Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his Seattle Seahawks offseason analysis. With the rookie additions of players like Luke Willson, Jesse Williams, Christine Michael and Chris Harper, the Seahawks are adding even more depth to an already scary depth chart.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you five rookies that he expects to make an impact for the Seattle Seahawks in 2013. Players like Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Marshawn Lynch, and Kam Chancellor all give Seattle a shot at reaching another Super Bowl.

Watch for Jesse Williams and Chris Harper in 2013.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens talks about Seattle’s 2013 NFL Draft class in comparison to the classes of other teams. I do not believe you can grade a draft class for at least 3 years. Before that you are grading the team on player potential and not production. There is a reason Mel Kiper works for ESPN and not an NFL franchise. Maybe later this offseason I will take a look at the 2010 Seahawks draft class, the first class of the Pete Carroll and John Schneider era.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps the team’s seventh round pick, Ty Powell. Brett says most experts feel Seattle could look to him as a depth option as a situation pass rusher behind Chris Clemons, Bruce Irvin and Cliff Avril. Powell recorded 40 tackles, with 15 for loss, and 8.5 sacks during his senior season. Powell is the first player from the Arkansas school to be drafted in 30 years. Powell played defensive end, linebacker and safety at Harding.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brett Bivens recaps the team’s seventh round pick, Ryan Seymour. Brett says most experts feel Seymour’s versatility could be a key for his hopes of making a crowded roster with Paul McQuistan, James Carpenter, John Moffitt and J.R. Sweezy all returning at the position. The Seahawks selected Seymour with the pick they received when they sent Barrett Ruud to the New Orleans Saints last year.
