Triple Shot: Seattle Seahawks
A trio of potential draft picks for the Seattle Seahawks
By Eric Judd
Major Need: Wide Receiver
Best Shot: Keenan Allen WR California. Keenan Allen has emerged from a crowded, and rather cloudy wide receiver class as the number 1 rated prospect as the position. Allen is not Calvin Johnson or AJ Green, but he has the size/speed/hands to be a #1 receiver in the NFL. Seattle receivers, while tremendous at catching opposing players, who intercept passes, for touchdowns, aren’t really very good. Doug Baldwin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate do not give Russell Wilson the necessary weapons to maximize his short-in-stature abilities. Keenan Allen could do that.
Long Shot: Robert Woods WR USC. It pains me to write this; Another USC player drafted by Pete Carroll & Co. to play in the Emerald City. It’s almost past cliché, this marriage, though, might actually work. If the Seahawks were fortunate enough to have Woods fall to the in the 2nd round, no one would know the Woods better than Carroll. Woods has everything a franchise would want in a #1 receiver: good-great speed (estimated in the low 4.4 range), an expansive route tree at his disposal, solid hands, and is willing to go up and make the tough catches. There in lies his issue (aside from being overshadowed by Marquise Lee). At 6’1”, Woods tips the scales at barely 190, a little to small to be sacrificing his body across the middle of the field. However, if Woods is able to bulk up prior to the NFL Scouting Combine in February, he might just upgrade his outlook, from Long Shot to Seattle’s Best Shot.
Shot in the Dark: Marquess Wilson WR Washington St. Heading in to season, Marquess Wilson had nibbled at 1st round potential, unfortunately, his performance never backed up the chatter. Wilson has the size and hands that teams covet. Weighing just a shade under 185, you would expect Wilson to rocket past defenders with long strides and high knees. Sadly, he isn’t all that fast and his knees aren’t all that high. He does have tremendous body control when leaping for a reception and the soft hands to bring it down. Wilson might not be able to challenge for a starting job in Seattle as a rookie, but he is the type of (Pac-12) project that Pete Carroll loves to take onboard.
BEST OF MAXIM
A lot of experts, including me, questioned the Seahawks draft last season. They proved us all wrong.
Here is my first look at the NFL Draft. There are a lot of teams that need quarterbacks this year. The problem, there are not enough QB's in the draft.
I expect to see teams trying to trade down, will they have any takers?
1. Chiefs - Bjoern...
Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill was arrested Tuesday in Issaquah, WA for fourth-degree assault and unlawful imprisonment, according to Mike Ferreri of KOMO-TV. As of this morning, He hasn't been formally charged. This is actually the second domestic violence arrest for Hill in four years.
Who will leave?
Roster change is imminent. It is for every team in the NFL. In fact, it is a major part of professional sports in general.
Some of the players that we are used to cheering for may be playing against us next season. We already know the Seahawks will welcome back former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley when he brings his Jacksonville Jaguars to Seattle.

To say the Seattle Seahawks had a somewhat surprising season in 2012 would be an understatement. While they did come into the new year with a youthful roster that was built on potential, many believed the Seahawks would be a middle-of-the-pack 7-9, 8-8, or 9-7 team that would see its fair share of highs and lows during the season.
And, while Seattle did start off by rollercoastering...

Great season by #3
The Seattle Seahawks really seemed to luck out with taking QB Russell Wilson in the 3rd round.
Little did we know that he would soon be the starting QB for the franchise, and go on to have what some could say was the best rookie season ever from the QB position.
With that said, I am going to take a look at the game by game stats, and show by the numbers, just how...
