If the Seahawks had the 1st pick, who would you take?

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • The only rule is you cant say you would trade the pick. I want to know which prospect you would add to the Seahawks out of them all. For me, its really only between Myles Garrett, Jonathan Allen, and Leonard Fournette. I cant make up my mind, though I'm leaning towards one of the defensive guys.

    Which is scarier as a NASCAR package? Clark/Allen/Bennett/Avril or Garrett/Clark/Bennett/Avril?

  • It would be hard to pass up Cam Robinson to solidify our tackle position. But i'd probably go Myles Garrett.

  • I think you nailed it. I'd like to think Fournette would make the bigggest difference. A solid running game would help the OL, Defense and RW.

  • If we ad the #1, then I would also think we would have the first in the 2nd as well.

    These would be my two choices:

    Cam Robinson
    JuJu Smith-Schuster

  • It'd be awesome to have any of the three guys mentioned in the OP, personally I'd give the edge to Jonathan Allen.

  • Makes sense for the Hawks to select the best OT if they had the first pick. Guys like Allen and Garrett would have huge impacts but we're already kind of stacked at DE so not sure that would be the right choice. Cam Robinson would be my pick.

  • Bama OT Cam Robinson if he comes out. We need an offensive tackle worse than any other team in the league but this is supposedly a poor draft for the position. From what I've read there are maybe two prospects in this draft that even project to left tackle. If Robinson comes out he would easily be the best of them.

  • I have lost confidence in this regime to draft good OL talent.

    Too many fails to list. I'm not sure what the fix is. Perhaps getting known quantities is the best way the Hawks can build their line. I don't agree with that methodology though.

  • I might be the only one that thinks this but I don't think left tackle is a big need. I think Fant with experience will be fine. The Seahawks main problem is the inside gets consistently blown up. Particularly left guard. Britt and Ifedi will be fine with time. If anything you keep Fant and develop him, keep of course Britt and continue developing Ifedi.

    Whoever is the best pass rushing defensive tackle you pick him, only if his talents are worthy of the first overall pick but you waste it if you just pick a player for need. They need to be worthy of it. The Seahawks NASCAR package of Avril, Bennett, Clark and Marsh often times lack size and strength. They need a true bulldozing DT anchor in the worst way.

  • I take Dalvin Cook. He has speed, power, vision, and durability. Much better than Fournette. Plus Cook ran behind a terrible line his entire time at FSU so he will be used to doing it on his own. ;)

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    I believe Cable said something in the line of, "colleges do not produce quality lineman anymore, with the spread offenses, etc etc."

    But, if that's true how come other teams seem to be able to develop solid offensive lines?

    Maybe Tom Cable isn't as good of an evaluator or coach as we hope he is.

    I don't know.

  • Allen. All day every day.

    Allen turns this defense from a top three defense to an all time great defense.

    Honestly though, we could possibly achieve this by adding Calais Campbell if he becomes available.

    Allen or Campbell on a line with Avril, Clark and Bennett. There is pretty much one guy who is going to come free on nearly every dropback.

    Watch the UW tape. He single handedly wrecked the Huskies offense.

    I'd go Allen. We could get a damn good RB with the 1st pick in the 2nd, or maybe trade it and a 4th to go back into the 1st and grab Coleman from FSU.

    I'd love Garrett but I think he's redundant for us as we have Clark, Bennett and Avril (yes I know Bennett and Avril are getting older but they've shown no signs of slowing down).

    I see Allen being something like a beefier Aaron Donald. Think about that or a Suh type player going 3 downs and crushing not only the run but the pass as well. We'd be back to allowing 15 ppg on defense immediately.

    Cook is an impressive player. Wouldn't surprise me if he had a Marshall Faulk type career.

  • As of right now, without spending much time watching these guys I'd lean Garrett or Allen.

    NOTE: I've watched more Allen than I have Garrett. He's going to be a force

  • I would take Jonathan Allen. Everyone is clamoring for more pressure from the interior of the defensive line and Allen would solve that concern. I really hope the 49ers don't draft him, its bad enough we have to go against Aaron Donald twice a year.

  • Trade down to around 15 and get Ram if he stayed in school one more year he would be a top 5 pick. Myles is tempting but I would rather see Russ not in a body bag before putting even more into the D.
