Mock Draft Among Blogs: Pick 6

The Seattle Seahawks are on the clock now, and their pick is in:

In the first year sans Mike Holmgren, the Seattle Seahawks went 5-11 and fired Jim Mora and opted to hire USC coach Pete Carroll. It is hard to believe Holmgren was in Seattle from 1999-2008. During that time, the Seahawks made the playoffs five times and won the NFC in 2005.

A majority of those wins were thanks, in part, to quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. But Hasselbeck is 34 and is coming off two consecutive season in which he has dealt with an injury.

Already, NoLogoNeeded.com’s Mock Draft Among Blogs has had a offensive tackle run.

Johnny Peel from Dave Krieg’s Strike Beard is representing the Seahawks. His options were to go with a quarterback or continue to build on the Seahawks defense. If you remember last season, the Seahawks also were picking in front of Cleveland and they took Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry fourth.

So what might Seattle do?

With the sixth pick in the 2010 Mock Draft Among Blogs, the Seattle Seahawks select:


The Seattle Seahawks have had a strange history at the quarterback position. The best QBs in franchise history were a sixth-round pick (Matt Hasselbeck), and two undrafted free agents (Dave Krieg and Jim Zorn), while the team has had terrible fortune spending high draft picks on quarterbacks. Seattle has used a third-round pick or higher on a QB four times in franchise history, and they are a true procession of failures: Dan McGwire, Rick Mirer, Brock Huard and David Greene. Combined NFL record as starting QBs? 26-51.

However, history also tells us that every season Seattle has had made the playoffs with 10+ wins, they had a Pro Bowl QB under center (Krieg in ’84, Hasselbeck in ’03, ’05 and ’07). It’s a cliche at this point that the NFL is a “quarterback’s league,” but Seattle’s descent into the league’s bottom tier has coincided with the rapid deterioration of Hasselbeck’s performance over the last two seasons.

Unfortunately, the Twelve Army can’t just sit back and hope Mike Teel becomes the next Hasselbeck or Krieg. Given that new coach Pete Carroll wants his own personal Troy Aikman, taking the top QB in this draft class is the obviously right call. Bradford is a gamble based on his shoulder issues and need to adjust to taking snaps from under center, but is a great value pick at #6. Bradford would also get to sit back and learn from Hasselbeck in his rookie year (which is also the final year of Hasselbeck’s contract), unless Beck gets injured or fails to improve on his pathetic performance in 2009.

Of course, we might give up the 6th overall pick to land Brandon Marshall, rendering everything I just wrote moot.
