Seahawks Draft Rules. (or trends)
Thu Apr 27, 2017 8:01 am
  • 1- We trade our first round pick more often then not.
    2- The first pick we take will be a Sparq FREAK. (most picks will be while we're on that topic)
    3- We will take a tall athletic Corner somewhere in the 4th-6th round time frame
    4- Just because we have locked in starters it doesn't mean we wont draft a player from the same position
    5- We'll most likely say "Who or What or Why" at some point with a hawks pick

    Feel free to add ones I've missed.

  • A player will be drafted to play a position other than what they played in college.

    Oh thats a good one! But as the years have gone on. And the lack of true Oline talent. the hawks definitely identified a market trend early with spread o lineman

  • Based upon experience with John Schneider and drafts under him, be prepared to have at least one player (usually more) taken that has the experts (and many of us) scratching our heads and saying, "Say What?!?" and scrambling for our pre-draft notes, video clips, etc. -- trying our best to make sense out of it all. Bank on it happening.

    Edit to add: Sorry, I missed your #5 above -- but obviously I completely concur.

    When was the last time we drafted a player and switched him?

  • Actually Farmer first tried out as a WR, then was shifted to CB, then to RB.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Knock out two rules with this one and draft the UConn safety to play CB, backup safety/heir to Kam Chancellor's throne. SPARQ FREAK.
