Seattle’s picks:

6.  Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
Williams is the obvious pick. The Seahawks are able to select one of the more talented prospects in the draft and fill one of their most glaring needs on the offensive line. Williams is an exceptional athlete with outstanding agility and should be a perfect fit in Seattle’s zone-blocking scheme. Alex Gibbs has said before that top-10 talent is not necessary for his blocking scheme, but the Seahawks are desperate and the offensive line was terrible last season. If Williams can stay focused and develop a professional work ethic, he could be the successor to Walter Jones on the left side of Seattle’s offensive line.

14. C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
The Seahawks have an excellent opportunity here to upgrade their defensive line by selecting a player like Derrick Morgan, but C.J. Spiller is too good to pass up at 14th overall. Seattle’s offense lacks a true playmaker or anyone who scares opposing defenses. C.J. Spiller is a real home run threat and is the type of player Pete Carroll loves to have on his football team. Spiller will add a dynamic element to Seattle’s offense and should excite the 12th Man with his big-play ability.

60. Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas
Houston is an athletic interior lineman that brings exceptional pass rushing ability to the defensive tackle position. He will need to strengthen up and prove to be a better force against the run, but he is a hard worker and a smart player which will land him in new head coach Pete Carroll’s good graces.

    I agree that Trent Williams to the Hawks at 6 is an obvious pick. A zone blocking left tackle like Williams is an absolute must.

    I like the Spiller pick at 14. However, I would go to the defensive side of the ball and take Derrick Morgan out of Georgia Tech. We desparately need an impact edge rusher and Morgan would be that guy. C.J. would be next in line on my best players available board and would also fill an obvious need for us.

    Lamarr Houston is a huge reach at #60 overall. Here I would add another playmaker in Wide Receiver Brandon LaFell out of LSU. He is a big physical receiver at almost 6’3″ and 215 pounds has huge hands and can be a reliable target opposite of T.J. Lamarr Houston is a guy that played well at the end of the year but was relatively quite until then. He is a sleeper Boom or Bust type prospect that should o in the 4th to 6th round range.

    Other guys I would consider in this mock at #60 after Brandon LaFell:

    Ricky Sapp 6’4″ 250 DE Clemson
    A bit undersized but has the frame to add on more bulk. Explosive athlete that would be a steal in the 2nd round. We could use like USC used Clay Matthews Jr. under Pete Carroll.

    Jason Worilds 6’1″ 255 DE/OLB Virginia Tech
    Worilds is also undersized but adds great value as an explosive powerfull edge rusher. Built a lot like former Seahawk Darryl Tapp however Worilds is much more of a fluid athlete. He is ideal for a 3/4 team but Pete Carroll believes in getting the best athletes and finding schemes to maximize their abilities.

    Rodger Saffold 6’5″ 315 OT Indiana
    Even with the Trent Williams and Spiller pick I would consider taking a tackle prospect like Saffold. He has experience playing guard and tackle and would help strengthen our horrible offensive line.

    Greg Hardy 6’4″ 280 DE Mississippi
    Again the Seahawks need a pass rusher. Hardy comes with some baggage put is good value at the end of round 2.

    So at #60 overall given the players gone in this mock my Big Board for the Seahawks would be

    1. Brandon LaFell 6’3″ 210 WR LSU
    2. Ricky Sapp 6’4″ 250 DE Clemson
    3. Jason Worilds 6’1″ 255 DE/OLB Virginia Tech
    4. Rodger Saffold 6’5″ 315 OT Indiana
    5. Greg Hardy 6’4″ 280 DE Mississippi

    Rodger Saffold won’t be around at # 60. I’m not even sure he’ll get out of the first round. Given that the Colts are probably going to target a lineman, there is a strong chance he’ll be the BPA at that position when they pick.

    As far as Seattle. Williams or Bulaga are most likely their first pick. The Skins are most likely going to snag Okung, and the Chiefs have already announced they are most likely not going to take Eric Berry. Given the amount of times Matt Cassel hit the dirt last season, they’ll either take Williams or Bulaga. Personally, I hope they take Williams. I know that a lot of people are high on him, but he’s a project tackle at best. Bulaga has the measurables, and a great work ethic. Of course, everyone compares him to Robert Gallery…another Oakland bust. I think that was the team more than the player.

    I just can’t see Seattle taking C.J. Spiller. I think there is a better chance that Pete Carroll is going to take Taylor Mays. With Deon Grant gone, it’s obvious they need a playmaker there, and after Mays the talent thins out fairly quickly. Keep in mind, Joe McKnight, another electric RB might be around at #60 McKnight is rated around 120 as far as talent goes, and 9th at his position. McKnight is just as fast as Spiller, about 5-10 pounds heavier, he can catch and block (need to figure out how to read the blitz a little better though), and Carroll has already coached him. In my opinion, this guy is buried in the draft and he’s a steal at #60.

    As far as value goes, McKnight (based on the measurables) is only slightly less skilled than Spiller. However Major Wright and Kim Chancellor (the available safeties at that pick) aren’t even in the same league as Taylor Mays. If you want to talk about bang for your buck, this is the way I would go.

    I do agree that LaFell would be a possibility, however I think that Carroll might be all set with WRs. I honestly don’t think they would have signed Reggie and Mike if they were going to address a high pick on WR in the draft.
