With the 4th Pick in the 2009 Draft...

The Seahawks select: 2 conditional late round picks.

While I was a big fan of the pick when they made it, what a colossal bust it turned out to be. Various coaching staffs tried Curry in a number of roles to see where he would thrive and the results were poor on all counts. He routinely was out of position and missed tackles.

Big Busts
I remember watching his debut and expecting to see this amazing flash of football brilliance and it never happened. He was expected to be an impact player and never was. The lesson is that all the athletic ability in the world only gets you to the league, hard work and football IQ is what makes a young talent succeed (and some HGH, of course).

Doug Baldwin is the antithesis of Aaron Curry. Undrafted, undersized, a little slow, but hardworking and smart.
