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.
