Seattle needs to draft a QB next year. Read this to find out how the prospects are doing in their 2022 debuts
If you had asked me before this post, I would have been a hard pass on draft prospects. But your enthusiasm, analysis, and general wordsmithing have me hooked. Write what you want to write and I will continue to read it all.
Grayson McCall is so accurate.
Might be time to start keeping tabs on UNC’s Drake Maye. But he’s a 2024 prospect.
Devin Leary looking good. He’s my QB5.
I don't watch college football much anymore, but I'm always interested in your thoughts on players the Hawks might have their eyes on, or should. So, these college football articles are cool with me. Go Hawks.
You have been singing the same tune as me...even IF I disagreed, you lay it out as the way it is VS opinions, which I like.
I am optimistic the Hawks will Not be worse than 6-7 wins. Denver will likely be better than that but not likely more than 9 wins - after all, new coaches rarely get higher than the bottom tier of playoffs and THAT division IS legit. Thus I anticipate there will be two QBs (OSU's Stroud and Bama's Young) selected ahead of our first pic.
That said, I VERY much Do Not want us to trade up and lose valuable draft capital on an unnecessary upgrade VS who will be available at our natural selection spot. SO - I am looking to Will Levis (competitive AF - Joe Montana-like really) who maybe will be available with the Bronco's pic.
IF the Hawks do supremely suck, then go QB with the Early 2nd rounder - use premium capital on Game Wrecking/pass rushing interior DL plus an Absolute Stud of a receiver on a rookie contract will be needed.
I Really have been swayed by your Grayson McCall love-fest as well as Arkansas's KJ Jefferson - these guys are likely late second or 3rd rounders who can indeed make a difference. Boy, would it be cool to have a difference making QB at the end of the 2nd round or early 3rd AND 3 to 4 additional early draft difference-makers.
Chances are, we will need to replace Rashard Penny plus Bobby Wagner's replacement was never brought in. No matter how good a year Austin Blythe has, a Stud center is needed as long as Aaron Donald is on our schedule 2-3 times a year.
Too many needs to trade up. Teams that perpetually suck do that when so many draft opportunities like this one presents itself. With all the Seahawk's needs, keep building a Super Bowl worthy TEAM. Complete Teams win championships. Not QB heavy rosters with numerous holes.
Proof, Dan Marino - perhaps the league's best-ever QB talent - never hoisted a trophy. John Elway did not until they built a team around him. 'Matty Ice' in ATL - nope. Russ has only one ring and that was thanks to a top-5 all-time defense. Dan Fouts, Warren Moon, or a whole slew of primo QBs never sniffed the Lombardi.
But give Trent Dilfer an All-time Defense and a running attack and he gets a ring. Yes, Trent friggin' Dilfer's ring finger readily offers proof!
Please keep this coming. I don’t have the time to watch college football, but I am very interested....in all of it (but mostly QBs). I’ll check the box scores but those rarely tell the story.
Early candidate for the all-name team: Kavosiey Smoke - Kentucky RB
Watched Fresno state ( watched them a little last year 🤷🏻♂️) boggles my mind that chris Peterson chose Eason over Jake . Don’t know if Jake is an amazing NFL prospect but he’s a heck of a college QB
Who I’m watching today is Grayson ( my son is sending me the hacked feed ) Caleb and Addison , Young , Stroud . Usually don’t get excited about the other positions until the season is about half way and their story lines are developing
Looking forward to many more Saturday posts 😁🙌🏻
Being a Seahawks fan in NC, I've gotten pretty good at finding "alternative" sports streams. So today's slate is starting with NC State vs ECU. ECU has a WR who is looking great, and their QB is playing well. I'm sold on McCall so the Coastal Carolina game is the one I'm most excited for in a couple of hours here.
Man we don’t get college football too much down here so I’ll just rely on what you see.
But to me this whole college season is about a) is Will Anderson worth trading up for given the depth of the QB class, or b) is the QB class really that deep, and if not do you need to protect your ability to get one of the few even if that means Anderson is out of reach.
Bc a great QB on a rookie contract is pretty much a choice you have to take.
The McCall hype train rolls on...
Coastal Carolina 38 - Army 28
Passing: 12/17 - 174 yards - 3 TD's - 0 INT
Rushing: 6 carries, 27 yards, 1 TD, long 10 yards
Levis had a few highlights tonight. He looked good to me.
To my great surprise they are showing a college game here in São Paulo, Ohio State vs ND.
Gotta tell ya, I’m not at all impressed with CJ Stroud. Only one game and against a quality opponent, but he’s not very accurate, or is late on his throws, or both.
OMG, Will Anderson is a monster. Not seeing it with CJ Stroud. Young looks good but I would go with Anderson over Young after watching 1/2 of a football game. Richardson, Leary, Van Dyke, Jefferson all unimpressive to me today. Jaren Hall might need a closer look. Also liked what I saw out of Jurkovec today.
I don't pay much attention to college football, other than at draft time. IMO, it's the equivalent of baseball's minor leagues.
That said, I can't wait to see Walker, & really hope you're right about him!
Yep. So then the question becomes: do you trade up (assuming you’re not picking at #1) to go get him, and still find a legit 1st rd QB deep enough in the draft to get both, after whatever you had to give up for Anderson.
He seems like more of a consensus than anyone I can recall since perhaps Andrew Luck.
