I apprecaite I am quite literally talking to myself at present (I am the only member here as it stands, the forum has been live for all of 3 minutes!).
Thought I'd start a post to discuss anything draft related, I have a countdown going and quite literally cannot wait for it to start next Thursday!
Ok so I wanted to just throw this out there because my life is in ruins due to how much fun I have looking at draft prospects:
If we get into rd 5-6 and are looking for a CB with potential I think Kameron Kelly from SDSU is a legit option.
- Measurements extremely close to Sherman.
- Positions on his receivers really well.
- Capitalizes on opportunities to punish bad passes and routes.
- Has a great sense of where the play is at all times.
- Some of the worst tackling ever observed by man. (He's always there in run support... but he just doesn't /always/ hit the tackle xD)
- Gets absolutely dominated when he's blocked. (He's always there in run support... but /sometimes/ he just gets tossed aside by a blocker)
Tackling is the deficiency I trust the Seahawks to fix the most out of everything.
Somebody get this assessment to John Schneider immediately.
Rashaad Penny - I thought the pick was way too early for him. Apparently an undisclosed team (Probably the Patriots given their pick of Sony Michel) called Schneider to trade for him after the pick was made. Maybe it wasn't too early. I felt like we could have traded back a couple times and still got him. The way I'm looking at it now though is this:
Penny is a monster talent with insane production and as many yards after contact as Barkley had period. There's different levels of competition there for sure, but that is still a gigantic statement to Penny's abilities. Penny has the potential to come out as the draft's best RB. We're lucky to come out of the draft with a player like this, even if I did feel it was a little early. I don't think interior line depth will last until we pick in Rd 3 but we'll see how they handle the rest of the draft. I'm staying excited, and it's awesome to have Penny!
Yeah most of them are have almost no effort whatsoever put into them do they!
Man I love Mock Drafts because of all the excitement of what could be and how other people see it... but MAN most are boring for Seahawks fans. Almost nobody ever has us trading back, the most certain of the 2018 draft's uncertainties! Even a Seahawks reporter for Chat sports..
Yeah Bradley Chubb would be fantastic, he's going top 10 for sure though.
