Seattle Sidelines
April 29  |  Nick Patterson
It's day 2 of the NFL draft. Rounds 2 and 3 take place Friday, beginning at 4 p.m. Teams have seven minutes to make selections.

The Seahawks will be significant players in today's action as they own four picks: one in the second round (56th overall) and three in the third round (90, 94, 97). That's good news for Seattle, considering Seahawks general manager John Schneider has said this is the strongest draft since he took over in 2010, and Seattle coach Pete Carroll...

First, let's look at the aftermath of the Seahawks selecting Texas A&M tackle Germain Ifedi with the last pick of the first round of the NFL draft. The Seahawks' website did a survey of how various media outlets graded Seattle's pick. It's ridiculous to be handing out grades at this point as it is -- just look at

The Seahawks have once again traded down in the first round of the NFL draft. But at least for now they'll still pick in the first round.

Seattle traded the 26th-overall selection to the Denver Broncos during Thursday's first round, in exchange for the 31st-overall pick and a third rounder (94th overall). Not a bad return for moving down five spots in the first round. The Seahawks now own three third rounders and five picks in the top 100.

The trade makes it...

Seahawks' Schneider, Carroll coy heading into NFL draft The NFL draft takes place Thursday through Saturday, and Seahawks general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll held their pre-draft press conference Tuesday afternoon. Unsurprisingly, the duo wasn't giving up much information. There were a lot of sly grins in response to questions, and at one point Carroll quipped, "We're not going to tell you a thing."

But here's a general overview of what Schneider and Carroll had to say:

TALKING POINTS

It was the goal all Seattle had been waiting for. Jordan Morris finally scored his first goal in a Sounders uniform Saturday night, and it ended up being the game winner.

Morris, the local product and much-hyped offseason addition, went his first seven games (five in MLS, two in the CONCACAF Champions League) without finding the net. But in the 71st minute he finally showed Sounders fans what he could do. Andreas Ivanschitz sent...

The Seahawks announced their 2016 regular season schedule on Thursday evening. Later that night they tweeted out a short video on the making of the schedule, and if you've ever seen a how-to cooking video posted on Facebook you'll recognize the style. Whoever in the marketing department came up with this idea deserves a bonus.

The sounds of Psy's Gangnam Style appropriately blared from the speakers in the Mariners' clubhouse.

Korean slugger Dae-Ho Lee's 10th-inning pinch-hit two-run walk-off homer (did I get enough hyphens in there?) finally gave the Mariners their first win at Safeco Field this season. After starting out the home schedule with five straight losses for the first time in franchise history, Seattle's home misery is finally over. Robinson...

TALKING POINTS

It was a beautiful day for the Mariners' home opener. However, it was spoiled when Oakland's Chris Coghlan slugged a solo home run in the top of the ninth inning, snapping a 2-2 tie.

The Mariners' offense, which was so proficient during their season-opening series at Texas, was shut down Friday as five Oakland pitchers limited Seattle to four hits. This was a classic example of the difference between Globe Life Park in Arlington...
