Two...two draft picks surrendered, both fifth-round selections for a Pro Bowl running back.

The Seattle Seahawks are busily preparing for the NFL combine where the 2012 draft hopefuls will be on display like cuts of rib eye, porterhouse and pork chops.

In addition to looking at players that will help shape their roster in the coming seasons, Seattle will also find out the position of their first draft pick.

Their coin toss versus the Kansas City Chiefs will happen bright and early on February 24th. Hopefully the monkey of winning early matches on the road is still off their back.

The Seahawks will have the opportunity to make some advances in free agency BEFORE the draft in 2012, a nice change from the lockout-interrupted offseason that was 2011.

The Seahawks should have the cap room to be a player in an expected frenzy of free-agent activity. Defensive end and wide receiver are two loaded positions in this free-agent class, and if I need to point out which of those position groups is of keen interest to the Seahawks...well, then I'm not sure why you are interested in this article to begin with.

Other positions will have a lot of competition for limited talent. Tight end is one of them, which will make it difficult for them to re-sign John Carlson. They'll have similar issues with Leroy Hill, as he will be seen as one of the top prospects on the outside.

The following picks are tempered with some assumptions of what the Seahawks will be able to accomplish in free agency.
