This is perhaps the most puzzling selection for the Seahawks, partly because they may opt to keep seven wide receivers instead of the normal six.
The 25th spot on offense might also go to a fourth tight end or a third quarterback.
Assuming six receivers make the final roster, Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Braylon Edwards are likely the first four to secure spots.
The driving question is whether the team will opt to keep a third 5'10" receiver in Deon Butler or lean toward a slightly larger Charly Martin or Ben Obomanu. One of those figures to be the fifth receiver and Rice's backup; Butler has had the best summer of the three.
This leaves Kris Durham, Jermaine Kearse and Lavasier Tuinei battling for the final roster spot at wide receiver. Ricardo Lockette could also be in the mix as a deep threat if Butler doesn't make the team.
Kearse has shown flashes of decent play, but he may not even be considered for the practice squad. Tuinei has looked very good at times, but he's been inconsistent with his routes and gaining separation.
The release of Terrell Owens likely gives Kris Durham one last opportunity to show that his efforts last season were reflective of his capabilities.
Durham ran solid routes in 2011, gaining separation and catching most everything thrown his direction. He also demonstrated very good body control when going up to catch the ball.
He seems to lack the fire he brought as a rookie, though. He's been inconsistent with his hands and doesn't always show the explosiveness he's capable of providing.
As the sixth receiver, Durham could expect to be inactive on game days. This would give the Seahawks the protection of having another big receiver on the roster while providing Durham a little more time to work out whatever issues are distracting him.
