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
