  • I have to go with Williams. Surname is mine, and any man with tats on his face better be committed to his pro career, since his odds of legal employment elsewhere are dramatically reduced.

  • Jordan Hill. Mostly because my brother and sister both went to Penn State.

    Also, after watching some clips, I like how his eyes are glued to the ball in the backfield, his feet are in sync with his eyes, and his hands are adept at shedding blockers. I'm not sure he's NFL starter ready as-is, but I think he's in a great situation to succeed and contribute to the rotation.

  • Since DT Jordan Hill was my MUST HAVE player it should be him, but I don't like conforming to the mainstream.

    I also like Ryan Seymour and Michael Bowie but they both got votes. So, I'll go with Alvin Bailey. He might not make the roster, but I think he could make the practice squad, and be a factor next year once he knows how to consistently play with technique.

  • Ware for me, I think he will be on ESPN for his blocks and tackles on special teams alone.

  • Cool thread. Would have been kind of interesting to start as a poll perhaps?

    I'll take the Aussie. I think a few GM's are going to wish they hadn't passed on 'em.

    Your logic is sound, so I'm adopting Jesse Williams as well.

  • I am adopting Michael Bowie. We need a backup tackle something serious. Okung spoke for him, so I'm all in. Tharold Simon is a close second. I don't see Seattle resigning Browner. That leaves Lane and Simon to make an impact in 2015.

    Mike Person still intrigues me. He is no longer a rookie, but may as well be.

    FYI: I am not a SF fan. I just wanted McDonald.

  • I like Bowie and Abiley as long shots. Also like Hill cause everyone says he's a reach, but in the end I'm going with TE Luke Willson, a preseason Amckey award condadidate with good size, to end speed and soft hands. He unseats McCoy and pushes Mller for the top job in 2014.

  • Chris Harper. I watched him play in Oregon as a QB and KS as a receiver. I thinks he bring a lot to the team. He big, quick and having been a qb might give him a better football IQ as a wide receiver. It's going to be fun watching defenses tyr to stop this offense. Seahawks have added a lot of speed and option to their offense.

  • Dayum, i almost missed the AAR thread.

    This is my 4th AAR now with the first three picks ending up in juvee. I just have a soft spot for those less fortunate.

    Not this year though. I am going with a blue chipper.

  • My pick is Jordan Hill i like his non-stop effort and his size is good for leverage to push the pocket. I also think he could develop into our base 3-tech putting a DT like Hill next to Avril or Irvin is going to be a nightmare for the blind side of the line alot of speed for the weakside to deal with.

    I was gonna pick Jesse Williams i think he's a lock to make the team with his obvious run stuffing ability but i seen where he was used as a fullback which i thought was pretty cool and intresting in short yardage situations.

  • After watching videos of the rookie minicamp, I'm going with Jerrod Johnson.

    Yup, he's a longshot, and his starting spot is definately filled, but I liked the way he can really huck the ball. Guy's got a cannon. I also liked how articulate and intelligent he sounded. When he talked about Russell, he mentioned work ethic as a top trait....if he works hard, I think he beats out Portis and makes the team...if we carry 3 QB's. Maybe PS if not, but he seemed comfortable out there and he's got the physical tools.

  • I was all about Jesse Williams pre-draft and was kinda upset when we passed on him 3 times. So initially I jumped on Da Monster's bandwagon as my adopt a rookie. After watching some of the rookie camp interviews and reading about some of the guys I'm kinda wishing I'd have picked Chris Harper, there is something about him that just makes me think he will be very successful and his size and strength going against our CB's will be very fun to watch. I'll stick with J-Will, but I am rooting hard for Harper to make some noise and push Tate and Baldwin for playing time.

  • Jesse Williams. Been a fan of his since 2011. Kind of was the outlier in terms of banging his drum throughout the 2012 season on SDB. Absolutely thrilled that we picked him up.

    He likely won't be the pass rusher that we needed. I can concede that much. But I love his brand of physicality and toughness. Those attributes are the currency of the day in the NFC West. I like him in a John Morgan/Brandon Mebane kind of way. I hope he sticks around for a good 8+ year run. At worst, he'll be the next Red Bryant.
