Seattle Seahawks Select James Carpenter With 25th Overall Pick

With the 25th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Alabama offensive tackle/guard James Carpenter.

Ummm, okay? I honestly do not know what Seattle just did. They grabbed a guy who projected to be a second or third round draft pick at pick 25. Not only that but they passed on Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi who could also play at right tackle, opposite of Russell Okung, or slide into guard. Carpenter played at Alabama, so he has experience in the vaunted SEC. However, I just cannot approve of this pick when a much more talented player is on the board. This has to be the worst pick in the first round and Seattle should have taken Carimi.
