Rang’s grades are in, thoughts on Hill

April 28, 2009 3:44 pm’s Rob Rang gives Seattle an A in his post-draft rankings on CBS Sports.

Here’s an excerpt.

Like their divisional neighbors to the south, the Seahawks were able to wrestle away a future first-round pick (from Denver) and still fulfill their greatest areas of concern. The headlining pick is outside linebacker Aaron Curry, who fills a huge area of need following the trade of Julian Peterson and the draft-weekend decision to take the franchise tag off linebacker Leroy Hill. The addition of the versatile Max Unger and speedy receiver/returner Deon Butler filled Seattle’s three biggest needs seamlessly. Don’t be surprised if at least one of the club’s seventh-round picks (safety Courtney Greene, defensive end/linebacker Nick Reed and tight end Cameron Morrah) makes this club.

Rang grades all 32 teams, which you can check out here.

Rang also talked to KJR’s Ian Furness about Seattle’s draft class in this audio link.

ESPN’s Mike Sando provides a good breakdown of the Leroy Hill situation here. Sand says Hill should have signed the $8.3 million before the draft, and now faces a slim market with most teams having already addressed their concerns through the draft.

KJR’s Mitch Levy and Hugh Millen talk about Hill and whether or not he’ll remain with Seattle in this audio link.
