  • He's got range and versatility. He's played single-high, as well as two deep looks. Box, too, but not a fit there in the pros due to his slight frame. Plays with his hair on fire, which can not be taught. This guy reeks of LOB-type play.

  • Definitely had a bit of a huh? response to the call. Explosive player with a mean streak. Looks like we got our new FS.

    His frame is a bit smaller, but it seems as if he does his best work in the box.

  • He's a projected fifth rounder in this draft analysis I found. He must have the Spider Man arms our front office loves so much in the dbs. We definitely filled a position of need. Now the rest of the draft is just gravy. I'm getting the feeling Schneider knows what the hell he's doing, and the analasysts don't

  • This guy will replace Coleman or Thomas with Delano Hill taking up the other free position.

    Was a but huh when it was announced but this is such a seahawky pick. I'm screenshotting this thread as the impending negativity is going to look foolish over time.

  • This dude is an absolute murderer and is fast enough to be a nickel hybrid. If you don't like the pick, cool. But the Hawks' defense has gotten so damn much tougher over the past 12 hours. So much.

  • I'm ok with the pick and will look forward to looking him up, but he was projected for rounds 3-4 in the draft. The FO must really like him I guess. Can't always predict where a player will go. Glad they got their guy.

    Yeah, I completely agree. Beautiful pick.

    And as the the rankings, if you didn't do the rankings yourself it's just a dudes opinion. There's a reason that those people aren't picking the players and js is

    Something about his highlights makes me think more "Browner-lite" from a reckless-abandon perspective.

  • Toughness, aggression, physicality seems to be the theme of this draft so far.

    Blair might not unseat any of the starters his first year but he has the look of a special teams ace while he learns the ropes at safety

    Have you noticed how many projected 1st rounders have lasted well into the 2nd round and how many projected 2nd/3rd rounders have already been taken?

    Maybe ponder that for a minute.

  • I think he would pair very well with McDougald. Thompson has been the bust for me, we drafted him to be a ball hawk and he has no picks or forced fumbles in two years.

  • He's a vicious hitter for sure. I heard on radio that he got many targeting penalties. Hopefully the coaches can help him clean that up because the NFL is pickier on penalties than college.

    Except both our picks have been consistently projected way later than the 3rd round. A short and unathletic DE and a safety who in today’s NFL is going to be a consistent 15 yard unnecessary roughness. Sweet crushin it

  • I wanted them to pick a DE, and then a Safety with their first 2 picks. They drafted different guys. (Mine were off the board anyway.)

    But there is clear effort here to get the back alley brawl mentality infused back into the football team.

    These guys are badasses. So far 2 for 2.


    If Pete can rebuild his defense they can go back to the Superbowl. Russ can take care of the offense. They just need to find a WR and a Guard, other than that keep drafting defense.

    That is categorically untrue.

    I got it you want to hype up both players in your mind but it doesn’t change the fact they are both huge reaches. I’m honestly hoping both turn out to be all pro but we’ll see I doubt they’ll even get offered a second contract by us.

    If you can find and post a link to a single source that had L.J. Collier projected, and I quote, "way later than the 3rd round", I will admit I was wrong. If you can't, you admit that you were wrong. Deal?

  • I love how there are actually people that think they are better evaluators of DB talent than the best team in the NFL in DB evaluation and development. Pick a new sport to watch, You don't even know what you're looking at.

    This coming from the guy who said the team got cute taking Wagner when they traded down and missed on Kendricks.

    Hey, look at that.

    The guy the Seahawks just took with the 64th pick in the draft was consistently projected to go way higher than the very end of the 2nd round.

    Find that link yet or are you going to admit that you were wrong?

  • What the Seahawks didn't do last year? Punish little scat backs catching the ball over the middle.

    Do not catch the ball over the middle with this guy lurking. He may get a flag or two but alligator arms will last all game.

    Glad to see them not standing pat at safety.
