With the 225th overall pick, the Seahawks select…

…defensive end J.R. Sweezy from North Carolina State.  Sweezy (how great is that name?) was projected as more of a 3-4 defensive end, but with the Seahawks he’ll have to find a home for himself at either the 5-tech DE position behind Red Bryant or the 3-tech DT position behind, uh, well, that one’s still up in the air.  He’s got a good initial burst and a great motor, but he’s more a try-hard sort of guy than a naturally gifted athlete.  He also needs to improve his ability to shed blocks, especially if he’s asked to play along the interior d-line.
