Just a quick message to let you know my computer was infected with a virus yesterday and has since decided to shut itself down in a way reminiscent of a Detroit Lions defensive scheme. My access to the internet is currently limited but I'll do my best to keep the updates flowing, I'm hoping to have the computer repaired or replaced by Wednesday.
In the meantime, here are some mocks to see you through in the aftermath of a Seahawks absent wildcard weekend.
Draft Tek have compiled a new mock using their sophisticated software. They have the Seahawks selecting Michael Crabtree with the fourth pick. The New NFL Draft agree with that selection, they also have Crabtree heading north west.
NFL Smackdown (which describes itself as the 'mecca' of smack talk) has the 'Hawks picking Sooners QB Sam Bradford. In their mock, Crabtree drops to the 10th selection and Matt Stafford falls all the way to 17th.
FFJungle goes in a different direction and has Seattle going defense. They select Ohio State corner back Malcolm Jenkins fourth overall. Tony Conty at NFL Draft Blitz also thinks the Seahawks will go defense and select Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry.
QI Sports always put up a good mock draft with clips of every prospect. They also have stoked a big talking point by putting Mark Sanchez as the first overall pick in 2009. He's yet to indicate whether he'll stay at USC or declare, but he's clearly a talented quarter back.
Joe Montgomery at Draft Connection thinks Seattle will take left tackle Eugene Monroe.
Finally, the Scouts Notebook has the 'Hawks picking a running back - Chris 'Beanie' Wells from Ohio State.
Overall quite a lot of difference in who Seattle might take with the fourth pick. Over recent weeks nearly every mock has touted Michael Crabtree as a Seahawk in waiting. This is the first real evidence of a sway in opinion amongst mock draft pundits.
