Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the top needs, in his opinion, that the Seahawks need to address in the upcoming NFL Draft. The top needs, says Clinton, are TE, OT, OG, and OLB. He gives us two selections per each position, and where he thinks the Seahawks will select them in the draft.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another free agency signing today that involved the Hawks bringing in yet another DE on the young free agency period, this time Michael Bennett.

Not only will this bring a top flight NFL receiver (in his prime) to the Seahawks, but also has to bring the Hawks offense up the echelons in the NFC. The biggest questions now will be, will Harvin be able to keep himself healthy this year, and who will be the odd man out in the WR corps.
