Top Ten Best Draft Picks In Seahawks' History: #6 - Michael Sinclair

With the 155th overall pick (6th round) in the 1991 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Michael Sinclair, a defensive end out of Eastern New Mexico.

Sinclair took a few seasons to make his way into the starting lineup, but once he did he made a big impact playing next to Sam Adams, Cortez Kennedy, and Phillip Daniels. His best seasons came in 1996-1998, where he totaled 41.5 sacks in a three year period. He made the Pro-Bowl in each of those 3 seasons - he was third in the league in sacks in 1996, second in 1997, and then led the league in sacks with 16.5 in 1998. 

Over 11 seasons with the Seahawks, he started 114 games at DE, and totaled 345 career tackles, 73.5 sacks, and 24 forced fumbles. He's second in Seahawks franchise history in both sacks and forced fumbles. Sinclair did well for himself when he found a lot of talent around him, and was a very good value for the Seahawks after being drafted in the 6th round. He's a Seahawks' legend.
