Seahawks add safety LeGree in fifth round

The Seahawks added another player to their secondary with their second pick in the fifth round, selecting Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree.

The 6-foot, 211-pound LeGree led the nation in interceptions and was a Buchanan Award finalist in 2008, when he started 13 games at free safety. Last season, he started at strong safety. He had 22 career interceptions.

Pro Football Weekly on LeGree: “Finesse free safety with speed and ball skills to warrant a look as a centerfielder, but average athletic ability and instincts limit his ceiling.”

With the Seahawks, he adds depth at a spot where Earl Thomas, a first-round draft choice last year, is the starter at free safety and Kam Chancellor has a chance to replace Lawyer Milloy at strong safety.

The Seahawks’ remaining picks:

Sixth round (1) – 8th pick, 173rd overall

Seventh round (2) – 2nd pick, 205th overall; 41st pick, 242nd overall
