With the fourth pick of the 2009 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith.
Here is lions4life's reasoning for the pick:
The signing of TJ Houshmanzadeh took Michael Crabtree off Seattle's board. In my opinion Seattle's first choice is Matthew Stafford. Seattle is perfect place for him to thrive, learning under Matt Hasselback. However, they are satisfied with the consensus top left tackle in the draft. Jason Smith is one of the most athletic left tackles I have ever seen, he has quick feet and good hands (used to be a TE). Left tackle is a glaring need in one of the worst OL in the league. It is still one of the top 5 picks and in the top five teams are still going after value rather than position. Jason Smith can keep the injury prone quarterbacks one their feet for the next ten years in Seattle
