The Open Field: Which players are on your ‘must draft’ list for the Seahawks?

The Open Field: Which players are on your ‘must draft’ list for the Seahawks?

Who do you want the Seahawks to draft no matter what it takes?

A few days ago we did a community survey on which players you wanted the Seattle Seahawks to avoid in this week’s NFL Draft. Here’s a sampling of some of your “do not draft” player-specific responses.



So now let’s get to the other side of the coin. Essentially the same parameters are at play with today’s discussion: open-ended responses, your preferences can span No. 16 all the way through the seventh round, and even the far-fetched fantasy of a big trade-up for one of the...

2024 Seahawks Draft preview: Top 5 storylines on offense

Is this the year John Schneider drafts a quarterback?

It’s NFL Draft week in Detroit! The Seattle Seahawks have a whole lot of question marks pertaining to both sides of the ball as we enter the first season of the Mike Macdonald era. In the lead-up to the draft, we’ll take a look at the top stories and questions we’ll presumably have answered next Thursday-Saturday. Today, we’ll focus in on the offense, with an obvious closer look at the offensive line.

Seattle is seemingly open to a reunion with Rashaad Penny, so perhaps...

Seahawks Drafts from the Past: The post-Super Bowl class of 2014

In the lead-up to the 2024 NFL Draft, let’s take a look back on the Seattle Seahawks draft classes from 40, 30, 20, and 10 years ago. I’ll list each draft pick and give a short summary of their career achievements – if applicable.

This is the last article in this series for the year and the 2014 draft class for the Seahawks was…not fantastic.

See who’s had a formal visit with the Seattle Seahawks ahead of the NFL Draft in Detroit.

The calendar has flipped to April, which means we’re in NFL Draft month! For the Seattle Seahawks, there will be much attention paid to what they do with their first-round pick.

2024 Seahawks Draft preview: Top 5 storylines on defense

The Seahawks will have a new-look defense under Mike Macdonald. How will they approach this year’s draft?

We’re less than a week out from the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit.

In the lead-up to the draft, we’ll take a look at the top stories and questions we’ll presumably have answered next Thursday-Saturday. Today, we’ll focus in on the (still) rebuilding defense.

Which Seahawks will be impacted by the 2024 rookie class?

Which Seahawks will be impacted by the 2024 rookie class?

The Seahawks have several positions they need to fill, and a few others that may surprise some currently rostered players.

There are fewer days until the draft than Phillip Rivers has children, and It’s setup to be another thriller.

While perhaps not as exciting as last year in terms of high-end capital, it’s still the first draft under Mike Macdonald and an unusual first-round projection leaves the Seattle Seahawks with a fascinating position at No. 16.

That being said, that first pick will have ripple effects throughout the roster - but the rest of the draft might impact players even...

The Open Field: Who are your ‘must avoid’ players for the Seahawks in the draft?

Name the players you’d rather not see in a Seahawks uniform come next week’s NFL Draft.

We’re less than a week out from the 2024 NFL Draft, and the Seattle Seahawks have a big decision to make about what they’ll do with their first-round pick. Will they trade down? Will they stay put and make a pick? If they somehow trade up, is it for a quarterback? Will they take a quarterback with their first pick regardless of where it is? Decisions, decisions.

Pre-Snap Reads 4/20: What will Seahawks do about interior offensive line?

Pass!

New coach, new posters, same problems. No matter how Coach Macdonald handles the players on his new team, the success of the Seattle Seahawks will ultimately be judged in wins, nearly exclusively. Our ‘Hawks maintain a litany of questions on both sides of the interior line. They still have talent on offense, but with a new OC, how quickly will reality frame the scheme? We’ve hired a savant level defensive-minded coach (according to some peeps), but our D has been so stinking bad for a minute now. How much progress can Coach Macdonald make in a season or two?...

A look at what Coach Carroll is up to at Montlake.

The Washington Huskies are in the middle of spring practice under new head coach Jedd Fisch. There have been some distinguished, familiar faces at these practices in recent days, one of whom is none other than Pete Carroll.

Carroll may no longer be the Seattle Seahawks head coach, but his energy and never-ending love of competition is not going away any time soon. Just have a look at this video and the jump ball contest he has between the Huskies offense and defense.

Speedy Senior Bowl cornerback meets with Seahawks

Speedy Senior Bowl cornerback meets with Seahawks

Carlton Johnson Jr ran a sub-4.3 40-yard dash at his Fresno State.

The Seattle Seahawks had an official pre-draft 30 visit with a cornerback who showcased his speed at his Pro Day.

Local Fresno sports anchor Angelique Martinez reported earlier this week that Fresno State’s Carlton Johnson met with Seattle.

Johnson was second-team All-Mountain West Conference in his senior season, with 11 passes defensed and 4 interceptions (3 of which came in one game). He transferred from Southern Utah to Fresno State (with a JuCo stop at Riverside City College in between) after the school canceled its 2020 season due...
