Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, April 27 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Mock Draft Central
The first round of the 2015 NFL Draft gets underway this Thursday night in Chicago, Ill. with round one and continues Friday with rounds two and three, wrapping up Saturday with rounds four through seven.
Seattle is without a pick in the first round after trading the No. 31 overall selection to the New Orleans Saints as part of the deal for tight end Jimmy Graham. That means that barring a trade, the Seahawks first picks will come on day two, when the team holds picks in the second (No. 63 overall) and third rounds (No. 95).
The Seahawks have 11 total picks this year, most of any club in the League, and NFL.com's Lance Zierlein and Chad Reuter take a shot at predicting each of them in a seven-round mock draft. Here's a look at the picks the pair made for Seattle:
(Round 2) 63. Seattle Seahawks: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon
Trading for TE Jimmy Graham was a no-brainer, but giving up C Max Unger wasn't easy. It would only make sense that another Duck would waddle in Unger's webbed-footsteps.
(Round 3) 95. Seattle Seahawks: Tre McBride, WR, Williams & Mary
Even though TE Jimmy Graham will be the heart of the offense, defenses know that, too -- McBride and Paul Richardson look to free up space over the middle for Graham to operate.
(Round 4) 112. Seattle Seahawks: Jarvis Harrison, G, Texas A&M
(Round 4) 130. Seattle Seahawks: Leterrius Walton, DT, Central Michigan
(Round 4) 134. Seattle Seahawks: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford
(Round 5) 167. Seattle Seahawks: Lorenzo Doss, CB, Tulane
(Round 5) 170. Seattle Seahawks: Chad Hamilton, G/C, Coastal Carolina
(Round 6) 181. Seattle Seahawks: Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama
(Round 6) 209. Seattle Seahawks: Martrell Spaight, LB, Arkansas
(Round 6) 214. Seattle Seahawks: Andrew Donnal, OT, Iowa
(Round 7) 248. Seattle Seahawks: DeShawn Williams, DT, Clemson
In even more mock drafts, Dane Brugler and Rob Rang at CBSSports.com share who they think the Seahawks will take in the second round (No. 63). Brugler goes with Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates, while Rang sees Seattle targeting Hobart offensive guard Ali Marpet.
