I published my first mock draft on December 3rd, with Stafford at the top. Nothing has been more obvious to me that this was going to be how things kicked off in the 2009 draft. I have to believe the Seahawks would have seriously considered the former Bulldog had he fallen to the fourth pick. Unless Tim Ruskell is seriously considering Mark Sanchez, I don't think the Seahawks will take a quarter back in round one.
When Stafford going #1 is confirmed, attention will turn to St Louis. I think it's almost as much of a lock that Jason Smith (OT, Baylor) will be joining Steve Spagnuolo's revolution. The first big questions will arise with Kansas City. Can they trade down? If not, do they reach for a Tyson Jackson type scheme fit, or will they consider Eugene Monroe, Aaron Curry or Michael Crabtree? The intrigue will likely continue into the fourth pick.
