With the draft order starting to take a more confirmed shape a plethora of mocks have come to the surface as people try to predict how the 2009 draft will unfold.
Lets start with Drafttek. They have the Seahawks selecting Michael Oher (OT, Ole Miss) fourth overall. The top two picks in his mocks are also offensive linemen - Andre Smith and Eugene Monroe.
Dane Brugler at NFL Draft Source also thinks Seattle will take a tackle, but has Tim Ruskell picking up Eugene Monroe. The Virginia prospect has had mixed reviews over the year but remember - this guy stopped Branden Albert playing left guard in college. That has to count for something.
New Sport Draft has the 'Hawks picking Michael Crabtree (WR, Texas Tech). He's been a popular pick for Seattle in a lot of mocks this year.
Robert Davis at Football's Future also goes with Seattle taking the talented receiver. He also has Brian Orakpo going third overall to the Chiefs, that would be a rather big reach for Kansas City even though they need a pass rush.
Michael Abromowitz at the football expert also says the Seahawks take Crabtree. He hasn't got Andre Smith (OT, Alabama) going in the top five, instead suggesting Cleveland will take the local boy Chris Wells at running back. A bookend of Joe Thomas on the left and Andre Smith on the right sounds pretty good to me.
Bronco Madness follow the trend by sending Crabtree to the northwest. This time the Chiefs take Aaron Curry third overall. Is there a chance his stock rises that much?
The Draft King has the 'Hawks picking Crabtree too. He also has Sam Bradford going to the Lions first overall. With their second pick at number 20 (taken from Dallas) he has them taking a linebacker (Clint Sintim) ahead of tackles Eugene Monroe and Jason Smith who are still on the board. Not sure about that move personally. If the Lions can get a left tackle and a franchise quarter back in the first round, they can begin to rebuild from that platform.
NFL Mock Draft Aces have the Seahawks taking Georgia prospect Matt Stafford (QB).
