NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his first edition of his 7 round 2013 mock draft for the Seahawks. John Schneider and Pete Carroll love this time of year. I’m sure they’re watching film as we type this. Brandon likes guard Kyle Long as their first choice, which falls in the second round. He also likes USC WR Robert Woods and Florida CB Brandon McGee among the 10 draft choices the Seahawks currently possess.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about why Kenjon Barner would be a valuable addition to the Seattle Seahawks. A product of the University of Oregon, Barner has a year of experience as a starter under his belt and has demonstrated excellent speed on the edges and can be a multi-tooled player at the next level. His biggest impact with the Seahawks could potentially be at special teams. Exit Leon Washington. Enter Percy Harvin, & Barner?
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on another Pete Carroll & John Schneider move this week. They traded Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Jay Glazer first broke this story. Matt Flynn is a quarterback who wants his chance to start in the NFL. Brett can’t say wether he would have become outspoken about his unhappiness, but can assure you that he wanted to do more than just hold a clipboard on the sidelines. Good Luck Matt.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us some good reasons why Percy Harvin will make this Seahawks team even better. With his flat out speed, Harvin is the ultimate playmaker. He can take screen passes the distance, can take a handoff the distance and can take a punt or kick for a touchdown. He is one of the most dynamic players in the NFL today according to Brandon. Coupled with Russell Wilson expect some colorful trickeration.
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 D-Lineman, this time Tony McDaniel. This move leads Brett to believe that the slim chance of Alan Branch rejoining the team has faded away. He wanted to see Branch come back to the team, and has a feeling that Alan has overestimated his value. He also fired his agent this week. Tough times.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us a look back in Seattle Seahawks history. Today, Brandon breaks down 5 of the top rookie seasons in Seahawks history.

Brandon does, and he chronicles them here.
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. The Hawks now have the best group of pass rushing DE’s on the planet. Only 4 teams last year eclipsed the number of sacks (38) that these 4 guys did last year. Watch out San Francisco, the 49ers are going to be running for their lives both on and off the field next year.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on free agency signing today that involved the Hawks losing DT/DE Jason Jones, and gaining LEO / DE Cliff Avril from Detroit. Avril will fit in the Seahawks system as their new Leo nicely. Over the last three seasons Cliff has amassed 29 sacks in 49 games, a rate of 0.59 sacks per game. With Chris Clemons injury, there has been a big question mark at the Leo position.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you a recap and his love ‘em and hate ‘em from the reports that Seattle has acquired Percy Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings.

NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his version of armchair GM. The 2013 NFL Combine took place over the weekend and Brandon got to play John Schneider.
