Morning links: Checking out the mock drafts

We’ve got a month left before April’s draft, so now is a good time to peruse the mock drafts and see where who they have Seattle taking at No. 6 and No. 14.

Of course, the best way to do this is to check out the Fox Sports’ Mock Draft Muncher, which compiles the top mock draft from around the country.

According to The Muncher, Seattle is likely to select QB Jimmy Clausen at No. 6 and RB C.J. Spiller at No. 14. At this point, I believe the Seahawks might pass on Clausen at No. 6 and take either Spiller or a defensive end like Derrick Morgan at No. 6, and then draft the other position at No. 14. I don’t think they take an offensive lineman in the first round.

Rob Rang, senior analyst for, has Seattle selecting Clausen at No. 6 and Morgan at No. 14, while his colleague Chad Reuter has the Seahawks selecting OT Russell Okung at No 6 and Spiller at No. 14.

Don’t like those picks? Well, you can do a mock draft of your own using ESPN’s draft machine.
