So the SBNation official mock draft is going on now. I know many of us checked out after Sean submitted the Suh pick, but the blogger for the Seahawks blindsided conventional wisdom with the 6th overall pick. With Eric Berry still on the board, along with Spiller, Bulaga, and other talents for the OT/playmaker less Hawks, the pick came in and they went with....
Taylor Mays, S, Southern California
I'm mentioning this not because the Hawks blogger is an idiot. I'm saying it cause he's a genius. Don't forget the most important rule of draft season: GM'S ARE F**KING CRAZY! Peter Carroll would totally lobby to bring his boy to Seattle with him, and the logic behind the pick is completely legitimate. Is it a good pick? Of course not! But it could totally happen and, honestly, we should probably expect it. The top couple pick (including ours) will probably play out as we expect, but you just know that crazy stuff is going to happen, including the possibility of us using our 2nd rd pick to sneak back into the first round should one of our guys fall (and there's a very decent chance one of our guys will fall).
Draft fever! I love it!
