2013 Adopt a Rookie thread
Sat Apr 27, 2013 1:23 pm
  • I know we're not done with the draft quite yet...but I'm just too excited about my adopt a rookie this year....Tharold Simon, AKA Humble Thug. He may not see the field this year, but he has the chance to be a solid replacement for Browner if everything pans out right.

    Who is your adopt a rookie? You can only pick 1!!

    Here are your options:

    Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M
    Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State
    Chris Harper, WR Kansas State
    Jesse Williams, DT Alabama
    Tharold Simon, CB, LSU
    Luke Wilson, TE, Rice
    Spencer Ware, RB, LSU
    Ryan Seymour, G, Vanderbilt
    Ty Powell, OLb, Harding
    Jared Smith, DT or O'line, New Hampshire
    Michael Bowie, OL, Northeast oklahoma St.
    Kam Chancellor: The Chancellor of Defense
    Bruce Irvin: BruceMode
    Tharold Simon: Humble Thug

  • This is my favorite thread every year.

    I'm a little tempted to take Spencer Ware just because he runs even more Beast Mode then our original Beast Mode, but ultimatly the decision is easy.

    Chris Harper. Partly because he's an ex-Duck, but even more so because he reminds me of one of my all time favorite Seahawks, Brian Blades. He's a tough, tough football player and will become a 12th man favorite, imo.

  • Harper is intriguing...I'll be honest, I know nothing about him other than the youtube videos linked today, but I like how he goes after the ball. Plus it looks like he'll help out on the run game.

    You just gotta pick one dude who you root for no matter what. Who's back you've got through thick and thin and who you defend against all negativity.

    Seriously? You've been registered here for 4 years and you've never seen the annual adopt-a-rookie threads? Lol. You pick a rookie that you're a fanboy for, and stick with him through thick and thin for the year. It's really just a chance to flash your ego if your pick (assuming it's a mid-rounder or later) turns out to be really good.

  • I base my adopt a rookie on the best back story.

    Last year, Turbin, because of him being a man and taking care of his sister.

    Been at work all day, don't know a thing about any of them yet.

    Any good stories?

    I'd say Jesse Williams but having YOLO is just bad, really really bad. Plus he's australian so therefore a criminal

  • Gotta take Jesse Williams, I wanted him in the 2nd, then 3rd, then figured we wouldn't add another DT. Gotta say I was disappointed in our first few picks initially but was P&J'd for Williams. I think our DL will be much improved this year with the additions or Avril, Bennett, Williams, and Hill. I expect a healthy Red Byrant and and improved Scruggs and Howard fighting for their roster spots.

  • Luke Willson, TE, Rice

    I've complained for a tight end pick so I might as well be his homer. Wasn't even on my radar but if Pete likes him, I do.

  • Jordan Hill. I love his game. He's a disruptor and a slasher. Someone who can knife into the backfield. It's a skill-set we definitely need and he reminds me of another favorite -- Rocky Bernard. I have a feeling he's going to be a lot of fun to watch.
