3. Bobby Wagner, ILB, Utah State (47th overall in 2012) Value Grade=178.6
At number 3 is undoubtedly the best linebacker to ever suit up for the Seattle Seahawks and probably one of the best to ever suit up for any team, Bobby Wagner, who gets a value grade of 178.6.
Wagner is the second Legion of Boom member to stake his spot in the top 5. He had a somewhat magisterial career as a Seahawk, earning 8 Pro Bowl nominations and 6 All-Pro accolades, as well as breaking countless NFL and Seahawks records for the linebacker position.
Grabbing a player of Wagner’s caliber anywhere in the top 10 pick of the draft is a steal, so it comes as no surprise that getting him at 47 was a fantastic deal. He was a rock for the Seattle defense and has been helping youngster Jordyn Brooks become a fantastic linebacker as well.
While it was sad to see him go this offseason, and even more upsetting to hear his side of the story about how it happened, just like Wilson, he will forever be a legend in the city of Seattle and will always be loved by all 12s (and would be welcomed back to the team at any time, fingers crossed).
