Hawk Mock: Inaugural 2018 Edition

Welcome back, folks! As you know, it’s important that I go months without posting an article, though this time I can attribute some of that to my NFL Draft work as a contributor over at Fansided. I’m having a great time and enjoying pumping out draft content on a regular basis.

Here, though, is where I get to be team-specific with an the first 2018 edition of the Hawk Mock! Following the 2016 Draft, I did a similar piece previewing players for the 2017 Draft and managed to luck into several players who were later identified as targets for Seattle.

John Schneider and company have shuffled their upcoming draft picks quite a bit since the beginning of the season, through several minor trades as well as the huge additions of Sheldon Richardson and Duane Brown, which cost them several high-round selections.

I fully expect to see Seattle trade down from wherever their first round selection in 2018 lands, as well as address some of the large gaps between picks that they currently have. As a result, I’ve come up with a few potential trade scenarios that could help them fill said gaps.

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 →

Hawk Mock: Day 2

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 →
