The Seahawks have accumulated a number of mid/late round picks this off season. As the new regime makes their changes, they now own two fourth round picks (#102 and #127) two fifth round picks (#133 and #139) a sixth round pick (#176) and a seventh (#245). The only pick they're unable to use in a trade is the seventh rounder as it's a compensatory selection. The rest are fair game.
When the Seahawks dropped twenty places in round two via the Whitehurst deal, they didn't do so lightly. They understood that there were prospects they probably liked at #40 that wouldn't be available at #60. Alternatively, they may feel the depth of talent was sufficient this year that a move down was more palatable. However, should a prospect be sitting there in round two that they simply have to get - they have the ammunition to make a move. This has been discussed amongst the front office and is a strong possibility if the right guy is on the board.
Who may we be talking about here? Look no further than the running back position. I'm led to believe the Seahawks are high on California's Jahvid Best. Serious concussions have dropped Best's stock somewhat, but it wouldn't be a total shock if he found a home at the back end of round one. He's explosive enough to justify that, especially on a good team. At the same time - teams may be wary of drafting someone with serious health concerns.
In my last mock draft, I had the Seahawks taking Best at #60. Is it realistic? Possibly, depending on what else happens earlier on. If the New York Giants - a legitimate landing spot for Best - draft C.J. Spiller in the first round, it takes them out of contention. If San Diego drafts Ryan Mathews either at the bottom of round one or with the pick at #40 acquired from Seattle, will the Houston Texans look for a size back like Ben Tate in round two instead of Best (they already have a smaller back in Steve Slaton)? There are possibilities that could see Best fall and there are reasons why he'll go much higher.
If he's there in round two, the Seahawks might not chance him lasting until #60. A move involving one or both fourth round picks is possible. If Seattle is able to deal the #14 pick, they may possibly acquire another 2010 second rounder which would potentially relieve the need to move up. Either way, if the Seahawks keep the #60 pick names to keep an eye on include Geno Atkins (DT, Georgia), Lamarr Houston (DT, Texas) and Mardy Gilyard (WR, Cincinnati). But from what I understand, Best is a potential target and the Seahawks could consider a move up to get him.
