2013 NFL Scouting: NFC West Team Needs
We started the review of all 32 NFL teams' needs in the AFC North with the Super Bowl Champions, and now we'll end it with the NFC West and the NFC Champion 49ers.

2013 NFL Draft: Jonathan Cyprien Scouting Report
Jonathan Cyprien is one of the most dynamic, exciting prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft. He hails from Florida International University, so before the Senior Bowl, not many people were talking about him.

Sticking up for ‘draft entertainment’ & Vance McDonald tape " Seahawks Draft Blog
Mike Mayock is kind of the thinking man’s Mel Kiper. They both have great presence on the TV, make for terrific entertainment at this time of year and they also seem to do a lot of conference calls. While Kiper relies on sheer enthusiasm, Mayock gets into detail and reels off a series of catchphrases (sneaky athletic, quicker than fast, dancing bear etc). Personally, I think both do a great job. The draft is taken far too seriously these days and people like Kiper get chastised for basically doing what he’s always done — put a face to the coverage. Good for him.

The Postons ran Professional Sports Planning, though within the last year, Kevin has branched off with his own agency called Deal." Also: Sherman fully supports the move.

Scouting the OGs: Kyle Long, Oregon |
After leaving Florida State (baseball scholarship) for academic reasons, Kyle Long began his college football career at Saddleback College in 2010. Much like his Hall of Fame father (Howie) and current NFL star brother (Chris), Kyle started his collegiate career on the defensive line. It wasn’t until 2011 that Kyle made the switch to the offensive line, and after one year of JUCO ball he transferred to Oregon to join Chip Kelly’s offensive machine. During the 2012 season, Kyle Long started at both tackle and guard. His NFL career will likely be at the guard position.
