Imagine the scene... we're 12 months down the line. We've analysed the 2011 draft prospects, we've been through a couple dozen mock drafts. We're in New York waiting for the first overall pick to be announced and Roger Goodell utters the words: "With the first overall pick, the Seattle Seahawks select..."
Walter Cherepinsky updated his 2011 mock draft today (never too early) and he has the Seahawks picking first overall. This coincides with his pre-draft power rankings which have Seattle ranked 32nd (that sounds better than 'last').
"I ranked the Seahawks 29th in my previous update. Since then, they lost Patrick Kerney to retirement and Rob Sims in a trade with the Lions. Unless Clipboard Jesus is capable of performing miracles, Seattle is the worst team in the NFL. Aside from the linebackers and tight ends, the Seahawks are hurting at every single position." - Walter Cherepinsky
No prizes for guessing who the Seahawks select with the first overall pick in Walter's mock.
