Special day

Here comes the… bride?

You might laugh, but several Seahawks staffers are saying the draft is like wedding day for an NFL team.

Hear them out — organizations spend nearly a year preparing for the big day, only to see it come and go in a flash. The Seahawks, for example, have a team of 15 scouting and executive personnel who study and visit hundreds of prospects during the year — all for the team’s nine selections in this year’s draft.

All told, the nine picks will take a max of 57 minutes to make during the next three days. Sounds a lot like the amount of time a wedding lasts from the processional to the recessional.

But either way you cut it, it’s game day for the Seahawks.

Kickoff’s at 4:30 p.m. on ESPN and NFL Network.
