According to Peter King of SI.com, a story that was floating around on Sunday night was the Seattle Seahawks would trade up from the 12th pick to the 7th pick, where the Jacksonville Jaguars currently sit, in order to draft Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
King explained that he doesn’t believe the Seahawks will make the move since they already signed Matt Flynn in free agency and they’d have to likely give up a third round pick to move up and that wouldn’t be a good move.
At the end of the day, I don’t believe the Seahawks will trade up, but if Tannehill falls to them at 12, they’ll certainly take him.

The Seattle Seahawks brought in linebacker Barrett Ruud this offseason to replace David Hawthorne who departed in free agency. But according to head coach Pete Carroll he’s still recovering from knee, shoulder and groin injuries.
“We’ve got him healthy first,” said Carroll. “He’s not healthy yet.”
Ruud played in only nine games for the Titans in 2011, before being...
The Seattle Seahawks have probably taken more than their fair share of lumps during the course of their uneven 36-year existence. The inconsistency that seems to be a hallmark of the Seahawks throughout their history is no better represented than in the results of their drafting through the years. There are certainly plenty of busts; from Dan McGuire to Rick Mirer, there have...
In a lot of ways, the Seattle Seahawks’ 2012 schedule mirrors the type of schedule they had in 2011. The scheduling gods weren’t kind to the ‘Hawks to start either season; in 2011, they played against five playoff teams out of their first eight games, and in 2012, they play against five playoff caliber teams in the first eight games. In 2011, the Seahawks started the year...
While the Seattle Seahawks hold the No. 12 pick in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night, one thing general manager John Schneider has shown in his first two seasons as Seattle's draft guru is his ability to find players in the later rounds.
Whether it was safety Kam Chancellor, cornerback Richard Sherman or linebacker K.J. Wright, some of Seattle's biggest...

The 2012 NFL draft seems to be chalk full of intrigue. Maybe not as much as any other year, but for the Seattle Seahawks in general, this may be the first time where there isn’t any certainty when it comes to drafting a particular position.
In draft years past we have headed into the first round knowing there were certain positions that needed...
