'Seattle is drafting objectively good players'

The Seahawks' 2022 draft class is complete and media members generally seem to like what Seattle did.

Here's what the pundits had to say about their picks

More on WR Dareke Young

And with their final scheduled pick in the NFL draft Saturday the Seahawks took another receiver — Dareke Young of Lenoir-Rhyne.

Young, listed at 6-3, 220, had a recent private visit with the Seahawks in Renton.

Young played just seven games the past two seasons but finished his career with 73 receptions for 1,176 yards and 16 touchdowns.

More on WR Bo Melton

With their fourth pick of the final day of the NFL draft, the Seahawks turned back to offense, taking receiver Bo Melton of Rutgers at 229 overall in the seventh round.

Melton, listed at 5-11, 189, also has some experience returning kicks and punts and could be a factor there as well.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Seahawks QB situation

NFL Networks' Ian Rapoport says he thinks "it will be a competition between Geno Smith and Drew Lock with Geno having a little bit of a leg up."

On Baker Mayfield interest, he said the interest from Seattle is "luke-warm at best".

Seahawks 'happy' with current QBs on roster

RENTON — The third day of the NFL draft reiterated a statement the Seahawks made on the first two — they are more than OK with their current quarterback room.

Seattle had a chance again Saturday to draft a quarterback who in some mocks had been regarded as a possible first-rounder — North Carolina’s Sam Howell.

But Seattle passed on Howell at 109, when the Seahawks instead took cornerback Coby Bryant. And Seattle even essentially passed on him at 145, trading the pick when Howell was still on the board. Howell was taken at 144 but after the Seahawks moved down.

So for now that leaves the Seahawks with Geno Smith, Drew Lock and Jacob Eason as the three quarterbacks on their roster.

‘There’s not a corner in NFL history with a better combination’

The Seahawks hope they’ve struck gold again with Woolen.

He is massive: 6-4 … 205 pounds … 33-5/8-inch arms … with a 4.26-second 40-yard dash … and a 42-inch vertical jump. What’s not to like?

If Pete Carroll could sculpt a cornerback from scratch, that player would look a lot like Tariq Woolen.

Woolen’s 40 time was the second-best overall at the NFL combine, and his vertical mark tied for the best overall.

Here’s what you need to know about Seattle's new CB.

UW center Luke Wattenberg taken by Broncos in 5th round

JSerra Catholic High School produced a pair of UW offensive line signees in the 2016 class — Nick Harris and Luke Wattenberg.

Harris, of course, transcended a modest frame and recruiting ranking to become a four-year starter, a two-time All-Pac-12 first-team performer and a fifth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2020. He has since appeared in 23 NFL games, making two starts.

Wattenberg was next in line.

On Saturday, the 6-foot-4, 299-pound center was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 171st pick in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL draft.

More on Seahawks' selection of DE Tyreke Smith

On the final day of the NFL draft the Seahawks continued to load up on defense.

After taking cornerbacks with their first two picks of the day Seattle then went back to the front of the defense, taking edge rusher Tyreke Smith of Ohio State at pick No. 158.

Here's more on the defensive end.

More on Seahawks' pick of Tariq Woolen

With their second pick of the last day of the NFL draft the Seahawks took their second cornerback of the day — Tariq Woolen of Texas-San Antonio at 153 in the fifth round.

Seattle earlier selected cornerback Coby Bryant of Cincinnati.

Here's more on the CB.

What passing on QBs so far means for Seahawks

The big story for the Seahawks Friday wasn’t who they picked. Instead, it was more about who they didn’t pick. Or more specifically — what they didn’t pick.

The Seahawks didn't add a quarterback Friday -- which could mean the Seahawks are setting themselves up to make their big quarterback score after this season. They’ll have the salary-cap room to go after anybody who is available, or look to a QB-rich draft in 2023.

“Sure, things have to time up right. They just didn’t time up,” GM John Schnieder said of the decision to not take a QB. “I’ve said this before, that the head coach and the quarterback are the most important people in the building. It just has to be right.”

Seahawks added key pieces with Day 2 picks

The Seahawks did not take a quarterback on the second day of the NFL draft.

But they did do a lot to continue to help whoever their quarterback will be in 2022 as they begin life without Russell Wilson, taking running back Kenneth Walker III of Michigan State (second round, No. 41 overall) and offensive tackle Abraham Lucas (third round, No. 72), an Everett native who played at Archbishop Murphy High School and Washington State.

Seattle also drafted edge rusher Boye Mafe of Minnesota (second round, No. 40) as the Seahawks made three choices overall in the second and third rounds.

“We had some specific areas that we wanted to address and we addressed three of them today,” said Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

More on a busy rounds 2 and 3 for the Seahawks.
