It is officially Draft Week, ladies and gentlemen. Better than Spring Break, better than Shark Week, shoot, better than Super Bowl week for all but two teams. Derek Stephens and Davis Hsu have teamed up once again to provide a series of extremely informative, ridiculously researched, and amazingly comprehensive look at the state of the Seahawks as we head into the 2012 Draft.
In part one, Derek and Davis first talk about the Seahawks' offseason moves - Jason Jones and Matt Flynn in particular, - what these guys mean for the Draft and for the depth chart. How will Jones be used? Will Matt win the starting job? In what ways is he better than Tarvaris Jackson? Where is he lacking? What is the potential for these two players?
They talk about depth charts, roster bubble players, and go on to hit the NFL Draft, naturally. It's a really, really great listen for any Seahawk fan, with an eye towards team philosophy, the salary cap and its restrictions, player strengths, front office tendencies, NFL Draft patterns and trends, offensive and defensive schemes - my main impression is that it's just a smart conversation.
