Cheap Authentic NFL Seahawks Womens Nazair Jones Jerseys 2017

The Seahawks were as active in the 2017 NFL draft as any team. They tied the Vikings and Bengals for the most picks with 11, including seven in the first 111 selections. And though none is assured of walking straight into starting jobs, several could start, and several others figure to be at least rotational players. With training camp set to begin Sunday, here’s a look at each draft pick: DL Malik McDowell: Seattle’s first pick at No. 35 overall in the second round, McDowell is expected to be used at defensive tackle and end in a role similar to that of Michael Bennett. Given the veterans ahead of him, McDowell isn’t likely to earn an official starting designation. But the team is counting on him to be a significant part of the rotation with a chance to play 40-60 percent of the snaps.

OL Ethan Pocic: Seattle’s second pick in the second round will be tried at right guard and tackle, and his best shot could come at tackle where he will compete with last year’s first-round pick, Germain Ifedi. Pocic’s ability to also play center means that at the worst he figures to be one of the active linemen on game day, able to back up just about everywhere. CB Shaquill Griffin: Griffin might have the best shot of any rookie to earn a starting role, as he will compete for the right-cornerback spot opposite Richard Sherman. Jeremy Lane is the leader for that job and his experience might make him hard to dislodge. Neiko Thorpe also is a factor in that competition. Lane, though, still could be the team’s nickelback, meaning Griffin and Thorpe could be competing to be the right cornerback when the team is in nickel, an alignment it could use roughly two-thirds of the time this season. SS Delano Hill: A third-rounder out of Michigan, he projects for this season as a backup to Kam Chancellor and a special-teams contributor, and he could get on the field in some sub packages. DL Nazair Jones: The third of the team’s four third-round picks, Jones will compete for time at tackle behind Jarran Reed and Ahtyba Rubin, specifically filling in at the three-technique spot. WR Amara Darboh: The fourth third-round pick, Darboh will compete for a spot in the receiving rotation, likely more for the outside roles. A spot on the 53-man roster seems to be a given. S Tedric Thompson: The last of the team’s seven picks in the top 111, Thompson figures to start out at free safety where he would back up Earl Thomas (veteran free agent Bradley McDougald can back up at both safety spots). But it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Seahawks put Thompson at corner to judge his ability to play there. He could emerge as a player who is similar to DeShawn Shead in his early years, able to back up at several spots. CB Mike Tyson: Primarily a safety in college, Tyson is being tried as a cornerback by the Seahawks, primarily as a nickel. There’s enough uncertainty at cornerback that it’s not out of the realm for Tyson to earn a roster spot and see time this season. OL Justin Senior: A sixth-round pick, Senior is competing at left tackle behind George Fant, Luke Joeckel and Rees Odhiambo. But when he was drafted the Seahawks essentially said they view Senior as a project — in part due to a need to lose some weight — and he seems ticketed for the practice squad. But given the nature of Seattle’s offensive line, you never know. WR David Moore: Moore will compete for a spot on the back end of the 53-man roster with Tanner McEvoy, Kasen Williams and Kenny Lawler. The big question could be if those four are competing for one spot or two — or who knows, three? — depending on how they play and how the roster shakes out elsewhere. RB Chris Carson: The Seahawks seem fairly loaded at tailback with Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise locks to make it and second-year player Alex Collins and former 49er Mike Davis also competing for a roster spot. But Carson is a favorite of coach Pete Carroll, who said “I really love this guy’’ after the Seahawks picked him. Carson was sidelined for most of the offseason program, so it’s hard to tell if he can claim a roster spot. But given Carroll’s endorsement he figures to get a long look.

Cheap Authentic Football Seahawks Youth Delano Hill Jerseys 2017

NFL training camp gets going in three weeks, and that means the NFL regular season is only two months away. I imagine most of us will be focusing on our San Francisco 49ers during training camp, but it will help to know a little bit about the rest of the league. SB Nation’s 32 NFL sites are putting together basic rundowns of what their team has been up to this offseason.

Each explainer includes free agent additions and departures, trades, draft picks expected to contribute as rookies, biggest offseason addition, biggest storyline, underrated storyline, and notable injuries. The idea is to give you a quick but thorough background on each team. We’ll use these to look at 49ers opponents, but if we have time, I want to try and use all 32 to give us a nice look around the league.

Today, we move on to the Seattle Seahawks, courtesy of our friends at Field Gulls. The 49ers travel to face their division rival in Week 2, and host them in Week 12.

The 49ers have lost seven straight to the Seahawks, and have not won in Seattle since 2011. It was an intense rivalry at times, but it has become decidedly one-sided. The 49ers hung close in their home game last year, but came up short.

The Seahawks remain the standard-bearer in the NFC West. They are heavy favorites to win the NFC West, but the bigger question is how much longer their window is open to win another Super Bowl. Most important right now is that they have put some work into beginning the overhaul of their secondary. They drafted a cornerback and two safeties, and it will be interesting to see how soon they begin the transition away from some of their notable names.

On offense, they signed Austin Davis over Colin Kaepernick to compete for a backup role to Russell Wilson. It was a bit of an up-and-down season for Wilson last year as he was banged up at different points. If he gets hurt, they’re in trouble.

Notable free agent additions: RB Eddie Lacy, OT/OG Luke Joeckel, OG Oday Aboushi, LB Michael Wilhoite, LB Arthur Brown, S/CB Bradley McDougald, QB Austin Davis, LB Terence Garvin, DE Dion Jordan, K Blair Walsh

Notable free agent departures: OT Bradley Sowell, K Steven Hauschka, OT Garry Gilliam, TE Brandon Williams, RB Troymaine Pope, FB Will Tukuafu, DT Tony McDaniel, LB Brock Coyle, DE Damontre Moore

Trades: RB Marshawn Lynch to Raiders

Draft picks expected to contribute as rookies:

DT/5-Tech Malik McDowell – The Seahawks traded down twice and eventually selected McDowell out of Michigan State to be their answer to a lack of an inside pass rush. As a rookie, I expect him to be a regular rotation player on the inside with run-stopper Jarran Reed, their second round pick in 2016. Fans and experts will keep a close eye on McDowell’s effort and commitment early on.

C/G/T Ethan Pocic – Seattle needed to address their league-worst offensive line at some point, and they did so with Pocic at pick 58. He was an All-American center at LSU but is competing at tackle and guard for the Seahawks. If he doesn’t win a starting job it would be mildly surprising, but at worst he’ll be the next man up as a super-sub.

CB Shaquill Griffin – The Seahawks needed someone to play either outside or nickel cornerback following the ACL tear to DeShawn Shead last season and the struggles of Jeremy Lane. Griffin has drawn immediate praise from defensive coordinator Kris Richard as one of the smartest players they’ve had at the position (third round is the earliest Pete Carroll has drafted a corner in his eight seasons with the team) and he’ll probably be the first man up for the slot when Seattle is in nickel. That pretty much makes him a starter as Lane played 71% of snaps last season while playing in the slot. Griffin could also potentially start on the outside opposite of Sherman.

S Delano Hill and S Tedric Thompson – The Seahawks clearly needed depth at safety after they struggled mightily following the broken leg to Earl Thomas last season and the constant bang-ups to Kam Chancellor. Depth is markedly improved but Hill and Thompson may play sparingly as rookies.

DT Naz Jones – Another third round pick (Seattle had four), Jones probably sits and learns for a bit, but Carroll will give him the opportunity to compete for a spot in the rotation.

WR Amara Darboh – The Seahawks drafted Darboh with their last pick in the third round, which is high enough to consider Darboh a player to watch this season. He’s been compared to Jermaine Kearse, a player that a lot of fans want to see replaced immediately as a starter. Darboh, and fellow rookies David Moore (seventh round) and Cyril Grayson (signed before the draft, a track star who never played football at LSU) are all drawing praise in offseason workouts.

Biggest offseason addition:

There are a number of players to seriously consider here, including Joeckel, Lacy, McDowell, and Pocic, but I’ll go with Shaq Griffin. The Seahawks have had the best secondary in the NFL for most of the last five years, but that started to crumble last season. Griffin could become a staple of the next iteration of the Legion of Boom and they may need him immediately. He has the ball skills and athleticism to excel in Carroll’s system, and Carroll is arguably the best defensive backs coach in NFL history. I’ll go with Griffin, followed by Lacy. Seattle needs to get their run game back on track too.

Biggest storyline heading into training camp:

The offensive line’s ability to protect Russell Wilson this year. The o-line was the biggest story for all the wrong reasons in 2016, but the additions of Joeckel, Aboushi, and Pocic, plus the hopeful maturation of Germain Ifedi and George Fant, could push it to at least getting out of the cellar. Wilson doesn’t need much to work with to stay on his feet, as he’s one of the most athletic QBs in the league, but he needs more than they gave him last year when he suffered three notable injuries. As Wilson goes, so do the Seahawks. Plus it wouldn’t hurt to open up more lanes for Lacy, Thomas Rawls, and secret superstar C.J. Prosise.

Under-the-radar storyline heading into training camp:

I would keep an eye on the role that newly-signed safety Bradley McDougald plays. The coaches seem very excited about him and the role he’ll play in 2017, so I think there’s reason for optimism that he could become a key player and a fan favorite almost immediately. McDougald flew under the radar during his three-and-change seasons with the Buccaneers and signed a one-year deal in Seattle, but he could be just the type of guy who was bottled up and needs the right system to truly fly. If he does, there’s a good chance the Seahawks won’t be able to keep him and he’ll be one-and-done.

Notable injuries heading into training camp:

Seattle fans have kept close tabs on the broken legs of Earl Thomas and Tyler Lockett. Both seem on track for Week 1. DeShawn Shead (ACL) will probably start the season on PUP but could be a huge boost for the second half of the season. C.J. Prosise, Thomas Rawls, and Eddie Lacy are slated to be the running backs; none are dealing with specific injuries right now that should keep them out for Week 1, but all have extensive injury histories and that’s a concern that fans hope doesn’t pop up this season with much regularity.

Cheap Authentic NFL Seahawks Malik McDowell Jerseys

The Seattle Seahawks were active on day two of the draft, making six selections between 35 and 106. All six are almost certain to make the final roster, though they’ll be competing for various levels of important roles in 2017. At least two of them — second rounder Ethan Pocic and third rounder Shaq Griffin — may in fact be regular starters right away. Others could be basically right on that next cusp between starter and regular role player.

Here’s some of what the second and third round rookies have been up to in the two months or so since the draft, including tweets, film breakdowns, news articles, and more.

Ethan Pocic, 58th overall, C/G, LSU
Pocic was an All-American center at LSU, but he’s been competing at tackle for Seattle. If he wins that job on the right side, it could keep Germain Ifedi at right guard, which may or may not be a good thing. Pete Carroll, to no one’s surprise, had good things to say about Pocic so far:

“He’s already studied his tail off to get here, you can tell,’’ he said. “He’s a bright football player, really tuned in, just all of the right signals in the first day and a half he’s been here as far as being ready to apply himself. He had a great experience at LSU. He’s played a ton of football, and it shows.”
Carroll added that they know what Pocic can do at center so there’s no reason to keep working him there. (Plus, Justin Britt exists and the Seahawks need help on the offensive line right now.)

The News Tribune’s Gregg Bell recently wrote that Griffin is very much in the mix for a starting job and defensive coordinator Kris Richard is excited about Griffin’s future:

“He’s got probably one of the best corner minds that we’ve had for a young guy around here,” Richard, the team’s previous defensive backs coach, said. “That’s just in regards to leverage, positioning, the understanding of our coverages and where we need him to be.”

“We’re going to be really excited to see him strap it up and get out there and actually be able to compete for the football while it’s in the air. That’s going to be the next phase,” Richard said. “But his technique has been improving day after day, and he has real strength. He has strength in his hands, you can tell he’s a powerful guy, and obviously his speed is there.”
Carroll chimed in too:

“He’s really diligent. He’s real fast. Technique-wise, it’s not hard for him to make it look right. Camp will be huge for him. None of the DBs were able to compete at the ball throughout this whole offseason, so we don’t see any of that. We have no evaluation of those guys. They can’t make a play on the ball unless it’s thrown right to them. So they have a lot to show still when they come back. The one-on-one work when they get back. The seven on seven against our best guys and all of that will show us a lot more. So it’s hard to make a full evaluation.”

Delano Hill, 95th overall, S, Michigan
Hill’s safety teammate Jabrill Peppers was a Heisman candidate and a first round pick, but Erik Turner of cover1.net had plenty of praise for the former.

But if you want a true safety, then you don’t have to look far. When you turn on the Michigan film, you will see his teammate, safety Delano Hill, consistently making plays. He may not have the ceiling or elite athleticism that Peppers does, but he is a safer pick. He is an NFL safety, a guy whose film is very good, a leader on and off the field. You know what you are getting with him, and that is consistency.
Hill may specialize against tight ends.

This play also exemplifies what Hill was asked to do at Michigan. Much like this play, in the NFL Hill will be matched up with tight ends frequently. Brown was so confident in Hill’s abilities that he often matched Hill up versus opposing tight ends and receivers in the box and in the slot. Hill is really good at pressing, disrupting and getting into the hip pocket of offensive players.
Carroll likes players who know how to tackle, and that is a strength of Hill’s.

Hill worked from a lot of single high and two high sets, often rotating down late, post-snap. When he recognizes run, he gets downhill and makes form tackles on play after play. Hill finished the 2016 season with 27 tackles versus the run and 11 stops. Overall, tackling ability definitely goes to Hill. He finished as the 5th highest (14.5) in combined tackling efficiency. When he gets ahold of the offensive player, he doesn’t let go. That is a trait that you want your safety to possess, as he is the team’s last line of defense.

Carroll noted recently that Jones “hasn’t missed a beat” in camp, but didn’t go in much detail beyond that.

Amara Darboh, 106th overall, WR, Michigan
Doug Baldwin is known for being boastful, but not just about himself, also his teammates often. In this case, he was like a proud papa talking about Seattle’s rookie receivers Darboh, David Moore, and Cyril Grayson.

“What (Darboh) has shown us out here on the practice field , also in the meeting rooms, is that he is going to compete at the highest level,” Baldwin said. “That’s all we ask for is a guy to come in and be willing to work as hard as everybody else in the room.”
Baldwin added that Moore has great hands and that Grayson isn’t showing the rust of a guy who didn’t play football in college at LSU.
