Monday Round-Up: Seahawks Take Defensive End In Peter King’s NFL Mock Dra Deandre Hopkins Women’s Jersey ft

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here’s a look at what’s “out there” for today — Monday, April 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

Seahawks Take Davenport In MMQB Mock

With a few days to go before the 2018 NFL Draft, longtime NFL writer Peter King of The MMQB put together his full first-round mock draft.

At the No. Deandre Hopkins Jersey  18 overall selection in the first-round, King has the Seahawks taking a pass-rusher in Texas-San Antonio defensive end Marcus Davenport:

“You know how we always say, _This team never thought Player X would be there? _This is the first example of that in the first round. Davenport could go 10 to Oakland, and in a few spots between. I believe GM John Schneider thought it smart at this point to deal this pick down, and he very well would have if a good falling player was not available.”

2018 NFL Draft Preview: Will The Seahawks Draft A Quarterback For Deandre Hopkins Women’s Jersey The First Time Since 2012?

With the NFL Draft coming up, Seahawks.com is taking a position-by-position look at where things currently stand on the Seahawks’ roster, as well as the top prospects at each position. We’ll also look at Seattle’s draft history at each position under general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll.

The Seahawks currently hold 8 picks in the 2018 draft, which begins April 26 in Dallas.

Seattle’s 2018 Draft Picks: Round 1, Pick 18, No. 18 overall; Round 4, Pick 20, No. 120 overall; Round 5, Pick 4, No. 141 overall; Round 5, Pick 9, No. 146 overall; Round 5, Pick 19, No. 156 overall; Round 5, Pick 31, No. 168 overall; Round 7, Pick 8, No. 226 overall; Round 7, Pick 30, No. 248 overall.

So far we’ve covered the offensive line, the defensive line, tight end, linebacker, running back, cornerback, and receiver, and today we take a look at quarterback. Tomorrow we’ll turn our attention to the safeties.

Draft History Under Schneider and Carroll: Russell Wilson (No. 75 overall, 2012).

Where The Seahawks Stand

As you can see above, the Seahawks haven’t drafted a lot of quarterbacks since Carroll and Schneider took over—though they’ve got a pretty solid batting average—but even with Wilson in the middle of his prime, Seattle would like to add talent to that position if the right player is available at the right spot in the draft. Currently the Seahawks have Austin Davis, last year’s No. 2 quarterback, as well as the recently-signed Stephen Morris, but they aren’t necessarily done adding to that spot.

“We never feel like we’re set at any position,” Schneider said when asked about backup quarterback. “We’re not competing, we’re not doing our jobs, if we feel like we’re set.”

One reason Schneider will always at least consider drafting a quarterback is his history working under former Packers general manager Ron Wolf, who even after acquiring Brett Favre, continued to add at that position in the 1990s, often seeing those players develop into valuable trade chips, including future Seahawks Pro-Bowler Matt Hasselbeck.

“The two most important people in the building are the head coach and the quarterback,” Schneider said. “I was really blessed to start with Ron Wolf. He traded for Brett Favre right when he got there, then he acquired Matt Hasselbeck, Mark Brunell, Ty Detmer, Aaron Brooks—I may be missing somebody in there—but I don’t feel like we’ve done, and me personally, have done a good enough job of continuing to acquire quarterbacks all the way through. It’s a little bit more difficult now because we don’t have NFL Europe so we can’t placing these guys (there)… We need to do a better job developing quarterbacks, period.”

Doing a better job could mean drafting somebody in the later rounds to develop under Wilson, but the Seahawks will also do their due diligence on top quarterbacks just in case something strange happens on draft day. Again, this in part goes back to Schneider’s history in Green Bay, where in 2005, the Packers drafted Aaron Rodgers, despite having Favre, because Rodgers slid so far, going from a presumed top pick to being available to the Packers at No. 24.

“I was in Green Bay when Aaron Rodgers fell,” Schneider said. “Aaron Rodgers was supposed to be the first pick in the draft, and we weren’t necessarily as prepared as we should have been for him to fall. When you get to draft day, you just want to make decisions like gameday, like you’re totally prepared. Quite frankly, when we acquired Aaron that day, we had to make some more calls during the draft, which you never really want to do, like, ‘OK, why is he falling?’ You never know what’s going to happen.”

Having an in-his-prime franchise quarterback is a luxury the Seahawks have had for several years, and it means they don’t feel pressured to reach for a quarterback at any point in the draft. The presence of Wilson, and the lack of quarterback picks in the past, do not, however, mean the Seahawks won’t pick a quarterback if the right value is there to be had.

NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock's Top 5 Quarterbacks

1 / 5




NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock’s Top 5 Quarterbacks

1. Sam Darnold, USC

Overview (via NFL.com): At the end of the day, Darnold has NFL size, arm strength, accuracy, pocket mobility, poise and field reading capability. His windup is an eyesore for sure, but he has the velocity to mitigate the additional release time. While Darnold has the mental toughness and talent to start tomorrow, early sideline seasoning could help him better process coverages in an attempt to eliminate future interceptions. Darnold has the tools to thrive in any system and doesn’t have to have perfect protection to succeed. His floor is solid starter, but he has the ceiling to be one of the top tier quarterbacks in the game as he gains more experience.

2. Josh Allen, Wyoming

Overview (via NFL.com): Likely be the biggest boom-or-bust quarterback prospect in the draft. Allen’s size and arm talent are prototypical for early first-round picks, but it’s rare to find a quarterback with such a low college completion rate become a successful pro. Allen’s receivers struggled to separate, but there were plenty of times where his lack of anticipation and post-snap plan did him in. Allen can make some truly special throws, but his ability to improve the mental part of his game will determine whether he’s a good NFL starter or just another big, strong-armed guy.

3. Josh Rosen, UCLA

Overview (via NFL.com): Josh Rosen’s footwork and mechanics make him as pretty a quarterback as you will find in this year’s draft. The biggest concern with Rosen is that his on-field success requires many elements to stay on schedule. He lacks plus arm strength, so identifying coverage (pre- and post-snap) and throwing with anticipation takes on added importance. Rosen has the pocket poise, accuracy and intelligence to become a good NFL starter, but he needs to be willing to take what defenses give him more frequently. Rosen will need to quell concerns surrounding leadership and coachability early on in order to establish a strong first impression and get his career off on the right foot.

4. Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

Overview (via NFL.com): Spread quarterbacks have had limited success as have small quarterbacks. Mayfield falls into both categories and has to prove he can transcend th Women’s DeAndre Hopkins Houston Texans Nike Elite Navy Blue Team Color Football Jersey ose perceived deficiencies on the next level. Having complete command of the Oklahoma offense isn’t an automatic precursor for NFL success, but Mayfield’s ability to process, extend plays and throw with accuracy give him a good shot. He’ll be somewhat scheme-dependent so whoever takes him will need to be willing to build their offense around his strengths.

5. Lamar Jackson, Louisville

Overview (via NFL.com): Evaluating Jackson against the NFL standards for the position will cause him to come up short. However, he has rare speed and athleticism and can single-handedly win games. Jackson’s accuracy is clearly spotty and teams must decide the level of accuracy they are willing to live with relative to his ability to create explosive plays. Jackson may need to operate in an offense ready to integrate RPOs (run/pass options) along with heavy play-action. Like Deshaun Watson in 2017, Jackson has the ability to counter mental mistakes and turnovers with a high number of explosive, touchdown-making plays. He has star potential, but his success will rest heavily upon his ability to stay healthy.

With the NFL Draft coming up, Seahawks.com is taking a position-by-position look at where things currently stand on the Seahawks’ roster, as well as the top prospects at each position. We’ll also look at Seattle’s draft history at each position under general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll.

The Seahawks currently hold 8 picks in the 2018 draft, which begins April 26 in Dallas.

Seattle’s 2018 Draft Picks: Round 1, Pick 18, No. 18 overall; Round 4, Pick 20, No. 120 overall; Round 5, Pick 4, No. 141 overall; Round 5, Pick 9, No. 146 overall; Round 5, Pick 19, No. 156 overall; Round 5, Pick 31, Curtis Granderson Jersey  No. 168 overall; Round 7, Pick 8, No. 226 overall; Round 7, Pick 30, No. 248 overall.

So far we’ve covered the offensive line, the defensive line, tight end, linebacker, running back, and cornerback, and today we take a look at receiver. Tomorrow we’ll turn our attention to the safeties.

Draft History Under Schneider and Carroll: Golden Tate (No. 60 overall, 2010), Jameson Konz (No. 245, 2010), Kris Durham (No. 107, 2011), Chris Harper (No. 123, 2013), Paul Richardson (No. 45, 2014), Kevin Norwood (No. 123, 2014), Tyler Lockett (No. 69, 2015), Kenny Lawler (No. 243, 2016), Amara Darboh (No. 106, 2017), David Moore (No. 226, 2017).

Where The Seahawks Stand

With Paul Richardson leaving in free agency, it would appear the Seahawks have a pretty clear top two receivers at the moment in Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, then a wide-open competition behind them. While both of those two have significant experience as starters, particularly Baldwin who has emerged as one of the game’s top receivers in recent years, none of the other returning receivers have a lot experience under their belts. Tanner McEvoy, who made the roster as an undrafted rookie in 2016, has played some over the past two years, though his biggest role has been on special teams, while 2017 third-round pick Amara Darboh played sparingly as a rookie. Both Carroll and Schneider have said this offseason that they hope to see Darboh make a leap in in his second season. The Seahawks also bring back 2017 seventh-round pick David M Luke Maile Jersey oore, who spent most of last season on the practice squad, as well as Cyril Grayson Jr., a former track standout who signed last year as a rookie free agent despite having no college football experience.

The Seahawks also bolstered that group by acquiring Marcus Johnson as part of the trade that sent Michael Bennett to Philadelphia, and they signed former Cardinals receiver Jaron Brown as a free agent.

If the Seahawks aren’t done adding at receiver, their recent history shows they are willing to address that position relatively early, having taken Richardson early in the second round, and having made a rare-under-Schneider trade up to get Lockett near the top of the third round.

NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock's Top 5 Wide Receivers

Check out which players NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock pegs as the top wide receivers in the 2018 NFL Draft.





1. D.J. Moore, Maryland

4. Christian Kirk, Texas A&M

T-5. Anthony Miller, Memphis

T-5. James Washington, Oklahoma State

John Raoux





1 / 6




NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock’s Top 5 Receivers

1. D.J. Moore, Maryland

Overview (via NFL.com): Moore is bigger than former Terrapin wideout Stefon Diggs, but their playing style and athletic ability while at Maryland are similar. Moore doesn’t have the height and length teams look for outside and may become a full-time option from the slot. He clearly has the short-area quickness and talent after the catch to handle those duties, but his route-running needs to become more focused and fast to unlock his potential. Teams are high on Moore’s potential and believe he has the talent and traits to become a good WR2 in the league.

2. Calvin Ridley, Alabama

Overview (via  Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 57 Jaime Garcia Toronto Blue Jays Scarlet Canada Day Jersey Red NFL.com): Ridley has game-changing talent complete with blazing speed and rare route-running ability for a college prospect. He ran the full route tree at Alabama, has experience working in a pro-style attack and is a plug-and-play starter on day Teoscar Hernandez Jersey  one. He must improve his ability to defeat press corners off the snap or he’ll become a feast or famine target. Ridley’s elite speed and separation talent gives him the potential to become one of the more productive and dangerous receivers in the league.

3. Courtland Sutton, SMU

Overview (via NFL.com): Sutton is a possession receiver who has the size and toughness to handle a heavier target load if necessary, but he will need to improve as a route runner because his play speed and separation is nothing special. Sutton’s ability to win in contested catch situations could get him early playing time as a second or third receiver, but he may not have the explosiveness to ever become a top-flight WR1.

4. Christian Kirk, Texas A&M

Overview (via NFL.com): Kirk is a well-built, mentally tough slot target whose game is built around pace more than explosiveness. His lack of speed and length make him less likely to impact games down the field, but his footwork, route tempo and hands should give him an opportunity to find catches underneath. Kirk’s ability to help in the return game is a plus, but the difference between average and good as a receiver could depend on finding the right fit.

T-5. James Washington, Oklahoma State

Overview (via NFL.com): Washington is a top-heavy receiver with dangerous build-up speed who has a three year history of hitting chunk plays thanks  Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey to his speed and ball tracking. Washington is more gradual than sudden with check marks in the vertical categories but minuses in categories like route running and hands. Washington has the potential to compete as a WR2 for a team looking to stretch the field. His limitations and dependence upon his quarterback’s deep ball accuracy makes the chasm between his ceiling and floor a little wider.

T-5. Anthony Miller, Memphis

Overview (via NFL.com): Ultra-competitive and highly productive, Miller plays with a chip on his shoulder that has driven him to out-work the man across from him. While he played both inside and out for Memphis, some teams could struggle with figuring out his best fit. His inconsistent hands are definitely a concern, but his ability to get open and to work all three levels of the field increase his chances for success as a WR3.

A Game-By-Game B Danny Barnes Jersey reakdown Of The Seattle Seahawks’ 2018 Schedule

The Seahawks’ 2018 schedule was released on Thursday, and now that we know the details, let’s take a game-by-game look at the schedule, which includes five prime-time games and the team’s first trip to London. As a reminder, single-game tickets for Seahawks home games are on sale now.

Week 1: Sun. 9/9 at Denver Broncos, 1:25 p.m., FOX

The Seahawks open on the road for the second straight season, and will do so against a former AFC West rival. This will be Seattle’s first regular-season game in Denver since a 2010 loss at Mile High Stadium. Since then the Seahawks have played the Broncos twice, beating them in Super Bowl XLVIII, then again in the 2014 regular season.

Week 2: Mon. 9/17 at Chicago Bears, 5:15 p.m., ESPN

The Seahawks open their season with consecutive road games for the third time in eight years, having also done so in 2011 and 2015. On a positive note, playing in Chicago in September beats a late-season trip there when weather can be a serious factor.

Week 3: Sun. 9/23 vs Dallas Cowboys, 1:25 p.m., FOX

The Seahawks have won nine straight home openers, a streak that includes Russell Wilson’s and Bobby Wagner’s first home game as Seahawks, a 2012 victory over the Cowboys. This is a rematch of Seattle’s Christmas Eve victory over the Cowboys in 2017.

Week 4: Sun. 9/30 at Arizona Cardinals, 1:05 p.m., FOX

The Seahawks are 4-0-1 in their last five at Arizona, but will be facing a Cardinals squad led by a new head coach, Steve Wilks, and a new starting quarterback, as Arizona has overhauled that spot, led by the acquisition of former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford.

Week 5: Sun. 10/7 vs Los Angeles Rams, 1:25 p.m., FOX

The defending NFC West champs return to the place where they helped lock down the division title late last season. It’s safe to say the Seahawks are expecting a much better performance out of themselves this time around.

Week 6: Sun. 10/14 at Oakland Raiders (London), 10 a.m., FOX

The Seahawks will play in London for the first time, taking part in the first NFL game at the new home of Tottenham Hotspur. As expected, the Seahawks will have their bye the following week to allow some recovery time after the long trip.

Week 7: Sun. 10/21 BYE

Week 8: Sun. 10/28 at Detroit Lions, 10 a.m., FOX

Seattle’s first game in Detroit since 2012 will see the Seahawks going against a number of familiar faces, including cornerback DeShawn Shead and tight end Luke Willson, who both signed with the Lions this offseason, as well as receiver Golden Tate.

Week 9: Sun. 11/4 vs Los Angeles Chargers, 1:05 p.m., CBS

The Chargers come to Seattle for the first time since 2010, a memorable Seahawks victory that included kick return touchdowns by Leon Washington, and two interceptions by a rookie free safety named Earl Thomas.

Week 10: Sun. 11/11 at Los Angeles Rams, 1:25 p.m., CBS

The Seahawks earned one of their most impressive victories of the season at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum last year, and this again figures to be an important game in the division standings. This season marks the first time since 2009 these teams won’t see each other late in the season, with the Rams having played in Seattle in December or January every year since 2010.

Week 11: Thu. 11/15 vs Green Bay Packers, 5:20 p.m., FOX/NFLN

The Seahawks and Packers play in different divisions, but this is starting to feel like a rivalry game nonetheless, as the two teams have played six times since the 2012 season, including the Seahawks’ memorable NFC championship game victory at CenturyLink Field in January of 2015. Since then the Packers have won three straight, all at Lambeau Field.

Week 12: Sun. 11/25 at Carolina Panthers, 10 a.m., FOX

The final of Seattle’s three 10 a.m. PT games—they had none last year—comes against another familiar non-division opponent. This will be the seventh matchup, postseason included, between these two teams since 2012. Most recently the Seahawks beat the Panthers 40-7 at CenturyLink Field in 2016.

Week 13: Sun. 12/2 vs San Francisco 49ers, 5:20 p.m., NBC

Richard Sherman’s much anticipated return to CenturyLink Field will take place in prime time. More significantly, by this late in the season, we’ll know just how real the 49ers’ strong finish to the 2017 season was, and just how good quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is in his first full season as a starter.

Week 14: Mon. 12/10 vs Minnesota Vikings, 5:15 p.m., ESPN

One of the NFC’s top teams in 2017 comes to Seattle for a Monday night showdown in Week 14, but with a n Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey ew quarterback, Kirk Cousins, leading the way. This game features a free agency swap, of sorts, at defensive tackle, with the Seahawks adding former Vikings Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen, and the Vikings signing Sheldon Richardson.

Week 15: Sun. 12/16 at San Francisco 49ers, 1:05 p.m., FOX

The Seahawks and 49ers play for the second time in three weeks, with the Seahawks looking to improve a perfect 4-0 record at Levi’s Stadium.

Week 16: Sun. 12/23 vs Kansas City Chiefs, 5:20 p.m., NBC

Seattle’s final prime-time game comes against Andy Reid’s Chiefs, who have made the playoffs in four of the past five seasons, including back-to-back division titles. The Chiefs still figure to be one of the AFC’s top teams, but are starting a new era at quarterback with Patrick Mahomes after trading longtime starter Alex Smith to Washington.

Week 17: Sun. 12/30 vs Arizona Cardinals, 1:25 p.m., FOX

The Seahawks close out their regular season by hosting the Cardinals for a second straight season. As noted above, the Seahawks have enjoyed success in Arizona in recent years, but oddly enough, struggled at home against the  Luke Maile Jersey Cardinals, losing four of the past five.

Danny Barnes Jersey 2018 NFL Draft Preview: Do The Seahawks Need To Address Cornerback Early?

With the NFL Draft coming up, Seahawks.com is taking a position-by-position look at where things currently stand on the Seahawks’ roster, as well as the top prospects at each position. We’ll also look at Seattle’s draft history at each position under general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll.

The Seahawks currently hold 8 picks in the 2018 draft, which begins April 26 in Dallas.

Seattle’s 2018 Draft Picks: Round 1, Pick 18, No. 18 overall; Round 4, Pick 20, No. 120 overall; Round 5, Pick 4, No. 141 overall; Round 5, Pick 9, No. 146 overall; Round 5, Pick 19, No. 156 overall; Round 5, Pick 31, No. 168 overall; Round 7, Pick 8, No. 226 overall; Round 7, Pick 30, No. 248 overall.

So far we’ve covered the offensive line, the defensive line, tight end, linebacker, and running back, and today we take a look at cornerback. Tomorrow we’ll turn our attention to the receivers.

Draft History Under Schneider and Carroll: Walter Thurmond (No. 111 overall, 2010), Richard Sherman (No. 154, 2011), Byron Maxwell (No. 173, 2011), Jeremy Lane (No. 172, 2012), Tharold Simon (No. 138, 2013), Eric Pinkins (No. 208, 2014: Pinkins later switched to LB), Tye Smith (No. 170, 2015), Shaquill Griffin (No. 90, 2017), Mike Tyson (No. 187, 2017).

Where The Seahawks Stand

Cornerback is another position that will look quite a bit different in 2018, most notably because longtime starting left cornerback Richard Sherman is now in San Francisco. And it’s not just Sherman who will play elsewhere this season—2016 starter DeShawn Shead signed with the Lions as a free agent, while Jeremy Lane, who also had significant starting experience, was released earlier in the offseason.

Yet those moves don’t leave the Seahawks devoid of talent at cornerback. Shaquill Griffin, a 2017 third-round pick, played very well as a rookie and will help solidify that position group going forward following the departure of an All-Pro like Sherman. In fact, Griffin played well enough last season that Carroll compared it to Sherman’s rookie season.

“It’s a really big deal,” Carroll said of Griffin’s emergence at last month’s league meetings. “And when we look at it, it has been really interesting to compare his first season and Richard’s first season to kind of gauge, what is the impact he is going to have and what kind of player can he become? Because he had a fantastic year and withstood all of the challenge—he had 84, 85 targets this year, and Sherm had 84, 85 as well his rookie season. So you could see him under all circumstances against great players and saw him come through. So there is no indication that he should be anything but on the upswing and the positive, should be factoring into being a dominant football player in time, but it will all come back to how he comes back and how he works and how he prepares, but he is a very level-headed kid and I think he is going to have a chance to have a fantastic career.”

Another key returning player is Justin Coleman, who took over the nickel role early last season and had a very strong season, including two interception returns for touchdowns. The Seahawks also have Mike Tyson, a 2017 draft pick who spent most of the season on the practice squad while making the transition from safety, his position in college. Neiko Thorpe, a special teams standout, could also work himself into the competition for playing time at corner, as could DeAndre Elliot, who missed last season after suffering a dislocated ankle in the preseason. The Seahawks also signed former 49ers starting cornerback Dontae Johnson if they prefer a more experienced option opposite Griffin. Byron Maxwell, who took over a starting role after Sherman’s injury, remains a free agent, though Carroll said earlier this offseason he hoped the team could re-sign the veteran corner.

Despite having a number of options, it would make sense for the Seahawks to add to that group via the draft after losing three experienced cornerbacks—four if Maxwell isn’t re-signed—from last year’s roster. The question then becomes when they would choose to do so. The Seahawks have had a lot of success acquiring cornerbacks on the final day of the draft, most notably landing Sherman in the fifth round, Maxwell and Lane in the sixth round, and Shead as an undrafted free agent. In fact, as a third-rounder, Griffin was the highest-drafted cornerback of the Carroll and Schneider era. So while it’s possible the Seahawks could like a cornerback enough to take him early in the draft, don’t assume a late-round pick isn’t capable of making an impact on Seattle’s defense.

NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock’s Top 5 Cornerbacks

1. Denzel Ward, Ohio State

Overview (via NFL.com): Ward has the experience and talent to handle duties on the outside, but his lack of play strength combined with his elite footwork might be the deciding factor for a move inside. Ward is outstanding as a mirror-and-match cornerback with great route feel who is able to maintain tight coverage around the field with good technique and pattern recogn Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey ition. He should become an early starter at nickel cornerback with the talent to make an immediate impact for a defense that faces a pass-happy division foe twice per year.

2. Jaire Alexander, Louisville

Overview (via NFL.com): Twitchy and quick, Alexander is an instinctive cornerback with the ability to anticipate routes and the quickness to close on throws and make plays on the ball. He tape in 2017 was uneven due to issues with a sprained knee which could raise concerns over his durability considering his slender build. When healthy, he has the potential to become a second cornerback, but teams may view him as a full time nickel cornerback who is able to avoid the rigors of excessive run support.

3. Mike Hughes, UCF

Overview (via NFL.com): Hughes simply hasn’t had the game experience he needs to put together the consistency in coverage that teams might like to see. He’s a projection-based prospect who has shown  Teoscar Hernandez Jersey twitch, ball production and toughness in a small sample size. Despite being a little short, he is likely to stay outside in coverage. While teams wait for him to gain coverage experience, they can certainly lean on his tremendous talents as a return man. Hughes has potential, but there is still work to be done in coverage.

4. Isaiah Oliver, Colorado

Overview (via NFL.com): Oliver possesses an outstanding combination of size, speed and length and those traits are highly coveted by NFL general managers. There are coverage holes in Oliver’s game and he needs to play with increased toughness, but he’s just scratching the surface of what his talent could allow him to do on the next level with more experience and technique work. Oliver has a high ceiling as a bump-and-run, lockdown corner, but might benefit from a limited role his rookie season.

T-5. Donte Jackson, LSU

Overview (via NFL.com): Cover corner with below-average size, but elite speed and athleticism. Jackson lacks instincts but has rare closing burst so there will be feast-or-famine games in his future. Due to his slight Curtis Granderson Jersey  frame, teams are sure to test his resolve and durability in run support. Jackson’s athletic traits should ensure that he makes plenty of plays on the ball, but he’ll need to develop better route recognition and focus in order to reach his full potential. Jackson should find early work as a third cornerback.

T-5. Josh Jackson, Iowa

Overview (via NFL.com): Long-armed ball-hawk who understands how to maximize his length to disrupt the catch and take it away. Jackson could be labeled a “one-year wonder”, but 27 passes defensed in a single season isn’t random. He’s talented but inexperienced and he has coverage holes that could be exploited early in his career. Jackson’s draft stock likely took a hit with his average forty time and unimpressive work in position drills. However, he is armed with route anticipation, ball skills, and NFL length that teams covet in a press-man corner. It may take time, but the tools are there to be an early starter.

Seattle Seahawks 20 Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey 18 Schedule Announced, Includes Five Prime-Time Games

The NFL announced the 2018 schedule on Thursday, and the Seattle Seahawks will open at  Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap Denver on September 9. Seattle is scheduled to play five prime-time games, including four at CenturyLink Field, marking the first time the Seahawks have hosted four prime-time games in a season. This will be the sixth consecutive season the Seahawks have played at least four prime-time games.

The Seahawks open on the road for the second year in a row, and with a Week 2 Monday night game at Chicago, this marks the third time in the past eight seasons Seattle has opened with two straight road games, having also done so in 2011 and 2015. The Seahawks do not, however, have any other back-to-back road games other than their games at London against the Raiders and at Detroit, which are separated by a Week 7 bye.

Following those two road games to start the season, the Seahawks’ home opener comes against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, September 23. The Seahawks then play at Arizona in Week 4, where they’ll try to extend a five-game unbeaten streak at University of Phoenix Stadium.

The defending NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams come to Seattle in Week 5, then the Seahawks travel to London in Week 6 to play the Raiders, a game that will kick off at 10 a.m. PT. As expected, the Seahawks will have their bye week following their trip overseas. The London game marks one of three 10 a.m. PT kickoffs for the Seahawks, who also play in the early slot for their games at Detroit and at Carolina.

After playing the Lions in Detroit in Week 8, the Seahawks will host the Chargers in Week 9, then travel to Los Angeles to face the Rams in Week 10. In Week 11, the Seahawks host the Packers on Thursday Night Football, their first of four home prime-time games in a six-week span.

Seattle plays at Carolina in Week 12, then returns home to host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football on Dec. 2. The Seahawks host a second straight prime-time game in Week 14, with the Minnesota Vikings coming to town for Monday Night Football.

In Week 15 the Seahawks play at San Francisco, their second game against the 49ers in three weeks. The Seahawks finish out their 2018 regular season with back-to-back home games, a Sunday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16, followed by a Week 17 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Single-game tickets for Seattle Seahawks home games are on sale now.

Seahawks Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey 2018 Free Agency Tracker

Who’s staying, who’s leaving and what new additions have been made to the Seahawks’ roster?

NFL free agency officially opened at 1 p.m. PT on Wednesday, March 14 (an initial list of the League’s 525 free agents can be found right here), and we’ll use this space to track all the Seahawks-related roster movement as the NFL’s free-agent frenzy continues throughout the next several weeks.

April 17

Smith Signs With Falcons: Defensive tackle Garrison Smith, who spent time on the Seahawks’ practice squad and active roster last season, signed with the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday. Smith played in eight games for Seattle in 2017, recording a career-high nine tackles.

April 16

Seahawks Re-Sign Davis, Dawson: Austin Davis, the backup to starting quarterback Russell Wilson last season, re-signed with the Seahawks on Monday. Linebacker Paul Dawson, who was promoted off Seattle’s practice squad late last season, was also re-signed. Additionally, three players, including center Joey Hunt, defensive end Branden Jackson, and long snapper Tyler Ott, signed their exclusive rights free agent tenders.

April 13

Seahawks Add Former Pro Bowl Kicker, QB Depth; Two Players Sign ERFA Tenders: The Seahawks signed former Oakland Raiders Pro Bowl kicker Sebastian Janikowski on Friday. The Seahawks also signed Stephen Morris to add depth at quarterback behind starter Russell Wilson. Additionally, running back J.D. McKissic and defensive end Quinton Jefferson signed their exclusive rights free agent tenders.

April 12

Jordan Signs Tender With Seahawks: Defensive end Dion Jordan signed his restricted free agent tender with the Seahawks on Thursday, making official his return to Seattle for the 2018 season. Jor Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap dan, a former first-round draft pick, finished 2017 in Seattle with a career-high 4.0 sacks through five games played late in the season.

April 11

Johnson Joins Seattle: The Seahawks added depth at cornerback on Wednesday, signing former San Francisco 49ers starter Dontae Johnson. A fourth-round pick out of NC State in 2014, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Johnson has shown the versatility to play both as an outside corner as well as inside as a nickel back.

Garvin Goes To Miami: Linebacker Terence Garvin, who had 25 tackles, 1.0 sack, a pass defensed, and a forced fumble through 15 games played in Seattle last season, signed a free-agent deal with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday.

March 30

Rawls Signs With New York: Running back Thomas Rawls, who spent his first three NFL seasons in Seattle with the Seahawks, signed a free-agent deal with the New York Jets on Friday. Rawls, who joined the Seahawks as an undrafted rookie out of Central Michigan, rushed for 830 yards on 147 carries in 2015, good for a league-best 5.6 yard-per-carry average. The following season, he set a franchise postseason record by rushing for 161 yards on 27 carries in Seattle’s wild card playoff win over Detroit.

March 28

Coleman Signs Tender With Seahawks: On Wednesday, cornerback Justin Coleman signed the restricted free agent tender that Seattle extended earlier this month. Coleman, who the Seahawks acquired from New England for a seventh-round pick just before the start of the 2017 regular season, was a breakout player for Seattle last year. He took over the nickel corner spot and recorded the first two interceptions of his career, both of which he returned for touchdowns. He finished the season with 35 tackles and nine passes defensed, also showing a knack for rushing the passer on corner blitzes, recording 1.5 sacks and three quarterback hits. Coleman was also one of Seattle’s top special teams players, recording seven tackles, tied for second most on the team.

March 24

Stephen Signs With Seahawks: Another former Vikings defensive lineman was added to the mix on Saturday, when Seattle signed tackle Shamar Stephen. A seventh-round pick out of the University of Connecticut, the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Stephen, 27, spent his first four NFL seasons in Minnesota, where he was active for 52 games and started 20, including all 16 regular-season contests during the 2016 season.

March 23

Seahawks Re-Sign Smith: Seattle brought back defensive end Marcus Smith, a former first-round pick who played for the Seahawks last season after three years in Philadelphia. Smith, 25, had 15 tackles and 2.5 sacks last season, as well as two forced fumbles, one of which was a sack-fumble that was returned for a touchdown by Bobby Wagner.

Seahawks Add Johnson: The Seahawks bolstered their interior line depth, signing veteran defensive tackle Tom Johnson. Johnson, 33, started 15 games last season for the Vikings, who led the league in total defense and scoring defense. Johnson, who played in NFL Europe, the CFL and the Arena Football League before establishing himself in the NFL, has 163 tackles and 21 sacks in his NFL career, including 2.0 sacks and 32 tackles last year.

March 2 Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey 2

Davis Re-Signs: The Seahawks re-signed Mike Davis on Thursday, a move that returns Seattle’s most productive running back from last season. Through six games played in 2017, Davis racked up 240 yards on 68 carries and also accounted for the Seahawks’ longest rush of the season when he recorded a 33-yard run in Seattle’s final game of the year.

March 21

Seahawks Add Fluker: Seattle bolstered its offensive line by signing D.J. Fluker, a former first-round pick out of Alabama. Fluker, the 11th pick of the 2013 draft, has started 65 games in his career, initially playing right tackle before moving to right guard. After four seasons with the Chargers, Fluker spent last season with the New York Giants, where he played under Mike Solari, who the Seahawks named their offensive line coach this offseason.

Willson Signs With Lions: Luke Willson, a tight end who the Seahawks took in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, signed a free-agent deal with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday. Willson spent his first five NFL seasons in Seattle, where he appeared in 72 games, catching 89 passes for 1,129 yards and 11 touchdowns.

March 17

Seattle Signs Alexander: The Seahawks added depth at safety Saturday, signing free agent Maurice Alexander, a former starter for the St. Louis and Los Angeles Rams. Alexander was the Rams’ starting strong safety  Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap in 2016, recording 50 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defensed in 14 games. He opened last season as a starter, but after starting the first four games of the season, he was inactive for Los Angeles’ Week 5 loss to Seattle, then was waived the following week.

Seahawks Add Brown: The Seahawks signed former Arizona Cardinals receiver Jaron Brown Saturday, a speedy target who averaged 15.4 yards per catch last season. Brown caught 31 passes for 477 yards and four touchdowns last season, all career highs, while starting eight of 16 games.

Tobin Signs With Patriots: Offensive lineman Matt Tobin, who the Seahawks acquired in a trade before the start of last season, signed a free-agent deal with the New England Patriots. Tobin was active for 15 of Seattle’s games last year.

March 16

Mingo Signs With Seahawks: The Seahawks pote Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap ntially added help at two positions, signing former 2013 first-round pick Barkevious Mingo. Mingo is listed as a linebacker, but has also played defensive end during his career. His size and athletic profile, as well as that positional versatility, suggests he could be used both as a strongside linebacker as well as a situational pass-rusher.

Dickson Signed By Seattle: The Seahawks added veteran depth at tight end, signing former Baltimore Raven and Carolina  Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey Panther Ed Dickson. Dickson, who has not missed a game since the 2012 season, gives the Seahawks depth at a position where last year’s starter Jimmy Graham has departed in free agency, and Luke Willson remains a free agent. Dickson is coming off of one of his more productive seasons as a pass-catcher in 2017, gaining 437 yards on 30 catches while averaging a career-best 14.6 yards per catch. He is also known as a good blocking tight end, and was ranked as the top pass-blocking tight end in the NFL last year by Pro Football Focus.

King Re-Signs With Seattle: The Seahawks also re-signed cornerback Akeem King, who spent part of last season on their practice squad. King, a seventh-round pick out of San Jose State in 2015, appeared in five games with the Atlanta Falcons as a rookie. He spent 2016 on injured reserve with the Falcons, then was waived prior to the start of the 2017 season before being signed to Seattle’s practice squad last September.

Graham Goes To Green Bay: After three seasons in Seattle, Jimmy Graham is heading to the Packers. Graham, who was acquired in a 2015 trade, leaves the Seahawks as the franchise leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns by a tight end.

Richardson Lands In Minnesota: Defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, who the Seahawks acquired in a trade with the New York Jets before the start of last season, signed a free-agent deal with the Minnesota Vikings. With Seattle, Richardson appeared in 15 games, recording 44 tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble.

March 15

Richardson Inks Deal With Washington: Wideout Paul Richardson signed a free-agent deal with the Washington Redskins Thursday, leaving Seattle after four seasons with the Seahawks. Richardson, a second-round pick in 2014 out of Colorado, caught 95 passes for 1,302 yards and eight touchdowns with the Seahawks.

March 14

Shead Signs With Lions: Defensive back DeShawn Shead, who the Seahawks released Monday, signed with the Detroit Lions Wednesday. Seattle parted ways with Shead th Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey is week because the team and Shead both went into the 2018 offseason expecting him to be a free agent after he played 2017 on a one-year deal. But because Shead was on the physically unable to perform list for most of the season, the NFL ruled that his contract tolled, meaning the Seahawks could have kept him under the terms of the deal he signed last offseason coming off of a serious knee injury. Shead originally signed with the Seahawks in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Portland State.

2018 NFL Dr Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey aft Preview: Do The Seahawks Need To Add More At Tight End?

With the NFL Draft coming up, Seahawks.com is taking a position-by-position look at where things currently stand on the Seahawks’ roster, as well as the top prospects at each position. We’ll also look at Seattle’s draft history at each position under general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll.

The Seahawks currently hold 8 picks in the 2018 draft, which begins April 26 in Dallas.

Seattle’s 2018 Draft Picks: Round 1, Pick 18, No. 18 overall; Round 4, Pick 20, No. 120 overall; Round 5, Pick 4, No. 141 overall; Round 5, Pick 9, No. 146 overall; Round 5, Pick 19, No. 156 overall; Round 5, Pick 31, No. 168 overall; Round 7, Pick 8, No. 226 overall; Round 7, Pick 30, No. 248 overall.

So far we’ve covered the Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  offensive line, and the defensive line, and today we take a look at tight end. Tomorrow we’ll turn our attention to the linebackers.

Draft History Under Schneider and Carroll: Anthony McCoy (No. 185 overall, 2010), Luke Willson (No. 158, 2013), Nick Vannett (No. 94, 2016).

Where The Seahawks Stand

Tight end will be a position that looks quite a bit different for the Seahawks when they take the field in 2018. Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson, who played the majority of the snaps over the past three seasons, both signed elsewhere in free agency this offseason, meaning 2016 third-round pick Nick Vannett is the only returning player with any significant playing time under his belt. Also back from last year is former University of Texas quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, who spent most of last season on the practice squad before a late-season call-up.

The Seahawks are expecting Vannett to be ready to take on a bigger role with Willson and Graham gone, but they also added help via free agency, signing Ed Dickson, an eight-year veteran who started 12 games for the Panthers last season.

“Ed’s a real versatile football player,” Carroll said last month at the annual league meetings. “Kind of a situation where he has played behind such a great player in Greg Olsen that we haven’t seen him maybe as much. But again going back to knowing Ed throug Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey h the recruiting process and kind of watching him grow, we’ve always known about his athleticism. He’s an all-around player can play the Y position as well as the X position where he moves a Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey round. Good athlete, good downfield catcher. A guy you can go to in regular situations and normal ball control situations and also down the field so he’s a really, really interesting addition.”

Even with Dickson added to the mix, it’s a good bet that the Seahawks will try to add more to that position group at some point, be it in the draft or by signing an undrafted rookie free agent. Seattle has only picked three tight ends in eight drafts under Carroll and Schneider, but with only three tight ends currently under contract, this Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap  could be a year when they add to that total at some point during draft weekend.

NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock's Top 5 Tight Ends

Check out which players NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock pegs as the top tight ends in the 2018 NFL Draft.

NFL Media Draft Analyst Mike Mayock’s Top 5 Tight Ends

1. Hayden Hurst, South Carolina

Overview (via NFL.com): Hurst’s initial opportunity at athletic stardom came up short in baseball, but he has his second shot and plays like every down could be his last. His fearless play demeanor combined with size, strength and athleticism make him a well-rounded prospect with the versatility to line up all over the field. He’s sure-handed and could become a young quarterback’s safety blanket if he improves elements of his route running. He should see early snaps and has the ability to become a good combination tight end.

2. Dallas Goedert, South Dakota State

Overview (via NFL.com): Goedert is a very talented pass catching tight end with the ability to work all three levels of the field. His ball focus and ability to make the spectacular catch will make him the darling of fans and media throughout the draft process, but, he still has work to do. Goedert dominated a lower level of competition and will have to prove he can uncover and block against bigger, more explosive athletes as a pro. The size, speed and talent is there for him to succeed as a very good combo tight end if he works and plays with a little more urgency.

3. Mike Gesicki, Penn State

Overview (via NFL.com): If you are looking for a tight end who can line up and help in the running game, he’s not your guy. However, if you want a pass-catcher who can get open and has the ball skills to win against linebackers and safeties, he might be your guy. Gesicki needs to improve his play strength and his issues as a blocker could limit the amount of teams who will target him, but he has a chance to become one of the better pass catching tight ends in the league.

4. Mark Andrews, Oklahoma

Overview (via NFL.com): Andrews is a former wideout who plays with a receiver’s mentality in a tight end’s body. He is a pass-catcher with a deft feel for route adjustments and operating in space against zone coverage. Andrews is a big, reliable target who doesn’t need a spacious catch window to haul it in. Despite his size, he lacks the desire and fundamentals as a blocker which will hurt his standing with some teams. He should be able to find early catches and production as a solid pass-catching tight end in the league.

5. Will Dissly, Washington

Overview (via NFL.com): Inexperienced but improving, Dissly is a Y-tight end prospect who has the potential to become a much more productive and effective player than where he stands right now. Dissly has decent size and is nothing special as an athlete, but he displays the toughness and talent to become an NFL blocker as a Day 3 selection.
