With the 233rd overall pick, the Seattle Seahawks select...

by: Chris Sullivan

...Running Back Justin Forsett from California! He had a pretty good year in 2007, and is more a Mo Morris type back than he is an Alexander guy. He's apparently got good character, and didn't have too much of a chance at Cal due to another RB named Marshawn Lynch. The guys on NFL Network just said he is a "Brian Westbrook kind of guy" with a chip on his shoulder. I really like this pick, and so did those fellows. I imagine he'll be a practice squad guy this year, unless we deal Morris elsewhere or decide to make him our special teams RB. He's rated 55 by and is very small -- 5' 8" and 194 lbs... we shall see what happens with him!
