This is it.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, brace yourselves for what is arguably the most overhyped non-event in all of professional sports.
Yes, the NFL draft will begin on Thursday night in New York City, but don't expect the Seattle Seahawks to get in on any of the action, as general manager John Schneider joked earlier this week to the Associated Press, "We're going to sit there and watch YouTube Percy Harvin highlights."
Perhaps that sounds dull, but rest assured that nothing that Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll do from Friday onward will be by any measure of comparison.
In other words, expect the unexpected while the 'Hawks braintrust manage 10 picks across the final six rounds of the draft in the hopes of adding a few more players to a roster looking to make a significant push for a championship.
Can they do it?
After last year I'd be hard-pressed to doubt them. As for me though, I will try not to make a mockery of the process one final time in offering my best guess as to what the 'Hawks could do this weekend.
With any luck, I might get a few picks right while offering my patented disclaimer one last time.
