Thought I'd put out some premature mock drafts doing the rounds. Obviously at this incredibly early stage the draft orders are opinion based projections, but it's interesting to see if only to see how other fans are rating the Seahawks heading into 2009. Let me know what you think to this collection of mocks in the comments section, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Walter Cherepinsky thinks the Seahawks will win the NFC West and earn a pick 21st overall. He's not so high on the Broncos however, meaning the Seahawks also own a pick in the top five. He predicts Seattle will take Eric Berry (S, Tennessee) and Jonathan Dwyer (RB, Georgia Tech).
Matt McGuire thinks Denver will end up with the second worst record in the NFL next year, gifting the Seahawks the second overall pick. They take Sam Bradford (QB, Oklahoma) and add Brandon La Fell (WR, LSU) 16th overall as the offense gets an injection of youth.
Draft Tek has given itself a trendy make over during the off season and continues to use sophisticated software to project its mock draft. The Seahawks are picking 8th and 13th overall, grabbing Gerald McCoy (DT, Oklahoma) and Ciron Black (OT, LSU).
Bronco Madness is worth checking out considering Seattle owns one of Denver's first round picks in 2010. They have that pick at #15 where the Seahawks select Jevon Snead (QB, Ole Miss). They add Trevard Lindley (CB, Kentucky) three picks later.
NE Patriots Draft aren't particularly high on Seattle or Denver's prospects for 2009. The consequence? To two top ten picks next year for the Seahawks in their mock. Seattle use the early picks to add a pair of lineman - Bryan Bulaga (OT, Iowa) and Carlos Dunlap (DE, Florida).
NFL Draft Experts have the Seahawks picking at #6 and #15. They take Eric Berry (S, Tennessee) with the pick from Denver and Demarco Murray (RB, Oklahoma) in the mid teens. Both prospects are underclassmen, so won't necessarily declare for the 2010 draft.
DK Sports have the Seahawks making a post season run this year, earning the 25th overall pick. Paired with the 11th overall pick from Denver, they take Eric Berry (a popular pick for the Seahawks so far) and C.J. Spiller (RB, Clemson). Spiller is one of my 'ten for 2010' to keep an eye on this year.
Draft Zoo projects the Seahawks to be picking at #11 and #24. I've saved the best till last, because personally I think this mock offers the best overall judgement considering the early stage in proceedings. I like the look of the top ten picks in particular, although so much can change between now and next April. Seattle take Sam Bradford (QB, Oklahoma) and C.J. Spiller (RB, Clemson).
