Any WR's you like in this draft?

  • I don't see us keeping Rice and we need a bigger WR, we have enough small shifty ones. I would love to get Mike Evans but I doubt he drops far enough to us.

    If he comes out, I think Kasen Williams in the 3rd round or so would be a GREAT get. He is a Seahawk type of player, extremely physical.

  • If you want the best combination of size, speed, and physicality then Florida St (WR) Kelvin Benjamin is intriguing. He is 6-5 235 lbs, he is only a red-shirt sophomore and has been a bit disappointing so far this year (one of the games I watched of him this year coming out of the huddle he had to ask his freshman QB where to line up). But, if he were to declare he would be available late in the 1st due to his minimal production and maybe maturity issues.



    Someone on here mentioned Penn St Allen Robinson, who has a good comination of size and speed (6-3 210 lbs). Late 1st or 2nd round prospect.



    OR, if you want to go ultra athletic TE that we could just flex out wide most of the time, like Rams TE Jared Cook, then here are a couple of TE's that are freak athletes.

    UNC TE Eric Ebron 6-4 245 lbs, is only a junior but is a 1st round athlete. Great speed for his size and very good body control.


    And of course Oregon TE Colt Lyerla 6-5 250 lbs, is only a junior who is currently in the new head coach's dog house. Freak athlete, who is ultra competive and very physical with the ball in his hands. Lines up all over the field. He needs to go to the right team that can coddle him a bit, and the Seahawks are a very secure tight team that would be his best landing spot in the NFL.



    Small school mini playmaker is Kent St Dri Archer. He is only 5-8 178 lbs, but he is a playmaking stud. He could be compared to KC do everything Dexter McLuster or Rams WR Tavon Austin. Archer would instantly be the fastest player on our roster, yes faster than Harvin.



    There are a handful of other mid-round prospects that I like, but I don't know how much a mid-round WR would be able to contribute on our team next year.

  • Kasen Williams. Should he declare (I hope he don't). Kasen would complement Harvin ridiculously well and block his ass off for him, too. Cut Rice, pay Tate and draft Kasen.

    Think about that group of receivers for a minute: Harvin, Tate, Kearse, Baldwin and Williams. Redundant? Not the way this team uses receivers. All high energy guys with sure hands, willing to get dirty. What's not to love?

    Baldwin is a free agent after this year and I don't see us re-signing him. No Baldwin and no Rice. Kasen is a nice player and fits the size and toughness that coach Carroll likes, but Kasen is just a possession WR. He is not explosive, and I personally would like to get more speed along with some toughness. It really just matters what attributes do you want to add to our WR core next year.

    You may be right, but I think Baldwin will be retained. There's teams looking at him, I'm certain, but how much more will they be willing to pay and will that additional money be enough to pull him away from Seattle and RW? If the answer is yes...I'd just as soon have Kasen Williams. He too makes the beautiful sideline catches and while not a burner, will present more of a threat than DB. Plus...he's the blocker we need to get the most out of Percy Harvin, IMO. Kasen is taking pride in his blocking and that is becoming a rarity, even though at the same time that facet is becoming a necessity.

    Anyone have an opinion on what rd Kasen would likely go? My emotional attachment to the guy prevents me from forming an honest opinion. I'm thinking 4th and that is what I am basing this desire to draft him on. IF we could get Kasen for 4th rd money, I'd be less concerned about DB exiting.

  • Odell Beckham is my favorite target. Has awesome speed, big hands, natural separation skills. I think he's a better version of Deandre Hopkins, as he's faster and I think his game translates really well/quickly.

    Regarding Kasen; I think he's going to have to put on weight and become an H back. He's really slow and I can't see him being able to separate from NFL DBs. Could be a monster as a Marcel Reese type though. He's a good college WR, but man I can't get over the lack of explosion. I think he's a mid rounder (Mohammed Sanu type).

    Not arguing because speed is somewhat subjective (there's fast and then there's quick) but 4.5 at 220 isn't exactly slow. What I like most about Kasen (along with LSU, Oklahoma, U-dub and Florida) is he's one of the best athletes in the country. You can't have enough guys like that on a football field, IMO.

  • Agreed. I'm not sure how he doesn't get more publicity. Despite not having the prototypical #1 WR body type, I think he's a legit #1 NFL WR. He still has good size and a really explosive second gear in his breaks/routes. I honestly see a more explosive Deandre Hopkins with top notch return ability. If Kendall Wright can go in the mid 1st round, not sure why Beckham can't be a top 20 pick.

    He's not AJ Green or Julio Jones, but I think he can be a good player on Day 1. I'd love to see Seattle cut bait with Rice next year and target Beckham. Great bloodlines too.

    You know much about his "perceived character"?

    I don't think that is as definitive as you seem to think. I like Baldwin, but I don't see us paying two slot WR's, the other being Harvin, when we are not a spread offense (4 WR sets). There seem to be a number of people that think Tate is our best WR and is a must re-sign after this season. Maybe Kearse could be thought of as potentially our best WR if given more playing time.

  • There are a lot of good WRs in this pool. Getting quality even in the late second round shouldn't be hard.

    In particular, there are a lot of bigger (6'2"+) wrs crowding the list. Very good outside receiver talent. Lots of versatile talent with special teams quality too.

    We could see 8-9 WRs go in the first two rounds. Even without a marquee headliner.

    For all of his really incredible athletic prowess, there seems to be a suddenness missing from Kasen's game. He's going to have to become an extremely high level route runner to succeed at the next level.

    I'd be interested to hear what English thinks of Kevin Smith. I didn't realize he was only 5'11 because he plays much bigger, but I failed to find a successful NFL received at a similar height/weight combo.

    Paul Richardson is good BUT he drops a lot of balls.. No thanks.

  • Watkins and Evans for me but those are probably the 1 and 2 WR off the board. Mathews could be in the Seattle range, I haven't watched too many WR other than these 3 so far.

    Looking around perhaps L'Damian Washington? Kind of light for a tall guy.

    This is true, but so did Kearse. He's also a lot better than last years 4th round pick Chris Harper, and I'm guessing that where he'll go.

    As for Lee and Watkins, I doubt either are on the board when we pick. People will know Lee played with hot mess QBs all year, and was a victim of the Kiffin mess.

  • Something isn't right with Coleman. He's running on his heels and has almost no explosion off the line. He looks like he's on bum ankles really. He doesn't look like he did last year.

    Statistically, he's not going to light a fire. Gary Nova is complete trash as a QB. There are wildcat qbs with better throwing skills. Coleman will underwhelm the casual fan who doesn't watch the games.

    I realized I never offered an answer to the OPs question. I noted them on SDB so I'll copy them here too. In particular, these are day 2 alternatives to the first round hype prospects that not all of us may know:

    Allen Robinson 6’3″
    Dante Moncrief 6’2″
    DeVonte Parker 6’2″
    Devin Street 6’3″
    Alex Amidon 5'11"

    I like Robinson and Moncrief, although Moncrief has dropped some passes the few games I watched of him. Parker is just a possession WR and I wouldn't take him in the first two rounds. I'm undecided on Street, and I don't want a 5'11'' in the first couple rounds unless its LSU (WR) Odell Beckham.

    I'd invite you to look up some Amidon tape. He's a day 3 prospect who I offered as an alternative to spending a first round pick on Beckham. There are elements to his game that are very good. Last year, he had more drops than I'd like, but he seems to have improved this year considerably. His burst out of his stance, and his ability to stop/redirect on a dime is impressive. As is his ability to work through press coverage. He is a 6-8 catch per game guy and his quickness really just jumps out at you when you watch his tape.

    I'd eye him if Seattle opts to not tender Baldwin. That price last year for a 2nd round qualifying offer was a shade over 2m/yr. That's due to the fact that as a UDFA, we don't have the 1m/yr option the secure first refusal rights for original draft selection. He will command starter slot money on the open market. Which for other teams will be palatable and even a good value. You can bet that Jacksonville will take him and probably for over 2m/yr.

    Seattle already has a starter slot receiver (Harvin). Baldwin will be a 4th string guy here. Your salary structure begins to unfold when you start paying deep bench players that kind of money. What's more, is that we aren't a heavy passing team. It doesn't make sense to commit 20%+ of your cap to WRs, when you pass less than you run.

    Amidon would be a 500k/yr successor with 4 years of club control. Baldwin is a guy we all love. But despite that, resigning him is going to be really tough. Even tendering him will be tough. Your 2nd string slot receiver needs to be a cheap contract. We all knew this day would come where we have to let good/productive players go and plow under their positions with cheaper rookies with club control. Amidon is a candidate to do just that.

    I just took a look at his game vs. Wake Forrest last year. I personally have a bit of a hard time judging the speed or quickness of WR's especially on youtube clips. That said, his quickness off the line does look good I just can't tell if its elite or just good. I also couldn't really tell if he has deep speed to take the cover off a defense, but with slot WR's I'm not too concerned with deep speed. He looked good at finding soft spots in the defense, quick feet to get in and out of breaks. He had a few drops in the game and I didn't see the body control to adjust to errant balls. I think have I a BC game on my DVR from last week or the week before, so I'll go back and try to get a better look at him.

    I have really only been scouting bigger WR's even scouting underclassmen who are unlikely to declare for the draft. I wanted to compare Amidon to a player similer in size and also a mid-round prospect so I took a look at Oregon St WR Brandin Cooks. In the game vs Colorado Cooks played outside a lot and not too much in the slot. Cooks showed quickness, good speed, quick feet and an ability to sink his hips to get in and out of his breaks. He showed nice body control to get errant balls, but nothing special. He took a couple of good hits so he may have the toughness you would want in a slot WR. Going off one game tape of each player I would rate Cooks maybe two rounds ahead of Amidon, but one tape on each player really isn't fair.

    Since we are taking smaller WR's, what are your thoughts on Cooks? And what is your opinion of Kent St RB/WR/KR Dri Archer? Archer is the same height, weight, and on the field speed as Rams WR Tavon Austin minus the experience of actually playing WR. Archer is coming off an injury, but he is healthy now hence his 90+ yard kick return for a TD last week. Archer could be the KR/PR and possibly be the 4th WR.

    Here is Cooks vs. Colorado.


    Here is Archer's highligns from 2012, the level of competition is the greatest until you see him running away from SEC Kentuky players.


    If given the option of,
    A) selecting Cooks in the 3rd round (this scenario we accuire a 3rd round pick)
    B) selecting Amidon in the 4th round
    or
    C) selecting Archer in the 4th round

    Which would you choose?

  • Archer to me looks like just a guy. Someone that maybe makes the tail end of a roster but probably just sits on a PS somewhere.

    I love Cooks. First and foremost, he has explosive legs. He has an ability to make everyone around him look like they are slow. The second thing that jumps out, is he has terrific hands. I'd go so far as to say he has the best hands in CFB. He makes great catches. He makes easy catches. He catches them clean in the hands. He has great awareness of the sidelines and works them expertly. He high points balls, undercuts defenders to get underthrown balls. His combination of sublime hands, ball tracking ability and ability to alter routes to gain positional advantage while the ball is in the air is incredibly advanced. He's leading college football in almost all stats for a legitimate reason. Of any prospect in the draft, I would say that Cooks is an actual upgrade from Baldwin in terms of ball skills at this point already. And I love Baldwin's catching skills. Cooks catches the ball cleaner and has a similar ability to Baldwin to working in limited or contested space.

    He's not exactly long limbed. But he has very good body control and acceleration that gives him a very good effective catch radius.

    He doesn't explode out of his stance. He false steps almost every release. For a slot guy, he has to clean that up right now. Watch his tape versus Amidon to appreciate the difference. Amidon looks like he's almost full speed within a yard of the LOS. Cooks, like his team mate from last year Wheaton, is a very good hand fighter and gets free of press coverage very very well.

    Honestly, he has outside WR skills in a slot receiver body. He needs to improve on his quickness and his initial burst off the line. If he can do that, I'd put him as the best slot receiver in the draft. I am not prone to citing pedigree, as I think all prospects should be looked at independent of outside factors, but OSU does an outstanding job of teaching WR techniques and skills. Either that or they just have a great eye for talent at the HS level which I kind of doubt. Cooks demonstrates excellent ball skills, release technique and positional awareness.

    Cooks should go before Amidon. I can't make that kind of determination of who I'd take, because it would mean not taking someone else in Cooks' spot. Maybe we need an OL candidate? Is a 4th/5th round OT going to be a better tackle than Amidon is a WR? I like Cooks better but I don't know if I like how the depth stacks up later in the draft. Remember, whether it's Cooks or someone else, they are still the backup slot receiver at best. I'd rather have a lesser 2nd slot guy and a starting OT than a better 2nd slot guy and not get an upgrade elsewhere. I suspect that Cable is going to get that day 2 OL prospect he wanted last year. Maybe more than one. Needs could get in the way of getting the better prospect.

  • Let me throw this name out there. Sammy Watkins Clemson 6'1" 205 jr. WHY? I expect him to come early in the 2014 draft. He reminds me alot of GoldenTate but with more speed. Just go watch his highlight reels and you'll see. Awesome returner too. cheers :179422:

  • Baldwin is only going to ask for 4 or 5 million I see no reason why we couldn't keep him. I don't see a need at WR but maybe we use one pick on one. If it turns out we can't keep miller I'd draft a TE, draft 2 offensive lineman, a safety, a DT, and a pass rushing project

    We have soo many players that we need to re-sign and we are not going to have the money to sign all the players we like.

    2014 Seahawks key unrestricted free agents or restrincted free agents:
    (DE/DT) Michael Bennett UFA: Bennett is a must re-sign IMO.
    (CB) Brandon Browner UFA: Browner seems to be a polarizing player amongst Seahawks fans, IMO he is a must re-sign.
    (WR) Golden Tate UFA: Tate IMO is a must re-sign. I never thought I would say that, I didn't think his game would translate to the NFL.

    2015 Seahawks key unrestricted or restricted free agents:
    (DE) Cliff Avril UFA: IMO cut him after this year. Nice player, but he is no Chris Clemmons.
    (CB) Richard Sherman UFA: Must re-sign. IMO he is the best defensive player not named JJ Watt.
    (FS) Earl Thomas UFA: Must re-sign. His range and ball skill are elite and by careers end will be up there with the all-time great FS Ronnie Lott and Ed Reed.
    (LB) K.J. Wright UFA: I would like to re-sign. If I'm re-signing Sherman, Thomas, Tate, Bennett, and Browner then I don't know if Wright or Baldwin would fit in the our cap.

    Who? He must have gone under the radar! :sarcasm_on:

    Come on man, we have no shot, he's graded as the #1 WR on a bunch of sites.


    Looking at replacements for Rice, I like Allen Robinson, though if he really is 6,3" he looks a bit bulkier than the 205-210 advertised. He's probably 6,2", not that it matters.

  • If Jordan Matthews falls to us, I don't know how we could pass on him. Watching UGA/Vandy right now and he is just a playmaker. I'd would be very happy if that's our 1st rd pick.

  • Besides Washington, his teammate Marcus Lucas seems like a tall big body WR that we lack (6-5 220). Both I haven't heard much talk about nationally yet so maybe late round flier types that could be red zone threats, they are both seniors so they will be available next draft.

    Watching the Mizzou Florida game, really like Washington! Plus, who's Michael Sam???? Seen him down as a late round pick in a bunch of mocks but the guy looks like an NFL player. 8 sacks on the year and 2 today?

  • (1) Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M, 6-5, 225.
    Current season he has 32 receptions for 737 yds, 5-td's. = 23.03-yds. per catch
    Career 114 for 1842 and 10-td.s. = 16.15-yds per catch.

    (2) Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State, 6-2, 212.
    Current season he has 52 receptions for 496 yds, 7-td's = 9.53-yds per catch.
    Career: 154 for 1808-yds and **21-td's** = 11.74-yds per catch.

    This is true, but so did Kearse. He's also a lot better than last years 4th round pick Chris Harper, and I'm guessing that where he'll go.

    As for Lee and Watkins, I doubt either are on the board when we pick. People will know Lee played with hot mess QBs all year, and was a victim of the Kiffin mess.

    Marqise has a ton of talent. He still needs to improve his route running and he's had drop issues this year. He's struggled at times now that he doesn't have Woods on the other side.

    Having said that, he's also not been anywhere near 100% healthy yet, and the offense in general has struggled prior to last week.

    'Quise may get some play time today, though he's still coming off injury. I'd actually prefer he wait if possible and get healed up.

    Washington is the better pro prospect with his speed. Both have inconsistent hands but obviously good size. Late round picks for sure.

    Michael Sam has a crazy motor and just makes plays. Just a matter of time before he shoots up draft boards. The future first round pick plays on the other side of the line, Kony Ealy.

  • Love Evans from A&M. I think we may look for a TE/WR hybrid and think he would fit the bill.

    My guess is Sidney and Zach restructure, Baldwin takes just under 3 million a year for 5 years and Tate signs for 5 million a year. Golden loves this team, and even though he could get more elsewhere, he will give a home town discount. Baldwin will want the security of a long term contract and both will probably have incentives in their contracts.

    I still can't believe the idiocy of Belicheck refusing to pay Welker 7 but he ponies up 6 for Amendola. That move will be the difference in the Patriots watching the Super Bowl and the Broncos playing in it.

    My guess is Pete would love to keep his current stable of wide receivers and add a strong, blocking TE to help the offensive line. Unlike others, i think we are in good shape on the Oline with the additions of Bailey and Bowie and i could see both starting next year. Bowie at RT and Bailey at LG.

    Sorry, got off track a bit was explaining my reasoning for a TE/WR hybrid.

  • Mike Evans, that guy from Clemson, Marquise Lee, Brandon Coleman, and those are just the guys that were on the pre-season watch list. Loaded year at WR. I'd take a flier on Abbrederis from Wisconsin in the 4th if he's there, and if Smith from UW (#8) sneaks into the late rounds, he could be a huge bargain for some team. I'd much rather have Smith than Kasen Williams, though with Williams you get the feeling that he has a ton of untapped potential, something PC/JS value highly.

  • Brandin Cooks from OSU. Best WR in the country. I don't know if he'll ever be a number 1 WR in the NFL, but he'll kill people from the slot.

    Another 13 catches for 232 yards tonight.

  • How about Cody Hoffman (BYU, 6,3" 215)? I know we haven't seen him much this year but if he could be had on the third day as some sites suggest then I'd love us to take a look. Doesn't seem to have electric speed, but consistently gets open, looks to have reliable hands and some after the catch ability.



    I also put it up to try and get the opinion of SharkHawk. What happened to him? Miss his season updates on all things Utah and BYU.

    I concur. He's a really special looking player. Not tall at all, but a really uniquely gifted WR. He is well put together too, reminds one of Steve Smith (the good one). He has marvelous ball skills. He will be a day 1 starter for some team.

    The 25-60 pick range should have a lot of really good WR prospects. Guys I would rate higher than Tate when he came out.
