Thursday Round-Up: One burning question for the Seahawks before the 2015 NFL Draft

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, April 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

One Burning Question For Seattle

Elliot Harrison at poses one burning question for each NFC team ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft, which gets underway next week (April 30 - May 2) in Chicago, Ill.

For the Seahawks, Harrison wonders if general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll have put together "bad" drafts the past two years, or if the team is just so "great" that recent draft picks have had a hard time cracking the starting lineup?

Harrison writes, "Seattle has only drafted one starter the past two years. For many teams, that fact would be emblematic of a poor scouting department or a GM going rogue. I was asked about that poor (recent) history on NFL NOW, and my response was this: GM John Schneider has built a whale of a roster poised to compete for a few years. So how many of the potential first-round draftees could start for the Seahawks in Year 1? Not many. Obviously, the trade for tight end Jimmy Graham altered the organizational course. Will Seattle change even more by drafting a wide receiver early, or do the Seahawks believe in the kids they have now? Either way, getting youth on the defensive line is important."
