In Depth Analysis Of The Seattle Seahawks Draft Needs For 2010

Published on March 30, 2010 by     

Okay lets break down this years draft needs and take a good look at who the Seattle Seahawks have picked every year since 1976. Can we glean anything from this? Probably not but it can give you an idea of how many players truly turn out to be a great NFL player or just an average player.

Seattle needs depth on both sides of the ball and with free agency almost done with, Ii feel they have made some choices that has given me wiplash more than anything.

Players that make you say’ Who the hell is Charlie Whitehurst,’ Who the hell is Morey, and so on. I think the Seattle Seahawks have a rough road ahead if they plan on being in contention in the NFC West for the 2010 season.

This is not a trick question, but tell us who was the last Offensive tackle the Seahawks picked in the draft.

Walter Cherepinsky – Quotes:

NFL.com’s Pat Kirwan reported last week that McCoy’s stock is falling and he could slip to No. 6 in the 2010 NFL Draft. Whoa, such great breaking news! As soon as I read that report.
“Most mocks have had this for a month now. Thanks, Pat.”

Remember when Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy were “locks” to go Nos. 1 and 2 in the 2010 NFL Draft by most publications? How things have changed.

I think this is the furthest that either Suh or McCoy could drop. The Seahawks really need help on their defensive line, and McCoy is clearly the best player available. Seattle’s front office would be thrilled if Gerald McCoy or Ndamukong Suh falls this far, and I don’t think they would take too much time sending in their draft card to Roger Goodell.

Other notables the Seahawks could pick at #14

1. Charles Brown, OT – Left tackle is a big need for the Seahawks, but Anthony Davis has looked sluggish and out of shape in his preseason draft workouts. Charles Brown may make more sense in this team’s zone blocking scheme.

2. C.J. Spiller, RB – The reason I had the 49ers taking C.J. Spiller at No. 13 instead of No. 17 is because the rival Seahawks are a very likely candidate to draft him. Seattle needs to find a talented running back, and would love for Spiller to fall into its lap.

Seattle Seahawks
Needs: LT, RB, DE, CB and S

Analysis: A new coach and general manager, and the roster is being turned upside down. Among the remaining issues are the futures of left tackle Walter Jones and defensive end Patrick Kerney, which will really impact the draft decisions. If they have to replace both players, plus get a running back and a safety early, it may be too much to ask, even with two first-round picks. The decision to trade for quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was questioned by fans and the media, but time will tell. Ultimately, it may say more about the draft class at QB than anything else. There is still a chance Brandon Marshall winds up here before the draft is over. Coupled with that potential move, if they can grab a left tackle and a safety like Eric Berry or a defensive end, they will contend in 2010. Expect the Seahawks to be active trading picks and moving around throughout the draft.
Draft choices: Nos. 6, 14, 60, 104, 127, 139, 176, 213 and 245
