The Seattle Seahawks left themselves with only three picks in the draft after making trades for Jamal Adams and Gabe Jackson. Ultimately, they only made two swaps over the three days and still finished with only three picks, the smallest draft class in franchise history. Pete Carroll and John Schneider met with the media after the draft and talked about their three picks, a position swap for Damien Lewis, and the potential for Richard Sherman to return to the Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks make history with the smallest draft class in franchise history. Maybe history is on their side though. The previous two classes of only five picks (1994 and 1997) each had a Hall of Fame offensive linemen selected. While that may be setting the bar too high for Florida tackle Stone Forsythe, the Seahawks were intrigued enough to pair their final two picks to make a move up in the sixth round to close out their 2021 NFL Draft class.   Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast...

The Seahawks made their first draft move ahead of their fourth round selection, moving back in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They added a sixth round pick and were able to take Oklahoma cornerback Tre Brown. While Brown lacks the size of what we've come to expect from a prototypical Seahawks cornerback, Pete Carroll said the team drafted Brown with the expectation for him to play outside rather than nickel.   Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via: Apple Podcasts | Google...

The Seattle Seahawks waited until their third and final pick of the draft to take a player on the offensive line. EJ Snyder joins the show to talk about how Forsythe has excelled in college as a pass blocker. But what is the catch? It turns out that his ability to block in the run game is what dropped him all the way to the sixth round. Can Duane Brown and Hall of Fame guard Steve Hutchinson coach him up to be a future starting left tackle? If they can, this pick provides a huge value for the...

Seattle Seahawks fans have something in common with former Western Michigan wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge. We both had to wait for about the same amount of time for the pick we were most interested in on Friday to be announced. Eskridge spoke to the media and talked about his ability to play on offense, defense and special teams. He also addressed his ability to play everywhere on the line and not just in the slot.

The Seattle Seahawks definitely have a type when it comes to looking for players at outside corner. We may get some indications from Brown's press conference or Pete Carroll and John Schneider after Day 3. EJ Snyder joins the show as we discuss how Seattle's thoughts on outside corner could be evolving after moving DJ Reed into the starting role last season and considering some of the receivers they routinely have to face within the division. Brown was an outstanding corner in college...

Rather than trade back to get more picks in this draft, the Seattle Seahawks stayed at 56 and took D’Wayne Eskridge out of Western Michigan. If you take a look at some of the highlights up at Field Gulls you'll see the kind of speed the Seahawks love to see at wide receiver. He's also a player who has the ability at kick returner that Seattle fans have been looking for reminiscent of what Tyler Lockett did early on in his career. Eskridge was one of the players Tony Pauline brought up in the...

What's the biggest need for the Seahawks going into the 2021 NFL Draft? Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network is leaning heavy toward the Seahawks improving their offensive line in the draft. Where Seattle sits at the end of the second round, Tony thinks that a future starting right tackle may be available to them at that spot. We also talk about some centers, cornerbacks and wide receivers. A positive note about Seattle's situation is that he says this might be the draft out of the last 10...

EJ Snyder of Bootleg Football is back on the show to talk NFL Draft. In the last episode we focused primarily on cornerback, but there was one more guy who should definitely be on the Seahawks radar defensively. Kicking off the look at this year's draft class on offense, we start at offensive tackle because of the depth of talent available. Could a player like Sam Cosmi fall to the Seahawks in the middle of the second round? If so, would they stay put or move back knowing that would be their...

Through the first half of the 2020 season, the Seahawks offense was on pace to shatter the franchise record books in a number of areas. But things slowed down in the second half of the year as teams made adjustments. Tyler Lockett, for his part, was still able to become the first player in franchise history to record 100 catches. Along with DK Metcalf, Lockett was part of just the second pairing of receivers to both top 1,000 yards in a season. After signing his 4-year, $69.2 million contract...

Seattle Seahawks fans can often list their favorite and least favorite draft choices over the years. But how about the trades that had some of the best (and worst) outcomes? These are not the best trades ever, these are the trades that specifically occurred on draft day. We went live in the Locker Room app this week to pick some of the moves that resulted in some of the best players in Seahawks history coming to Seattle.  For every good move, however, there comes the bad. In the Holmgren era,...

Jackson, who played college football with K.J. Wright, is excited about the possibility of playing with his former teammate, but admits that he's not sure how things will play out for K.J.

Carlos Dunlap was a key factor in helping to turn around the Seahawks defense in 2020. But Dunlap says he feels that the team's run last season was cut short, because they had the capability to go much further. In his press conference with reporters this week he talked about his thoughts surrounding the decision to return, how quickly his contract was signed once it was offered, and the assurance he was given by Russell Wilson that he'd continue as the quarterback in Seattle.  Subscribe to...

Looking at the starting lineup from the first week of the 2020 season, the Seahawks have lost Jarran Reed, Shaquill Griffin and Quinton Dunbar from their starting lineup. K.J. Wright has yet to sign with another team in free agency, which could boost that number to four. Have the Seahawks done enough to fill in the holes on defense with all of those departures? Plus, should the Tyler Lockett contract be enough to silence the doubt that Russell Wilson will be in Seattle long term? Anthony...

In that interview with reporters, Everett talked about the diversity of his skillset and how plans are already underway to get together in the...

With the departure of cornerback Shaquill Griffin to the Jacksonville Jaguars, one of the biggest positions of need for the Seattle Seahawks is filling in behind the former third-round pick. Ahkello Witherspoon may be the answer, but drafting a cornerback in round 2 or 4 may help provide some insurance if the former 49ers cornerback doesn't work out. E.J. Snyder of Windy City Gridiron and Bootleg Football joins the show to talk about a number of cornerbacks who fit the Seahawks mold and could...

Are the Seahawks making the right moves in free agency to this point? Seattle focused heavily on adding to or maintaining the defensive line this past week, and cut Jarran Reed in the process after they were unable to find a trade partner. Carlos Dunlap and Benson Mayowa will be returning and the Seahawks also added Kerry Hyder on the edge.
