No, I’m not that big a fan of this pick. This probably just assured everyone that our QB lineup is going to be Hasselbeck/Whitehurst/Teel.
Okung is our new left tackle for the future. I think Okung is a bit overrated. He’s a good run blocker but I’m not sold on him as a pass blocker. Then again I guess this could work out over time under Alex Gibbs.
Welcome to the Seahawks, Russell Okung. I don’t think there was any need to pick a tackle in a class this deep at #6. Now let’s hope CJ Spiller is on the board.
