RENTON http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonl...att-gay-jersey , Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks started the week of the NFL draft with the fewest picks of any team in the league with four.They ended up making 11 picks by the time the draft wrapped up on Saturday, tied for the second-most in the league and topped only by the 12 picks from Minnesota.Seattle general manager John Schneider was at it again, making seven trades to move around and turn the concern over the lack of picks into an avalanche of selections for a team that appears on the cusp of again being a contender in the NFC.“This was not a draft we had big holes. We didn’t feel like that,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “We were able to look at the guys and see who was coming down the pike. … This feels like one of those rosters we had four or five years ago, about five years ago, that it really felt like there were guys on our team that other people are going to want, and that’s a good spot to be in.”Defense again won out with six picks, including defensive end L.J. Collier in the first round and safety Marquise Blair in the second round. But Seattle’s five picks on offense included three wide receivers, headlined by D.K. Metcalf.WHO THEY GOTSeattle appeared to accomplish a number of its goals. Along with Collier, Blair and Metcalf, Seattle landed two linebackers in a deep class in Cody Barton and Ben Burr-Kirven. Along with Metcalf, Seattle got Gary Jennings and John Ursua at wide receiver. The secondary was bolstered by Ugo Amadi and the line of scrimmage added guard Phil Haynes and defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas.SURPRISE MOVEThere was shock that Metcalf was still available at the end of the second round, prompting Schneider to make the rare decision to move up and land the big wide receiver who dominated pre-draft workouts. But the surprise was Seattle’s decision to use two picks on linebackers. Barton and Burr-Kirven were both stars in the Pac-12, but their picks were curious considering the depth the Seahawks already had at linebacker. Seattle is set among its starters with Bobby Wagner http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline....-brown-jersey , K.J. Wright and Mychal Kendricks, so both Barton and Burr-Kirven will have to make an impact on special teams initially to make the roster.“I know that I’m a guy that is hopefully going to be a core special teamer for them and go down and do the dirty work, cover kicks, block, all that kind of stuff. I think that’s where it starts,” Burr-Kirven said.HOW THEY DIDThe seven trades yielded the Seahawks quantity, which was crucial for a team trying to develop young, competitive depth. It was the formula the Seahawks used to be Super Bowl champions at one time. The picks of Collier and Metcalf are important, but the fourth-round picks of Jennings, Haynes and Amadi may end up being the difference in whether this draft class is great or just OK. Seattle could have landed a future starting wide receiver, offensive lineman and free safety or nickel cornerback out of that trio.WHAT’S NEXT?Seattle still needs help on the defensive line, but the decision to trade Frank Clark opened enough salary cap space that the Seahawks could take the chance on a number of free agents on a one-year, prove-it type of deal to see if they can find a couple of options to help make up for the loss of Clark. The additions of Collier and Christmas make it clear a pass-rush specialist will be the priority. Seattle needs another quarterback with only two on the roster, a tight end and potentially another cornerback. ALLEN PARK http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline...-hooker-jersey , Mich. (AP) — If there was an easy way for the Detroit Lions to solve their issues near the goal line, they probably would have done it by now.Instead, those problems have the Lions falling behind in the playoff race.Despite three second-half opportunities inside the Pittsburgh 10-yard line, Detroit was held without a touchdown in a 20-15 loss Sunday night. It was the second time this season the Lions lost in large part because of their inability to reach the end zone from in close, and whether the play-calling or the execution is more to blame, Detroit now has some real missed opportunities to look back on.“There’s no magic to it,” coach Jim Caldwell said Monday. “It’s just strictly working at what you’re doing and getting better. Execution’s got to be better. We didn’t execute as well as we’re capable.”The Lions (3-4) have lost three in a row, and Sunday’s game was certainly there for the taking. Detroit finished with 482 yards of offense but no touchdowns.“I think if we’d put it in the end zone, you’d call this a breakout performance,” quarterback Matthew Stafford said. “We got inside the 10 and didn’t put the ball in the end zone for one reason or another. But from 20 to 20, we were playing as good of football as we have this year I think.”In September, the Lions lost to Atlanta when Golden Tate was ruled down just short of what could have been a game-winning touchdown. Down 30-26, the Lions had first-and-goal at the 1. Stafford threw incomplete twice before his completion to Tate was ruled short of the end zone after a review, ending the game .That sequence illustrated the perils of passing out of the shotgun at the goal line — it’s sometimes difficult because the defense has limited space to cover. But the clock was a factor and the Lions were out of timeouts Taylor Rapp Jersey , limiting their options a bit.Against the Steelers, Detroit tried running the ball near the goal line, but that didn’t work either. The Lions’ running game is ranked near the bottom of the league.“We have to have a respectable running game, make teams honor it,” Caldwell said.The Lions had first-and-goal from the 4 in the third quarter, with the Steelers up 13-12. A run by Dwayne Washington reached the 1, then Stafford threw incomplete and Washington was stopped on another run. Detroit went for it on fourth down from the 1 and had a pass called from the shotgun, but Stafford tried to run the ball in after seeing how many Pittsburgh players were back in coverage. He was stopped.On their next possession, the Lions again had first-and-goal from the 4. After an incompletion, Detroit tried a couple running plays with Washington but didn’t score. The Lions finally settled for a field goal.Late in the fourth quarter, Detroit was back inside the 10, but on that drive, the Lions never got closer than the 6 before turning the ball over on downs.“The fact of the matter is we’ve got to be able to get it in one way or another,” Caldwell said after the game. “We tried several different ways and we got to keep trying. I think we’re capable.”NOTES: DT A’Shawn Robinson was ejected following a skirmish at the end of the game while the Steelers were kneeling out the clock. “When you’re wrong Shareef Miller Jersey , you’re wrong. Obviously, he was penalized, ejected from the game, so that’s an issue,” Caldwell said. “There’s three guys that ran out onto the field, that’s an issue. So, those are the things we got to address. We’re not going to stand for it. … We want to play this game the way it’s supposed to be played and losing your poise is not one of those things. So, we’ll handle that. We’ll handle it in house and certainly the league may have something to say about it as well.” … P Sam Martin played for the first time this season after being on the non-football injury list. He did not specify how he got hurt. “I wasn’t doing anything stupid,” Martin said. “It’s a freak accident. It’s not even worth the story.” … The Lions put G Tim Lelito (thigh) on injured reserve and signed DE Jacquies Smith.
