Seattle Seahawks Inside Slant 2009-04-03
With less than a month before this year's draft, the Seattle Seahawks still have several different possibilities they can pursue with the team's No. 4 overall pick.


But one player they seem to have zoned in on is Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry.

Considered by several draft experts as the top overall player in the draft and the safest pick, the Seahawks recently worked out Curry in Winston-Salem, N.C. on the Wake Forest campus, according to Curry's agent Andy Ross.

Seattle also had Curry in for a private visit at the team's Renton practice facility.

"He (Curry) said everything went great," Ross said about the workout at Wake Forest. "He really got along with the coach well and really likes their system. He just looks forward to whatever team takes him to be a leader and an impact player."

Curry already visited Detroit Lions, who have the No. 1 overall pick. Along with Seattle, he plans to visit Kansas City and Cleveland.

The 6-2, 254-pound Curry ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds last month in Indianapolis at the NFL scouting combine, the fastest time by a linebacker.

Curry would fill a need for Seattle, replacing Pro Bowler Julian Peterson in Seattle's 4-3 defensive front. The Seahawks traded Peterson to Detroit for defensive lineman Cory Redding and a fifth-round draft choice this year.

Seattle had $20.7 million in salary tied up in its starting linebackers with Peterson in the fold, but gained about $4 million in cap space by dealing Peterson. The Seahawks, however, may not want to put themselves in similar position by drafting Curry, a rangy athlete who would bring a similar set of skills to Seattle's linebackers' unit as the departed Peterson.

Ross said Curry would welcome any team drafting him.

"I think he looks at it as a dream come true to play in the NFL," Ross said. "And whatever team takes him, he just loves football. He loves the game. He loves to study the game. And he wants to get in there and help whatever team decides that he's the guy for them."
