A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on April 15

2000: Shaun Alexander and Chris McIntosh are selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. Alexander, a running back from Alabama, would become the only player in franchise history to be named league MVP after leading the NFL in rushing and scoring a then-league record 28 touchdowns during the team’s Super Bowl run in 2005. But injuries limited McIntosh, a tackle from Wisconsin, to 13 starts in two seasons. Alexander, who also would become the franchise’s all-time leader in rushing yards (9,429), rushing touchdowns (100) and touchdowns (112), was voted to the Seahawks’ 35th Anniversary team.
