    would make ideal trading partner with Texans, have flexability to trade up or down (two 1st's & new regime) could see them trading down from #14 or up from #40.

    option one: Seahawks trading down

    14th selection worth 1100 points per draft pick value chart
    20th selection worth 850 a difference of 250
    81st (Houstons 3rd) is worth 185 so they would have to kick in their 4th, 62 as well to come out = 247

    depends on player available, have three in mind for Texans, Joe Haden, CB, Eric Barry, S & Earl Thomas S.

    option two: Seahawks trade up with early 2nd

    40th selection would have to include next years 1st plus 2nd this year I think that would be fair. Texans could address RB & CB in second, for instance lets just say Ryan Mathews, RB Fresno State (#40) & Donovan Warren, CB Michigan (#51)

    What does this have to do with Alex Gibbs???

    I would like Haden or Berry on the Texans defense. But, they have to fill roster spots and need those draft picks.

    had influence in Denver & Houston, think Carrol leans heavily on him :)

    I would be in favor of trade down myself, a top shelf safety would tempt me.

    Really? I guess he did handpick Brown. But Gibbs was known in Denver as a guy who eschewed high draft picks on his O-line. Pete Carroll isn't a NFL novice, and he probably is comfortable making his own picks and the decisions to move up or down in the draft. Don't see Gibbs as a draft day factor in any trades the Seahawks might make.

    Berry is one of my favorite players in this draft.

    If he is there at 14 I would trade a 2010 1st and 3rd, plus a 2011 3rd for Berry.

    Berry will be the best player in this draft. A future pro-bowler. IMHO

    Well, Carroll signed a 5 year, $33 million contracy with the Seahawks. I don't think he's going anywhere, anytime soon.

    Back to your thesis regarding Gibbs influence on Seahawks' draft day trades...I don't think so.
