Seahawks draft guessing game!!!

Posted on: April 20, 2010 7:40 pm
Time to guess what on earth the Seahawks will do.  Obviously, with a new coach and GM who apparently don't value 2nd round picks, it will be interesting to see how they screw this up.  Haven't seen them coach, but he can't be worse than Mora.  So I have got multiple picks for the first two.

PC and Schneider screw the pooch:
Spiller 6th and Derrick Morgan 14th.  Who cares that we don't have offensive lineman?  We need playmakers and the best players available (because that worked out so well with Curry compared to the other two rookie, pro bowl LBs).  Why not get a WR with the 2nd round pick to top it all off? 

USC reigns:
Taylor Mays and Charles Brown in whatever order.  Not horrible, as long as Mays plays run and they get a cover safety like Berry (but obviously not Berry).  Add Griffin and McKnight and there you go.

Clipboard Jesus just doesn't do it for us:
Jimmy Clausen 6th and Spiller 14th (probably).  Because again, we're idiots.  Reggie Bush is such a STUD for the Saints (I think they mean Pierre Thomas) and Charlie Whithurst needs to be the gift that keeps on giving.  Why not trade a 2nd rounder for a 3rd stringer when you already had Teel?  Rick Mirer 2, baby!!!

Lets get serious. 

It really depends on what KC does (again).  Last year, they didn't pick Curry, and now the Seahawks look stupid.  If KC picks Berry (and they should), then the Seahawks draft Trent Williams.  If not, and we don't pick up Berry, I'd be surprised.  But then again, Curry was a sure thing too, and Berry is mediocre against the run (but can cover and knock out teeth).  My guess is Curry will be better, with better coaching and being turned loose, and KC is stupid, and Seattle doesn't want Holmgren to get him and make us look stupid again, so:

Round 1, 6th overall - Eric Berry, FS    In a pass happy league, Seattle needs a Troy Polamalu, especially if Crabtree tries to bite them in the butt for not picking him.

Round 1, 14th overall - Chuck Brown, OT   A no brainer pick.  Grimm likes him.  Carroll likes him.  Seattle wants an OT.  C'mon man.  Only other option is to trade down (I would guess they'd pick a WR with whatever they'd get for it, LeFell maybe) and pick whoever The City picks out of Iupati and Brown. 

Round 2, 60th overall - RB  I don't care if it is Hardesty, Ben Tate, or Jonathan Dwyer.  All are cheaper and better every down backs than Spiller and would compliment Forsett (the MAN) nicely.  Also makes the Chargers look stupid if the RB we draft is better than the RB they draft. Beats Berry a few times

Round 4, 104th overall - DE is a big need that hasn't been addressed.  If Greg Hardy (Ole Miss DE) is here, take him.  If not, hopefully WR LeFell will fall, but WRs Marcus Easley and Dezmon Briscoe have size and skills.

Round 4, 127th overall - If they took Greg Hardy, then WR Briscoe could still be available.  If not, why not UW Husky Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, DE?  Undersized, but if he can blast Forsett, then he has my respect.  Clifton Geathers would also work (6'8", DE from the other USC).

Round 5, 133rd overall - Alterraun Verner, CB
Not bad size and speed, and was 1st team all Pac-10.  Also Ben Burney, CB from Colorado could work too.

Round 5, 139th overall - Myron Rolle, SS or Larry Asante, SS.  I'd prefer Rolle, because he has intelligence (obviously), size, and high character/desire.  Babs + Berry + Rolle = awesome.

Round 6, 176th overall and Round 7, 245th overall - Ciron Black, OG  Grimm likes later lineman, and this guy is big.  Several other lineman should still be available for these last two picks. Chris Marinelli OT from Stanford (1st team Pac-10), Linkenbach OT from Cincy (only player who showed up in the Sugar Bowl), and Brandon Carter, OT from Texas Tech, one of the few to stop the House of Spears Suh and McCoy.  And he's crazy. 

There you have it.  (Potentiall) Solves the Safety problem and O-line problem, helps the DE, WR, and Corner problems, and gives Forsett a buddy for a dynamic duo.  But I don't run things, and they'll probably draft Spiller, Dez Bryant, and Tony Pike.  Sweet.
