  • Not sexy by any means but hopefully helps the running game. Really hard to get excited about.

  • I'm not getting this pick at all. Another TE that blocks but doesnt catch the ball. Only thing I can think of is that Vannett must be a bust. We have bigger holes to fill.

  • Arguably the best run blocking TE in the entire draft. Ummm ... ya think that Carroll and the Hawks are serious about fixing the running game and getting back to Seahawks football?

    Panned by Bleacher. In fact Bleacher claims another reach by Seattle. According to Bleacher the entire Seattle draft so far has been a reach. I hope we prove them and all the "experts" wrong.

    BTW, they did note that all our picks so far are west coast men.

  • His best football is ahead of him and he’s a good blocker. Wouldn’t of been my choice at TE but can’t argue the logic of it just maybe taking him at 120.

    Just copy and paste this response for all of your draft evaluation. Then you will just need to change the position. It will save you time in the fifth round where we have four selections.

    Yeah, I don't think so.

    Dissly is a good, balanced TE. We needed to add someone there.

    I understand the pick but why not wait to use a sixth or even one of our many fifth round picks? No one was projecting this guy anywhere close to the fourth round.

  • Go back and watch Disslys UW senior film. He completely bulldozes guys over it looks like a grown man throwing around pop warner players. The best TE we have had since the PC/JS run has been Zach Miller and this guy is pretty much a carbon copy of him.

    It's not even arguable. He's the best there is at what he does and is actually a pretty good pass catcher.

    Dickson was an entirely different player coming out. He was an athletic pass catching TE that was fairly dangerous. He's learned to block over his career.

  • Thought this was a bad pick. Would have rather grabbed a CB or lineman and grabbed Dissly or another blocking TE later.

    Again, does this mean Vannetts a bust? I think so.

    Mayock has postive things to say about EVERY pick. It means nothing. I get that the Seahawks love him but EVERY YEAR the Seahawks pick guys ROUNDS ahead of where most think they will be picked. They want their guys I guess. So be it but it is frustrating spending high draft capital for these guys.
    By the way all the personal insults are real impressive.

  • I’m honestly asking...

    How is his game different than Nick Vannett’s? Wasn’t Vannett more known as a blocking TE out of OSU? It will be interesting to see the offensive role our TE’s play this year with the change in personnel.

    He didn't pass block that much at UW. Strong, pretty good run blocker, but needs work on footwork and hand placement.


    According to PFF he blocked on 78 passing plays and didn't allow a single pressure, a 100% blocking efficiency grade.

    True, but Vannett is a strong pass catcher who can run. I won't be surprised if Vannett is the starter and Dickson and Dissly compete for the blocking role. Dickson was a bad signing.

    Dickson has the athleticism to make plays downfield. Solid pass protector, too. Run blocking isn't very impressive, though, which explains this pick. Dissly is going to be a lot more physical than Dickson or Vannett.

    Maybe it's the 3 career TDs? While a strong blocker, I would think hes a guy we could have gotten later.

    The Hawks can now run 2- and 3-TE sets with confidence of moving forward.
