Seahawks selected Oklahoma State RB Chris Carson with the No. 249 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Carson (5’11/218) spent two years as a Cowboy after transferring from JUCO, managing a career 213-1,076-13 (5.1 YPC) rushing line with 30 receptions. Carson lost his starting job to freshman Justice Hill as a senior, finishing third on the team in carries. Surprisingly invited to February’s Combine, Carson helped himself with a 4.58 forty, 37-inch vertical, and springy 10-foot-10 broad jump in Indy. Despite his high-end athleticism, Carson’s unproductive college career makes him an NFL long shot in the Mario Fannin mold.

Seahawks selected East Central (OK) WR David Moore with the No. 226 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Moore (6'1/219) wasn't on our radar before the draft, and there's not much updated information about him on the internet, either. We do know he ran 4.43 with an impressive 6.98 three-cone time and did 26 bench-press reps at his Pro Day. A plus athlete with plus size, Moore will have to scratch and claw for a roster spot in Seattle. He could be a practice squad candidate.

Seahawks selected Mississippi State T Justin Senior with the No. 210 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Senior (6’5/331) made 39 starts in five years at Mississippi State – 38 at right tackle and one on the left side – and earned second-team All-SEC as a redshirt senior last year. While Senior looks the part with 34-inch arms and big hands (10 ¼), PFF College charted him with eight sacks allowed over the past three seasons. After struggling at January’s Senior Bowl, Senior’s poor athleticism was exposed in Indy with fourth-percentile SPARQ results. A clear liability in pass protection, Senior may have to learn to play guard to carve out a substantive NFL career. He’s going to struggle mightily against outside rushers.
Apr 29 - 5:05 PM

Seahawks selected Cincinnati S Mike Tyson with the No. 187 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The former undisputed world heavyweight champion, Tyson (6'1/204) undertook a new career challenge when he enrolled as a Bearcat (though he's more of a tiger guy), quickly emerging as one of the top safeties in the American Athletic Conference. A one-year starter, Tyson led Cincinnati's secondary in face tattoos as well as interceptions last season, and was a playmaker all over the field. When he wasn't working on his right hook at Cincinnati, he was usually feeling it in the air tonight. A strong tackler and owner of several pigeons, Tyson will try to carve out a role on special teams before getting snaps on defense. He must avoid Buster Douglas on the practice field.
Apr 29 - 4:01 PM

Seahawks selected Colorado S Tedric Thompson with the No. 111 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Thompson (6’0/204) made 37 starts in the Buffaloes’ secondary, tallying 13 career interceptions and earning second-team All-Big 12 from the conference’s coaches as a senior. PFF College charted Thompson with an anemic 21.3 passer rating and 40.3% completion rate allowed in 2016. While an effective college player, Thompson’s drawbacks are his eighth-percentile athleticism, inconsistent tackling in the box, and lack of experience in man coverage. The younger brother of former Dolphins fifth-round pick Cedric Thompson, Tedric’s probable NFL ceiling is a third safety with special teams value.
Apr 29 - 12:27 PM

Seahawks selected Michigan WR Amara Darboh with the No. 106 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Darboh (6’2/214) made 28 starts as a Wolverine, compiling a career receiving line of 151-2,062-14 (13.7 YPR) and earning second-team All-Big Ten as a fifth-year senior. While Darboh offers above-average size and long arms (32 5/8"), his game lacks an explosive element despite 4.45 timed speed, and he showed a tendency to let passes into his body on college tape, failing to secure them with his hands. A solid college player lacking any standout traits, Darboh’s NFL ceiling is likely in the Terrance Williams range.
Apr 28 - 11:50 PM

Seahawks selected North Carolina DT Nazair Jones with the No. 102 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Jones (6’5/304) declared for the draft as a redshirt junior after making 21 starts at UNC, tallying 21 career tackles for loss, five sacks, and 12 pass breakups. He only earned third-team All-ACC in 2016. Jones was charted with more run stops than QB pressures as a Tar Heel by PFF College, and lacks NFL pass-rush tools. A sub-par athlete with 5.11 speed and a 24 ½-inch vertical, Jones was routinely pulled off the field in passing situations by UNC’s defensive staff. Still a long-armed (34 5/8"), high-motor defender capable of plugging the run, Jones projects as an early-down rotational lineman.
Apr 28 - 11:25 PM

Seahawks selected Michigan S Delano Hill with the No. 95 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Hill (6’1/216) made 26 starts in the Wolverines’ secondary, tallying seven career tackles for loss with three interceptions. Big Ten coaches voted him second-team all-conference in 2016. Hill ran 4.47 at the Combine, but struggled in other drills and managed a 38th-percentile cumulative SPARQ score. A stiff-hipped, straight-linish defensive back who tackles well but didn’t dominate in college, Hill profiles best as a kick and punt coverage maven in the David Bruton mold.
Apr 28 - 11:04 PM

Seahawks selected CB Shaq Griffin with the No. 90 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Griffin (6’0/194) was a two-year starter at UCF, primarily playing corner but also dabbling at safety and finishing strong as a senior with 19 pass breakups and four interceptions. PFF College charted Griffin with just a 39.7% completion rate allowed in 2016. Griffin crushed the Combine, recording top-three SPARQ results among cornerbacks with 4.38 speed and springy vertical (38 ½") and broad (11’) jumps. Griffin’s run-support aggressiveness also stood out on tape. Long and athletic with plus ball skills, Griffin is an exciting traits-based prospect with starting-caliber tools. He is very Seahawk-y.
Apr 28 - 10:51 PM

Seahawks selected LSU C Ethan Pocic with the No. 58 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Pocic (6’6/310) made 37 career starts on the Tigers’ offensive line, earning second-team All-SEC from the conference’s coaches as a 2015 junior and first-team honors as a 2016 senior. 27 of Pocic’s starts occurred at center, nine at right guard and one at right tackle. Possessing 33 1/8-inch arms and 23rd-percentile athleticism, Pocic is almost certain to stay inside in the pros. NFL.com O-Line guru Lance Zeirlein has compared Pocic to Jaguars C Branden Linder as an overachiever capable of holding his own at guard or center.
Apr 28 - 9:10 PM

Seahawks selected Michigan State DL Malik McDowell with the No. 35 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

McDowell (6’6/295) made 23 starts in three seasons as a Spartan, tallying 24.5 career tackles for loss with 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. He was named second-team All-Big Ten by the conference’s coaches as both a sophomore and junior. A 48th-percentile SPARQ athlete with experience rushing on both the perimeter and interior, McDowell created disruption from all alignments at Michigan State. NFL scouts have ripped McDowell’s work ethic, motor, and poor pre-draft interviews, but he possesses all the physical traits of a plus NFL starter. He’s a boom-bust prospect whose ceiling is up to him and the Seahawks have succeeded with picks like this in the past.

Richard Sherman reported to Seahawks voluntary workouts on Monday.

Per GM John Schneider, Sherman also had a "great meeting" with coach Pete Carroll last week. Sherman was absent from the first week of voluntary workouts, but it didn't appear related to bad blood over trade talks. Both sides have been frank about a potential deal, at times appearing to welcome the idea, but it appears Sherman will remain in Seattle for 2017. Schneider said the organization has "kind of moved past" the possibility.
Apr 24 - 2:23 PM

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Seahawks GM John Schneider downplayed the chances of Richard Sherman getting traded.

"Right now, I don't think the odds are very good," Schneider said. "But if somebody comes cruising along and something happens, and we do something, it happens." Schneider is correct that a trade remains unlikely, but it's remarkable how openly the Seahawks continue to talk about dealing their star corner. We wouldn't rule anything out ahead of next week's draft.
Apr 20 - 9:43 PM

Tyler Lockett (broken leg) believes he'll be ready for training camp.

It's an extremely aggressive timeline for Lockett's devastating Christmas Eve injury. Coach Pete Carroll has previously identified Week 1 as the goal. Even if Lockett is ready for camp, he could be held out of the preseason.
Apr 20 - 7:34 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports "nobody has come close to meeting" the Seahawks' asking price of a first- and third-round pick for Richard Sherman.

Per Garofolo, were a trade to take place, it would likely be during the first or second night of the draft. The odds continue to be billed as low that Sherman gets dealt, but the fact that things have gotten and stayed this public suggests a fairly strong possibility.
