Bengals - Seahawks Draft Gambles



Its 2011 and the Seahawks need a young future QB.  So do the Bengals.  Several draft experts had the Seahawks pulling the trigger on Jake Locker with the 25th pick if he fail that far.  Another option was Andy Dalton.  When the 25th pick came, the Seahawks chose James Carpenter, an OT.  This would make two straight drafts that the Seahawks went with OT for their 1st overall pick.  The Bengals pounced on Dalton with the 35th pick.  Now with QB play barely around average, are the Seahawks regretting the move?  Lets take another look.  In 2010 both the Bengals and Seahawks were wanting to strengthen their secondary.  The Bengals own the 131st pick of the draft, and after passing on Taylor Mays they desperately needed help at Safety.  However they chose LB Muckelroy instead to add to a stable of LBers.  With the 133rd pick the Seahawks grabbed S Kam Chancellor.  Now in fairness to Muckelroy we aren't sure what he can do since he will miss this entire season injured.  The rest of our LB corps are beat up.  We still don't have the super star Saftey that Zimmer covets.  And all along, Chancellor is looking like a future Pro-Bowler in Seattle.  In retrospect did we drop the ball by letting Chancellor slip through our fingers while drafting for a position that we were already deep in?
