Friday links

Hope you're all looking forward to the weekend. Seattle travel to St. Louis this week hoping to avoid a 7th straight defeat. The result of this game will dramatically affect the draft position of the Seahawks for the 2009 draft, such a shame that is the major talking point heading into a divisional clash.

Here are some links to get you through to Saturday...

Frank Hughes discusses the possibility of selecting Walter Jones' replacement in the 2009 draft.

Mike Sando debates whether the Cardinals would have been better taking Adrian Peterson instead of Levi Brown in the 2007 NFL Draft. This could be a similar debate Seattle are faced with in 2009, whether to take a play maker or an offensive tackle.

Mel Kiper opens up his mailbag to discuss the college prospects.

Pat Forde and Ivan Maisel debate who will be awarded the Heisman Trophy this weekend.

Here's an article I wrote for Football Diner discussing whether or not the Seahawks can use Baltimore as a blue print for success in 2009.

Now for some predictions and WalterFootball has an updated mock draft here. You can also check out his mock draft database currently charting 90 mocks.

Draft Tek has Andre Smith going number one overall to the Lions. He also predicts Seattle take Michael Crabtree 5th overall.

Steve Lourie at NFL Weekly also has Seattle drafting Michael Crabtree. He thinks if Sam Bradford declares, he'll go first overall.

Q.I. Sports says Andre Smith is destined for Detroit and is another who thinks Seattle will snag Crabtree with the fifth pick.

Finally, a rival perspective on the draft. Kansas City Chiefs Fanatic has us taking Malcolm Jenkins with the fourth pick. He doesn't have Sam Bradford or Michael Crabtree declaring in his mock.
