3000 NFL mock draft: Episode #4

In the podcast this week we run through a top-20 mock draft, talk a lot about Ole Miss, compliment the best player in college football and talk some Seahawks (and cake)…


  1. Trevor

    Rob loved your take on Founrette. If Lynch plays one more year he looks like the perfect replacement. Different type of runner but perfect for the type of team Pete wants.

    That being said and given that Schiender is always thinking a year or two ahead. Do you think he would consider trading Kam to a team like the Jags (who perennially have a high pick) for a 2017 #1 instead of trying to get a 2016 pick? With the idea that the might target Fournette?

      Why is everyone so intent on trying to find another Lynch? It’s not going to happen. There’s good power backs, but so what if their style is different?

      Fournette is the best back to play in CFB in quite some time. IMO he’s a top 5 talent.

      • cha

        Agree V12. There’s more than one way to build a championship team.

        • Volume12

          Look at ND RB CJ Prosise for example. 5’11-6’0, 218-222 lbs., but as CHAWK said, doesn’t look that big, like Fournette. Prosise is an amazing athlete. Former safety and returner in HS, is a converted wideout, but you’d never know it. He’s got breakaway speed, good feet, sturdy, good balance, runs through arms tackles, good build/muscle tone, and just has this competitive spirit about him. Not only that, but he talks well and is a team first guy with a great backstory and family behind him.

          I’d love to have this kind of back on my team. He keeps playing like he is and he’ll be a top 100-125 selection.

          Point is, he’s an intriguing back with loads of upside, but he’s different than Lynch. Nothing wrong with that.

          • CHawk Talker Eric

            What about Marshall HB Devon “Rockhead” Johnson? He could be a late round/udfa gem. Big, powerful back – 6’1″ 240lbs. Rarely goes down on contact. Surprising break away speed. Decent hands.

            • Volume12

              Haven’t watched him yet. Could he potentially be more of a Marcel Reece in the NFL?

              I really like Texas A&M’s Tra Carson as a late rounder-UDFA. Dude just quietly produces and puts up big numbers on the ground.

              That Texas A&M team is loaded with talent man. De’Vante Harris is an intriguing corner back. Really looking forward to them playing Arkansas on Saturday and gettng to see Alex Collins against thier D.

      • Trevor

        Vol I did not say we needed to find another Lynch? As I noted they are different type of runners. What I said is we need to have a lead back to replace Lynch for our system and I thought Fournette looked like a great option.

        Love your feedback but but if you are going to make a comment like that please read the post first.

        • Volume12

          Sorry Trev. I kind of unfairly lumped ya in with some who think that Seattle’s run game has to have another Lynch. There’s just not going to be a runner that runs bow-legged, and is as shifty.

  2. Volume12

    Rob, what do you think about S. Carolina’s Skai Moore as a safety prospect?

  3. CHawk Talker Eric

    That’s pretty funny. A good friend and die hard USC fan/alum/booster said the same thing about Kelly coaching the Trojans. And this from a guy who used to spit venom at the very mention of Kelly.

    Interesting thought about IND luring Saban into the pros. It’d be hard to turn down full control of an NFL franchise with Luck at QB – assuming Irsay would offer him Carte “Kelly”.

  4. CharlietheUnicorn

    I know this is change the subject… but… I thought Dave Wyman on 710 ESPN brought up a very interesting point. He mentioned that the DL and secondary were playing decent to exceptional… however he thought the LBs.. specifically the guys playing SAM and WILL were doing a poor job in the rush defense. He mentioned that multiple times they got engulfed by guards or tackles.. and were not able to shed blocks …. to get after the rusher. Then when they were getting their hands on the rusher, they were not tackling properly and getting the guys on the ground. Just some food for thought, maybe the rush defense is not looking right due to some fundamental problems, not because of a certain hold-out.

    • CharlietheUnicorn

      Why I mention this…. LB might be a bigger need for Seattle then we commonly assume heading into the 2016 draft.

      • Volume12

        Maybe. I’m sure they’ll tak another hybrid edge rusher somewhere in the draft, but I’ll be surprised if they spend a high pick on a guy that will be 4th on the depth chart. They seem to like going for cast-offs and the UDFA route in regards to true LBs.

        • Volume12

          For back-ups I should say. With KPL the exception.

      • RealRhino2

        I agree, though I think it’s about 3rd on the list off the top of my head. I’d like to start with a mauler at RT and a high-end CB, then look to LB. Not impressed with Irvin’s work so far this year, hope KJ can switch over and KPL can hold up, but nice to have another option and high-level depth.

    More of a topic for the last thread but I can’t stop thinking about cable being the OC. What he was able to get out of the Raiders offense his last season was pretty impressive. Zack miller was a top receiving te and they were pretty solid with a lot less talent. I don’t think it will happen at all but the main question about bevell is who would replace him because a deep run in the playoffs would eliminate the best coaches. Cable could step right in and it would be easier to replace a oline coach to work under cable. I think bevell is good for the team personal but his game calls leave a lot to be desired.

    • Rob Staton

      Cable is already pretty much co-offensive coordinator. He has as much sway as Bevell.

    • Madmark

      I believe that Cable will be the next Seahawks head coach when PC retires. Pete’s getting up there in age now and Cable is also the assistant head coach already.

  6. rowdy

    Oh, and george farmer replaced pinkins on the practice squade. I find that very intriguing but questionable because pinkins look like he was making plays in preseason.

  7. CHawk Talker Eric

    B/R is reporting that Kam will end his holdout today and return to the team!

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Adam Schefter:

      Here’s what Kam Chancellor texted Stephen A. Smith: “Ima go help my teammates that are understanding of my position and the ones who aren’t. God forgives all, why can’t i? Time to help us get back to the big dance . I can address business after the season. Me and Marshawn started a mission 2 years ago. I can’t let my Dawg down….Real talk.”

  8. Rik

    How excited will the Bears offense be to see Kam back in the middle? Think they’ll be second guessing those slant routes?

  9. Beanhawk

    Absolutely love these podcasts, Rob. Thanks so much!
