  • robert woods. didn't have great numbers last year because Barkley had a connection with the other receiver (brain fart can't remember his name) but watching him all year and at the combine he has amazing hands and great route running already. He'll also prolly slide a bit due to the lack of numbers.

  • I really liked Ryan Swope. I've never heard of him until the combine and boy did he look impressive.

    Haven't see anything but his youtube highlights but his measurables make him very tempting. He'd be an instant deep threat and red zone target. He needs to add a little weight and could become a Demarius Thomas type threat.

    Marqise Lee is the guy whose name is eluding you. He and Woods also went to the same high school. For some reason Kiffin and/or Barkley forced the ball to Marqise a lot, even when Robert was open at times. Both guys are talented.

    How so? Why is he not the kind of receiver the Seahawks need?

  • Standouts? John Schneider and Pete Carroll! (Love seeing both of them shown observing the players)

    As to the players, I'm a Tavon Austin guy. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-combine/0 ... eed-matter

    But, Robert Woods is another who really looks the part to me. I'm thinking he could be (relatively) a steal in the draft. Sounds like his production was a question mark do to his teammate, Lee. So, maybe that's enough to see him drop to the Seahawks selection in round 2. I say a steal because I could see him playing lights out and one thing that defines a "steal" is when that player is significantly more productive than several players selected ahead of him.

  • I want Ryan Swope. If we don't take him, I'm afraid that the Whiners or the Packers will and we'll regret that decision for years to come. He fits the mold of a high-production GB receiver.

    He has excellent speed (and quickness) in a running back's body (he's a former RB like Tate) and his lower body strength and hip flexibility are outstanding (unlike Tate). Tate's elusive. This kid has burst in his lower body.

    As a result, he's able to run crisp routes in man to get separation and knows how to find the soft spots in a zone.

    The kid is just one helluva football player and will make an outstanding pro imo.

    I believe that he has OROY potential.

    I'd be pounding the table for him.

  • I have a real bias against USC. and tend to see all there prospects as overratted. Going into the combine, I didn't love Robert Woods, however, watching him at the combine caused me to rewatch his tape. He is a great route runner. He won't blow you away with his measureables. But is extremely solid, quick off the ball, and attacks the ball in the air.

  • John and Pete are there? I have been watching sporadically and keep seeing Hardouche, etc but have yet to see our guys.

    Woods has impressed and so has Swope. I doubt we get either. lol.

  • Strictly based off the combine, Woods was impressive. But Conner Vernon looked pretty dang good during most drills. The guy caught everything thrown his way. He passed the eye watching him yesterday that's for sure.

  • I have never been a Tavon Austin advocate but he really impressed me. I thought he was more of a DeSean Jackson type and just tiny. The dude is actually very well built and he had a really good workout. He also has the amazing college production. I am really coming around on him.

    This is where I'm at along with Tavon Austin and Swope, all three of these guys have really shown up but Woods was the surprise for me, can't put my finger on it. May be a potential thing. A solid and athletic route runner with RW's arm could be a magical combination.

  • Brandon Williams DT Southern Missouri State. Holy smokes! Kid has muscles on his muscles and at ~ 6'1", 330 lbs. can MOVE. Like many of us I just know these guys from what I see at the combine so some of ya'll more in the know can shed more light on this guy. But I'm telling ya... this guy sure looks like he can make a little noise in the NFL.

  • Kwann Short is my cut-off for first round DT, if the higher rated guys are gone I would trade down and hope Hunt or Jones makes it to the #25 second round pick. I'm not sure about Sylvester Williams but I think he'll fall into the top of round 2 somewhere and I think I could be persuaded to make that selection at #25. One guy I was wondering about was Jesse Williams if John and Pete are thinking of depth for Red Bryant, I think someone like Green Bay or Jacksonville make a lot of sense for him, maybe Ravens, Steelers, and the 49ers, but he reminds me a lot of Bryant.

    Dion Jordan is shooting up to being the #1 overall defensive prospect not surprisingly with that athleticism and size.

    Devin Taylor as a surprise 2nd or early 3rd rounder(depending on trade down) for Seattle? Long arms, steady production in the SEC, great size to play outside and maybe inside on passing downs like Jason Jones did.

  • Marquess Wilson (Wazzu) has terrific hands. Measurables were good. Can he be had in the 4th?

  • I was surprised with Ryan Swope and TCU (WR) Josh Boyce. Having watched both players this past year I didn't expect either one of them to run below a 4.45 40-yard time. Also, surprised with how slow Clemson (RB) Andre Ellington ran...but I wouldn't make to much of it because his speed on the football field really stands out as near elite.

  • Was able to watch some if the workouts today. Dion Jordan is impressive. That Margus Hunt guy is an amazing athlete for his size 6'8" but I'm not sure his late start in football will bode well for him when it comes to playing in the NFL. Check out his speed for his size. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72SLCNaHJco
