I think that was a power move by the Seahawks. They wanted to show Sherman that no one is indispensable. Some of his criticisms of the play-calling last year was inappropriate and I think Carroll and Schneider wanted to show him he's not bigger than the team.
Maybe Mike Williams, the WR from Clemson. Maybe Marlon Humphrey, the corner from Alabama. Maybe Foster. It's likely Conley will drop, too.
Zero in the first round, IMHO. Given Thompson's lenience with Guion, however, I wouldn't put it past him to draft Mixon somewhere. But good luck with explaining that. And if the guy screws up again, you could ruin an entire season with all the bad publicity it would bring. It wouldn't look good on TT's resume as he reaches the twilight of his career.
I think they won't. There are two scenarios. One, he gets taken ahead of the Packers. Two, he drops out of the first round. I think there's some hesitation with him, that it's one thing to test like Clay Matthews, and it's another to have that kind of explosiveness. I wouldn't be surprised if he went high in Round 2.
Maybe Dalvin Cook. Maybe Forrest Lamp. i could see John Ross being there. Maybe Derek Barnett. Probably one of the quarterbacks.
Probably someone like Chidobe Awuzie, who could play that inside linebacker position that Burnett played last season. Or maybe Obi Melifonwu, who could play that position also. They
'd be a hybrid safety/corner even though he's listed as a corner. Maybe one of the inside backers like Zach Cunningham.
Charles Harris is a really good option. Derek Barnett, Takkarist McKinley also.
I almost burned popcorn in my office. But soon it will smell like Columbian roast.
Damn straight. What, do you think I'm stupid.
Michael Cohen is going to scout it out right now. I brought a frozen dinner because I didn't want to have to leave my post at the blog.
Seems like a stretch to me. Seems like a guy they would take in the second round if they traded back.
I've got it on on my Ipad right now. I just look at the score every once in awhile.
Sam Seale was great last year. He just tells it like it is. He's been around a long time and doesn't seem afraid to say what's on his mind.
The analytics guys will tell you you're exactly right. That's why they say that the guys who accumulate the most picks usually do the best in the draft. It gives you more chances at being right.
I'll probably get in a light workout, maybe try to get in a schvitz. Clean out the pores a little bit. Foot rub would be optional.
I said it earlier. I think they need an impact player on defense and they need to go chase one. I know its better to accumulate picks, but they pick so late in every draft that it's really hard to get Pro Bowl players. I'm not saying try to get into the top 10, but at least be aggressive and go for someone you highly covet.
It's not just that they start, it's that they're effective. How many rookie corners can you think of who have an impact right away? Who don't get beat early and often? Who take their lumps most of the season? I think of KC's Sean Smith. I think of Jalen Ramsey. But man, picking where the Packers are picking, it's really hard to find somebody capable of doing it.
