    I was just looking at the Seahawks 2010 draft where they got Thomas and Chancellor. Say we draft Ha Ha in round 1 and Buchananon is there in round 2... Would you double up knowing that our safety spot is effectively set for at least the next 4 years?

    Just a thought.

    Ummmm we need more help than just safety. We need a CB. Tillman is likely done after this season.

    A young DL or two would be nice and a LB at somepoint as well please

    I could see Fuller then someone else in the second round. Fuller could then perhaps go back to CB depending on FA and how Peanut fares and if Conte recovers/improves his game.

    We do, but I would not use the first two on safety. Get a good one early and a capable one late.

    DB is the teams biggest short and longterm weakness. doubling up on S wouldn't be a horrid idea, but I think they don't like this S class enough to do it, if it went anything like what the OP said it would be S and CB to play S for at least a year 2.

    Tillman is a clear starter at CB this year. He could play out 2014 and we could sign/draft a replacement before the 2015 season.

    There is no clear starter at either Safety spot this year. Mundy is a question mark and hasn't done much throughout his career, Conte is injured, and if Jennings, McCray, Steltz, and Martin see the field at Safety then we're in trouble.

    Safety is a far bigger need than at CB and at DL for that matter.

    I agree. But would I put it past Emery to go.....

    1. Fuller (cb/s)
    2. Joyner (cb/s)

    No I wouldn't. Hell, I don't put anything past him he could go punter/longsnapper in 1 and 2.

    It would be intriguing to see Pryor/Ward in 1 and 2 but I doubt that will happen and don't think that is the best option for our team.

    If we can manage Pryor/Haha 1-2 maybe... But unlikely. Still not sold on going safety 1-2
