5/18: Rob Rang likes Seahawks’ fifth-round safety

May 18, 2011, 10:16 AM

–Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com writes that Mark LeGree, a free safety Seattle took in the fifth round, is a good fit for the Seahawks. Rang envisions LeGree playing deep and freeing up Earl Thomas to make plays around the line of scrimmage, a la Steelers Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu.

Here’s a highlight package of LeGree, who’s wearing No. 13 (and making all the plays, naturally):

–Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network lists the Seahawks along with the Raiders, Redskins and Bears as potential landing spots for wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, who still has a year left on his contract with the Bengals.

La Canfora: “Seattle, similarly, has taken chances on characters and has a need at wide receiver. Pete Carroll is not shy when it comes to taking on unique players, or guys who might scare other teams off. He considered signing Terrell Owens and Brandon Marshall a year ago.”

–Eric Edholm and Adam Anshell of Pro Football Weekly make the cases for a few team to be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks. Unfortunately, neither wants the Seahawks.

–Dave Miller of the National Football Post looks at the major storylines in Pac-12 football.

Miller: “Keith Price held his own filling in for Jake Locker last season when the Huskies traveled to Eugene to take on Oregon. With Chris Polk headlining a deep crop of running backs, the Huskies will be okay on offense. But will Nick Holt’s defense play consistently week after week?”

Miller doesn’t think Washington State will finish last in the conference, though he isn’t sure that will be enough for Paul Wulff to keep his job.
