NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church tells us today about what is actually going on under the hood of the Seahawks draft machine. How the brains work on Pete Carroll, and John Schneider. We know they like speed over size. 2. They trust what they see. They aren’t sold on a quarterback for the 2012 season.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church reports today on the 2012 Post draft free agency draft tracker. Only four UDFAs made the team last year, so don’t expect to hear everyone’s name come September (Seattle now has a whopping 11 WRs on the roster). Remember Doug Baldwin folks? He was a UDFA in 2011.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us today the Seahawks have NOT filled another need with the draft pick of Greg Scruggs today in the 7th round.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens tells us today the Seahawks have filled another need with the draft of Kentucky strong safety Winston Guy. If Winston can learn to be a poor mans Kam Chancellor this is going to be a great pick for the Seahawks. He could turn into one of those steals of the draft.
