Will Carroll select a QB in the 1st round?

Hopefully he'll take Fragile Bradford and Willis and Justin Smith can do their thing and knock him out for the rest of the season, leaving them old man Hasselback and Wallace again!

Hasselbeck will be the starter, if they can draft a QB in the first then he will sit and learn until they feel he is ready.

If a QB falls to 6 they will take a long hard look, rumor had it last year they considered Sanchez. However Cleveland, Buffalo or even Jacksonville could attempt to jump up to 5 if a QB is still on the board.
Rumors that Carroll wants to get Leinart from Arizona. Certainly, Leinart would be more NFL starter-ready than any draftee. If you belive that Hasselbeck is close to the end, this makes a lot of sense. Certainly, Leinart's familiarity with Carroll would make for a smooth fit.

Keep an eye on Warner's possible retirement. If Warner retires, doubtful that Arizona would let Leinart go. If Warner stays, maybe Arizona opts for getting a pick from Seattle for Leinart, and using it to draft a new back-up to develop behind Warner. Seattle has the pick power to make it happen.

Hard to imagine Arizona trading within the division. But then, it was hard for me to imagine Seattle getting Carroll as HC and Alex Gibbs as OL Coach.

Might as well start building for the future. Draft Clausen and have him chill behind Hasselbeck for a year or two.
Dude he's going defense first taylor mays and second he's going Colt mccoy!

The Seattle OL is in shambles so it's not inconceivable that they use both their 1st rounders on the OL...sort of like what has been kicked around here.. At one time Seattle had both Walter Jones and Steve Hutchinson playing the left side of the OL, and they were quite a force. They could go Davis or Okung and Iupati... and wouldn't that just suck for us.

Personally I don't think they will but you never know. If I had to guess right now, they will go QB with 1A and OT with 1B..

oh yeah, mays with their first 1st-rounder...i know that carroll was his head coach at usc but he cant be that stupid. that wouldnt be a reach but a disaster...even davis picks better!!!
and mccoy in the teens of the first??? i think this will depend on his combine results...at least.

#6 OT Anthony Davis
#14 FS Taylor Mays

This is where my money is at as of now.

Doubtful. By the time they pick the top 2 will be gone and there's a big drop off after that. It sounds like he wants a good running game first and his hires would indicate that. I could see them go OT, then Spiller. Boy would that piss some people here off.

Their first pick is #6. So you think both Clausen and Bradford go top five? Maybe, maybe not. If the Qbs do go top 5 then players like Berry and Okung are probably going to be available. I'd guess they go Okung which means if Spiller is there we get a shot at him because we pick 13th before they pick again at #14. If they come away with Okung and Spiller, you're right, I'm going to be pissed.
