2011 NFL Draft Results: Malcolm Smith The Final Seattle Seahawks Pick

The seventh round quickly devolved into a run on USC players as three were taken in a row by the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks. With their final pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seahawks took USC linebacker Malcolm Smith. The Trojan was the second linebacker chosen by the Seahawks, joining fourth-round pick K.J Wright.

Smith is the brother of New York Giants’ wide receiver Steve Smith. He’s a speedster with a 4.4 40-yard-dash, but it’s unclear how he fits into the Seahawks plans and seems to be little more than depth.

With that, the 2011 NFL Draft ends with a whimper. Seattle went after clear needs, choosing multiple linebackers, defensive backs and offensive linemen. It was clear from the picks where the Seahawks wanted to focus, and they did so in an almost tunnel-vision way.

2011 NFL Draft Picks: Seattle Seahawks Select Pep Levingston

With the 205th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected LSU defensive lineman Pep Levingston. And with the pick, Seattle finally broke its streak of defensive back picks, switching gears and filling a need on the defensive line. Seattle fans were waiting for a defensive line pick and the position was seen as a serious need ahead of the draft. But as the picks kept coming in, the Seahawks kept ignoring the defensive line spot, instead putting it off until the early-seventh round.

Levingston checks in at 6-foot-3, 292 pounds and should slide in as depth on the line. The most logical fit for him in Seattle would be in a Red Bryant type role, where he will likely play as a backup should he make the roster.

2011 NFL Draft Results: Zack Williams Drafted By Carolina Panthers

With the 203rd pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Zack Williams, a center from Washington State, was selected by the Carolina Panthers. And with that, the Cougars had themselves a bona-fide draft pick, a rarity on the Palouse these days. Williams impressed with his combine numbers, showing off surprising athleticism in pre-draft workouts.

Williams was a mainstay on the Washington offensive line in 2010, though he did take some grief for his difficulty handling snaps while the team was in the shotgun. But Williams is a capable interior lineman despite his issues with long-snapping, which should be less of an issue in the NFL.

2011 NFL Draft Picks: Seattle Seahawks Have Two Seventh Round Picks Left

The Seattle Seahawks 2011 NFL Draft adventure is almost over. Barring a trade, the Seahawks have just two picks remaining in the draft, both of which will come in the seventh round. It’s been an odd third day of the NFL Draft for the Seahawks as the picks are coming in bunches by position group. After taking a linebacker and wide receiver in the fourth round, Seattle picked three-consecutive defensive backs, leaving many to wonder why the run on the position group.

Nevertheless, there is still value on the board as the seventh round approaches and the Seahawks have a chance to take a chance on a player in hopes of grabbing a steal. Will Seattle take a quarterback — Tyrod Taylor or Greg McIlroy — or will they find a late-round defensive lineman? With the way things have been going, we have no idea what to expect.

Here is the draft order for the seventh round as it stands now.

204) Green Bay (from Carolina)
205) Seattle (from Denver via Seattle)
206) Buffalo
207) Cincinnati

2011 NFL Draft Results: Seattle Seahawks Pick Another Defensive Back

With the 174th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks drafted another defensive back: Byron Maxwell, a cornerback from Clemson. Either Pete Carroll is pushing the competition angle hard, or we’ve all underestimated the need in the defensive backfield. Yes, the Seahawks needed depth, but three defensive backs in a row? It’s left many shaking their heads.

With the run on defensive backs in the late rounds, one has to wonder what the plan is and whose jobs are in jeopardy. We know Kelly Jennings may be on the outs, but is Carroll planning to rebuild the entire defensive backfield from the ground-up? It sure looks that way.

NFL Draft Results: Seattle Seahawks Pick Mark Legree

With the 25th pick in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Appalachian State safety Mark Legree. In the fifth round, the Seahawks went after defensive backs exclusively, taking Legree just two picks after picking Richard Sherman, a cornerback out of Stanford. Legree is a small-school safety and continues the Seahawks trend of selecting by positions in bunches.

The Seahawks did need defensive backfield help and will need depth at the free safety spot. Legree fills that role and has been nothing but a ball-hawking safety at Appalachian State, recording interceptions in bunches.

2011 NFL Draft Results: Richard Sherman Selected By Seattle Seahawks

With the 23rd pick in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Richard Sherman, a cornerback from Stanford. Once again, Pete Carroll and John Schneider drafted for need in an effort to shore-up the defensive backfield. Seattle needed a cornerback to step-in for Kelly Jennings, who is undersized and doesn’t quite fit the defensive scheme, and addressed the need through the draft.

At 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, Sherman has the size to be a bit more physical than the current Seahawks corners, but the pick is, once again, a reach. Sherman was widely seen as a seventh round pick, if not an undrafted free agent. If there’s one thing we know by now, it’s that Carroll and Schneider are set in their ways and willing to go against the grain in the draft.

2011 NFL Draft Results: Seattle Seahawks Pick Kris Durham

With the 107th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Georgia wide receiver Kris Durham. In an offense that featured A.J. Green, Durham was the second-leading receiver, but gained yardage in chunks for the Bulldogs. In 2010, Durham averaged 20 yards per catch, racking up 659 yards on 32 catches. He also grabbed three touchdowns.

At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Durham has the size to go up and get a ball on the outside, though he may have been a bit of a one-year wonder. In his first three seasons at Georgia, he never caught more than 15 balls and never broke the 200-yard mark. But in his senior year, Durham broke out and put together a few big games.

While Durham adds depth at receiver, the Seahawks still have significant holes to fill on the roster, including along the defensive line. Seattle is done with the third round and picks again in the fourth.

2011 NFL Draft Results: Seattle Seahawks Select K.J. Wright

With the 99th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected K.J. Wright, a linebacker from Mississippi State. After choosing offensive linemen with their first two picks, at least the Seahawks changed it up here, though picking a linebacker is a bit perplexing, to say the least. In the middle, Seattle still has Lofa Tatupu, though his injury history has hampered him as of late. Aaron Curry is still young, making another linebacker choice, especially with the second pick of the fourth round, struck many as odd right away.

At 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, it's likely Wright will be used as a rush end in Seattle's defensive scheme. Think of it less as a linebacker and more as a defensive end working without his hand in the ground.
