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.
