LIVE: 2010 NFL Draft


By Rob Staton
Welcome to the 2010 NFL Draft. Seahawks Draft Blog has live coverage of the event, so why not join us for instant analysis on every pick? As soon as it happens, we'll be talking about it here. Let me know your thoughts on anything that happens today in the comments section. There's still time to make a prediction or ask a question before the draft begins. Hope to hear from you.

What do you think the odds are of us trading down and taking Tebow or Mays?
I know Tebow isn't rated as a great passer, but I just feel like with his mobility and arm strength he would be exactly the type of guy Bates would want.
The main thing that fascinates me with Mays is that he is so unique, in that he is very big and very fast, that you could talk about having a 4-6 base defense in the future (need a fast FS too to cover whole field) and put him as a 4th linebacker/safety hybrid.
My hopeful draft: trade down a bunch, pick up a few picks next year, and have 3 first rounders this year (tebow, mays, brown). But, just no Spiller and I'm happy. Don't need him, imo.

I'd say the odds are low that Seattle will trade back and take Tebow, but I wouldn't rule it out. Seattle have done their homework shopping that #14, it wouldn't surprise me if a deal is in place already that is dependant on what happens 1-13. What Mays brings is that ability to put eight in the box but also drop deep if needed in coverage. That's when the problems start though.

What are the chances of moving back from 6? The talk has been that we would stay put there, but that talk is a few days old. Any insights or whispers that you've heard?

I think it'll be nearly impossible to trade the #6 pick and I'm not sure the Seahawks even want to. I think they're full prepared to draft someone with that pick - probably Eric Berry if Trent Williams has gone.

wow I thought I wrote a comment but it got lost somehow?!?

I'll sum it up again:
first of all thanks for this blog, best resource for the draft I found. You guys explain things you dont just make statements without backing it up. Whether this is confirmed by todays draft or not does not really matter to me, as this is such a hard thing to predict accurately.

My other point was:
with all those teams trying to trade down, Im not sure we will get a good deal for our picks, if we get one at all. I hope that our staff doesnt trade down for a cheap price, its not every year that you get to pick twice in the top 14, we should not waste this opportunity.

Any suggestions for how a Brit can watch it? I don't have sky.

Rob Staton said...

If you go online (NFL.com) you can watch from 12:30. Can also access through NFL UK website. Apart from that, find someone who has ESPN UK.

do you have espn? it's on espn from 1230. if not does nfl.com have it?

I'd love us to take Clausen. I know you think that's unlikely. What ballpark chance would you give the Hawks of taking him? Also, what's the chance he could be around at 14?

Anthony said...

I'm considering ESPN for next season but I don't have it at the moment. I'll give NFL UK a try, I didn't even know there was a UK site, I've always used NFL.com.

Thanks for that, and the site. I've followed the Hawks for 22 odd years but this is the first draft I've paid a whole lot of attention to, largely due to this site.
