Within the next three years, the Seahawks are going to have to resign Sherman, Thomas, Wilson, Lynch, Baldwin, Tate, Bennett and several others.  They are going to have some serious cap issues before much longer.  They will definitely be the team to beat next year though.

Carroll is a great talent evaluator as well, along with identifying guys who fit their system, especially on the defensive side. Having ties in the college ranks sure helped him too as he was able to bring in Pac-12 guys like Baldwin and Kearse who weren't even drafted.

I've changed my mind about the direction we go in the draft this year.  I say we go with Best Player Available with every pick. The thing about Seattle is that they have physically freakish athletes who are fast at every position.  Free agency is where we need to go for our "needs" but when it comes to the draft I say pick crazy fast athletic big football players regardless of position.

That's wonderful for them, but not every team lucks out like that on late rounders, and UDFA's.

They are using the moneyball approach which is good early but like we all know. Contracts are gonna be a bear.

BPA is for the 80's. Its random and unwise.

They knew the type of guy they wanted and never reached for a player.

Steelers, Eagles, Pats and Ravens have done this for years.

You just replace the guy you are letting go with a younger and cheaper version of himself. Smart.

BPA not so much.

Great coaching.

 

Yep, you have to develop them once you draft them.
