Seahawks Round-Up: Takeaways From Rookie Minicamp, Behind The Scenes Of The Draft and More

All the Seahawks news you might have missed this week.


Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's going on out there and any news you might have missed, about your Seattle Seahawks this week.

Although he was the second defensive player taken in the 2024 NFL Draft, some might have overlooked Byron Murphy II throughout the draft process. Dugar writes about how that has fueled Murphy's "dog mentality."

"Listed just over 6 feet tall, Murphy is considered short for an interior defensive lineman. Height is among the reasons he was a bit overlooked in the recruiting process and, before the 2023 season, wasn't viewed as a surefire first-round pick. Even after he was named an All-American and Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year this past season, height was viewed as Murphy's primary concern."

"My dog mentality, it comes from having doubters," Murphy said. "I've been doubted all my life. I feel like that's what started the dog mentality. My mentality when I'm out there on the field is to kill. I don't care who's in front of me or what they say about you. I believe you have to show yourself. Also part of my mindset is you won't stop me. You have to show me that you can stop me. Even if you know what I'm doing on this play, you still have to show me because I'm coming. And I'm coming hard every play."

The Seahawks drafted six players who played in the Reese's Senior Bowl and Jim Nagy breaks down what Seahawks fans can expect from each player this season. Christian Haynes, Tyrice Knight, AJ Barner, Nehemiah Pritchett, Sataoa Laumea and D.J. James all played in the senior bowl game. senior reporter, John Boyle gave fans an inside look at what happened inside the draft room over three days, as the Seahawks selected eight players.

Boyle's piece gives a time-stamped breakdown on what the room is like leading up to a draft pick, the many calls by other teams for trade offers and what happens when the Seahawks finally make their pick.

The Broncos select quarterback Bo Nix at No. 12, a move that is greeted with excitement in the room. That's not because the Seahawks don't have a high opinion of Nix, but rather because it continues an unprecedented run of offensive players, leaving their top target still available.

Schneider is still working the phones, and hands one of the two calls off to Kirchner to take over negotiations.

The offensive run continues with Las Vegas taking tight end Brock Bowers with the 13th pick. Not long after Schneider is on the phone saying no to another trade offer. Just before he puts down the phone, he remembers his Midwestern manners, adding, "Thank you though, we appreciate it."

6:37 p.m.

Schneider lifts his arms to check the pits of his dress shirt for sweat, drawing a laugh from the room. While still mulling over an aforementioned trade involving 2025 compensation, Schneider asks Teasley for his assessment on that team's prospects for the 2024 season, wanting to know just how valuable next year's pick might be.
