  • Now that we have had some time to learn about our rookies and see how they may fit in, post how you think they will turn out in their rookie year, and down the road. Not for chest thumping, just for fun. After training camp approaches, we will move this thread to the archive for safe keeping

  • Curry will start from day 1 and end up 2nd on the team in tackles behind Lofa. His presence will also allow Leroy Hill to do what he does best and Hill will get 13 sacks this year.

    Unger will start the season off as a backup and get his first start part way through the season when one of our guards or center gets hurt. He will play well and remain the starter after that.

    Butler will have 28 catches and 3 touchdowns. Splitting time with Burleson as the 3rd receiver.

    Teel will be the 3rd string quarterback and not see the field.

    Greene will take CJ Wallace's roster spot and play some special teams.

    Reed will be on the practice squad.

    Morrah will surprise and become our 2nd tight end. 15 catches with 3 touchdowns

    I also predict that undrafted free agent Devin Moore will take Justin Forsett's roster spot. And Forsett will be cut or back to the practice squad.

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest - Starts 16 games - should have won rookie of the year but it goes to a 5th round pick from Dallas.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon - Starts at C by week 6.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State - 2 starts because he is developing and injuries. (Re: Cut Branch cause of him after this offseason)

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers - Selling insurance with David Greene after TC

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers - PS player in favor of Babs.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon - Fringe PS player that is buried in the depth chart and never really is given a chance. Is released off the PS mid season for a WR.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California - Full time back-up behind Carlson - 3 catches.

  • 1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest - Will win the DROY award and make the probowl along with Lofa, and Leroy.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon - Will sub in at a guard position mid way through the season due to injury or poor performance.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State - Will set the Qwest Field Turf on fire and become a legit target for matt.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers - Will enjoy learning with a clipboard in his hand.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers - Will spend the season on the practice squad in favor of a more experienced player.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon - Will be extremely close to making the roster at the end of TC and make his way to the PS.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California - Will battle HARD with Joe Newton during the preseason to see who will get that 3rd TE spot. This is Newtons last chance to make it (no more PS eligibility) so the battle is going to be pretty good.

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest, assumes Peterson's position and out plays him while terrorizing the NFC-W RBs and QBs, demonstrates he was the best player in this years draft for seasons to come.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon, starts the year as a backup and becomes the starting LG as the season progresses, we are very happy with what he brings to the team.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State, will be a PR and the #5 WR to begin the season but will become the # 3 after Branch gets hurt again, becomes a total fan favorite and a ST phenom, develops an Engram like rapport with Hass.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers, will not make the team and will be the #4 QB on the PS, but is elevated to #3 as the season progresses.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers, starts the season as a ST coverage player or the gunner doesn't become a starter as a S this season, but pushes hard so he's a situational sub.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon, is a surprise makes the team as a coaches favorite and is primarily used on ST and otherwise in nickle situations as a pass rushing specialist and gets a surprising number of sacks, pointing out how ineffective the other pass rushers on the team are at present.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California, doesn't make the team but is kept to develop on the PS.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

  • 1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest - DROY candidate, awesome beast.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon - Will replace Spencer, who will move to guard then get benched.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State - Just as Housh will make us forget Bobby, Butler will make us forget Branch, who will be on IR.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers - Backup to Hass when Seneca switches to RB.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers - TC fodder.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon - Makes the PS.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California - Solid backup.

  • 1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest, starter, DROTY and probowl alternate?

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon, Back up until Wahle gets hurt.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State, Return duties, Branch will be out by the 2nd quarter in the first game, so he'll be number 3 this year while Branch sits taking up money he doesnt deserve.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers, hitting on cheerleaders and subsequently grossing them out.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S, Special teamer

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE, Practice squad

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California, depth chart will say #3, but stats will say #2.

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest -- DROY. Helps shut down opposing run games and limits opponents' short passing attacks, also providing some pass rush help.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon -- Sticks at LG, for good reason.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State -- Finds value as a situational WR and gains league-wide notice as a return threat.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers -- Will probably spend the first year learning but will be ready to move up to #2 in 2010.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers -- If he improves enough, will take over for Russell at FS, also a ST playmaker.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon -- Finds a niche as a ST ace and a situational pass-rusher.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California -- Becomes a valuable backup tight end, keeping the position strong if Carlson goes down.

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest - Starts 16 games at OLB. National reaction is much like it was for Lofa.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon - Starts at guard, moves to center halfway through the season. Performs decently this year with improvement as the year goes on.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State - Doesn't start but a couple of games (due to other injuries) but performs great as a rookie. Vast improvements next year.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers - Keeps the bench nice and warm all year.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers - Sees limited time as a backup.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon - Practice squad extraordinare.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California - Practice squad extraordinare.

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL
    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest- Will be a great player, won't win ROY because he plays in Egypt.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon- Starts 16 games somewhere on the line.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State- Plays just WR, not on ST. Has a good 1st year. not great. Will outplay Branch.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers- I honestly think in 3-4 years he will be our starting QB. He has the tools and the smarts. I hope he gets the coaching. (But I'm a WVU fan and hated when Pat White was named the starter instead of the other guy, whose name I don't even remember.)

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers- This year ST, next year backup, Starter after that.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon-Might make the roster, but I don't think so. Career ST player.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California- ST and backup to the best TE in Seahawks history.

  • Props - I love these!!!

    RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL
    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest
    Starts from day 1 and makes good contributions this year. Is not a Pro Bowler this year and is not in many serious conversations for the DROY. But, he doesn't miss tackles or assignments, and makes those around him a bit better. Few sacks of few opportunities.

    Down the road, he turns into a beast - and one of the most underrated players in the NFL. Becomes a Pro Bowl player in year 3 when his sack numbers increase, and he plays at that level for many years. His career declines slowly with his football IQ letting him last long after his body starts to give way.



    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon
    He makes the roster and plays in about 10 games due to performance or injuries this year. He plays well most of the time, but it's obvious he's still learning assignments this year.

    Next year, he competes for a starting job at G where he makes his career. Forget about a jack of all trades, he stays at G for his entire career. He never makes a Pro Bowl but is above average at guard for years 2-8.


    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State

    This year, he makes the roster but doesn't contribute much and lives on the innactives for about half the time. Less than 300 yards and 3 TDs for the year. He has a couple drops that haunt him...

    He never becomes a stud, but next year he starts to come into his own. We try him in the slot, but it quickly becomes apparent that he's better outside. His route running improves and he gets 800+ yards for three of his first five years. He's tough to cover, but never becomes the deep threat or big play guy that we'd like. He's quick, and that helps him more than his speed.


    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers
    Nothing comes of him. He's a PS guy this year and next year, but never makes our or anyone's roster. His arm develops in something that's servicable, but he never learns to read/react to coverage which is his downfall.


    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers
    The heater-just at S. A fan favorite very early on, he makes some huge hits and is everywhere this preseason. But, his technical skills are lacking. He makes the roster and makes big contributions in special teams. He plays in most games but doesn't see the field as a safety.

    His career is short and much of the same. A fun player to watch, but he never masters S in the pros and will be replaced by year 4 for another ST player with more promise to start in the future.


    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon
    A PS guy this year and next. He shows flahses in PS but he never makes the active roster.


    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California[/quote]
    A good player, Morrah makes the roster this year and bounces between active and innactive. He doesn't contribute much this year in terms of numbers, but plays well, makes his blocks, and doesn't mess up. No more than 200 yards this year.

    By the start of next year, he's a staple. He never develops into a star, but develops into a good blocker and keeps his soft hands. He tops out at 500 yards and 4 TDs one year, but he's always a get-the-job-done guy.
    Remembering rookies will play like rookies, since 2012.

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL
    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest - Will start all 16 games, showing why he was the best prospect out of college this year with his all around game. Will have 4 sacks, 90+ tackles and 2 picks. Will not be selected to the Pro Bowl.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon - Will not begin in week one as a starter, but will take over for any of Wahle/Sims/Spencer by Week 7 due to injury. Will play as well as a second round inside offensive lineman can play, but nothing spectacular

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State - Will have less of a role in the passing game than many think. However, he will win the starting punt returners job and return 2 kicks for touchdowns. Decision making with his kick returning will be questionable at times in the beginning 1/2 of the year.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers - Will make the team but will not be active for any games this coming year. Jeff Rowe will be cut.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers - Will beat out both Jamar Adams and C.J. Wallace for a backup safety position. Will be mostly a special teams player, seeing some time at Free Safety in place of B. Russell

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon - Will be cut and given a place on the practice squad.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California - Will be cut and given a place on the practice squad.

  • Curry Unger and Butler are remembered as the great 1,2,3 draft picks of Seahawk History.

    Curry is held out of practice after causing too many injuries to the offense.
    Unger Takes over at Center and becomes Blair Bush II-All Star-All Pro-Superbowl Champion-MVP
    Butller comes out of nowhere and leads the Hawks with most Sport Center Highlights

    Teel makes a splash in his first pre-season game by stepping out of the back of the endzone. Later in the year he disappears after going to pick up his free Thanksgiving Turkey. Travis Lulay steps in and no one notices the loss.

    C. Morrah hides in the shadows and breaks out big three years form now when Carlson is injured

    The new long snapper plays for the Hawks for 16 years and when he retires, he is immediately inducted into the Ring of Honor

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California

    Curry: Will be a solid starter at the start and will show flashes of brilliance. His second year will be much better.
    Unger: This is the guy I expected us to take in the second but who saw that trade coming? He'll be our LG this year and will help Big Walt have a great year.
    Butler: Will make some solid plays but wont break the starting lineup. Branch's replacement.
    Teel: If he sees the field we're ****ed.
    Greene: PS all year.
    Reed: PS.
    Morrah: PS to start will be brought up at some point in the season.

    I don't think anyone is going to be OMG amazing, mainly because our first two picks were at positions where you don't normally see incredible performances even from HOF players, by nature they're role players. Butler is going to be interesting to watch, he decides how long Branch has in Seattle.

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest------ Has a monster season, 100+ tackles, 2 ints, 3 FF's. Should be named DROY, but it goes to the flavor of the week, most likely a Cowboy, or Pat.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon Will start we one, at G. Have a good year, we won't hear much about him, which is a good thing for a O-linemen.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State. Will see some playing time around week 5, end the season with 16 catchs and 2 Td's. but shows lots of promise.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers... will a win the espy for best clip board holding, while prettying up the sideline.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers.... i think he has a real shot to make the team and play special teams

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon... ps squad

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California 3 Te... 4 catches

  • I will just keep to what I know, Curry may be the next incarnation of LT if he is what he seems (maybe better because he really seems to have his head on right and to value the right things, see who he brought to draft day?). If he is as right as it looks this maybe the Franchise changer we have needed FOR years. If he is not LT at least he will be an above average OLB.

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest

    Defensive Rookie of the Year. 80-100 Tackles, 8 Passes Defended, 2 INTs, 3 Fumble Recoveries.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon

    Prob Developmental Year. Could start into the season at Guard or Center if we have injuries, will get lots of play in a supplemental role.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State

    Developmental Year. Could see the field if we have a situation like last year, but unlikely. I can see him doing well in Preseason though, and setting himself up to be a legitimate threat next year. Could return punts with his speed and body control.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers

    Gonna spend some quality time with a clipboard, or perhaps on the Practice Squad.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers

    Crowded at Safety, I think he'll play Practice Squad this year, despite the asset he could be to special teams.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon

    Practice Squad. Needs to add about 20-30lbs to have a chance to play any more than special teams next year

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL
    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest
    -DROY for sure. He will lead the team in tackles because he will be tested early and often. Look for 4 or more ints.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon
    -Slowly rotated into a guard position. Mid season will be a starter. By the start of next year he will be the new center.

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State
    -Will see playing time from the beginning. Won't have a huge impact, but will play his role. Three or four spectacular plays will mark his season. Mostly used to keep defenses on their toes.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers
    -Might help out with the water, but no way will he be allowed to touch the gatorade.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers
    -PS

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon
    -PS

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California
    -He will be on the fringe, might see some time on the team and some time on the PS.

  • 1. Curry - His rookie year will be the most productive defensively that we've seen in Seattle. He'll be given every opportunity to contribute.

    2. Unger - I think he's being inserted at LG right away because it's the weakest link on a weak line and Solari believes he can win the job. He'll start from day one.

    3. Butler - 20-30 catches. He'll be invisible early and become a legit contributor the last half of the year.

    6. Teel - Will shine Hass' shoes

    7. Greene - I can't predict this one. He looked like a difference maker his junior year and a project the next. He has the physical tools, but I don't think he'll make it beyond special teams this season (if he gets beyond the PS).

    7. Reed - We hear how everyone is salivating over his pass rush ability so I have to believe he'll find a place somewhere on the team (PS most likely). He'll be groomed this year.

    7. Morrah - Makes the roster as 3rd TE. Plays special teams and not much else.

  • RD PK (OVR) NAME POS SCHOOL
    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest - This is the easy one....Defensive rookie of the year. No Pro-bowl. Will be everything advertised, and then some...

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon - Will spend all season on the bench, learning the LG position, and possibly being groomed for C. Since the team seems focused more on conditioning this season, my prediction is that injuries will be significantly reduced. Just like '05, the line that starts the season will finish the season (I know, whishful thinking)

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State - Enters the season as the #4 WR. Will be heavily involved in special teams - kick-off/punt-return - but will be very limited in the number of catches. 15-20?

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers - 3rd QB and innactive

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers - May make the active roster, but more likely PS material.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon - I guess I understand the love for this guy since the draft based on his relentless effort. But he is SEVERLY undersized....you realize that he is smaller than Curry? Unless he has the ability to play OLB (very doubtful), my guess is that he is not on the active roster, nor on the PS. I think Bennett will be on the PS in place of Reed.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California - Will make the roster as 3rd TE, but innactive most games.

    UDFA Rookies - None will make the active roster, and only Bennet and Moore make the practice squad. The other PS spaces are taken up by a couple of current PS eligible players, and by the random players signed after from other teams after final camp cuts. We always end up with 3 or 4 guys on the practice squad from other teams it seems...

    1 4 (4) A. Curry OLB W Forest

    Defensive Rookie of the Year. 90 tackles, 2 INT, 3 Sacks.

    2 17 (49) M. Unger C Oregon

    Backup the whole year, but sees some playing time in the final few games of the season while we gear up for the playoffs. :th2thumbs:

    3 27 (91) D. Butler WR Penn State

    #4 WR, less than 25 catches the whole year. Primary punt returner. 1 PR TD.

    6 5 (178) M. Teel QB Rutgers

    #3 QB. Inactive every game.

    7 36 (245) C. Greene S Rutgers

    PS. Could be a sleeper backup, but I think he's a year away.

    7 38 (247) N. Reed DE Oregon

    PS. Needs to bulk up.

    7 39 (248) C. Morrah TE California

    #3 TE, used some in Redzone, 10 catches 2 TDs.

  • Well, reality was quite depressing.

    Curry: Barely factored.

    Unger: Struggles at LG, moved to center with three games left, barely factored.

    Butler: Barely factored.

    Teel: Did NOT factor, though many wished he would be given the chance.

    Greene: Barely factored.

    Reed: Solid special teamer, barely factored otherwise.

    Morrah: Who?

  • I was pretty bad in my predictions.

    Way off on Curry.

    I didn't think Unger would start a game.

    I was right on Butler's Offensive production, but thought he would be PR.

    Teel: I was right on!

    Greene: Thought he would make the PS.

    Reed: Thought he would be on PS, turned out better than I thought.

    Morrah: Thought he would contribute. He looked horrible and did nothing.
