With the 154th overall pick, the Seahawks select…

…linebacker Korey Toomer from Idaho.  Between this pick and the two guys from Utah State, Seattle has now drafted three players from the Western Athletic Conference.  Whoever scouts for the team there must write one hell of a scouting report.

Toomer is an interesting player.  He’s got decent size and physical ability, running a 4.5s forty and got in 20 reps on the bench press at his pro day.  During his senior year he played both inside and outside linebacker, a little defensive end, a little fullback (28 yds and 3 TDs on 9 carries, mainly in short-yardage situations), and he didn’t come off the field in nickel situations.  The downside is he only played two years at Idaho after transferring from a junior college in Arizona, and he missed his entire 2010 season due to injury, so inexperience and durability are concerns.

The only video I’ve been able to find for Toomer is this short clip of him scoring a two point conversion against San Jose State.  It’s entertaining, but it doesn’t tell us much about how his play as a linebacker.
