D.K. Metcalf Jersey

Many a mock draft projected Mississippi wide receiver D.K. Metcalf to go in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.

Thursday’s first round came and went with only two wide receivers going in the first round. Metcalf wasn’t one of them.

Instead, Metcalf was selected with the final pick in the second round on Friday by the Seattle Seahawks. This selection came after six more wide receivers were drafted.

So, when the long, excruciating wait was finally over at pick No. 64, Metcalf was quite emotional.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider made the call to Metcalf.

After a brief exchange of pleasantries, Schneider broke the news to Metcalf.

“Hey, man, get fired up, we’re going to make you a Seattle Seahawk right here, OK?”

(Emotional Metcalf)

“Alright, man, congratulations.”

(More emotional Metcalf)

Schneider turns the phone over to head coach Pete Carroll, who got the whole staff in the team’s war room to cheer Metcalf.

Impressive physique — “body beautiful” as former NFL Network analyst and current Oakland Raiders GM Mike Mayock would say — and impressive numbers at the NFL scouting combine (4.33 40-yard dash, 27 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, 40 1/2-inch vertical jump) had Metcalf climbing up draft boards.

Or, so we thought.

Instead, concerns about his route-running skills and limited experience playing in college — he played in 21 games over three seasons at Mississippi, catching 67 passes for 1,228 yards and 14 TDs — likely contributed to his drop in the draft.

However, Metcalf lands in an ideal place in Seattle, where Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson should be able to utilize Metcalf’s abilities to their fullest.

Marquise Blair Jersey

The Seahawks’ first pick in the second round came a bit later than expected, but the team still managed to address a need on defense by selecting Utah safety Marquise Blair at No. 47 overall.

The Seahawks had been expected to pick around 4:30 p.m. (PT) at No. 37, but ultimately moved back to No. 47 in a trade with the Carolina Panthers.

Regardless of the order, Seattle still managed to fill holes on defense with its first two picks of the draft.

In two seasons with the Utes, the 6-feet-2, 195-pound Blair recorded 106 tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions.

In two seasons with the Utes, the 6-feet-2, 195-pound Blair recorded 106 tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions.

Blair offers Seattle a versatile option in the secondary, having played at both free and strong safety. Blair, who said he had about a 50-50 split between both positions, told reporters the Seahawks haven’t yet told him whether they have a preference.

“He’s a hitter — he is a Kam Chancellor replacement,” Mike Salk said of the pick during 710 ESPN Seattle’s Draft Lounge. “He is a straight-up hitter as a safety coming out of Utah.”

“Which is fascinating, because he’s not your 225-pound, typical Kam Chancellor body type,” Jake Heaps added. “It’s more of the aggressive nature with which he plays… he is fearless coming downhill.”

L.J. Collier Jersey

The Seattle Seahawks’ pass rush vaulted to the top of their needs after Tuesday’s trade of star defensive end Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs, and they wasted no time rebuilding at that position when the NFL Draft started Thursday.

OK, they wasted a little bit of time.

Draft tracker: The latest Seahawks updates and most pressing needs

The Seahawks picked TCU’s L.J. Collier with the 29th overall selection, waiting until late in their allotted time to make the selection. That was presumably because Seahawks general manager John Schneider was still working out a deal with the New York Giants, who took the No. 30 pick off Seattle’s hands in what was actually the second trade back in the first round by Seattle (full story on that here).

No matter how long it took, the Seahawks got their guy in Collier, a 6-foot-2, 283-pound defensive end. Collier was a bit of a late bloomer with the Horned Frogs, not finding his way into a starting role until his senior season in 2018. He shined when given the opportunity, however, earning first-team All-Big 12 honors with six sacks, 11.5 tackles for loss, 42 total tackles and five QB hits.

Here’s what 710 ESPN Seattle’s college football insider Brock Huard has to say about Collier:

Bobby Wagner Jersey

To Seahawks fans, it might feel like just yesterday when Bobby Wagner came into his own as the middle linebacker of Seattle’s vaunted defense.

His first Pro Bowl selection followed Seattle’s ascension to the top of the football world, making the postseason showcase in the 2014 season. The Seahawks, of course, came a yard away from winning Super Bowl XLIX that year, and while they never returned, Wagner maintained his excellence, making four more Pro Bowls and landing on the All-Pro team three times.

That run has his coach, Pete Carroll, convinced he’s headed toward a gold jacket and bronze bust in Canton.

“It just seems like he’s a little bit better,” Carroll said, per USA Today. “He’s made more big plays, more significant plays that have affected the game than ever.

“The thing I love about looking at great players is do they show that ability to do it year after year after year. I think that’s what greatness is all about. People say ‘hey this guy is going to be the next Jerry Rice’ well let’s look ten or 12 years from now and see what it looks like. And Bobby’s put together a resume of really Hall of Fame stuff. This is the kind of guy that gets there someday.”

Wagner is among the league’s top two middle linebackers at this moment, logging 69 tackles, 1.0 sack, 11 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one interception, which he returned 98 yards for a touchdown. He didn’t have a registered miss tackle in his first 12 games of this season. If you ask any random NFL player, they’ll likely agree that he’s on a trajectory to make the Hall of Fame. But there’s still the point of capping off such a career with sustained success.

Coincidentally, a linebacker with similar accolades (same amount of Pro Bowls, counting his inclusion as an alternate in 1986, but less All-Pro selections) was being propped up by his former team’s social media channels on Wednesday:

Wagner has eclipsed Clay Matthews Jr.’s accomplishments in terms of postseason accolades, and still has many years left to play. He also has the Super Bowl ring that always seemed to elude Matthews. Now, it’s just up to time to determine whether Wagner someday finds himself in Canton.

“The leadership that he’s brought and the direction and the focus that he’s brought on a regular basis, I mean he’s been a perfect Seahawk throughout the time he’s been here,” Carroll said. “We’re just very lucky to have him.”

Chris Carson Jersey

Chris Carson’s rookie season began with so much promise. A seventh-round pick, Carson wasn’t a household name when he arrived in Seattle, but he was a player that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll loved in the 2017 draft, and Carson didn’t take long to show why, quickly taking over the starting job. But that rookie season that started with promise unfortunately ended on an injury cart in Week 4, the result of a leg injury that landed Carson on injured reserve.

When Carson and the Seahawks went back to work in offseason workouts, his teammates and coaches couldn’t stop raving about him. Despite the previous year’s injury, Carson looked quicker, more explosive and had put on a bit of extra bulk. Even with a first-round pick joining the running back group, Carson emerged as the clear leader of the pack in that position group.

Throughout a 2018 season in which the Seahawks have committed strongly to the running game, Carson has backed up that offseason praise, and in Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, he became the Seahawks’ first 1,000-yard rusher since Marshawn Lynch in 2014.

“He has had a great year,” Carroll said after Carson rushed for 116 yards on 27 carries, including two more touchdown runs that featured a lot of physicality at the goal line. “I hope everybody just loves the way he plays. The touchdown run, I hadn’t seen it clearly enough, I just know what he did. I saw him start digging in with his feet, and I knew he was going to score, and I started celebrating. He was just going to knock it in. His style and the toughness that he’s brought this team and representing the O-linemen and all the guys that have been a big part of the leadership. Chris has had a great year. It’s a great accomplishment. And Chris hasn’t had that many years in the last four or five years where he’s been able to make it though and been healthy the whole time. If you remember, I told you guys, he was the most well-conditioned guy that showed up when we returned in April. There was nobody that was more fit. Nobody was more ready for the work. I don’t know how he did it, but he’s just unbelievable, that commitment that he has, and it carried through the whole season.”

Added quarterback Russell Wilson, “Chris Carson has been unbelievable all year. He’s a 1,000 yard rusher now, that’s a huge tribute to the offensive line and what they’ve done.”

As for how Carson came back so fit this offseason, he credits some changes to his offseason workout plan, replacing some of the heavy weightlifting he did in the past with more pool work and Navy SEAL workouts.

“It’s not even just the (added) weight, it’s the training in general, the different type of training I did in the offseason,” Carson said. “… Just being able to withstand more physical contact than last year.”

Carson, who was nominated for the Ground Player of the Week honors for his performance against the Chiefs, calls reaching the 1,000-yard mark “a blessing” but like any smart running back, he quickly defers to those who helped pave the way for his success while also noting the depth of Seattle’s running back group.

“Any of our running backs could have done this,” he said. “We’ve got four great running backs. All the credit goes to the O-line.”

Thanks in part to Carson and fellow running backs like Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny, who have combined to rush for 883 yards, and who both have had 100-yard games this season, the Seahawks lead the NFL in rushing with 2,378 yards. For offensive linemen, a running back hitting a milestone is an accomplishment that group can take pride in even if it’s another player getting credit for those stats.

“That means a lot,” left tackle Duane Brown said. “As linemen, we don’t have many stats to sum up our production. So to have a running back go over 1,000 yards, that means everything. We really made a point of emphasis to run the ball effectively and consistently, and we’ve been able to do that. He deserves a lot of that credit. We’ve done a decent job up front, but he runs harder than anybody in the league—that’s one of the toughest runners I’ve ever seen. So we’re really happy for him.”

And making that running-game success even more impressive of late is the way the Seahawks have been able to run the ball despite some shuffling on the offensive line because of injuries. The Seahawks started last week’s game without starting right guard D.J. Fluker and right tackle Germain Ifedi, then lost J.R. Sweezy to an injury during the game.

“It just shows how deep the offensive line is,” Carson said. “They do a great job. Once one guy goes down, the next guy comes up and they don’t miss a beat. All the credit goes to them, it just shows how dominant they are.”

Said Brown, “We work extremely hard as a unit, week in and week out preparing physically and mentally for the games. The guys who are backing up are always preparing as if they have to play. As an offensive line, it’s all about continuity, and when you lose two or three guys, to have other guys step in and not miss a beat, that says a lot about our unit, a lot about our coaching staff having everyone ready and prepared for those moments.”

Bradley McDougald Jersey

Image result for Bradley McDougald

To understand how quickly things can change in the NFL, consider the thus-far brief Seahawks career of Bradley McDougald. It was only 21 months ago that the Seahawks signed McDougald to a one-year contract as a free agent, a player who despite being a starter in Tampa Bay didn’t appear to have an obvious path to playing time on a team that featured a pair of Pro Bowl safeties in Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.

Even with those two on the team, McDougald proved to be talented enough to work his way onto the field, first in Seattle’s “big nickel” packages, then eventually as a starter for nine games, two at free safety in place of an injured Thomas, and seven at strong safety after Chancellor went down with a season-ending neck injury.

By the time training camp rolled around this year, it was clear that McDougald, who the Seahawks re-signed in the offseason, would have a big role in Seattle’s defense. The neck injury that ended Chancellor’s 2017 also kept him off the field this year, while Thomas held out in training camp, which combined with the offseason release of Richard Sherman meant that McDougald went from being the team’s third safety a year earlier to being the most experienced member of the secondary by a significant margin.

Thomas eventually returned for the start of the regular season, but a broken leg in Week 4 ended his season, meaning McDougald was once again the clear leader of a secondary he had joined only a year and a half earlier. And McDougald has thrived in that role this season, not just in the way he has helped the young starters around him—free safety Tedric Thomson is in his second season and first as a starter, right cornerback Tre Flowers is a rookie, while left corner Shaquill Griffin is a second-year starter—but also by playing the best football of his career. Through 13 games, McDougald ranks second on the team to Bobby Wagner in tackles (68) and passes defensed (nine), is tied for the team lead with three interceptions, and has two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

And McDougald doesn’t just make a lot of plays, he makes them in big moments, such as when he intercepted Cam Newton in the end zone of a back-and-forth game with big playoff implications, or when he broke up a pass in the end zone on fourth-and-goal on Monday night with the Seahawks protecting a 6-0 lead against the Vikings.

“It has been his consistency and he has been very productive,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “He has been a playmaker from the first game out and he’s been able to put himself in situations and make plays that other guys don’t make. He’s a really good guy in coverage and he continues to come through. The Carolina play that he made, the fourth down in the end zone (against Minnesota), along with the number of others in the last few weeks. He continues to make things happen and he’s having a fantastic season.”

On McDougald’s leadership, Carroll added, “He has been responsible for keeping that group together. He was the guy that had the experience that could speak at all. Only Shaq had played a season, so he was really instrumental in all of that.”

McDougald didn’t come into the 2018 season with a goal of becoming a leader, but with Chancellor unable to play due to injury and Thomas absent from preseason workouts and camp, he realized he was going to have to step up.

“It wasn’t my focal point, it wasn’t something I spent my offseason thinking about, ‘Oh man, I’m going to come in here and be a leader,’” he said. “It kind of just got hand delivered to me. Every room kind of just needs a voice in the room to bounce ideas off of, and I was the oldest guy at that point, and I had a little more experience than a lot of players in the secondary at the time, so guys just kind of gravitated towards me.”

But even if it wasn’t planned, the role of veteran leader has suited McDougald well.

“He has brought a lot of leadership,” Thompson said. “He leads by example. Everything he tells you he’s going to do, he’s going to do. He’s just a good leader for us. And then he’s making plays, which he has been doing his whole career, even when he was in Tampa. He was making plays for us last year. Even with the two Hall of Famers back there, they still had to find a package for him to get him on the field because he was making plays, and it just carried on to this year. He’s making plays at safety, he’s making plays at linebacker, he’s making plays all over the field. And he’s communicating really well, he’s able to talk to the DBs, he’s able to talk to the linebackers, he’s even able to put the D-line in certain stunts and stuff like, so he’s doing a really great job for us this year.”

And now that McDougald has become a leader, one of the most important pieces of advice he can give out is one that he received from Chancellor when he arrived in Seattle, then eventually replaced the Pro-Bowler at strong safety. McDougald knew it already, but it was also important for him to hear from Chancellor that his job was not to be Kam Chancellor, but rather to be the best version of himself he could be. That holds true as well for Griffin and Flowers, who might be Seahawks cornerbacks, but who aren’t being asked to be Richard Sherman.

“That was always my goal—when I came in here, I wanted to be me,” McDougald said. “Talking to Kam, talking to Earl, they watched film on me and they said, ‘One thing about Seattle, Pete lets you be you. He believes in letting guys character show colorfully. Whoever you are, be you, but be you every day, be it consistently, and if you can do that, Pete’s going to love you.’ I took that to heart.

“I’ve got a different playing style than Kam, so when I came in to replace Kam, I was constantly getting compared to Kam, the way he hits, the way he does this, the way he does that. And he was the first person to tell me, ‘You’re here because of what you have done, be you.’ I spread that message to the younger guys—‘You don’t have to be Sherm, Tre. You’re built like him, but you don’t have to be him. Be you, be Tre Flowers, be the next household name.’ When Sherm was a rookie, nobody knew who he was before he started making his plays. So that’s one thing I try to pass down to them, just be you and that’s good enough for us.”

McDougald’s emergence as a leader is just one of many reasons why the Seahawks have zero concerns about the strength of their team leadership, even following an offseason that saw several key veterans depart via free agency, trade or because of injury. Yes, some big personalities and strong voices moved on, but a lot of important veteran voices are still around, players like Russell Wilson, Wagner, Doug Baldwin, K.J. Wright, Duane Brown, Justin Britt and Tyler Lockett. And a group of younger players such as Jarran Reed, Frank Clark and Shaquill Griffin have stepped into leadership roles following the departure of veterans in their position groups.

“These guys are connected,” Carroll said. “There’s always leadership. Sometimes, it’s better than others. We have particularly good direction from our guys and guys that are humble and they care about the people around them and they’re looking after the young guys. They’re watching them, not just in football but what’s going on around their worlds. These guys do a great job of handling their business on and off the field. I think it has to do with the leadership, so it’s been a strong aspect of us. I know everybody said ‘Oh, well you’re going to lose all this leadership, how are you going to be?’ I didn’t feel like that. I felt like we had plenty of guys that had already been factors as leaders throughout the squad and there’s been a few surprises. I think Bradley taking over as much as he did and as quickly as he did was a great surprise. J-Reed was a guy who we knew would be a guy that could be a leader and he’s stepped up. I think Frank has been a surprise in how confident he’s been and how he’s been able to share his experience with guys and help them out.”

Duane Brown Jersey

The Seahawks unexpectedly returned to the postseason in 2018, fueled by an improved offensive line and a potent running game. But some think that the Seahawks should have thrown the ball more.

Among the some? Seattle left tackle Duane Brown.

“When you have a quarterback as talented as Russell Wilson is, you have to have balance,” Brown said in an appearance on NFL Network. “At times, I think we ran the ball maybe a little bit too much, and that’s kind of hard to say as a lineman. But it worked for us, it worked for us for a long time. The guys up front, they leaned on us, they leaned on Chris Carson [and the] stable of backs we had.”

They have one less in 2019, given the departure of Mike Davis in free agency. But Carson and 2018 first-rounder Rashaan Penny remain on the roster.

Wilson remains a short-list franchise quarterback. As he enters a contract year (barring an extension), Brown hopes that the team will dial up plenty of pass plays.

“I think Russ, we got to use him as much as possible next year,” Brown said. “He obviously had his best statistical year even with us running the ball as much as we did, but the balance is there, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Wilson threw 427 passes in 2018, sharply down from a career-high 553 in 2017 and his lowest output since 2013, when he threw 407 passes. Of course, 2013 ended with a Super Bowl win, so maybe the reliance on the running game coupled with more judicious passing is the way to go — especially as the Seahawks continue to lay the foundation to contend at a high level in 2019, and beyond.

Sweezy Jersey

After a successful one-year reunion with his old team, Seahawks guard J.R. Sweezy has found a new home in the NFC West. Sweezy is expected to sign a two-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Seahawks 2019 free agency tracker: Latest departures and signings

The loss of Sweezy leaves Seattle short one starting guard. Right guard D.J. Fluker is also an unrestricted free agent, but has yet to be linked to another team during the league’s legal tampering period. Free agency will officially start Wednesday.

The Seahawks offensive line took a step forward in 2018 after being ranked near the bottom of the league for consecutive seasons. Pro Football Focus ranked the unit 17th overall in pass-blocking efficiency during the regular season, up from 29th in 2017. Seattle also led the league in rushing and saw its first 1,000-yard rusher since 2014.

Sweezy, 29, returned to Seattle in August 2018 after spending two years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 29-year-old guard was originally a seventh-round pick by the Seahawks in 2012 and went on to become part of Seattle’s Super Bowl XLVIII-winning roster.

For his performance with the Seahawks last season, Sweezy received a Pro Bowl alternate nod.

Sweezy was the first of two Seahawks said to be headed to the Cardinals on Tuesday afternoon, the other being backup quarterback Brett Hundley.

Barkevious Mingo Jersey

Image result for Barkevious Mingo

The Seattle Seahawks signed Barkevious Mingo to a two-year deal in March, and I think he’s a sleeper choice for being one of the most valuable players on the roster next season. Not that he’ll be one of the best players on the Seahawks, but at a base salary of $1 million in 2018 and $3 million in 2019, he has the potential to be an absolute bargain as a starting strongside linebacker and an edge rusher on passing downs.

Seattle desperately lacked both of those things last season and while Mingo has already been labeled as a draft bust, he certainly wasn’t useless last year on the Indianapolis Colts. And that draft featured horrible swings and misses all over the top half of the first round that year.

In 2013, the top pick came down to either of the top left tackles: Eric Fisher or Luke Joeckel. The Kansas City Chiefs eventually settled on Fisher while Joeckel went to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fisher mediocre’d his way to a four-year, $48 million extension with the Chiefs mostly because competent tackles are just that hard to find, while Joeckel underwhelmed as a tackle in Jacksonville, came to the Seahawks, and has remained a 26-year-old free agent all year.

The third pick was Dion Jordan, another player that Seattle fans are now quite familiar with.

The first good pick in the draft was Lane Johnson to the Philadelphia Eagles, a first-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler in 2017. Next was Ezekiel Ansah to the Detroit Lions, another one-time Pro Bowler from the 2013 draft. That means that in the top five of the draft, you have a mediocre tackle, a bad offensive lineman, a terrible choice at defensive end (for as much as he’s gotten into the good graces of Seahawks fans, Jordan has still been the worst selection of that draft for the team that chose him), a good tackle, and a good-but-inconsistent defensive end.

The next 13 picks are almost all sore spots.

Mingo went sixth overall to the Cleveland Browns and was followed by: Jonathan Cooper, Tavon Austin, Dee Milliner, Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker, D.J. Hayden, Sheldon Richardson, Star Lotulelei, Kenny Vaccaro, E.J. Manuel, Jarvis Jones, and Eric Reid. Of those 13 players, 10 changed teams before last season, while the other three (Lotulelei, Vaccaro, Reid) left their teams during this offseason, with the latter two still not finding homes.

Tre Flowers Jersey

Tre Flowers recorded zero interceptions as a rookie for the Seattle Seahawks in 2018, but as time passes, theories evolve, and understanding of the game grows, we know as we get older that cornerbacks shall not simply be judged on their interception totals. We know that it may in fact be good to have fewer interceptions if it is a byproduct of quarterbacks being afraid to throw your way; making it all the more incredible that Richard Sherman could have multiple eight-interception seasons while being one of the least-targeted starting corners in the NFL.

Flowers never got the chance to play with Sherman, but he is certainly the closest thing on the team to potentially replacing him.

Beyond just being a fifth round pick and a player who was converted from another position, Flowers also became a starter as a rookie like Sherman (but in fact did so a few games sooner) and performed quite well given the circumstances. And while Sherman was always critiqued by pointing out he had teammates like Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, Flowers certainly does not get that same distinction.

His basic box score stats read like this: 67 tackles (55 solo), three forced fumbles, six passes defensed, and zero picks. But dig a little deeper, as ProFootballFocus did on this particular stat, and you’ll see that Flowers got about as good of results as you can hope for on throws downfield. Per PFF, his rating of 51.4 against on throws within 9 yards ranked 2nd among all cornerbacks.

They go on to give him a good run grade, but grades don’t mean anything to this writer so let’s just say I’m hopeful that indeed Flowers is as good on run defense as some of his predecessors at the position.

Of course, 0-9 yards downfield may produce a lower rating than say, 10-19 yards downfield, because it’s a short throw. And if Flowers is a good tackler, then he could even allow targets to be caught and still keep the rating low as long as he’s not giving up touchdowns or big gains. We don’t have the full breakdown from PFF here of how many throws this accounts for and so on, nor do we know how Flowers did 10-19 yards downfield or 20+. I mean, the numbers could be out there, I just don’t have them readily available, though I’m always willing to edit something in!

The best news of all though is that Flowers had played no cornerback prior to 2018, then he started 15 games for an NFL team and not only managed to avoid standing out in a bad way, he often made his name mentioned for good reasons.
