John Schneider & Mike Macdonald On Selecting G Christian Haynes In Third Round Of 2024 NFL Draft


With perfect comedic timing, Seahawks coach Mike Macdonald jumped in to add, “It wasn’t me.”

Ultimately, the Seahawks were able to land Haynes, a four-year starter and two-year captain at UConn who started 49 consecutive games, earning third-team AP All-Pro honors each of the past two seasons.

“Smart, tough reliable, 50 starts, length, explosiveness, great pass protector, plays with some nasty,” Schneider said. “Obviously we’re really excited.”

Schneider later further elaborated on Haynes, praising his, “Initial quickness, length, he can get under people, he can roll his hips. The pass protection stuff is legit, lateral movement, stays in front of people, he’s got strong hands, he’s got anchor. He’s just a really good football player. He’s so experienced, he knows the nuances, he had a great zoom interview with (offensive line coach Scott) Huff, they love the football intelligence. Everybody’s just really excited. He’s played a ton of ball. 50 of 51 starts, he’s had 48 pressures in 1,687 snaps. The guy’s really, really experienced. This was a full buy-in, coaches, scouting, analytics. Everybody was really excited.”
