If the Seahawks can get some needs addressed in Free Agency (not suggesting first batch of high priced guys... but, maybe if they can land some guys like Louis Vasquez on the OL and Glenn Dorsey on the DL. Brian Hartline might be my favorite FA WR available)... I think the Hawks really need to address the WR position - even getting 2 top WR's available. Here's why. I love Rice, Tate and Baldwin. But, I'm not so sure about the rest of the WR corps. If any one of those guys should miss any time, who are the Hawks counting on at that point? Plus, how can a team have Russell Wilson at QB and not have a full stable of talent at WR? Elite QB's are not exactly common. To have one and to not give him the very best possible receiving corps the team can assemble would be a waste. Again, I'm not mocking any of the great players we have. Zach Miller, included. I like McCoy and even optimistic about certain other players currently on the roster to see if they can show they belong (Bates, Williams, Helfet) Just that since the QB is in place... it would be a shame to not try to put even more talent around him.
I'd like to see at least one of the following (and just listing players I think could be available when the Hawks pick): Hopkins, Austin, Wheaton or Woods. (Robert Woods is impressive.) Any in this bunch would be amazing. Any 2 might be a dream, but if the draft fell that way and was possible... I'd be absolutely elated. Tavon Austin may be the only 1st round player in this list with the other 3 being high 2nd rounders (Mayock is projecting Hopkins as a 2nd rounder). Austin + any of those. Or, any combo of the other 3... the team would be set at WR. If that falls through, another WR by round 3 or 4. Maybe Patton, Bailey, Swope type guys.
