LOL I feel bad for English. Almost all his draft related writing this off-season was based around the 1st round pick. Now he's got to dig even DEEPER in this draft. Stay strong, Rob!

That's why I didn't publish a mock, I knew we were going to trade for Percy


That and I don't know shit about the draft

There was a 98% chance everyone was missing the 1st round pick anyway.

This is why I always chuckle at mock drafts before FA begins. So much changes in a hurry.

This is exactly why you wait to see what happens in free agency before doing a mock...

Free agency and the draft are connected. It's almost pointless doing a mock until mid-April.

I don't know anyone who is definitely trying to 'guess the draft' when they do a mock. Even in April. Most are just for fun or to create talking points in a long off-season. I chuckle at the snobbery attached to mock drafts.

Mock drafts are about valuing players and their fits not so much nailing exactly were they go. They are fun to read and follow and generate some off season talk nothing more really.

And sooooooo many people thought our FA period would be a dud. Funny sh*t. Everyone is so smart around here. I was actually hoping we would trade up to get Cordarelle Patterson...but we went one better than that even. Love it.

I didn't get our 1st Rd. Pick Wrong -- I DID have it being traded (j/k) ;)

Yeah ... this is why in so many ways I hate doing mocks prior to FA and really try to hold off on any kind of prediction until closer to April 26th. Shoulda listed to that little voice before putting that one out there.

Oh well. I had Austin going to Seattle in my latest at #25. I had a feeling Seattle was looking for an ultra quick slot type to be our Wes Welker. Now we just need to find our version of Randy Moss.

I think that Austin is exactly who they wanted, but after mulling it over post combine they realized he wasn't going to be there at #25...so Plan B.

Can't see this being 'Plan B' to Tavon Austin. This looks to me like Bevell & Carroll have history with the guy and they just went out and got him.

I think more likely that Harvin is Plan A, and Austin might have been plan B. But this does show that Austin certainly would have been a potential target.

Not that he's Randy Moss, but Sidney Rice wasn't exactly a slouch when Percy and him were teammates.

Not so fast! We could always trade back into the first and if we can find a trade partner that gives us a shot at a Richardson, I hope we do. This pick-up of Harvin just changed the landscape a bit, IMO. We have a couple year window before a hostage situation arises so it looks like Go time is now. I'm ready. I've been ready.

Well ... I believe that ship has sailed (trading up in to the 1st Round that is). Follow me here for a second ...

The latest projections have Sheldon Richardson going somewhere around the 18th Pick in the Draft. That's probably about right that he will go somewhere in there. According to Jimmy Johnson's Point Value Chart, the 18th Pick is worth 900 points. So, what would it take for the Seahawks to get up to #18 to select him?

Seahawks 2013 Draft remaining draft picks
2(56) 340 points
3(87) 155 points
4(122) 50 points
5(133) 39.5 points
5(153) 30.2 points
6(186) 17 points
7(200) 11.4 points
7(206) 9 points
7(217) 4.6 points
Grand Total ... 656.7 Points (short 243.3 Points)

So, even if the Hawks were to pull a Mike Ditka and trade every single last remaining pick they have this year, they STILL couldn't get up in to that range. [The closest they could get if they were to trade everything this year would be to #28 ... which is worth 660 Points]

But, let's say for some miracle that Richardson somehow slips down to #32 (not going to happen, but just for the exercise of it let's say that he does). The #32 Pick is worth 590 Points. That's a little more reasonable. Still, even in that scenario it would take the Seahawks ...

2(56) 340 points
3(87) 155 points
4(122) 50 points
5(133) 39.5 points
Grand Total ... 584.5 Points (5.5 Points shy -- but do-able with a 7th thrown in as well) to get close. So, unless they want to start mining from the 2014 draft even more (which I agree COULD happen, but I think it less likely.) it's probably not going to happen. I just don't see it at this point.

Why not package picks and move around this year? By Petes' reckoning, this will
be a hard roster to crack, so why not bring in higher quality rookies?
You can fill out your camp roster with free agents and you never know about those guys.

If the whiners use their 14 picks (pre-compensatory), how many will crack that roster?
They're drafting for other teams who will hang around for their cuts.

The Seahawks are in the same boat.
