Post-Christmas linkage

I hope everyone has made it through the hangovers and too much food and is ready for the final day of the NFL regular season. Today the Seahawks are in Arizona hoping to end on a three game winning streak. Should Seattle get the victory it would also send the Cardinals into the playoffs on a huge downer, stopping them achieving a winning season in the process.

Here are some links to get you in the mood. After today the draft is going to gather a lot more focus as the bowl games come to an end and the playoffs progress.

Kyle Rota at College Talent Scout has published a huge update with reports on prospects like Chris 'Beanie' Wells and Juaquin Iglesias. There will also be a seven round mock draft available soon so check for that.

If you missed it earlier, here's another chance to see the video footage of Rob Rang's interview with Eric Williams from the Tacoma News Tribune. There are seven clips in total and it's well worth a watch as Rang discusses the prospects in some need areas for the 'Hawks.

Todd McShay writes about some of the individual match ups he's looking forward to in the bowl season and includes an updated Scouts Inc. top 32 big board. He has Andre Smith rated at the top, followed by Sam Bradford, Aaron Curry and Michael Crabtree.

Chris Mortensen reports that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wants potential draftees to know that there won't be a rookie wage scale in 2010. With a poor senior class the Seahawks need as many underclassmen to declare as possible.

Now for some mocks, first up Matt McGuire from and he thinks the Seahawks will pass on Michael Crabtree to take Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno fifth overall.

The guys at Saturdays2Sundays have an updated mock up and running. Like us here at Seahawks Draft Blog they have the 'Hawks taking Georgia QB Matt Stafford with the fifth pick.

Finally, New NFL Draft has the Seahawks again passing on Michael Crabtree. This time they select Taylor Mays, safety from USC to improve the secondary.
