Seattle Seahawks Trade 139th Pick for Leon Washington and 236th Pick

This is awesome. My love of stocky speed backs renders me incapable of properly analyzing this pick. Give me a second.

Ok, Leon Washington is signed to a one-year tender. He suffered a compound fracture to his fibula in week seven. That is why Washington came so cheap. Like Walter Thurmond, this is a high upside pick with a lot of risk. Well, not a lot, because Seattle traded very little, but a lot in the sense that Washington may not contribute much if anything to the Seahawks franchise. If he does, hell yeah.

What ties Washington and second round pick Golden Tate together is that both have home run potential even paired with a weak armed quarterback. In a lot of ways, by selecting Russell Okung, Golden Tate and trading for Washington, Seattle is following the Matt Hasselbeck plan for the future.
