Seahawks Select Kam Chancellor at 133

Pete Carroll loves his big safeties. Loves. Loves. Loves his big safeties. Luckily, he loosed his death grip on personnel decisions and Seattle instead drafted a good safety that fits the modern game: Earl Thomas. Still, drafting Taylor Mays the lesser must make Carroll happy.

Kam Chancellor is an in-the-box thumper that has the skills to compensate for his lackluster quickness. Short term, Chancellor will provide the run stopping presence Seattle shoehorned Deon Grant into and help as a special teams player. Long term, he's the kind of steady performer a team seems to always want to upgrade on. Not bad, but could be a liability in coverage.
