John Schneider has made a career of flummoxing the draft pundits. That is because they predict his moves based on what other NFL teams do. This story breaks down how Schneider has approached his five drafts in Seattle, and how that may foreshadow what is to come.

Weeks and months have passed since the Seahawks fell a yard short of back-to-back Lombardi trophies. Time is said to heal all wounds, but time will never change the outcome of that game. What time can offer is an opportunity for redemption. Pete Carroll and John Schneider are chasing the sunrise, doing everything they can to keep ascension and opportunity on their side. One championship would be below the standard they have set. History tells us that their ability to keep the Sun from setting on their ambitions is inextricably linked to how well they draft after their first ring.

It has been nearly four weeks since I last posted here. That is easily the longest drought for me on HawkBlogger.com in years. I love the offseason. It is when I can take my time to do deep and unique analysis that the regular season pace makes more challenging. The site actually had a record-setting traffic month after the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl. Walking away from that was tough, but I have another love that also happens to pay the bills, and it needed all my attention. Many of you have asked what I do for a living and how in the world I write this blog and hold a full-time job. Here is where I reveal all, and introduce you to a new app that can make any blogger look like a star.

After everything that's happened in the last week, it seemed like a good idea to start off this one with a quick recap of how things stand (as of this moment, anyway) with the Seahawks and their own free agents. A few of these signings technically occurred just prior to the official start of free agency, but I'm going to go ahead and include them here for the sake of completeness. One other relatively small but vitally important group that deserves a quick mention here are the players who would be free agents right now had John Schneider not been so proactive during the 2014 season in extending their contracts (note: ages shown in parentheses will be the player's age at the start of the 2015 season):

But as weird as it sounds, it happened. And should we be all that surprised? We know the Seahawks' front office has never backed down from making controversial decisions in the name of making the team better. But trading Unger? A cornerstone of the offense? Russell Wilson's field general? No way.
Well, yes way. Now that it's been a few hours and the new reality has sunk in, I actually like this deal significantly more than I did when it was first announced.
