The Seahawks kept wheeling and dealing in day two of the draft.

They dealt their fifth-round pick, one of their seventh-round picks, 213th, and a third-round pick in next years draft to get the Eagles third-round pick this year.

To me, that’s way to much to give up and, considering who they drafted, they better be very high on Butler.

Players like FS Rashad Johnson from Alabama and CB Keenan Lewis from Oregon State among others, were still on the board.

Now, onto Butler. He’s basically a younger version of former Seahawks WR Bobby Engram. He’s 5'11" and had a 4.26-40 at the combine. Butler’s going to be a great slot WR for Seattle or fourth string WR.

I give the pick a "B." I was going to give it a "C+," because of what they gave up to get the pick and who was still on the board.
