NFL Draft Rumors: Could the Seahawks Take Andy Dalton Instead of Jake Locker?
NFL Draft Rumors Indicating that Seattle Seahawks have No Interest in Jake Locker
The QB position is definitely a need for the Seahawks entering the draft, however, no one is quite sure of their plans.
Many analysts believed that Jake Locker was the type of player that Pete Carroll would look to draft due to his familiarity with him and with Locker being a local product.
However, the NFL Draft process is very unpredictable and can change at any moment. Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, had this to say about the Seahawks' interest in Jake Locker,
"There haven't been any indications the Seahawks are high on him. Maybe that's all a ruse, a stern poker face of sorts, but if Seattle is really interested, it has done a pretty good job hiding it."
On the other hand, there are reports surfacing that Andy Dalton may be the QB that the Seahawks covet. Albert Breer stated on April 14th via his twitter page that he would have the Seahawks selecting Andy Dalton if he were in the process of working on a mock draft.
Sports Illustrated's Don Banks believes that the Seahawks are strongly considering Dalton and has them selecting Dalton in his latest mock draft.
ESPN's Trent Dilfer agreed as well, suggesting that Andy Dalton is a perfect fit for Seattle's offense.
Andy Dalton may not have the upside of a QB like Jake Locker, but it appears that Seattle wants to select the QB that is most ready for the NFL game and a pro-style offense. Unfortunately for Jake Locker, that QB is Andy Dalton.
