Chad Henne? I do not see him as an upgrade on T-jack. If he is our 2nd string qb and the hawks draft someone in the first 2 rounds, Portis would be out.

If the Hawks can not get anyone better than T-Jack they might as well not bother. Draft Cousins and if T-Jack gets hurt put in Cousins. If Cousins is not ready they can always pick up a cheap veteran QB looking for subsitute work.

apparently bryants contract is only 5 million the first year, so the seahawks still have about 24 million to spend, although that could change

anyway, i think that Henne wouldnt be a bad signing for seattle. They can bring him in on a modest deal that would allow the seahawks to still sign Williams, Lofton, and a couple other moderately priced free agents. Henne would compete with Jackson for the starting spot, and whoever they draft (hopefully Cousins) would sit for a year. I think Henne really underrated.

You can't think of this team like old Seahawks because players around the league certainly don't. Most players in the league under 27 have no idea Kerney was a Seahawk. They know we have Beast Mode embarrassing defenders. They know we have one of the top run D's. They know we had multiple players from our secondary in the pro bowl. They also know we have an owner willing to open his check book for wins.

From what I hear he used the Bills to drive up the price. He and his agent knew they were willing to give him a record setting massive deal right off the bat. He goes get's that then shows it to other teams with no actual intent to sign with the Bills.

I think the Buffalo trip may have set the table for Mario when the owner says that the team is committed to making him the highest paid defensive player in the league (sorry, heard it on Sirius so no link). Now he know's that every team has to feel they need to do the same in order to get him. Chicago and Baltimore both have plenty of cap space to make it happen so it could just be Buffalo playing the role of patsy for an athlete wanting to drive his price up. Given the number of times that Seattle teams have been in that very same role it would be nice to see them be the "beneficiary"...if overpaying for an athlete is a benefit and in this case I think it would be.

Shiancoe is a good TE if he has the right QB. He played with T-Jack in Minnesota, and he had a great season in 2010 when Bevell was the offensive coordinator there. He could be a great addition to the offense, and was probably one of the only Vikings (besides Sidney Rice) that I have ever liked. It makes a lot of sense to go after him.

I don't understand the interest in Jason Jones. I don't feel he fits our scheme very well. I heard Clayton say he is a great 3 technique guy, but we have Mebane for that. He isn't the prototype DE for our D. Maybe the Hawks are just trying to make the Rams over pay for him.

I said this in a previous post. I want Manny Lawson. He is 6'5 240LBS and extremely athletic. Kind of fits the mold of what it appears the Hawks are looking for on Defense. He would be relatively cheap and could fill an immediate hole at linebacker.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks have added needed depth on the defensive line by agreeing to terms with free agent defensive tackle Jason Jones.

The team confirmed the agreement Saturday. Terms of the deal were not announced, but Jones' agent, Mike McCartney, said on Twitter the deal is for one-year.

Jones has spent his first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans where he had 15 1/2 sacks. He was used as a defensive tackle and end last season, and his versatility fits with Seattle's defensive philosophy. The 6-foot-5, 276-pound Jones started 15 games in 2010 and 13 last season.

Yeah I was talking about this with a buddy. I think we should trade our first this year, and a 2nd next year or something like that to a team we think will be crappy like say the Colts for their first rounder next season. Colts are going to suck so we know it will be a great pick, and they could use the 2nd 1st to get another good rookies this season to help Luck. We would have our 1st and the Colts 1st next season or a different team depending on who we make the trade with. We then hope that team has the worst record, or we trade both the firsts to the team that does and take Barkley. Just a thought.

Felt kinda bad for Hawthorne the other day. While he was on a plane to Detroit, the Lions re-signed Stephen Tulloch, so he pretty much went up there for nothing. I expect he'll either sign with the Saints or (more likely) re-sign with the Hawks. Definitely rather have him than Lofton though. Not that Lofton isn't a great inside guy, but Hawthorne's got a higher ceiling, more versatility, and makes more impact plays. Lofton is pretty much pigeon-holed in the MLB spot.

Our FO is doing the same exact thing that we did with Flynn. We're giving him an offer (I assume), letting him look at other teams, and then we'll sign him if he comes back to a modest deal.

Like I mentioned in the "house's mock draft thread", we will try and make a power play with some of these other teams needing to be around our spot to land some highly touted players, but our position of need right now is Hybrid OLB (Leo). Wright could easily fill the inside position in turn we could trade out to pick Nick Perry (perfect mold for Hybrid/ Leo/ OLB) and eventual replacement to Clemons. If and only if we sign Hill back which is a possibility, or we could find that Wagner kid and fill him in at the WS. Now sit back and imagine a defense that looked that scary and fast with major power. This year is still a rebuilding stages and the thought again of having three young LB's manning the D that are all beast gives me chills. Can't wait till the season... Go Hawks!!

Much better then Curry in pass and rush. I would say he could instantly start day 1 and help move our defense into top 5 in all categories. Of course he doesn't make the whole defense but his skill set matches precisely the type of D we run. He would have a hay day with the boys and it would give us to massive LB to cause havoc on some tight ends crushing scrawny RB's and inflicting pain on QB's every game. And did I mention we could move back for this and receive more draft picks...?

So mock drafts say we will take kuechly,coples,ingram do we need a DE anymore from what ive seen we dont anymore(not sure though?) clemons,jones,bryant,meBane is are line so do we take coples if kuechly and ingram are gone or do we move him or do we move clemons to LB about 85% of sites say we take coples and both luke and melvin are gone by are pick?

What do you guys think about Amobi Okoye? Former tenth overall pick and is still young 25 years old. He is a great pass rushing interior lineman. I know it isn't a huge need with Jones and Mebane, but I think he is worth a one year, "Show me what you got contract." You can never have too much depth on the D-line.

If the Hawks were trying to directly replace Clemons, I'd be more open to Perry. He's more of an athlete than a football player though. He plays too high, has trouble turning the corner, has poor balance, and is not a finisher. He's got some upside, but he's not a natural. I think Ray Edwards is his upside.

CHAWKSFLYNHGH
04-06-2012, 01:50 AM
I do believe he has massive upside. Carroll can talk him into and get the best out of him especially if he can utilize him in both DE/OLB formations he is still one heck of an athlete and the size of an OLB for say a year until Clemons moves on and he could go back to his natural spot. Here is his analysis:


Pass rush: Has very good first step quickness and does a nice job in space. Has the footwork, body control and fluidity to quickly change directions. Does a nice job elevating and getting his hands up to knock down passes at the line of scrimmage. Works hard to collapse the pocket with a relentless motor. Brings aggressive playing style on every snap and doesn't quit. Lacks elite size and length -- undersized and can be swallowed by larger blockers.

Run defense: Read/reacts quickly with good awareness and recognition skills to chase down the play from different angles. Understands leverage and does a nice job staying balanced, getting lower than blockers and underneath their pads, usually attracting holding penalties.

Explosion: A quick, flexible athlete with sharp burst off the snap. Shows the natural bend and coordination to dip his shoulder and consistently win the edge. Doesn't always time-up his explosion and isn't a sudden pass rusher.

Strength: Uses his powerful upper body and hands to force his way into the pocket. Does a nice job swatting blocker's hands/arms with his violent, active hands. Struggles to disengage at the point of attack and will never be the strongest on the field -- functional strength is a question mark.

Tackling: Plays smart and disciplined, staying at home and restraining from biting on fakes -- listens and applies coaching. Good hand strength to secure tackles. Lacks ideal arm length, but works hard to wrap and tackle through the ballcarrier.

Intangibles: Projects best as a stand up linebacker in a 3-4 scheme at the next level, but doesn't have much experience in this area and there could be a learning curve -- can he play with his hand on the ground at the next level? Lined up in both the two and three-point stance in college. Has good production on his resume, capping off his career with a strong junior season, leading the Pac-12 in sacks. Has questionable instincts when asked to drop in coverage. Appears fatigued late in games and needs to show better conditioning.

if we trade out hightower,upshaw(not tiny arms but kinda short)
2nd round zach brown,nick perry if he falls,fletcher cox

Dont like Melvin"T-Rex arms"Ingram nfl Olines will chew him up maybe upshaw also

I disagree to an extent. Perry uses his hands very well and like you said, is a great athlete. He got around the corner fairly well and had a never ending motor. He plays with good leverage, but I do agree he will need to play lower to the ground. I see Jason Babin (of the past few years) as a fairly good comparison. One red flag for me is his playing weight was 250lbs and at the combine he weighed in at 270lbs. He still ran very well, but maybe he lost a little quickness. I think he is worthy of a pick in the high teens to lower 20's.

No way we get Decastro and I'm not wanting another safe pick again. I'm just going to go with what Pete and John are doing... The one reason I said Nick Perry because of draft status and where he is projected to go. We are wanting to trade out and we are wanting to do something on defense. Either OLB/DE maybe Safety now?? So whatever we are thinking its going to either make people grumble or say hmmmm I never thought about that... And that's what we have been doing these last two years is wondering. So I will leave it to the guys that know it the best. Go Hawks!! 20 days and counting till my Christmas.

If not Stewart, another RB that would be a good back up to Lynch is Cowboys RB Felix Jones. He is in the final year of his deal, and is the back up RB for the Cowboys. Im guessing his asking price would be probably a 5th rounder (in 2013 draft) or swapping 4th round picks with Dallas. Thoughts??

Jonathan Stewart's asking price would most likely be higher than a 4th round pick I think. And he's probably not available anyway. Carolina traded Mike Goodson to Oakland, so they probably don't want to lose Stewart.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to pick up A big back like Bell at a price that won't cost us much... Plus he did kind of put up some impressive recieving stats against us and has some nastiness to him. So could be a solid option come draft day trade or if we can get him on the discount.

Very well put sir... No team in the past 7 years has drafted a RB in the Top 12 and won the SuperBowl with the exception of NO and let's face it, Reggie Bush wasn't driving that bus.

Last year's draft, the 1st RB was taken at #28. Teams aren't valuing RBs like they used to.

I think he'll get picked up quick. No matter how good he is, he's a risk in the top 10 though. Adrian Peterson is a freak, and that's a bold comparison.

The Giants run game really has been getting bad, and last year was horrible. They got rid of Jacobs for good reason, and if a team like the Seahawks do end up with the option to pick up Trent, I can definitely see a trade to a team like the Gmen. Especially if Kuechly is gone.

The 12th pick is one of those picks that you have to play really smart with IMO. Hopefully you get a guy that falls to you, but if not you should probably try and trade to someone else. What if Tannehill is still left on the board? We could get a team to trade up for him.
