Wednesday links: Seahawks still have high hopes for 2013 Draft class

We’re headed off today to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, where the Seahawks and the other 31 NFL teams evaluate 335 college prospects in advance of the draft May 8-10.

And in advance of this year’s Combine, I wrote this story for today’s paper looking back at last year’s class — and how the Seahawks could have a similar strategy come draft time this year.

As a dominating Super Bowl champ with a young roster, Seattle’s needs are relative to those of other teams. Also, how free agency unfolds figures to go a long way toward determining exactly what Seattle’s needs are come draft day.

As noted, I’ll be in Indianapolis, as will Jayson Jenks. So make sure to check back often the next few days for news, notes, quotes and other stuff from the Combine.
