UNBELIEVABLE: seattle seahawks head coach Mike Macdonald request for termination of contract as he bitterly explained…..

After trading for Sam Howell (and restructuring Geno Smith’s contract) taking a quarterback in Round 1 feels unlikely. Meanwhile, after seeing Damien Lewis and Evan Brown depart, interior offensive line has become a focus, especially with only short-term deals handed out to free agents.

We used that knowledge and insight from two draft experts this week and had three clear takeaways on Bump and Stacy:

It’s a sneaky deep center class

Which is great news for a Seahawks team that’s had a revolving door at the position.

Last year’s starter, Brown, is departing after one season. Seattle added Olu Oluwatimi in the draft last year and signed former Browns backup Nick Harris, who has four starts under his belt, in free agency. Both will be competing at the spot in camp, but there are some Day 2 names Seattle can throw into the mix in the hopes of finding, for the first time in years, a long-term solution at center.

The Athletic’s Nick Baumgardner broke it down.

“We talk a lot about the offensive tackles and that’s the deepest spot maybe in the draft, but center is really good,” he said. “I think there’s two guys – one for sure in Jackson Powers-Johnson from Oregon, who I think is a for sure first-round pick. I would say maybe two (first-rounders) with Zach Frazier from West Virginia depending on maybe (his) medicals. Then you’ve got Sedrick Van Pran (Georgia), Tanor Bortolini (Wisconsin), Dylan McMahon (N.C. State). I think there could be a little run on them somewhere along the line on Day 2 because there are so many teams that need them. It’s a good year to need a center and there are a lot available.”
