As the city of Seattle slowly adjusts to the absence of Pete Carroll, Jody Allen and GM John Schneider have been hard at work filling the holes left by our max coaching exodus. It's been a chaotic few weeks, but now that McDonald has been hired, it's time for us Seahawks to look to the draft. The Hawks pick with at 16th this year which leaves our options more open then they've been for a majority of the Pete Carroll era. I'd like to remind everyone, It's been 13 years since the Seahawks picked a QB with the belief that they would lead us to a Lombardi.
The News of Grubb's interview with the Seahawks could mean the Seahawks are contemplating drafting Michael Penix Jr with their first round pick. No one knows Michael better than Grubb and this interview will be more valuable than many of the analysts opinions. Penix is going to need a coach who is confident in his arm and who will let him throw the ball down the field. Who better to do that than the very man who coached him to a national championship game. The Seahawks are determined to spice up their offense and bring in new talent and ideas this has become very evident with their switch from the oldest coach in the NFL to the youngest. Ryan Grubb might be that secret ingredient every NFL offense needs. Coach Macdonald wants to play an aggressive style of offensive but push the ball down the field when possible. I believe that that's a perfect situation for a rookie like Penix, especially with a back like K9 and a Veteran like Geno to mentor him.
Secondly, this could also mean the Seahawks are looking more into Washington OL standout Troy Fautanu. Fautanu is who most draft analysts project the Seahawks to draft this coming April. His short arms might require him to move inside, but Fautanu will be a wrecking ball regardless of where he plays.
Either way, both situations are pretty awesome for Seahawk/Husky fans.
