Seahawks All-Time Fantasy Draft (22)

With the 22nd overall pick in the first ever Seahawks All-Time Fantasy Draft, the Springfield Mudbones select...

Finally the Mudbones reach into the 21st century to take one of the greatest linebackers in team history (a reputation established after a mere two seasons wearing the uniform). JP's performance in 2006 and 2007 is comparable to other great linebacking efforts in Seahawks legend: Rufus Porter in 1991 and Fredd Young in 1987. Statistically, even the great Chad Brown never matched Peterson's destructive power over the last two seasons.

A freakish hybrid of speed and power, Peterson is capable of absolutely destroying an opposing offense. I saw this first hand in a preseason game back in 2006... Weirdly wearing number 44 (which gave me Bosworth flashbacks), JP hit Jim Sorgi so hard the poor kid flew backwards a few feet. The ball popped in the air... Interception... Touchdown.

Peterson shows no signs of decline, and can be expected to climb ever higher up this list in coming years.

If the Mudbones can't have Lofa, #59 is the next best thing.
