Lots of good options; none of which are kickers.

It kind of frightens me that only SeatownJay said Iupati. He is the one linemen in the division that is leaps and bounds better than anything we have on our roster at his position. Regarding the thought of Akers: why? He was nothing special this season and we could do better than him easily off of that roster.

So, of course my answer is Iupati. Campbell from Arizona and Brockers from St. Louis.

I'm pretty sure that was a joke.

If you plugged those three players into our defense, I don't think you'd have any more holes and this would be a record-setting defense imo.


Great post and food for thought. I'd swap the Rams pick though with Chris Givens:

http://www.stlouisrams.com/team/roster/Chris-Givens/4a3ffa9f-7c0c-4762-af3d-15cba28b9d4e

Otherwise I agree one hundred percent. Campbell would find great work here specialist pass rusher, aldon smith would take the soft Will spot we have right now, and I want Givens for the speedster with hands and a chip on his shoulder.

Agreed on Iupati, not so much on the AZ and STL picks. Jenkins + Sherm = savagery.

Not much respect for Patrick Willis around these parts; he is a top 3 LB who just turned 28. He is also their defensive leader and makes all of their adjustments. That defense drops down 10 spots without him. Jim Harbaugh would be my second choice, but I couldn't stand having him involved with our team (practice squad QB coach?).

Losing Fitzgerald hurts the Cards the most. If you like Rice as a #1 then you will really like him as a #2.

Jeff Fisher is the choice when it comes to the Rams. He got his start as a defensive backs coach and we'll be happy to make him assistant defensive coordinator. With any luck the Rams will hire Rick Neuheisel and finish 2-14.

Nice try trying to get all creative with the coaches... but the title clearly says players

Anyone who doesn't take Fitz is out of their mind.

Willis would be awesome and I'd take Brockers from STL.

Because it would mean reducing the role of our 22yo MLB who SHOULD have won DROY whose 140 tackles, 2 sacks and 3 interceptions (despite starting the season as a 2 down LB) matches up well with Willis' 120 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles

With the possible exception of taking Fitz over Campbell from the Cards, this is my list.

Keuchly had more responsibilities than Wagner this season and defensive stats can be extremely deceptive. If we looked at stats in a vacuum than the people advocating for Justin Smith (47 tackles, 3 sacks) would feel downright foolish.

Let's stick a pin in this pipe dream.
In exchange for our covetousness where we steal our favorites from other teams, the other three teams get to take a player too.
The Cardinals take Russell Wilson.
The Rams take Marshawn Lynch.
The Niners take Dick Sure.

AZ- Fitz: Vertical threat taken care of.
STL- Quinn: Younger than Long and looks like he could become just as good.
SF- Jim Harbaugh: Make him Pete's water boy.

I get weakening the other team but Kap wouldn't see the field with RW here. Even for gimmicky plays, I want the ball in RW's hands, Kap can make some pretty bone-headed decisions.

I had the exact same thought. Knowing that each team would also get to pick a player from the Seahawks roster, the decisions who we pick would probably be different.

STL - Long - instance pass rush

AZ - Fitz - RW + Rice / Fitz / Tate / Miller = unstoppable passing game

Whiners - Bowman - Best line backer in the NFC

For simply making the Seahawks team better (for longer than 1 season) and not doing extensive research on the players for scheme fit the list comes down to.

Cards: Fitz, Peterson, Washington, Campbell
49ers: VD, Willis, Iupati
Rams: Long, Jenkins, Quinn, Brockers, Laurinaitis

I have a feeling Justin Smith and Willis are huge parts of what make Aldon and Bowman great so I will pass on them for this. I would want Justin the most but he's too old and banged up.

Cards: It seems impossible to not take Fitz here but I'm going with Patrick Peterson. He will replace and upgrade both Browner and Leon. This would complete our elite secondary.
49ers: I really wanna take Vernon Davis here but I think upgrading OG is more important for the offense so give me Iupati. (LB would be easiest to upgrade in draft).
Rams: Quinn could possibily be a product of Long on the other side so it's between Long and Brockers for me. DT is our biggest need but Long is proven. Going with Long.

I don't think the Rams take Lynch. If they're smart they would take Earl. The rest I could easily see.

I disagree with your thinking on this. First of all, there's no way they'd go into the season with Clemens as the starter, so they'd make a move for a QB anyway. Also, Bradford is decent, but I think he's one of those QBs who is good enough to keep you around .500, but not good enough to make the team a real contender, and too good to allow the team the high pick they need for a better QB.


Good logic, I like it.

That's tough.

From AZ I was going to go Fitz. Instead I go:

Daryll Washington. Slide Wagner to the weak side and we might have the best LB corps in the league. Seriously.

STL: Chris Long. Guy is a beast. Close runner up with would be Legatron.

SF: I would go with Vernon Davis, but I'm not sure he's a good enough blocker to fit our scheme. If he could fit, that's where I would go, but if his blocking hurts us:

Iupati.

What's with all the legatron love? Sure he can nail 60 yarders but he misses from >40 waaaayyyyy too much.

Az - Fitz
Sf - Bowman
St - Long

This thread is cool, some very interesting answers here.

I gotta defend Davis though... He's a phenomenal blocker!

From AZ: I would take Patrick Peterson. Had a few tough games but he can be a very good player for a long time.

From STL: I take Jenkins. I am getting greedy but either he or Peterson would play slot for me, the other would take Browner's spot. Keep Browner as my dime, since his contract is minimal for now.

From SF: I would take Goldston. Man hits like a brick and would move Kam to a rover LB type. Or I put Iupati at RG.

My DL would still stink but that is why I have the draft and FA.

From AZ: Patrick Peterson. Embarrassment of riches at CB for a looooooooong time. And he replaces Leon W.

From St Lou: Chris Long. Help where we need it.

From San Fran: iupati. Had my eyeing him coming out of college. Was horrified when he went to the Swiners.
