I thought about putting out version 3 of the Hawkmans mock but would like it if someone was able to join me in a back and forth draft process so that another person can put their ideas down. So on to the Hawkmans ideas about what the Hawks might be doing.
One thing Hawks fans should be loving to see if pick 24 comes and goes is Brian Brohm still sitting on the board and the Falcons having not gone QB with their first pick. This would give the Hawks an amazing oppurtunity to trade down and collect multiple picks and still be able to tackle needs but in a better position. Would you rather see the Seahawks reach for a TE in the first or trade down and get that same TE for 2nd rnd money? Definetly the 2nd. This could also give the Hawks 3 2nd rnd picks.
On to the 2nd idea. If the Seahawks had stood pat this offseason and gone into the draft thinking and praying that Jonathan Stewart is going to fall into their laps how mad would the fan base be when we get a 2nd rnd prospect that dosent pan out when Stewart goes higher than expected? Julius Jones and T.J. Duckett are the insurance policy right now if he right RB dosent come to the Seahawks. I know many people who might have been upset if we simply went into another year hopping that Shaun Alexander regains his form and guys if Maurice Morris was the answer dont you think he would be getting more oppurtunities and wouldve been signed when he hit free agency a few years back by another team? You can say the Jones might be a Morris clone well at least hes a Morris clone with more game time expierience. All in all look for the Hawks to take a RB in the 2nd or 3rd rnd. Dont worry guys well get it done.
Mainly though this probably isnt going to be a sexy draft for the Hawks. Look for help along the d-line with somebig space eaters and some fresh blood along the o-line. If a player the Hawks like at WR is around later in the draft look for them to take a stab there.
No need to fret folks just stay positive.
