Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, May 3 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Teams That Added The Most Talent

Following this past weekend's 2017 NFL Draft that saw the Seahawks pick up 11 new players, staff at set out to evaluate which of the League's 32 teams added the most talent by using NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt's Hot 150 prospect rankings as a guide. 

Based off of Brandt's rankings, points were assigned for each draftee, with Brandt's No. 1-rated prospect receiving 150 points, the No. 2-rated prospect receiving 149 points, and so on. From there, each teams' total points were tallied, with the Seahawks coming in at No. 8 overall with 419 points. 

Here's what had to say about the Seahawks:

*Score:419 points (6 players) *

*The skinny:Seattle cracks the top 8 despite not picking in Round 1, and they are the highest-ranked team of those who made the playoffs last season. They made six picks in Rounds 2-3, and all but one of those selections cracked Brandt's Hot 150. *

The players (points):

*No. 45: Malik McDowell (106) *

*No. 54: Ethan Pocic (97) *

*No. 59: Tedric Thompson (92) *

*No. 94: Shaquill Griffin (57) *

*No. 110: Nazair Jones (41) *

No. 125: Amara Darboh (26)

The Cleveland Browns (No. 1), New Orleans Saints (No. 2), New York Jets (No. 3), Washington Redskins (No. 4), Baltimore Ravens (No. 5), Los Angeles Chargers (T-No. 6) and Jacksonville Jaguars (T-No. 6) were the seven teams in front of the Seahawks based on Brandt's point system.
