2012 NFL Mock Draft has Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin going in first two picks - Don Banks -
The Seahawks are out of the quarterback market in the draft, having signed free agent veteran Matt Flynn on Sunday night. With Robert Gallery released and Steve Hutchinson signing in Tennessee, DeCastro has emerged as an obvious candidate for the No. 12 slot. He's the kind of tough, physical player that Seattle line coach Tom Cable prefers, and as the top-rated guard prospect, he's a nice melding of value and draft slot.

Yankton Press & Dakotan > Sports > SDSU’s Moss Wows On ‘Pro Day’
From a purely numbers standpoint, Dale Moss certainly made a case for himself as a potential NFL Draft sleeper.

Notes from Pro Day " P & D Staff Blog
To the average person, terms like "3-cone drill" or "broad jump" or "agility drill" naturally won’t mean much. But to Dale Moss, the basketball-turned-football-star at South Dakota State, they mean everything. One of 11-12 players who competed at Thursday’s NFL Pro Day in Vermillion, Moss put together a performance that will be talked about for a long time and likely vaulted him into the NFL Draft discussion. Let’s examine his numbers:

2012 NFL draft pro day updates - Tony Pauline -
During the South Dakota State pro-day receiver Dale Moss certainly met, and even exceeded expectations. Moss measured 6 feet, 3.5 inches and 213 pounds, posted a vertical jump of 41.5 inches and broad jump of 10 feet, 10 inches. His forty time clocked at 4.45 seconds then Moss ran an amazingly fast three cone time of 6.32 seconds and 60 yard shuttle of 10.82 seconds. One scout at the workout mentioned in seven years of attending pro day and combine workouts Moss' three cone time was the fastest he's witnessed. Moss was then run through about a dozen pass routes and asked to catch the ball. What makes this story so intriguing is Moss was a member of the SDSU basketball team and never played college football until 2011. In his first and only season on the football field with the Jackrabbits he led the team in receiving with 61 receptions for 949 receiving yards and six touchdowns and Moss started just nine of 11 games. His upside is enormous and Moss worked his way into the draft's final day with his performance today.

The Luke Kuechly debate & Thursday notes " Seahawks Draft Blog
Luke Kuechly is the red-hot choice for Seattle if you believe the mock drafts. Todd McShay thinks so, stating, "Linebacker is among the Seahawks’ top needs, and Kuechly would immediately improve Seattle’s linebacker corps with his instincts, consistency, production and leadership."

Cosell Talks: It’s Not Always Luck : NFL Films Blog
When evaluating college players, and projecting them to the NFL, I often feel as if I can never watch enough snaps, enough throws, enough games to reach a conclusion with which I am comfortable. This is particularly true of quarterbacks.

2012 NFL draft countdown: Analyzing SN's No. 33 prospect, Central Florida CB Josh Robinson
Strengths: Robinson (5-10, 199, 4.31 40-yard dash) has the rare athleticism of a shutdown cornerback and is at his best in zone and off coverage. When he is focused on his technique and footwork, he is always in good position. And when his backpedal is compact, he can flip his hips to turn and run with receivers.

Russell Wilson, Wisconsin: There has been plenty of talk as to where record-breaking quarterbacks Kellen Moore (Boise State) and Case Keenum (Houston) might be rated if they were just a few inches taller. In reality, besides size, neither possesses the athleticism or arm strength scouts covet. Wilson, on the other hand, has the arm strength, mobility, accuracy, intangibles and production of a first-round pick, but at just 5-11, 204 pounds, he may still be available on Day 3.
