That’s right, the 3rd annual Seahawks mock draft is here, our feeble attempt at predicting what players Seattle will select with the team’s eight picks.

Last year Hefferous and HawksfaninMT took home title honors. Both got two picks right, correctly picking the Seahawks to select Russell Okung and Earl Thomas with the team’s first, two picks.

In our first contest, Schlede from Denmark took home first prize by getting two picks overall correct, Aaron Curry in the first round and Nick Reed in the seventh round.

That said, here’s my attempt to predict who Seattle might select beginning on Thursday. Post your own mock draft in the comments section down below or email me at, and I’ll throw them on an excel spreadsheet and announce the winner on Monday. Again, one per customer please.

Seahawks 2011 Draft

First round (No. 25 overall) – DT Marvin Austin, 6-2, 312, North Carolina
Comment: Could be the pick if guys like Corey Liuget and Mohammad Wilkerson are gone. Did not play all of last season because of NCAA suspension for taking improper gifts from an agent, but has shown accountability for his actions and could be another reclamation project for Pete Carroll

Second round (57th overall) – OT James Carpenter, 6-3, 295, California
Comment: Watch most successful running plays by Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram and you’ll see a hole opened up by Carpenter. He can play tackle or move inside to guard, moves well and plays with a nasty streak.

Fourth round (99th overall) – DE Greg Romeus, 6-5, 265, Pittsburgh
Comment: A former Big East Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year, Romeus had a rough senior year due to surgery on a herniated disc followed by tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Connecticut during his first game back from the back injury. He’s worth the risk here.

Fifth round (156th overall) – CB Jalil Brown, 6-0, 200, Colorado
Comment: The other cornerback opposite Jimmy Smith at Colorado.

Fifth round (157rd overall) – OG Stephen Schilling, 6-5, 308, Michigan

Comment: Bellevue High product gets a chance to play for hometown team.

Sixth round (173th overall) – QB Nathan Enderle, 6-4, 240, Idaho

Comment: Coach Carroll gets his developmental quarterback here.

Seventh round (209th overall) – LB Mike Mohammad, 6-3, 240, Cal
Comment: Offers scheme versatility and good instincts as an outside backer.

Seventh Round (242th overall) – WR Dontavia Bogan, 6-0, 187, South Florida
Comment: Has great hands and explosive playmaking ability. New England head coach Bill Belichick has shown interest, so that’s good enough for me.

    I’m hoping for a trade down (who isn’t?) to add an extra pick in the 2nd and/or 3rd but for this i’ll just leave the picks as they are. Another Boise State homer here as it looks like I have friends who’ve already posted!

    Yup heavy on USC grads and PAC 10 guys

  13. blacktie says:

    R1 Andy Dalton, QB
    R2 Rodney Hudson, G
    R4 Sam Acho, DE
    R5 Shareece Wright, CB
    R5 Taiwan Jones, RB
    R6 Greg McElroy, QB
    R7 Greg Little, WR
    R7 Stephen Schilling, G

  14. 1 – trade
    2 – QB Andy Dalton – TCU
    2 – OG Ben Ijalana – Villanova
    3 – CB Ras-I Dowling – Virginia
    4 – DT/DE Kenrick Ellis – Hampton
    4 – WR Niles Paul – Nebraska
    5 – DT Cedric Thornton – Southern Arkansas
    6 – CB Richard Sherman – Stanford
    7 – ILB Chris While – Mississippi St
    7 – WR Jeff Maehl – Oregon

    What a crapshoot. With all the needs this year, and with Schneider likely to trade down multiple times, who knows where they will actually draft? I don’t believe they will draft on Thursday night, and I think Schneider will try to maximize picks in rounds 2-3-4. Other guys I’d be very happy to draft would be OG Danny Watkins, OT Gabe Carimi, DT Corey Liuget, OG John Moffitt.

  15. johnsiegel says:

    #25 – Jimmy Smith CB
    #57 – James Carpenter, OT
    #99 – Will Rackley, OG
    #156 – Mason Foster, OLB
    #157 – Jalil Brown, CB
    #173 – Cliff Matthews, DE
    #209 – TJ Yates QB
    #242 – Jerrod Johnson QB

  16. Dukeshire says:

    1 – Trade
    2 – DT Stephen Paea
    2 – WR Jon Baldwin
    3 – CB Ras-I Dowling
    4 – OG John Moffitt
    4 – QB Greg McElroy
    5 – LB Jeff Tarpinian
    6 – OT Jarriel King
    7 – CB Jason Teague
    7 – OG Ricky Henry

    You can cross all these players off, because if I predicted it, it’s not happening. lol

  17. Well, I also believe Seahawks will trade down, and gain extra picks. But in this competition it will be a bit unfair, and I doubt that it will even count, to name more than 8 players. So here are my choices:

    1. QB. Colin Kaepermick
    2. DT. Jurrell Casey
    4. OT. Jason Pinkston
    5. OT. Lee Ziemba
    5. CB. Curtis Marsh
    6. DE/DT. Cedric Thornton
    7. LB. Jeff Tarpinian
    7. OG. Julian Vandervelde

  18. 1. Nate Solder OT Colorado
    2. Stephen Paea DT Oregon State
    3. Davon House CB New Mexico State
    4. Allen Bailey DE Miami
    5. Ricky Stanzi QB Iowa
    6. Ronald Johnson WR USC
    7. Adrian Moten OLB Maryland
    8. J.T. Thomas OLB West Virginia

  19. hefferous says:

    Trying to defend the title with no idea how I picked 2 right last year.
    #25 – Jimmy Smith CB
    #57 – Marcus Cannon G
    #99 – John Moffitt G
    #156 -Greg Romeus DE
    #157 – Allen Bailey DE
    #173 – Keith Williams G
    #209 – Jeremiha Hunter LB
    #242 – Nathan EnderleQB

  20. 1. Ryan Mallett, QB
    2. Rodney Hudson, LG
    4. John Moffitt, RG
    5. Drake Nevis, DT
    5. Marcus Cannon, RT/OG
    6. Jerrell Powe, DT
    7. Jared Jenkins, WR

  21. Dukeshire says:

    Bobby – Hudson? You were so critical of him before? WHat happened? lol

  22. I really like Palerydr’s Mock. BobbyK’s would be pretty interesting, depending on how Mallett pans out.

  23. EyeAmBaldman says:

    This has to be one of the toughest years to gauge where or who we will be drafting….ugh….so here goes:

    1. Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina
    2. Orlando Franklin, OL, Miami
    4. Greg Romeus, DE, Pitt
    5. Davon House, DB, New Mexico St.
    5. Demarcus Love, OL, Arkansas
    6. Austin Pettis, WR, Boise St.
    7. Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama
    7. Caleb Schlauderaff, OL, Utah

  24. It’s totally not a “who I want” mock,” it’s “trying to get as many right as possible” draft. If it was a “who I want” scenario, I’d start off with Locker…

  25. 1 Gabe Carimi OT Wisconsin
    2 Ras-I Dowling CB Virginia
    4 John Moffitt OG Wisconsin
    5 Mason Foster OLB Washington
    5 Greg McElroy QB Alabama
    6 Bruce Miller DE Central Florida
    7 Josh Gatlin CB North Dakota State
    7 Kai Forbath K UCLA

  26. Well mine was just total guesses! and in no way do I believe that Mason Foster falls to the 5th but I thought what the heck why not!

  27. williambryan says:

    I expect a lot of trades as well so these picks are number sppecific.
    1. M Wilkerson
    3. Taiwan Jones (Carroll gets his new Reggie Bush!)
    4. Rackley
    6.Kerley (WR TCU)
    7. Green (RB hawaii – I realize this has little chance of happening but i like this green guy)

  28. williambryan says:

    *should be “are NOT number or round specific” sorry.

  29. First round (No. 25 overall) – Muhammed Wilkerson

    Second round (57th overall) – Danny Watkins

    Fourth round (99th overall) – James Carpenter

    Fifth round (156th overall) – Taiwon Jones

    Fifth round (157rd overall) – Tyrod Taylor

    Sixth round (173th overall) – Owen Maricic

    Seventh round (209th overall) – Zane Taylor

    Seventh Round (242th overall) – Mana Silva
