    333: Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Recap

    333: Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Recap

    John Schneider and Pete Carroll went into this year's 2021 NFL Draft with only three draft picks after using their other picks to acquire known talent. Jamal Adams and Carlos Dunlap were acquired in 2020 and are both under contract to remain with the team through 2021. Gabe Jackson was picked up in a trade this offseason with the Las Vegas Raiders to add to the offensive line after the departure of Mike Iupati. However, the Seahawks have never picked fewer than five players in a draft in the entire history of the franchise. But the Seahawks GM only made two trades on draft day and still finished with only three picks.
    First off the board for Seattle was WR D'Wayne Eskridge of Western Michigan. The guys talk about the thought process that may have gone into taking a skill player here rather than improving the offensive line, particularly with some of the top centers still on the board. Outside cornerback depth was a concern coming into this last week, and it's well known the type of corner Seattle likes to draft, so why did the Seahawks take Oklahoma cornerback Tre Brown? Pete Carroll may be adapting to what we're seeing in the NFC West and in the NFL. In the sixth round, the Seahawks traded up for offensive tackle Stone Forsythe. Despite some of his perceived weaknesses, taking him that late in the draft was a "no-brainer," but it also highlighted an area where Seattle tended not to budge on what they looked for in the past. Plus, we look at some of the top undrafted free agents.
    In the second half of the show, we talk about the 49ers selection of Tre Lance with the third overall pick and the decision to trade two future first round picks to make that deal (when maybe they didn't need to). Aaron Rodgers managed to steal the spotlight ahead of the first round, which was almost certainly 100% intentional after what the Packers did to him last year. Do Better call outs go anyone who dragged Russ into the new Rodgers story and to our buddy Gerrad. DK Metcalf gets Better at Life honors along with Dan Hanzus of Around the NFL.

    332: Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Preview (Part 2)

    332: Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Preview (Part 2)

    Back with part two of our discussion as Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog previews some of the defensive players who could be on Seattle's radar. This show kicks off with a look at what might be the team's biggest need overall. If the Seahawks can add a cornerback who matches the caliber or improves upon Shaquill Griffin's rookie season, that would help fans feel a lot better about the defense going into 2021.
    If John Schneider and Pete Carroll break form and address cornerback in the second round, something they've never done, then Rob likes Benjamin St-Juste of Minnesota. He also likes Ambry Thomas out of Michigan. Ifeatu Melifonwu, however, is someone who has been routinely projected to Seattle, but the disappointment of his brother's career has rubbed off negatively when it comes to the Syracuse prospect.
    Considering that there are always special teams needs to fill, safety and linebacker are two areas that shouldn't be completely overlooked. Defensive tackle may not be a need for Seattle with the Al Woods signing, but if teams are overlooking Texas A&M DT Bobby Brown then Rob would be happy to see him land with the Seahawks. We also discuss how defensive end shouldn't be overlooked. Sure they have depth, but if they have someone who can make an impact, they should take a chance even with a limited number of picks.

    Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Preview (Part 1)

    Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Preview (Part 1)

    We're closing in on the 2021 NFL Draft, coming up April 29th, and barring any major moves between now and then the Seahawks won't be making their first draft pick until the 30th. Joining the show this week to preview where the Seahawks could go on offense in the draft is Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog.
    The episode kicks off with a look back at how the Seahawks ended up with only three picks ahead of the draft and the circumstances surrounding the decision to make a big trade for Jamal Adams ahead of the season. That was a move that they wanted to help make an immediate impact on defense, but what is the most immediate need now on offense? Rob makes the case for why the biggest need may not be a player who starts on offense in 2021, but considering the depth at tackle it may be the best time to address a replacement for Brandon Shell for Duane Brown next season.
    There's two areas of the draft that don’t provide much strength and that is at running back and tight end. However, we take a look at some of the players who fit in terms of Seahawks measurements, because they'll be guys who are likely on the team's radar. Closing out the show, we look at a relatively deep receiver class. The problem is there isn't a player who Rob thinks is a clear and obvious fit for what they've liked historically. Maybe Shane Waldron will have some thoughts on a guy he feels could be unlocked in the offense he's bringing to the team this year.

    330: Brandon Marshall says the Russell Wilson saga is over!

    330: Brandon Marshall says the Russell Wilson saga is over!

    It only took about 10 weeks for the discussion about the Seahawks potentially moving on from Russell Wilson to go full circle. It started with Brandon Marshall in late January saying that Wilson was "beyond frustrated" with Pete Carroll. This week he has reported that the relationship between the two have never been better! Marshall said it came down to a meeting between the two that turned everything around.
    Tyler Lockett is set to be with the Seahawks for a lot time, signing a 4-year contract extension through 2025. If he plays out his contract in Seattle, which is another team-friendly deal, we talk about where he'll end up on the list of all-time wide receivers in franchise history. On the defensive side of the ball, Quinton Dunbar won't be returning, but that leaves the door open for a former Seahawks cornerback to make a triumphant return.
    We take a look around the NFC West in the second half of the show as Adam is not buying the hype surrounding Mac Jones going to the 49ers with the third overall pick. The flock comes in with some optimism surrounding the NFL draft despite the Seahawks having only three picks and some reasoning behind the four teams that were listed as possible trade destinations for Wilson. A former landlord and Michael Strahan both earn Do Better callouts this week and Better at Life honors go to the makers of the latest off-road vehicle and to the Seahawks salary cap wizards.

    329: The offseason plan for the Seahawks is coming into focus

    329: The offseason plan for the Seahawks is coming into focus

    After two weeks of free agency, the plan for the Seahawks offseason is becoming clear. The large contract they traded for on the offensive line by acquiring Gabe Jackson is essentially swapped out with the departure of Jarran Reed and his contract on the defensive line. The return of Carlos Dunlap may be the most important move and the reduction in his salary allows for the addition of defensive end Kerry Hyder and the return of Al Woods to the interior. It's also appears they are sacrificing their full participation in the draft and instead trading for proven veteran talent.
    The San Francisco 49ers made a huge move this past week by trading two future first round picks to move up to the third pick overall. We get into the history of NFL trades into the top three picks to show there is risk involved. However, for a team that has seen success with an average quarterback, the potential reward is easily worth the risk in their case. We discuss the move in context with the other NFC West teams who have been working to upgrade their rosters this offseason.
    The fact that the 49ers are giving up the 12th overall pick and two more first round picks just to move up nine spots in the draft demonstrates how ridiculous the Chicago Bears reported trade package for Russell Wilson was. But it hasn't stopped people like former general manager Mike Tannenbaum from suggesting that the Seahawks could still move on from Wilson for (once again) Sam Darnold.
    In the second half of the show, one of our members of the Flock is considering adjusting his relationship status if it can somehow help the Seahawks get back to championship form.  Adam goes after the owners for nearing completion for their push to a 17-game schedule and Brandan goes after Mike Florio for his rooting interest surrounding the Seahawks quarterback. Better at Life honors go to a new season and to the Miami Dolphins for giving Adam the perfect football gift.

    The Seahawks go from not doing much in three days to doing something in free agency

    The Seahawks go from not doing much in three days to doing something in free agency

    It's once again that time of year where we hope that the Seahawks will go after some big name targets and free agency and come away somewhat disappointed. Coming into Wednesday, Seattle had signed another cornerback castoff from the San Francisco 49ers and signed Poona Ford to stay in Seattle for two more years. Neither the offensive line and defensive line were addressed. Not until the second half of the recording of this latest show.
    After talking about missed opportunities in free agency, we look back on some of the worst takes regarding the drama surrounding Russell Wilson. We have multiple theories to choose from on why Russ was not named in the letter to season ticket holders and Adam likely nails the easiest explanation. We also diagnose how Sam Darnold entered the quarterback conversation this past week after Pete Carroll's quotes from December were used to support two different trade proposals.
    In the second half of the show, we get news that the Seahawks have acquired an offensive lineman from the Las Vegas Raiders. He wasn't the one discussed in the first half, but we take a look at some of the highlights of the move and talk about what it could mean for Damien Lewis. The Seahawks are also signing a veteran tight end, but it highlights a key area the Seahawks aren't taking advantage of when it comes to contracts to try and squeeze multiple moves into this offseason.
    Mike Silver lands in the Do Better segment for what was probably the worst take about the Russell Wilson situation, and Adam takes issue with characterizing Deshaun Watson's issues with the Houston franchise as anything remotely similar to Russ in Seattle. Better at life honors go to the 1984 Seahawks defense for some overdue recognition and to the "Acid Queen" as Adam rebounds from last week's call out to do better.

A message from a freeloader

Where would my life be without this podcast? A lot more boring at the very least. These guys make my day, whether it’s a new episode or me going back in time to the old ones to hear the freezing cold takes, or the wildly accurate takes that make me wonder if they are prophetic. While yes, I’m a freeloader (no income, i’m only 15), someday i’ll be in the Flockers and I’ll be able to make it up. Love this show and it’s a great way to unwind (until i get to hear Adam rant about the mainstream media or aliens or anything in between, but i wouldn’t have it any other way). Wish i could give it more than five stars, these guys are seriously great. Go Hawks!

Deserthawk12 ,
