    The Seattle Seahawks started strong on Thursday and Friday by basically adding our future RT and RG.

    Both players are mean, nasty players that will dominate on the right side in 2011-12 season. Alabama LT James Carpenter and Wisconsin OG John Moffitt are road pavers that will drastically improve the run game, while adding great pass coverage.

    Looks like Cable had a huge say in this years draft.

    The late round pick I am in love with is 6'5" Georgia WR Kris Durham.

    So lets take a look at Rounds 1-4 and just see these players in action.

OT James Carpenter

1 of 4

    OT James Carpenter can play OG but I think the Seahawks pair him up with John Moffitt on the right side. That will be one of the best one-two punch on the right side.

    James Carpenter was a big part of Alabama's running attack. He possess great pass coverage as well.


OG John Moffitt

    In the third round Seattle has done what the Kansas City Chiefs did by bolstering their O-Line in two drafts. With Seattle moving down and picking up a third-round pick, many think Seattle was targeting Wis.

    OG John Moffitt, as early as the second round. Instead the Seahawks front office gambled and still won their coveted right offensive guard.

    Moffitt is another road paver, who also is going to also be a vocal leader on the Seahawks offensive line. Once Moffit engages he pretty much dominates, very fluid for a 6'5 315 pound guard.

    Grade: B

    Note: When watching the video look for No. 74 at left guard

OLB K.J Wright

3 of 4

    With this pick the Seahawks front office must be thinking LEO. Standing at 6'3" 248 pounds, Wright is going to be the heir apparent to Leo specialist Clemons.

    Wright has great zone protection skills and can pass rush effectively.

WR Kris Durham

4 of 4

    Well the first thing people notice about Georgia WR Kris Durham is his 6'5" frame. Durham has deceptive speed and play-making ability, Other then his stats, I cannot believe Durham didnt go higher in the draft.

    Durham has average route-running ability, add his height and ability to go after the ball in the air, he will be a starter on the Seahawks roster eventually. All Seahawk fans should be excited about this pick.
