I've raved about several Oregon players over the years, though sadly it's been a kiss of death for their careers. Hopefully Thurmond can be an exception.
There have been FAR more Oregon prospects that received my seal of approval than UW ones in the last four years or so. Unfortunately, the players that seem like the best draft bargains from both schools recently have fallen like rocks on draft day because of medical or character concerns. : (
I don't think it should matter who's team you root for when making evaluations. We're not a bunch of hopeless homers here, we're Seahawks fans that want to see our team draft the best players, regardless of where they come from.
I'm kind of at the point now where I barely care about UW, anyway. Until they have the kind of O-line / D-line that Stanford has, I don't think they'll ever be more than a fringe top-25 type team. Sark is building from outside in, recruiting skill positions while (for the most part) ignoring the trenches. Tim Ruskell tried the same thing. It didn't work so great.
Who knew all it would take was the oh so obvious ASJ-Jerramy Stevens comparison. Before someone calls me out for being a tool for thinking Lyerla and ASJ will be busts, I don't. Just think it would be perfect for J and kearly. So say, what comment do I have to make to get rid of pe?
Just so you know, I've mentioned ASJ and Stevens in the same breath several times already over the past couple years. In terms of physical talent, they are essentially identical. ASJ has terrific hands though and up until his DUI, had no character concerns.

Obvious trolling aside, I'm not surprised you like Lyerla. He's a bit like a rich man's Vance McDonald.
Which is fine. And I dont even disagree. I think both of them are really impressive. I'm guessing NFL Scouts will think ASJ is more impressive. Thats not what this thread is about (other then Scotteemojo instigating stuff
) its about Colt lyerla being a Seahawk at the very end of the first round.
I'd be ecstatic if ASJ was there for us when we were drafting. But i'd also be ecstatic if Colt is our pick.
I could totally see Colt Lyerla being a Seahawk 1st round pick next year.
