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.
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.
