I have entered into a mock draft over on my SB Nation home blog, Pride of Detroit, and have pleasantly been selected to draft for the Seahawks. Before I get to that, however, you might be wondering who the heck I am as this is my first ever post at the Field Gulls (I have just been approved to do some posting!).
My name is Christopher and I like to party. I am, obviously, first and foremost a Lions fan and have been for over ten years. Gives diehard a whole knew meaning, doesn't it? I live in Michigan, but will soon be moving to Chicago to attend a media arts academy for film and broadcasting. But enough about me and my boring life, let us get to the point of my post!
I have done some research on the Hawks and the possible draft picks that they might land, but would like to here from the heart of the team, the 12th man. The general consensus from my
days, hours of researching has drawn similar results. From what I've read, the biggest needs of this team are QB, OL and DL.
Matt Hasselbeck has been the subject of some criticism and seems like has pasted his prime. But with a shaky QB class this year (one NFC GM said he would never trust his franchise to any of the QB's this year), there might be better value drafting a different position of need in the first round. I, myself, am for the latter, with the idea that the big three QBs (Mallett, Locker, Newton)(and or maybe Gabbert) are off the board. What does the 12th man think?
P.S. Thank you for Burelson and Sims. I just lost it didn't I?
