This was a pretty difficult choice. With the addition of TJ, wide receiver was no longer such a pressing need for the Seahawks. BJ Raji is a strong consideration, especially considering that a dominant DT would instantly upgrade the Seahawks defense. The signing of Colin Cole for 20 million, however, tells me that they probably aren't focusing on defensive tackle. We would have taken Curry here if he had fallen, even with the already high priced group of linebackers. His talent is just too great to pass up.

With all that said, the next biggest need for the Seahawks was a replacement for Walter Jones. At 35 years old, his play has definitely taken a hit recently, and everyone expects him to retire next year. Injury is already a concern, Monroe is ready to step in and take playing time ASAP. They would have preferred Smith, as he seems to have a little higher ceiling, and despite being a little more raw, would have had time to develop. With all that said, Monroe is a pretty strong candidate to replace Jones. He is a superb pass blocker, has great size and is incredibly athletic. He comes from a long line of successful offensive lineman from Virginia, so his chances for success are pretty high. He was the reason Albert started at LG throughout his time on the Virginia OL, and therefore projects to be even better than the Chiefs rookie standout
Nice pickup! But he's no Duane Brown...

I actually thought the Rams would have looked at WR since Holt is leaving, but I guess they thought #2 overall was too high to select crabtree. I would have gone with Smith over Monroe, but I don't think the falloff will be that much between the 2.

I just couldn't select Raji at #4. I have a strong disdain for highly touted defensive tackles. QBs and DTs are by far the biggest gambles in high round selections. Nearly 1/2 top 5 DTs is a bust.

I know Seattle has said they were hesitant to pick a top 5 OT because they wouldn't be as good as Walter Jones, but realistically, almost no one will be. No way would I consider Sanchez at #4

If someone considers Sanchez at #4 they should be fired on the spot.

With the 5th pick in the 2009 NFL draft the Cleveland Browns select:

Brian Orakpo DE/OLB from Texas

The Browns have several needs on both sides of the ball, but the defense is in dire need of a pass rush.

Other players considered: B.J. Raji, Malcom Jenkins and Andre Smith

Yeah im just messing. I know Andre Smith has done nothing but hurt his draft stock, but he is still a talented tackle who will IMO get drafted higher than he should. I took him #5 overall in the pre-combine mock for the Brownies.

I would expect the Bengals or Jags to grab him although Cincinnati has to be very intigued by Michael Crabtree's availability.

Super Mario?

In the other thread, could you put the pick number before the pick's name? It makes it easier for me to keep track of it in my spreadsheet.

It's nothing special. I was planning on going through and updating it with some of the post combine mocks this weekend. Right now, it's just got some early mock numbers in it. Let me know if you want it and I'll forward it to you.

I just need something where I can do a process of elimination. Hell, if I have time I might just make one myself. BlazingArrow has been quiet today, so I might find the time.
