    @ChaddScott The pic from office window is old news. These guys had all missed a class. Great kids and hard workers. #tigertough #LSU

    Nick Sabin does similar things to motivate players. Harsh, but pretty effective judging by the recent success at LSU and Bama.

  • the coach woudlnt' have bothered with the sign in the window if he wasn't just trying to give some extra motivation to guys he thought were NFL caliber players.

    I know we'd all like to think there are thousands of russell wilsons that play college football but some of these 19-20 year olds sometimes act like 19-20 year olds.

  • Just based on roster numbers it seems like Simon, Lane, Thurmond and Maxwell will be fighting for two spots behind Sherman, Browner and Winfield.

    Should be a pretty fierce competition. My money is on Thurmond and Lane with Simon going to the practice squad (if he doesnt get claimed) and Maxwell getting cut.

  • I think Lane is basically a lock. He was solid last year, and his Special Teams play alone gets him on the roster.

    Maxwell is definitely done for. I'm only torn between Simon and Thurmond because Thurmond might be the only guy besides Winfield who can cover the slot. If they feel comfortable putting Lane behind Winfield, then Thurmond could be expendable, though I do like him.

    I could definitely see them carrying six: Sherman, Browner, Winfield, Lane, Simon and Thurmond.

  • I wouldn't be concerned a bit about any "off-field issues." Not only was that picture a while ago, but the front office has said specifically they do not sign anyone unless they're thoroughly vetted and know under no uncertain terms what's expected of them.

  • FWIW - Yardbarker is reporting that Simon got arrested yesterday.

    http://network.yardbarker.com/college_f ... d_13490563

    I have to admit that I dislike LSU players. They routinely score at the bottom of the wonderlic for a reason. they may produce good athletes but they have a high instance of trouble and failure.

    He was arrested Thursday, the Seahawks already talked to him about it before drafting him on Saturday.

  • He also had a suspension for failing a drug test, as did Spencer Ware. I'm guessing in both cases it was just due to Honey Badger's second hand smoke.

    He sounds crazy. Just like Sherman. They should be a shoutdown duo for many years (hopefully)

  • C'mon, guys, Simon's just a capitalist and entrepreneur! Don't be hatin' and persecutin' on account of that!
    What better motivation could a guy have than getting the money to be an investor and buy the housing projects?
    Not only that, he thinks well further ahead than just to his next bowl of toke! And he understands politics and influence, that the civilized way is to become wealthy enough to buy some minions. In short, an ideal Seahawk! Maybe just a little hot-tempered, but in a defensive player not necessarily a bad thing.

    Seriously, Pete and John were probably high-fiving over his arrest and his fall. Simon should come in with a chip on his shoulder over falling in the draft, and be motivated to show what he can do. And is "nice" and "civilized" what we really want in a DB? "Yeah, y'all just go ahead and run routes through my zone, no prob bro." Hardly!
    It does come down to numbers, and we'll see who Simon can beat out, if anyone.

  • I could be in the minority on this but, harassing Law Enforcement could be fun at times !!! I know I have done it plenty of times ... so, it is all good. They are doing their job ... and we are just moving on about life.

    Can he jump? Can he run? Can he tackle? Can he cover? Can he intercept it and take it back to the house?
    Hope we can welcome him to Seattle in a better neighborhood, where the police won't harass him every other day ...
    Good luck to the kid ...

    To ruin the meaning of your post, I'd like to point out that none of our draftees has signed yet. 8)

  • From a February article:

    LSU cornerback Tharold Simon may not be in the class with former Tiger corners Patrick Peterson and Morris Claiborne, but he isn't worried. He'd settle for the class with Seattle All-Pro corner Richard Sherman.

    "I saw someone (Richard Sherman) who went fifth pick in 2012 and he's the best cornerback in the NFL. It can be proven very easily. In my heart, I believe I'm one of the best corners. I'll prove it one day. They'll see."

    Now he's gonna get to learn from Browner and Sherman, dudes got all the resources at his disposal to succeed, I'm rooting for the guy very hard.
