Good morning, 12s, and happy April Fools Day. Be sure to be wary of everything you read on the Internet today (this article excluded, of course).
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, April 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Mock Draft Central
The Seahawks hold 11 picks in the 2015 NFL Draft that's set to take place April 30 - May 2 in Chicago, Ill.
Seattle traded its first-round pick (No. 31 overall) to the New Orleans Saints as part of the deal to acquire tight end Jimmy Graham, so the team's first selection won't come until the second round (No. 63 overall).
Most mock drafts media pundits turn out at this time of year focus on the highly-anticipated first-round. But there's a few around the web that have taken a stab at predicting picks beyond round one.
Terry Blount at ESPN.com lists five prospects the Seahawks could target with pick No. 63 - Florida State offensive guard Tre' Jackson, Michigan wide receiver Devin Funchess, Washington defensive end/linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha, LSU cornerback Jalen Collins, and Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett - not to be confused with the veteran defensive lineman that's already on Seattle's roster.
Tyler Griffin at fftoolbox.scout.com pegs Louisville cornerback Charles Gaines to the Seahawks at No. 63, "Gaines can provide Seattle with a return man and a viable replacement to Legion of Boom members when needed."
Drafttek.com sees Penn St. offensive lineman Donovan Smith to Seattle in the second round as a possible replacement for left tackle Russell Okung down the line, "Pete Carroll can insert LT Donovan Smith into his depth chart and groom him for 2016."
WalterFootball.com projects LSU defensive end/outside linebacker Danielle Hunter to the Seahawks at No. 63, "The Seahawks were able to re-sign Cliff Avril to a 4-year deal back in December, but they could still add an edge rusher for the future, especially if they are able to obtain someone who fits their system so perfectly."
And draftsite.com has Connecticut cornerback Byron Jones to Seattle at the end of round two. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound defensive back was one of the top performers at the NFL Scouting Combine, setting a world-record in the broad jump at 12 feet, three inches.
