2003 Draft is done.

The 2003 NFL draft is over and it's time for fans and writers to have their say. The players will have their say beginning in May and all the way through January if they are lucky. The Seattle Seahawks drafted nine total players, following an analysis of the players drafted on the second ay.

Seneca    Wallace

ROUND 4, PICK 13, OVERALL PICK 110

QB 5-11, 196 Iowa State

Was a two-year starter at Iowa State after playing one year at Sacramento Junior College.

Originally intended to play for Oregon State but transferred to Sacramento Junior College to be closer to his mom after she became ill.

 

Positives: Has a quick, overhand delivery and can throw on the run.  Has NFL arm strength and quick feet.

Negative: Small for his position. Has a tendency to force throws. Doesn't always read coverage's well and has hot-and-cold streaks as a passer.

 

Hawk Outlook:  Will have to battle for third string quarterback spot. Jeff Kelly listed as number three behind Hasselbeck and Dilfer. Has great athleticism (4.5 40-yard dash, 38-inch vertical leap), which should make it hard for coaches to make a quick decision on him. Practice an option.

 

 

Solomon Bates

ROUND 4, PICK 38, OVERALL PICK 135
LB 6-1, 260 Arizona State

Had a termantous career at ASU. Was a freshman starter until an injury caused him to miss last three games.

Started every game sophomore and junior year. Shared starting spot senior year.

 

Positives:  He has the strength, size speed and knowledge to play inside linebacker.

Negatives: Many believe he is overweight for his position.

Hawk Outlook:  Would have to show coaches he is the real deal. D.D Lewis and Keith Miller stand in his way.

 

 

Chris Davis

Round 5, Pick 30, Overall 165

FB 5-11 235 Syracuse

Played in every game junior season and started nine of 12 games senior season.

Positives: Has good speed and size.

Negatives: Does not have much experience at position.

Hawk Outlook:  Good bet to make team as a special team contributor.

 

 

Rashad Moore

ROUND 6, PICK 10, OVERALL PICK 183
DT 6-3, 324 TENNESSEE

Started 12 games senior year including Peach Bowl. First three years shared time with two players that were drafted in first round in 01. Had knee scoped in December and did not participate in positional workouts at combine.

Positives: Has good athletic ability, first-step quickness, change of direction and football intelligence.  Moves well laterally and can slip and avoid blockers. Displays pretty good-levered strength.

Negatives:   Many critics believe he has gotten too heavy for his size. Has not shown a quick burst to make plays as a pass rusher

Hawks Outlook: If he can show some potential as a run stopper, he is a keeper.

 

Joshua "Josh" Brown

ROUND 7, PICK 8, OVERALL PICK 222

K 6-6 200 Nebraska

Big strong kicker who is strong and very athletic. Has shown ability to drive deep kickoffs.

All-Big Twelve Conference first-team selection by the league's coaches and the Kansas City Star, adding second-team honors from the Associated Press.

Hawk Outlook: Unless he is unable to make the transition between college and pro the job should be his.

 

Lawrence "Taco" Wallace

ROUND 7, PICK 10, OVERALL PICK 224

WR. 6-1 190 Kansas State

Caught 39 passes for 704 yards and 5 touchdowns senior year. Was the teams leading receiver in a 10-2 season.

Positives: Critics say Wallace has speed to spread defenses.

Hawk Outlook:  Koren Robinson, Darrel Jackson and Bobby Engram are also solid. If he is to make the team it will be on special teams and supplanting James Williams.
