The Seahawks are poised for a big day — one that should satisfy a couple of needs and possibly bring a couple of so-called luxury picks.
The Hawks are one of four teams with four picks today — set up to dominate the tail end of the day, with three picks in the final nine.
Pete Carroll called it “the meat part of this draft,” and John Schneider said, “It’s going to be a blast.”

For all of the talk about the Seahawks needing to target an offensive lineman with the 26th overall pick, it is looking more and more like they could be angling to draft a defensive lineman.
Florida’s Jonathan Bullard is the hot name attached to the Seahawks these days. They reportedly were set to bring him in for a visit — a move that could well foreshadow his arrival as a Seahawk in late April.
