2010 NFL Gridiron Gab Mock Draft: #14 Seattle

The Seahawks are once again on the board, this time with the 14th pick. Their last pick, DT Gerald McCoy of Oklahoma proved a bit unpopular, but nobody’s perfect. but what is perfect is the Seahawks’ next pick..

And with the 14th pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select..

RB CJ Spiller, Clemson

Devon Heinen of SeahawksGab offers his optimism in his selection..

Seattle hasn’t had a running back eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in the past four seasons. The team doesn’t have its long-term feature back on its roster and Spiller fills that void perfectly. He’s an electric athlete that can catch out of the backfield and has game-changing speed and running skills. His selection will be the most important one the franchise has made since selecting Shaun Alexander in the first round of the 2000 N.F.L. Draft.

One scouts take of Spiller, whom he also has going to the Seahawks at this spot..

The Seahawks may have other needs that are more pressing than running back but they could find Clemson’s C.J. Spiller too temping to pass up. A versatile prospect with blazing speed who is capable of making an impact as a runner, receiver and return man, Spiller isn’t an every down workhorse but he is an explosive playmaker that defenses must account for at all times. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Spiller is a threat to take it the distance at any time from anywhere on the field and the success that fellow speed demon Chris Johnson is having in the NFL will surely work in Spiller’s favor on Draft Day. The addition of Spiller would finally give Seattle’s offense a punch and Pete Carroll certainly knows how to get the most out of a player with his skillset after coaching both Reggie Bush and Joe McKnight in college.

Let’s see what’s going on so far…
