I know nothing about college prospects and here’s my 2019 mock draft

Who me? I’m a nobody. Just a guy. I’m not Mel Kiper, Todd McShay, the GM of the Raiders, or any other schmo getting paid to write NFL draft fan fiction. Those guys may give you a long list of reasons as to why Team X is gonna select Player Y — “I watched the film” and “I talked to my sources” and “I know a guy who knows a guy who hacked Dwayne Haskins’ venmo account” — but you won’t find that from me.

I watched five college football games all season long and they all...

The case for the Seahawks drafting a WR in the early rounds

The Seattle Seahawks have not one, but two first-round picks entering Thursday’s 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m 99% sure that they’re not staying at 21 and 29 respectively, and I’m 99.9% sure they will draft a pass-rusher/someone on the defensive line with one of those two picks.

I would love for the other pick — whether it’s still in the first-round or traded down into the second-round — be spent on a wide receiver.

Now you may be thinking, “but they have Doug...

The new depth chart at defensive end

The Seattle Seahawks traded their best defensive end on Tuesday, sending Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs for the 29th overall pick, plus a 2020 second rounder and swapping third round picks on Friday. Clark is the third notable defensive end in the last year-plus to part ways with the Seahawks, joining the also-traded Michael Bennett and retired Cliff Avril from 2018. But parting ways with Clark is different than those two because there is no Clark to replace him.

Not that we know...

Managing Expectations: What to expect from the Seahawks new first round pick

In the build up to the 2019 NFL Draft, which starts Thursday, I’ve gone through the Managing Expectations series which looked at what the Seattle Seahawks can expect from the draft picks they hold going forward. This is a continuation of a series that started last spring and looked at the expected outcomes for players drafted by NFL teams based on draft round.

This year I started by looking at how the current front office has fared compared to NFL averages, and then went systematically...

Jarran Reed out 4-6 weeks following sports hernia surgery

Doug Baldwin isn’t the only Seattle Seahawks player who’s had sports hernia surgery recently.

On the same day that the Seahawks traded star defensive end Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs, it was reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that DT Jarran Reed was in Philadelphia for his own sports hernia operation. The surgery was performed by, Dr. William Meyers, the same one who worked on similar operations for both Baldwin and Marshawn Lynch.

According to Rapoport, Reed is expected...

Seahawks first round trade scenarios

For months we’ve speculated that the Seattle Seahawks would trade down from 21 to acquire more picks, but Tuesday’s trade of Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs didn’t just give them one more selection this weekend (and one more in 2020), it also gave them additional options for what to do with the first round pick they already had.

Let’s quickly review the possibilities:

Keep both pick 21 and pick 29

In some respects, the Seahawks have already done what they would set out to do...

Field Gulls Podcast: Frank Clark trade quick reaction show

The Kansas City Chiefs trade for the Seattle Seahawks former 2015 second-round draft pick Frank Clark, sending the 29th overall pick to Seattle along with a second round selection in 2020. In addition, the Seahawks swap picks with the Chiefs in the third round this year. Clark gets a big contract as part of the deal. Adam Emmert and Brandan Schulze react to the deal that gives Clark more than $63 million guaranteed and $105 million over 5 years.

Considering the amount of money that Clark...

Updated Seahawks draft order following Frank Clark trade

We are two days away from the start of the 2019 NFL Draft, and the big news that’s grabbing all of the NFL headlines is the Seattle Seahawks’ decision to trade standout defensive end Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs. Seattle received Kansas City’s 2019 first-round pick, picked up a 2020 second-rounder, and swapped 2019 third-round picks.

The Seahawks have skyrocketed from a franchise-low four draft selections entering Thursday to a whopping five. However, they now join the Green...

Instant reaction: Why the Frank Clark deal is a coup for the Seahawks

Draft assets, cap space both suddenly and markedly improved.

Trading Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs for two draft picks — a first and a second! — is not just a good move for the Seattle Seahawks, and not just the right move, it’s the best move.

Seattle could have kept Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner and Clark, simultaneously, all at top-of-the-market prices. There is room in an ever-growing salary cap for $75 million spread among three elite playmakers, each top 10 at their...

Seahawks must draft a pass-rusher after trading Frank Clark

The Seahawks now have two first-round picks and a major pass-rushing need with only one edge player on the roster eclipsing three sacks last season.

Frank Clark replacements that Seahawks could target in draft

The Seattle Seahawks have had a busy week. On April 16th, they finalized the big contract with Russell Wilson. When you pay the quarterback the big bucks, you have to make decisions on who else to pay, and on Tuesday, one of those decisions involved trading away the team’s leading pass rusher, Frank Clark, rather than pay a long-term deal. This is a big draft for Seattle. They now have two first-round picks in the twenties, and can decide to address replacing Clark’s production with a...

Seahawks agree to trade Frank Clark to Chiefs

It turns out the Chiefs did have plans to trade for a defensive player after all, just not the player fans thought they were getting in a rumor that made the rounds on Tuesday. Shortly after it was revealed that All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson had not been dealt to Kansas City like so many thought, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Seattle agreed to trade defensive end Frank Clark to the Chiefs for a haul of draft picks.

Seahawks trade Frank Clark, add a 1st and 2nd round pick

The return for Clark has been a 2019 first round pick — 29th overall — and a 2020 second round pick. The teams will also exchange third round picks, meaning the Seahawks have moved down from 84 to 92.

The 7-Round Mock Draft That I Want To See Happen

This week’s draft is different from all of the rest. This isn’t just a look at guys that may be on the radar of the Seattle Seahawks, this is who I think they should go after. I still stick with the type of players the team prefers, but it is what I want them to do.

Here is my draft for today:

Trades:

I really liked this trade concept that I have used the last couple of weeks so I stuck with it. It feels very possible.

- START: 21 (1), 84 (3), 124 (4), 159 (5)

A review of Jarran Reed’s sacks in 2018

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed burst onto the sack scene in 2019, posting 10.5 sacks during the season after recording just 3.0 sacks during his first two seasons combined. So, the question then becomes whether his performance is one that he can replicate going forward. In order to address this, let’s take a look at each of the eleven sacks in which he was involved during the 2018 season.
