Thoughts on Hawks claiming QB Robinson

Adam Caplan of Fox Sports is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks have claimed quarterback Zac Robinson off waivers and he will now serve as the team's third quarterback.

Robinson was a seventh-round draft pick by New England but released during final cuts on Saturday.

I imagine this will quiet the speculation on Matt Leinart heading to Seattle.

The Robinson move is interesting because I thought before April's draft that the Oklahoma State product was somebody the Seahawks would consider drafting.

They obviously watched a lot of tape of Robinson while they scouted offensive tackle Russell Okung. And Robinson was impressive during the Senior Bowl.

When I talked to Robinson during the scouting combine in February he indicated that the Seahawks had shown interest in him.

Here's a breakdown of Robinson heading into the draft.

Also, Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas is reporting that the Seahawks will sign nose tackle Junior Siavi, a University of Oregon product released by the Cowboys.
