Russell Wilson and the Seahawks players continuing what has now become an offseason tradition with a player-organized optional "camp". Sunday morning many players met at VMAC before heading off to Hawaii.
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, April 15 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
From The Hawaiian Islands
We recapped a good amount of Seahawks players' social media posts from this week's Hawaii-based player-driven workouts in Monday and Tuesday's Round-Ups, but as expected, fresh social scenes have been pouring in.
Here's a look at some more on-the-field and off-the-field updates from the Hawaiian Islands, where quarterback Russell Wilson, tight ends Jimmy Graham, Luke Willson, Cooper Helfet, and RaShaun Allen, wide receivers Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Kevin Norwood, and Chris Matthews, running back Demitrius Bronson, fullback Derrick Coleman, cornerbacks Richard Sherman, Cary Williams, Eric Pinkins, and Will Blackmon, linebackers Bruce Irvin, Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, and Mike Morgan, and safeties Kam Chancellor and Dion Bailey have gathered for an unofficial offseason program, and a little fun in the sun.
Seattle's Draft "Wish List"
Barnwell sees Seattle's biggest need as along the interior of the offensive line, with lesser needs at wide receiver and cornerback.
Here's what Barnwell's "Wish List" encompasses for the Seahawks:
"What do you get for the team that has almost everything? The Seahawks had a hole at receiver heading into the offseason, but their stunning trade to acquire Jimmy Graham from New Orleans upgraded Seattle's weakest point. They could still add a wide receiver, given that 2014 second-rounder Paul Richardson tore his ACL in January and is unlikely to be 100 percent before the  season, but that's likely to come with one of Seattle's five selections in the fourth and fifth rounds.
Instead, the Seahawks will need to find interior linemen to help create holes for the newly re-signed Marshawn Lynch, having lost left guard James Carpenter to the Jets and traded center Max Unger to the Saints in the Graham deal without acquiring a replacement. Seattle doesn't pick until 63, so unless the Seahawks trade up, general manager John Schneider will have to hope that somebody like Florida State's Cameron Erving or South Carolina's A.J. Cann falls to the bottom of the second round.
And while it seems strange to say, the Super Bowl injury to Jeremy Lane and the departure of Byron Maxwell puts Seattle back in the market for cornerback help. They won't need an immediate starter, having signed Cary Williams, but it would be a surprise if Seattle didn't come away with a cornerback to stash away for 2016 or 2017. Pete Carroll has been incredible with developing late-round picks like Maxwell (a 2011 sixth-rounder) and Richard Sherman (taken one round earlier) into stars, but that was before Seattle assistants started spreading around the league and taking Carroll's emphasis on big cornerbacks with them. Seattle may have been able to get a guy like 6-foot-2 Oklahoma corner Julian Wilson in the fifth or sixth round a few years ago; now, it may have to reach for him a round or two earlier."

Terry Blount at ESPN.com lists three candidates the Seahawks could select with their seventh-round pick (No. 248 overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Chris Burke at SI.com has a two-round 2015 mock draft, tabbing the Seahawks to target Oregon offensive lineman Hronnis Grasu with their first pick, which doesn't come until the second round (No. 63 overall). On Grasu, Burke writes, *"This is the first pick for Seattle, barring a trade back up. Using it to replace Max Unger with the guy that took over for him at Oregon makes a lot of sense." *Brady Henderson at 710Sports.com takes a closer look at how Grasu might fit in with the Seahawks.
Doug Farrar at SI.com identifies the most versatile defensive lineman set to enter this year's draft and former Washington Husky Danny Shelton earns a mention. Shelton is also one of 26 top prospects that will attend this year's draft in Chicago, Ill. and Michael Silver at NFL.com shares an extensive profile of the Auburn, Wash. native.
