  • The correlation is high for those visiting and those worked out, frequently though the late picks are relatively surprising.

    Looking at my old charts I have them with the following visits in previous years -

    2017 -

    Malik McDowell
    Shaq Griffin
    Otha Peters (was an UDFA signing)

    (I think neither of those were their number 1 targets, but it's just how the draft fell)

    2016 -

    Germain Ifedi
    Joey Hunt
    Zac Brooks
    Rees Odhiambo
    Christian French
    George Fant


    You can guarantee at least a few visits result in selections. The team typically spends a lot of their 30 visits on much later round/UDFA guys.

    Wow, you have those charts... I appreciate the response.

    I was curious how we might ever distinguish between FO hopes and dreams, reality, and smokescreens. I highly doubt they'd spend many of their visits on players they had no interest in picking up.

    Ok, I'll let this thread get back to roster issues.

  • Defensive lineman Branden Jackson, center Joey Hunt, and long snapper Tyler Ott signed their exclusive rights tenders, locking them up with Seattle for the 2018 season.

  • Billy Price also visited, given he injured himself at the combine on the bench press his stock is falling and will prove to be an absolute steal in the second round.

  • Thanks for posting that Kitsap, the OTC.com number is slightly lower.

    Think I am up to date as far as the announced numbers at last.

  • Can anyone help me with what happened with the picks trades?

    It appears the team traded up to #149 from #156 to draft a punter, he's undoubtedly a good punter. Did they really give away the last two 7ths (#226 and #250) to move up? This cost them 3 picks to acquire a punter? I guess John Ryan could be on his way out. Is JS channelling Tim Ruskell?

    EDIT:

    I was wrong about the trade as the #250 pick was compensation to the Patriots for CB- Coleman.

    JS will only be channelling Ruskell if he keeps two P's on the final 53.

  • To get Dickson, the Seahawks traded the 157th overall pick and the 226th overall pick (seventh round) to the Broncos, so that they could move up seven spots in the fifth round to grab the Texas punter with the 149th pick.

  • Thanks Kitsap, I think it was pick #156 they trade up to #149 with instead of #157.

    After looking at some film on the punter I think John Ryan's time here is limited. This young punter is very good.

    Drafting a punter gave me a Ryan Plackmeier flashback, some how thoughI’d doubt the team would cut a Michael Bennett prospect to keep two punters on the final roster.

  • I haven’t yet updated the roster to include the UDFA additions yet b/c the numbers seems wrong for 90.

    Will update when there is some confirmation from the team.

  • I have the Seahawks with $5,758,856 in cap space.

    The rookie class, at least during the 'rule of 51' clause is in place has cost the team a total of $1,782,251.

    The contracts that count, in full, are the top 3 totalling $3,316,367

    The remaining 6 that don't make the top 51 in terms of value still have their prorated signing bonus count which totals $355,884 over the 6 players

    The bottom 3 that came off the top 51 total $1,890,000

  • How much of the cap is usually reserved for in-season injury replacements and/or trades? It seems wise to me not to spend it all at the beginning of the season. Of course, I probably thinking too simplistically, and I admit not knowing enough about the cap laws.

    Ideally you want at least $2-3M.

    Seattle was dangerously close to $0 last season a few times IIRC, it was the main reason Dwight Freeney was released.

    I've just written a long post about the cap and how the draft has changed it, I'll post it now :)

  • I'm going to update the roster by adding the UDFA players who I believe there is confirmation of actually signing instead of just being invited to the rookie mini camp.

  • There are three others DT- Eddy Wilson, OG- Skyler Phillips, and DB- Chris Hawkins who I think could also be signed but there is not solid outside confirmation yet. I expect this to clarify in the next 24.

    Thanks for posting the revised cap number OP I was curious after the recent Maxwell signing.

  • At present I'd assume there are at least 3 players who are either NFI or IR still and wouldn't be counted towards the 90.

    That doesn't actually include the Maxwell signing, I think his cap hit will be $2-2.5M though :)

  • Still waiting on number assignments, although won't buy any till the regular season or just before if they have weird ones, Penny should have 20 it's available, Griffin could wear a 40 series and still be able to drop into the secondary or play the line I think with new rules.

    Flowers isn't getting Kams number just yet don't think, Kam still needs injury settlement or release, if he is IR'ed then his number stays with him, although the team could assign 25 to him and piss off Sherman at the same time.

    Thanks Sheriff, as long as it wasn't 59, will still wait although his number was 18 in college, that twin thing they may do something wacky there.

    His jersey is going to fly off the racks initially both as a fan and collectors item.

  • I’m pretty excited to see all our rookies. I’m extremely curious to see a 5’11” 310 pound DT with an 80+” wingspan. Running into him will be like the running into a wall. Poona could easily become a fan favourite.

    Thanks for the info everyone will update now.
