If we were getting the young Brandon Jacobs sure but we aren't he is pretty old i would rather draft somebody.

I think the Hawks have a DE in mind and if he is still there at 12 they will take him. My gut tells me there is a 80% chance they will trade down and pick up another 2nd round pick.

If we do have 3 picks in the first 2 rounds i could see DE, LB, and TE being drafted. I think they will wait on a guard, RB, WR until the later rounds, unless one player that is high on their draft board is available.

My thing is we try and trade down or want to trade down all the time but it's just so hard to. Easier if you have pick 4-7 in my eyes.

what do you guys think it would cost to aquire Johnathan Stewart from the Panthers? he would be the perfect compliment for Lynch, although i agree that the seahawks need a new "speed" RB sooner or later, Washington regressed this year


I'm thinking maybe a 4th rounder, maybe a 5th.


what about a trade like

future 4th round pick 2013 to CAR for RB Johnathan Stewart and a 2012 6th.

Seattle would get the compliment for Lynch who is also a great reciever. Seattle could still choose to adress the speed RB spot in the draft (miller, wilson, hillman, james) and has the best stable of RB's in the league

just a thought, since green ellis signed with the Bengals, would the Pats be interested in trading up if Richardson was available at 12? The Pats have a TON of draft picks and seattle would surely benifit from the trade!

Been watching Jonathan Stewart against the Saints for a while. He'd be a hell of a get. Be cool to have him back in the Northwest again, too.

my updated 2012 mock draft WITHOUT the seahawks making any trades:

#76 MLB Micayl Kendricks (even with hawthorne resigned, they can move one or the other to OLB)
#106 RB Chris Polk (perfect compliment to Lynch, could change on whether or not the hawks trade for Stewart)
#169 DE Brandon Lindsey PITT (LEO DE, can get to the QB)
#207 QB Russell Wilson WISCONSIN (project QB behind Jackson and Flynn)
#208 CB Cliff Harris OREGON (pete takes a flier on a guy that was projected as a first round pick before issues with the law, is a very good KR)

This would be an AWESOME draft. I have my doubts about Coples, but he's probably the most talented D-Lineman in the class. Sanu's stock is dropping, but he could be a dependable possession style WR for Flynn/Jackson. Kendricks is probably gonna be an OLB in the pros I imagine. Once Hawthorne is re-signed either of them could play all of the LB spots, though. Polk from the UW, haha, he could definitely be had here. Stock down post Senior Bowl. I feel really bad for Russell Wilson. If he was 6'2", he'd be drafted early in Round 1. Cliff Harris...ewww...

Marshawn Lynch became a $31 million man earlier this offseason and now he’s going to work with the six million man.

KING-5 TV in Seattle is reporting that Lynch has signed on to play a role in a movie that also stars Lee Majors, who played Steve Austin on television’s The Six Million Dollar Man in the 70s. The film is not about a Skittles-loving running back who occasionally slips into Beast Mode when running the football. It’s called Matt’s Chance and, per the report, it’s about “a mid-20-something cowboy who’s betrayed by his girlfriend” before slipping into a downward spiral.

The movie also stars Gary Busey, Margot Kidder (a.k.a. Lois Lane from the original Superman movies) and Edward Furlong of Terminator 2 fame. There’s no word on when filming will be completed or when the movie is expected to be released.

For the sake of the team’s future, someone with the Seahawks might want to reach out to Lynch to make sure he doesn’t spend too much time soaking up wisdom in Busey’s trailer during the shoot. That would not be a good move for his future as a running back or an actor.

Very good trade for both... What do you guys think about Kahlil Bell from CHI? He played us when Forte was out. He is a Right of Refusal Restricted FA. With CHI just signing Bush, they might let him walk...

Seattle4Ever
03-31-2012, 12:10 AM
Eh, I think Bell is a pretty damn good backup. He filled in pretty well for Forte, but I'm not sure if we need a slashing speed back, bruiser back, or combination.

Washington is nearing the end of his better playing days so maybe we could get Bell, draft a speedy back, and either let Leon go this year or next year. Not a big fan of Forsett anymore besides pass pro (which he did not excel at last year) and getting draws for long gains (which are usually just on 3rd and long and don't result in first downs).

I can't believe I didn't remember this, but we do have Vai Taua is still on the roster. He's 5'10", 225lbs and has good receiving hands. My guess is we go late rd and try to work with what we have

Hawthorne is an interesting case. I personally like the guy, he's a effort guy. His lingering injuries will start to mount and he'll be Tatupu 2.0.

I'm thinking that we are taking LB in the draft. The Rookie will push Hill for the job if Hill returns.

Goff is a good athlete, but has had injury problems. But if the price was right, why not take a flier on him. We are EXTREMELY thin at LB.

Jerome Simpson got busted for a felony drug charge. He is athletic, but I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole!

Deuce could be a cheap signing. He is a nasty player that Cable would probably like. Hawks can never have too much depth on the O-line!

04-04-2012, 10:25 PM
There are tons of LB's in this draft. Just because Kuechly is the media darling at MLB doesn't mean he's even the best at the position on the Hawks' board, and certainly doesn't mean they view him as the best value. I doubt they ever had plans to re-up Heater unless it was on a short term unguaranteed type of deal. They've had a plan all along. Whether it involves Kuechly remains to be seen, but I guarantee at the very least they haven't put all their eggs in one basket.

NateyB24

What will the Seattle Seahawks do? Separate sources told me today the team hopes to move out of the 12th slot and trade into the later portion of round one, where they will then draft linebacker Donta Hightower. If they can’t move the pick they are seriously considering Hightower’s teammate, safety Mark Barron, at that slot and Kam Chancellor would then move to outside linebacker.

http://www.draftinsider.net/blog/?p=6216

This could just be a smoke screen by Pete and John but why do i get the feeling that Pete would actually experiment with Chancellor at LB?

I agree. If we were at a higher position with a guaranteed player at our hands I could see it, but we don't even know if Kuechly is going to be there. The Seahawks are at the position in the draft where drafting the best player available is usually the better route. I do think he's probably valued as the best on the board, but they probably told Heater he wouldn't be guaranteed a starting job. Our defense doesn't rely on the linebacker core as much as Mike Holmgren's did. I'm not that worried. More worried about our O-line being bad again.

I'm definitely on the OL board. If we can get Decastro first round, then brown 2nd we fill both holes, but the bigger one is filled first. I maybe RB or DB 3rd.

^ we need another DE more then we need an OG, and i think OG can be adressed in FA for the time being (Eric Steinbach, Deuce Lutui) or rounds 6-7 (Lucas Nix, Tony Bergstrom).

top needs right now are :
1)2 starting LB AND depth
2)1-2 DEs
3)back up RB (thru trade (J.Stewart) FA (extremly underrated Khalil Bell) and/or draft (Miller, Polk, Wilson)
4)secondary depth
5)Oline depth
6)WR depth
7)QB

I also wouldn't mind a replacement for Hargrove. I like Red but I think having a quicker guy to get some time there is good to have.

Jason Jones not only replaces Hargrove, but is a dramatic upgrade.

You think a backup RB is more important than a starting OG? And I'm fine with Clemons and Bryant at end right now. At least a lineman 2nd round. Our line was **** last year. And I don't have confidence in MCQuiston as a starter.

The line featured two rookies and two players getting their first starter action. You have to give them a chance to grow. Where is there room for another lineman? Okung, Carpenter, Unger, Moffitt, Giacomini. That's quality and upside. Late round depth if anything at all.

the hawks line was solid last year, especially down the stretch. McQuisitan and jeanpierre provide good depth. One of the big reasons Jackson was sacked so much is cause he held onto the ball so long in the pocket

I completely disagree. We don't need to give time to "grow". We need results. Our rookies need to put up or shut up. Carpenter was HORRIBLE last season. Not rookie bad, but all around bad. He plain out did not have the quickness to block off the edge. He rarely showed good run blocking. I don't expect him to be a pro bowler off the bat, but he needs to earn the starting job. He was given the job last year, and he completely blew it.

A change to guard might be good, and maybe he does turn out to be good, but I don't think we should just rely on having Carpenter playing well. He was worse than Locklear was at any point of his career IMO. That's pretty sad. I hated Locklear.

Oh yeah, and I doubt Kam will move out of the secondary. Pete rely's on the secondary a lot in his defensive schemes. He wants his most talented players in the secondary IMO.

I don't like the Melvin Ingram pick for the record. I think he's going to bust. We'll see though DE is a pretty hard position to scout. You definitely got dicked with Coples and Kuechly getting picked ahead of you :(.

If we were going to re-sign one of veteran LB, it should have been Heater. In training camp, I recall Ken Norton raving about Hill. But with his oft off-the-field problems, they should just cut ties.

At this point, I think our D has regressed. But we'll progress again through the draft.

No, you're right. The Seahawks should abandon their first round pick from last year and draft his replacement in round one this year. Rookie offensive lineman should be pro bowlers in their first seasons. Who needs an offseason these days anyway? Okung made huge strides from his first season to his second, but the game has changed since 2011. We don't have time for that anymore. Let's start another project instead and hope he's an automatic pro bowler.

One of the first things is said was I don't expect him to be a pro bowler right away.:facepalm:

Don't act like we didn't reach for Carpenter in the first round.

Also, Carpenter played in 9 games, and was HORRIBLE on the edge. No way around that. Sure he got better, but those first 3 games were horrid. Maybe you're right, and he comes out solid, but he looked athletically inferior to the competition last year IMO. Same as last year we have a very inexperienced line. We got Omiyale, and I expect him to start (or at least get a lot of snaps). I'm not saying we give up on Carpenter, but he shouldn't be handed another starting job.

The whole point was made based on the idea we could get screwed on not get either Kuechly or Coples. I always think that you should either draft your guys at the position your want, or the best player available. I don't think either Carpenter, or Moffit cemented their hold on a starting position.

The fact they didn't get a full training camp is a good point, but neither did anyone else.

Update at 4:09 p.m.: In fact, Thurmond is expected to begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, which would indicate a setback in his recovery from the injury. If a player is on the PUP list after the final roster cuts, he must miss at least the first six games before being activated.

Too bad. I think they need to draft a CB somewhere in the draft.

Everyone else wasn't a rookie O lineman. Not to mention they played side by side and had been given no chance to gel or learn the system. Offensive line is one of the hardest positions to just walk in and play well.

You complain about Brodie just calling your arguments stupid but you continually make arguments without considering all the factors. Given the FO's track record I think we can expect huge improvements from Carpenter (once healthy) and Moffitt this season.

So you think our O-line is fine, and we don't need anything else?

My draft philosophy is you pick your top guys from the position you need. For example with this years you pick your top LB and top DE (biggest needs IMO). If those 2 guys aren't there you pick the best guy available on the board. You don't reach for someone. You go based off talent.

I'm glad you're the only person in the NFL that didn't think Carpenter was a reach last year Brodie. **** Carpenter thought first round was a reach. He straight up said he didn't expect to go first round.

The Steelers planned to pick Carpenter right after us and I believe the Eagles as well. This was widely reported after the draft. There's a reason the "scouts" working for ESPN and NFLN and CBS aren't NFL employees. Also, each team scouts differently. There were many people projecting Carpenter in the 20's of the first round, which is where the Hawks picked him. You don't find guys as large and powerful as Carp that can move like him. He's special. Just take a look at Robert Gallery running down the field and compare the two. It's night and day (Gallery looks ugly, unathletic, and slow).

Agreed. I reported that on Day 2 of the draft last year. SO many people thought Carimi was a better pick, but he isn't athletic.

The BIGGEST thing about people downing on OL need to realize where the player previously played. Carpenter was a LT at Alabama. Having to learn RT w/ no offseason hurt him BIG time. Re-learning how to plant and anchor with an opposite foot takes time, ESPECIALLY when you weigh 300lbs+. He looked good at LG and IMO that is the best spot for him on this team.

I think the emergence of Giacomini last year really helps our line. That doesn't change the fact we don't have a savvy veteran or even a pro bowler on our line. I think Okung has the potential to be good, and same with Carpenter and Moffit, but how long will that take? Also we need depth still IMO.

Like I said. It's not my first option, but if the best player available is a future star at the guard position, I'm down. Maybe I'm just nervous because the last time we had our "future O-line" was when Holmgren said Chris Spencer, and Sean Locklear were going to be our future for the O-line.

That being said. I don't see what I said being stupid. Can you please always put in your opinion when you disagree. You know I ****ing hate it when someone says "thats dumb" or "face palm". Tell me why, and I'll listen. I always do.

Yeah, I read somewhere the Packers were high on Carpenter also. The only thing that scares me is the way he came into camp. He was extremely out of shape and a little fat. Once he dropped 15 pounds through training camp and first few games, he looked a lot better. Coming off of ACL surgery, I don't think we can put him back at tackle. But I think he could be one hell of a guard.

What do you guys think about trading for Keith Rivers? I have heard rumors that the Giants are interested. I assume the return will be about the same as the Eagles gave up for Demeco Ryans (mid rounder 4-5). This is interesting to me. He is a great athlete and great football player, but has been very injury plagued. I think the way the hawks draft (get great value with each pick), I would rather keep the pick, but wouldn't be mad if we did make the trade.

Hey the Giants are my second team! Locklear is ok. He came out of college with pretty good upside, and never really hit his potential. He had injury problems during his NFL career though.

Hester would be a solid pick up. He never really got his chance running the ball because the Chargers had Tolbert as their short yardage back. Hester would be a great back-up to Michael Robinson and could get some snaps at RB in short yardage situations. Hester is also a good special teams player. This move makes a lot of sense. I have no interest in QB Kevin O'Connell, I like our QB's right now. If a guy like Cousins slips to you in the draft, go for him, but I like where we are at the QB position.

Hey guys! I didn't want to clutter your forum with an outsiders thread so I'll ask in here.

Giants signed Sean Locklear. I saw that he played most of his career with you guys, but I don't know much about him. Is he any good? Can he still start? Why did you let him go last year?

Thanks fellas

He stink's it wasn't really obvious how bad he was until Hutch left and Walter Jones started aging.

The Arkansas Razorbacks have a tough spot to fill: they need to land a head coach to replace Bobby Petrino. They're reportedly "likely" to make a move soon, and they're reportedly swinging for the fences and chasing after current Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.

That's according to 5 News Sports in Arkansas (who, incidentally, has a link to my colleague Chip Patterson's post on Philip Fulmer being tied to the Hogs), who also reports that Carroll turned down Arkansas' offer.

5 News also reports that NFL Network analyst Steve Mariucci contacted Arkansas about their opening.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/18660657/report-arkansas-contacted-pete-carroll-steve-mariucci-about-opening

Why in the world would Pete want to go to Arkansas when he has pretty much full control of a NFL team and is getting payed top dollar.

Plus it doesn't seem like a Pete thing to do.

When I go to the gym to workout, me and a bunch of guys there talk about football a lot, and we start talking about the 2012 season, naturally. They were talking about underrated teams that could make noise, and I bring up the Seahawks, and I tell them about how they're really tough to beat at home, have a great defense against the run, a young and improving secondary, a great run game, an actual QB (no offense to anyone who loves T-Jack), and if Rice and BMW stay healthy all season, they could compete for the NFC West and potentially get a WC spot, and everyone laughs at me....people are stupid :laugh2:

The team he goes to is going to be one that wants to sign him long term. That just doesn't sound like our style. Even though, I do want him on our team, I wouldn't want to overpay him. If he REALLY wants to play here, and is willing to be payed in the area of 8 million a year for 3 years I'd be down. He's still a risk because of injury, but he's guaranteed to give you some production, if he stays healthy. Osi is a game changer as long as he's not a bank breaker.

Osi can pass rush from any position on the d-line. Highly doubtful that Irvin can. Irvin is a pure edge rusher. Look at the Giants, they ran 4 defensive ends all game against the Pats. I don't think there's a better way to beat a high octane offense like that.

The Giants have Tuck, JPP, and Osi. I don't see the Seahawks having Osi, Clemons, and Irvin as a negative. It's still a risk. Osi plays reckless, and will get injured, but you can never have enough pass rush. If we have the same production on defense, and add another 20 sacks we turn from a top 10 defense to a top 3 defense instantly.

Our D-Line is pretttttty set for the time being. Branch was arguably playing at Pro Bowl level last season, as was Mebane, Irvin can get after the QB, Clemons can do the same, and Bryant shuts down the run and affects our whole line. Then you have Jason Jones who can backup Red and get after the QB, but from the inside (which we have lacked).

Osi doesn't intrigue me at all. He is an old rusher with injury problems. He should sign any contract he can with the Giants at this point in his career. I agree with Brodie, it isn't the Seahawk way to invest much into a guy in his 30's. I love our D-line! No need to fix something that isn't broken.

ztilzer31

I think that the amount of money he will want is too much and signing him to a new contract would be expensive. I don't think we'll get him, and I wouldn't want to for too much, but I'm just saying he'd make us instantly better. There's no denying that. He gets a sack a game, and goes for the ball better then any defensive layer I've ever seen, but if he wants a huge contract, and he ain't gonna get it from Seattle.

I mean, he'll be able to move inside too, but really all that does is take time away from our young players. We shouldn't even be discussing this because it won't happen. Name the last old player PC/JS have signed from a different team that played a big role that wasn't a mentor (Gallery).

I already said it wouldn't happen ever but I still think it would be awesome. Why do you think we drafted so many D-lineman this year? The Giants formula for beating the Patriots works, and other team are bound to try it. If he wants a lot of money we won't be able to do it though. The most integral part in beating elite passing teams is pressure up the middle (not off the edge) which the Giants have been able to do by putting Osi and Tuck in the middle (sometimes Rocky bernard... miss him) and having them cross (can't remember what type of play that's called) creating pressure up the middle. Yeah it makes things crowded, but look at the Giants DE. They're crowded in the best of ways at DE.

There's no way in hell you're going to keep Clemons, and Osi happy. And also there is no way in hell you're going to get Osi for cheap, either. He wants to get paid.

I agree. Tape on Jason Jones shows he's great, but he's not an every down player. He gets gassed a lot. I think the position he'll be in (sharing time with Mebane) will be perfect. If all works out our line will be good with or without Osi.

Seattle4Ever
05-02-2012, 10:38 PM
I wouldn't say anyone at the majority positions is "sharing" time with other players. We'll do a lot of subpackages and plugging players in on certain downs and situations.

A positive thing for our defense: Because we lost a lot of our former players (such as Milloy) and others to injury (Lewis) we couldn't run some of our key defenses so we ran our base defense more. This season you'll see us go back to subpackages more often.

I disagree. The Giants use the pass rushers on the edge to make the QB's step up and Chris Canty and Rocky get interior pressure. Tuck has been used inside, but the attribute that helps the Giants the most is speed off the end. Osi is washed up and I wouldn't want him at all.

I picked up a Kam Chancellor jersey. When I ordered it, it said it would be 3-4 weeks until I got it, but then I got it the next business day. They fit way different. I am not a fan of the collar, it kind of comes up a little like a small turtle neck. I am just being nit picky, but it was something I noticed. I still want a gray jersey, I am thinking a Marshawn gray jersey would be sick!

Can you show me a picture? I would really like to see it in person to see how they fit!

There is a picture on this link. You can see the collar standing up a little. It shows the 12 symbols on each side of the neck. They also have a "12" where the tag is.

“Where we want to go is being a physical football team that throws the ball on you to score points but runs the ball to beat you,”

Good article. Love this quote from Cable.

I was very surprised at hour our depth on the offensive line did last season. Hopefully we can keep it up!

did the Hawks sign anyone from their Minicamp? I heard Carroll talk about the DB and Barronn, but anyone else? I would like to see TE Shawn Nelson and TE Cooper Helfet signed, to bring more competition to that spot

I heard Helfet is really standing out, and that Barron is quote obviously the most talented try out at OT.

Flynn was interviewed on 710 today and he said Lynch calls him Antonio :laugh:

Is that a reference to something or does he just completely not know his name? :laugh2:

Don't know Flynn asked him why he called him that and Lynch said that he thought he looked like an Antonio.

What day did you order yours? I ordered mine April 26th and still haven't got it. They haven't even shipped it yet. Pissing me off.

Tampa signed TE Clark today. It's been noted that they are trying to trade Kellen Winslow. Wonder if the hawks go after him if it is for a late pick?

Was surprised that the hawks did not draft a TE this year. Can't think that Carroll would be happy with Morrah and McCoy.

Sign him up. He is a solid TE.

The Seahawks scratched their itch for another tight end today when they traded for Kellen Winslow, who averaged 73 receptions the past three seasons for the Buccaneers.
In exchange for Winslow, the Seahawks traded an undisclosed conditional pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The Seahawks have been looking for a tight end to complement Zach Miller since John Carlson signed with the Vikings in free agency. Miller was signed in free agency last summer.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Winslow was a first-round draft by Cleveland in 2004 and caught 219 passes in four seasons with the Browns, including a career-high 89 in 2006. He also had his career-best in receiving yards (1,106) with the Browns in 2007, when he was voted to the Pro Bowl.
For his career, he has 437 receptions for 4,836 yards and 23 touchdowns. Winslow caught 75 passes last season.
Winslow, who will turn 29 in July, is the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow.

Request received, and answered.

I would have rather had Shiancoe, but Winslow is good too!

Kellen Winslow is a really, really good player. Can't believe we got him so easily.

Winslow is a fantastic TE. I hoped we would get him when heard Bucs decided to move him, just did not think would actually happen. We should have an easily top 10 offense this year. Dude is a warrior and is yet another big target for whoever our QB ends up being.
