Second Round: Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M
I think Michael is a great and underrated running back prospect. He could end up being one of the better backs from this draft class. However, why do they need him? Lynch is the starter, and Turin has proven to be a solid #2 option. I just don't see why they took him. Why not take a starting right tackle or a pass rushing defensive tackle? I just don't get it despite liking the player.
Third Round: Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State
Seattle was smart to target a pass rushing defensive tackle, but Hill is not a second day prospect. He's a very average player who should have gone in the fourth or fifth round. I don't see him contributing much this season.
Fourth Round: Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
This is about the right range for Harper, though better receivers like Patton were still on the board. He's a good insurance policy in case Rice or H...

According to Todd McShay of ESPN, Michael might be the most talented running back in the entire 2013 NFL Draft. I’m not going to go that far...

Good news for a couple undrafted FAs. They got the opportunity to try out for the Seahawks over the weekend and made it on the roster... for now.
Head coach Pete Carroll said on Sunday that one player impressed him during mini-camp over the weekend, but he couldn't remember his name. “The kid from Idaho did a nice job. He did a nice job,” he said, reported PFT.
He entered the 2010 college football season as the Preseason Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and a candidate for the Heisman Trophy. A sports writer noted that Johnson 'struggled' with his accuracy and seemed to have lost some of the "zip" on his passes. He then lost his job to Ryan Tannehill, the 8th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. It was revealed a...

Coach Pete Carroll cited Willson as the player who “jumped out” in Friday’s first day of minicamp, and with another solid day Saturday, Willson now has more catches as a hopeful Seahawk...
The Seattle Seahawks already had a deep roster even before the NFL draft.
For the 11 draft picks selected by Seattle, just finding a way onto the roster by the end of training camp will be tough.
However, two of the Seahawks selections have already made an impression with coach Pete Carroll during the team's three-day rookie minicamp.
Fourth-round receiver Chris Harper and...
It shouldn't be a surprise that Jordan Hill and Jesse Williams are roommates during the Seattle Seahawks rookie minicamp.
Out of all the rookies participating this weekend, Williams and Hill have potentially the best chance of making the greatest impact for the Seahawks right away thanks to a unique set of skills each possess.
''We just want to find a spot, both of...

Seattle Seahawks all pro cornerback Richard Sherman had a little free time on his hands this weekend. So how does Sherman combine his thirst for football with a vacation?
Easy according to Sherman.
Sherman took his jet ski’s out for a little ride on Lake Washington, in Renton, Wash., to watch Seahawks rookies take part in their first minicamp as professional.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was at the team's rookie camp, but not on the field -- he was on nearby Lake Washington on hit jet ski.
With Pete Carroll at the helm in Seattle, nothing about the Seahawks really tends to surprise us anymore. But Richard Sherman riding up to Seahawks camp on a jet ski? Well, that was, if not a surprise, at least unexpected.
The ever eccentric Sherman cruised along the waters of Lake Washington in his wave rider to make a special appearance at Seahawks rookie camp on Saturday.
