INDIANAPOLIS -- Draft analyst Rob Rang is back with his best-case scenario for the Seahawks with the fourth overall choice in the 2009 draft.

Rob Rang: The best-case scenario for the Seahawks would be that Michael Crabtree works out and works out well, answers any questions they might have about that. That would be filling an immediate need for them. The same kind of scenario at offensive tackle. If Jason Smith is available, he makes a great deal of sense. Eugene Monroe as well.

And then Malcolm Jenkins, the cornerback from Ohio State. If he proves he has cornerback speed, running in the 4.4s instead of the 4.5s, he would be available at that spot as well.

With the Seahawks, there are some significant needs on both sides of the ball. They need to add playmakers. Considering the value of the position and just the fact that Crabtree is so dynamic and it's such an area of need for the Seahawks, I would think Crabtree would be the pick at that spot.

Next up: 49ers at No. 10.
