With the #107 Pick, the Seattle Seahawks Select Kris Durham, WR, Georgia

Sweet! Another big WR with low numbers for John Moffitt to throw to.

Quick expert opinions:

Doug Farrar: Durham faster than your pssession receiver. Quick to/thru seam, good downfield. Vertical. Cuts on short routes. YAC guy.

Rob Rang: For Seahawks fans panicking about Kris Durham, check out Youtube video. + Acceleration, body control for size

Eric Williams: Durham said his visited Seattle before draft, and has been working out with Charlie Whitehurst in Georgia.

Russ Lande: Love the pick of Kris Durham (WR - Georgia) as he has the height, speed, jumping ability and hands to be a big, dangerous down field threat.

Hawk Blogger: Don't know Kris Durham, but he sounds like a Stokley understudy. Tall slot guy with good speed and hands.

Rob Staton: I like the Kris Durham pick. Good size and hands, worth a flier in round four. 

Still wondering the production is despite playing behind AJ Green. Durham's route arsenal was awful limited. Still, he has the tools to grow into some NFL skills. Just surprised we passed on Edmond Gates, Greg Salas, and Tanden Doss for a guy without numbers.


  1. Check out Raven's pick of WR Tandem Doss in Round 4. Compare to WR Kris Durham and wonder WTF Pete and JS are thinking.

  2. Kris Durham has amazing skills. He will be our best reciever, mark my words
