The media hates the Hawks draft but I love it. Seattle's D will be top 5 next year. Hell, I wouldn't be suprised if Seattle's and San Fran's D's are 1 adn 2 in the NFL. I loe the Irvin, Wagner and Turbin picks. Not sure about Wilson in the 3rd but if you step back and look at it, he could be a huge steal there. The guy is elite at pretty much everything except height. It didn't stop him at NC state or Wisconsin though. He would of been the 3rd pick in the draft, if not 2nd, if he was 6'1" or bigger. Irvin is basically Von Miller but more explosive and also very similar to Clay Matthews. I wouldn't be surprised if he has 10+ sacks this coming season. Wagner has elite athleticism and is a tackle machine. He is basically Luke Kuechly minus 3 inches, plus better in coverage and a better pass rusher. He will start from day one and improve this D. Turbin is a clone of Lynch. Lynch comes out, Turbin goes in and the O doesnt' skip a beat. He is also an incredible person. I highly suggest looking up his life story. Worth the read. Toomer the other LB they took has really good speed and athleticism. Think Zach Brown athleticism but actually good as a LB. He is raw but has everything you lok for. He very well could be a future stud.
Can't wait for physical, hard hitting battles between SF and Seattle. Could be epic. Hopefully for a long time.
