Day 2. Draft Day.
With 11th pick of the 2nd round Seattle selects, psyche not they don't.
They trade the pick to the Jets and pick up a 5th and a 7th round pick.

Plays bigger than he is (says Pete Carroll), and tackles hard, effectively and fast!

Here's some video on Bobby Wagner.
Former Utah State football player Bobby Wagner was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks with the No. 47 pick overall, the 15th selection of the second round of the National Football League Draft Friday night.
Seattle Seahawks legend Walter Jones announces Utah St. LB Bobby Wagner as the Seahawks 47th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
...linebacker Bobby Wagner out of Utah State. He's a bit undersized (hopefully that doesn't turn into an ongoing theme here), but he's smart, athletic, and he appears to be adept at reading defenses and getting his guys lined up correctly. Honestly, he sounds like a faster, stronger Lofa Tatupu. Hopefully he proves to be more durable, too.
