While eagerly awaiting the Seahawks’ selections at No. 6 and No. 14 in the first round of the NFL draft, which starts at 4:30 tomorrow, take a moment to participate in Seahawks.com’s exercise to select the best draft choice in franchise history.
The “tournament,” which already has generated 15,248 votes, is down to the final two: Walter Jones and Cortez Kennedy.
The setup for the finals was featured in a story, rather than on the blog. So this is a not-so-subtle reminder to vote. The voting period has even been extended to 10 a.m. tomorrow because, well, this is the finals after all.
Not that the finalists need introductions, but Jones (nine) and Kennedy (eight) have been voted to more Pro Bowls than any players in franchise history. Kennedy won NFL defensive player of the year honors in 1992, was named the NFL All-Decade team for the 1990s and inducted in the Ring of Honor in 2006. Jones is the best left tackle of his generation, was named the All-Decade team for the 2000s and could be the next player to enter the Ring of Honor.
