    Seahawks 2009-2010 Discussion

    To start this thread off, we finally have some (limited as it may be) news about Walter Jones.

    The latest we’ve seen is Jones running wind sprints with trainers at the end of practice during organized team activities. Jones didn’t seem to favor his surgically repaired left knee during the workout, and appears to be on track to be ready for training camp.

    We’ve already detailed the number of Seahawks who have been able to return from microfracture surgery for Seattle. Another thing I think that works in Jones’ favor is his injury history. Jones has missed only a handful of games in his career, starting all 16, regular season games seven times during his 13-year stint in the NFL.

    And Jones is still a good athlete who is mobile for his size. So I suspect if he returns healthy that Jones can play for at least another two seasons, which is probably the reason the Hawks chose not to draft an offensive tackle in the first round.

    Running in a straight line isn't the hardest thing on your knee, but it's good to see he's moving around.

    Looks like Golden Tate had a good time after getting drafted haha

    Could be perfect for that elephant role. They are definitely thinking of some 3-4 wrinkles (Rob Rose is listed as a DE on the website and E.J. Wilson is a bigger DE in the mold of a 5-tech)...
    Word. That's pretty much what I said in the "draft grades" thread.

    I knew PC would remember him so I threw him there in the 7th round of the mock draft thread.

    Could be perfect for that elephant role. They are definitely thinking of some 3-4 wrinkles (Rob Rose is listed as a DE on the website and E.J. Wilson is a bigger DE in the mold of a 5-tech). I just think Mebane is the best player on the defense and he's best as a one-gap penetrator, not a nose or a 5.

    Two other things to note:
    -Jameson Konz is listed as a WR on the Seahawks website.
    -Walter Thurmond is also.

    I would think Thurmond is a mistake but it will be interesting to see what they do with Konzie. Ayyyyyyyyyyy.

    No, I'm not saying that I don't want McCoy on the Seahawks. I was saying that it kind of puzzled me since TE was one of our only positions of strength heading into the draft.

    McCoy should have been a 2nd or 3rd round pick, there's no questioning that and to get him in the 6th was a steal. This depth was ridiculously deep, and even in the 6th round players could be had that could make an impact. Although McCoy, Carlson could be one of the great TE duo's for years to come.

    Don't tell me you don't want this guy on our team. Especially as a 6th-rounder. the guy's a freaky athlete.

    I don't think they've extended Washington yet.

    As for the McCoy pick, I understand that he was a huge value, however this was a ridiculous draft and I just didn't see them taking any TE's in it. That said, they now have the flexibility to try to outmaneuver teams by mixing and matching their TE's.

    Just want to offer some perspective on Leon Washington...

    I watched every game of his career as a Jet and before last year, he was their MVP. Jet fans all screamed for him to get more carries over TJ, and I saw why - he was clearly quicker and more explosive than Jones (who is a good player in his own right). Point is, this guy is a GREAT player.

    He's very explosive, but he's also a tough inside runner. He's not the greatest receiver, but he can catch and he's powerful and quick once he has the ball. He's also a GREAT kickoff returner and will most likely be the main guy on opening day - I'd predict 2 KR touchdowns from him this season. Washington is NOT just a speed back.

    If he returns to his former self after the big injury, the Seahawks got a HUGE steal here.

    Does anyone know what his contract looks like? They had to extend him, right?

    The Hawks had themselves a nice lil draft, Earl Thomas is a stud at FS, I think thats where he belongs. Chanceller can help in run support. The addition of Washington and White is HUGE, because of the inability to nab a premier RB in the 1st 3rds. I'm real curious to see whats up with Konz, this kid is a freak, I want to see where Carrol uses him, I'd like to see if he can play some TE or H-Back.

    About McCoy - The 6th round is not where you consider team needs at all really. They took advantage of a guy falling and got a talented football player way lower than he should have gone. Great pick. I have a feeling he could develop into an excellent dual-threat TE. He has the frame to get bigger and improve as a blocker which will help LEON WASHINGTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think it's possible they were targeting Greg Hardy, who came off the board right before they picked Wilson.

    LoJack and co. are going to have to step up.

    I really like how the first two rounds went in getting Okung, Thomas, and Tate. I actually liked the majority of this draft, I just question the Wilson and McCoy picks. Wilson because he's not really a pass rusher and that is what I thought we were looking for at DE, and McCoy because I think that TE is the one area where we didn't need to spend a pick on a player.

    However the most important thing that came out of this draft in my opinion was seeing Carroll not reaching for his old USC players. This restored a lot of faith in the direction this team is heading to me.
    McCoy was a good value. I actually wish Carroll would have traded up for another of his USC players and gotten Everson Griffen at the top of the 4th- that was a need, and great value at that point. That's really the only thing that I didn't care for in this draft, and mainly only because we were so close to having him fall to us. And I've kept thinking about Jameson Konz, and I'm guessing he's going to be used like a leaner, faster, more athletic Leonard Weaver. Provided he makes the team, etc. As they say, he's certainly "got the tools."

    Two TE sets with McCoy and Carlson are gonna be pretty sick if you ask me.
