Chris Wells to visit with Seahawks

Aaron Wilson from Pro Football Talk is today reporting that Ohio State running back Chris Wells will visit with the Seattle Seahawks in the upcoming weeks.

"Ohio State star running back Chris 'Beanie' Wells is scheduled to visit multiple NFL teams over the next few weeks, according to a league source. Among the visits Wells currently has planned: the Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks." - Aaron Wilson

The strength of the source is unclear but with reports this week that Seattle are also meeting with Kansas State quarter back Josh Freeman, the Seahawks are clearly making sure no stone is left unturned. Yesterday, Charley Casserly predicted Seattle would draft Beanie Wells with the fourth overall pick.

Preparing for if Wells were to fall to us in round two. That's what I think. Unlikely, but possible.

Pat Kirwan has a new mock up on NFL.com that is a little different. The two tackles going 1,2 and Orapko at 3, leaving Seattle to take Stafford. With KC switching to a 3-4 and the Chiefs needing a pass rush from an outside LB, Orapko makes more sense than Curry. Imagine Seattle having Curry, Crabtree and Stafford on the board at 4?

I still think seatlle will trade down and hope for freemen or sanches.
Rob do you think Mora will use senaca in a type of wildcat off, as he has hinted at. could we have a texas tech combo in the draft, as harrell seems like a soild west coast offense read and react "smarts" qb? that could learn behind hassleback.

We will learn A lot before the draft. If the beat writers start leaking Sanches to seattle, then seattle is shoping that pick and trying to scare Jacksonville, jets and San fran? It's always fun to watch Gm play the media at this time. It already starting to happen with stafford going to seattle and high on freedmon!

Hi annonymous,

I think there's a chance Seattle will find ways to get Seneca Wallace involved if he isn't starting at quarter back. Mike Holmgren was quite a conservative head coach, but I get the feeling the team might, if not totally opening things up, will experiment in certain circumstances. Baltimore occassionally brought in Troy Smith for the odd snap last year and there's no reason why Wallace won't do the same.
