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. Also, he has a wishful thinking selection, but it is highly unlikely that this player will drop far enough in the draft for the Hawks to actually select him.
NWSB insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us his take on contract details of the Percy Harvin trade and signing this week. The Seahawks still have about $14.6 million left in cap room after releasing Leon Washington. More then enough to add some more cogs says Brett. The obvious point is this. Harvin’s new six year $67 million contract gives him the extra money in the bank for a nice NEW ride.
Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with the five players who he thinks need to improve the most in 2013 if the Seahawks are going to make a serious push for the Super Bowl. The biggest name that comes to mind for Clinton is Seahawks rookie DT Bruce Irvin. He showed signs of both brilliance, and need of improvement in his rookie season. He ended up with 8 sacks on the year, but his play on first and second down, when called upon, is where the most work is needed. The WR corps of Sidney Rice and Golden Tate needs to improve too, with one of them finally coming out as the top WR threat for Russell Wilson.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens analyzes the five reasons he thinks the Seahawks got bounced early from the playoffs. Pete had some questionable calls during the game, but the biggest offender was not kicking the field goal on 4th and 1 at the 11. That would have at least put the Hawks on the board before halftime. Another one was Marshawn Lynch fumbling the ball. Nothing kills momentum more than a fumble. And that was Lynch’s second in two weeks.
