Hawks Playbook Podcast – Draft Prospects: Skill Positions Show
Open: Hello Hawks Playbook Podcast listeners! Welcome to another addition of the Hawks Playbook Podcast. Today’s Episode starts our 4-part series previewing Draft prospects that fit into what the Seattle Seahawks will be looking for at each position. Today, we begin with the play-makers, the skill positions. This group features the Quarterbacks, Running Backs, Tight Ends and Wide Receivers. Keith and I independently studied and reviewed dozens of prospects at each position including game film analysis, and narrowed our lists down to just a handful of players at each position. We go over potential players and where in the draft the Seahawks would likely find them. We focus on both premier talent, and the kind of players that would be hidden gems in later rounds. This is a super fun group of players to study, particularly at Wide Receiver and Running Back. We both expect the Hawks to take at least one each with the current 9 overall draft picks that Seattle holds.
This is a great conversations that weaves Seattle draft strategy in with player needs and value pockets in the draft. Of course, we only present a handful of the overall options available in the draft. We left dozens and dozens of potential Seahawky players on the table. Maybe Keith and I can identify a few players that the Seahawks will call out in rounds 1-7 in this years draft, but that’s not really the point. The point is that this is a really fun exercise for us to get into the weeds a bit on researching these players, and hope you enjoy the discussion and the wishful thinking that the conversation can lead to. We encourage you to do your own research on some of the names we offer up here in the show, and determine for yourself if they would be good players for the Seahawks!
