Of all the teams with high picks in this year’s NFL draft there is one that the NFL gambling experts are having a tough time pin down in regards to the position or player the team is most likely to take. The teams picking in the top ten are picking in those spots for a reason: they’re terrible. And as such most very clearly defined needs when it comes to improving in the NFL betting action this fall; all except for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks could make things very interesting when their turn is called to make their first pick in the NFL draft as no one is really quite sure what they’re going to do. Mock drafts on online betting sites are all over the board regarding what player the Hawks will take. Muddying the waters further is the fact that team has a new head coach in Pete Carroll, who’s been out of the NFL betting competition for years, and no one knows what type of player he’d like to add to this team before the 2010 NFL wagering season begins.
One need that everyone can agree on for Seattle is dominant O-line. The Seahawks have a large void in this area of their game. Russell Okung of Oklahoma State or Bryan Bulaga of Iowa would both be good fits here and seem to be surefire NFL betting stars. But both could also already be snapped up hungry football betting opponents by the time the #6 pick rolls around. There are other OTs that grade out as 1st round picks in the NFL draft but maybe not high enough to be taken at #6.
It’s also likely that Carroll, who has a penchant for speed merchants, could take a flyer on ‘game-breaker’ like CJ Spiller, a bit of wild card, according to some NFL gambling experts, but one that has huge upside potential. And don’t forget the ‘Hawks have the #14 pick as well and could end up addressing both of the aforementioned needs depending on who’s available and when.
