Chad Reuter from NFL Draft Scout has published his updated mock draft. He has Seattle taking B.J. Raji (DT, Boston College). We've talked often why Raji might be an unlikely option for the Seahawks. It's interesting that both Reuter and Rob Rang have moved away from Eugene Monroe this week. In case you missed it, Rang has Seattle taking Michael Crabtree.
Adam Schein of Fox Sports is on the Crabtree bandwagon. "I'm not worried about his foot, I'm not worried about his surgery, I'm not worried about anything. I still think he's a top seven pick in the upcoming draft. Seattle will take him at four and if for some reason the Seahawks go offensive tackle... which I understand they might because Walter Jones is getting long in the tooth, there's no way he gets passed the Oakland Raiders at seven." - Schein.
Mel Kiper and Todd McShay record their latest podcast to discuss all the burning draft issues. It's always worth listening to, mainly because an explosive (yet entertaining) argument is never far away with Mel and Todd. Amongst the topics discussed - who's stock might be falling, what positions have the most value and a running back debate.
Walter Cherepinsky updated his mock draft today and still thinks Seattle will take Michael Crabtree. "Though Michael Crabtree going in this spot isn't as much of a lock as it once was, I still feel as though Seattle will take him. A common belief is that the Seahawks have fixed their receiving corps with Houshmandzadeh. That's factually incorrect." - Cherepinsky.
Mike Mayock and Michael Lombardi discuss the kind of risks involved in the NFL Draft. This is crucial for Seattle picking in the top five this year. Chances are, the rookie taken fourth overall will be the biggest earner on the roster (as crazy as that sounds). Making sure you draft a prospect that can not only produce but also as quickly as possible will be a tough challenge for Tim Ruskell.
