Thursday linkage

Just two more weeks left of the regular season and we anticipate part three of the Holmgren & Favre farewell embrace. Here's some links to get you in the mood for some football this weekend.

Aaron Weinberg at takes a look at the Seahawks' success when they've previously picked in the top five of the NFL draft.

Here's an archived article by Matthew Quirk at the Atlantic from a couple of year's ago looking at 'the loser's curse'.

USC safety and Seattle native Taylor Mays has the NFL in his sights according to Scott Wolf from the Los Angeles Daily News.

Now it's time for some mock drafts. Dane Brugler at NFL Draft Source has Seattle taking Ohio State corner back Malcolm Jenkins fifth overall.

Kansas City Chiefs fanatic agrees with Dane and also has us taking Jenkins.

Walter Cherepinsky has us taking Michael Crabtree, wide receiver from Texas Tech, in his latest mock draft.

Scott Wright at Draft Countdown also thinks we'll be seeing Crabtree at Qwest Field next year.

Not bucking with the trend, Draft Tek has another mock with Crabtree heading to the Northwest. strangely has Seattle picking third overall, ahead of the Rams in fourth, but thinks the Seahawks will take Michael Crabtree with their first round selection.

That's all for now. Later on today we'll have the results of our second poll to find out who should top Seattle's draft board in 2009 and we'll also be revealing our new poll for this week so don't forget to vote!
