Exclusive Video: Live Aaron Curry Draft Pick By The Seattle Seahawks!

The Seattle Seahawks got the player they wanted, selecting Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry with the No. 4 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft this afternoon.

With the No. 4 selection, Curry is the highest linebacker selected since Green Bay picked linebacker A.J. Hawk with the fifth pick overall in the 2006 draft.

Curry was considered the best player overall in this year’s draft, and the safest pick. Seahawks GM Tim Ruskell said before the draft that he wanted to select a player who would make an immediate impact, and Curry seems to fit the bill.

The Seahawks have a vacancy at outside linebacker with Julian Peterson traded to Detroit. So Curry can step in and fill the vacant spot at linebacker.

Curry was emotional after hearing his name read, and said he’ll be a good fit in Seattle’s defensive system.

“I expect to go in there and really get into a team-oriented franchise, and get into the defense and have some fun and fly around,” he said.

Curry, 22, was the Butkus Award winner as the best linebacker in the nation last year. At 6-foot-2, 254 pounds, Curry was the fastest linebacker at the combine in Indianapolis, and is expected to be a guy who can play fast and sure tackler who plays well in space.
