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, […]

How Heavy Is Run-Heavy?

Before I dive in to the article, I just want to welcome you all to the new and improved Seahawk Addicts!  The folks over at Bloguin have been slaving away on this overhaul to their blog network for months, and the result is a leaner, meaner site designed to load faster and run better than […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/20)

After a couple of days of relative inactivity (at least as far as the news wire is concerned), the Seahawks are making some moves today.  First off, the team has signed offensive lineman Steve Schilling.  Schilling can play both guard and tackle and has the potential to develop into a solid player — the Seahawks […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/17)

The gang is back together, at least in the special teams meeting room.  The Seahawks re-signed kicker Steven Hauschka today, rewarding him for his consistency with a 3 year, $9.15M deal.  The $3.05 average yearly salary makes Hauschka the 11th highest paid kicker in the league — it's a fat chunk of change, sure, but […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/16)

Good afternoon everyone, we have just two quick news items for you so far today.  First off, Henry Melton has left Seattle without a contract and is headed to Dallas.  That doesn't mean he won't still sign with the Seahawks, but it does seem to indicate that he wasn't wowed by their contract offer.  I […]
