Positions needed:




As expected, the Hawks did not get good reviews for drafting Frank Clark. Larry Stone of The Seattle Times said the Seahawks “uncharacteristically and inexplicably misstepped.”

News Tribune beat writer Gregg Bell set aside all objectivity as he ranted against the pick.

Rob Staton breaks down Clark’s skills, which were first-round worthy.

Pete Carroll and John Schneider are such drama queens.

This draft class is full of intriguing personal drama.

The Hawks drafted three offensive linemen, but where will they play?

Check out Schneider’s 33 trades as Seattle GM.

Seahawks.com lists Three Things to Know about Clark (obviously the team’s website goes nowhere near his legal history).

Here are Three Things to Know about Tyler Lockett, whose dad played in Kansas City when John Schneider was director of pro personnel there.

In his Day 3 review, Rob Staton wonders if the Hawks will sign veteran C Chris Myers and whether Mark Glowinski is going to be groomed as J.R. Sweezy’s replacement.

Bob Condotta rounded up a bunch of analysts’ grades for the Hawks’ draft.

Draft season is never finished until the next year’s mocks come out. Dane Brugler slots Oklahoma State DE Emmanuel Ogbah to the Hawks.
