Our draft preview coverage begins today with a look at what quarterbacks the Seattle Seahawks might consider. We'll take a look at a position group each day leading up to Saturday.
Mark Sanchez has recently been the trendy pick for the Seahawks, but even if Seattle does not select Sanchez at No. 4, they will probably pick a quarterback at some point during the draft.
Other teams looking at Sanchez include San Francisco, Jacksonville, Denver and Houston. Sanchez believes he has the total package.
Also, Ruskell will be tasked with the decision of whether to draft for now or for the future with the team's No. 4 overall pick.
Our own Dave Boling says the Seahawks need to bolster the team's infrastructure and pick a tackle.
Rob Rang, senior draft analyst for NFLDraftScout.com, breaks down the quarterbacks Seattle might take a look at in this year's draft.
