The top players available that the Seahawks should consider:
Yes, that's right. The other tackles will continue to fall in this draft. Okung sucks dick (okay he's mediocre, but I love to dig at Sac's boy) and Carpenter had huge injury problems. It's sink or swim, and the new guys haven't been given a real good chance to swim at all. The same goes for G John Moffitt last year, whom I really liked. The team should in no way give up on him after one measly rookie year. He'll figure shit out, and he'll be good.
First step: Get rid of Dre Kirkpatrick. He's not the best player available, and he's far from a need. Trufant and Brandon Browner make up a formidable pair of CBs.
Piss on Michael Floyd (sorry, Pest). His skills are great, but not exceptional. And sheesh you want to talk about a WR with diva problems? How about off-the-field issues? Good lord. People who bitch about Jon Baldwin being a problem child need to shut the **** up.
Interior defensive line would be fabulous, but I don't see the talent available translating to what the Seahawks need. Brockers is a slow ****, still a bit immature, and I've got a nasty ass taste in my mouth from Tyson Jackson. I wouldn't wish that upon any team, especially a team that couldn't use him like a 3-4 team could use him. And **** Dontari Poe. He's not Haloti Ngata. Just shut the **** up, please.
Luke Kuechly, Kendall Wright, or David DeCastro? The talent : need ratio doesn't really favor Wright, IMO. And as great as DeCastro would be for the Seahawks' new run-first offense, they did just fine last year. They're much better finding interior linemen in the middle rounds to replace the other side of Moffit. As much as I hate white LBs (another dig at Sac), Kuechly makes the most sense here.
The Seahawks were fine against the run and pass in terms of yards. However, they can't keep both vets David Hawthorne and Leroy Hill. That's a small problem. By drafting Kuechly, they're getting a solid player to fill that position, as well as a player with the talent to work into pass rush lineups. It doesn't in any way address their pass rush problem, but it adds an extra possibility.
