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'm going with Spencer Ware. He refuses to be pushed in any direction except forwards. Kind of like Marshawn.

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.

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'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.

Going with Simon this year. Seems like the easiest fit. Really hoping that Williams is a success but I think his journey may be more difficult.

Wait, that sounds like I'm just betting on the sure-thing in a horse race? Maybe I've got this all wrong... Maybe that's why I always lose when I bet on horses too... Hmmm...

I am going to go with Michael Bowie..I saw this guy play in a couple games at Oklahoma State and he physically dominated those games. Plus it would be insane to have our bookends on the offensive line be from Oklahoma State. I also see that Okung is wicked jacked about the pick.

Definitely Jesse Williams. In all my years watching the NFL, there are certain unique players I see on other teams and think "I wish we had one of those". Williams is definitely one of "those".

Ray Polk.

I am sure he hits the waiver wire before training camp is over, then I don't have to defend any of the rookies.

What's the word on him Jazz?

Small school underdog. Bigger kid, could develop into a LEO sub (8.5 sacks and 15 TFL last season), played safety and DE in addition to OLB in college. Tells me he may have some coverage skills in space, which is critical for our OLB/DE's.

I doubt he will spend much time in the backfield as he's more of a pocket collapser...that's something the D has been sorely needing, IMO, so I'm OK with that. He can send opposing QB's staight into the waiting arms of Clemmons or Irvin.

I'm excited about Bowie as well. He could be what we've been waiting for at RT, and with the Rams' defense getting increasingly beastly, our pass pro will have to improve. Teams will be getting after Wilson even more this year. Putting him in the turf is about the only way they'll be able to slow the offense once it gets rolling. I'm all for keeping Wilson upright, because he's displaced our D when it comes to giving us the best chance to win.

Yeah I am going to go with Chris Harper! I was debating between Michael and Jesse Williams as well because I think they will both be awesome, but I have to go with Harper because I just got that feeling like this guy is going to be an awesome wideout. Plus, I love the surprise factor he brings. Michael was awesome and many have him as the top RB in the draft if he does not get hurt. Many had Jesse Williams as 2nd round projection but think he may have fell because of knee or because he is so raw. Chris Harper though? Most don't have a clue (I didn't) because he was a receiver in a run heavy offense.

I have heard two names when people are trying to compare Harper to an NFL receiver: Andre Johnson and Anquan Boldin. I absolutely love the Andre comparison and Anquan was/is awesome as well. As much as I love the comparisons, of course that does not mean he will be anywhere near their level, but we won't know for sure until he gets his shot.

I have to go with Williams. Surname is mine, and any man with tats on his face better be committed to his pro career, since his odds of legal employment elsewhere are dramatically reduced.

Jordan Hill. Mostly because my brother and sister both went to Penn State.

Also, after watching some clips, I like how his eyes are glued to the ball in the backfield, his feet are in sync with his eyes, and his hands are adept at shedding blockers. I'm not sure he's NFL starter ready as-is, but I think he's in a great situation to succeed and contribute to the rotation.

Since DT Jordan Hill was my MUST HAVE player it should be him, but I don't like conforming to the mainstream.

I also like Ryan Seymour and Michael Bowie but they both got votes. So, I'll go with Alvin Bailey. He might not make the roster, but I think he could make the practice squad, and be a factor next year once he knows how to consistently play with technique.

Ware for me, I think he will be on ESPN for his blocks and tackles on special teams alone.

I'm going with Jesse Williams. Not because he's Australian, though.

Cool thread. Would have been kind of interesting to start as a poll perhaps?

I'll take the Aussie. I think a few GM's are going to wish they hadn't passed on 'em.

Chewbacca for sure. He's aces with a crossbow and is like 8 feet tall. Easy choice for my adopt-a-Wookie this year.

Then at least spell "wookiee" correctly, you heathen.
