ROUND 1: DRE KIRKPATRICK (CB-Alabama)
Kirkpatrick is the prototype Pete Carroll corner with size and athletic ability who can face up against guys like Larry Fitzgerald and, presumably, Blackmon. It's largely been glossed over how Seattle did vs. QBs in the top half of the NFL last season. Big Ben had 298 yards passing, Matt Ryan had 291, Eli Manning had 420, and Tony Romo had 279 yards - but he largely relied on DeMarco Murray's rushing.
The Seahawks were fortunate that Michael Vick and Jay Cutler were injured in the season's second half, and they didn't really face any top-15 QBs. I don't value a LB in the top 12, because free agency is proving their worth doesn't warrant taking one so high. I assume Quinton Coples will be off the board with this pick. Yes, this would be a Browner upgrade, but Brandon would still get plenty of playing time in modern offenses.
ROUND 2: Dont'a Hightower (ILB-Alabama)
Many mocks have him going in the last few picks in the 1st round, but I'll take my chances and have him dropping to us.
ROUND 3: Cam Johnson (DE-Virginia)
Pass rusher that matches Pete's size requirement characteristics.
ROUND 4: Nick Toon (WR-Wisconsin)
Size, good speed, NFL pedigree being Al Toon's son. Big in the red zone for the Badgers in '11.
ROUND 6: Bobby Rainey (RB-Western Kentucky)
Piled up great stats, catching and running threat. Darren Sproles type.
ROUND 7: Josh Chichester (TE-Louisville)
6'7 tight end. Project fitting the copycat league with Jimmy Graham success.
