Mock, mock

Mock, mock

Who’s there? It’s open season for mock drafts, even if it is way too early to speculate on what positions a team might go for in the April NFL draft let alone which players.

But with the Senior Bowl in the bank and the scouting combine three weeks  to go, here are a half dozen projections from national media on who the Seahawks might select with the sixth and 14th picks in the first round:

  • 6. Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida – This is where this year’s first round starts to get interesting. The Seahawks desperately need an offensive tackle, but they just missed out on the draft’s best in (Oklahoma State’s Russell) Okung in this scenario (he went to the Chiefs at No. 5), and Rutgers’ Anthony Davis or Oklahoma’s Trent Williams may be slight reaches this high. We’re giving them Dunlap over Georgia Tech defensive end Derrick Morgan, because of his rare blend of size and speed.
  • 14. C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson – As noted earlier, the Seahawks need to upgrade at offensive tackle, and this round is deep in them. But Spiller is the consensus No. 1 back in the draft and Seattle’s offense needs some play-makers. In our scenario, the Seahawks just miss out on Okung at No. 6 and Trent Williams at No. 13, prompting them to think running back here and take their offensive tackle in the second round (No. 40).
