite Coleman. We’ve beaten 4 of those guys to death.

      • DC

        304, 304, 304 ,320 & 307 lbs.

        Not exactly small. Size + explosion.

        Add in a healthy Coleman at LG to our current group… Makes a nice daydream.

      Big deal, let him go.

  220. Kenny Sloth

    I don’t think Schneider wants to sit on his hands, here

  221. vrtkolman

    Wow, some major reaches at the end of the 2nd round. Pats panic and take Cyrus Jones, and the Panthers take a CB who could have gone undrafted.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Yep major knee jerk pick by them. They wanted Sean Davis.

  222. David

    Anyone else think it’s funny that when they show a white guy playing a position generally dominated by African Americans (DE), of course they comp Nassib to the one prominent white guy DE (Jared Allen)

  223. Steve Nelsen

    Bullard, Fackrell, Kaufusi, McGovern, Ervin…

    • H M Abdou

      Yessir.

  224. HaroldSeattle

    Hope everyone high on Reed is on the money. Myself hate that the Seahawks picked a run stuffer in the second round, much rather see someone that can pressure the QB as a DT. The fact they moved up and gave a fourth, really disappoints me. Reed needs to be awesome to justify this pick, because the Seahawks have always found some cheap vet to do this job and do it well.

    • C-Dog

      IMO, he has a chance to be a dominant player. Would have been top 15 pick in other draft years.

    • bigDhawk

      Wasn’t Mebane a second or third round pick? That’s probably the comp.

      • Veryal

        Not many pass rushing DT this year especially not round 2

      • HaroldSeattle

        Seahawks give up a fourth for him?

      • Coug1990

        Mebane was a third round pick. He was only a run stuffer when he was drafted and while never a good pass rusher, became better as the years went along.

    • Vin

      Agree with Harold on this. I’ll admit that I know little to nothing on Reed. Was hoping for more of a PR DT, and maybe there isn’t a DT, outside of Rankins, that can do that. We did lose Bane so this makes sense. When the run on DL started, the trade up made sense, but afterwards I don’t think any DL taken to 56. Hindsight 20-20 but I’ll wonder for a day or 2 if the trade was needed….in JS and PC I trust.

    • LantermanC

      Agreed. It was just one year ago where Pot Roast and Stephen Paeia, both good run stuffing DT went for around $4M each. Not super expensive.

  225. C-Dog

    Dream picks for R3 include Jonathan Bullard, Joshua Perry, Connor McGovern, Joe Dahl, Joe Haeg, Willie Henry, Hassan Ridgeway, Tyler Ervin, Braxton Miller, Charles Tapper, Bronson Kaufusi, Travis Feeney, Miles Killebrew, Devon Cajuste, Shon Coleman, Maliek Collins. Man, lots of players left on board.

  226. bigDhawk

    Collins a decent pick at 67 for the Girls.

    • C-Dog

      Yeah, that’s a decent pick up as a rush 3 tech, gets knocked to the ground a lot though.

  227. Sea Mode

    Rob and everybody, nice article here for you to Reed until the Hawks’ picks come along:
    http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/11/inside_jarran_reeds_long_windi.html

  228. DD

    Reed sounds like a fun guy on ESPN radio, well spoken.
    when asked about got picked a little bit late.
    He replied with how he stay with his familiy, and immediately ackowledge he is going to play for a
    GREAT DEFNESE! and loves taking on people running at him, which is what exactly what Bane was doing.
    and he talkes about the brotherhood with Regland, Robinson.
    and he loves Skittles too!
    two down run stuffer not a problem in our scheme
    he plays End for Bama too, maybe BIG RED Bryant role too?

  229. bigDhawk

    Blue light CB special on aisle three.

    Reed has only played 2 years of CFB and he’s already the best run-stuffer in this draft.

    He’s a JUCO transfer. Something PC/JS love. They’ve taken one every single year.

    He fell because he doesn’t rush the passer.

    You think he can’t becomr one after only playing 2 years and dominating SEC O-lines.

    Underrated pas rusher IMO.

    His upside and ceiling is ridiculous.

    • Sea Mode

      I agree. Plenty of room to grow. Only 22 years old.

    • C-Dog

      He will be disruptive, I can almost guarantee it. I didn’t think he would be there at 26, I thought Detroit, Cincy, or Pitt was going to take him.

    • rowdy

      I also remember reading on here that Bama doesn’t want there DT to rush, just play gap control and defend the run

      • C-Dog

        They ask them to 2 gab and hold there ground. I remember reading reports all season long that said while Robinson gets all the hype, Reed is the better player was more athletic upside.

      • David

        Hmm that’s funny, what pro team has the same approach to defense…

    • vrtkolman

      He’s definitely an underrated athlete. He’s not just some big, fat, strong guy who takes on double teams.

    • Chris

      Unfortunately no evidence of underrated pass rusher.

      Nonetheless, a great run-stuffing DT starter with a 2nd round pick isn’t bad value. I think some of the other remaining DTs have a higher ceiling, but this guy should be able to come in and start as a rookie for sure. That’s exactly what the Hawks want on 1st and 2nd down, so in that respect I think this is a about as safe a pick as could be. If any unexpected upside emerges, that’s all bonus. Even if he only becomes exactly what we know he can be, it’s still a good pick for his position in the draft.

  233. bigDhawk

    Whiners get Ngakoue. Darn.

    • DC

      Jags

      • bigDhawk

        woops, lol. Yay then!

    • Producehawk

      Jags.

    • sdcoug

      Jags did

  234. Cameron

    Man I hate every player the 9rs have taken so AKA I LOVE THEIR DRAFT

    • Veryal

      Buckner is a beast

      • Kenny Sloth

        Maybe if they had a pass rusher

      • Cameron

        Very overrated for me. Plays high. Good hands though.

  235. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Bullard is getting closer

    • DC

      So is Coleman

      • bigDhawk

        Bullard, Coleman, McGovern at the end of round three, anyone? Heck, Billings too at this rate.

        • Chris

          Yikes, unfortunately I think Billings would be off the board now. With Reed picked, which apparently they clearly preferred for whatever reasons, another mainly run-stuffing DT is unlikely.

          That is unless they want to move one of them to the 5 tech on 1st/2nd downs … yarrr! That’d be pretty sweet actually.

    • C-Dog

      Bring it on!

  236. Sea Mode

    Tom Cable in the War Room, everybody. Smiles all around.

    • Steve Nelsen

      Cable knows he will get another player in Round 3. I’m hoping for McGovern. His strength is insane and I would love to see him battle some DTs as our LG.

  237. C-Dog

    Dahl, McGovern, Coleman, or Haeg.

  238. bigDhawk

    Kaufusi to the Ravens.

    • Producehawk

      Crap oh well cannot get them all.

    • Butter

      Ozzie Newsome is Rob’s evil twin or he simply drafted off this blog.

  239. seaspunj

    Dang those ravens

    Once again the Ravens scouting dept have been reading on Rob’s blog

    • Producehawk

      Like their draft so far.

    • Kenny Sloth

      They stay on here.

      Ozzie Newsome

  240. Volume12

    Rowdy brings up a good point.

    He’s extremely disciplined, because that’s ‘Bama asks of him.

    Day 1 starter IMO.

    • Trail Hawk

      It will be interesting to see his pass rush ability. ‘Bama also sat him on pass rushing downs. Read into that what you will. Could mean he can’t or just that it was by design. Only 2 years playing ball, don’t want him getting overwhelmed, too many techniques to teach, focus on run stopping.

  241. Kenny Sloth

    Ahhh painful

  242. David

    Wow, if we can pick up Braxton Miller at the end of the 3rd I would take that all day over Ervin

    • C-Dog

      I would take both.

    • Butter

      We still have a wild Shon Coleman to catch!

      • Chris

        Now that I would love to see

        • Chris

          Argh,nevermind. Stopped looking at the draft for a few secs … gone.

  243. Kenny Sloth

    Year of the DB?

  244. Sea Mode

    Amazingly all quiet on the RB front. Will we be the next to take one? Kenyan Drake is my guess.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Prosise? Marshall? Daniel Lasco? Alex Collins? Jordan Howard, probably.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Howard to Packers?

    • Volume12

      Drake, Booker, Perkins, or Ervin.

      All would be excellent backups to Rawls or share carries.

      Drake or Ervin would give us an offensive weapon to move around.

      Dixon and Marshall too.

      • Kenny Sloth

        I like Keith Marshall’s explosion

        • Lewis

          And he doesn’t have tiny hands like some of the others

  245. Producehawk

    Giants have done nothing in the trenches…..good.

    • Producehawk

      Bears crap.

  246. C-Dog

    Area scout Jim Nagy says Reed is the best run stuffer he’s seen in the long time, saw the upside as a rusher as the season went on and during the Senior Bowl. Consistent every game. The Alpha Dog of Bama’s program. Go freaking Hawks.

    • bigDhawk

      Said similar things about Kelley, the center.

    • Coug1990

      Yes, Nagy thought he was a first round pick. He said Alabama didn’t ask him to rush the passer. But, in the Senior Bowl he was asked to rush the passer and was great.

  247. nichansen01

    Bullard, Billings and Ridgeway really falling… Dahl Haeg and Mcgovern still on the board…

  248. Steele

    There goes Kaufusi. Oh well. I had been warming up the idea of him.

    I was just thinking, while looking at remaining pass rushers, that there are so few. Almost none left with that edge/bend. Kaufusi’s sheer size and height could have been utilized in lieu of that.

    • Vin

      After Rob’s articles on Bullard and Kaufusi, I too had warmed to the idea of either or/both. I’m assuming now begins the run on OL as Martin and Whitehair are the only ones gone that were in discussion at one point or another.

  249. Greg Haugsven

    How do you watch the feed and can you do it on a mo-bile

  250. Sea Mode

    Browns have consecutive picks coming up here at 76/77. Possible trade partner?

    • bigDhawk

      For who though? Billings is the only player I would trade up for here.

  251. HOUSE

    Bullard to Bears…

    • Producehawk

      Now our players are going fast.

  252. bigDhawk

    Finally Bullard goes, to DaBearsss.

  253. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Drake is gone now……. 3 RB down

    • Kenny Sloth

      Sea Mode! Good call!

      • nichansen01

        I am surprised he went ahead of Booker and Perkins.

      • Sea Mode

        Don’t worry, Tyler Ervin is the backup plan.

  254. linehawk

    The Hawks often got run over by big backs last year (like Jonathan Stewart). Its a good pick that way. Only concern is his skills overlap too much with Rubin?

    • David

      They like Rubin at 3T in base. Reed is a perfect replacement as 1T in base. Sitting at 26 the Hawks had little chance to get any top 20 talent at any position and they got one in the 2nd round at a position of need.

  255. nichansen01

    Bullard is a bear, Billings, Henry Ridgeway and Hargraves still on the board. Surprised Gotsis went in the second.

    • Producehawk

      Thought gotis would be a fourth.

  256. C-Dog

    So long Bullard. Bears get a good player.

  257. Greg Haugsven

    Great pick for the Dolphins with Drake. The Seahawks and Drakes teammate Jarran Reeds week 1 opponent.

  258. Old but Slow

    With Reed we have less of a need for a run stuffer. Look for someone who can play the interior of the offensive line.

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      The interior of our D line on base downs is set and good to go now. No one is going to be able to run up the middle and between the tackles on us, assuming everyone stays healthy. The interior of our defense is going to be tough going for any team.

  259. SeventiesHawksFan

    Well one of the TEF o linemen is pretty certain to be there at the bottom of the third. Ervin too. I hope Fackrell lasts that long. Too bad about Bullard and Kaufusi.

    • H M Abdou

      I don’t want Dahl or Haeg.

      Yep, too bad about Bullard and Kaufusi – and Vernon Butler and Bradberry.

    • Steele

      Look out for NE and Fackrell. I have a feeling. He would be a good Ninkovich replacement for them.

  260. bigDhawk

    So many CBs going. We will have an embarrassment of riches at the end of the round.

    • Vapeo

      agreed

  261. Kenny Sloth

    Keivarae Russell is a Raider. Finally the get a decent CB

    • Steele

      Do you think Ken Norton reached for Jihad Ward? He obviously wanted Jihad.

    • Sea Mode

      Chief. Beast to pair him with Peters.

    • Cameron

      Think he was drafted by KC actually

    • Kenny Sloth

      Oops Chiefs.

  262. Steele

    There is a lot of talent to go. But I think edge is almost non-existent (barring surprise sleepers), and DL is very picked over.

    Fingers still crossed for McG/Dahl/Haeg/Coleman but there is plenty of OL still there.

    Prosise and Cajuste would be great somewhere, but I think they need to take care of OL business first. It’s going to be a tight window.

    • bigDhawk

      Fackrell, Coleman, McGovern would be dreamy.

  263. Volume12

    Damn.

    3 of my favorite players in this entire class, go back to back to back.

    KC and Seattle like the same type of DBs.

    • reggieregg

      Russell is a stud for sure!

  264. reggieregg

    Go snag Coleman. Let him battle it out with Ifedi at rt loser plays guard….. HELLO!

    • reggieregg

      Wow I knew it was Coleman time. He’s gonna be a monster.

  265. DC

    Who’s going to love Jarran Reed more than anyone else?

    Seahawks linebackers. JR is gonna keep them clean.

    • reggieregg

      Very good point

    • Producehawk

      No one will love him more.

  266. Kenny Sloth

    Browns taking calls

    • Kenny Sloth

      Dealt second pick to Carolina

  267. Steele

    Wow. Ken Norton goes for Shilique Calhoun!

    • Steele

      I think Norton is going to scare Calhoun into becoming better.

      • reggieregg

        One of the most underrated coaches in the nfl!

  268. Troy

    FUCK! Browns stole another O line from us!! Wish we coulda got Coleman…sigh

    • Steele

      I’m telling ya. It’s getting dangerous now.

  269. Sea Mode

    Can’t believe McGovern made it past Chiefs!

  270. Vapeo

    This draft may very well lead to a flawless season for the Hawks. They are filling needs one by one, with perfect trades, steals, and sleepers. Go HAWKS!

    PS. I love love this blog!
    im new btw

  271. Volume12

    Good for Coleman.

    He fits Cleveland’s style.

    Eventual Joe Thomas replacement.

    • bigDhawk

      Dang, though. Was slobbering over the thought of Ifedi/Coleman at RT/LG.

    • reggieregg

      Cause Coleman is better hands down.

      • Volume12

        Better tape.

        Nowhere near the upside.

  272. CharlieTheUnicorn

    Coleman… gone to Browns

  273. Michael (CLT)

    Man, this is becoming painful

  274. nichansen01

    Wow!

    Fackrell
    Ridgeway
    Hargraves
    Ervin
    Dahl
    Haeg
    (leraven) Clark
    Henry
    Mcgovern
    Howard
    Latham

    All still on the board

    • nichansen01

      Not to mention: Shon Coleman

      • nichansen01

        Scratch that

    • bigDhawk

      With Coleman gone now I’m intrigued with Clark.

  275. bigDhawk

    Wow, Worley goes early. That’s two big CB reaches for the Kitties.

    • Kenny Sloth

      I want Jordan Jenkins now.

    • C-Dog

      Actually like Worley. Not a terrible pick, IMO.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Agreed. Will have plenty of opportunities there

  276. Kenny Sloth

    This is gonna get really tragic for SDB fans

    • Trail Hawk

      Good for Worley. He’s better than most give him credit for.

  277. nichansen01

    No! Not coleman! I wish he had at least gone to a better team.

  278. Sea Mode

    New Clue is up!

    • seaspunj

      What’s the new clue
      Can you cut and paste?

      • Sea Mode

        Just a song from Pandora:
        Michael Jackson
        P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)
        From Thriller

        • Sea Mode

          Who are the youngest prospects we looked at?

          • Kenny Sloth

            Germain

          • Kenny Sloth

            Billings. Easy money

        • sdcoug

          Braxton is awfully “young” and shiny at WR

    • Kenny Sloth

      I can’t watch it ๐Ÿ™

  279. Kenny Sloth

    Maybe teams just hate OT McGovern.

    • seaspunj

      Sdb may have a higher rank on McGovern

      I think we pick him at 94 or 97

  280. C-Dog

    McGovern, Dahl, Ridgeway, Willlie Henry, Kyler Fackrell, and Josh Perry still on board. Please, JS, grab one of these guys.

    • H M Abdou

      McGovern, Fackrell, Tyler Ervin, Boeringer, Brandin Bryant, Nick Vannett

  281. bigDhawk

    Deliciously underwhelming draft for the Patsies so far.

  282. bigDhawk

    JS on the phone…

    • seaspunj

      I hope JS waits and sits on his pick unless it’s to trade down

      • bigDhawk

        No one but Billings I would trade up for at this point.

        • Kenny Sloth

          Ensure McG

  283. glor

    Isaac Seumalo to Philly

  284. Coug1990

    Bills take Adolphus Washington and the Falcons take Austin Hooper

  285. Sea Mode

    On phone NOW!

    • Sea Mode

      Trade chart consulted, WAS pick coming up. Maybe gives ol Scottie a call…

  286. Volume12

    Is the new clue Kyler Fackrell?

    He’s got a baby girl.

    • Lewis

      So did half the guys in the green room

      • rowdy

        Lol that was my thought

    • Kenny Sloth

      True. Really gotta like the guy

      • C-Dog

        Or Joshua Perry, dude’s a beast.

      • Producehawk

        Moving up?

        • Kenny Sloth

          Idk. Maybe for Fack.

      • Sea Mode

        Yes, I was thinking BYU.

  287. John_s

    Braxton Miller, one of McGovern, Dahl, Clark or Westerman and Jordan Jenkins for RD3 please

    • David

      Seconded

  288. Coug1990

    LeRaven Clark was just chosen by the Colts. I am personally happy, as I did not like him.

    • bigDhawk

      Wow, you’re ahead of even my cable TV.

    • Producehawk

      You must be getting the picks earlier than I. I am watching ESPN.

    • sdcoug

      Meeeeee too

  289. bigDhawk

    JS passing out notes!…

  290. Kenny Sloth

    Fuck Colts and jets like Fack

    • Sea Mode

      Jets already got Darren Lee in R1

      • Kenny Sloth

        Lee plays inside for them maybe

  291. nichansen01

    Washington and Seumalo are boring prospects to me.

    • nichansen01

      Hooper another prospect I do not care about.

    • Producehawk

      Glad they were picked leaves better players for us.

  292. Coug1990

    Jets just took Jordan Jenkins, a LB from Georgia. Things are looking good for the Seahawks.

    • jdtjohnson

      dude…hold off, like 2 minutes with the pick announcements. TV is behind what you’re posting

      • troy

        OR you could stop reading until the picks announced?

  293. Michael (CLT)

    Getting close now

    • bigDhawk

      Seven picks to go. Keep taking short CBs, everybody.

  294. Producehawk

    Will Billings drop to us?

    • Coug1990

      Would love to see that.

    • Producehawk

      Or do we want him?

    • bigDhawk

      Redskins on the clock. McCloughan surely can’t pass on him here.

    • C-Dog

      Don’t think Billings would be the next DL after Reed. Think they would go DE/DT or pure 3 tech. I think Billings is probably more of a straight up nose.

  295. sdcoug

    3 picks!!!! OMG. OmG. OMG…

    • Coug1990

      It is like Christmas, but better

    • Producehawk

      Lots to pick from must relax. I tell myself!

  296. Kenny Sloth

    Lee and Jenkins make that a crazy front seven

    • bigDhawk

      Jenkins would have been a nice IRvin replacement but I’ll take Fackrell instead.

  297. Pugs1

    Looks like they are down to one trade card. Might be waiting this one out.

  298. David

    Ok 6 picks to go. Who’s still there for us for our last 3 picks?

  299. Michael M.

    Three picks so close!!

    Was hoping Kaufusi was gonna be there, but as always the Ravens are reading Rob’s blog. And the damn Browns stole Bitonio first and now they grab Shon Coleman. Jerks. Rooting for Coleman though for sure.

    Give me some Kyler Fackrell at #90 and then a double dip on the interior line with McGovern and Dahl!

    • Producehawk

      Yes hoping Coleman has a great career and a long life.

    • C-Dog

      Needs to get past Texans, Packers, Steelers, all 3-4 teams.

    • Steele

      Take McGov over Fack. More important to grab him. Then Dahl.

      If they miss on both, Haeg. Evan Boehm? Jack Allen? Vaitai?

  300. Kenny Sloth

    Nick Vannet could be a tough buck

  301. Coug1990

    Kendall Fuller, a CB from Virginia Tech was chosen by Washington

  302. Coug1990

    By the way, is it bothering people that for the last several picks I have been telling people who has been chosen?

    • rowdy

      No, the sooner the better

    • Producehawk

      Does not bother me. Perhaps stay silent when Seattle picks, but I don’t really care.

    • Michael M.

      Just seems a little pointless. Is anyone relying on this board to see what’s happening?

    • jdtjohnson

      only that it’s 1-2 minutes early compared to NFL Network…but thats just me. I can stop refreshing until the end of the round

    • Sea Mode

      I personally don’t care, but you are a couple minutes ahead of me watching online.

    • troy

      I can only speak for myself but the answer is no way. I can choose not to read your post until after the pick. besides its not like it changes anything. the pick is the pick regardless what source we get it from first. just my 2 cents

    • Vapeo

      No please keep doing I prefer it over waiting!

      The anxiety is too much!!!

      Thx coug!

  303. nichansen01

    Another corner!!!

  304. Coug1990

    Braxton Miller just went to Houston

  305. David

    Man, I didn’t think it was a particularly strong draft for DBs but it seems that is all anyone cares about

    • Producehawk

      Glad we are well set in that regard.

  306. C-Dog

    Fackrell, Perry, McGovern, Dahl, Haeg still on board. Looking more like one of these guys could be a Hawk at 90.

  307. Rory

    What do you think the odds are of us picking Ronald Blair with one of the 3rd rounders?

    • C-Dog

      Possibly. Tapper is still hanging out there, as well.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Love both. Tapper ++

    • 12er

      Decent odds

  308. Troy

    Braxton Miller finally off the board to the Texans

    • C-Dog

      Damn, I had an outside hope for him.

      • sdcoug

        Me too

  310. C-Dog

    Packers and Steelers are the only teams in front of 90 I can see where Fackrell might go.

  311. nichansen01

    Braxton Miller is a texan. I wasn’t as excited about him as others were.

  312. East Side Stevie

    McGovern 90
    Hargrave or Dahl 94

  313. Chris

    Wanting Alex Collins with any of the 3rd round picks. It’s frankly idiotic how little buzz he gets. 2nd best back to Ezekiel, in more than a few ways he’s better.

  314. Old but Slow

    It is actually a pretty class of corners, it is just that there aren’t a lot that meet the Seahawk profile. Worley and Bradberry were attractive, but both have been taken. There are some smaller guys who could play the slot.

  315. Troy

    Steele I remember you being worried about not having a shot at Mcgovern/Dahl/Haeg earlier in the thread, (I HOPE TO FUCK I DONT JINX IT) but looks like we are about to have our pick of the 3! Just two more picks til our run starts!

  316. Producehawk

    Green Bay will probably take billings.

    • Producehawk

      crap they too fackrell

  317. bigDhawk

    hmmm… a Utah State LB goes ahead of Fackrell.

  318. Old but Slow

    *pretty good class*

  319. C-Dog

    Anyone else listening to Hugh Millen on KJR constantly clamoring for a big WR? Good lordy, it’s becoming an annual broken record.

    • Chris

      Only because they keep passing on good ones year after year.

  320. Steve Nelsen

    McGovern, Fackrell, Ervin all still there

    • C-Dog

      As is Dahl, Haeg, Perry, Willie Henry, Ridgeway, Cajuste.

    • H M Abdou

      Holding out hope for all 3!

    • Steve Nelsen

      Scratch Facrell ๐Ÿ™

    • Troy

      Fackrell gone ๐Ÿ™

  321. TannerM

    Vigil is like the anti-Burfict.

  322. Coug1990

    Damn, Fackrell went to GB

    • bigDhawk

      Was just thinking they might do that.

    • C-Dog

      Yup, kinda saw that coming. Joshua Perry is still on board. Add him and Reed to this defense, and the bully is coming back to the PNW.

  323. nichansen01

    Nick Vigil goes before Fackrell!

    • nichansen01

      Nevermind Fackrell went to greenba

    Bullard is still on the board?!! Do we take Bullard, then McGovern, then Ervin? Thoughts?

    • LantermanC

      Bears already took him, he’s gone.

    • Michael M.

      Bullard is gone

    • Kenny Sloth

      He aint

    • C-Dog

      Bullard went to the Bears, gosh dang it.

    • Coug1990

      I would be happy with that

    • Michael M.

      Bears at #72

    • coachmattson

      Oh, sorry. Chicago got Bullard – missed that pick.

      Go Hawks!

    • nichansen01

      Bullard went to Chicago

  326. Michael M.

    Damn Packers

    • Sea Mode

      I don’t think the war room liked that Fackrell pick

  327. Kenny Sloth

    Too obvious.

    • Michael M.

      Was pretty obvious. ‘Hawks must have known that was gonna happen, so I guess they didn’t really want him

  328. bigDhawk

    With Fackrell gone who are the remaining Irvin replacement options?

    • C-Dog

      Joshua Perry and Travis Feeney.

  329. Chris

    Now we find out how well the Hawks have done their homework … Biggest names all gone, we’re now in the grey area where people earn their paychecks.

    • Chris

      Other than Billings of course.

  330. LantermanC

    Feels like every other pick this 3rd round has been a punch to the gut. Kaufusi, Bullard, Coleman, Miller, Fackrell, etc

  331. Producehawk

    Wonder what’s wrong with Billings?

    • Producehawk

      Wow

  332. seaspunj

    Here we go

  333. bigDhawk

    On the clock!!…

  334. C-Dog

    McGovern, Dahl, or Perry, please.
