John Carlson Picked #38 by Seattle Seahawks

Earlier this off-season the Seattle Seahawks signed former Notre Dame running back Julius Jones and Saturday they picked former tight end John Carlson #38 overall.

Carlson is the first Notre Dame player to be drafted this year and really helped himself with a a good 40 times at Notre Dame’s Pro Day after a poor showing at the NFL Combine.  Seattle’s offense is a very nice fit for Carlson’s skills and should be a big weapon for Matt Hassleback.

Carlson was the second tight end drafted overall after Purdue’s Dustin Keller.

Many thought Carlson may have been a potential first round pick last year so it is great to see that coming back for a 5th year and enduring the season the Irish did hasn’t really affected his draft stock all that much.

    JC would have gone higher if it were not for the 07 season.
