NFL Draft 2022 — Live Blog — Rounds 4-7

April 30th, 2022 | Written by Rob Staton

Welcome to the live blog for this year. I’ll be posting my reaction to every Seahawks pick on here.

I’ll be doing an instant reaction live stream immediately after the draft concludes.

NO tipping picks in the comments section

#109 (R4) — Coby Bryant (CB, Cincinnati)
I had Bryant graded in round four and I like the pick even though I had other corners graded higher. It’s hard to work out these days what the Seahawks want at the position — highlighted by them drafting another short armed corner (30.5 inch arms). He was considered a big time leader in Cincinnati. He’s not the quickest (4.54 at the combine, 4.48 at pro-day) but he’s competitive in run support and was well liked by a lot in the scouting community. He has a chance to compete to start which is all you can ask for in day three. Lesser upside than others but perhaps readier to start.

#145 (R5) — TRADE
The Seahawks dealt this pick to Kansas City, moving down to #158 and gaining #233.

#153 (R5) — Tariq Woolen (CB, UTSA)
Another cornerback added and it’s a player with major upside. He ran a 4.26 at 6-4 and 205lbs. He’s an outstanding athlete. Jim Nagy highlighted him during our pre-Senior Bowl interview. Woolen is a bit stiff in his transition and given his size there’s not much he can do about that. Yet the size and traits combo is majorly intriguing. I had him listed in the second round based on his remarkable upside so getting him in round five is great value. He’s only played cornerback for two years and he needs some work. Yet there isn’t really anyone else with his size, speed and explosive qualities in this draft.

#158 (R5) — Tyreke Smith (DE, Ohio State)
Perhaps best known as the guy who spent most of the Senior Bowl fighting with Trevor Penning, Smith has some pass rushing skill. Classically for the Seahawks he tested well in the short shuttle (4.26) and that has been viewed as a better indicator than forty (which wasn’t great — 4.86 at 254lbs). He had his fair share of wins in Mobile and he’s extremely competitive and sparky. I had him in the fourth round range so again this looks like good value.

#229 (R7) — Bo Melton (WR, Rutgers)
I had a fourth round grade on Melton so once again this is great value. He ran a 4.34 at the combine and jumped a 38 inch vertical. He was used as a gunner at Rutgers so he carries some special teams value and he was a two-time team captain. As a seventh round pick he has a legit chance to make the roster with a good camp. You can’t ask for more than that.

#233 (R7) — Dareke Young (WR, Lenoir-Ryne)
The final pick is another receiver. I had Young as a sixth or seventh round pick. He ran a 4.44 at his pro-day and jumped a 37 inch vertical and an 11-3 broad. That was at 6-2 and 224lbs and he looks incredible in terms of frame. He’s a developmental receiver with major upside.

    Lets go Hawks!!!
    Knock it out of the park!

  2. TomLPDX says:

    Let’s see if they can top yesterday!

    Rob, you are rockin’ this draft, thanks for all you do!!!

  3. Big Mike says:

    I’m staying with my Zach Tom to the Hawks prediction tho I know they need defensive players. With the LBs all snatched up late in round 3 yesterday (boo!!), I think they’ll feel like they can get D value after this next pick.

  4. KennyBadger says:

    I’m hoping Tom or J A-D at 109. Been a good draft so far, let’s keep it up!

  5. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Vegas has been a great venue for the draft. Much much better than Radio City.

  6. UkAlex6674 says:

    Any chance we get back into R4 by packaging up something from next year?

  7. Blitzy the Clown says:

    And away we go…

    Here’s to a strong finish to the draft!

  8. Robbie says:

    I’m excited about today! Yesterday was a home run for me!

  9. Chase says:

    Rob, you have bent sent from the heavens to give us our fix of quality Seahawks and NFL content. Very much appreciated!

  10. Comfect says:

    Thanks so much for all you’ve been doing and still do, Rob. Hope you got some actual sleep!

  11. UkAlex6674 says:

    The Ravens have 6 4th round picks!

  12. Sea Mode says:

    I’m looking at Perrion Winfrey. Time to take a risk on some upside.

  13. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Looks like there’s good value remaining among CBs, TEs (not that we need one), OL and QB (Coan or Strong).

    I think DB is where the value is at 109. Unless Winfrey’s there.

  14. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Pretty cool to announce the opening pick of Day 3 from Europe

  15. SoCal12 says:

    We were able to will the Seahawks into drafting Abe Lucas yesterday. Who are we all trying to will into drafting today?

  16. Sea Mode says:

    Maybe Patriots would like to move up. They have a bunch of picks and have to wait 11 spots after us.

  17. Seahawkwalt says:

    Amare Barno would be an intriguing pick…Wonder if he is stiff hipped
    I like John Ridgeway too, but he is tall

  18. Rob Staton says:

    Two great players off the board to start the day

  19. Sea Mode says:

    We’re on the clock!

  20. CaptainJack says:

    So far, two positions I didn’t want them to draft.

  21. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Good pick for Houston. Sorry to see Pierce won’t be a Seahawk

  22. Josh says:

    Come on Clemons, JAD, or Woolen

  23. Big Mike says:

    Looks like we’re keeping the pick……..

  24. Blitzy the Clown says:


    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Welp I think CB is a bigger need than DT so I guess it’s a good thing they won’t be tempted by Winfrey

  25. CaptainJack says:

    Winfrey to the browns. Oh well, his tape was garbage.

  26. Henry Taylor says:

    Aww man, that’s a shame to see Winfrey off the board

  27. Big Mike says:

    Fucking commercial b4 our pick YET AGAIN!

  28. Sea Mode says:

    Dang it, Cleveland.

  29. Robbie says:

    Gotta be a Corner here, at least my guess

  30. Sea Mode says:

    Our pick is in!

  31. AlaskaHawk says:

    They could still use a center. As long as your rebuilding the offense.

  32. Big Mike says:

    Um Pete, your screen is behind you……….

  33. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I’m so effen tired of Rich Eisen and his one track mind with respect to Seattle

  34. HOUSE says:

    Pick is in… is it Mathis? Gotta be defense

  35. SoCal12 says:

    Oh interesting. I just know Coby Bryant as the guy Brett Kollmann was saying was the better cornerback at Cincinnati over Sauce.

    We get to yell Coby! when he picks the ball too so that’s fun.

  36. Big Mike says:

    OK you guys saying CB were right. A definite need

    • Tony says:

      Drafting coby Bryant does instantly make the side bball games more enticing at the vmac.

  37. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Well there ya go

    Not my first choice for CB though

  38. Ulsterman says:

    Thought it’d be a corner

  39. CaptainJack says:

    They needed to add to the cornerback group. I don’t know anything about this guy but they needed to add someone there at some point.

  40. AlaskaHawk says:

    I’m in favor of picking players like him that were given awards for their play.

  41. ShowMeYourHawk says:


    *misses wastebasket*

  42. UkAlex6674 says:

    I’m OK with this pick.

  43. Sea Mode says:

    30 5/8 arms. The profile is officially out the window. And only ran 4.54.

    • SoCal12 says:

      DJ Reed really shifted views. That and I think Desai/Karl Scott might be getting more say.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Ran 4.48 at his pro day fwiw.

      Only 74″ wingspan, ouch.

      • Blitzy the Clown says:

        I don’t consider pro day 40 times. If you do you might as well shave a few tenths off every prospect’s 40 time.

        He ran a pedestrian 4.54 at the combine. He didn’t run agility at the combine, but his pro day numbers were similarly unremarkable for a DB. Not an explosive jumper either.

    • HOUSE says:

      Sherman ran a 4.56 40. Don’t need to have the fastest CB when guys play smart/tight in coverage

      • Sea Mode says:

        Yeah, I know the 40 is not the be all end all for CBs, but Sherman was also taller, longer, and more explosive.

    • MychestisBeastmode says:

      Highlight reel for Coby Bryant. Music gives me goosebumps. Not 22 tape, but he’s got an eye for the ball and knack for knocking it out, and capable of being sticky.

  44. Robbie says:

    I really like Bryant. I think he has tremendous upside and I love his attitude. I watched an interview with him a few weeks ago and came away impressed with his grit and personality.

    • Chase says:

      Haven’t done much research on him. Is he the type of player that can contribute on special teams?

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      He’s a pretty middling athlete for a DB. Where’s the upside?

      • Robbie says:

        Well first the Shaq Griffen comparison was ridiculous. Bryant actually finds the football and can cause turnovers. I know he’s not the fastest but he’s smart and instinctive. He’s a leader on his team, likes to tackle, and actually takes pride in his craft. I see lots of upside with that, he’s coachable.

  45. Big Mike says:

    It isn’t just Seattle with Eisen’s one track QB mind but it is Seattle more than other teams. Dude will not shut up about QBs.

  46. HOUSE says:

    I like this pick. Looks like Coby was the highest rated CB on the board.

  47. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I gotta be honest, I’m fairly underwhelmed by Bryant, when there were the likes of Armour-Davis, Mathis, Woolen and Brown still available.

    100% behind drafting a CB here, just had hoped for someone else.

    • Seattle Person says:

      Bryant is really good! I’m like you though because there are more athletic CBs on the board. I like it overall. He has a bunch of instincts and can project to be a solid backup or CB2.

      • Blitzy the Clown says:

        I heard someone (maybe DJ) refer to Bryant as “Shaq Griffith but not as fast” or something similar.

        I’m not saying that’s accurate, but even so, blechhhh

        • Seattle Person says:

          I wouldn’t call it blechhh. I just think he’s solid. He does everything well. He’s a football player.

          • Blitzy the Clown says:

            No I meant the description. I’m like, ok DJ if you’re trying to sell him to Seahawks fans, that’s probably not the best way to go about it.

            I’m not hating on Bryant. He’s probably the most pro ready CB available at this point. And he was pretty productive last year.

            It’s just that he has no athletic upside to become something more than what he already is.

            But as Rob points out, what more can you expect from a 4th round prospect?

            • Seattle Person says:

              Very true. There is something about a solid CB2 that won’t give up the world in coverage. Looking at Tre Flowers, Cary Williams, and among others.

              There is a role for Bryant despite his testing numbers. CB2 is pretty valuable.

  48. MountainHawker says:

    I was thinking cb, but I thought Pete would be tempted by an athletic project. Interesting. Some good guard depth still available. I have a sneaking suspicion Carson Strong is coming to Seattle soon too.

    • Seattle Person says:

      Based on this draft so far they are not interested in projects. Every dude has been through the fire and tested. They all have a position and play their positions well.

  49. I don’t know much about him, but a quick review makes him sound pretty decent. I remain gruntled with this draft so far.

  50. Ulsterman says:

    He seems like a better player than athlete

  51. Hawk Scott says:

    Best DB in the nation last year (Jim Thorpe Award)! We’ll take it!!! There were some guys with better measurables, but this guy is a football player. GO HAWKS!!!!

  52. Sten says:

    You have to wonder if the plan from the get-go was to draft both Cincy cb’s

    • Chase says:

      Interesting thought. Especially considering their shift in scheme requires some emphasis on that position. Maybe they thought one of sauce or stingily jr would be there at 9, and back up plan was taking the best OT available to them.

  53. Felipe says:

    I am fine with adding more alpha players.

  54. Roy Batty says:

    The good news is that they continue to address needs and not getting cute.

    He seems to have played well, especially since teams probably went more his way with Sauce shutting down the other side.

  55. AlaskaHawk says:

    It’s tempting to say they could have found a quicker cornerback, but in this round will they play better than Koby? Probably not considering he was given a national award for his play. And lets not forget the cornerback has to come up and make tackles on those edge plays.

  56. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    I’m somewhat curious if PCJS view Bryant as a CB/S hybrid. With the lack of top end speed and the shorter arms, I’d think he’d have a LOT of trouble covering taller, faster WR. His pop and instincts could make him dangerous underneath, though.

    • Seattle Person says:

      He’s a press corner and he can play zone too. I can’t imagine the team trying him at safety yet.

  57. Hawk Mock says:

    Glad to see them actively addressing Tackle, Edge and CB. Three of the most important positions. Get some young guys at those positions to come in and compete. Get the most important position in next year’s draft. Seems like an actual plan this year which is nice.

  58. Big Mike says:

    Wasn’t Butler a guy Rob mocked to us in like round 5?

  59. Sea Mode says:

    Dang, Percy Butler off the board.

  60. Seattle Person says:

    I don’t like Faalele but he went to the perfect team. Good for that kid.

  61. Scot04 says:

    I’m fine with the pick. Just a little bummed about just missing out on Winfrey. Figured he’d go to TB or Cleveland as they both had needs at DT.
    Definitely not unhappy with the CB pick though.

    • Seattle Person says:

      If we are talking about pass rushing DTs, there is still Matthew Butler and Eric Johnson Jr. that I like. They both ran under 5.00 and are really quick.

  62. Rob Staton says:

    This is so hard to watch so many good players coming off the board.

    Can’t believe we gave up this fourth rounder to Denver and they get Mathis.

    Wish we had an extra fourth.

    • AlaskaHawk says:

      When do you think they will cross the line from hopeful starter to long shots? End of the 4th round? Still plenty of names of interest, maybe end of 5th round?

    • HOUSE says:

      Agreed. Like you said on the video last night, I can’t see us not getting the trade done has we not given this pick away. Could’ve been another solid player. 🤦‍♂️

      • BRNDNvsWRLD says:

        I see it more as the 4th being included for a player. Maybe like 4th attached to include Shelby Harris in the deal.

  63. SoCal12 says:

    Coby Bryant was on Bootleg Football’s Defensive Gems list:

    Interesting quote from a player who played Cincy saying that Coby was better than Sauce. Coby had to do more while Sauce was in man most of the time.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Sauce ended up being a bit overrated in the end

      • SoCal12 says:

        Yeah I think Sauce has a safe floor but might not be elite. Excited for Coby though. Sounds like he had a lot of responsibility on the defense, and was highly capable in the role. Scouts seem to think of him highly. I like drafting guys who seem like they’re just good at football.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Interesting, thanks for the link.

    • WallaSean says:

      Let’s hope there is always a question of which one is better going forward, could be a great pick.

  64. CaptainJack says:

    Baltimore continues to take whoever the biggest name left on the board is. Of course it draws a lot of praise from the media because it’s easy to recognize who they pick even later in the draft. It’s an overrated strategy.

    For example I have heard Faalele’s name frequently through the process but wasn’t really familiar with Coby Bryant. But I feel confident Bryant will be a starter for us at some point and Faalele is a likely bust.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I don’t like Faalele but you can hardly accuse them of ‘just drafting big names’

      They’ve had a great draft

      • CaptainJack says:

        If they’re so great at drafting where are their recent Super Bowl rings?

        Kyle Hamilton is slow
        Tyler Linderbaum doesn’t fit their offensive scheme
        Ojabo won’t contribute much this year
        Faalele is stone Forsythe 2.0

        Whatever . I’m not as impressed as everyone else seems to be.

  65. Denver Hawker says:

    Broncos take Mathis with our pick. Will be interesting to see who ends up better between Bryant and Mathis.

    • Seattle Person says:

      This one hurts. Mathis has so much upside because he’s a superior athlete. However he is just a press CB right now. He can struggle in Zone. Bryant can play either really well right now. He doesn’t have as much upside though.

  66. Bobby54 says:

    Love the Coby pickup. Scrappy player, good tackler. PFF had him at 86.7 last year, with a 85 cover grade and a 81 tackling grade. Better in Zone than in Men (84 to 69), 2nd best after McCreary who he is very similar to

  67. Allen M. says:

    We are killing this draft. Would have liked a top C somehow, but there are some guys left that could end up values. Barno is a guy I’d really like us to add for more Edge. I suspect the Seahawks like our LBs better than I do but tons left that can be mined with remaining picks. Bryant has ball skills which goes away from what we had (and disliked) with Tre Flowers. Type changes continue to surprise.

    • Seattle Person says:

      I think they view Barton as the starter and maybe in their long term plans. LB or Zach Tom in the next round would be perfect.

  68. D says:

    Uwazurike was one i’d have loved us to get… damn

  69. Hawks4life says:

    Jests are killing this draft God damnnnn

  70. D-Mac says:

    It’s official: Jets win the draft

  71. Rob Staton says:

    Bravo Jets

    What a fourth round this is

  72. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Damn there goes Clemons

  73. Seattle Person says:

    The Jets are schooling the NFL. Freaking amazing draft class.

    • MychestisBeastmode says:

      Agree. Jets are putting together one hell of a team on paper. Now, let’s see if their coaching staff doesn’t go and bungle it all up. Nothing against Saleh. Just the organization track record.

  74. Veryal says:

    Damn Jets. But we can still get 2 of Tom, Kevin Austin, JAD, or even a QB and be in great shape

  75. KennyBadger says:

    Keep hearing coby is a smart, instinctive player. I think Pete is at his best with dbs like that.

  76. HOUSE says:

    Damn you Jets… Damn you

  77. samprassultanofswat says:

    Coby Bryant is a taller version of Trey Brown. He reminds lot of the Trey Brown pick. Louis Riddick(ESPN) said Bryant has a high football IQ. He likes to bait quarterbacks. Bryant is a ball hawk. 170 career tackles, 10 ints, 4 forced fumbles, 35 passes defensed. Bryant is going to assist you in run defense. He is not afraid to get dirty.

  78. HOUSE says:

    Nice… a buddy of mine was just saying teams shied away from Sauce and then Coby would eat them up. Plays very intelligent football.

    I like it… I’m bummed to see so many guys we liked go right around this pick though

  79. Rob Staton says:

    Another great Ravens pick here

  80. Seattle Person says:

    The Ravens strike again!

  81. seaspunj says:

    the Jets will no longer be a laughing stock anymore. this draft has been foundational for them and probably will have this draft to thank for it.

    Seahawks picks here on out is gravy for me. I cant believe how solid these picks have been

    and of course the Ravens picked amazing as always but so be it hahahaah

  82. Henry Taylor says:

    The Ravens are really good at drafting.

  83. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Ravens and Jets sittin in the tree, kay-eye-el-el-eye-en-gee the draft

  84. Sea Mode says:

    Oh, duh. Coby Bryant was the “Legacy” draft clue.

    Pete Carroll

    “Legacy” by Jay-Z #SeahawksDraftClues #NFLDraft

  85. KennyBadger says:

    The ravens draft looks like most of my pfn simulator results drafting for the Seahawks.

  86. D-Mac says:

    Really surprising the Hawks haven’t tapped into a really strong and deep LB class. Have to think they’ll take a shot in the 5th, no?

    Really hoping we can snag one of Smith, Beavers, or Clark!

    • Rob Staton says:

      Very surprising. Felt like a certainty after the combine.

      Speaks to how much they were just ready to move on from Wagner (the right move)

      • D-Mac says:

        Makes you wonder if their comments supporting Barton as a potential starter had more substance than it seemed at the time. A view I do not share, might I add.

    • seaspunj says:

      yeah I believe everyone here on SDB wanted Tindall or Chenal but heres hoping they can find a LB in final few picks and surprise the 12s!

    • WallaSean says:

      I think with the combo of the 3-4 looks using Mafe, Nwosu and Taylor at LB and a three safety in the nickel, it might be less of a need snap wise this season.

    • Jerry says:

      If Damone Clark slides to the fifth round, that would seem like a good spot to take a chance of a high risk/high reward player.

  87. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Scheme, teammates, division, schedule, all play important parts in the development of an NFL prospect.

    But it’ll still be interesting to mark Coby Bryant, Damarri Mathis and Jalyn Armour-Davis against each other in the seasons to come.

    • seaspunj says:

      well said and I remember when Seahawks drafted Wagner when Kendricks was picked and thankfully for the 12s we got Wagner and eventually Kendricks too but seriously I am hoping Bryant can be foundational

  88. Of the Seahawks, Jets, or Ravens drafts, so far which would you prefer for Seattle?

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Hard to compare with the Jets when they have so much draft capital to play with.

      Love the players drafted by the Ravens, but I love the players drafted by Seattle too.

    • Jerry says:

      The Jets. Not close. They have killed this draft.

  89. Scot04 says:

    In regards to Denver getting our 4th; I’m just happy it wasn’t straight up.
    Atleast we’ll have pick 153 from them & 2 picks in the 5th.

  90. Wheatsnack says:

    Feels like ILB will wait until next year, and we will see how Barton holds down the role. If he success, great. If not, we have a lot of ammo.

    • Wheatsnack says:

      Also means we will presumably (and hopefully) taking our QB and ILB of the future in the same draft again.

  91. JimN says:

    LIstening to the Cinci coach on Colby and Sauce. Colby seems to have more reign and they have him doing a lot of different things compared to Sauce where they just him mirror a reciever and shut him down. CB needs to be much about instinct and where the ball is going. We will see, but it is the 4th round, and we can’t have everybody we want. Seems like he is a real football player. He has had a whole lot of reps, so he is very experienced and consistent.

  92. JimN says:

    Perhaps a QB in one of the next two picks?

  93. Veryal says:

    Glad they already got their RB. Seeing Pierce go 2 before and White now sucks but is bearable now

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Said something similar last night – doesn’t hurt watching good EDGE prospects get picked when we already have Boye Mafe in our pocket.

  94. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I like Isaiah Spiller but he’s not the 3rd best RB in this draft. My goodness

  95. Sea Mode says:

    He moves well

    Coby Bryant Cincinnati Pro Day Highlights

  96. TomLPDX says:

    And there goes a kicker!

  97. Ulsterman says:

    Anybody else think this is the most disciplined Seahawks draft in a long time

  98. TomLPDX says:

    It’s just amazing how deep this draft is. I hope we get some quality in round 5, we aren’t done.

  99. Veryal says:

    I have a feeling that Baltimore is going to end up with Kevin Austin because why wouldn’t they at this point

  100. Are the Seahawks still looking for starters at positions of need in the 5th or is it straight BPA from this point out?

  101. Rob H says:

    I like that they took a safe player instead of a project like Tre Flowers. ,” Oh, we can convert him.” No thanks. This kid at least plays the position and has had success. If he is merely a solid player that we don’t need to worry about he is an upgrade over the last several years. Great draft so far.

  102. Big Mike says:

    This Blue Man Group crap is so bad I’m switching to ESPN

  103. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Blue Man Group be like ‘get out’

  104. Trevor says:

    Rob the Ravens must read Seahawks Draft Blog they take all the guys you like.

  105. Beastie says:

    Rob, any thoughts on the possibility of whether Forsyth, Curhan or Lucas could play guard next year? You’ve talked about Gabe Jackson as a potential cap casualty and not looking like they will pick up a guard. Are they pinning their hopes on Haynes taking the LG position?

  106. Forrest says:

    I’d love to see a guard next. Some good tackles left who will be better guards.

  107. JimQ says:

    OT/OC-Zach Tom & WR-Kevin Austin for the next two Seahawk picks? That’s my choices and note both of these guys are in GOLD on Rob’s spreadsheet so hope they go that way.

  108. RobH says:

    Ravens killin’ this draft.

  109. Garon Galloway says:

    Training can get one faster, it doesn’t instill natural leadership or innate football intelligence. This is not a candidate with lesser upside.

  110. Coach says:

    I would like Tom, but would prefer a LB with our other 5th rounder.

    I found an article where the KC blog was wanting the Chiefs to draft Bryant because they thought he was one of those rare 4th rounders who could turn into a reliable starter.

    Here’s a quote
    Bryant is likely to be one of those players that coaches love — and therefore lasts in the league longer than his athletic profile would suggest. He will never be a defensive cornerstone — but right from his first game, he is likely to be one of those rare third or fourth-round picks who can dependably handle a significant role.

    Here’s the link to the whole article if you want to learn more about Bryant

    This is one of the examples of going with a good player over good measurables of someone like Woolen, and I think it’s the better choice in this instance and he has a chance to contribute early.

    Go Hawks!

  111. swedenhawk says:

    Recent winners of the Jim Thorpe award include: Trevon Moehrig, Grant Delpit, Deandre Baker, and Minkah Fitzpatrick (not to mention the likes of Malcolm Jenkins, Eric Berry, Patrick Peterson, and Charles Woodson). Not bad company to be in.

  112. Scot04 says:

    Coach Fickell with a little bit on Coby Bryant

  113. Rob4q says:

    Broncos are having a nice draft as well…Patton is a good GM. If Russ stays healthy, they are going to win a lot of games.

  114. CaptainJack says:

    Next two picks will be center and linebacker

  115. Forrest says:

    How about a Justyn Ross for a WR3? Could fill in at WR2 if we lose Dk in a year.

  116. DC says:

    I’m enjoying the Seahawks new draft approach of drafting good players instead of being cute and drafting a relatively obscure guy that they like because he fit some arbitrary measurable.

    And reading the ES*N takes like “Seahawks messed up by not drafting Willis #40” or “Mafe wasn’t necessary because they drafted Taylor in the 2nd round of the 2021 draft” (that one made me laugh) makes me appreciate you more, Rob.

  117. Forrest says:

    Damone Clark is tempting too.

    Will we see Carson Strong?

  118. Beastie says:

    Two punters and a place kicker in round four. You don’t see that every day

  119. Seahawk_Dan says:

    Maybe Zach Tom at 109? Really just round out and solidify that O-Line.

  120. Roy Batty says:

    It’s funny to see the Chiefs pick in the 4th and seeing “still have 6 picks left.”

    They can take flyers on so many players.

  121. cha says:

    MR Sports👑
    · 1h
    the Jamal Adams Trade officially is complete

    Seahawks received:
    • S Jamal Adams
    • 2022 4th CB Coby Bryant

    New York Jets received:
    • S Bradley McDougald (cut)
    • 2021 1st OL Alijah Vera-Tucker
    • 2022 1st WR Garrett Wilson

    • Kenny Sloth says:

      Definitely still prefer Jamal Adams, but we’ll see how those picks pan out

    • God of Thunder says:

      Hopefully Bryant moves that trade from a 70-30 loss to a 50-50 proposition!

      And then we can forget about it. *

      * We’ll never hear the end if it, sadly.

  122. Veryal says:

    Kickers/punters are pacing the QBs. Tells you everything about this class

  123. Seahawkwalt says:

    Who do we want

  124. Henry Taylor says:

    The Patriots draft has been weird.

  125. Beastie says:

    Who is Bailey Zappe? Anybody heard of him?

  126. SoCal12 says:

    Calvin Austin going to put up some numbers at Pittsburgh. Good spot for him.

  127. Seattle Person says:

    Freaking Ravens…

  128. TCHawk says:

    I’m hoping for Beavers, then Zach Tom, then Coan.

  129. Jerry says:

    There are still a lot of good players on the board.

    I wonder if Round 5 could be a spot to take a shot on a developmental QB. Seven picks from the Hawks next selection, and these guys are still on the board:

    -Sam Howell
    -Carson Strong
    -Kaleb Eleby
    -Jack Coan

    At this point, taking a shot on someone makes a ton of sense. Just getting a backup this late isn’t a bad outcome.

  130. Seattle Person says:


  131. Henry Taylor says:

    Ah Zach Tom gone, that’s a shame

  132. seaspunj says:

    would you go Darian Beavers ILB or JoJo Domain?

    maybe both ?

  133. Sea Mode says:

    5 picks away! Hopefully the commercial break now means we won’t have one at our pick, finally!

  134. Veryal says:

    Stupid packers….. 5 picks away

  135. Scot04 says:

    Stupid Green Bay. Really hating these compensation picks. They’ve cost us likely a top LB & maybe Tom if we liked him

  136. HawksGal says:

    I think it’ll be Beavers

  137. Big Mike says:

    Damn you Green Bay

  138. WallaSean says:

    Beavers, Tom, or 2 for 1 trade back. Just fantastic so far, even with the lack of trade downs, filling so many needs.

  139. GoHawks5151 says:

    Did I miss the Notre Dame WR that Rob liked get taken?

  140. BoiseSeahawk says:

    #145 (R5) — Jalyn Armour-Davis / Perrion Winfrey / Kevin Austin Jr.
    #153 (R5) — Michael Clemons / Damone Clark / Percy Butler
    #229 (R7) — Isaiah Weston / Christopher Allen / Jalen Wydermyer

    UDFA: Jack Coan, Thomas Booker, Max Borghi

  141. Scot04 says:

    Really really hating the comp picks.

  142. Seahawkwalt says:

    Beavers looks slow
    Would he be a fit?

    • D-Mac says:

      Converting to a more conventional 3-4 could create a need for a “jack hammer” type at ILB. Put him in a phone booth in the middle of the D attacking downhill and that could mask some of his speed deficiencies.

  143. Alfred says:


  144. drrew76 says:

    Did we just trade out?

  145. Sea Mode says:

    Did we just trade down?

  146. Sea Mode says:

    Looks like KC, so down to 158?

  147. Blitzy the Clown says:

    So we moved down to 158?

  148. Scot04 says:

    Guessing a QB flyer soon too. Since John said they wanted to start drafting 1 per year again

  149. Big Mike says:

    Bet it’s not coincidental that Tom got drafted and then we traded out.

  150. Scot04 says:

    Washington QB?

  151. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I like Okonkwo here. Lots of upside.

  152. Tecmo Bowl says:

    Nice little move down the board. Dig it
    145 for 158, 233

  153. Big Mike says:

    Yep shows us at #158 now. Wonder what we got back? A 6th maybe?

  154. Seattle Person says:

    I’m really glad they aren’t showing Howell’s reaction or family. The media absolutely did these young QBs dirty.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Big time

      Media should be ashamed for the way they reported this QB class

      • Sea Mode says:

        Unfortunately they do it cause they know that’s all many of the casual fans whose team needs a QB care about.

      • Regan says:

        These idiots in TV are like puppets with a hand up their arse squacking QB QB QB!

      • Tecmo Bowl says:


        Howell has a chance at being a quality back up. He should try to get some pointers from Chase Daniel. 😄

      • HotRodSancho says:

        Not just the “media”, whatever that is. The mock draft industrial complex was just as culpable. Chad Reuter had the Hawks trading a future 1st to trade up to draft Corral just a few weeks back.

  155. Rob Staton says:

    Consistently said I saw absolutely nothing in Sam Howell to get excited about

    A thoroughly mediocre prospect

    Not surprised at all he went in R5

    • Roy Batty says:

      And these on-air commentators going on and on and on about him.

      Just acknowledge the pick, guys, say a few nice things and move on.

      He is not Tom Brady.

  156. GoHawks5151 says:

    7th or UDFA LB Nate Landsman from Colorado?

  157. Sea Mode says:

    Meh, ok.

    Seahawks PR

    The @Seahawks traded no. 145 (5th-round) to Kansas City for no. 158 (5th) and no. 233 (7th). #GoHawks

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      KC didn’t have a 6th but that’s the value they should’ve received.

      But in a draft this deep, I’m cool with it.

    • Scot04 says:

      Trade happened like right after Howell announced. Maybe that’s who Seattle was gonna take. I’m glad we got the extra pick

      • Blitzy the Clown says:

        I think it’s the other way around. The trade preceded the pick by Washington, because the trade occurred while the Titans were still on the clock

      • WallaSean says:

        i thought I saw the pick before Washington was on the clock, more likely after the Tom pick?

  158. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I wonder if the extra pick is for one of Coan or Strong. Or their top UDFA to make sure they get their guy.

  159. CaptainJack says:

    Lol… trade down just to get dibs on a udfa guy.

  160. Tecmo Bowl says:

    Rob and the community absolutely nailed the cliff at LB. Only 1 LB has gone so far today. Stings we missed out.

    • Rob4q says:

      For sure the elite LB talent went on day 2. Maybe they really do like Barton as much as they say?!?

      There are still some good developmental LB’s available though:

      Darrian Beavers – Cincy
      Aaron Hansford – Texas A&M
      Devin Harper – Ok State
      Micah McFadden – Indiana

  161. TCHawk says:

    Who else might draft a QB at this point? No reason for Seahawks to rush. Wait til Rd 7.

  162. Seattle Person says:

    I would like to think they wanted Tom to fall to them but traded down once he left the board.

  163. John says:

    Seahawks please draft Kevin Austin he would be an absolute steal

  164. Hawkster says:

    I was thinking Kinnard once Tom was gone.

  165. Catharsis50 says:

    How was the value of that trade back?

  166. Veryal says:

    They wanted Tom I bet. But let’s get Kevin Austin here and the I’m good taking a flyer on Damone Clark at 158. Tariq Woolen would be interesting as well

    • Veryal says:

      Smoke Monday or baron would be cool as well

    • Tecmo Bowl says:

      Woolen or McCollum are both raw athletes with incredible upside. A double dip at CB would be interesting! Whens the last time PC had a project at CB?

  167. Troy D. says:

    Rob any QB’s that could have entered this draft and gotten all the attention given how historically bad this class is (in my opinion anyways)?

  168. CaptainJack says:

    Coan here?

  169. Seahawkwalt says:

    Could JoJo Doman be a starter in this league?

    • Seattle Person says:

      Yes. He’s old and has had multiple knee surgeries. One hell of a player though.

  170. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Austin Jr, Woolen, Montaric Brown, Kyron Johnson all good value at 154 and 158

    • Tecmo Bowl says:

      Kyron Johnson crushed his pro day! Intriging player. Question where he plays in Seattle. Can he cover at all?

  171. Rob4q says:

    Would like to see them draft this dude:

    Kalia Davis, DT UCF
    302 lbs

    Davis is quick for his size and flashes the ability to disrupt plays in the backfield. He shoots his hands, knocks blockers back on contact and gets off blocks one-on-one. He has limited range, but it doesn’t prevent him from turning and chasing. He pushes the pocket and gets his hands up, but he’s not a polished hands fighter and doesn’t close well rushing the passer.

    • Kurtzumd says:

      Special Teamers now.

      Don’t kid yourself like the Hawks did, for years, that there was a Richard Sherman HOFer, lurking in the fifth round. Truly a unicorn. PC drafted so many of these types of underrated, just coach’em up kind of guys that our roster filled up with second rate players.

      This is obviously a GM led draft. JS is in charge.

      We won the draft – in the NFC, at least. Four top forty players, meaning at least three starters, 5-8 year linchpins. One All-pro. For a team that wants to move the ball with a balance of run/pass, talent on the offensive line is tantamount….

      Lucas is THE steal of the draft. If he played anywhere near the Eastern Spin Network Zone, he would have gone top-15.

      MSU RB was the only other guy I saw, and he WREKT Michigan, pretty much singlehandedly. Big Game player!

      No more starters out there. We are filling roster spots. Tackling dummies.

  172. WestSide72 says:

    I would like to buy a 6th from Jacksonville

  173. Henry Taylor says:

    Dominque Robinson, Amare Barno, Tariq Woolen and Zyon McCullom all represent big athletic upside.

  174. Seahawkwalt says:

    I think Tariq has too much upside to not take a chance . He is also a converted wr

  175. Scot04 says:

    Do they go Center to fit their new size. Maybe a Dohnovan West?

  176. uptop says:

    I could see jake ferguson going here. Maybe beavers

  177. Seahawkwalt says:

    Tariq then JoJo

  178. GoHawks5151 says:

    Cole Turner! Don’t know why it took me so long but I coaches against him when he was at Clackamas High in OR. Good for him

  179. Sea Mode says:

    Maybe take a shot on Damone Clark?

    Or I wonder if they will look to the trade/cut market to see what LBs could become available after the draft.

  180. WallaSean says:

    Damone Clark has to be a big consideration at these spots.

  181. Scot04 says:

    I remember Rob liked Ridgeway

  182. Seahawkwalt says:

    I called it!!!!
    I love it babyyyy

  183. Scot04 says:

    Like Woolen here.

  184. TomLPDX says:

    Alright! I was hoping to get Tariq! MEEP MEEP!

  185. SoCal12 says:

    Cornerback competition going to be really interesting this year.

  186. Kenny Sloth says:

    👀 picks in

  187. Sea Mode says:

    And we get Bonetta’s stupid segment instead of the picks we have patiently waited for. Ugh.

  188. cha says:

    That attempted comedy package NFLN just ran on that woman while the Seahawks pick was coming in is an embarrassment.

  189. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Excellent pick! Very pleased with this!!

  190. Seahawkwalt says:

    He learned coverages playing Madden! I love him already

  191. Henry Taylor says:

    Tariq Woolen is exceptional value here. Love this!

  192. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Really excited about Woolen!

  193. Scot04 says:

    Makes more sense since Coby has position versatility as slot also. Desai picks?

  194. seaspunj says:

    hrmm remember there was a former WR turned CB drafted in 5th round? maybe just maybe the LOB is reborn!

  195. Chris says:

    4.26 40 wow!!

  196. Sea Mode says:

    Maybe he’s the one they tagged as their gunner for special teams. Not sure I see it at CB, but time will tell.

  197. Ulsterman says:

    First real physical freak, another nice pick

  198. Seahawkwalt says:

    He learned coverage is playing Madden! I love this.

    Linebacker next?

    Sleeper pick Xzander Horvath

    • WallaSean says:

      I will lose my mind if they finish off with my draft crushes back to back in the 5th!!?

  199. Big Mike says:

    4.26 Forty? Sheeeeeit that’s fast.

    • Seahawkwalt says:

      Imagine him at safety

    • Seahawkwalt says:

      I believe one of Rob’s guest mentioned he could get drafted in the first round just based off his attributes

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Legit electronically timed. His 10 yard split is 1.47s.

      And he jumped 42″ vert at the combine and 10-11 broad at his pro day.

      His agility isn’t the greatest relative to other DBs (4.30s in the 20 yard shuttle and 7.10s in the 3 cone), but the dude is 6-4 and has 34″ arms!

  200. Seahawkwalt says:

    He learned coverage is playing Madden!

    Linebacker next?

    Sleeper pick Xzander Horvath

  201. KennyBadger says:

    Èl Rebuildó! Ay eeeee!

  202. Sea Mode says:

    Man, we haven’t even reached R6 yet and NFL Network has already given up the spirit.

  203. David K Crockett says:

    I wonder if two CBs chosen today means that’s a wrap on Marquise Blair.

    • HOUSE says:

      I don’t think so. Maybe Umadi. Blair is still viewed as the backup FS. Injuries have hurt him. Umadi has struggled on the field.

  204. Happy Hawk says:

    Big hole at LB – how to fill it with the cupboard bare in this draft? FA?

  205. seaspunj says:

    I want a LB and an Oline C or Guard with the final picks this is like Thanksgiving eating all that food and making extra room for dessert

  206. Seahawkwalt says:

    What a no-nonsense meat and potatoes draft. A+

  207. Troy D says:

    Must say Woolen is not a name I thought I would see on the All Pro list in 2024 but hey its gonna be cool. Manifest it.

  208. Chris says:

    ESPN is doing a good job

  209. SoCal12 says:

    Lengthy cornerback with traits to the Seahawks. Where have I heard that before?🤔

  210. TrenchWarfare says:

    Going off of needs:

    LB – Domann, Beavers but I’d prefer drafting/stashing Clark for a year
    OG – I know they had some pre-draft connection with Salyer
    DT: Ridgeway
    DE: Enagbare
    WR: Melton, Austin

    Damn good draft. A ton to look forward to this year.

  211. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Looking forward to a DK/Tariq runoff

  212. Mark says:

    Rasheed walker as. Guard prospect for hawks next?

  213. BoiseSeahawk says:

    Hope they pick Damone Clark here if he didn’t already go off the board

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      There’s a chance he never plays again. Maybe sign as a priority UDFA but that’s it.

      • TrenchWarfare says:

        I remember that very same reason being given on SDB a couple of years ago to not draft DK. By all indications, Clark’s recovering well from his spinal fusion procedure. Well worth a late round pick.

      • BoiseSeahawk says:

        UDFA would be amazing for Clark, if he’s half the player he was at LSU he’d be fun to watch in the NFL

  214. Seahawkwalt says:

    I say Domann

  215. Tecmo Bowl says:

    Wattenburg would be a good pick here.

  216. Scot04 says:

    Nice pick by TB

  217. TrenchWarfare says:

    Interesting pick at 158.

  218. Big Mike says:

    So who is Tyreke Smith? Please fill me in

  219. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Tyreke Smith gives me the LJ Collier vibes

  220. CaptainJack says:

    Another young pass rusher. Not on my radar but I’m not complaining about adding young competition to that group

  221. regan says:

    Rob had him in the 4th on his board.

  222. Blitzy the Clown says:

    So barring any trade up/back in, that’s it until 229 and 233

  223. GoHawks5151 says:

    Mcshay: If not for injuries could have been a 2nd/3rd rounder.

    Not mad at this. It’s lottery ticket time

  224. JimQ says:

    I wonder if they will use a 2023 day-3 pick to trade back into the big gap between 159 & 233 this year? They have done this in the past, even last year IIRC.

  225. seaspunj says:

    Smith possibly converted to OLB/DE hybrid?

  226. TJ says:

    What a great draft. Good value at every pick. For the first time in the PC/JS era, I talk to the TV while the Hawks are on the clock and its like they are listening.

  227. SoCal12 says:

    When was the last draft we had where where every pick made sense and was good value? Feels like such a strange feeling. Seems like Pete really needed to go back to what he was good at, which is building a locker room as opposed to maintaining.

    • Hawk Scott says:

      EXACTLY!!! It’s like they FINALLY gave up being cute and just got some damn ballers!!! LOVE IT!!!!

    • Gross MaToast says:

      It’s worth asking whether JS is calling the shots. I even like the Cross pick with how things have come together. With the exception of missing Tindall/Chenal, who could’ve asked for more?

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        I think JS actually has taken more control because he would be fired before he retired unlike Pete

      • Hawk Scott says:

        Yeah, missing out on Tindall/Chenal is the only real downer. But really great value on a lot of these picks… and props to the staff for not reaching for guys and just letting the Draft come to them. It’s usually the other way around.

      • UkAlex6674 says:

        I think that the new coaches have had a big influence

      • pmoney says:

        Would’ve been nice to nab some LB as well as one of the athletic IOL…but then again they were never going to be able to fill all their needs with just one draft and I can’t complain about really any of the picks.

      • Hawkster says:

        I lump Muma in with the collection of LBSs would have liked to see in SEA

  228. Brett in AZ says:

    This has been an excellent draft. Great foundation – even though they are still one draft and some good FA moves away. But just an excellent start. They’re really getting their soul back on track here.

    Let’s hope it continues!

  229. MattressJ says:

    I think Pete and John are fans of the blog Rob lol.

  230. GoHawksDani says:

    I like the Woolen pick. He’ll either be an amazing corner in 2-3-4 years from now, or just a camp body or an ST guy. He could provide value as a gunner, but if he can improve as a CB, he has every tool to be great. Nice upside and that’s all I can ask in R5.

    As for Coby Bryant, decent pick, but I don’t see how he could be better than Jones or Brown or Burns. He’s an OK CB with some limited chance to be a starter in year 1-2-3, but not much upside. Definitely good for depth and competition, but I’m not excited about him as a CB (where Woolen might get cut before the season, but he could also become a star after some exp)

    Tyreke Smith feels a bit wasted pick to me. He’s a developmental guy who could become a rotational or backup rusher. I don’t feel like he’s a kind of safe pick like Bryant and neither has the upside like Woolen. And not sure we need a potential backup passrusher either.
    I’d rather have an LB or DT or OC or OG where we need depth much more. Or even Smoke Monday, Eleby or Coan (not sure everyone is still available) would feel like a better pick for a need or for an upside in ST

  231. Troy D. says:

    Great draft and now just time to lose a bunch and hope there are 4-5 legit QB’s next year so we can get one with our Broncos pick and use ours to get Will Anderson (this is my dream and should be yours as well).

  232. seaspunj says:

    love this draft and I truly believe these drafted players can turn into impact players and or solid contributors

    by far the rebuild is shaping very well and let’s hope Broncos suck and we have a shot at a franchise QB next draft

    seriously I am blown away with all the holes that were filled

    12s now need to see the coaching and development for these picks to fulfill the potential impact players this draft can be!

  233. SoCal12 says:

    Weezer look like such a dad rock band now damn.

    • God of Thunder says:

      Yeah, “this just in” we all get older.

    • Big Mike says:

      Seen Metallica lately? Kirk Hammett’s hair is nearly totally gray. At least he still has his, Lars doesn’t even have hair anymore. As God of Thunder said, we all gettin’ older man.

  234. Cincinnati LB Joel Dublanko

    Hoping to see his name called today.

  235. Jackson says:

    Other than one of Chanal or Tindall falling to us at 109 and maybe Jurgens instead of Walker at 41, I couldn’t be more excited about this Seattle draft class. Very well done all around by Pete and John.

  236. Tecmo Bowl says:

    This draft has been conducted with a crystal clear plan. Love to see it!

    Bookend OTs! Defined positions too
    Top 2 RB. Walker is legit!
    EDGE-Mafe is just scratching the surface. Smith is quality depth.
    2 CBs- Bryant is ready to eat. Woolen sky high upside project for PC.

    LB, WR, C, S, TE, QB are wide open for the 2 7ths+UDFAs

    • God of Thunder says:

      Who is the QB Rob liked? Coan?

      He might be a UDFA.

    • BoiseSeahawk says:

      Hopefully Bryant is ready to play too and not just eat all day.

      Interesting that the Seahawks writeup on Smith lists him as a LB.

  237. Laurent says:

    How many of our picks would you project to make 53 man roster cut

  238. Ukhawk says:

    Love it. My thoughts on doubling up on CB and DE coming true!!

    Go get a LB – Damone Clark?!

    • Ukhawk says:

      So great they are filling needs at premium positions.

      Some great WRs still available incl Austin!!

    Corbin Smith:
    New #Seahawks EDGE Tyreke Smith said he didn’t drop into coverage much at Ohio State because they ran a 4-3, but he’s comfortable doing so and Pete Carroll told him he would be playing outside linebacker.

    • clbradley17 says:

      He barely has the speed to play DE in the mid-high 4.8s, slower than the UGA DTs. Can’t see him covering anyone or playing OLB with that slow speed.

  240. clbradley17 says:

    Was hoping for a LB in rd. 5. Forgot about Rodriguez of OkSt. until they showed best available recently. Wish we would’ve taken him instead of slow Smith at DE with 158. Also the Saints took LB D’marco Jackson after us – 6’1″ 230s, ran 4.5 40, 19 TFLs, led all FBS LBs with 17% completion rate in coverage. Or big DT Butler from Tenn., sub 5.0 40, Kiper’s favorite DT in the draft with a 3rd-4th rd. grade, blew up Alabama in a loss and dominated all combine week.

  241. CaptainJack says:

    Lol, broncos draft Wattenberg. Good person. But I’d feel terrible for russell wilson if he ever has to play a game with him starting at center… When you struggle against pac12 lineman I’m not sure how anyone can expect you to hold up in the NFL

  242. AlexG says:

    We neeeed a qb with next pick , trade up for one even!!!

    • Gross MaToast says:

      From his Rolls, Geno Smith casts a death stare in your direction.

      • God of Thunder says:

        Fixed it for you: “Upside down, from the Rolls he rolled, Geno casts a death stare.”

        • Gross MaToast says:


          Geno wants to remind you all, “Buckle Up, I’m on the road!”

          • L80 says:

            Geno rolls up in a stretch limo, rolls the window down and asks….Pardon me…..Do you have any Grey……….Goose?

    • Scot04 says:

      0 need to trade up. Plus we have 3 on the roster. They’ll likely take a 7th round flyer at best.

  243. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Well there goes Damone Clark

  244. vanhawk says:

    Going to be real hard to get a qb next year with so many qb needy teams continuing to be qb needy teams next year.

    Stating the obvious I guess. But always laugh when journalists state “no need for this team to get a poor qb this year when they can get Will Levis next year…” except there are not 10 Will Levis’ next year.

    • JimQ says:

      QB-Grayson McCall, Costal Carolina, check out his passing #’s, he’ll be among the 1-st rounders somewhere-IMO.

    • Troy D. says:

      We have 2 1st round picks. I feel we can get a top QB with that kind of draft capital if that is required.

      • VanHawk says:

        Maybe, I guess a possible 1-10 + 1-25 could get you a qb, not the top few qbs though.

  245. JimQ says:

    LB-DARRIAN BEAVERS; 6-4/237, 36.5″-Vert, *6,91-3Cone* & 125″-Broad – Couldn’t find a 40 time, but his other testing #’s don’t look too bad. Wasn’t he on the “Seahawks visits list”?

  246. Silly Billy says:

    Quick question: why don’t we have a 6th rounder this year?

    Was that the Gabe Jackson trade?

  247. mtpgod says:

    I’d just like to say, what a great draft so far. It would’ve been easy for the fo to reach for a qb and panic, but they haven’t. They’ve addressed a majority of their biggest holes and I’m super optimistic about everything now. Great job JS!!!
    Looking for a Jack Coan/Carson Strong 7th round flier.

    • God of Thunder says:

      I think Strong is a wasted pick.

      Better to grab another RB or a receiver. Or a project at LB.

  248. JimQ says:

    I’m hoping they will use some of next year stock to trade back in SOON, so they don’t miss out on WR-Austin.

    He very well could be considered a “hedge” against the possible holdout or trade of Metcalf (who may ask for the 25-30 million range for his future services in a run 1-st offense. That could amount to $250-$300K per catch if he catches an unlikely 100 passes. He couldn’t possibly be worth that kind of price, could he?

  249. HawkFanGA says:

    I’d be happy with Isiah Pacheco in the 7th or as UFA. I think he could be a solid 3rd down back for the Hawks.

  250. Hawk Finn says:

    Listening to Pete Caroll on NFL Network, but since I’m no cha you’ll have to excuse my lazy notes:

    1. Didn’t think Cross would be available, excited about pass blocking experience
    2. Fortunate to get two athletic offensive lineman to compete with first group
    3. Bryant a leader, award winner, championship player; Woolen’s physical attributes, athleticism, and massive potential appealing
    4. Sounds like QB competition is and will remain between Geno and Lock. Despite multiple pushes by Eisen, it doesn’t sound like they plan on adding to the QB room right away
    5. Excited about adding Walker with Rashaad

    • Rob Staton says:

      They’re very much leaving the door open for Baker Mayfield, is my reading of all of this

      It’s a staring contest with Cleveland

      Browns are a joke. Embarrassingly run.

      • HotRodSancho says:

        What are the odds the Browns get desperate enough to pull a Brock Osweiler trade where they have to give a future mid round draft pick for a team to take his contract?

      • Big Mike says:

        Have been since they came back into the league in ’99

      • Jerry says:

        Regarding Mayfield, what would even be a realistic trade now? The only teams that would be interested in him are teams without an established stater. You wouldn’t want him as a backup given his tendency to say incredibly stupid shit to the media. Unfortunately, Seattle is the only option.

        Other than the Hawks, who else fits that criteria? The other teams that might have had any interest at all – PIT, CAR, WAS – have selected QBs in the draft.

        I’d think they’d have to include picks to get any team to take on his contract. I’d have to think the most likely outcome is that the Browns will simply cut him.

  251. KennyBadger says:

    What’s your thought on baker Rob?

  252. Seahawk_Dan says:

    Rob, do you take a flier on Carson Strong in the 7th if still at 229?

  253. Rob Staton says:

    Andy Reid on the TV talking about food LOL

  254. Brett in AZ says:

    Leaving aside the QB for a moment, the offense has collected some weapons. And speed:

    Rashad Penny
    Kenneth Walker

    DK Metcalf
    Tyler Lockett
    Dee Eskridge

    Noah Fant
    Will Dissly

    Even the tackles have speed. And that’s not even counting Carson, who’s still up in the air.

  255. Jordan says:

    Laying the foundation for a favourable landing for the QB of the future in 2023. Tackles, two pro bowl WRs, decent TE group, talented runners.

    Two 1s and two 2s in 2023 allows you to be aggressive in pursuit of that QB.

    Really really glad that they didn’t use a valuable pick on an underwhelming QB prospect.

    Mina screaming for them to spend 40/41 on Willis – embarrassing

    • Jordan says:

      And I’m not convinced that Denver is a playoff team. Which would put their picks in the first 18 of each round.

      • UkAlex6674 says:

        I’m not sold on them making the playoffs either..

      • TomLPDX says:

        The AFCW will most likely send 3 teams to the playoffs next year. Denver is pretty solid now so I wouldn’t count them out at all.

    • Big Mike says:

      Mina is usually better than that

      • HotRodSancho says:

        She normally is. Think Seahawks analytics twitter who for some reason thinks drafting rb’s before the 4th round is the stupidest thing ever has melted her brain.

        For real though. Look at the top rb’s in the league. They are primarily 2nd round picks. If you want one, you draft them where we took Walker. Chris Carson was an outlier.

        • Tien says:

          Plus, I don’t think Chris Carson has ever been considered a top RB in the league. And add in the fact that he’s yet to play a full season, in college or the NFL, and Chris Carson is not really as good of an example of why teams don’t need to pick RBs higher as people think.

  256. Catharsis50 says:

    Where can I find Charles Cross TEF score on the site?

  257. MarkinSeattle says:

    I wouldn’t bother me if we snagged Austin and Coan in the seventh round. Although if we like Coan we could probably attract him as an UDFA given the opportunity at QB.

  258. Jonas says:

    Funny how some expert analysts all of a sudden always thought Pickett was the best QB in the draft. “Who is Mel Kiper anyway!?”

    My first, quite random, post here. Ive followed and read for years. Rob, appreciate your hard work and integrity. It is amazing to read all your well thought articles, evaluations and thoughts. Definately one of the real experts, tho you probably wouldnt even call yourself one.

    And great draft for once. Really like what Pete (and maybe mostly John) is doing with their ressources for once.

  259. Seahawkwalt says:

    Zander Horvath would be great

  260. SoCal12 says:

    Rasheed Walker must be interviewing like doodoo to not be picked yet. One of the bigger gaps between projections and result this draft.

  261. Seahawkwalt says:

    Do we take a chance on Justyn Ross?

    • MarkinSeattle says:

      Pete and John love speed at WR over height, only one or two drafted WR have not had better than 4.5 speed, and those two were at 4.51 and 4.55. I don’t think they will have any interest in Ross.

  262. cha says:

    Russ called it LOL

    Russell Wilson
    Kenneth Walker III.

  263. Sea Mode says:

    Corbin K. Smith

    Fun fact about new #Seahawks EDGE Tyreke Smith: He had the second-highest pressure rate in college football among qualified defenders during the 2020 season per PFF. (22.3%)

  264. HawkfaninMT says:

    What are the red flags on Kevin Austin? Geez… seems like a steal at this point

    • HawkFanGA says:

      I agree. I would be happy to add him to the WR mix at this point.

    • MarkinSeattle says:

      Simply lack of production and poor WR skills including an inability to get off press man coverage. The latter is due to being really poorly coached as all the ND receivers had similar issues.

      He was also suspended as a Sophomore for smoking weed but hasn’t had any disciplinary issues since.

  265. Jerry says:

    There are several interesting names still available:
    C Donovan West
    WR Kevin Austin
    OT Obinna Eze
    C Alec Lindstrom
    OT Thayer Munford
    DT Haskell Garrett
    CB Jaylen Watson
    S Smoke Monday
    OT Kellen Diesch
    OT Rasheed Walker
    QB Carson Strong
    WR Justyn Ross
    QB Jack Coan
    QB Kaleb Eleby
    CB Tariq Castro-Fields

    Thats more players than there are picks between now and #233.

  266. Robbie says:

    Haskell Garrett, Alec Lindstrom, and Smoke Monday are a few names I’m interested in the 7th!

  267. TCHawk says:

    I also like Mike Rose, LB.

  268. Scot04 says:

    Here we go 2 picks in the top 12

  269. HotRodSancho says:


    What’s the consensus on the dude from Arizona State?

  270. JimQ says:

    There should be a bunch of interesting UDFA’s to add to an already decent draft.

  271. Gaux Hawks says:

    Max Borghi


    Kevin Austin Jr.

  272. TrenchWarfare says:

    There’s the WR pick.

  273. Jerry says:

    The three players who make the most sense for the Hawks: Carson Strong, Donovan West, Kevin Austin.

  274. Big Mike says:

    Both networks to commercial right at our pick. Grrrrrr!!

  275. Big Mike says:

    Bo Melton, WR Rutger
    4.34 40yd Speed kills

  276. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Well there’s our WR. Surprised it’s not Austin but Melton is a decent prospect.

  277. SoCal12 says:

    Brett Kollmann had this Bo guy in the first round for whatever it’s worth lol.

  278. Sea Mode says:

    Huh, a WR. Guessing it might be hard to convince any WRs to sign as UDFA with Lockett, Metcalf, and a R2 pick ahead of them on the depth chart.

  279. God of Thunder says:

    I’d go with Pacheco … pick up a QB if one is wanted as UDFA

  280. Sea Mode says:

    Already back on the clock! (Stream gotta catch up)

  281. Palatypus says:

    Bo Melton

    Bench Press

    Vertical Jump
    Broad Jump
    3 Cone Drill

  282. Big Mike says:

    OK John, you said you were gonna draft a QB from now on. Here ya go.

    • TrenchWarfare says:

      Do you really take a GM’s word as sacred in an industry where intel and smokescreens are standard practice? Got some advice for you…

      • Big Mike says:

        It was mostly sarcasm man but do carry on

        • TrenchWarfare says:

          Been reading your comments for a while. You regularly accuse PC and JS of lying so forgive me if I take you at your word.

          • mtpgod says:


          • Big Mike says:

            There’s no logic in your comment. If I accuse them of lying, why would you think I meant that he was serious this time?
            If you got a bone to pick with me, why not just say it outright?

            • TrenchWarfare says:

              Sure. How about you hold off on bringing Jamal Adams up every time Rob posts a new article? And don’t call other posters “bastards” if they’re critical of you and BobbyK for being relentlessly negative and, in BobbyK’s case, toxic?

              Other than that, I hope life treats you well and our Seahawks have an amazing run over the next few years.

              • Big Mike says:

                I’ll bring Jamal Adams up whenever I want until and unless Rob tells me to back off. This ain’t your blog. Worst trade in the history of the franchise and top 5 worst in the history of the NFL. Rob himself mentioned on the first night that the Eagles paid for AJ Brown half of what Seattle paid for Adams.
                If you’ll look back at all the draft threads you’ll also see I have been extremely positive about this draft. I’m positive when I think it’s warranted. Great draft!
                And when someone like you runs a good poster like BobbyK out, I’m gonna say what I think. You don’t like it, I don’t care.

                • TrenchWarfare says:

                  No worries, just responding to your request for me to “say it outright”. Post whatever you feel like but this is a community and everyone gets tired of the guy constantly ranting about something that cannot be changed.

                  Note that I never said a single thing to BobbyK so save your anger for those who did. Again, I have no personal animosity toward you. Best wishes to you and the family.

              • D-OZ says:

                Warfare you are the one who is sounding a little toxic.

                • TrenchWarfare says:

                  I don’t think you understand the definition of the word. But you’re completely entitled to your opinion.

  283. Henry Taylor says:

    Really like Bo Melton in this range

  284. CaptainJack says:

    Melton… 4.34 guy. Looks like an immediate upgrade over… Penny Hart. Can he be more than just a guy at the back end of the roster?

  285. cha says:

    Seahawks’ interest in Baker Mayfield was “lukewarm at best” according to Rapsheet.

  286. CaptainJack says:

    OK ok. WR position looking more interesting going into camp.

  287. Sea Mode says:

    Lol. What is up with doubling up on each position?

    Maybe it’s just BPA and happens to fall that way.

    • Graduate says:

      Yeah, at this point I think you just take the players that you think 1) may have a shot to make your roster; and 2) at a position that you think you will struggle to recruit in UDFA.

      • Roy Batty says:

        Special teams.

        Speedsters, returners, tacklers.

        If the prospect pans out to be more than that, what a bonus.

  288. Scot04 says:

    Back to back receivers. Wasn’t expecting that

    • MountainHawker says:

      Why a second wr…take a shot on Strong.

      • Sea Mode says:

        Because a QB will sign as priority UDFA. No WR will.

      • Henry Taylor says:

        The fact that Strong hasnt been taken probably means the medical on him is pretty bad.

      • Jerry says:

        That was my thought as well.

        Fingers crossed he doesn’t get picked. He’d be a nice priority UDFA, and I’d imagine the Hawks would be an enticing opportunity.

      • Scot04 says:

        Fun to watch great skill set. You will like him.

      • mtpgod says:

        Yea of all places udfa’s are going to want to go, Seattle would be landing spot number one. I bet we get Eleby and Coan udfa.

  289. JimN says:

    Rob, your horz board is amazing, even caught the last 2 WR! ANd in the right order! Thanks again for a great season and great job. ALready looking forward to next year!

  290. Brett in AZ says:

    Another burner.

  291. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Wow another WR. Totally unfamiliar with him

  292. Big Mike says:

    Melton pick sounds a lot better than Young pick.

  293. SoCal12 says:

    Are we drafting leverage to try and negotiate down DK’s contract? /Tinfoil hat

  294. Jerry says:

    Well, I guess there had to be at least one “whosthatnow?” picks.

  295. Sea Mode says:

    Rob, here’s confirmation on your deduction about the “vanished” trade up:

  296. TomLPDX says:

    Time for the UDFAs! Should be interesting this year. Lots of talent still available.

  297. JJ says:

    Time to start working the phones for undrafted players

  298. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Wow what an athlete!

    Dareke Young
    32-5/8 arms
    10-1/8 hands

    4.44 – 40yd
    1.54 – 10yd split
    4.19 – 20yd short shuttle
    6.88 – 3 cone
    37″ – vert
    11-02 – broad
    22 – bench reps

  299. John Roberts says:

    The double-dipping was epic.

    • Blitzy the Clown says:

      Double dipped at OT, DE/EDGE, CB and WR

      • KSB says:

        Really like this draft and look forward to seeing how they develop on this team for the rebuild.

        I feel they addressed some key positions. I just wish we could have one more pick (Tindall) and added a LB. That said, I feel this way after every year. If we could of had 1 more pick.

        When Pete said he was drafting for next year. I took it as the Hawks weren’t drafting a QB in this year’s draft. But Pete speaks in riddles and while I have a hard time figuring them out. I think I got this one though. At least I was hoping that is what he meant.

        As mentioned and I was thinking this last night after rd 2. The Hawks took all guy’s with solid character and leadership. No rolling the dice on a head case or possible problem child. There were a couple of guys
        That I wanted and others here liked as well and wondered why we passed on them. Now I think we know. The Hawks wanted guys that are all in types.

  300. Gaux Hawks says:

    We’ll done, Rob! Thank you for this generous space and incredible content, just simply awesome.

  301. SebA says:

    Quite disappointed with the lack of LB in this draft for us, does this mean Cody Barton is starting next year?! 🥴

    • CaptainJack says:

      It’s as simple as: we had a lot of holes and gaps in the roster and not enough picks to fill them all.

      • Peter says:

        Agreed. Can’t win them all. Barton is not my guy but feels like there’s improvements at a lot if other places.

    • Hughz says:

      Yeah it’s interesting. I wonder if that was by design or just how the board fell and they took the better value picks.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Yup, probably.
      Brooks and Barton ILB.
      Taylor, Nwosu, Mafe, Smith at OLB rotation.

    • Brett in AZ says:

      Let’s see what happens in the coming days/weeks. These picks allow for SEA to make some cuts/trades/signings if they want. There are a few vets on the bubble that might not get re-signed or make the cut outta camp.

      • AlaskaHawk says:

        I wonder if Mofe might play a little outside linebacker and defensive end. He’s the right size for linebacker.

    • WallaSean says:

      They told Smith he’s an outside LB

    • DougM says:

      Did they even bring any linebackers for a visit?

  302. Peter says:

    Fans a little confused about Dareke Young….seattle puts big time value in special teams. I 100% expect to see him get reps as a gunner. Loves to block and mix it up.

  303. CaptainJack says:

    I was pretty considered about our receiver depth. I am not an Eskridge or a swain fan. Young and Melton at least add some interest to the backend of that group, which was looking miserable before the draft.

  304. Palatypus says:

    Well here is your core for the next three years.

    Charles Cross T
    Boye Mafe DE
    Kenneth Walker RB
    Abraham Lucas T
    Coby Bryant CB
    Tariq Woolen CB
    Tyreke Smith DE
    Bo Melton WR
    Dareke Young WR

  305. Fredo says:

    We just need 2 of the 3 ILBs of Rose, Sanborn and Hansford to make it to UDFA. It would be a pretty easy pitch.

  306. JimN says:

    Brought up earlier that any WR USFA’s may shy away from Seattle because of our existing dudes. WHat a great draft. PC/JS did a bang up job, although i suspect they had a copy of Rob’s horz board in their hip pocket!

    • Brett in AZ says:

      And on a similar note, they might have more luck than normal with ILB and IOL UDFA’s this year.

  307. 805Hawk says:

    Okay, so I’m not a fan of PC/JS, but I have to admit that they nailed this draft. They did pretty much exactly what I was hoping they would do. It might be too late to win me back into their fold, but they appear to be making a run at it

  308. SoCal12 says:

    Gonna be really interesting UDFAs. I guess this is where we’re bringing in bodies for QB and Linebacker. Interesting they left the two spots unaddressed.

  309. pugs1 says:

    The war room shot they just showed on ESPN it look like John was looking at a trade card. Maybe they get back in?

  310. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I wonder if we’ll see them pursue Coan (or Strong/Eleby) as a PUDFA.

  311. TheoP says:

    Thanks for a great draft weekend Rob. And everyone in the comments.

    As a UK fan who married into Seahawks fandom this site has taught me so much about how to appreciate the game.

    And to anyone who does not understand or appreciate what Rob does…you have a BBC journalist providing free detailed content on a daily basis. Rob’s site should speak for itself but we are all getting the gold standard of UK journalism giving us excellent analysis, bask in it. You don’t work for the BBC by accident.

    *Ignore twitter

  312. Jerry says:

    Lets all raise a glass to Rob! Excellent content. Thank you for all the hard work.

  313. TrenchWarfare says:

    Massive thanks to Rob for the endless energy, the sleepless nights and the love he puts into the blog every day. His horizontal board lined up really well with what the Hawks did in this draft and gets the first stage of the rebuild in place.

    Many years ago, Rob’s laptop died and there was a great swell of support for funding a new one for him. If I recall correctly, Rob politely declined. Perhaps next year, we can all come together and cover the cost of getting Rob to either the Senior Bowl or the combine. The interviews alone would be worth it and the connections Rob could make in person could fuel SDB’s evolution.

    Again, thanks Rob for all of your hard work.

  314. GoHawks5151 says:

    Thanks for all the work Rob! Thanks for the energy SDB. What a great draft season. Very exciting times. By December we may be wanting to rip our hair out so enjoy the afterglow of the draft. Certainly a few foundational players here. It’s a long summer so enjoy the new guys and the hope they bring

    • Peter says:

      Let’s be real. You’re right. Next year looks like it might be rough. Very glad they are giving whomrver a solid habd with the tackles and Walker. Adding Fant. Keeping DK. But inside LB looks weak. And Dline looks servicable but nothing to write home about…talking about the big boys up front. Major questions about how safety looks and if the group can stay healthy.

      But I’m really enjoying this draft. 2023 with a big old pile of money and even more picks? Should be right in the thick of it.

  315. Starhawk29 says:

    Anyone read the Connor Orr article on thr qbs this year? He just blamed the league for them falling, saying that coaches are not imaginative enough. The arrogance in that statement is infuriating. Perhaps the fact is instead, that these players aren’t as good as you thought? And meanwhile, the media has ruined the draft for kids like Willis and Ridder by hyping them up beyond measure. Blaming a “lack of imagination” is just a refusal to take on any blame.

    • Palatypus says:

      Conner Orr?

      Hockey player?

    • Roy Batty says:

      I mentioned this earlier, but those camera shots of the deflated, morose QB’s, surrounded by friends and family were horrible to watch.

      • Peter says:

        Rob nailed it. It’s bulls— to have told these guys they were top ten picks let alone first rounders.

    • Peter says:

      Too stupid to read.

      In a league with old style pocket passers, small run and gun guys, and raw as hell Allen at Wyoming and big time SEC qb Burrows both playing nearly as well as each other there’s enough “imagination.”

      Corral should have stayed a year.

      Ridder didn’t show up against AL.

      Willis didn’t better himself by playing down several levels at Liberty and winning with ease instead of being challenged.

  316. Brik says:

    For those talking about what we gave up for Adams, remember we gave picks that were 1 or 2 years away for a guy that still had 2 years left on his rookie contract. The picks would go down a round for the years out, so next years 1st is a 2nd value and 2 years down is a 3rd value. Meaning we gave up a 2nd, 3rd and 4th value. We also had some time before signing him to a monster contract. Now that we are hitting that time where the picks are people are forgetting the actual details. Not to mention, it was 2 years ago. Let’s quit crying and move on.

      “Let’s quit crying and move on”


    • Big Mike says:

      I’m not crying and never have been. I’m angry about it and always will be. If Adams was even average it would be a bit more tolerable. He’s not. He’s been ranked in the 60s for Safeties in the NFL by PFF 2 years in a row. While they aren’t the end all be all, it’s indicative of very poor performance as a Seahawk.
      When he’s quietly cut or not resigned or let go with an injury designation, the franchise will fully move on and so will many of us fans. Until then, he either turns his performance around or many of us wlll continue to be very unhappy with the trade, his performance and all the peripheral stuff like designer coffee cups and the like.

    • Peter says:

      Brik unfortunately whether you are pro or con Adams talk of him will never end unless two diametrically opposed things happen:

      Either he balls out and we all shut up


      He is gone

      No matter how you slice draft value the hawks missed on three players two with five year control and all three total cost is less than Adams in dollars. That he is injured every year and nowhere close to what the team thought he was going to be doesn’t help.

      It just is what it is.

  317. John says:

    Hopefully the Seahawks bring in Jack Coan as an udfa.

  318. Blitzy the Clown says:

    GB taking Zach Tom and Rasheed Walker late is annoying me.

  319. ShowMeYourHawk says:

    I’m watching some of Young’s highlights and am honestly wondering if the club plans on using him out of the backfield like Deebo gets used in SF. He’s got great drive, can cut well and explodes.

    Chiefs getting two good players in round 7 that are high on Rob’s board

  321. JB says:

    Thank you Rob. Really appreciate your draft coverage!

  322. Peter says:

    Hopefully a few more podcasts when Rob recovers before tge season concludes.

    Rob and Jeff

    Tip of the cap once more to Rob for your excellent work on this site. Your efforts are truly appreciated!

  324. HawksGal says:

    Wow! What an amazing draft, so happy right now!

    Rob. Amazing work this year. Thank you for all the effort and time.

    My buddy and I have a draft contest every year, I got 4 of our picks right, and so did he.

    I picked Boye, Abraham Lucas, Bo Melron and Dareke Young. Crazy right…

    • Sea Mode says:

      Nice! Should have entered the “Armchair GM” Challenge over at FieldGulls!

    • Big Mike says:

      Nice, congrats. You pulled out the tie with your friend in round 7.

      • HawksGal says:

        I have Rob to thank for his amazing input and information and time spent keeping us all informed! I had Woolen too on my list and pulled him at the end to make the cut of players.

        The Wr, were all my own research…I was pretty happy to pull out the tie with the last 2 picks.

        Thanks all, heck of a draft!

  325. Seattle Person says:

    Wonderful draft class. The first 5 players are core type players.

    Cross: Starting LT.
    Mafe: Rotational rusher at first and we’ll like to develop into a starter.
    Walker: He can step in to start but he’ll rotate in.
    Lucas: Starting RT.
    Bryant: I think he’s going to be high end CB2. He’s a plug in player.

    The rest are high end, toolsy, developmental types. I dig it.

    *It’s a bummer they didn’t tap into the LB group. It’s a bummer that they lost out on Tom. That would have gone through the roof IMO.

    Hoping for 2 Arizona ST. O-lineman as UDFAs
    West for Center & Diesh OT/G

    Gregg Bell

    GM John Schneider says the Seahawks have already agreed to terms with a quarterback as an undrafted rookie free agent.

  328. Tomahawk says:

    Rob, thanks for another outstanding year of draft coverage. I’ve been a regular reader/listener (though I don’t comment much) since the first year of this site, and I’m always super appreciative of the time and care that you put into this.

  329. clbradley17 says:

    QBs Coan & Eleby can be brought in as UDFAs. How about WR Austin?

  330. Sea Mode says:

    Justin M

    The #Seahawks are signing Framingham State DE Josh Onujiogu, per source.

  331. cha says:

    Andrew Auger
    #Seahawks have signed Quarterback Carson Strong as an UDFA

    This guy is part of the “Sports Addicts Network” and I have no idea what that is, so take with a grain of salt.
