As is always the case immediately following the draft, teams are now scrambling to sign the top undrafted players. For the Seahawks, that will include one of the cooler stories of this draft weekend, 34-year-old long snapper Nate Boyer.

The Seahawks made their final pick of the 2015 draft, taking Oregon State safety Ryan Murphy with pick No. 248. 

So to recap, Seattle to DE Frank Clark in the second round, WR Tyler Lockett in the third, OT Terry Poole and G Mark Glowinski in the fourth, CB Tye Smith in the fifth, DE Obum Gwacham and G Kristjan Sokoli in the sixth and Murphy in the seventh.

Because the Seahawks sometimes like to do things a little differently, they picked Buffalo defensive tackle Kristjan Sokoli in the sixth round, then announced the pick as guard Kristjan Sokoli.

Yes, folks, it appears the Seahawks plan to "Sweezy" Sokoli, turning him from a lightly-regarded D-line prospect into a very athletic guard.

Obum Gwacham made the very unusual transition from receiver to defensive end prior to his senior year at Oregon State, a move coaches encouraged to improve their depth on the line, as well as his chances at a pro career. The move paid off for Gwacham Saturday when he was picked by Seattle in the sixth round of the 2015 draft.

The Seahawks looked to a small-school prospect, Townson’s Tye Smith, with their fifth round pick. Smith, a 6-foot-1, 195 pound cornerback, certainly fits the size requirements of a Seattle cornerback, but will be seen by some as a reach considering where he played his college ball.

The Seahawks addressed one of their more obvious needs with a pair of fourth-round picks, drafting two offensive linemen.

With pick No. 130, Seattle took San Diego State’s Terry Poole, who was a left tackle in college, but who most project as a guard in the NFL. Four picks later, Seattle picked West Virginia guard Mark Glowinski.

John Schneider opened with a written statement, something the Seahawks general manager has never done in five previous drafts with the Seattle, an indication that he was fully aware of the controversy surrounding his team’s decision to pick defensive end Frank Clark in the second round.

Defensive end Frank Clark, who was Seattle’s first pick in the 2015 draft, knows he’ll have to win over plenty of Seahawk fans thanks to a past that includes a recent domestic violence arrest—he later pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

After waiting longer than any team to make their first pick in the 2015 draft, the Seahawks didn’t wait long to pick again, trading up in the third round in order to draft Kansas State receiver/return specialist Tyler Lockett just six picks after taking DE Frank Clark late in the second round. Seattle picked Lockett with the 69th pick, which originally belonged to Washington.

Many Seahawks players are in Hawaii for offseason workouts organized by quarterback Russell Wilson, and in addition to enjoying some time in the sun and getting some work done on the field, it would appear they’re also doing some team bonding.

Russell Wilson mentioned baseball again, which of course means another round of debating whether or not the Seattle Seahawks quarterback and former Colorado Rockies farmhand would actually ever attempt to juggle two sports professionally.

The start of the Seattle Mariners’ most anticipated season in recent memory is only minutes away. Unlike most recent seasons where the only realistic hope is seeing some progress and development, 2015 comes with playoff-or-bust expectations for the Mariners, who were just a game away from the postseason last year.

The Seahawks made a pair of roster moves Wednesday, both expected, re-signing defensive tackle Jesse Williams and fullback Will Tukuafu.
