The first “surprise” of the draft is that Trent Williams came off the board to the Washington Redskins. It was really only a surprise for two reasons: a lot of observers believe Russell Okung is just better, and the Redskins had planted talk among top media targets that they were going to pass on OT. They played us all, or at least those of us willing to be played.
Seattle benefits from Washington’s idealism by landing the best offensive player in this draft just one year after landing the best defensive player in last year’s draft. The biggest news here: Charlie Whitehurst or Matt Hasselbeck now actually have fantasy value.
