I disagree. I think the FO feels comfortable where they are at TE now that Zach Miller restructured. McCoy is back, Willson will continue to play and Miller will still be the starter. Beckum and Heifet will compete with McCoy for that 3rd TE spot.. but would be really surprised if Finley were brought on board especially after drafting 2 WR's

I do agree that Wagner's extension will be a priority next year. But I don't know if the draft necessarily reflects that. KJ Wright can slide over to play the MIKE spot and then they have since added depth at OLB/LEO .. so really I don't see any new news coming from not drafting an ILB.. particularly when that wasn't a very strong position in this years draft.
VegasSeahawkFan wrote:Didn't draft a highly ranked DT: Some people have been speculating that we are thin at DT, obviously the front office feels otherwise. They talked about moving Marsh around the line like they do with Bennett, but at 250 lbs he will be spending more time at LEO and DE than DT.
They wanted Easley at 32.. didn't get him. So don't particularly agree with this either. Could just be more of a case that the DT's they wanted weren't available when they were selecting more than anything.

Very similar to the MLB dilemma, the guards in this draft left a lot to be desired after Martin and Su'a Filo. Sankey dropped like a rock.. so that should say something. I believe you had a typo about Bowie, but its apparent Britt and Bowie will fight for the starting RT spot. Garrett Scott figures to get a crack at left guard with Bailey and Carp. So basically it will be really interesting to see what happens in camp/preseason.

I think Small and Ware will compete for a spot, but fully expect Coleman to win the job. I wouldn't be surprised if Small didn't make the team to be honest. Would be stunned if hes the starting FB come Sept. 4

Well Pinkins was drafted to be a corner, and is likely that developmental guy that will be inactive every week or sit on the practice squad. This is our system basically.. they pick up these kids with all the raw tools to be a corner in this system and they develop them into starting caliber players. I disagree that Maxwell is in our long term plans, because simply put, if Maxwell plays at the same level he did last year.. hes going to get #1 corner money somewhere. And that's fine, Lane and Simon are next in line to take over. Pinkins, I am sure, will be developed in such a manner to move up when Lane leaves in FA.. and so forth and so on.
