With the 2021 NFL draft upon us on Thursday, teams futures are being decided. Despite not having any first round draft picks this season, the Seattle Seahawks.. MY SEATTLE SEAHAWKS have had a rich history under Pete Carroll in finding gems in the third day of the draft in beyond. Here are some of the best picks late in the draft in the Pete Carroll and John Schneider regime.
2010, No. 111: CB Walter Thurmond III, Oregon
Sometimes forgotten. But Thurmond was a beast in our secondary. Despite not being part of the Legion of Boom he was solid.
2010, No. 133: S Kam Chancellor, Virginia Tech
Kam Chancellor was one of the most beloved Seahawks of our era and one of the most feared safeties in league history.
On the latest episode of Pod That the Jarjour Brothers (707) co-founders & brothers, George & Sami Jarjour discussed Seattle’s drafting, NFL Draft Red Flags, Kyle Trask winning a Super Bowl, and more… which can be played on Spotify below, or here for all other platforms:
“We’re a bunch of wild dogs until the big lion comes around.”
Richard Sherman on Kam Chancellor.
That LOB era ? @brgridiron

2011, No. 99: LB K.J. Wright, Mississippi State
KJ Wright is still a staple on the Seahawks defense. And fun fact, I sat next to his family in a playoff game against the Falcons in Atlanta. And his family is awesome.
2011, No. 154: CB Richard Sherman, Stanford
Other teams were made bro for missing out on Richard Sherman.
69 Damien Lewis
64 DK Metcalf
63 Frank Clark
69 Tyler Lockett
47 Bobby Wagner
75 Russell Wilson
99 KJ Wright
154 Richard Sherman
60 Golden Tate

2011, No. 173: CB Byron Maxwell, Clemson
Another amazing secondary piece for the Seahawks.
2011, No. 242: LB Malcolm Smith, USC
The 2011 draft class was amazing and he won the Super Bowl MVP.
2012, No. 225: G J.R. Sweezy, North Carolina State
A great part of the offensive line.
2017, No. 226: WR David Moore, East Central
A super solid receiver for the Seahawks during his tenure in Seattle.
2017, No. 249: RB Chris Carson, Oklahoma State
The heir to Marshawn Lynch he has been a stud in the backfield.
2018, No. 149: P Michael Dickson, Texas
Yeah, yeah I know a punter.. but one of the best punters in the NFL.
The Seahawks of course also got Russell Wilson in the 3rd round of the draft and he’s the greatest player in franchise history. Bobby Wagner was a late round pick, and DK Metcalf was taken in the 2nd round. The Seahawks have been great late.
Round 2, pick 56
Round 4, pick 129
Round 7, pick 250
