2013 NFL Mock Draft The Seattle Seahawks Select...

I told you think was going to become a weekly feature for Tuesdays, did I not? This week, we’ll take a look at this draft which is featured currently on Fansided.com.

This draft, like many others, has the Seahawks taking a WR. I like the idea of the Seahawks taking a WR early, but I don’t think it’ll happen. Do the Seahawks need an early round WR to improve the offense? Yes, I think they do. But I also think that Pete Carroll loves his defense, and will use the first round pick on a DT.

Lets get to the pick:

23. Seattle Seahawks – Keenan Allen – WR/California

Seattle is one of those teams on the cusp and is in what is shaping up to be the next great division in the NFC. But if they want to compete they need a true No. 1 receiver and that’s Keenan Allen. He’s tall, he’s productive and the only reason his stock isn’t higher is because he’s on an awful team. But if he can put up big numbers on a bad Cal team, Seahawks fans (and Russell Wilson) will love him in Seattle.

If this actually happens I will be seen doing backflips for a month. Getting Allen, at this point in the draft, would be such a draft steal that I can’t even describe it. Allen is the best WR in the draft. Period. He’s a true #1 receiver.

Getting a guy like Allen would mean amazing things to the Seahawks. Teams could no longer stack the line to stop Lynch. Sydney Rice would almost never see a double team. Wilson would have a guy who would be open on almost every play. Even the TE would be better, since they’d be covered by LBs more (and safeties less) since the S would be needed to double team Allen.

But alas, it wont happen. Allen dropping outside the top 10 isn’t likely. Dropping outside the top 20 would be a complete miracle.

    dropping all the way to 32 would be impossible.

    Don’t forget John Schneider will probably trade down to acquire more draft picks. He has stated he wants a minimum of 10 picks a year. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if we continue to trade all the way back into the second round this year.

      Not sure that happens again this season. They already have 9 picks. The 10th can be acquired by trading down in the 4th or 5th and getting an extra 6th or 7th.

    Disagree. If Hawks are going to take a WR early there gonna take a guy with elite speed like Patterson from Tennessee or Tavon Austin from West Virginia. They need a guy that can stretch the field and be a playmaker. I think Allen will be a solid receiver he just lacks top speed

    I still believe and A LOT OF PEOPLE will completely disagree with me but seattle needs to take a DT like kawann short hes big hes disruptive he can get to the passer he can play DT or DE HE WOULD ESPECIALLY excel at the 4-3 hybrid defense pete carroll has in and fill in very nicely for red bryant or alan branch seattle is not getting what they wanted out of Red Bryant and I believe seattle will either use extra draft picks in the 3rd 4th and 5th rounds to target receivers and finding a DT and guard or tackle in the 1st and 2nd rounds john schiender has found talent at almost every position in almost every round why not a receiver this time? they struck silver with doug baldwin who is a solid #2 or #3 but I guarantee they can find someone elite in later rounds they did it with richard sherman kam chancellor and others

    If they are down below 21( which it looks like they will be) I doubt they take a 1st rd. receiver. I agree it will be 2nd through 4th somewhere . They need LB help, for the underneath D in pass coverage ( and that’s ALL OF THEM BUT MAYBE wAGNER ,HE’S IMPROVING and includes SS Chancellor) is their biggest weak point right now!
