Top Ten Best Draft Picks In Seahawks' History: #7 - Chris Warren

With the 89th selection (4th round) of the 1990 draft, the Seahawks selected Chris Warren, a running back out of the Division-III school Ferrum. Warren came in and contributed on special teams in his first two seasons, but had a breakout year in his third season. In 1992, he rushed for 1,017 yards and 3TDs with a per-rush average of 4.6 yards. 

He followed that up with a 1,072 yards, 7 TD performance in '93, and was elected to his first Pro-Bowl. In '94, he ran for 1,545 yards and 9 TDs and was All-Pro in addition to making the Pro-Bowl once again. He made the Pro-Bowl for the third straight year in '95 and was All-Pro again that year as he rushed for 1,346 yards and 15 TDs. 

In eight seasons, he rushed for 6,706 yards, 44 touchdowns, 3 Pro-Bowls and 2 All-Pro selections. He held the franchise record for rushing yards until Shaun Alexander eclipsed him in 2005. Not too shabby for a 4th round pick out of a D-III school I've never heard of.
