1987: The Seahawks win the lottery for the first pick in the supplemental draft and select University of Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth. The move cost the team its first-round pick in the 1988 NFL Draft. The colorful, and controversial, Bosworth – a.k.a. “The Boz” – would start 24 games in three seasons before a shoulder injury ended his career. He had 78 tackles as a rookie, to finish second on the team behind Pro Bowl linebacker Fredd Young (99); and 82 in 1988, which ranked third behind free safety Eugene Robinson (114) and linebacker Dave Wyman (97).
