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 sure.
I’m not too proud to admit that the one and only draft choice made by the Seahawks in the last two years that I predicted correctly was their top choice in the 2010 draft, Russell Okung. If I wanted to be nice I could also give myself partial credit for suspecting that they might pick Earl Thomas over Taylor Mays with their other first round pick that year, but that would still leave me with an abysmal record of 1.5 correct predictions and 16.5 incorrects and I-don’t-knows. Percentage-wise, that means I’ve been right just 8.3% of the time, and there’s not a bell curve in the world generous enough to make th...

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...
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...
In a perfect world things are easy. Even in a not so perfect world, some things come along and the decision is simple. But when it comes to the NFL Draft things are far from easy or simple. And with the 12th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Seattle Seahawks select……..? As I sit and ponder at the team needs for Seattle it comes to no surprise that it is difficult to figure out...
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.
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.

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...
Water Cooler Draft Chat Friday AM
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...
The NFL Draft was today in New York City's Radio City Music Hall. Pete Carroll and John Schneider are in Seattle Washington at the VMAC Seahawks facility.

Then at #15 the Seattle Seahawks...

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...
...pick no one. They just traded their selection to the Eagles. In return, they move down three spots to the 15th overall spot and get a fourth (114th overall) and a sixth (172nd overall) round pick from Philadelphia. That's great news -- if there's one thing we've learned about John Schneider, it's that he does great things with mid-round picks.
