Seahawks: How 2010 draft picks project

Published on April 8, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

The lockout will force NFL teams to rely more heavily on the draft than free agency, for now.

They’ll need the players they chose in 2010 to step forward as well. That will be more challenging if the lockout prevents second-year pros from participating in the meetings and workouts that come with a typical offseason. It’s still possible to make projections based on what 2010 draft choices showed as rookies.

I’ll begin with the Seattle Seahawks.

“Our guys all the way through the picks, not everybody has stuck, but for the most part, we were counting on guys to play,” coach Pete Carroll said from the NFL owners meeting last month. “You put together another year like that and another year like that, and your roster should be really be adjusted well.”

The chart breaks down the Seahawks’ 2010 draft choices based on how they could fit in 2011.
