Last Minute Draft Buzz

by: Michael Steffes

Oh we are so close to draft day. If only we just skip right over Friday and kick it into high gear tomorrow. Over at NFL DRAFT BLITZ, Chris Dunfee has released some of the info he is getting right before the big day hits. The Seahawks actually play a prominent role in his article.

Here is what he is hearing....

The Seahawks are one of teams showing interest in Ohio St. LB Larry Grant. The Giants are supposedly his primary suitor.

He also says the Seahawks are interested in Appalachian State WR Dexter Jackson, California TE Craig Stevens, Jordan Dizon LB Colorado, Jamie Silva S Boston College, San Diego State QB Kevin O’Connell, and Tennessee OL Eric Young.

Some of these names we have heard before, but some are new. Kevin O'Connell is interesting because Charlie Frye was mentoring him leading up to the combine. He is also the first late round QB linked to the Hawks, which makes a lot more sense. Eric Young would make for a heck of a road grader in the 4th. Dizon is a fairly high profile linebacker. He would be a solid pickup. Silva is the epitome of a Ruskell guy and would also infuse some youth to the safety group. Stevens is the best blocker of all the tight ends. Make a mental note, some of these guys may be Seahawks come Sunday night. I have updated the interest list for the last time, so keep it handy as the late rounds come around if you want a good idea who the Hawks may take.
