I usually only do two of these a year, and it’s more of an exercise ion trying to figure out who the Seahawks are going to select in the first round.

So with Seattle not holding a first round pick, I paid less attention to the process than I usually do. But here’s my final mock draft that was published in the print product today.

1. KANSAS CITY: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
2. JACKSONVILLE: Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
3. OAKLAND: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

7. ARIZONA: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
8. BUFFALO: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
9. N.Y. JETS: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
10. TENNESSEE: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
11. SAN DIEGO: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
12. MIAMI: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
13. N.Y. JETS (from Tampa Bay): Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
14. CAROLINA: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
15. NEW ORLEANS: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU
16. ST. LOUIS: Kenny Vaccaro, FS, Texas
17. PITTSBURGH: Jarvis Jones, DE, Georgia
18. DALLAS: Star Lotlelei, DT, Utah
19. N.Y. GIANTS: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama
20. CHICAGO: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
21. CINCINNATI: Eric Reid, FS, LSU
22. ST. LOUIS (from Washington): Alec Ogletree, LB,Georgia
23. MINNESOTA: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
24. INDIANAPOLIS: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
25. MINNESOTA (from Seattle): Manti Te’o, ILB, Notre Dame
26. GREEN BAY: Matt Elam, SS, Florida
27. HOUSTON: Robert Woods, WR, USC
28. DENVER: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

  1. One cool thing is that Harvin isn’t too much older than most of those guys.

  2. yankinta says:

    My only one WISH is we trade some picks for 2014 picks….

    we don’t have roster spots for all these players that we may draft this year. Next year’s draft class will be one of the strongest in the past few year.

  3. HawkFromDay1 says:

    You mean we could have had Manti Te’o?! Then thank goodness we traded that pick.

    Nice looking mock Eric.

    I want to see Tavon Austin go to the Lions and play with Calvin Johnson – would be like Megatron and Bumblebee.

  4. bird_spit says:

    I want to see them find another browner in the draft, tall, long, feisty CB. I think they need to replace browner if he demands to be paid.

    Darius Slay 2nd round or David Amerson 5th rd.

  5. FleaFlicker says:

    Yankinta, don’t despair. We’ve got 72 hours for the front office to wheel and deal.

    BTW, was hoping for your draft projection so I could do some learning. ;-)

    To quote RW: “Go Hawks!”

  6. Bobby, I agree with that sentiment entirely. That being said, my only concern is his history with migraines and injuries.

  7. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    2nd kyle long OT/OG
    3rd Tyrann Mathieu CB
    4th brandon williams DT
    5th jelani jenkins WLB
    5th Tharold Simon CB
    6th Jordan Mills, OT
    7th mark harrison WR

    Not much time to spend on this,i doubt they would take both mathieu and jenkins but i bet one makes the team. brandon williams could be a force in the middle and eventually replace Red or Mebane.
    i like long and mills for one reason if the can free up cap space by replacing the RG/RT oh and how could you not like the bloodlines in long.
    same with simon and mathieu winfield and browners replacements

  8. I was looking at Carroll taking a chance on Mark Harrison with one of those 7th rounders. He’s a size/speed guy but very stiff.

  9. “I want to see them find another browner in the draft, tall, long, feisty CB.”

    You don’t wish for much do you? Lol. Brandon Browner has to be, perhaps the most unique player I have ever seen at the CB position. He doesn’t even look like a CB. And he plays the position with a physical presence that is very rare; it’s like watching Jack Lambert play CB.

    “Another Browner” probably won’t come along for a long time is my guess.

  10. grizindabox24 says:

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 17s
    Odd fact for odd draft: No. 2 overall pick will earn more than the No. 1 pick due to no state tax in Florida. So 2 not so bad.

  11. FleaFlicker,, lol thank you for that. :)

    As per your request, here it is, my wish list/draft projection.

    Round 2 : Jessie Williams DT, ALABAMA
    Round 3 : Trade for 2014 2nd round pick
    Round 4 : Trade for 2014 3rd round pick
    Round 5 : Chase Thomas, LB, Standford
    Round 6 : Everett Dawkins, DT, Florida State
    Round 7 : Denard Robinson, RB/WR/KR, Michigan
    Round 7 : Levine Toiolo, TE, Stanford
    Round 7 : BJ Daniel, QB, South Florida U
    Round 7 : Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State

  12. baskcctrac says:

    Round 2: Kyle Long, OT, Oregon
    Round 3: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
    Round 4: Jordan Mills, OT, Louisiana Tech
    Round 5: Latavius Murray, RB, Central Florida
    Round 5: Matt Scott, QB, Arizona
    Round 6: Charles Johnson, WR, Grand Valley State
    Round 7: Marques Wilson, WR, Washington State
    Round 7: Nicholas Williams, DT, Samford
    Round 7: Braden Wilson, FB, Kansas St.
    Round 7: Will Compton, LB, Nebraska

  13. bird_spit says:

    Sekolah said ““Another Browner” probably won’t come along for a long time is my guess.”

    I agree, but I feel Browner will be the one left with out a chair once the contracts get signed. He is also up in age.

    Don’t get me wrong, cause I think Browner is absolutely a great asset. All of the money that will be needed to keep this secondary together would starve other aspect of the game. Something will give..and they need to plan on it.

  14. raymaines says:

    I’m liking Yankinta’s draft: two DT’s, a LB, TE, WR and two extra picks next year. Cool!

  15. yankinta says:

    Thanks Raymaines,,, would that be Great??!! :)

  16. yankinta says:

    Thanks Raymaines,,, wouldn’t that be Great??!! :)

  17. I’d be pretty surprised (happily) if Sylvester Williams was available at 56. More likely Hankins or Short would be the best available DT’s.

  18. For my mock, I was considering just listing 10 guys I think they might pick in the 2nd round. But then, I’d probably be just as wrong. ;-)

    (and for all you guys who are now considering stealing this idea. well, you know that’s cheatin!)

  19. Might be better to pick 10 guys you think they might draft in the 5th round Stevos.

  20. Dukeshire says:


    You have Ale*c* Ogletree listed as a Longhorn; he’s a Bulldog.

  21. I too have a bunch of guys identified that might fit at #56. In no particular order…..

    DT – Jonathon Hankins, Kawann Short.
    OLB – Sio Moore, Arthur Brown, Jamie Collins
    TE – Travis Kelece, Zach Ertz (both probably long gone by 56)
    OT – Kyle Long or Terron Armstead, Justin Pugh
    OG – Larry Warford

    I really like Kevin Minter at 56 too, but I don`t think he will be available or that we would spend a high pick on an ILB.

  22. Anyone who nails 2 or more this year should be given some kind of special reward.

  23. True – predicting a JS / PC Seahawk draft is an impossible task.

    Last year I nailed Bobby Wagner and Bruce Irvin, but I had them both as 3rd round options, not 1st and 2nd rounders.

  24. doubledink says:

    I’m working on a first round mock that provides 9 different categories of scoring points. Highest total wins. It will be a monster to grade if I can’t create formulas in Excel but for an office pool setting it should be manageable.
    I did a Seahawk specific draft one year but got little interest from coworkers. I did nail Kam and one other pick that year.

  25. freedom_X says:

    I’m hoping for Sylvester Williams in the 2nd as well, only because 1 or 2 draftnik sources had him ranked as a 2nd-3rd round talent. But most of the mock drafts have him as a mid-1st to mid-2nd round pick.

  26. Round 2: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas
    Round 3: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    Round 4: Sean Porter, LB, Texas A&M
    Round 5: Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
    Round 5: Vinston Painter, OT, Virginia Tech
    Round 6: Nicholas Williams, DT, Samford
    Round 7: Lawrence Okoye, DT, Nowhereville
    Round 7: Kwame Geathers, DT, Georgia
    Round 7: Brett Maher, K, Nebraska
    Round 7: Eric Martin, LB, Nebraska

  27. Dukeshire says:

    I finally agree with pabuwal, 100%.

  28. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    bobby you did the same as i did. no TE, i am thinking i missed there.
