On this date: Seahawks make Brian Blades top draft choice
To celebrate this now annual occasion, we merge the galaxies of Star Wars with our newest stars, the 2016 Seahawks draft class. And as you'll disover, the parallels between our two universes go far far beyond simple nameplay. Happy Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you! View
1988: The Seahawks don’t have a first-round draft choice, but get a first-round talent when they select Brian Blades in the second round. Blades would finish his career ranked second to Steve Largent on the Seahawks’ all-time list in receptions (581) and receiving yards (7,620). He was voted to the Pro Bowl in 1989 and also to the Seahawks’ 35th Anniversary team.
1994: Sam Adams is selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. He would start 66 games in his six seasons with the Seahawks.
