Pick #64, 2nd Round: OT Justin Britt, Missouri

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! RATING: PG-13
  • All I know is that I was hoping they would address WR and OL this draft. They are doiing that, so this fan is happy. The specific players, where they are ranked and value... all that... It's easy to just not fret and leave that up to this FO. Maybe we get another Carp or Moffitt or maybe we have a couple young bookend tackles for a long time now. At this point I hope they get a good guard also... protecting Russ and keeping that ground game top of the league should be top priority imo.

  • Fing NFL network, goes to commercial when the Hawks draft then come back and skim over the pick. Watched the link above, sounds like he has a bit of just nasty to his general attitude....Perfect. Dude is big, really big and his slow deliberate speech assures me that he just doesn't give a rats ass what any D lineman thinks. We need more dirtbag O lineman. The guy mentioned playing through the end of the whistle also and one of the videos show that he did.
    Have to admit it's been tough watching the draft as the Hawks keep trading down. Hard to get better when you don't make a pick. NOW is the time that PC / JS do the damage, hopefully the NFLY network doesn't show commercials every time they pick......AGAIN.

  • I've barely watched this guy at all, but he seems like Breno with less power and lighter feet.

    I need to watch more, but I am okay with this pick.

    Also, ESPN needs to be slapped for acting like this pick never happened.

    They did last year. They cut to commercial on every pick of the hawks. Then glossed over the pick with some quick words. Nothing new.

  • Here's your answer to what they drafted him to do:

    John Boyle ‏@johnpboyle 38s
    Tom Cable said Justin Britt will compete with Michael Bowie at RT, but can also play both guard spots. #Seahawks


    Kevin Shockey ‏@KevinShockey 9m
    "He'll start from day one when he gets here, competing with Bowie for the RT job." Tom Cable on @JustinBritt68

    Exactly.

    What bothers me is people continue to use the Carpenter/Moffitt arguments as if means something to Cable. And every single time I ask those people in the 2011, what linemen should we have drafted instead that would have done better instead.

    Is it Cable's fault, that a lock-out plus 2 serious knee injuries derailed Carpenter's career?

    Is it Cable's fault, that Moffitt's heart wasn't seriously into football and wasn't as tough as he looked at Wisconsin? Cable gave him every opportunity to earn his position and he got out played by Sweezy.

    But again ALL YOU HATERS look at the 2011 Draft and tell me what O-Linemen should the Seahawks have drafted because in retrospect that year for O-Linemen is probably the worst I've seen since following the drafts. Just downright poor talent but we needed O-Line in 2011 in the worst way.

    Jokes aside, Kiper and McShay know much more than any of us. Believe it. So does Mayock, who had Britt slated for the 5th rd. Aside from our FO, who do you suggest we listen to? I am not being sarcastic.

    It may very well be as difficult and unpredictable as picking a perfect March Madness bracket.

    There are quite a few who would argue with that statement, including those who have seen their track records. Seriously, Bobo the trained chimp flinging poo at a dart board has a better history of good picks than Kiper.

    I'm not worried about what any of them say.

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?

    Actually, that's exactly the opposite of what Pete and John say their approach is. They target and concentrate on what a player's strengths are, and do what they can to maximize them, and don't put them in a situation where their weaknesses are exposed.

    Yeah but they have little to no insight into how they fot into Seattle's system.

    Unfortunately, only the FO has reasonable insight into their plans for a player and how they rated them.

    Mayock immediately after his comment said: "They clearly know more than I do" - giving due deference to the Super Bowl champions.

    To the people here who seem unable to grasp this one simple fact: the Seahawks DO NOT draft players they think will be good on any team. They draft players who will be good on ours. In the meantime, the talking heads don't understand what makes Seattle tick.

    Furthermore if you complain about this 5th round crap, you forget one major thing: This FO is crazy like a fox. Remember when they waited to draft Russell Wilson in the 3rd round, even though Schneider would've done it in the first and second? They know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. If the grabbed this guy at 64, it's because they knew he'd be gone. End of.

  • Their next pick was a long ways off so if this is their guy, I am good with it. Once they traded down I knew we would end up with someone I didnt know on OL. But I am ignorant of a lot of what many college teams have to offer us.

    He look like he had a ruff game in this one.

    I like that they address one of our needs with the pick hopefully they can coach him up.

    After watching it about 10 times he did have some good blocks in the game though. He tends to get off balance sometimes and got lit up. He will be playing the rt or guard instead of lt so that is a plus. Well see how it goes I guess. Im going to watch some more film on the guy. Ruff start for brother Britt in this one tho.

  • The Hawks needed help on the line, even if Bowie and Bailey pan out the depth we had with Breno and McQ is gone. I was more concerned about the Breno loss and I think the Hawks used the latest pick they could on the guy they wanted.

  • It's certainly an odd pick and EVERY 'analyst' will surely give us a 'D' rating for it but this year as Super Bowl Champs I'm just going to sit back and trust our coaching crew.

    For perspective go back to the 2012 draft and check out our overall draft grades. The best I saw was a 'C' for Irvin/Wilson and many with D/F grades for us overall.

  • That Georgia game is embarrassing. I wouldn't agree that Britt dominated Clowney, but he did a much better job with Clowney than he did vs Georgia. He doesn't do a very good job playing to the whistle, but I suspect Cable will fix that in short order. Britt has surprisingly good feet for 325lbs, but at the same time he will really need to learn how to handle a bull rush, because he gave ground way too easily.

    Kind of a puzzling pick. But we've seen Cable do more with less, so we'll have to see it play out.

  • Who care if he shut out Clowney? Clowney had 3 sacks last year. A lot of guys shut out Clowney.

    I don't hate the pick, and I don't like it. He is a right tackle, like Carp, who can play guard if he busts at RT. Like Carp. He is already a better LT than McQ, but who isn't?

    My biggest issue, though, is he played from a 2 point stance in a spread. He has a lot to learn.

    I'm beginning to wonder if you have watched or listened to 30+ years of drafts? You can only "coach" so much, the player has to have a solid base to begin with. Can you honestly say you have watched any film of the first two Hawks drafts picks prior to the Hawks drafting them? I say your a liar if you say yes. We are not PC/JS but they have swung and missed on draft picks just like the 31 other teams. Round 3 - 5 are where this duo have proven to make the difference, 2015 will be the crucible.

    As I said before, this draft means nothing as this duo provided us with our first Lombardi. This is etched in stone and I and my family will forever be grateful for it.

    This is this year though. View it with open eyes, things can change quickly.

  • good pick in my book....45-0 state wrestling champ says he is a competitor to me and I like what I am learning about the guy so far. Cable knows his picks and John Schneider is the Jedi draft master. I am good having these two picks in...now give me an under the radar, awesome DE pick, a late round tall receiver and DeAnthony Thomas for punt returns and I am thrilled.

  • Don't forget we got Breno off the GB practice squad and he was a 5th rounder and in the end, most were happy with his play. He wasn't an all star but we all loved his attitude and work ethic and he helped win a Superbowl.

    This guy will work out to be a good pick.

  • Interesting guy. In the Georgia game he gets blown back so badly you'd think he was John Carlson, but on running plays he's returning the favor. Probably has good core power, but might have issues with balance.

    Huh... interesting. Listening to Cable's press conference is really enlightening (about the whole o-line really). What struck me was how Cable said that he felt Britt looked awkward playing left tackle- that he would make some strange missteps. I wonder if this is contributing to what you are seeing here. Thanks for the report, Kearly.

    Also, it seems that Cable, in his way, is REALLY excited about Carp's potential this year. I never thought he was as problematic as has often been suggested, and I am looking forward to his performance if he is healthy and in better shape this year.

    I know which is weird with him having a wrestling back ground because in that sport you have to have good balance. All we can do is wait and see huh.

  • I can honestly say, I know nothing about this kid.
    I watched his combine footage and was not impressed in the least.
    I then watched the videos from the op, all the aggressive attitude seemed to come against smaller cb, s.

    Not a big fan of this pick as of now, we'll see how everything pans out.
    Our staff definitely knows more than me.
    I have faith that they see something I don't.

    we needed oline and WR and we got them.

    Yep. I never heard of them so it's good news and likely another awesome pick.I love being a Seahawk fan . And he's a Mizzou guy.:)


    Woohoo! A Tiger! J-school, class of '97 here. :)

    Listening to Justin Britt on the .com draft room feed, he sounded a lot like Max Unger to me. With his versatility he could be a Breno / McQuistan hybrid who can plug in here, there, and everywhere while he's getting his NFL Sea(hawk) legs. But yeah, Cable wants him competing at RT to begin.

    Can't wait for tomorrow's mimosa-sipping Saturday-morning draft-viewing! :thirishdrinkers:

  • I really like this pick. He has everything the Seahawks like in an offensive linemen. He can move, he can get to the next level quickly and he has the build and athletic ability to play multiple positions.

    I think that he needs to add some muscle and build up his strength a little bit. He can get bullrushed by stronger defensive linemen on occasion. Most of this time its because of a breakdown of fundamentals on his part like not setting up well in his stance in pass blocking and getting off balance.

    He's a good guy for the zone blocking scheme and he plays all the way through till the whistle, which Cable loves. Schemewise the techniques and blocking schemes that Missouri used are simpler, but fundamentally similar to the Seahawks run blocking scheme. I expect that this kid can step in and contribute reasonably early. Although I think a year, with a full offseason in a strength and conditioning program could do absolute wonders for him.

  • Couldn't we have gotten this guy a round or two later?

    Don't like this one either.

    Word from the main man is no; he would have vanished a few picks later. And I also heard he was our second choice at the position. One other player they had rated a bit higher went before they could grab him, but they were happy Britt fell to us when he did.

    J-Sizzle said the Seahawks war room predicted a run at tackle. 2 of the 3 picks after us were tackles. 2 more tackles were picked toward the end of the 3rd. Schneid knows his stuff.
