Two more visitors reported today, the first day of voluntary offseason workouts for the Seahawks.

According to Draftinsider.net, Fresno State wide received Davante Adams will visit the Seahawks today. Adams is 6-foot-2, 212 pounds and left school early. He put up huge numbers last season: 131 catches for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns for the Bulldogs.

According to the National Football Post, Washington State strong safety Deone Bucannon will also visit the Seahawks today and tomorrow. Bucannon is a hard hitter with a nasty streak, who picked up several personal fouls during his career on the Palouse. Last season, he was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award and second team all-Pac-12.

  1. Unless Seattle intends to draft a backup S in the first round, Bucannon wont be there for them in the bottom of the second round; he’s too damned fast. Someone will nab him in the top of the second at the latest. Wishful thinking that they have a shot at this dude…

    The Fresno state dude sounds like a Sidney Rice clone. I was hoping for a guy at least 6′-3″ and 220 lbs…ah well, I just want a WR who can be a true #1. Dont see any point in drafting anything else, since we do quite well finding Baldwins and Kearse’s in UDFA.

  2. Macabrevity says:

    As far as WR’s go, would love the kid from Indiana if that’s the direction we’re going, I think he’s going to be a real stud. On the opposite end of my wishlist, I’m hoping we don’t go for Odell Beckham. I’m no expert, have been wrong many times, but I feel like he’s at best going to be a punt returner. My ‘bust-radar’ goes off whenever LSU WR’s are mentioned. Haven’t liked an LSU WR since Wendell Davis.

  3. yankinta says:

    Macabrevity,, I do too but CODY LATIMER (WR from Indiana) will be gone before 32nd overall pick. His stock is going up so fast it’s ridiculous.

    I just hope that Joel Bitonio will last until 32nd, but that’s not very likely either….

    My hope now is that we’ll trade down or trade with Browns or Atlanta or Detroit’s 1st round pick next year. :)

  4. yankinta says:

    PS., I think Odell Beckham is the real deal. But we won’t get a chance to get him unless we move up…

  5. Macabrevity says:

    Yank, you’re probably right about Latimer, don’t see how he slips to us. As for Odell…. I’ll only hope you’re right if he winds up a Hawk. He’s not on my big board, not that any NFL GM’s care, but I’ll be caring pretty enthusiastically come draft day.

  6. I dont think Seattle will draft an OL in the first round. I doubt they draft one in the second. So far, the only top 3 round picks they’ve spent have been on the enormous and slow-footed Carpenter (bust) and Moffitt (megabust).

    Now, I want them to draft the RT of the future (and present) in the first two rounds, and put Bailey and Bowie in the mix at both G spots and RT…I just think Seattle goes back to drafting OL in the lower rounds.

    I think they go WR-DE if they dont draft OL high.

  7. doubledink says:

    I see Bitonio going mid to late 2nd round. But that’s just me.

  8. Dukeshire says:

    It’s nearly irrelevant whether a player is projected to be where Seattle drafts, in order for them to visit workouts and/or bring players in. Due diligence and being thorough is critical in drafting well.

  9. Southendzone says:

    I think Latimer is going to make it to #32. ODB, not likely at all. I’m stuck on Martavis Bryant for our high WR pick.

    That safety from WSU is going to be a great player. Seems to be a hard hitter and have good instincts for picking off the ball.

  10. Looks like 3-5 WR’s (at a conservative estimate) have a legit chance of going in the first round. (Watkins, Evans, Beckham, Lattimer, the little fast dude, etc) I cant remember another draft with so many supposed blue-chip WR prospects. The second round should see several more WR’s go off the board. I think there may be as many as 10 WR’s drafted in the first couple rounds…crazy!

    Of course, the real question isnt how many get drafted in the first two rounds, its how many turn out to be good players! And will the Seahawks score a starter-caliber WR or two in this draft?

  11. Little fast dude= Brandin Cooks. Sorry, I know I suffer from CRS…just dont recall what that stands for…

  12. Bryant has a good shot to be drafted in the first round too, and surely wont be there in the bottom of the second. He’s too big and fast.

  13. Marquise Lee…

  14. Kelvin Benjamin…

    Sheesh, like I said, 10 WR’s have a shot at being drafted in the first two rounds…really makes me wish we had that third round pick though…

  15. 7 picks. I’m thinking 2 OL, 2 DL, 1 Safety, 1 CB, and 1 WR. But I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see us pick no WR’s. We already have great talent and I think Lockette will continue to contribute well on Special Teams and certain formations. So pending resolution of his Miami incident and if we bank on Rice and Harvin staying healthy, we may not see any WR’s from the draft. UDFAs definitely though.

  16. Wow, Bucky Brooks has us taking Jarvis Landry of LSU at WR in the second round…lol, the guy is a shortish player who projects as an NFL slot WR (5′-11″ 205 lbs), and ran a SCINTILLATING 4.77 40 yard dash! Ha! Yeah, thats REALLY what Seattle needs–yet another Slot WR, let alone a slow one!!

    Funniest thing anyone has said about Seattle since pre-Super Bowl! And Brooks usually has interesting stuff to say about Seattle….did someone slip some wacky in his breakfast cereal?!

  17. Seattle has pretty much drafted a WR a year, though they’ve spent two fourths and one second, if you dont count the first and third given up for Harvin.

    I cant see them NOT drafting a WR this year, especially considering the sheer volume of talented WR’s available. I will be shocked (and horrified) if Seattle doesnt spend one of their first two picks on a WR.

  18. Dukeshire says:

    Lol. There will not be 10 receivers drafted in the 1st. 10 in the first two rounds would be a lot.

  19. Thats what I said, Dukeshire–10 WR’s in the first two rounds. Most of those 10 have a chance at being taken in the first, but I would crap a purple twinkie if more than 5 WR’s are taken in the first round. Now, which of those 10 WR’s is actually taken in the first round is still a mystery to the Draftniks, and to me as well…

    Im thinking they get drafted in this order (or close to it):

    Watkins, Evans, Lee, Cooks, Benjamin, Beckham, Latimer (and he could pass Cooks, Benjamin, and Beckham), Bryant…

    Bucky Brooks’ supposed perfect fit in Seattle–Jarvis Landry (all 5′-11″ tall of him lol!)–I seriously doubt is picked before round 4. Seriously, the guy ran a 4.77 40! Thats truly pathetic for a guy under 6′ and barely over 200 lbs! I dont care how great his route-running is, thats criminally slow!

    And the other WR Seattle has brought in–Paul Richardson from Colorado–is a whopping 175 lbs and missed all of 202 with a knee injury. Another talented guy who has a shot of going in the first two rounds, but I will be PISSED if we draft him that high. There are much bigger guys who are just as fast who should be there…no sense wasting it on a scrawny dude who has blown a knee already…

  20. Brooks thinks WR’s Allen Robinson and Davante Adams will go in the second round as well….

    See what I mean? Its a bonanza/Gold Rush on WR’s this year…

    If we cant land a 6′-3″ guy who runs a 4.4 and can actually play this draft, we’re never gonna get one…

  21. How bout Jordan Matthews? Brooks thinks he’ll be gone by our second pick, he’s 6′-3″ tall and ran a 4.46 40!

  22. ….and he’s a cousin of Jerry Rice!

  23. Southendzone says:

    I guess my guy Martavis Bryant isn’t really a 1st round projected guy. Can’t find any mock drafts with him in the 1st round. I do know he visited the 49ers.

    I’ll be really interested to see where Marqise lee ends up.

  24. South–I cant wait to see how all these guys shake out. Its likely a couple of the Draftnik Darlings will fall, and a couple guys no one’s heard of go off the board in the second.

    NFL.com has Latimer listed as a fourth or fifth rounder…thats likely not even close to where he’ll be drafted. And Brooks is the only guy Ive seen talking about this Landry dude, who I guess pulled his hammy running his 40 at the combine, which is why his time sucked…

    Still, a guy who pulls his hammy in the 40 and cant run routes is a dude thats trying waaay too hard to hide the fact he’s slow, at least in my book…

  25. GeorgiaHawk says:

    If the Seahawks do take a WR in the early rounds hopefully it won’t take him three years to learn how to run routes.

    And hopefully like STTBM says, the Seahawks finally get that elite big fast WR that has eluded this team which seems like forever.

  26. Georgia–Well, its ok with me if the guy takes a year or two to get it down. Especially if the guy is 6′-3″ and 220 and runs a 4.4 40! We have Harvin, Baldwin, Kearse and Rice to play in front of him for a year. After that, I hope for some production.

    It sure wouldnt hurt to find the next Alshon Jeffery, now would it?

    Tate did fine his second year, and has improved every year; he still hasnt hit his peak. Unfortunately, if he peaks it wont be in Seattle. On to the next WR!

    Im betting Baldwin is our leading WR next year. Harvin second, Kearse third. But thats because I dont see Harvin playing all year long without injury.

  27. Singularitarian says:

    Adams has some real potential. He reminds me a bit of Brandon Marshall. I’d be fine with him or Latimere in the 1st

  28. flywhtguy23 says:

    I could see us taking Bucannon in the first. I can imagine on 3rd downs, bringing Cam down to cover the tight end, and have two rangy safeties in the back. Despite JJohnson getting re-uped, this has signs of Seahawks surprise on day 1. BPA? I think so. The strong keep getting stronger.

  29. Ray_Maines says:

    Apparently Mel Kiper thinks eight WR’s will go in the first round and five more in the second.

  30. cseahawk says:

    KJR and profootballtalk are saying we traded for Pryor from the raiders……..WTF???

  31. cseahawk says:

    Anyone else hear this?? Pryor from raiders to us…….

  32. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I’m hoping the Seahawks pick Shazier with their #1 if he is still around.
    After this season it’s going to be hard to keep all our young linebackers.
    Shazier is a great player who can step in on day one and make an impact, and he has crazy speed.
    But now that I am beginning to develop a man crush on him he will be long gone. Lol.

  33. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Pryor?
    It better not be a 5th rounder, we need them.
