Good morning, 12th Man.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, March 7  - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Darren Rovell of ESPN.com reports the Seahawks' No. 12 "FAN" jersey has climbed into the Top 10 of jersey sales across the entire NFL. A trio of Seahawks players also crack the Top 10, with quarterback Russell Wilson at No. 1, running back Marshawn Lynch at No. 5, and cornerback Richard Sherman leading all defensive players at No. 6. Rovell writes, "With a month to go before the league's fiscal year is complete, the Seahawks remain in the No. 1 spot, selling more merchandise than any other team."

Todd McShay has his Mock Draft 3.0 for ESPN.com. It's an Insider feature requiring a subscription, but McShay believes the Seahawks will select UCLA offensive guard Xavier Su'a-Filo with pick No. 32 in the first round. On Su'a-Filo landing in Seattle, McShay says, "The Seahawks' two biggest need areas, in my opinion, are offensive line (particularly right tackle) and wide receiver, and Su'a-Filo would provide an upgrade at offensive guard. We only have a second-round grade on him, but he is a guy whose stock is rising as the draft process goes on, and he has good foot quickness and size."

Terry Blount of ESPN.com reacts to Todd McShay's latest mock draft, saying "this is the right man in the right spot" of UCLA's Su'a-Filo to Seattle. Blount also wraps up his countdown of the Seahawks top offensive plays of 2013, with wide receiver Jermaine Kearse's 43-yard touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1 coming in at No. 2, and wide receiver Golden Tate's 80-yard score against the St. Louis Rams in Week 8 landing at No. 1.

Elliot Harrison of NFL.com says offensive line, wide receiver, tight end, and backup quarterback could be areas of interest for the Seahawks as free agency approaches.
