Dateline, March 12, 2013: In other news from Seahawks headquarters, GM John Schneider announced that the team has signed K. Early to a 3-year futures contract as a front office consultant. The team released a video of a special edition "Real Rob Report" with fullback Michael Robinson interviewing Mr. Early, discussing the team's draft board, this year's Nittany Lion prospects, and concluding with Robinson proclaiming, "Dude's got serious FO skills!".
Dateline, April 28, 2013: Seahawks GM John Schneider, interviewed by Q13 Fox, discussed the teams 2013 draft. Schneider and coach Pete Carroll were observed numerous times during the draft giving each other high five's, and at one point, apparently a leaping chest bump after the Seahawks picked up 2nd rounder Ryan Swope of Texas A&M. Schneider indicated that Coach Carroll's knee surgery is scheduled for Wednesday and that Carroll would lose only minimal coaching time. The Seahawks draft of Tyler Eifert, Ryan Swope, John Simon, Armonty Bryant, Zavier Gooden, Denard Robinson, Earl Wolff and Micah Hyde was widely panned by draft experts, with Mel Kiper declaring that the Seahawks had reached on several picks, and simply did not get good value out of the draft. With Cee Lo Green playing in the background, Carroll responded to the draft pundits criticism by saying, "well, of course, they're the experts, but we did what we felt we had to do to get our team to the next level, and we're very excited about this draft class."
Love the Eifert & Swope picks. Our QB becomes ever more DANGERRuss!! Eifert can flat go up and get the ball. A good match for Wilson. Also love the Swope pick. Like a faster Steve Largent or Wes Welker.
