By now you’ve probably read a dozen or more mock Seahawks drafts. Hopefully, none is as bad as this extremely suspect first-round choice I found.
Everyone loves a good mock draft, right, 12s? Of course, that word “good” is the key. We’ve seen some pretty good mock drafts for the Seahawks – and a few too many with no trades – but I’ve just come across some amazing headscratchers. It’s true that no one knows what Seattle will do in the draft, but it really looks like some folks have absolutely no clue.
I’ve been adamant that the Seahawks will move down from their current 21st pick all along. A number of much smarter writers, such as Bob Condotta, have the same view. Now you can feel a bit more secure. As Mr. Condotta wrote a few weeks ago in The Seattle Times,
"The Seahawks are likely to try to acquire more picks, and could well do so by trading down or out of the first round, as they have often done since Pete Carroll and John Schneider took over in 2010. That means that the most accurate mock draft for Seattle is one that trades the pick away somewhere."
Condotta then breaks down a series of first-round predictions from various sources. As he says, it’s worth seeing who would be available if Seattle shocks everyone and stays with their pick. I seem to recall someone writing there was no way the Seahawks would draft a running back in the first round last year. Shows what I know.
