Leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft from April 25-27, Seahawks fans can work through a few clues (until we get the official clues) about potential players Pete Carroll and John Schneider may have an interest. With Alistair Corp’s Seahawks Draft Board providing a look at the measurements that Seattle has typically looked for among players, our series of draft podcasts, and the list of players below the team has reportedly met with, the hope is that we can come out of a draft recognizing a few of the names.

Players from the 2018 pre-draft visit tracker who ended up on the team via the draft or as an undrafted free agent included linebacker Shaquem Griffin, tight end Will Dissly, defensive tackle Poona Ford, cornerback Simeon Thomas, fullback Khalid Hill, and linebacker Jacob Pugh. Hill and Pugh are the only two who aren’t currently on the roster.

It’s also possible that many of these meetings and pre-draft visits go unreported. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times mentioned recently that that Rasheem Green, Jacob Martin and Alex McGough all made official visits to the VMAC prior to the draft last year.

Each team is allowed to host as many as 30 prospects leading up to the draft, where they are invited to the team’s facility as part of an official visit. These are generally referred to as “Top 30” visits. But the team also has the opportunity to meet with local prospects, by visiting a prospect’s pro day, at the Senior Bowl, East-West Shrine Game, and at the NFL Scouting Combine. Here is the list of the players tracked to this point:

Anything labeled “pre-draft meeting” is for vague reference about a team who “met with” a particular player or a report about a player meeting with every team or “basically” every team. Most of these reports came around the time of the NFL Scouting Combine, which allows many teams to meet informally with players as well as holding formal interviews.
