Hawk Mock: Still-Too-Early Edition

2016 third-rounder CJ Prosise has already made a big impact for Seattle. Who’ll be next in 2017?

Did you forget about me? It’s completely understandable if you did! It turns out not writing causes just as much anxiety as actually writing, so 15 Xanax and four shotgunned Mountain Dews later, I am here and ready to finally start getting back into the swing of things at The Armchair Times.

I spent a good deal of time and energy last year into researching and prognosticating on who the Seattle Seahawks would be targeting for their 2016 draft class and I’m happy to report that this year, I’ll be doing the same. In my last article that came out immediately after the draft, I listed a handful of interesting prospects in the 2017 class. Now, with the college football season in full swing and a bevy of Seahawks scouting intel, here is a much more narrowed focus idea of players the ‘Hawks may have high on their draft board. Seeing how Seattle likes to load up on picks via trade and it’s unclear exactly where their selections could end up being, I’ve broken down prospects who I believe could fit by round. Enjoy!

Hawk Mock: Way-Too-Early 2017 Edition

Pete Carroll, John Schneider

With just over 24 hours gone since the Seattle Seahawks put a bow on their 2016 draft class, one that included shoring up the offensive line and taking a bevy of running backs, it’s time to look ahead to next year’s class of 2017. Of course, it’s far too early to have an clue about the direction with which John Schneider and company will go in the draft next year, but here’s a list of some players that you’d be foolish to not keep an eye on over the course of this next draft cycle.  Continue reading →

After much anticipation, the Seattle Seahawks did what just about everyone expected them to do by trading down from #26 to the final pick of the first round at #31 on Day 1 of the 2016 NFL Draft. And though the reviews of their top pick OT German Ifedi of Texas A&M are anything but stellar, perhaps deservedly so, the ‘Hawks now enter the rounds that have been very good to them in the Pete Carroll-John Schneider era.  Continue reading →

Hawk Mock: The Final Board

TJ GREEN

The moment is finally here. Just about an hour from now, the NFL Draft will get underway in Chicago and we’ll get our first glimpse into how teams finish their preparations for the 2016 season. After the three-day event comes to a conclusion, grades will be thrown around left and right, all in the hopes that it will give a clearer picture as to which franchise will host the Lombardi Trophy next February.

Hawk Mock: DT Chris Jones

With less than two weeks remaining until the start of the NFL Draft, the speculating and prognosticating are nearing a fever pitch. We’ve already seen the very top of the draft re-shuffled after the Los Angeles Rams took the express lane to Highway .500 by snatching (and giving up a whole lot in the process) the first overall pick from the Titans. There’s a good chance even more wheeling and dealing will take place inside the top ten, albeit likely on draft day itself, which will once again alter the course of the three-day event.  Continue reading →
