  • I think it's obvious that there is a need for more interior pass rush on the Seahawks. A lot of names have been thrown around, and I encourage you all to throw in any that you have in mind.

    Mine is Margus Hunt, SMU. He's naturally a DE, but plays the interior often in different packages and is a physical freak. 6'8, 200 something pounds. He just started playing football a few years ago and the NFL is high on him. Definition of disruptive. I hope he's a first or second round pick. Imagine what Carroll can turn him into?

  • Unfortunately Sheldon Richardson will probably be drafted in the top 15-20 picks. 3-Tech's are in fairly short supply thereafter. Assuming the Seahawks can be patient in their 3-tech search, one of these guys could possibly fit the bill after the first round, especially Sutton.

    1. Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State: Despite struggling with a knee injury during the second half of the season, Sutton totaled an eye-popping 10.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss besides breaking up 5 passes. The junior is undersized, but uses his natural leverage and quick first step to blow by opponents. Sutton projects as a three-technique tackle at the next level. Projected as a 3rd round pick.

    2. Chris Jones, DT, Bowling Green: the all-Conference defender has a combined 21 sacks and 33 tackles for loss the past two seasons. He's an explosive but slightly undersized interior lineman who projects as a three-technique tackle for the next level. Projected as a 6th round pick. (sleeper=? 12.5 sacks, 19-TFL last season, also he was selected MAC- DPOY.)

    3. Quanterus Smith, DE-OLB, Western Kentucky: Smith was moving up draft boards before being sidelined with a knee injury late in November. He's an athletic pass rusher with the ability to make plays in backside pursuit. Smith consistently disrupts the action behind the line of scrimmage, a skill which has NFL scouts intrigued. Projected as a 6th/7th round pick (falling in draft due to injury).

    Note: If the Seahawks don't wind up with one of the top WR's in the first round or two, my choice would be to look at Da'Rick Rogers in round 3 if he's available, he's fallen due to character issues (just pot) but should be coachable and really is a first round talent with great size/speed/stats IMO.

  • Hopefully Chris Jones can get a senior bowl invite so that evaluators can see how he looks against top competition. He didn't blow me away when I watched the video below, and he'd need to if he wanted to impress while playing his games in the MAC. I did like how he shows very active arms and a high motor, but I don't think that alone will be enough to make a difference in the NFL. Great 3 techs are very rare, and the few out there looked DOMINANT in college. Even Geno Atkins looked dominant at times (especially his senior bowl).

  • We definitely need better pass rush up the middle so the opposing qb cant step up. Dont keep up with college football so hopefully we draft someone good

  • Notre Dame (DT) Kapron Lewis-Moore 6-4 306 lbs: He isn't a pass rushing force, but he is a solid all-around d-lineman. Kapron could play at the 3-tech and 5-tech for us. He is a solid all-around d-lineman and he is a mid-round prospect.

  • How about Joe Kruger from Utah? Could he help as a backup to Red and a stand up DT on passing downs? I am assuming he could be had in the middle of the draft or later.
