"With the 127th overall pick of the 2010 NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks select ..." We'll find out the actual answer later this week, but it's time for the guys at NorthwestFootball.net, with additional help from staff alum Scott Eklund, to continue speculating how they think the team's draft will go. With the second go-round in the fourth round, pure speed becomes a priority.

TE Anthony McCoy, USC
-- This is a “Best Player Available” moment for the Seahawks. Obviously, they have other pressing needs, but McCoy is a great fit in Seattle’s system and Carroll knows what he brings to the table. He can block and is a great red zone target. He could combine with John Carlson to give Seattle one of the best one-two punches at tight end in the NFL. Even with the recent revelation that McCoy tested positive for marijuana, I think Carroll will feel confident that won’t be a problem once he gets him to Seattle.

RB Joe McKnight, USC –
Though he never lived up to the considerable hype at USC, McKnight did rebound for 1,014 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2009, and would add considerable speed and play-making ability to an offense that is severely lacking in both.

WR Jacoby Ford, Clemson --
The fastest man at the Combine, Ford has track speed that transfers well to the field – he’s got a ridiculous burst after the catch, and he can simply shred defensive backs in the open field. As he says, he’s a football player with track speed, but the other way around. He’s not a polished route runner just yet, but it might be a mistake to cast him as a Ted Ginn type who could never develop a sense of route complexity. He was Clemson’s leading receiver in 2009, earning second-team All-ACC, and he’s surprisingly willing to go over the middle. But to start in the NFL, Ford’s primary attribute will be that pure blinding speed which made him a national track champion. Over time, and with the right kind of tutoring, he could be a very dangerous option threat.
