NFL Draft Wishlist: Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks are STACKED this year after adding Harvin, Avril and now Michael Bennett.  There are no positions on the team that aren’t occupied by a young starter with tremendous potential.  The Seahawks are in a position to grab the best player available and take high risk/reward type picks.  If this team doesn’t have injury issues, they’re my pre NFL NFC champion.  I think they’ll end up meeting the Denver Broncos in the Superbowl (you heard it here first!)

Round 2 – Robert Woods, WR, USC – Take the best player available here.  Why not Robert Woods?  He can be reunited with Pete Carroll who recruited him at USC and can provide another weapon for Wilson.  He’ll be a different type of receiver than the small and speedy Golden Tate and Percy Harvin.  He’s a little taller at 6’1, still speedy and as Pete Carroll is probably aware is a very productive receiver.  If he is available this far down into round 2, Russell Wilson will have a very fun season in Seattle.

Sleeper – Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M – The Seahawks are pretty stacked everywhere, but if I were to pinpoint the best area to build on on the Seattle defense, I’d look at the weakside linebacker position.  Leroy Hill is one of the few veterans on the team over 30, it’d be nice to add a talented young productive SEC pass rusher at outside linebacker in Sean Porter.  Porter is a versatile linebacker who has played strong and weakside linebacker in the 4-3. He’s also played well as an outside linebacker in the 3-4, he’s a utility guy who can move to different types of linebacker roles.  Versatile players like Porter are what the teams that have everything should be looking for, you never know where someone will go down.
