Dan Kadar at Mocking the Draft reviews the key pro-days at Florida and Pittsburgh: “One draft riser who will get to show off today is Pittsburgh’s Jabaal Sheard. Projected by many as a 3-4 outside linebacker, Sheard looked good running a 4.68 40-yard dash at the Combine. Still, he didn’t the three-cone drill in Indianapolis, a key drill for linebackers.”
Rob Rang has an updated mock draft and suggests the Seahawks will consider Ryan Mallett at #25: “The Seahawks appear to be very intrigued with the Razorback’s strong arm. GM John Schneider was on hand for Mallett’s pro day.”
Chad Reuter also has an updated projection and this time the Seahawks take Mike Pouncey: “Pouncey could play guard if Max Unger steps in at center, or vice versa.” Am I the only one who thinks the play of Chris Spencer warrants an extension?
Reuter has Christian Ballard (DE, Iowa) going at #57 in round two. You can see Ballard’s combine work out here.
Walter Cherepinsky has an updated six-round mock draft. The Seahawks take Jimmy Smith and Orlando Franklin with their first two picks.
Mike Mayock looks at boom or bust prospects on the defensive line. Mayock also has some interesting thoughts on Jimmy Smith.
R.C. Fisher reports that Ricky Stanzi scored a 30 on his wonderlic test (24 is considered the average).
