I don't think they take Crabtree I still wouldn't rule it out though. Trading down would probally be best if possible and take a RB or secondary help, imo.

They draft a LT, they have to cut Walter Jones while he still have some tread left! (No way they paying $10 million a year for a guard, and Sean Locklear is a good starting RT)
No way they draft Curry, they already have a ton of money tied up to LB Lofa and Leroy Hill.
They just traded for Corey Redding, and spent a 1st rounder on Jackson last year, so DE should be out of the picture.
That leaves QB, RB, WR, DT, DB! They went out sign T.J. Housh and gave up a first round pick for Branch so adding Crabtree means that they would need to cut Branch (tap a cap hit).
No RB or DB appears top 5 talent so you are left with Sanchez and Raji. A young QB to groom sound a lot better than a NT!
The team first choice should be to trade down, if not if he is on the board they have to go with Sanchez!
The thing is, adding Crabtree would a) Give them a legit #1 for years to come b) improve the play of Hasselbeck c) Provide the next QB they decide to develop - not seneca wallace - with a huuuuggee weapon to aid his development.
TRUE.... years to come and im with you man.

one would have to speculate, knowing TR, that crabtree and sanchez are out (guys that would have to sit on the bench almost like a redshirt nfl season for 2009).
IF curry isnt there.... i have no clue who we are taking at that spot biased on TR's quote.... monroe? crab? sanchez?
we will see in a few hours.
Michael Crabtree reportedly gave off a diva like attitude during his visit to Rams Park, and has been eliminated from contention to be picked No. 2 overall.
There's got to be something to the "diva attitude" because this is the second time we've heard it. The Browns allegedly soured on Crabtree for the same thing. Crabtree's ego is more concerning than his foot at this point.

Solid pick up by the Seahawks....and whoever told me I was crazy to want to trade in the late first for DHB, and hed still be there in the 2nd round......eat your words now.
just wanted to say that i was the one that said monroe first... then later in this blog i said curry. All along i said they wouldnt pick crabtree. **
**although i admit it didnt take a rocket scientist to figure this out :P
