Analyst: Draft is deep at Seahawks’ top need
By 710Sports.com staff
Draft analyst seem to be in agreement that this year’s crop of prospects is the best in recent memory. Opinions differ, though, as to which positions are the deepest.
Russ Lande of the National Football Post joined 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Bob and Groz” Wednesday for a draft discussion, and offensive line was the first position he mentioned.
“I don’t think they’re going to use a first-round pick on anybody like that,” Lande said of the Seahawks, who hold the final pick in the first round, “but I think when you get into that second or third round I think there’s some really good football players.”
Lande mentioned UCLA’s Xavier Su’a-Filo and Mississippi State’s Gabe Jackson as two of the best guards that are expected to be drafted in that range. As it stands now, Seattle doesn’t have a third-round pick, having traded it to Minnesota in the Percy Harvin deal.
