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.
