Over the weekend, ScoutTheDraft.com's Derek Stephens put together a reactionary podcast for each of Seattle's selections, listing strengths and weaknesses of each player - their college production, physical measureables, and possible impact early on. He goes on to talk about scheme fit and the Seahawks' reasoning behind each pick, citing his scouting reports and game review. Derek hits a level of specificity and thoroughness on these picks that you don't really see in many places, and the following several-minute podcasts on each player are excellent. They're also exclusive to Field Gulls.

Round 1: No. 15 (15 ) - Bruce Irvin, DE, West Virginia
Round 2: No. 15 (47 ) - Bobby Wagner, ILB, Utah State
Round 3: No. 12 (75) - Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin
Round 4: No. 11 (106) - Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
Round 4: No. 19 (114) - Jaye Howard, DT, Florida
Round 5: No. 19 (154) - Korey Toomer, ILB, Idaho
Round 6: No. 2 (172) - Jeremy Lane, CB, Northwestern State
Round 6: No. 11 (181) - Winston Guy, DB, Kentucky
Round 7: No. 18 (225) - J.R. Sweezy, DE, N.C. State
Round 7: No. 25 (232) - Greg Scruggs, DE, Louisville

Derek also runs Scout The Draft - an NFL Draft analysis hub that you should head to immediately after finishing these podcasts. Or maybe while you're listening.
