I'll be updating my mock draft again tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, here's a collection of mocks from around the web:
Walter Cherepinsky continues to predict the Detroit Lions will take Russell Okung second overall. I still maintain I don't think this has any chance of happening. I don't rate Okung as highly as others and whether right or wrong - Detroit appear to like Jeff Backus. I would be surprised if the Lions don't pick between Suh and McCoy.
Pat Kirwan posts an updated mock and he matches my latest projection by giving the Seahawks C.J. Spiller at #6 and Derrick Morgan at #14. It's worth keeping an eye on Kirwan's mocks. He's well sourced and is very close to Pete Carroll. It doesn't mean he's getting fed information on who the Seahawks take, but he knows Seattle's Head Coach better than most people.
Chad Reuter puts Okung at #6 and Spiller at #14. I'm not a fan of Okung's, that's well advertised on this blog. If I was making a big board, he'd get a late first round grade. We'll see where he goes on April 22nd.
Evan Silva has the Seahawks grabbing Bryan Bulaga (6th overall) and Joe Haden (14th overall). Bulaga's a difficult one to judge. When watching him, I saw a solid but unspectacular prospect. I don't think he'll match up too well against top speed rushers, but then few actually do. This would be a solid, not flashy, double pick for the Seahawks.
Sideline Scouting has the 'Hawks taking Eric Berry with the 6th overall pick and Bruce Campbell at #14. I'll be surprised if the Seahawks take Campbell, he just doesn't seem like an obvious fit in the Alex Gibbs scheme which relies on smarts and less on physical qualities. There's a need at safety, but with an impotent offense and a poor defensive line - can you justify a big investment at that position? I've never been truly convinced Berry warrants a top ten pick anyway.
