Earlier this week we looked at the indecision amongst experts when it comes to predicting Seattle's choice in the first round. In a sample of six pundits, each had a different selection with the fourth pick. Add another name to the list - Chris 'Beanie' Wells (RB, Ohio State).
"They would have liked to have Aaron Curry to fill a need at outside linebacker but guess what, they want an impact player. That's what Jim Mora told me. He wants to get the running game going. It's Chris Wells in a shade over Michael Crabtree, the wide receiver from Texas Tech." - Charley Casserly, NFL.com
We've been debating a lot recently about the possible interest Seattle have in Knowshon Moreno. The same issues that make that move difficult stand true with Wells - it'd be a big investment (approx. $60m) for a prospect to play in a running back by committee system. However, call this one a hunch - both running backs could be getting more attention that most people think.
