The info on Judge Seymour is consistent with what I had heard through (unspecified but reliable) mutual Tulsa friends last fall. If not this year, then very soon. How 'bout that for unnamed sources?


...though I suppose Nygaard and Van Antwerpen are the "Pennsylvania seats," and all of the names on your list are NJ lawyers


One possible reason that so many names are circulating is that there are actually 2 vacancies on the Third Circuit and a third is likely to pop up soon.

Chertoff is the head of DHS, Nygaard has recently taken senior status, and Judge Van Antwerpen says on his FLCIS clerkship vacancy announcement that he will be taking senior status soon. It may turn out that almost all of the names you're floating wind up on the Third Circuit soon.
