  • Great pick. Most athletic LB in the draft. Obvious depth at MLB and WLB with special teams written all over him.

    This is the biggest SPARQ pick thus far.

  • Love this pick so much. Had him graded same as Shazier as a 2nd rounder. Flies to ball. Probably my favorite pick yet.

  • Ha Ha SI has graded him at 1. Yet many they graded at 6.6 remain undrafted. Moral of story. Trust football people not journalists.

  • Love this pick; with our coaching staff he'll thrive here in a year or two in the system and be a good ST player as well.

  • Lots of fist bumps and high fives in the war room when they made this pick! Obviously a player they wanted a lot.

    From what I saw, that is almost an understatement.

    Nice press interview. Sounds like they have a lot to work with. Norton should be very pleased.

  • By far my favorite pick so far and probably the first Seahawk pick that wasn't a massive reach besides Richardson.

    KPL is one of my favorite players in this draft and probably the one guy I wanted more than anyone. Great all around will backer with speed to flow, great coverage skills, and solid tackling technique.

    He's a backer in the mold of Malcolm Smith . . . a guy who will do everything well.

  • A lot of people comparing him to Navorro Bowman on Twitter... If he's even a poor man's Bowman I'm more than happy.

  • Can't find the link now and too busy watching the upcoming picks, but Pierre-Louis was said to be the "most underrated prospect" in this draft class by nfl.si.com

    Too, interesting that the Hawks picked 3 players on this list: http://nfldraftgeek.com/underratedprospects.html

  • He plays like a SS. I almost felt like I was watching a shorter Kam, It will be interesting to see where he lines up.

  • This guy is going to be around a few years. He is exactly what we look for in the LB position, fast, good insticts, and tough. 28 benches at 225?...Holy shchnikies.... :shock:

    Remember we have contracts at LB coming up in the next 2 years, and this guy will be on a rookie contract. K.J. I hope you have a pro bowl year but Ima thinkin' it is your last here.

  • This was Pete's lump of clay pick this year. Definitely a pick with 2015 in mind.

    I like his effort level, but he doesn't have a feel for the game yet. Actually reminds me a lot of Bruce Irvin at OLB, except Irvin looks bigger and faster on the field.

    The regional scout who pounded the table for Kevin Pierre-Louis was adamant that this player would be the next Navarro Bowman. That's pretty interesting, since he's the very same regional scout who worked for the 49ers in 2010 and recommended they draft Bowman.

  • From Seattle Times

    Schneider on whether Pierre-Louis will be a linebacker or safety: “He’s a Will linebacker. That’s what he’s played, he’s played out in space a ton. Yes, he’s a run and hit guy, a really good special teams player. Range, short-close, instincts, great kid. He’s rocked up. He’s just a great package kid.”

  • KPL is a more advanced (at the same stage) and even more athletic version of Malcolm Smith. This is great insurance for 2015 and beyond, as both KJ Wright and Smith will be UFA's after this season, and I expect at least one to sign a bigger deal elsewhere. It also provide insurance against Bruce Irvin not panning out at SAM LB (not that I think he won't pan out), as both Wright and Smith can also play the SAM position (and quite well, Wright in particular). And you can never have enough guys with plus Special Teams potential like KPL.
