The Next Great Player Out Of Seattle

In 2013, Byron Maxwell stepped up on defense to fill in for the suspended Brandon Browner. Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and Richard Sherman are just a few from 2012. In 2014, expect a breakout year from one of Seattle’s 4th round draft picks. Cassius Marsh is a player that comes into Seattle with tremendous talent. […]

Seahawks’ RB-by-Committee is a Win-Win Situation

In the past, fans have accused Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell of being too predictable, too bland. But if fans saw this week’s announcement coming, they might be forced to rethink those accusations. Speaking Wednesday night at the Seahawks’ Town Hall event, Bevell told the crowd of fans that the team would be switching to […]

With the 227th pick in the NFL Draft, the Seahawks select…

…FB Kiero Small from Arkansas.  Small is built like a fire hydrant (5’8″, 245 lbs) and distinguished himself as a punishing lead blocker for the Razorbacks.  This move sets the stage for a three-way camp battle for the starting fullback position between Small, Derek Coleman, and Spencer Ware. I think Coleman is still the favorite […]

With the 208th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…FS Eric Pinkins from San Diego State.  Pinkins is this year’s winner of Carroll and Schneider’s annual draft-a-6′+-DB sweepstakes.  Not only is he 6’3″ and 220 lbs, making him one of the biggest defensive backs available in the draft this year, he also runs a 4.45 second forty and surprisingly athletic for his size. Pinkins […]

With the 199th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…their second Conference-USA player in a row, OT Garrett Scott from Marshall.  Scott played tackle in college, but will likely move inside to guard in the pros.  He needs to bulk up a bit and struggles badly with run blocking (he isn’t going to win any strongman contests), but he fares well in pass protection, […]

With the 172nd pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…DT Jimmy Staten from Middle Tennessee State.  He comes from a small program, so there are legitimate concerns about whether he can show up versus NFL-level competition, but on the plus side he appears to have the size and quickness to play both 3-tech DT and 5-tech DE. Clinton McDonald’s 3-tech DT spot on the […]

With the 132nd pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…LB Kevin Pierre-Louis from Boston College.  Pierre-Louis is reportedly a bit of a ‘tweener — a bit small for a linebacker (6’0″, 232 lbs) and not quite fast enough for a safety (although that last bit may not be true — I’ve seen him listed as having forty times in the mid-4.4 second range) –  […]

With the 123rd pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…WR Kevin Norwood from Alabama.  Once again, Schneider appears to have snagged a potential diamond on day three.  Norwood is 6’2″ and has respectable speed (~4.44 seconds in the forty), but more importantly he has a reputation as a clutch receiver with great hands and impeccable route-running.  The guy has a brain on him, too […]

With the 108th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…DE Cassius Marsh out of UCLA.  Judging by his size (6’4″, 252 lbs) and relatively quick burst off the line, Marsh looks to have the exact sort of ‘tweener build that Carroll prefers in his Leo defensive ends. Interestingly enough, he has some experience playing both inside and outside positions on the defensive line, so […]

With the 64th overall pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…offensive tackle Justin Britt out of Missouri.  Britt has the prototypical height, weight, and wingspan you look for in an NFL OT, so he isn’t limited to playing guard in the pros.  He appears to be better in pass protection than he is as  a run blocker, he’s got decent quickness, and he has a […]

With the 40th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…another trade, this time with the Lions.  In exchange for the 8th pick in the second round and the 6th pick in the fifth round (146th overall), Seattle receives the 13th pick in the second round (45th overall), the 11th pick in the fourth round (111th overall), and the 12th pick in the seventh round […]

With the 32nd pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…a trade with the Vikings.  Yay, woohoo, etc.  Trading out of the first round is not the sexiest move a team can make, but in Seattle’s case it makes a lot of sense, as they had just six picks headed into this year’s draft. In exchange for the 32nd overall pick in the first round, […]

NFC West: First-Round Predictions

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to prime time. That time is fast approaching. These days, the months of hype and scrutiny leading up to this point almost outweigh the event itself. Hell, it even got its very own feature film. If nothing else, one has to stand back in awe of the marketing ability of the […]

What We Know, and What We Can Guess – Seahawks Draft 2014

“With the 32nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks select…” This would be a good bet for Vegas to put out there because no one would win. Look back at the last few drafts and it’s easy to see why. In 2011, we selected James Carpenter. In 2012, it was Bruce Irvin. […]
