Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Thursday, February 9 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Daniel Jeremiah's Mock Draft 2.0
NFL mock drafts are beginning to pour in with the 2016 season now in the rear view mirror.
NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout for the Baltimore Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns released his second mock draft on Thursday. It's different from his first one after two college all-star games along with injuries to some players.
The Seahawks have the No. 26 overall pick, and after initially mocking an offensive lineman, Jeremiah has them selecting a cornerback in Alabama's Marlon Humphrey:
*Humphrey has the ideal size and length to excel in the Seahawks' scheme. *
Humphrey's full draft profile from NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein can be found here.

Finally, the Seahawks' 2014 and 2005 teams made ESPN Insider's list of the best Super Bowl runner ups.
*The Seahawks are in the middle of a period of sustained excellence that includes two Super Bowls and four straight No. 1 finishes in DVOA from 2012 to 2015. The previous championship Seahawks team could not sustain such greatness for more than one season, but we forget just how powerful this team was in 2005. The Seahawks had the No. 1 offense in the league by both points scored and DVOA. After losing to Jacksonville in Week 1, the Seahawks went 13-1 over the next 14 games. The only loss in that stretch came in Week 4, on the road in overtime to a Washington team that eventually finished 10-6. In December, the Seahawks beat Philadelphia and San Francisco in consecutive games by the combined score of 83-3. (We're ignoring their Week 17 game in our ranking, as they sat starters at halftime and lost to Green Bay by a touchdown.) The Seahawks blew out the Panthers 34-14 in the NFC Championship Game, shutting down Steve Smith with a "box-and-one" style defense mixing zone and man coverage. But the Seahawks couldn't finish their run, falling to Pittsburgh 21-10 in a Super Bowl remembered for a great trick play, some questionable officiating, and the fact that Jerome Bettis is from Detroit. *
