The Seattle Seahawks were in the hunt for a quick and explosive defender with their first-round pick in the NFL Draft. In addition to LB Bruce Irvin, who the team selected No. 15 overall, Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly and Tampa Bay Buccaneers SS Mark Barron were also on the team's wish list, according to general manager John Schneider. "Obviously we felt strongly about Barron, we felt strongly about Kuechly as well, but we really wanted to address our pass rush.

Updating a previous item, Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said he would like to trade back from the No. 25 overall pick in the NFL Draft, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. "Personally, I'd like to move back," Schneider said. "I have confidence in our ability in those middle rounds to do some good stuff." The Seahawks are currently without a third-round draft pick, which Schneider acknowledged he isn't happy about, and a trade down could help add additional selections. However, Schneider admitted that trading down won't be easy. "It's actually easier to go up than it is to go back," Schneider said. "I think there's a number of teams that would like to go back right now. Not having a third-round pick, I'm not excited about that."

Kevin Seifert, of ESPN.com, reports Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson said he has spoken with former San Francisco 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan recently "as a friend" but "not from a business standpoint." Technically, McCloughan remains an employee of the 49ers and would not be able to discuss job opportunities with any team. The Packers haven't yet filled the opening left behind by former director of football operations John Schneider, who left to become general manager of the Seattle Seahawks. Thompson said he wasn't certain whether the job will be filled. "We'll see," Thompson said. "It depends on how we make it through the spring. We're functioning pretty well right now."
