Did anyone else feel like they were missing out on something Thursday night during the first round of the NFL draft?
While it made complete sense for the Seattle Seahawks to stay firmly fixed on the sidelines after having traded their first round pick what seems like ages ago in exchange for Percy Harvin, it was a strange feeling to the see them remain quiet all evening.
Fortunately, there should be plenty to focus on tomorrow night when the 'Hawks are back on the board with the No. 56 and No. 87 overall picks.
Who exactly should the team be targeting on Day 2 in the second and third rounds?
The answer to that question is always a bit challenging given the fact that you never can tell how the Seahawks front office exactly goes about grading players. They tend to defy whatever draftniks like Mel Kiper, Jr. suggest.
In other words, if the 'Hawks like someone, they really don't tend to care where or when they draft them. Last year, this strategy worked out well with both Bruce Irvin and Russell Wilson, but the year before, you could argue that the team whiffed on James Carpenter.
Does this mean that we can expect some more quirky moves in 2013?
It's certainly possible, and in preparation for Friday night, I'd like put forth seven names that the team not only could target, but should target, depending on how things unfold.
Some may address key positional needs going into next season, while others may be too good to pass up based on their skill-set in building the 'Hawks roster long-term.
Read on to find out who they are.
