WCG Mock Draft - Seattle Seahawks

DeSean Jackson
Wide Receiver
University of California
ANALYSIS: With this pick, I see the Seahawks going with a receiver (wide receiver or tight-end) or an o-lineman to start out as a back up, then take over in a few years when the vets finally retire. But when I was looking through the players already selected, I noticed that Jackson was still available. The reasonable part of my brain wanted to go with Dustin Keller with this pick, but my heart wanted me to go with Jackson. Jackson had a great Sophomore season, but didn't do as well his junior season. Many scouts have said he reminds them of Ted Ginn Jr. (I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing) but with better hands and a better route runner. He's a dynamic kick returner, although that's not what they really need, seeing as they still have Nate Burleson taking back kicks. The Hawk's don't have any huge needs, so they have the luxury of taking a risk on a talent like Jackson, who has huge upside. They really need an infusion of youth in their wide receiver core, with Branch, Engram and Burleson all getting up there in age. Other players they could take here: Dustin Keller, Kentwan Balmer, Gosder Cherilous, Sam Baker, Jonathan Stewart and Branden Albert.
