NFL Mock Draft 2013: Seahawks Select USC QB Matt Barkley

As the 2012 NFL Draft dwindles away, all the pundits of the world have gathered their collective minds to start looking at next year's draft. Yes, next year's draft is already being prepared for and Sports Illustrated's Andrew Perloff has joined the fun with his 2013 Mock Draft.

And in it, Perloff has the Seattle Seahawks picking eighth and taking USC quarterback Matt Barkley.

Sound familiar?

Barkley has been considered by some as the no. 1 pick overall as well as being taken towards the end of the top 10. If he falls, former USC coach and current Seahawks coach Pete Carroll might not be able to pass on bringing him into the fold.

Here is what Perloff had to say about Barkley.

"Barkley has been compared to Andrew Luck for staying at USC even though he could have been a high selection in 2012, but he may get picked apart in a way Luck did not. Some people wonder if Barkley is big enough, and how much his outstanding receivers and the system at USC help him look good. Trojans QBs have not done well in the NFL lately, but if anyone can overlook that it's Pete Carroll."

The Seahawks will have a year to decide whether or not incumbent Tarvaris Jackson, free agent signee Matt Flynn or recently drafted rookie Russell Wilson can give them a reason to draft another position next year. But for now, there could be even more room at the position for another talent.

See you in 2013.

2013 NFL Mock Draft: The Seattle Seahawks Select Matt Barkley

This offseason the Seattle Seahawks addressed the QB position by signing free agent QB Matt Flynn, as well as drafting Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft.

As mock drafts begin to come out for the 2013 class, some still feel the Seahawks will be looking to fill a perceived hole at QB next April.

In the latest mock draft from The Big Lead, the Seahawks select USC QB Matt Barkley with the 4th overall pick.

4. Seahawks - Matt Barkley, QB, USC. Reunited with Pete Carroll. Matt Flynn's contract was only a 3-year deal. Barkley will be over-analyzed big-time this season.

While I agree that Matt Flynn's contract was set up in such a way that the 'Hawks could part ways easily and early, and know that Pete Carroll would love a reunion with Barkley - whom he recruited to and coached at USC, I'm just not convinced this is possible.

It just sees unrealistic at this point to think that Seattle will have a poor enough season to be drafting that high. Also, most experts feel that Barkley will be the number one overall pick in 2013, so it's a bit of a reach that he would even be available that late if the Seahawks did draft there.

Guess we'll find out in a few months just how plausible this scenario is.

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Kenjon Barner To Detroit Lions, Jordan Poyer To New England Patriots

There are two solid possibilities from the Pac-12 Northwestern schools that could get drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft next season. Kenjon Barner of the Oregon Ducks figures to be a ready fit for an NFL offense like LaMichael James. Jordan Poyer is likely to be the best cover corner in the Pac-12 for the Oregon St. Beavers.

Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation released his first mock for next season, and both these players are featured. Barner goes 28th to the Detroit Lions to become their feature back, while Poyer goes 29th to the New England Patriots.

28. Detroit Lions, Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon

Just what the Lions need, more speed in their offense.

29. New England Patriots, Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State

I like the decision to take a risk on Alfonzo Dennard, scourge of the Lincoln, NE, police department. Poyer adds a blue chip starter who plays aggressive.

NFL Mock Draft 2013: Seattle Seahawks Take Tyler Bray

The Seattle Seahawks have upgraded a lot of their team speed on defense. They still could afford to upgrade multiple parts of their team. One spot is quarterback, where the Seahawks might not be totally settled at the position. They don't yet quite know what they'd get out of their big free agent signing of Matt Flynn, and Tarvaris Jackson is hot and cold at the position.

Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation releases his mock draft, and it has the Seahawks taking Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Bray is a solid enough player, and could very well become one of the best quarterback prospects right with Matt Barkley and Tyler Wilson.

Pete Carroll took a Frankenstein approach to find a signal caller, sewing together a collection of mid-level guys. They finally find a legitimate franchise quarterback in 2013. Matt Flynn is nervous.
