NFL Draft 2022 — Live Blog — Rounds 2-3

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

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

NO tipping picks in the comments section

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  2. Romeo A57

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

    • Peter

      I figure if Big Mike and TomLPDX hit the willamette, you the clackamas, and me in my irrigation ditch that connects to the santiam we should all be meeting up in roseburg to battle pneumonia and catch the last day of the draft.

      • Palatypus

        There are alligators here. I won’t be jumping in any rivers.

      • Romeo A57

        Since the Willamette River flows north, we will meet at Vantucky ( Vancouver WA)

        • Peter

          Wt flip. It does?

          Thankfuly my river flows the way a river should.😀

        • Drew

          How on earth are Channing Tindall and Leo Chanal still on the board

    • Clackamas River

      You have been selected in my mock draft to jump in me later today.

      • Romeo A57

        LOL

        • Clackamas River

          Don’t worry…I’ll get you in another round. Just you wait and see…….

    • CaptainJack

      sounds refreshing!

    • Simon McInnes

      Those people would not be on a desperate recovery mission after mocking him to someone in round 1, would they?

  3. Old but Slow

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

  4. Coach

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

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

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

    Thoughts?

    Go Hawks!

  5. 12th chuck

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

    • Peter

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

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

  6. Max Morrison

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

  7. SoCal12

    Here we go. These will be the interesting rounds.

    • Peter

      Moreso than yesterday in a lot of ways.

  8. Sea Mode

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

    • Rob Staton

      Cheers all

      Good luck

      • Seahawkwalt

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

      • Mexican Hawk

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

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

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

  9. CaptainJack

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

  10. Scot04

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

    • CaptainJack

      Smokescreen to get atlanta to jump.. . I hope

    • Rob Staton

      Depends who it’s for

      • Scot04

        As long as its not a QB

  11. Sea Mode

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

    • Peter

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

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

  12. SoCal12

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

  13. Wink

    Thoughts on taking Criss Angel with 40/41?

    • Rob Staton

      Looked elusive

    • SoCal12

      Flies to the ball. Plays like he’s on fire sometimes. Can be a bit of a disappearance act sometimes though. Bit of an older prospect.

    • Sea Mode

      Killer spin move.

      • BRNDNvsWRLD

        LOL’d at this

  14. Blitzy the Clown

    And away we go…

    Fingers crossed for a great night for the Seahawks!

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

    • Veryal

      Agree I think it’s Jones here

  15. Malanch

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

  16. Robbie

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

    • Robbie

      Haha I hate my phone! You know what I meant lol

      • Peter

        Had to read it twice. Ha!

        What happened to you and Jurgens? I thought was your ,and my, guy.

        • Robbie

          Oh still my guy!! I meant with one of our 40 picks. But doesn’t matter now, Hall is gone!

  17. Sea Mode

    Huh. Becoming more of a trend across the league?

    Brady Henderson
    @BradyHenderson
    ·1h

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

    • SoCal12

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

    • Peter

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

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

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

      • Peter

        If hutchinson gave the nod i’m feeling better.

        • Blitzy the Clown

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

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

          He’s a good kid. Ridiculously young.

          • pdway

            I know…huge dude, w that baby face. These guys are so young.

  18. CaptainJack

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

  19. Blitzy the Clown

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

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

  20. STTBM

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

    But they need to nail these next two picks.

  21. Seahawkwalt

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Gonna be a WR

      • CaptainJack

        My guess would be pickens

      • Seahawkwalt

        Pierce?

        • Blitzy the Clown

          Watson? Pierce?

    • Trevor

      Gotta be a WR Christian Watson my guess.

    • Sea Mode

      Has to be a WR. Has to.

      Christian Watson fits IMO.

      • CaptainJack

        You are correct. That’s a good fit.

    • Veryal

      They already got a linebacker. My guess is Watson but we shall see! Vikings keep trading back with their division

  22. DC

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

  23. Blitzy the Clown

    Great pick for GB. Fantastic pick. Damn

  24. SoCal12

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

  25. Sea Mode

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

  26. CaptainJack

    Hopefully Ridder goes here

  27. Seahawkwalt

    Vikings are stupid to trade with the Green Bay Packers

  28. Trevor

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

  29. CaptainJack

    Wow… qbs really fallin down down down.

    • Peter

      Cause it’s very hard to win with mediocre.

    • SoCal12

      Round 3 grades are looking true. Would we be okay with using a Round 3 on a QB? I’d much prefer next years draft, but if the grade matches I wouldn’t be that upset.

      • Peter

        True. One in the third. Okay for me.

        • Ketch

          I’d be happy with Sam Howell

  30. Sten

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

  31. Peter

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

  32. Trevor

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Agreed. Best draft haul so far.

    • Sea Mode

      Hey, were there any Canadian prospects you have been watching this year?

  33. Seattle Person

    Jets are killing it!

    • Big Mike

      Indeed

      • Scot04

        Yeah they are

    • Big Mike

      They’re gonna need Zack Wilson to step up and if so they got a chance to be pretty damn good

  34. CaptainJack

    No one wants willis

  35. Blitzy the Clown

    Houston seriously rebuilding their defensive secondary between Stingley and Pitre.

  36. Sea Mode

    Does ATL take a QB here?

    • Peter

      Ridder here makes sense.

  37. Big Mike

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

    • Peter

      So the ravens have plenty of options is what you’re saying?

      • Big Mike

        😀

  38. Seahawkwalt

    The second round is falling really well for us

    • Seahawkwalt

      Please falcons, take Ridder

  39. Scot04

    Atlanta moves up ahead of us. QB?

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      I think its a QB too

    • Blitzy the Clown

      I sincerely hope so

      • Seahawkwalt

        Yes…

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Sadly I think it will be Mafe

    • HOUSE

      That’s my thought… Who else could they be trying to get?

  40. Wink

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

    • Peter

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

    • HOUSE

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

  41. Sea Mode

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

  42. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • Sea Mode

      QB pick and we overload Rob himself…

    • Big Mike

      🙂

    • Rob Staton

      That was… a crazy 10 mins

  43. Scot04

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

  44. SoCal12

    No rush for QBs as pundits were hyping.

  45. HOUSE

    We’re on the clock…

  46. Seahawkwalt

    Crap.. liked Ebiketie

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      Me too. He’s a good one!

  47. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • HOUSE

      My thoughts too. Chicago got pick in quick

    • CaptainJack

      Yup. i’m meh on him

  48. SoCal12

    I feel like Nakobe would be a very Pete Carroll pick

  49. pdway

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Not that I recall

      it is pretty giddy, isn’t it?

  50. Big Mike

    Yo Pete/John. NO QB!!

  51. KennyBadger

    Wow plenty of options left – trade back?

    • CaptainJack

      i’d rather stand pat and take two players you like.

  52. Ukhawk

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

  53. Old Timer

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

    • Old Timer

      Bummer

  54. Blitzy the Clown

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

    What’s your hope?

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Forgot to include Jones.

    • Group Captain Mandrake

      I’d like them to grab another OL, DE or LB (big fan of Tindall) with the next two picks.

  55. Scot04

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

  56. Veryal

    Lucas and a small trade down here please

  57. Gaux Hawks

    …pick of the litter, and take two!

  58. CaptainJack

    Good for Kyler.

  59. Blitzy the Clown

    Solid pick for da Bears.

  60. Ben Ft. Worth

    NOOOOOOO!!!! Not Gordon!

    • Hawkdawg

      Bummed…

  61. KD

    Jurgens please!

    • Big Mike

      Or Lucas or Mafe

      • Peter

        Or tindall

  62. Palatypus

    Prepare to suffer.

    Carpe Inconcinnus!

  63. cha

    Seahawks will let the clock run out just for fun.

    • cha

      Or not

  64. Ben Ft. Worth

    Travis Jones
    Lucas
    Jurgens
    Booth
    Walker
    Tindall
    Anderson

  65. 206

    ESPN won’t shut the fuck up about QBs

  66. CaptainJack

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

  67. Blitzy the Clown

    Not bad. Not bad at all.

  68. Ulsterman

    Mafe, nice pick

  69. SoCal12

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

  70. dand393

    Yes mafe

  71. Hawkster

    Yes !!!

  72. Blitzy the Clown

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

  73. pdway

    there’s our edge pick

  74. KD

    Mafe! I like it! Good pick

    • STTBM

      Ahem…..dude, you’re tipping picks! No bueno!

      But YES YES YES!

      • Rob Staton

        Yep — strictly NO tipping picks

  75. Hawkdawg

    Hot damn!!

  76. Ben Ft. Worth

    YESSSSSSSS!!!!
    YES!!!
    YES!!!!
    YAAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!

  77. Group Captain Mandrake

    Nice pick by the Hawks. I like it.

  78. Boye Mafia

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssss !!!!!!!!

  79. Peter

    That’ll do pc/js, that’ll do…

  80. TomLPDX

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

    • Big Mike

      Yep

  81. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • Rob Staton

      He measured 33 inches at pro-day

  82. bmseattle

    thank goodness

  83. Jabroni-DC

    LOVE #41!!!

  84. Blitzy the Clown

    Was hoping for Lucas, but ok.

    Btw, for me Mafe >>> Williams

  85. CaptainJack

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

  86. dand393

    Wow so excited for walker love these 2 picks

  87. TomLPDX

    Kennith Walker…WOW!

  88. Hawkster

    actually going to take two picks in a row??

  89. Big Mike

    2 just outstanding pics in a row!

    • Peter

      💯

    • Brett in AZ

      Amen!

    • TomLPDX

      YES!!!

  90. KD

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

  91. Blitzy the Clown

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

  92. SoCal12

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

  93. Robbie

    Oh I’m hyped!!!!!!!!!

  94. Ulsterman

    Just glad no QB

    • Blitzy the Clown

      IKR 😂

    • Sea Mode

      Yup

  95. Blitzy the Clown

    Cross
    Mafe
    Walker II

    Not bad Seattle. Not bad at all.

  96. Sea Mode

    I like the picks!

  97. Rokas

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

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

      • Rokas

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

  98. pdway

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

    seems like two impact guys for us right there

  99. ShowMeYourHawk

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

  100. Sneekes

    Such a relief that, two decent picks.

  101. Group Captain Mandrake

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

    • Hawkdawg

      Maybe. And/or a hedge against losing Penny….

    • Tecmo Bowl

      Looks like Carson is done. Same neck injury that got Kam I believe. Hate to see it.

      Penny and Walker are gonna be fun!!!

  102. Mark H

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

  103. KennyBadger

    I like foundation building. Will Levis at 72?

  104. Hawkster

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

    I have not googled a pick yet :))

    • Peter

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

  105. Peter

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

    Love these picks but still room to get more excited.

  106. Canadian Hawk

    Fantastic picks.

    Well done JS/PC.

    Linebacker or CB next please.

  107. Trevor

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

    • Peter

      Still a chance. Lucas or Jurgens. One may last.

  108. JLemere

    Will Cam Jurgens last to pick #72?

    • HawksGal

      I wish, don’t think so.

  109. Henry Taylor

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

    • Henry Taylor

      And no QB

  110. Allen M.

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

    • Allen M.

      *mocked

      • unHappy Hawk

        ?

  111. Jabroni-DC

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

    Not to mention getting a pick correct.

  112. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • SoCal12

      Same. If you told me before the draft we’d get Cross, Boye, and Walker I’d be pumped.

    • Group Captain Mandrake

      I’m good so far. My big issue is that Rob digs deep into all these guys and I end up wanting them all.

    • mtpgod

      Hells yea.

  113. HawksGal

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

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

    Go Hawks!

    • dand393

      I’m really hoping for a LB

      • HawksGal

        Troy Anderson might fall to us.

        • STTBM

          I’d love that. I live in Montana, love the kid. I’d also like to get Tindall…

  114. STTBM

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

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

    • Group Captain Mandrake

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

  115. pdway

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

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

  116. Scot04

    Hard not to like this. Drew Lock liking it.

  117. Gross MaToast

    Alright, those were really good picks.

  118. God of Thunder

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

    • STTBM

      Walker is 5′-9″….

    • Brik

      Walker is 5-9

  119. MoBo

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

  120. STTBM

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

  121. Trevor

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

  122. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • HawksGal

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

  123. Poli

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

    • Scot04

      I was definitely surprised to see them go RB at 41.

  124. Rob Staton

    I’d try and trade back into R2

    So much talent out there

    • Blitzy the Clown

      For?

      Me – Tindall

    • HawkFan907

      There has to be a run on QBs coming… right???

      Also a run on LBs…

      Zach Tom, Cam Jurgens, or Channing Tindall could fall to us.

    • mtpgod

      For who in your opinion?

    • Brett in AZ

      Was thinking the same thing. Didn’t PC make an offhand comment about moving out-year picks if necessary this year in one of the recent interviews?

      • BRNDNvsWRLD

        I think this may have been more in relation to the “Almost trade up to #6”.

  125. SoCal12

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

  126. Blitzy the Clown

    The draft is getting a little Vegas 😂

  127. Sea Mode

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

    • Starhawk29

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

  128. CaptainJack

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

    • Felipe

      You just realized Carson is done?

  129. 740i

    JS needs to start working the phones and trade up

  130. DavidinBellingham

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

  131. Seattle Person

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

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

  132. Ishmael

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

  133. Blitzy the Clown

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

  134. SoCal12

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

    • Seattle Person

      Word…

  135. MattyB

    Great picks…

  136. Jabroni-DC

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

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

    • Ketch

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

  137. pdway

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

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

    • Jordan

      Plus the 21 year old left tackle.

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

  138. cha

    Seahawks Twitter is crying salty tears right now.

    “We don’t need a running back!”

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

      They just need to sit tight until post June 1 when Carson gets cut.

    • STTBM

      Lol!

    • Sea Mode

      Is “Seahawks Twitter” just Evan Hill making a lot of noise?

      Honest question, I don’t see any of them. (nor do I care to)

    • Big Mike

      Yeah cuz the 9ers got to the NFCCG with Jimmy freaking G by not running the football
      Idiots

    • Poli

      I’m crying a bit about a RB too. Booth or Travis Jones would’ve been sweet

  139. Montanamike

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

  140. Sea Mode

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

    • Big Mike

      Not a bad call

  141. GoHawksDani

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

  142. Ishmael

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

    • Big Mike

      Not a bad call

  143. Mark

    Ravens prob grab Ojabo with their pick

  144. Hawkdawg

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

    • Big Mike

      Rush ALWAYS looked good. Great fucking band!

      🙂

    • Blitzy the Clown

      I’ll try…

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

    • Seattle Person

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

  145. GoHawksDani

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

  146. chet380

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

    • Matthew

      This is it. You’re in the right place.

      • chet380

        thx, bud

    • Big Mike

      you found it

    • Sea Mode

      Indeed, this is it. Welcome.

    • mtpgod

      Welcome To The Terrordome.

  147. seaspunj

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

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

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

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

      • seaspunj

        it’s been done right now with the Browns with Chubb and Hunt

    • seaspunj

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

  148. CaptainJack

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

  149. Jordan

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

  150. TomLPDX

    Ravens…amazing. Ojabo

    • Big Mike

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

      • CaptainJack

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

      • pdway

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

        • God of Thunder

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

  151. CaptainJack

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

  152. Blitzy the Clown

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

  153. AlaskaHawk

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

  154. CaptainJack

    Paschal to Detroit… great player, a tad early.

    I really thought they could take Willis.

  155. Bankhawk

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

    • Tim

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

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

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

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

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

  156. MontanaMike

    We already have 2 backup QB’s

    • God of Thunder

      We have three back ups!

  157. Sea Mode

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

  158. Scot04

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

  159. Jabroni-DC

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

    Just sayin…

    • Big Mike

      I predicted this mornig we’d take him because he can play all the o-line positions and Hawks love O-linemen that can do so.

      • Jabroni-DC

        He would be a hell of a pickup. Swiss army knife.

        • God of Thunder

          Then he can replace Blythe, eventually.

  160. Hawkster

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

    • JimN

      Spot on Hawkster. Patience

  161. Hawkster

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

  162. Blitzy the Clown

    Pretty shocked Mathis went before Jones. More like gobsmacked.

    • Big Mike

      Yeah what is the deal with Jones? Rob, any idea? Anyone?

    • Seattle Person

      Honestly…it’s a shame him and Abe Lucas is still on the board.

    • GoHawks5151

      Lots of senior bowl darlings dropping. Jones, Mafe… Recent bias.

  163. JimN

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

  164. CaptainJack

    Phidarian Mathis is a name I am not familiar with.

    I wonder why Travis Jones is falling…

    • STTBM

      I believe Seattle brought Mathis in for a visit…

  165. SoCal12

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

    • JD

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

      • Jabroni-DC

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

        Damone Clark in the 4th round?

    • Jordan

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

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

      • JD

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

  166. Blitzy the Clown

    Da Bears have made two solid picks so far

    • Big Mike

      Their young QB needs help tho too.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Well there are several good WRs still available, as are both top TEs Dulcich and McBride

  167. Jabroni-DC

    Is Rob on a live broadcast somewhere?

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

  168. Ryan

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

    • Jordan

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

  169. Brik

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

  170. Henry Taylor

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

    • Sea Mode

      Not weird at all.

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

      • Henry Taylor

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

    • SoCal12

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

    • Big Mike

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

    • Bankhawk

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

  171. Sea Mode

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

    • GoHawksDani

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

    • Kyle

      Barry Sanders was also really soft spoken.

  172. Rob Staton

    Chris Simms loved Kenneth Walker BTW

    Worth watching his review of the player:

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

    • dand393

      I watched his top 5 RBs and he had walker at 1

      • Big Mike

        Very cool. I put more stock in Simms than most other talking heads. Much respect for him.

      • Hawkster

        Simms is going to wet himself over the SEA draft He was big on Mafe, Cross, and Walker. Pick up Butlr and he’d lose it.

        • Hawkster

          Butler

    • SoCal12

      Walker is a real Simms kind of guy. Tough guy who can take over games. That seems to be what Chris looks for the most. Guys who get in the pile and grind every snap.

  173. Bankhawk

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

  174. Ashish

    Double dip on OT Lucas tradeup ?

    • Sea Mode

      If he lasts to the top of R3 where just one of our R5 picks is enough to move up, then absolutely!

      • Sea Mode

        Pick 63-64 per the chart

  175. Derek

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

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

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

    Inject that irony straight into my veins.

    Cheers!

    • Big Mike

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

  176. JimN

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

    • Sea Mode

      I thought there were multiple trades, half of them involving the Vikings.

    • Brett in AZ

      For as fast as they put those picks in, it felt like they really wanted those two guys.

  177. Seattle Person

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

  178. Tim M.

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

    • Sea Mode

      Scroll up in the comments. Rob posted Chris Simms’ analysis and further up I posted highlights.

    • Silly Billy

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUIZWZH7OtI

      these 2-minute drill videos are great.

    • GoHawksDani

      I watched this highlights video:
      https://youtu.be/Eq3rdjfQQrU

      Can’t give straight up comp. Has a pinch of Lynch to his balance (although not as good, but faster guy). Has that breaking out big runs possibility than Penny. Pretty athletic and has good numbers. More of a fast/quick guy than a punisher, but not afraid of contact and fights for yards

    • Bankhawk

      Walker is ‘A Boss!’

  179. GoHawksDani

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

  180. DAVID JOAQUIN

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

    just watch him Vs Vaunted Mich

  181. Nick L

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

  182. Silly Billy

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

  183. Romeo A57

    We would like to thank Robert Kraft for his support of the Happy Time Massage Parlor.

    • Big Mike

      DeShaun Watson doesn’t like your post

      • Jabroni-DC

        If Watson had checked in with Kraft on where to go for a ‘special’ massage everyone would have been better off for it.

    • IHeartTacoma

      Man, that story got buried didn’t it. Pays to be a rich guy.

  184. Blitzy the Clown

    I see New England has replaced Seattle as the WTF franchise this year.

    • Hawkster

      Thought TT was a very Seahawky pick. Freaky Fast, perhaps fragile, unique player.

  185. Sneekes

    I always get nervous for the ‘Make a Wish’ kids, but that Pats guy absolutely nailed it.

  186. Glor

    Guy kind of looks like Paul Richardson.. he didn’t hold up to great

  187. Sea Mode

    I can’t believe Travis Jones is still on the board.

    • Big Mike

      A medical we don’t know about?

      • Sea Mode

        Or just teams don’t think he can rush the passer I guess. DT devalued unless they can play 3 downs.

  188. Rob Staton

    Video reaction to Seattle’s two picks now live:

    https://youtu.be/yTsWVLhzwvE

    • Jabroni-DC

      Cool shirt!

    • TomLPDX

      Great stuff, Rob!

  189. Big Mike

    Damn there goes Jurgens

    • CaptainJack

      This is why I don’t like the walker pick.

      Yeah he’s a fun running back. But who the hell is going to block for him? Blythe ? yuck..

    • Big Mike

      Eagles got AJ Brown, Jordan Davis and Cam Jurgens. A+ draft with the trade

      • Scot04

        100% agree Big Mike

    • STTBM

      Great pick by Philly, bet they are ecstatic in the front office….

  190. Sea Mode

    Really enjoyed your reaction video, Rob. Great to see you energized!

    Btw, looks like it will be interesting for you to invite Joe Fann back on for a stream…

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

    • Big Mike

      That could be spicy 🙂

  191. Sten

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

  192. samprassultanofswat

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

  193. Brik

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

    • Brik

      Picks were good but I was really hoping for a CB. Booth was right there. Looks like PC thinks he can work his magic still.

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      Maybe Seahawks move up to back of Rd 2 for their guy

  194. Ben Ft. Worth

    Zach Tom
    Troy Anderson
    Abraham Lucas
    Tindall
    Chenall
    Jones

    Plenty of options left with 22 picks to go

    • Seattle Person

      This is nuts…The middle rounds are going to be a lot of fun. So many starters to be had.

    • Madmark

      Need Andersen or Tidwell at LB at 72

      • STTBM

        Love to get Andersen, also Tindall and Lucas still available…

    • Coach

      Really hoping we can get Tindall at 72! As Rob said, you can’t go wrong with these Georgia defenders!

      Go Hawks!

  195. Sea Mode

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

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      Dee Eskridge with tremendous value.

    • WallaSean

      The Jackpot is 100 million(over 4 years)

    • SoCal12

      The story of the offseason has got to be the WR market. It’s starting to become QB2 where most teams are praying the draft get a good rookie deal for them otherwise you’re spending $30 million on one.

  196. pdway

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

    • Brik

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

      • pdway

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

        • Brik

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

    • mtpgod

      Still much better than resigning Kirk for starting qb money.

  197. Sea Mode

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

    • Big Mike

      Sucks for us Hawk fans. Best TE in the draft supposedly

  198. SoCal12

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

    • God of Thunder

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

  199. Troy

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

    • TomLPDX

      Really is!

  200. Rokas

    Of course Dallas always gets the bad boys…

  201. Sea Mode

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

  202. Gary

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

    • CaptainJack

      Nope because Pocic is in cleveland

      • Gary

        Fine, so Kyle Fuller then?

        • pmoney

          I feel like if you’re going to be salty about the roster you should at least know who’s on it…

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Dude Pocic plays for the Browns

  203. CaptainJack

    I’d trade up here for Travis Jones here

  204. Blitzy the Clown

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

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

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

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

    • Big Mike

      Beast was both my friend, but I get your point.

  205. Sea Mode

    Another big fan:

    Brock Huard
    @BrockHuard
    ·1h

    YES!!!

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

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

  206. Big Mike

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

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

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

    • Tbone

      Ditto! He will be around a long time!

    • STTBM

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

  207. Rob Staton

    Feel like I/we nailed the QB eval this year

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

    • Sea Mode

      👏

    • TomLPDX

      I’m still ok with taking a flier tomorrow on Corral! 😉

  208. Sea Mode

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

    • Seattle Person

      I think it’s crazy how pretty much all of the LBs are still there.

  209. Bankhawk

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

    • ska

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

  210. Rob Staton

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

    • God of Thunder

      Lol, he’s talking to the chef about cooking up some crow.

    • bmseattle

      Are you saying that all the trolls don’t come back and eat crow when you are proved correct????

      • Sean

        I’m right here…I don’t hide from my takes, good or bad 🙂

    • Big Mike

      Commiserating with the idiot on Seahawks Twatter?

      • Blitzy the Clown

        We call them ‘conversationally challenged’ now

    • Sean

      Just ate my crow for dinner, washing it down with a few beers now. Excellent call Rob, I cannot believe he is still available.

      • Rob Staton

        Kudos for being a good sport about it

  211. Sea Mode

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

    • Hawkster

      The 145 could move the 72 about 6 spots?

      • Sea Mode

        8-9 spots. By the chart, we could move up to 63-64.

  212. Sea Mode

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

  213. Trevor

    Hawks Big Board Day 2 best remaining after pick 60

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

    • Peter

      A lot of good names still to be had.

    • Hawkster

      I gotta add Taylor-Britt to that.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        D’oh!

  214. Hawk Mock

    Hoping Lucas or Tindall

  215. Henry Taylor

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

    • God of Thunder

      lol!

      • God of Thunder

        Andersen is the top ranked and the bottom ranked gadget player in the draft

    • Sneekes

      Cap doffed

    • Big Mike

      Well played Henry

    • Sea Mode

      😁👌

  216. God of Thunder

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

  217. Mark

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

  218. CaptainJack

    haha

    cincy trying to snipe a guy they think shannahan likes?

  219. Sea Mode

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

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

    • SoCal12

      Honestly wait til the board falls to us. So many guys with similar grades in that range.

    • Nick

      I feel like if you think Channing Tindall is a top 50 player you move up.

  220. mtpgod

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

  221. STTBM

    Lol, good one!

  222. Jordan

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

    … And here come the off ball lbers

  223. Peter

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

  224. Hawkster

    ouch

  225. Blitzy the Clown

    Damn Cincy defense gonna be fierce next year

    • TomLPDX

      That was a good pick

      • Big Mike

        Couple people here liked him a lot.

        • Hawkster

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

          • Seattle Person

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

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

    • Sea Mode

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

  226. chet380

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

    • Peter

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

  227. Veryal

    Let’s gets Tindall or Lucas!!!

  228. Sea Mode

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

    • 206

      Would you look at that. Lol! Lets see if Trey Lance is worth what they paid

  229. Nick

    Speaking Tindall into existence.

  230. Peter

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

    • Big Mike

      Seahawks Twatter doesn’t like your opinion.

      • Peter

        Big mike. When one of the snarkiest people on this site is defending Lock….me btw…it’s time for seahawks twatter to drop the qb talk.

  231. Blitzy the Clown

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

  232. Big Mike

    Tindall would be a Georgia D player. We need one

  233. HawksGal

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

    • Big Mike

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

      • HawksGal

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

    • Jabroni-DC

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

  234. CaptainJack

    Meh pick by the 49ers

  235. Sea Mode

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

    Go get Abe Lucas or Tindall.

    • Sea Mode

      Meh, never mind. They still have 9 picks this year even after the Russ trade.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Tindall please. I like Lucas a lot but Tindall has much rarer playing attributes.

      • Sea Mode

        He truly is one of the freak athletes on defense in this draft.

  236. Bobby54

    I hate Drake going to the Niners

  237. Peter

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

    • SoCal12

      I do feel bad for these QBs though. It’s not their fault the media hyped these kids up for ratings, and now it’s just awkward for them to be there.

      • Peter

        Same

        • Hawks4life

          Feel bad… they’ll still make millions, although I do hate the media these guys need to be realistic with themselves and thier abilities

  238. Sea Mode

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

    Jeff Simmons
    @realjeffsimmons
    ·1h

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

    • bmseattle

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

      • Big Mike

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

        • bmseattle

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

    • Seattle Person

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

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

    • Poli

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

      • Peter

        Carson is probably done

        • TomLPDX

          That was my thought

    • Jabroni-DC

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

    • mtpgod

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

      • Chase

        Agree

  239. Peter

    Good for Cook. Real solid player.

    • Seattle Person

      Is he sad? Overcome? That is a face you usually don’t see after you just got drafted.

      • Big Mike

        Looks a little overwhelmed to me

      • 206

        Classic example of a man who does not know how to show his emotions.

  240. awm

    Trade UO! Trade UP! Abe Lucas.

  241. DC

    Maybe he hates snow

  242. Big Mike

    Simms had Bonnito in his top 5 EDGE guys

  243. SoCal12

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

  244. Blitzy the Clown

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

  245. Brad Drinkwine

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

  246. Jordan

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

  247. Trevor

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

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

    • DC

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

    • Veryal

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

    • Big Mike

      Would LOVE it. He’s a Coug

      • DC

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

    • MarkinSeattle

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

  248. Ben Ft. Worth

    Lucas or Tindall???

  249. Rob Staton

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

    NFL — all but Pickett available in R3

    • JimN

      Ya think Pittsburgh have second thoughts?

      • Sea Mode

        Highly likely. They probably thought they were getting ahead of the “run” on QBs that was going to happen in the 20s.

  250. ShowMeYourHawk

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

    *end rant*

    • Big Mike

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

    • STTBM

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

  251. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • Rob Staton

      Round three would be a perfectly acceptable range to take him

      • bmseattle

        would still rather have Lucas or Tindall, tho.

        • Big Mike

          Ditto

          • Ben Ft. Worth

            Yeah but which one? Lucas? Or Tindall?

            • bmseattle

              So tough!

              I’d say Lucas, just because OT is a more difficult/expensive position to fill.

            • BRNDNvsWRLD

              Yes.

        • mtpgod

          100. Lucas/Tindall/Chanel in 3rd too enticing, pls take a need and roll with Lock.

      • Jabroni-DC

        The 3rd round has been pretty good to this regime for the QB position.

      • Dan Vandenbroek

        Acceptable, maybe. With so many holes to fill and so much talent still available at 72, would really not want QB here. Of LB or CB, which group most likely to have most value at 109?

  252. Jabroni-DC

    Leaning OL with this pick.

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

  253. Blitzy the Clown

    Here go the LBs

  254. Poli

    Travis Jones in the 3rd would be great

  255. DC

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

  256. Dan Vandenbroek

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

  257. ShowMeYourHawk

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

    Who does everyone else have on their hit list?

    • Sea Mode

      Abe Lucas, Travis Jones

      • Big Mike

        Lucas first for me. Coug

      • Jabroni-DC

        Tom, Corral, Lucas

      • Thomas Wells

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

        • Thomas Wells

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

    • WallaSean

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

  258. Bankhawk

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

  259. Ben Ft. Worth

    THE MIZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!

  260. Sea Mode

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

  261. KennyBadger

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

  262. Sea Mode

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

    • Big Mike

      That’d be great

  263. Big Mike

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

    • Robbie

      😂😂😂 I’m dead

  264. Blitzy the Clown

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

  265. Jabroni-DC

    So many great prospects left! 2 to go.

  266. DC

    Poor JAX fans. Solid player but they have other needs

  267. Big Mike

    Gotta be a LB for u, right?

  268. Tecmo Bowl

    Dean, Chenal, Jones

    Lucas, Tom

  269. Luca Brasi

    Give me Travis Jones!!

    • Luca Brasi

      All about the trenches. Lucas great, too. No QBs!!

  270. Scot04

    Lucas, Tindall, Jones

  271. Coach

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

  272. Ben Ft. Worth

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

  273. TrenchWarfare

    Holy #$#$%!

    OL is set.

  274. seaspunj

    gotta be hyped

    Seahawks next!

    I hope we go for Lucas or Tindall

    I think QBs will fall to 4th

  275. HOUSE

    On the clock… who we taking?

  276. Sea Mode

    Holy cow, they’re all available to us.

    Travis Jones
    Channing Tindall
    Abe Lucas

  277. ShowMeYourHawk

    ON THE CLOCK!!!

    Here we go!

    Gimme a stud!

    No QBs!

  278. Blitzy the Clown

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

    • seaspunj

      100% agree

  279. TomLPDX

    Seahawks on the clock. Time for a commercial.

    • Big Mike

      Great minds and all that my friend

  280. Big Mike

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

  281. MarkinSeattle

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

  282. bmseattle

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

    • Scot04

      Lucas would be huge here

  283. Jabroni-DC

    Russ was selected at #75.

    • Glor

      But Russ had really good accuracy numbers and a big arm

  284. Magmatizer

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

  285. Jabroni-DC

    FUCK Yah!!!

    What a draft!!

    • Jabroni-DC

      Best draft since 2012!

      • Big Mike

        Hasn’t been on NFLN yet??

  286. SoCal12

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

  287. DC

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

    • Martinb

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

  288. Dan Y

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

  289. bmseattle

    Hell yes!

  290. Trevor

    Yesssssss!

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

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

    • Big Mike

      ‘Bout damned time

      • bmseattle

        Why do I feel so happy?

  291. seaspunj

    YEAH BABY

  292. Big Mike

    Couuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuug!!!!

  293. Blitzy the Clown

    YES!

  294. TomLPDX

    YES! WOW!

    • TomLPDX

      Cool that Shaquem did the call.

      • Big Mike

        concur

  295. Blitzy the Clown

    One helluva draft!

  296. seaspunj

    Best day 2 draft EVER

    I AM SO RELIEVED

  297. pdway

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

  298. Thomas Wells

    WHAT A DRAFT!!!

  299. BA

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

  300. KD

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

  301. Tbone

    Gonna be a great line next year!

  302. Dan Vandenbroek

    Well Done!! Yes!

  303. Sea Mode

    Let’s GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  304. Ben Ft. Worth

    YEAH BABYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

    LET’S GO!!!!!!!!

  305. bmseattle

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

  306. Mark

    A+. Loving this draft. Let’s go!

  307. Hawkdawg

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

    • SoCal12

      They started reading seahawksdraftblog that’s what happened.

    • DC

      JS is calling the shots?

      • Sea Mode

        Methinks yes. Starting with moving on from Russ and then not getting cute in the draft.

      • Martinb

        Yes! Has to be.

  308. Brett in AZ

    Home-effin-Run!

  309. GoHawksDani

    Without tipping the pick…SDB will be happy 😀

  310. Blitzy the Clown

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

    We have our bookends for the next 5 years.

  311. DC

    Robs description of the pick is the best lol.

  312. Group captain mandrake

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

    • Sea Mode

      Incredible if they pan out.

  313. Ishmael

    I feel like crying. What a draft.

    • bmseattle

      No kidding.
      I’m irrationally emotional about this pick.

  314. ShowMeYourHawk

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

  315. Trevor

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

    A+ draft

  316. Gross MaToast

    I can’t believe what I’m seeing.

  317. Scot04

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

  318. Robbie

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

  319. Henry Taylor

    Best pick of the draft???

  320. Peter

    Jumping john and joseph

    Unbelievable

  321. seaspunj

    sweet Ridder is off the board!

  322. pdway

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

  323. TomLPDX

    Is there a center in the 4th round?

    • Big Mike

      Maybe Zack Tom, but I think Blythe holds down the fort for one year and they get one next year. I see a LB next pick.

  324. Hawk Scott

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

  325. Blitzy the Clown

    I’m lmfao here

    You go ATL!

  326. KennyBadger

    We don’t need no stinking tackles!

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

  327. Big Mike

    We’ll still get a quality LB next pick.

  328. awm

    Goose bumps!!! Best draft EVER

  329. Tecmo Bowl

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

  330. Hawk Mock

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

    • seaspunj

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

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

      just stay patient and draft a QB next draft!

  331. Scot04

    Rob, Love the double fist puch

  332. Bobby54

    Wow, we actually did it. Amazing

  333. Seahawkwalt

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

    • bmseattle

      …or the new coaching staff has more input?

  334. Jabroni-DC

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

  335. AlaskaHawk

    Time to celebrate !!!

  336. lil’stink

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

    • Scot04

      Could be Gabe Jackson & Carson.

      • HOUSE

        I have a feeling Jackson is out the door. Carson will be probably be an injury designation

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Magic 8 ball says ‘signs point to yes’

    • mtpgod

      Hell yea, If Haynes can stay healthy, he will surprise, trade Jackson for a late 7th.

      • lil’stink

        I hope JS is trying to package a 5th our our 4th right now as we speak to move up and grab Tindall

  337. Isaac

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

  338. Hawkster

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

    A complete failure to suck.

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

    • bmseattle

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

  339. seaspunj

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

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

  340. Sea Mode

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

      It really is.

      Anti-PAC12 bias?

  341. DC

    Hopefully a starting LB is there in the 4th.

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

  342. Bobby54

    Baker will have time throw

    • Brett in AZ

      LOL 🙂

  343. JD

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

  344. Blitzy the Clown

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

    Speaking of which, Lucas should quiet the Walker malcontents

    • TomLPDX

      Honestly can’t remember Blitzy. This has been an awesome day 2.

    • Hawkster

      Yup Almost like they let the draft come to them.

  345. KSB

    Day 2 looks great!!

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

    • TomLPDX

      If only! Would love that.

  346. Leo

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

  347. Seahawk_Dan

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

    • 206

      Right? They don’t stop pressin about the QBs. Let it rest.

  348. L80

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

  349. AlaskaHawk

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

  350. HawksGal

    OMG!

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

    Woohoo….Go Hawks!

  351. mtpgod

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

  352. GoHawksDani

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

    • Scot04

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

  353. Vin

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

  354. B-Wags

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

  355. CASE

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

  356. Madmark

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

    • Big Mike

      Nope, Cross will start at LT, Lucas at RT. The positions they played in college.
      There will be growing pains for both.

      • Hawkster

        So not Cross at TE and Lucas as 3-tech??

    • mtpgod

      What? Lucas RT, Cross LT, it’s a wrap.

      • Madmark

        Open competition have you no idea what this team is all about.

        • Madmark

          Lucas I’m betting wins.

        • Scot04

          Competition will be between Lucas & Curhan for RT. Cross & Forsythe for LT.
          Will be Cross & Lucas’s jobs to lose. Can’t foresee them not winning those jobs outright.

  357. Big Mike

    Of course the Ravens got Jones

    • Sea Mode

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

  358. Blitzy the Clown

    Bloody brilliant draft for the Ravens

    • Big Mike

      Sure has been

    • Brett in AZ

      Those guys are really something.

      Literally every pick: “This is SUCH a Ravens pick.”

      • Blitzy the Clown

        So we’re agreed then. Year in and year out, Baltimore is the most consistently excellent drafting organization in the NFL.

  359. SpennyDunks

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

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

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

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

    Man, Ravens just KILLING IT!

    • Cheese22

      It seems like I’ve said that every year since Ozzie Newsome became their GM.

  361. Eric

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

  362. Leo

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

  363. Kyle R

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

  364. Blitzy the Clown

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

  365. Hawkster

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

  366. Tecmo Bowl

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

    109+153=44
    91=44

    • Sea Mode

      Yes pls. For Tindall.

      Our R4 +R5 could get us up to #89 according to the chart.

  367. STTBM

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

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

  368. samprassultanofswat

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

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

  369. KennyBadger

    Ravens FO bogarts SDB.

  370. KSB

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

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

    • Hawks4life

      What???

    • 206

      Thats way high in my opinion

    • Jordan

      Can’t part with anything from 2023 – they’ll be positioning/competing for their QB

    • Sea Mode

      Our R4 +R5 could get us up to #89 according to the chart.

      Let’s not trade any future picks. Next year we need a QB.

    • Glor

      That is insane

  371. Jordan

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

  372. Group captain mandrake

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

  373. ShowMeYourHawk

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

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

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

    • HOUSE

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

  374. samprassultanofswat

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

    BONUS: No WASTED pick on a QB.

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

    I want to see what Drew Lock can do.

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

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

    • Sea Mode

      Exactly. Russ leaves, we draft bookend tackles (hopefully) and a stud RB.

      • Group captain mandrake

        It makes me wonder if Pete and John really didn’t like Russ. They waited til he was gone to go all in on the OL. That would be kind of funny in a passive aggressive sort of way.

  375. Rob Staton

    Quick instant reaction video to the Abe Lucas pick:

    https://youtu.be/VQQUsuo_2ik

    • Blitzy the Clown

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

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

      • Sea Mode

        Indeed. I feel it too as it’s currently 4:27 am!

        • Blitzy the Clown

          That’s right you freakin hardcore Eurohawks I salute you!

  376. Sea Mode

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

  377. Veryal

    Too bad Russ doesn’t use his TEs

    • Thomas Wells

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

  378. Mark

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

    • Thomas Wells

      I go Zach Tom. It’s time to stop neglecting C. Would love to see him, Lucas, Lewis and cross grow as a unit

    • Rob Staton

      Tindall 100%

      • Bankhawk

        Yass, yass! Keep Desai happy, and rebuild that D now. ✔️

  379. KSB

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

  380. SoCal12

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

  381. UP Hawk

    Hawks have had an incredible day 2

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

  382. Ryan P

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

    ????

    • Big Mike

      Eagles too if you include the trade for AJ which you should.

      • TomLPDX

        Agree with that. And the Titans finally are making some noise.

    • Veryal

      I like the Eagles draft too

  383. Blitzy the Clown

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

  384. Big Mike

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

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Raptor power

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Well, except for ravens

  385. Veryal

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

  386. Trevor

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

    Tindall
    Austin Jr
    Chenel
    Willis
    Corral

    • 206

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

  387. Ben Ft. Worth

    When do we pick next?

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Currently, 109 (tomorrow).

    • Big Mike

      tomorrow

    • Sea Mode

      In 3 more picks (89) we are officially in trade-up range with our R4 + R5 picks.

      Can you imagine capping off this day 2 with Tindall…?

      • Jabroni-DC

        Was thinking that same thing. Move up for Tindall. Take a DB with the remaining 5th. Maybe a QB flier in the 7th.

  388. clbradley17

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

    • Ben Ft. Worth

      Was just thinking the same thing. Or Zach Tom.

      • clbradley17

        Hoping Tindfall,Chenal or Tom lasts to our rd 4 pick.

  389. Trevor

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

    • clbradley17

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

  390. 206

    Michael Clemons!! He’s THAT guy

    • clbradley17

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

  391. KennyBadger

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

    • 206

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

      • KennyBadger

        That’s what I mean though – to pick him up for 3 million dollars.

        • 206

          Yeah that’d be a no brainer IMO

    • JimN

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

    • JD

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

      • KennyBadger

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

  392. Andrew

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

  393. Martinb

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

    • 206

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

      • Big Mike

        I’ve poo poohed that idea but I gotta say it may be.

        • 206

          We can speculate all we want, but will never know. What we do know, is the draft is going well so far! Who gives a shit! Go hawks!

      • Bankhawk

        💯 Good point!

    • CaptainJack

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

  394. Big Mike

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

    • TomLPDX

      Yep. And Ryan T. ain’t just gonna roll over about it either.

  395. Blitzy the Clown

    Not sure there’s a better situation for Willis.

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

    But that’s a big if.

    • Sea Mode

      Worth a shot at this point in the draft.

  396. Bankhawk

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