April Madness: Day One

March is so last week, and the NCAA men’s basketball tournament concludes tonight.

To help with your bracket withdrawal, and promote the NFL draft later this month, Seahawks.com is asking you to select the best draft choice in franchise history. One selection at a time.

Cortez Kennedy? Walter Jones? Kenny Easley? Shaun Alexander? Jacob Green? They’re all included in the draft bracket, along with a dozen other players. Each day, for the next 16 days, you’ll be asked to select a “winner” until we reach “the winner.”

Today’s Vote: Springs vs. Young

Today, it’s a play-in matchup between cornerback Shawn Springs, the third pick overall in the 1997 draft, and linebacker/special teams standout Fredd Young, a third-round pick in 1984 who ended up being voted to the Pro Bowl twice as a special teams player and then two more times as a linebacker.
