246: The Seahawks break even on the 2019 Schedule
In what has become an annual tradition, Dave Bloomquist (aka Hong Kong Hawk) joins the show to break down the Seahawks 2019 schedule in a unique way. In past seasons, Dave has pointed out how the Seahawks often get dealt a tough hand by giving Seattle's opponents more rest, particularly in big games leading up to home games in Seattle. This year, the Seahawks actually break even overall.  Even though the story is that it's better than usual, there are some rough parts of the schedule. But with five prime time games, the fact that the Seahawks start the season off at home, and they get a bye in Week 11, even Dave can't find a lot to be mad about this season.  In addition to breaking down the Seahawks schedule, Dave tells us why the Green Bay Packers got, by far, the worst schedule in the league and which one of the NFC West division rivals was gifted one of the top 3 overall schedules.

245: The NFL's Annual League Meeting, rule changes, free agency and how to overhaul a middling franchise
Michael-Shawn Dugar of the Athletic and the Seahawks Man 2 Man Podcast joins the show this week to talk about the NFL's Annual League Meeting down in Arizona and his encounter with coach Pete Carroll who is challenging the popular opinion of the most important meal of the day. Brandan and Mike talk about the departure of Earl Thomas and how the best move the Seahawks made was to stay away from paying high-priced free agents.  A couple big takeaways from the meetings in Arizona is just how reactionary the league continues to be when it comes to changing the rules. Pass interference is now reviewable and we may see a change down the road to how playoff games are handled in overtime after Tom Brady quickly scored on the Chiefs to send New England to another Super Bowl. Sam Marcoux, co-host of the Perfectville Podcast, jumps on later in the show to talk about his feelings on the change to make pass interference calls reviewable. He clearly still holds a grudge against Doug Baldwin after the Seahawks beat Miami back in 2016. What will be some of the consequences of the rule change? The guys talk about expectations of increased game time, how coaches will save their challenges specifically for pass interference calls, and maybe some increases in seeing offensive pass interference calls. The hope of course is that the implementation results in making sure the calls on the field are correct. While we don't often talk about the Dolphins on the show, Miami can show Seahawks fans just how difficult it can be to replace a franchise quarterback. Ryan Tannehill is now out and at least Dolphins fans are starting to see a plan in place for having a tough year or two with the potential that they can be this year's Cleveland Browns sometime in the near future.

243: Day 4 of the NFL Combine (defensive backs) with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Before discussing some better than expected performances, particularly at safety, a few news items jumped out in the news today as the Seahawks reportedly met with Kyler Murray at the combine. Rob Staton from seahawksdraftblog.com is back on the show to remind us why that was a smart move even with Russell Wilson locked in at quarterback. Wilson is going into his final year and Joel Corry said on KJR Monday that Russell's contract will need to start around $35 million per year. The Seahawks also announced that they've placed the franchise tag on Frank Clark ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Jachai Polite reportedly did not interview well, but Rob thinks the reports could be based on Polite reaction following his talks with teams. However, scouts are calling him on bailing on the workouts and that could be what causes his stock to tumble a bit. There were a number of safeties that improved their stock in a class that was not expected to be as athletic as they proved to be on the final day of the NFL Scouting Combine. There were three safeties that ran in the 4.3s or better. The fastest player of the weekend was a safety who ran 4.29. Juan Thornhill had an impressive 44-inch vertical to go along with his 4.4 speed. Rob says there's one safety to look at as a possible safety to cornerback convert, similar to Tre Flowers last year for Seattle and that's USC safety Marvell Tell. Taylor Rapp of Washington had an impressive day, topping the field in the short shuttle, a drill that measures short-area quickness. Among the cornerbacks, there were five who tested very well and also fit the Seahawks profile: Mike Jackson, Miami; Isaiah Johnson, Houston; Lonnie Johnson, Kentucky; Justin Layne, Michigan State, and Ken Webster of Mississippi St. Of all those players, Rob says Lonnie Johnson would be the player most likely still around in the range that Seattle may be interested in taking a corner. The others could be going in the first two rounds of the draft. Rob offers some final thoughts on the class as a whole and the guys discuss where Seattle may be most likely to go while trying to project 2-3 years out. One of our listeners on YouTube says Khalil Hodge is a Seahawks linebacker and Rob says there is a lot to like about him and could be a potential late-round prospect for Seattle. Look for Brandan and Adam to be back soon on the Field Gulls Podcast.

242: NFL Combine Day 3 (DL, Edge, LB) with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Some of the biggest names of the 2019 NFL Draft are on the defensive line and players like Rashan Gary, who called himself the best player in the draft, along with Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams didn't disappoint on Day 3 of the NFL Scouting Combine. Their numbers simply proved they are indeed among the top names in this year's draft, all long gone before the Seahawks pick. Montez Sweat may have put his name up there in the elite with a blazing 4.41 performance at 260 pounds. Rob Staton of seahawksdraftblog.com joins the show to offer some reasons why he still may not go in the top 15 even with his impressive numbers. Trysten Hill, a teammate of the Griffin twins at the University of Central Florida, showed his athleticism in the drills posting a 4.38 short shuttle, 35 inch vertical, 9-foot-7 broad jump and a 1.74 10-yard split as a 308 pound defensive lineman. Renell Wren, of Arizona State, was a player the Seahawks could be likely to consider along with Jerry Tillery of Notre Dame who had a nice performance at the combine. Rob put the defensive linemen into his Trench Explosion Formula and came up with a player who joins the Miles Garrett club as the only other player above a 4.0. Ben Banogu will now be a player that Rob goes and looks a little more at his tape from TCU. Brian Burns of Florida State was another edge rusher that could be a possibility for the Seahawks toward the end of the first round who was among the top edge rushers in the 10-yard split. Rob talks about Justin Hollins of Oregon as a potential Day 3 option. At linebacker, the Seahawks may be scrambling in free agency or working harder at re-signing K.J. Wright considering the lack of options in the draft class. Devin White of LSU will almost certainly be off the board early while the other potential first round pick, Devin Bush of Michigan could still be there. Rob previews the corners to watch on Monday, the final day of the combine, and adds three running backs from the first day of the combine who fit the Seahawks profile.
241: Day 2 of the NFL Combine with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
Before the workouts were underway in Indianapolis, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports tweeted out that Frank Clark and the Seahawks may be closing in on a deal in advance of the deadline to use the franchise tag. The Kansas City Chiefs recently announced that they would be tagging Dee Ford and Seattle has been consistent in saying that Clark won't be going to free agency. With the latest news and the press conference from John Schneider where he pointed out that Seattle hasn't used the tag since 2010, it sounds as though the team may be close to a deal. D.K. Metcalf stole the headlines away from Kyler Murray with his impressive performance at the combine running a 4.33 as a 6-foot-4 receiver. Rob points out that it's not the top time by a wideout as Parris Campbell from Ohio State may have improved his stock even more than Metcalf. The Seahawks are notorious for drafting speed at the position and we learned this class is loaded with speed. Considering some of the players who didn't run or weren't invited or allowed to work out at the combine, there could be a couple dozen players in that range for Seattle. Noah Fant had an impressive day at the combine, but considering his skillset primarily as a pass catcher, Seattle is likely going to stay away from obtaining a pair of Fants. LSU tight end Foster Moreau could be a more likely player Seattle would consider as primarily a blocker and as a well-respected member of the Tigers team. Rob talks about Moreau wearing number 18 for the Tigers and the significance behind it. Reports early on in the day were that several teams were of the mind that Arizona would be taking Murray with the first pick overall. Is it a smokescreen to try and get another team to move up to the first spot overall? As a Seahawks fan, which player would you rather see with the Cardinals Week 1, Rosen or Murray? That answer should tell you the direction that the Cardinals should choose to go.

240: NFL Combine Day 1 with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
The 2019 NFL Combine kicked off this week and Rob Staton from Seahawks Draft Blog is back on the show to talk about the first day of action. Earlier in the week, some big news for the team was announced when word came out that the Seahawks would not be up for sale in the near future. Jody Allen, sister of Paul Allen, is the chair of the Paul Allen Trust and that it's in place as the ownership structure. John Schneider and Pete Carroll had their meetings with the press. We didn't get much in terms of draft news, but we did hear that Frank Clark will not be a free agent and that Earl Thomas certainly will. The first position group to get going at the combine was the offensive line. Rob talks about how Andre Dillard, tackle from Washington State, was the stand-out player who likely secured a top 15 spot in the draft based on his performance. He continues to watch for the player who fit into his trench explosion formula (TEF) to look at some of the more athletic players among the lineman and came up with 8-9 potential draft picks who shined in the testing. Justice Hill was the standout running back, topping the charts with a 4.4, as well as coming in first for the vertical and broad jump. Hill is undersized for what the Seahawks have looked for historically, but there were initially four names who the Seahawks would likely look at if they're available toward the end of the draft or as an undrafted free agent. Rob has updated his blog with three additional names, including Miles Sanders of Penn State.  The guys close the show with some names to watch for tomorrow and a couple of players the Seahawks have reportedly met with at the combine, including Washington quarterback Jake Browning.

239: NFL Combine preview with Rob Staton, Seahawks Draft Blog
The 2019 NFL Combine is being held in Indianapolis this week, February 26 – March 4, 2019, with televised drills beginning on Friday. Rob Staton, of Seahawks Draft Blog, joins the show to talk about how the range of options for Seattle could be very diverse this year. Considering Russell Wilson's contract situation and Seattle's need to fill the backup role, he doesn't believe  drafting a quarterback is off the table (12:18). Brandan and Rob talk about how well New England has done at drafting backups and turning many of those players into assets for players or more draft picks. Depending on what happens with D.J. Fluker and J.R. Sweezy, Seattle could be in desperate need for additional offensive lineman. Rob talks about his formula for measuring an offensive lineman's explosiveness and how it used to be a marker for lineman the Seahawks would consider drafting (20:03). The Seahawks appear to be set at running back, but it's also interesting to point out that Seattle definitely has a type when it comes to who they want to select in the draft (32:17). Seattle has three tight ends in Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett and Will Dissly, but could some uncertainty lead them to draft another tight end? Rob talks about one tight end who would provide outstanding value if he slides down the board in the first round (39:20). Wide receiver is another spot that Seattle could be looking to add to from the draft. It's a spot they have usually selected at least a player per year. It's also a position with one key stat to look for at the combine -- speed (44:19). Technique is also a critical component to success for receivers in the NFL, Rob talks about what he watches for in receiver drills to judge how well a player catches passes (51:56). The Seahawks find themselves in need of a kicker again this offseason. Are there any of them worth considering in the draft this year (54:40). The talent on the defensive line is strong this season. Rob talks about how watching defensive line drills are among his favorite to watch and who we should be watching (58:47). When the Seahawks have looked for edge rushers in the past, they have gone after players with a 10-yard split around 1.5 seconds. Linebacker could be another key position to watch depending on what happens in free agency, and Rob offers thoughts on players on the strong and weak-side spots (1:10:21). Getting into the defensive backs, it seems like everyone throughout the NFL knows what a Seahawks-style corner looks like. But could their thinking shift toward filling behind Justin Coleman, as a player who breaks the mold for the body type they've looked at in the past (1:26:19).  Seattle has depth at safety, but Rob talks about the notion if they truly need a star to come in behind Earl Thomas at that spot (1:31:51). Having someone with speed like Thomas has been very helpful, but the combination of speed and ability have been very elusive throughout the NFL. Follow Rob Staton's work at seahawksdraftblog.com and on Twitter @robstaton. Expect to hear more audio with Rob as we get into the combine this weekend!
