Seahawks take LB Bobby Wagner in second round
The Seattle Seahawks once again traded back in the draft then surprised the draft "experts". This time the Seahawks traded four spots back to the New York Jets gaining an extra fifth and seventh round draft pick. With their pick the Seahawks took middle linebacker Bobby Wagner out of Utah State. The Seahawks despite having an already top 10 defense are loading up on defense once again. They also gained extra picks which is a smart move given how well the team has drafted in the past couple of years. Wagner could also be an outside linebacker. The Seahawks needed linebackers and have picked up two who provide different roles. Also by trading back twice Pete Carroll and John Schneider have picked up an extra four draft picks which is the key.
At the end of the day let's stop listening to Kiper and McShay. Instead let's trust that Carroll and Schneider who have drafted well the last two years know what they are doing. They have addressed the linebacker/pass rusher positions while gaining four extra picks in the draft. This draft isn't being praised by those ESPN blowhards but those guys don't know what they are talking about anyways. The Seahawks are breaking in new uniforms this year and also going to bring a talented roster to Century Link Field. The Seahawks are having a good draft so far don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
