With a little over two months remaining until the NFL draft in April, I thought today we’d take a look around some of the national sites to see who they have the Seahawks selecting. Chad Reuter and Bucky Brooks of NFL.com have Seattle selecting North Carolina outside linebacker Zach Brown, an athletic specimen that would improve Seattle’s speed at that position. But don’t forget Seattle still has Malcolm Smith and Jameson Konz in the fold.
Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com still has Seattle selecting Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still in his latest mock draft, which would upgrade an already stout run defense inside.
Russ Lande of the Sporting News has the Seahawks selecting Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill in his latest mock draft, probably the best signal caller available if Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are likely gone.
Walter Football has Seattle selecting South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram – although he’s one of the best edge rushers in the draft, Ingram is somewhat similar to players already on Seattle’s roster like Dexter Davis and Pierre Allen.
Never miss a local story.
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has Seattle selecting North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples. I’d be surprised if he’s available at 11 or 12.
ESPN’s Ted Miller talks to former Seahawks head coach Jim Mora about his transition from an NFL coach to heading up the football program at UCLA.
Chris Egan of KING 5 TV talks with Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin about his transition from the St. Louis Blues NHL team to Seattle in this video link.
ESPN’s John Clayton interviews Seahawks offensive lineman Breno Giacomini about his new contract in this audio link. The interview begins about 28 minutes in.
Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com reports that Stanford and Baylor have scheduled their pro days on the same day on March 22, making it hard for teams to see both Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III throw in person.
More Rang: He has the list of all the college pro days here.
