Looking back at the season, Rob discusses some of the players who impacted this team the most from the 2018 draft class. Did John Schneider regain some of the magic from his earlier years, or is it just a trend of continued success? One thing for sure we can count on is that Schneider won't be content with four draft picks and will most likely trade back to accumulate extra picks on Day 3 of the draft.
The Senior Bowl is this weekend and Rob talks about why this game hold so much significance for draft analysts. Who are some of the players to look for? Rob talks about players like Montez Sweat, a pass rusher from Mississippi State and Terry McLaurin who have impressed so far this week at the Senior Bowl. Two local lineman, one from Washington and another from Washington State, have also performed well and could be potential draft targets for Seattle.
Rob and Brandan spend some time talking about a potential candidate in the draft for the big-bodied wide receiver that Coach Carroll has seemingly been looking for. D.K. Metcalf of Ole MIss has some injury issues that could cause him to fall down the board and potentially into the second round. His father, uncle and grandfather all played in the NFL.
Rob lays out a scenario where, if Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray falls in the draft, the Seahawks should consider taking him. Though Rob is high on the Murray's potential, it wouldn't necessarily be with the goal in mind of immediately trading Russ. Instead it could serve as a fallback plan in case contract negotiations don't go well in this offseason and if Russell Wilson ends up going the franchise tag route down the road.
