Aaron Curry? It's an A+


Obviously, I could not possibly be any happier about this pick. When you're interviewing people, you're supposed to be objective. Usually, it's pretty easy. But when I interviewed Curry for this...

Doug's Mock -- And in the seventh round (Pt. 2)...


Okay -- time for the Lightning Round. Gotta get some lunch and get ready to chat here, at FO, and at Falcon Insider. Coffee RULES! The last three sevenths: Bear Pascoe, TE, Fresno State. As much...

Doug’s Mock -- And in the seventh round (Pt. 1)...


For the final round, I'm sticking the last three picks on one post. However, the first seventh-rounder deserves a bit more detail. Mike Reilly, QB, Central Washington This is the guy who broke...

Doug’s Mock -- And in the sixth round...


In the late rounds, due diligence may be enough. Not every team is going to watch all the grainy film on all the sub-division players -- the Bengals, with their two or three scouts, won't be...

Doug’s Mock -- And in the fifth round...


When I came home from this year's Combine, I started putting together my list of players to interview. From Curry and Sanchez to a certain quarterback you'll hear more about very soon, I got just...

Doug’s Mock -- And in the fourth round...


For all the Ruskell-bashing that may happen, and valid or not as it may be, it's important to note that every general manager in every sport makes mistakes. There isn't a big brain that isn't...

Doug's Mock -- And in the third round...


Never mind the bollocks -- here's the offense! Certainly interesting that all four picks in our back-and-forth have been defensive players, but I'd imagine that John and I are both under the...

Doug's Mock -- And in the second round...


The idea behind these dueling mocks is obviously to take who we think Tim Ruskell would take, but I'm somewhat conflicted with my second-round selection. There are two safeties I'm looking at. One...

Doug's Mock -- And in the first round...


I'm going to do a Seahawks mock in stages over the next day or so between projects as time permits. When it comes to the later rounds, I might list 2 or 3 guys I think might be in the wheelhouse,...

Mike Mayock Loves Him Some Mark Sanchez...


...and why you should, too. Before I get going on this post, I should reveal two biases. I am of the opinion that Mike Mayock of the NFL Network is in the same class as Rob Rang of...

Patrick Chung: Oregon's Defensive Prodigy


Exclusive interview feature here. More on this guy over the weekend as I run a mock up the flagpole, but the vitals are as follows:   51 college starts at age 21. Played the rover position,...

Aaron Curry: Safe at Home


We're not in the habit of link-dumping at Field Gulls, and I'm not going to start here. I'm simply going to point out that I was fortunate enough to interview Aaron Curry last week for a Washington...

Eagles Nab Weaver


Per Adam Caplan of He'll make a base of $1.75 million, and incentives could push it up to $2.5 million. He was an odd fit here under Mora/Knapp, just as Duckett was the third wheel under...

Hmmm...Who's the Guy in the Middle?


via (Dean Legge) Yep -- that's the old scout to Mike Mayock's left, taking in Georgia's Pro Day. According to's Dean Legge, Stafford, Moreno, Mohamed Massaquoi and...

Why hasn't Leonard Weaver been signed?


Well, it could have something to do with this. From Harold Lewis, Weaver's agent, who wants his client to be paid like a tailback: "He's an excellent receiver, runner, and blocker. The fullback...

Seahawks Re-Sign Ray Willis


Seahawks re-sign utility offensive lineman Ray Willis.

Houshamazood: The Scouting Report


In lieu of tape-watching, which I wish I had time to do tonight on Seattle's newest receiver, I asked a friend for his take. Former NFL scout Tom Marino helped build the Greatest Show on Turf that...

The Cole Scouting Report


From my buddy Bill Huber at Packer Report. Try and contain your excitement... Cole is a career backup because he's at least OK at everything but doesn't excel at anything. He's good against the...

Clayton Spurns Hawks for Bucs


Pewter Report has the scoop -- the Bucs have re-signed receiver Michael Clayton to a new five-year contract. The interesting part of the story is that Clayton turned down more money from Seattle to...

Reggie Williams Busted for DWI, Pot

It's not enough to get busted for our Reginald ... whoa, no. No, best to get stopped on a DWI AND get caught with weed. On the opening day of free agency. And now the dream of Reggie catching...

Combine Notes


If you go to the WaPo Twitter feed, you'll see a link to an audio piece I did this afternoon with Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune about the changes in Seattle's coaching staff. Thanks to...

Crabtree Statement


He was just at the podium -- brief statement. No questions allowed. "I'm coming here today involving my injury report. It's an old injury, I've never had any pain in it. I will run my 40, then...


FO and WaPo stuff

I'm flying out of Indy tonight (Boo!), but feel free to check Sunday's events out on my Washington Post Twitter Feed. Also, here's Saturday's FO Combine Report. This morning, I'll be watching one...

Mora at the Podium


Line notes for now -- he just concluded his presser. More later when I have the transcript. The Seahawks are not starting from scratch -- to many good things have happened. He most enjoys the time...
