I wouldn't get too excited by the title because the chances of Ndamukong Suh returning to the North West (he's originally from Oregon) are limited to none. I am 100% sure that the worst case scenario for Suh will be going third overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - and that's only if Detroit prefer Gerald McCoy.
Bucky Brooks from the NFL Network publishes his latest mock draft today and he sends Suh to the Seahawks. It won't happen. You're probably bored of me saying Russell Okung won't go second overall, but I am completely convinced that will not happen. For arguments sake, let's say this does happen and the Buccs do take Gerald McCoy third overall. Ndamukong Suh's best position might actually be as a five technique in the 3-4 system. He has all the qualities you want for that roke and it might actually suit him more than lining up as a three technique in the 4-3. I think it'd be a major stretch to watch the two 3-4 teams (Kansas City and now Washington) passing on Suh - regardless of needs elsewhere.
Let me quote Mike Mayock for you on this subject:
"The fact that you (Charles Davis) and Bucky both have Okung going #2 to Detroit tells me it's got no shot at happening (said only half jokingly). I'll tell you now Bucky, if Suh gets to #6 I'll come out and coach your Notre Dame high school defensive backs at 6am because that aint happening. Here's the deal: at #2 I don't see Detroit passing on value. Suh is way too good to pass on at that point. There's no way at #4 or #5 Washington or Kansas City pass him up. He can't get to #6." - Mike Mayock
I completely agree with Mayock. There's no chance Ndamukong Suh gets to #6. It's almost just as impossible for McCoy to last until #6. In my opinion, the Seahawks probably won't be drafting one of those two stud defensive tackles and will have to look elsewhere. A nice thought, but an unlikely eventuality.
