Saturday links

Chris Sullivan at Seahawk Addicts has published a mock draft. He thinks Seattle will take Michael Crabtree, with Matt Stafford going first overall to the Detroit Lions. Sullivan's first nine picks are the same as my current mock draft - great minds etc.

Walter Cherepinsky updated his mock draft today. "The Seahawks spent a lot of money on T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who turns 32 in September. They wouldn't have made that signing if they didn't think they could win right now. They clearly know that their window is closing; Hasselbeck, Houshmandzadeh and Walter Jones have only a few highly productive seasons remaining. With that in mind, Seattle will be looking for a player to help them immediately. Crabtree provides that sort of upside over Monroe." - Cherepinsky

Matt McGuire wonders why we haven't seen a mock draft from Mike Mayock. "He is one of the two best NFL Draft analysts in the world along with Mel Kiper. So, where is HIS mock draft? Many people from NFL.com and the NFL Network have written mock drafts, yet none of them are true NFL Draft analysts. Jamie Dukes, Steve Wyche and Pat Kirwan are on this list. Why have they written mock drafts, yet arguably the most famous football analyst on the NFL Network, Mike Mayock, has put out nothing in terms of a mock yet?" - McGuire

Rob Rang reports on the Northern Illinois pro-day where Larry English was performing for scouts. He's projected as more of an OLB in a 3-4, which is probably why the Seahawks weren't listed amongst a number of team's present. "English has the tools to warrant consideration late in the first round, but this year's unique collection of outside linebackers and hybrid defensive ends likely to make the transition to the OLB position could push him into the mid second range." - Rang

"Hasselbeck says don't draft Stafford". That would be a great headline right? Of course we're talking about Tim Hasselbeck, younger brother of Matt. He says team's should avoid the Georgia prospect with the higher picks. I've posted the video below:

Haha, damnit, all nine? Alright, next iteration I'll have the Lions taking Raji and the Hawks taking the top Long Snapper.

Great video! Tim is clearly not a bitter undrafted Free Agent.
