Seahawks All-Time Fantasy Mock Draft: Rounds 1-5

What would a "Field of Dreams" style fantasy roster featuring current and former Seahawks look like? The All Seahawks writing staff took on the challenge by drafting their own all-time rosters via snake draft. Which players heard their names called in the first five rounds?

Set to kick off their 47th season as an NFL franchise later this month, the Seahawks have had no shortage of star power during their nearly five decades of existence since beginning play in 1976.

In a world without realism, what would a fantasy team featuring Seattle legends from different eras playing together look like? During the heat of the offseason, while the teams won't be seen on an actual field, our All Seahawks writing staff attempted to find out by conducting a 25-round fantasy draft featuring only current and former Seahawks available to select.

How did the rosters shake out? In part one of a five part series, here's a look at five separate Seahawks Ultimate Fantasy teams after the first five rounds of the mock draft simulation, including round, pick number, selection, and a quick rundown on the player's NFL career.

General Manager: Corbin Smith

Round 1 (5): Kenny Easley, Safety

The original enforcer of Seattle's secondary in the early 80s, Easley struck fear in opponents with his propensity for big hits as well as his theatrics for creating turnovers as a ball-hawking safety. During his seven dominant years with the Seahawks, Easley led the team to the playoffs three times, earning First Team All-Pro three consecutive years from 1983-1985. In 1984, he led the league with 10 interceptions, returning two of them for touchdowns, which earned him NFL Defensive Player of the Year. While his career didn't last long due to kidney issues, he eventually earned his rightful spot in Canton as one of the best to ever play the game.

Round 2 (1): Matt Hasselbeck, Quarterback

Reuniting with coach Mike Holmgren, who drafted him in Green Bay, the former Boston College standout became one of Seattle's most decorated passers. From 2003 to 2007, he threw for 17,000 yards, threw 118 touchdown passes, and appeared in three Pro Bowls. With him at the helm, the Seahawks emerged as one of the NFL's best offensive teams, using their scoring prowess to get to the Super Bowl in 2005 and advance to the Divisional Round each of the next two seasons. When Hasselbeck departed Seattle for Tennessee in 2011, he left holding the franchise record for passing yards and sat second behind Dave Krieg for passing touchdowns.

Round 3 (5): Shaun Alexander, Running Back

Taken in the first round of the 2000 draft, Alexander validated his lofty draft status in his second season, racking up 1,318 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns, which led the NFL. The Alabama product then rattled off five straight seasons of at least 1,100 rushing yards with no less than 14 touchdowns, earning three Pro Bowl nods and a First-Team All-Pro selection. During Seattle's run to an NFC championship and Super Bowl appearance in 2005, Alexander rewrote franchise and NFL record books with 1,880 rushing yards and an NFL-record 28 touchdowns, including one via the air, on his way to winning MVP.

Round 4 (1): Dave Brown, Cornerback

Despite the recent dominance of Seattle's defense with All-Pro players all over the “Legion of Boom” secondary, Brown remains comfortably atop the franchise’s all-time interceptions list with 50. And yet, stunningly, Seattle’s first true shutdown corner in franchise history only earned one trip to the Pro Bowl. In 11 seasons as a Seahawk, he posted four or more interceptions eight times, returned a franchise-best five picks for defensive touchdowns, and also recovered 12 fumbles. His finest season came in 1984 for a 12-win Seahawks squad when he picked off a career-best eight passes on the way to his lone Pro Bowl selection.

Round 5 (5): Max Unger, Center

Taken in the second round of the 2008 draft, Unger was a vital part of an offensive line that paved holes for Marshawn Lynch to become "Beast Mode," blocking for him for each of the four seasons the star back eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards. He was the center for Matt Hasselbeck and Russell Wilson, helping bridge the franchise from the old era to their Super Bowl winning ways. Unger played in eight playoff games for the Seahawks including the back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. He earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2012, one of just three Seattle offensive linemen to receive that distinction.
