Tuesday’s draft links

Mike Mayock was at the Georgia pro-day and has this report for the NFL Network. Chaos reigned supreme as the lockout continues to hamper prospects working out for scouts. Mayock wasn’t impressed with Justin Houston, “He’s not a first round prospect.”

Walter Cherepinsky has a six-round mock draft available. The Seahawks go defense with their first two picks, selecting Jimmy Smith and Marvin Austin.

Rich Cirminiello from collegefootballnews.com has a top-ten video mock. He has Blaine Gabbert going first overall.

Ryan McCrystal at Draft Ace also has an updated mock draft. The Seahawks take Ryan Mallett at #25 and Demarco Murray at #57.

Brandon Adams at 17 Power is forecasting an early run on quarterbacks next month. This blog is a daily feature for me, this is a great article and kudos for a graphic tagging which teams will be thinking QB ahead of Seattle.

Former Seahawks scout Bucky Brooks has a piece on the risk/reward nature of Ryan Mallett and Jimmy Smith.

The latest ESPN ‘First Draft’ podcast is available, with Todd McShay and Mel Kiper discussing picks 6-12 and other draft matters.

Merril Hoge breaks down the tape on Blaine Gabbert for ESPN:

Don’t forget to vote in the Seahawks Draft Blog poll asking ‘what is Seattle’s greatest need?’ (click here to vote). I’ll have an updated mock draft on the blog tomorrow including (for the first time this year) a second round projection.

    Marvin Austin and Jimmy Smith… That will never happen but I will say if it did I might just be able to forget about the fact we have no QB

    • Alex

      That would be very impressive. It would be BPA in key areas of need other than QB at its best. Then there are plenty of interior lineman to pick in the middle rounds.

  2. Matt

    Trent Dilfer on Brock and Salk saying the Hawks have to take Dalton at 25 IF he’s available….Yikes. I usually respect Dilfer but he’s saying Dalton is a clone of Aaron Rodgers…I guess minus the arm strength, decision making, and mobility. Really hoping this isn’t the case.

    • Rob

      Really don’t ‘get’ that opinion. Dalton will be around much, much later than round one and isn’t anywhere near worth a first rounder.

      • Matt

        That’s my thought too. If anything, he’s a lesser Colt McCoy. Maybe I’m slightly concered because there are more second tier type QBs this year than year’s past, so there are that many more names beingrown out there.

        Speaking of QBs, Rob, what’s your thought on Kolb for #25? I’m not the biggest Kolb fan, but at 25 you’d be guaranteed a QB with a decent track record, albeit on a very good team. I am slowly warming up to that idea, even if I’m not terribly excited about it. Just curious as to what you think considering cost and the fact that the Hawks might not be missing out on much at 25 if the chips fall a certain way.

        • Rob

          I’m not a big Kolb fan and I’ve seen him play just as badly as he played well vs the Saints. He’s had some of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL to throw to. He’s not a lost cause though and really, he needs games to prove himself. It’d be easy to support such a move on the basis that at least they’re making that move to secure the key position long term. They’d have to find some playmakers though and I suspect it’ll be a moot point because I doubt free agency begins before the draft.
