Aaron Curry is headed to the bench

The Seahawks haven't gotten the kind of play they expected when they made Aaron Curry the fourth overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft so they are giving someone else a chance.
Curry has been demoted to the second team and rookie K.J. Wright will take his place as a starting outside linebacker. Curry has been a starter since arriving in Seattle after a decorated career at Wake Forest, but he has never been particularly impressive at the professional level. In 32 career games, Curry has recorded 123 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He had his only NFL interception in last season's playoff loss to the Bears. Eric Williams of the Tacoma News-Tribune got Curry's thoughts on the move

The Broncos(von Miller).
The superbowl winning Green Bay Packers.(AJ Hawk)
Lavar Harrington, back in 2000.
Ernie Sims went at 9 in '06.
Keith Rivers went at 9 in 2008.

but generally I agree with you. Unless the guy is a special talent(Von Miller), 4-3 OLB isnt a real playmaking position worthy of such a high pick.
dude is taller than WIllis,but that's it.
if they release him I would say take a shot with him
Did Curry play against any competition while at Wake Forest?

I wonder if Curry would have dropped to us if Seattle drafted Crabtree.

I believe AJ Hawk is an ILB
