Clark Judge follows up his article yesterday regarding the Seahawks and Michael Crabtree with a new mock draft. He maintains that if Crabtree is on the board, the Seahawks have to take him. "Seahawks could take a QB or OT, but how do you pass on Crabtree if he's here?"
Marshall Faulk believes the Seahawks should consider drafting a running back early on. "Players like "Beanie" Wells or Knowshon Moreno could immediately impact a weaker roster, despite having limited roles. They're the types of players who could come off the bench for a few selective carries a game, but could also help move the chains as a featured back if needed. There is value there."
Rob Rang has some interesting news regarding the draft stock of Chris 'Beanie' Wells and Brian Orakpo. Rang reports that Wells could be moving up draft boards, drawing comparisons to Larry Johnson. On the other hand, interest may be declining in Texas defensive end Orakpo. "I've spoken to scouts who operate for teams using the 4-3 and 3-4 alignments and each club is souring on the Longhorn pass-rusher."
Danny O'Neil says an interview between the Seahawks and Michael Oher at the scouting combine didn't go too well. The Ole Miss offensive lineman hasn't really been in the debate to go fourth overall, so I wouldn't read too much into this.
