Jesse Williams is the first indigenous(aboriginal) Australian to be drafted I believe....so he's not descended from criminals

I love a lot of people in our draft class but I'm going to have to go with Christine Michael. I figure any guy who grew up with the name "Christine" would have to learn how to run very fast and knock people over, so I see very good things in his future. :D

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.

Jesse Williams for sure. First Australian drafted, a place I want to visit someday. And has a Yolo tattoo.

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.

Christine Michael. I have a feeling this kid is going to see some touches this year. 5TDs for him.

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.

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.

Yes I did say I wanted the rookie WR, however he will not make the probowl this year...but guess who will?

Christine (it is pronounced Chris-tin)

Hard time decising between Williams for being the first aboriginal to get drafted and Christine Michael for the sheer excitement factor. Even though the first pick is a too easy choice, I just have to pick Michael.

Spencer Ware for me. If he and Micheal can develop the same sort of chemistry as MRob and Lynch have now, that could be a big deal for the Hawks a couple of years from now.

First this thread should have been started by Jseahawks (like every year)

I would like to note that I picked Wilson as my AAR last year!

I think Jseahawks loves this thread and thinks about it all year - the fact he goes with that WR, and I hear he is the next Boldin

I am going with that WR with the size....again remember I called Wilson while you were thinking about Irvin!

Am I saying pro bowl this year, no. But I am saying if the rook looks like AB from arizona at all, he will be our number 2 WR and that is plenty enough for me to pop him into my AAR 2013 slot




I'm with you, Spokane. I jumped the gun right after the Simon pick instead of thinking of Jseahawks traditionally posting this thread. I offered to delete the thread, but he graciously allowed it to stay. I promise not to steal any other board traditions from now on!

Jesse Williams for me. I lived in OZ for 10 years and got my dual citizenship with them.

To make it better he is from Brisbane where I lived for the 10 years.

Wow to make it even better he played for the Bayside Ravens who play in Birkdale which is in the Redland Shire that I lived in.

I remember the news about them forming in 2000 while I was still there. I only wish I had gotten to see him play before I left.

That made me hate him


I agree. It would be so much cooler if it said Octopussy.

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've seen, just never bothered to check out the threads.

Reading my local Sunday paper I learned that Jared Smith went to high school in Greencastle, PA, just a few miles up the road from where I live. So I'm adopting him.

Da Monstar is a player I hoped we would take in the second because this team needed a force in the middle. Now we got him for a fifth and a sixth. If he strengthens his lower body he should be able to collapse the pocket, and he is quick enough to crush any runner who risks coming near. Just what the doctor ordered.

I'm going with Ty Powell as well. I believe that I'm the second one to pick him.

I came away impressed after watching his pro day tape.

The kid's put together well, he's smooth during his transitions and he has very good ball skills... and the quickness/speed is good enough imo.

It will be interesting to see how Pete and Dan plan to use him... as a Leo?... or as a Will.

As a diehard Toronto Blue Jays fan when it comes to baseball, I've got to root for Luke Willson since he played for the organization last summer. A Blue Jay/Seahawk. I have absolutely no choice but to make Luke Willson my 2013 adopt a rookie.

Plus, I think he's going to be a badass out there. He's definitely got the athleticism. How great would it be if he ended up better than his former teammate and the dude who started over him in college, Vance McDonald? I'd love it!

I'll say Chris Harper. Being a former Duck, he'll need all the support he can get.

I loved our early 5th round picks in Williams and Thurmond, I think both have an excellent chance to be great players in the NFL.

My favorite underdog, if you can even say that is Ty Powell, all muscle athlete, pro tape was impressive.

Richard Sherman - 5th Round
Kam Chancellor - 5th Round

Jesse Williams - 5th Round
Simon Thurmond - 5th Round

Yea... thats how I feel.

Jesse Williams is my adopt a player, as I think he has a chance to help one of our most noticeable weaknesses last year towards the end which was run defense.

Spencer Ware. Christine Michael is awesome and will have 100 times the career most likely, but Ware might have the funnest highlight reel of any Seahawks player drafted in this regime not named Russell Wilson.

As an LSU fan. I can tell you all this
My most used phrase last college football season was " OH COME ON THEROLD...SERIOUSLY??!!"
it got to the point when i'd play NCAA id bench him before every game.
I LOVED Spencer Ware, AKA THE JUGGERNAUT, the only problem i have is he puts his head down way too early to run people over instead of just changing direction even when its a wide open hole. Hopefully he can change that.

I wanna say the Juggernaut is my adopted Rookie, but with Marshawn and Turbin...ill just go with my other Tiger, THEROLD...dont let me down....like you have for years already....SEAHAWK REDEMPTION FOR THEROLD.

For an LSU fan, you sure spell "Tharold" incorrectly a lot. In any case, we'll see what comes. I've given up trying to predict whether X player will succeed at the NFL level. It's impossible. Nobody has even been able to do it with 50% accuracy, so you might as well flip a coin.

4.84 40 yada yada his 20 yard split is top of the food chain and came back in his pro day with a 4.65 40 but was one of the top performers at the combine in the verticle 35.5 " and 3 cone 6.91.... which is legit quicks.

Jeese "Tha Monster" Williams. He is the one player I believe can have a tremendous impact on the defensive line. Many project him to be a Ngata type of player. If he is even half of that, it'll be very good. I see a lot of similarities between him and a former Seahawk - Marcus Tubbs. When Tubbs was in there, he had strong impact on the defense. Guys like Tatupu and Hill benefitted from it. Williams could have the same effect for Wagner and rest of the LBs.

For an LSU fan, you sure spell "Tharold" incorrectly a lot. In any case, we'll see what comes. I've given up trying to predict whether X player will succeed at the NFL level. It's impossible. Nobody has even been able to do it with 50% accuracy, so you might as well flip a coin.


its such a common name, i forgot. :roll:
btw hes not very popular among our fanbase, so i dont really see his name spelled alot, but it is fun to yell.
i should just stick with humblethug.



Terrible Tharold?

Jeese "Tha Monster" Williams. He is the one player I believe can have a tremendous impact on the defensive line. Many project him to be a Ngata type of player. If he is even half of that, it'll be very good. I see a lot of similarities between him and a former Seahawk - Marcus Tubbs. When Tubbs was in there, he had strong impact on the defense. Guys like Tatupu and Hill benefitted from it. Williams could have the same effect for Wagner and rest of the LBs.

I love the idea of Bane at NT and Williams at 3 teq and Red at the 5 teq that just has the potential to be very stout in my opinion. In addition to the run stuffing abilities of that group I really want to see what type havoc Jesse can creat in the backfield at 3 teq, i'm excited.

I gotta go with Ty Powell, since I was pushing for us to pick him.

I'm going with WR pick Chris Harper. I love his size, speed, route running and toughness.

I would love to see him compete with Tate for the starting job.

My pick for this year is our latest conversion project Jared Smith.

Quote:
The Seahawks turned their attention to adding depth to the offensive line in the seventh round. Seattle selected Vanderbilt guard Ryan Seymour, Northeastern State tackle Michael Bowie and plan on converting New Hampshire defensive tackle Jared Smith to the offensive line as well. Seattle also selected outside linebacker Ty Powell from Division II Harding University. Powell is the first player from Harding to be selected in the draft since 1983.

My Adopt A Rookie is Kenneth Boatwright because, and this may sound vain, but he followed me back on Twitter when i followed him. Seems pretty chill too.
