Just a wild guess: cause he's a head case with character issues who's also a cancer in the locker room and will require one HUGE contract once he gets to Seattle, in addition to the draft pick he will cost them. Then when he arrives, he will no longer be motivated to play for a big contract, meaning that Seattle will have wasted time, money, and draft picks.
This & the 49ers will be VERY fortunate if Spiller is still on the board at 13. If he falls history has shown a team WILL move up to grab a top ten talent.
On a side note anyone who mentions rb's being a dime a dozen in reguards to Spiller is a f***ing moron. He is a special, special player, the man can turn the tables of any game with one touch.
He's very special, but history also shows that RBs of his size ALWAYS tend to fall to the late 'teens-twenties' in the first round (Chris Johnson, DeAngelo Williams, Felix Jones).
You also have to remember that as much as C.J. is talented, spending #13th spot money + Signing bonuses to a backup RB/KR is a bit of a turn-off. I'd rather take Trent Williams and just pray Seattle doesn't nab Spiller (or that they trade for Marshall so they'll be forced to get a 'need' at #14, giving us Spiller at #17), cause I don't see New York or Miami giving a damn about Spiller (they have too many defensive needs) before the #17 spot.
We're gonna get some steals either way, count on it.
