Some will characterize Jackson as a surprise to the Chiefs, but Jackson, the preeminent 5-technique of this draft, makes sense as the Chiefs transition from a 4-3 to 3-4 scheme.
The Seahawks are now on the clock. They are considering the following 4 players with this pick.
A. Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest
B. Mark Sanchez, QB, USC
C. Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech
D. Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia
The Seahawks, like every other team this high, is hoping to trade out of the pick. Denver is a possibility. The Broncos and Redskins are possibilities.
Ultimately, if Seattle is unable to trade out, they'll likely take Curry, the safest combination of athleticism and character of this draft. Curry also fills a clear need given the trade of Julian Peterson to the Lions and the fact that current franchise-tagged linebacker Leroy Hill has yet to sign his tender with the Seahawks.
