  • I gave up discussing their picks a while ago.

    we needed oline and WR and we got them.

  • Holmgren just said on KJR that if your o-line coach likes the guy, forget about what all the projections are as to where he will/should go in the draft. He thinks this is a Cable pick.

  • Can't say I ever heard of this guy but my gut tells me he's the best OL we've drafted since okung.

    Cable liked Carp & Moffitt as well. Hopefully he gets it right this time.

    Ugghhh.....I liked the pick until you said that.

    I think the Hawks should erase the names of people cable likes. Do the opposite of what he suggests and it should work out better.

    Oh well, im gonna hope this was a Schneider pick and not a cable pick.

    Justin Britt is extremely close in athletic profile to Jake Matthews. Nearly identical measurables, right down to arm length.

  • Some Twitter reactions:

    Matthew Fairburn ‏@MatthewFairburn 3m
    Justin Britt was coming off a torn ACL this season. I was down on him preseason, but he got better every week. Could play guard or tackle.


    Brandon Kiley ‏@BKSportsTalk 6m
    Justin Britt dominated Jadeveon Clowney in the South Carolina game. Good player. Better person. #Mizzou (cc: @FieldGulls)


    John Boyle ‏@johnpboyle 4m
    New Seahawk Justin Britt started at LT last year for Missouri, but also played RT. Guessing Seahawks will look at him at tackle and guard.


    Curtis Crabtree ‏@Curtis_Crabtree 3m
    Britt was an AP All-SEC first-team selection last season, starting 14 games for Missouri.


    Seattle Seahawks ‏@Seahawks 21s
    Britt: "I wanted the guys who went up against to remember me. If nasty is the word you want to use then I'm nasty." #SeahawksDraft #Pick64


    Chris ‏@30AcreFortress 7m
    Strengths as a lineman: "Someone who doesn't make mental errors a lot. I'm very aggressive, always been a finisher and key my play off that"


    Danny Kelly ‏@FieldGulls 3m
    Britt. RT @dcrockett17 Also scheme versatile. Played wide split spread in B12 & tighter splits in SEC. MU ran left on most everyone.


    Curtis Crabtree ‏@Curtis_Crabtree 15m
    Cable said it was Britt's tape playing right tackle that stood out to him and gave him the look he wanted.

    Haha...good stuff and my thoughts exactly. We should have traded down, grabbed a 3rd and a 5th, then used one of those picks on Britt. Stoked we went OL, I just think we overspent.

    I had 2 wishes in this draft: 1) OL. 2) Don't let Cable in the war room.

    Must mean he is a great pick, after all NFL.com said even worse about Baldwin, Kearse, etc etc.

  • Never heard of him. Watching the highlights it looks like he's got some good qualities but sometimes looks like the motor runs out too quickly. So...when's our next pick?

    This year or last? I wouldn't put much stock in how someone handled the 2014 version of Clowney. Not to detract from your point...it's certainly better than Britt being dominated by Clowney, but we all know the games Clowney was playing at SC this past year. It saddens me he was rewarded with the 1st overall. It's a new world.

  • No clue who this guy is. I think after this season I'm done trying to look at options for Seattle. They'll take a 4th round rated LB in the 1st next season too. It was the right position but another disappointment, huge reach. And now because I said that, he'll be in the Pro Bowl year 1.

    That could be a good sign, or that could've been the game that Jadeveon took off.

    All sarcasm aside, it looks like the kid is an elite athlete that needs some polish. He could end up backing up Bailey this year, or could end up starting. I like the mean streak, he'll fit in well. The only issue I have is that he seems weak at run blocking.

    I would guess that's the hope, although he's apparently very versatile at G/LT/RT.

    And I wouldn't put too much stock on when and where the Seahawks pick their guys. We should know that by now, and we should also know it works out pretty well. Superstars out of 3rd, 5th, 7th rounders, UDFA's, whatever.

    We go into the draft knowing who we want, and then go get them. We don't care about draft position esteem or how the experts think we should have picked. We know our scheme and get the guys that work.

  • For those that call it a reach: You honestly can't call it a reach unless you have watched his tape and put a grade on him. Do you know where other teams graded him? No. All you know is what you see on some media produced mocks that become increasingly inaccurate as we go deeper into the draft.

    What do you hate about this pick besides your knee jerk reaction based on some half-baked Kiper/McShay mock?

  • Ya know, with Pete and John, I just assume that they see something in a player that other people don't see. They look at some skill or other intangible that their draft picks have and then "Coach 'em up". I think that's the main advantage that our organization has... Look for this or that that Pete and John see, and then hit 'em hard with targeted coaching, targeting their perceived weakness, then concentrate on strengthening that weakness and turning them into a very good or elite player. At least that's the way it has seemed to have gone with our other passed-over draft picks and ignored free agents so far. Anyone else agree with that assessment?
