A team made up of Seahawks first round picks

I posted this on Twitter the other day and in my Seaside Joe newsletter. I’m posting it on Field Gulls now. It’s a starting offense and defense made up only of former Seahawks first rounders. I’m keeping it as I originally posted it, though maybe Jeff Bryant and Tony Woods should switch spots. I didn’t want to start Aaron Curry, so I borrowed a defensive end and placed him there. I don’t think a ton of this is highly debatable. There aren’t that many options to choose from as this goes back to the mid-70s and Seattle has eschewed many first round picks in this decade.

Overall, this is a potentially legendary secondary, a good defensive line, and a great offensive line. They can run the ball and play defense. Pete Carroll’s dream.
