re: seed-eating therapods

The reason why modern birds have gastric stones,
basically, cannot apply to sauropods. Seed-eating
theropods (was there such a thing?), maybe.

Could such a creature have evolved? Would a non-beaked* seed-eating theropod have resembled Incisaraptor(sp) more than Therizinosaurs?

* = for specificness' sake, I'm referring to modern birds; not to Oviraptor.
