Can I give a grade lower than F?
The Seattle Seahawks front office is nothing short of clueless when it comes to evaluating prospects. James Carpenter was a disaster of a 1st-round pick in 2011, and yet they found a way to top it here. Bruce Irvin can be a terror as a pass rusher, but he’s very raw and is not a three-down lineman at this stage in his career. Throw the character concerns on top of that, and you’ve got a guy with a huge bust factor. This pick could end up costing a number of people their job in Seattle.

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider was on 950 AM in Seattle (via the NewsTribune.com) and indicated that he wouldn’t want to move a Pro Bowl player like Kam Chancellor to linebacker.
“We usually try not to move Pro Bowl players to different positions,” said Schneider.
Even though Schneider doesn’t want to move Chancellor doesn’t mean they wouldn’t draft...
The Seattle Seahawks decided to add another quarterback to their roster on Friday, by drafting Russell Wilson of Wisconsin in the 3rd round of the NFL draft.
Despite the fact that Wilson is under six feet tall, I really believe he has the skill set and intangibles to be a legitimate starting NFL quarterback.
With the addition of Wilson and Matt Flynn in the offseason, don’t be...
...Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson. 'Fess up now, did any of you guess quarterback for this pick?
Wilson is an interesting choice. He's got a strong arm, he's accurate, he makes good decisions, and he's intelligent. Normally you'd expect a guy with that kind of resume to go at the top of the first round, but Wilson is an inch shy of six feet tall,...
Longtime NFL defensive end Raheem Brock has been acquitted of a theft charge stemming from a dispute over a $27 bar tab in Philadelphia.
Brock told the Philadelphia Daily News on Friday that ''it feels great'' to be cleared.
Brock and two companions were asked to leave a city restaurant in June after one of them brought in a cheesesteak from another eatery.
The Seattle Seahawks got decent value for Bobby Wagner here and he fills a need to a certain extent. However, I do have some concerns about this pick.
For starters, he doesn’t have an obvious position. I’m not sure if he’ll play inside or weak-side linebacker in Seattle. On top of that, Lavonte David is a similar player who was higher on my board, and many others.
I do like...
The Seattle Seahawks needed to come away with a quarterback to develop at some point in this draft, and Russell Wilson is a solid choice. However, the 3rd round is a little too early to take a guy who projects as a career backup.
I love Wilson’s leadership and his intangibles, but he lacks the physical tools to be an elite starter at the next level. I do think he will have a long...
A pair of day one trades could be in the making.
The New England Patriots have two number one picks this year at numbers 27 and 31.
The word is that they could be packaging those picks together to trade places with the Seahawks who are now in the number 12 slot.

The Seattle Seahawks traded out of the twelve spot with the Eagles. At fifteen, they select Bruce Irvan, linebacker from West Virginia.
Irvan is an explosive player who should add some playmaking ability tp Pete Carroll’s defense.
At five o'clock today, John Schneider and Pete Carroll will begin their third draft together. Well, not precisely at five, since holding the twelfth overall pick means the Seahawks probably won’t go on the clock until six thirty or so, but you know what I mean.
And at this point, that’s the sum total of what everyone without access to Seattle’s draft room knows for...
SEATTLE - OK, here I go again stepping out of my league, but I really think the Seattle Seahawks should give serious thought to taking Prosser’s Kellen Moore with one of their late picks in Thursday's NFL draft. Why not give the in-state kid a try? I think they may have taken Jake Locker last year if he had been available but he was long gone by the time of their first pick came up.
With the twelveth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. Seattle acquires the Eagles first, fourth and sixth round picks.
The Eagles moved up three spots to acquire Missippi State defensive tackle Fletcher ox.
The Eagle need to shore up their run defense.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the New England Patriots have spoken to the Seattle Seahawks about potentially trading up for the 12th overall pick.
Right now we’re not sure if the Patriots are looking to just gather information or actually trying to make a deal for the 12th pick. But if they’re serious about moving up to the 12 spot, I would think they ‘re...
The Seahawks just swapped second round picks with the Jets, moving them down to the 15th pick (47th overall) along with 19th pick in the fifth round (154th overall) and the 25th pick in the seventh round (232nd overall).
