Michael Lombardi from the National Football Post has published a new mock draft. He has the Seahawks taking Jason Smith (OT, Baylor). He has Michael Crabtree falling to the 13th pick (Washington) with St. Louis passing on the top two offensive tackles to take Aaron Curry.
Mel Kiper has updated his 'top 25' big board. There's little change at the top, with Aaron Curry ranked the number one prospect and Michael Crabtree in second place. Other worthwhile mentions - Matt Stafford (3rd), Jason Smith (4th) and Eugene Monroe (9th).
The NFL Network has news of Connecticut's and Texas' pro days. There were some highly rated prospects on show, including UConn's Donald Brown, Darrius Butler and William Beatty. Representing Texas - Brian Orakpo.
Matt McGuire updates his mock draft. He still thinks the Seahawks take Michael Crabtree in round one and LeSean McCoy (RB, Pitt) in the second. "Remember Houshmandzadeh is a 31-year-old veteran and Deion Branch can't seem to stay healthy, so they might still want a young play-maker at that position." - McGuire.
Kyle Rota publishes scouting reports for McCoy and his Pittsburgh teammate Scott McKillop (ILB). On McCoy: "The potential to be a very good ball carrier is there, but McCoy probably needs a year before he is ready for a starting role and even then I question his ability to be a 3 down back." - Rota.
Eric Williams thinks the Seahawks need a speed back and might not consider Knowshon Moreno. I agree that the team could use some speed, we saw Chris Johnson's influence on the Tennessee offense in 2008. But I disagree Seattle wouldn't show interest in Moreno. As I reported last week, the team were keeping a watchful eye on the Georgia playmaker. He's a Tim Ruskell prospect down to a tee - and could be a wildcard choice for the Seahawks.
Todd McShay ponders a mock draft where Matt Stafford isn't taken first overall by the Detroit. So where does the Georgia quarter back end up? He thinks Seattle. I've posted the video below:
