Mortenson reports Dalton was #1 QB on our Draft Board



Initial tweet from Mort:

No question, Andy Dalton was Seahawks #1 QB but desire for rookie QB to sit 1- 2 years led to O-line picks; build depth/roster; not panic

 

My follow up:

@ So Dalton was the on the Seahawks draft board but Carpenter was higher overall on the draft board?

 

His reply:

@ I can tell you Carpenter seen as a starter; O-line huge source of frustration; Tom Cable new O-line coach loved him

 

and his follow up tweet:

Some questioned Carpenter's ability to grasp NFL complexities; Seahawks put Bama OT thru some challenging football mental tests. Did well.

 

Does this explain Dilfer's reaction?  Could our FO really be interested in a ginger?  To me this backs up the talk of building the trenches put forth prior to the draft and adds to the sentiment that our FO indeed has a plan and is drafting to meet their endstate.  Perhaps Dalton was #1 based on who they thought be available QB wise at 25 but did not consider him worthy of the pick.  It's hard to think they had him #1 overall of all the QBs.  Thoughts?
