Seahawks fans waited on pins and needles last night, Day 1 of the increasingly-long NFL Draft, but to no avail as John Schneider traded out of the first round yet again. Luckily for the ‘Hawks, the first round of the draft set up just about as well as they possibly could have hoped, with offensive skill position players dominating the early portion of the night. This left a plethora of quality players on the board for Day 2, on which the Seahawks now hold six (!) selections. With a better idea of where/how many picks Seattle will be making for the rest of the draft, here is what I could come up with for a fresh new set of predictions based on Coach Carroll’s famed #SeahawksDraftClues.
Buckle up, ‘Hawks fans, tonight is about to be quite the ride. Continue reading →
The big day has arrived! With the 2017 NFL Draft set to kick off in less than an hour, the mock drafters and prognosticators must sit back and watch the magic happen. For purposes of not going insane trying to predict every single trade, I’ll break down each prospect by round.
So, without further ado, based on my research over the last year and Pete Carroll’s wonderful #SeahawksDraftClues, I present to you my final 2017 Hawk Mock! Enjoy, and thanks for reading!

With just three days remaining before the NFL Draft officially commences, the Seattle Seahawks are in a good position to add significant depth for the upcoming season. Rumors are swirling for just about every team in the league, but for now we’ll break down five of the potential ‘Hawks targets in each round, including UDFA. Continue reading →
With less than a month to go before the 2017 NFL Draft gets underway, some of the final preparations are being made that will determine how each team’s draft board eventually looks. Information can be scarce at times but as we learn more about which prospects are visiting which teams, etc, we can gain a better understanding as to who may end up in a particular uniform. I’ll likely be putting out a few more mocks leading up to the draft, but here’s another edition of the Hawk Mock for you, version 5.0! For easy reading purposes, I’ve broken this mock up by round, even though Seattle doesn’t currently possess picks in every one just yet. Continue reading →
As the final whistle sounded in Atlanta and the 2016 postseason officially sputtered to an end for the Seattle Seahawks, the countdown began on roster preparations for the 2017 campaign. Continue reading →
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!

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.
