Another Tuesday, another mock draft pick to consider. This one is from the mind of Josh Sanchez and is posted on Fansided.com.
It seems that the only thing I’m seeing mocked to the Seahawks in the 1st round these days are WR and LB. The WR mocks make the most sense (LB certainly doesn’t), but I believe that the biggest need the Seahawks have is at DT. We’ll see, part of it is that there has to be a suitable talent at the point that the Seahawks pick.
You should also notice that in this mock they have the Seahawks picking at #26, meaning they have the Seahawks winning a playoff game. I like that prediction.
26. Seattle Seahawks – Terrance Williams, Wide Receiver, Baylor
Williams brings the size and speed to be a number one receiver at the next level. With Russell Wilson going above and beyond the expectations, it is time to surround the young signal-caller with talent.
I like this pick. Keenan Allen was off the board already so there’s no reason to question why the Seahawks might pass over the best receiver in the draft. The question then comes as to which receiver is #2. Williams is definitely a candidate for that designation, though he isn’t #2 on my board.
I’m not going to complain though. At least it isn’t Tavon Austin from West Virgina. I’ve seen way too many mocks with him going in the first round. He’s got serious speed, but he’s 5-8. If Austin ends up as more than just a kick returner in the NFL I’ll be surprised.
Williams isn’t nearly as fast, but he’s got good hands and runs good routes for a WR of his size and speed. He’s the type of player that could really make a difference in this offense.
