He met him on his visit here before the draft and wanted to become a Hawk badly.

According to Rotoworld - The Seahawks took Michael becuase he was their highest rated player on their board. Not a bad strategy. Also they mentioned that the fact that Lynch's guaranteed money runs out in 2014 which gives them flexibility in the future.

I'm not crazy about the pick right now but I like the prospect and I like that our team is at the point where we can take the best player on our board regardless of position.

It's a luxury pick guys.

The ONLY weakness this team has is OLB (Carroll doesn't appear to want to draft these guys early and Ogeltree was the only decent prospect on board in the first 2 rounds).

You could argue DT but we picked up some fillers in free agency and just drafted a pass rush specialist with the 3rd.

Michaels from what I've seen (limited) throughout college was a great back. His attitude concerns caused him to drop but there is no doubt he has 1st round talent. It's not a reach by any means and Michaels does more than 1 thing:

1) Backup if Lynch goes down. Turbin played well, but Michaels is the better prospect.
2) Kick Returner, don't want Harvin doing kick AND punt.
3) Future successor to Lynch, Turbin again is great, but when talking prospect and athletic talent, Michaels is superior.
4) ANOTHER dynamic punch in the backfield. You have to gameplan for Harvin, Wilson, Tate (becoming more of that threat), Lynch, Michaels.

Last and most importantly if you've read this far, I'll save you the scripted crap I wrote above that is obvious.

Michaels fits this scheme. He has great vision and amazing burst if you watched any of his college play. He can GREATLY take advantage of a ZBS style offensive line which, oh SCHUCKS, we have the #1 offensive ZBS coach in the NFL right now.

Don't be surprised if Lynch is gone in 2 years and Michaels is putting up 1,000+ yards and 10 TDs and NFL/ESPN is gushing over him.

I had a VERY funny feeling Seattle would go RB or QB (own reasons for QB) and no surprise. Expect day 3 to be full of OLB/S/CB and OL.

And there goes Allen. I hope Michael works out.


Keenan Allen will bust. Guy has barely any burst, is not a great speed demon, and lacks skills as a possession receiver.

He's Ted Ginn Jr. without speed, mark my words. I for the love of God did not want Seattle to draft ANY of the WRs in this class. Even the best one Tavon Austin is a midget and will get DESTROYED over the middle which is the only position he can reliably play. Patterson is FAR too raw, Allen (above), and Hunter has zero route running ability or instinct for the ball.

Turbin is also going to always be the COP back. He is never going to become the #1 back and he was never expected to be.

Pete said that Golden Tate is the punt returner until somebody outplays him.

I'd like to see Turbin put in a bit more time in the weight room on his lower body. Upper body strength is no doubt fine (lol), but he appears to be able to beef up his legs a bit more. Would love it if he tacked on an additional 20 pounds so he could be a future replacement for Michael Robinson. Michael would be the main back in the future, Turbin would probably still have very solid speed @ 240 and we could add a change of pace back in some future draft in the middle rounds. This is all assuming Christine Michael works out and keeps his character concerns in check.

Turbin could do with some lower leg strength but I don't want him to replace Mike Rob. I like him in his current role, especially as I forsee a Michael-Turbin lineup for the future. He could really develop into COP back role.

I am not worried about Michael's character concerns in Seattle. Everybody straightens up on this team.

I told SoS this before, I think the only back more talented than Michael in this class is a healthy Lattimore. However, it is a bit of a head scratcher. Seems like they're indicating Lynch isn't going to be around for more than another year or two.

Im not thrilled with the pick but ive learnt to have faith in JS and PC. They know what they are doing and know a lot more than us fans. I wasnt happy with the first 3 picks last year and look how they turned out. Lynch might not have long left, who knows? Especially if he goes down this season, we would still have a good running game. go hawks!

Sounds like a good pu for the run option scheme? I don't remeber Turbin involed in that either.

Also knows the 12th man. Laughing

Not to mention we ran on 55% of our offensive plays last year, high clip in the league. A big bruising back like Lynch with his back issues really isn't going to last forever. We saw what happened with Alexander when he hit his peak and just fell off a cliff. You have no idea when that might happen to Lynch with the way he carries the rock, and for a team that is predicated on the run, you have to have a backup plan.

I can definitely see why people might be upset considering neither of these first 2 picks are likely going to start and that's kinda what you look for in the draft. With that said, the team is doing a great job identifying the areas of the team that could easily be weaknesses with just one injury, and they're crossing their T's.

I tried to echo pre-draft that we wouldn't draft for need. WLB was never likely to be selected with the first 2 picks. OLine would've been nice, but for all we know the team could be VERY high on Sweezy's development (not saying I like that, but whatever).

Though I will say the Jordan Hill selection looks like a need reach...


If Lynch goes down then this pick was smart. Unfortunately, to make it smart it means the Lynch re-signing would've been a mistake.


Marshawn doesn't need to go down to make the pick smart. Is drafting Russell Wilson 'smart' only because Matt Flynn got injured during pre-season and Russell Wilson was the starter by default and ended up being impressive?

Christine Michael is great insurance at a very important position to the team. Michael was a BPA selection at that point in the draft. That's why it was a smart pick. Let the man show what he can do before calling it a bad choice.

Also, remember how powerful the two-headed attack was in Carolina with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Seattle may just have that with Marshawn and Christine.


Honestly?

So in your analogy Michael is Russel Wilson and Flynn is Lynch?

Really? That passes for acceptable logic in your opinion?

Alright, we'll use your analogy but we have to tweak it to make Flynn paid as one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and actually be one of the most productive, and possibly best quarterbacks in the NFL (since he's Lynch now apparently). We also have to make RW a 2nd round pick rather than a 3rd and assume that he's actually playing a lower value position like RB rather than the most important position on the field QB.

Once we do that, your analogy is perfect.

I have mixed feeling about this pick. RB was one of the spots where we had the least amount of need and I thought there were other positions that could have been upgraded ahead of RB. But, I do like that the FO is willing to put their logic out there, they have drafted well enough to earn that respect. If he was their highest rated player still on the board then I don't have a huge problem there, because as others have mentioned, Lynch is going to have injury concerns at some point due to his collision based running style. Plus his large contract may make him a target for a salary cut at some point. I still don't love the pick, but we'll see how the rest of the draft plays out.

RB is not a need but if you think a player is special you take him regardless of need imo. I have faith in our FO. Michael is definitely an elite level athlete.
