Regrading the Seattle Seahawks 2010 NFL draft class
By Lee Vowell
Round four – two picks
The Seahawks had two picks in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL draft. One player would play a decent amount with Seattle but not be a very impactful player. The other recorded one tackle is his short career.
Round 4 Pick 111: Walter Thurmond: C-
It is difficult to be too harsh on Walter Thurmond. He never had a real chance of becoming a starter long-term with Seattle. He would play among a group that included Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner at cornerback and Thurmond was too small to fit the mold of a Pete Carroll corner.
In four years with Seattle, Thurmond started 8 games. He had one interception (which he did return for a touchdown) and had 16 passes-defended. Thurmond was more a special teams player and he performed decently at that.
Thurmond started all 16 games for the Eagles in 2015 at strong safety and had 3 interceptions. 2015 was Thurmond’s last year in the NFL.
Round 4 Pick 127: E.J. Wilson: F
E.J. Wilson played in just two games for the Seahawks in 2010 and had one tackle. He was cut during the season. He did sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for training camp in 2011 but he tore his Achilles tendon and would never play again.
