I'm resurrecting this Topic now that Draft has been released and we're also looking at Sharper. My gut says that if Draft is a hearty, full-bodied Lager...err...Linebacker, with a good head and no bad after taste, then he will be the one in Seahawks colors this season.

According to KFFL: Ken Sugiura, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports the Atlanta Falcons could decide to release LB Chris Draft, who is scheduled to make $1.3 million and is projected as a backup in 2005, since Ed Hartwell will be taking his starting position.
OK, calling him a Tall draft may be a stretch of poetic license, but he was good enough to start for Atlanta last year, and they had a pretty good defense.
One of the most impressive items on his stat sheet from the Falcons site is this:
In April of 2002, Draft saved a man's life by pulling him from a burning car off interstate I-85 in Gwinnett County.
Sounds like the quality of character guys that Ruskell likes to deal with.
