can't pass on Iowa T Brian Bulaga
A very athletic offensive tackle who has had some trouble with injuries in the past, but he has the ability to play both left and right tackle at the next level. He moves well for his size and has big upside, but too often gets knocked over and doesn’t use his size with good leverage.
It was really hard to pass on Texas S Earl Thomas. As Pete Carroll leaned more towards Thomas. But, he told Paul Allen that either player would be an excellent pick. Paul Allen made the final decision as he thought it best to "attempt" to protect both Hasselbeck and their new franchise Quarterback, Clausen.
