Before the workouts were underway in Indianapolis, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports tweeted out that Frank Clark and the Seahawks may be closing in on a deal in advance of the deadline to use the franchise tag. The Kansas City Chiefs recently announced that they would be tagging Dee Ford and Seattle has been consistent in saying that Clark won't be going to free agency. With the latest news and the press conference from John Schneider where he pointed out that Seattle hasn't used the tag since 2010, it sounds as though the team may be close to a deal.
D.K. Metcalf stole the headlines away from Kyler Murray with his impressive performance at the combine running a 4.33 as a 6-foot-4 receiver. Rob points out that it's not the top time by a wideout as Parris Campbell from Ohio State may have improved his stock even more than Metcalf. The Seahawks are notorious for drafting speed at the position and we learned this class is loaded with speed. Considering some of the players who didn't run or weren't invited or allowed to work out at the combine, there could be a couple dozen players in that range for Seattle.
Noah Fant had an impressive day at the combine, but considering his skillset primarily as a pass catcher, Seattle is likely going to stay away from obtaining a pair of Fants. LSU tight end Foster Moreau could be a more likely player Seattle would consider as primarily a blocker and as a well-respected member of the Tigers team. Rob talks about Moreau wearing number 18 for the Tigers and the significance behind it.
Reports early on in the day were that several teams were of the mind that Arizona would be taking Murray with the first pick overall. Is it a smokescreen to try and get another team to move up to the first spot overall? As a Seahawks fan, which player would you rather see with the Cardinals Week 1, Rosen or Murray? That answer should tell you the direction that the Cardinals should choose to go.
