Seahawks 2013 Draft: DOOOOOOON'T CAAAAAARE

Obviously, I care about about who the Seahawks draft, and I'll be watching the first round tonight, the second round tomorrow night and maybe a little bit over the weekend....but for the first time in who knows how many years, I'm not getting my hopes up on who the Seahawks pick with their top pick(s).

In the past, I would engulf myself in several different NFL Draft resources in the weeks leading up to said draft, even (ugh) Walter Football. Not proud of myself, but it was important for me to get as much information as possible. By the time the draft drew nigh, I'd have a very strong opinion on who was being drafted where, who would be available when the Seahawks came to pick, and who the Seahawks should pick.

This year? I'm letting Pete and John worry about it. Even before we traded our first-round pick for Percy Harvin, I wasn't getting too bothered about who we might pick at that spot. And you know what? I miss the obsession. April is hardly an exciting period in the sports world, especially here in Seattle for all the known reasons, and combing over rumors and speculation and trying to determine what is real and what isn't was a good way to waste time in the early spring, before the sun is shining consistently (although the weather is great today).

I'm still interested in the draft this year, and I still consider it a lot of fun to see who goes where, but there's a distinct lack of urgency and excitement in my gut this year. Even if the Cards pick someone good at #7, even if the Rams get two strong additions with their two picks, and even if the 49ers trade up and grab a difference maker.....eh, whatever.

No biggie.
