Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, March 15 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Mock Draft Central
Mock drafts continue to pop up around the web this offseason and today we'll look at three potential first-round picks for the Seahawks, who currently hold the No. 26 overall selection in next month's draft set to take place April 27-29 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
CB Kevin King
At NFL.com, draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, a former NFL scout, sees the Seahawks staying local in the opening round, opting for Washington Huskies cornerback Kevin King. Jeremiah writes: "King is the perfect fit in the Seahawks' scheme. His stock continues to soar following an outstanding combine performance."
OT Ryan Ramczyk
Also at NFL.com, draft analyst Chad Reuter released a four-round mock draft, and he has the Seahawks taking Wisconsin offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk with pick No. 26. Reuter states: "Signing Luke Joeckel was nice and all, but Ramczyk will be a very good starter once his hip has healed."
Reuter has Seattle going with King in the second round (No. 58 overall), Charlotte defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi with the first of three picks in round three (No. 90 overall) followed by California receiver Chad Hansen (No. 102 overall) and Florida linebacker Alex Anzalone (No. 106 overall). The Seahawks currently do not own any picks in round four.
DT Malik McDowell
Moving over to ESPN.com, draft analyst Todd McShay has the Seahawks targeting the defensive line in the first round (Insider), going with Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell at No. 26. McShay notes: "This would be a good fit for both sides. Pete Carroll can get the most out of McDowell, who has elite traits but subpar maturity and work ethic. He might be the most talented interior defensive lineman in this class, but he needs to land in the right spot."
Tweet Of The Day
Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks center Justin Britt, who welcomes former Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy to Seattle.
