  • Big cap hit if he’s traded.
    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.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    Fans did that when we drafted Wilson and Sherman.

  • I'll be surprised if they don't trade down. And I'll be surprised if they don't take a DE with their first pick.

    I like it when they are as flexible as possible, but I expect another highly focused draft strategy from Schneider. The draft board is his "baby," and he is unlikely to want to deviate from his plan. Staying locked in on the draft board is also a way for Schneider to assert as much control as possible over the process. When they have deviated, it's because Carroll has liked someone better. You can have a hundred minor disagreements over the board. But if they stick with it, then Schneider's hard work and vision are coming to fruition. Whether that will pay more dividends this year is TBD.

  • Cleveland and Buffalo have a grip of picks. Wouldn't be surprised if one of them is in the mix to trade up to 18. A lot of mocks have the Hawks trading down w/Carolina as well. Shoot, I could see Schneider trading down TWICE in the first round and really loading up. And if Lamar Jackson is still on the board at 18, there's a real shot that a team will want to trade up w/us.

  • Seahawks staying in the 1st round after trading Earl to the Pats. Then trading one of the 1st rounders picks for more picks. Drafting Best player available instead of “need”. Need dirties up the evaluation process. They have a whole draft to fill holes.
    The Seahawks surprise people by drafting less players with “red flags” or injury histories. Also drafting players that they don’t expect to switch from defense to offense or vice versa. Advice to them is get Earl out of the conference and screw the cowboys in the process. Earl is all about earl and what he wants. Money is motivating him right now. Seahawks or cowboys doesn’t really matter. Pay is more important. There was L.O.B. before this group. Just not the name. Ken Hamlin was an enforcer and so was lawyer Malloy. Always hope for a better tomorrow, living today, remembering the past and hoping you learned to not repeat the mistakes or experiencing them as badly as the first tim if you have to.

  • They keep a 1st round pick and select LB Leighton Vander Esch.

    If Vander Esch can show something in his rookie year, Wagner can be traded for a king's ransom before his huge new contract extension.

  • The biggest realistic surprise in my mind would be staying at #18 and picking really anyone there. I'm virtually 100% convinced the Hawks are trading down. It's in Schneider's DNA.

    The BIGGEST surprise though? How about trading Russell Wilson ... and/or trading UP to grab a QB? If that were to happen, that to me would provoke this kind of reaction from me (and from a lot of Hawks fans) ...

    I would think he's on the very short list if they get stuck at 18, if he's healthy. Great length and sparq warrior that can play. I think he's an OLB for the Hawks.

    Trade Wags, ? IDK.

    100 to 1 odds for $100 ?? :roll:

    Wishful thinking.


    Isn't suggesting Wilson may be gone the opposite of wishful thinking?

    Yes it is. It's wishing the Hawks to be a 2-win team for ten years.

    GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Traded Down - not a surprise

    Drafted a RB - not a surprise, most said we shouldn't and blasted us after we did, again, no surprise.

    Predition: Perry will be injured most of the year or not pan out, again wouldn't be a surprise.

    SOS - Same old Seahawks lately.

    Obviously the person responsbile for tallent evaluation the led to us picking guys like Sherman, Waggoner, Kam, Earl, Russell...that person hasn't been around for like 4-5 years and it shows. Maybe they should prioritize getting that person back so we have more successful drafts.

    So just like whomever taught you grammar? Also didn't realize you can call a draft a fail after day 1 or 2.

    It set the tone of the same failed thought process that has plagued us the past 5 years. That is why I call it a failure right out of the gate. Would have thought with all the changes this year that the draft might have brought some new approaches.

    When we have no O Line, the RB's get hurt. Why Wilson is even still walking is a mystery to me as many times as he has been hit. As far as Pete and John's optimism, what are they suppose to say, "we blew it"? They may legitimately be excited as they were the past 5 years. They shouldn't have been as it turns out.
