Coffee and Cigarettes: Seahawks links for Monday


Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images

Aloha! Happy Monday, today I have included some links that scout players you all have asked me to look into. I didn't think I would come away with an opinion on a FB of all positions, but spend some time looking at video of Dan Vitale, FB out of Northwestern. I came away impressed with his ability to block, run, and especially catch. While I probably wouldn't burn anything but a late round pick on a FB, with Coleman dealing with his legal issues and Truckafoo limited in his abilities (at least on the offensive side of the ball), the kid is a little intriguing. Enjoy the links, and let me know any other players you'd like more information on. Have a great day!

And the links!
