Seventh round: Sweezy selected

The Seahawks just selected North Carolina defensive tackle J.R. Sweezy with their first pick in the seventh round of the NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-4, 298-pound Sweezy started seven games last season, when he had 20 tackles; and made 12 starts in 2010, when he had 50 tackles and 5.5 sacks.

The pick was the 18th pick in the round and 225th overall. The Seahawks acquired the pick from the Raiders in last year’s trade of linebacker Aaron Curry.
