A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on April 17:

1999: Defensive end Lamar King is selected in the first round of the first draft headed by Mike Holmgren, who had been hired in January and handed the title of executive vice president of football operations/general manager and head coach. If only King’s career had been that long, as he started 37 games over five seasons – highlighted by a 48-tackle, six-sack season in 2000.
