John Schneider’s trip to Laramie, Wyoming to view the pro day of quarterback Josh Allen on March 23 apparently seemed to raise some eyebrows among Russell Wilson’s inner circle.
But the Seahawks General Manager may have just been scratching a curiosity itch more than anything else. According to Aaron Levine of Q13 in Seattle, Schneider said he wanted to see Allen throw in person after missing a chance to view him during the college season.

I hadn’t seen him play live, Schneider said. I was supposed to see him play in San Jose before we played San Francisco and he was injured and didn’t play in the game, so I just wanted to go check him out.
So any furor over Schneider’s trip to Wyoming would seem to be misplaced. For now, it appears Schneider was merely taking the chance to see a player he hadn’t been able to watch during the season, which seems to be a good way to live up to the job description.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that South Carolina’s Hayden Hurst and South Dakota State’s Dallas Goedert are in Miami to meet Womens Zach Fulton Jersey with the team. Both players have been projected as potential selections during the first two days of the draft.
Goedert caught 164 passes for 2,404 yards and 18 touchdowns over his final two collegiate seasons. Hurst wasn’t quite as productive 鈥?92 catches for 1,175 yards and three touchdowns 鈥?but earns good marks as a balanced tight end who can contribute as both a receiver and a blocker.
Oklahoma’s Mark Andrews and Penn State’s Mike Gesicki generally join Goedert and Hurst at the top of the rankings for tight ends. Seeing any of them wind up with the Dolphins will not come as a great surprise later this month.
The only run Miranda allowed was due to defensive mistakes and likely would not have scored if first baseman Vogelbach threw home after fielding Josh Reddick’s ground ball instead of attempting to start a double play. Houston left the bases loaded twice against Miranda, the most egregious coming in the second inning when Jake Marisnick struck out looking and George Springer went down swinging to end the threat. Miranda ended his night getting Reddick to fly out to center field with the bases loaded to end the fifth inning.
