Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry. He was perhaps the best player in the draft, and Seattle got good value for him with the No. 4 overall pick. And Curry is a guy who will come in and contribute right away for Seattle, playing strong-side outside linebacker in Seattle's 4-3 scheme. A closer look at the Seahawks' picks: Round 1/4 - Aaron Curry, LB, 6-2, 254, Wake Forest...Even though some scouts considered Curry a reach as top-five pick because he's not noted as a pass rusher, the Seahawks see him as a perfect fit for their scheme because of his ability to play in space, play physical against the run and rush the passer as a blitzer. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Aaron Curry News
08/27/13 - LB Aaron Curry had his contract terminated by the Giants Monday.
07/30/13 - LB Aaron Curry, who hopes to revive his career with the Giants as a potential strong-side linebacker, said that he's managed to get his weight down to 250 over the break, a big stepping-stone in his quest to make an NFL roster.
Curry said he is gaining a comfort level with the playbook and believes that in time, if given a chance, he can become the playmaker that he was expected to be when he was taken in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft, the fourth overall pick, by the Seahawks.
Curry said, "Sometimes I think we always think that the playmaker is a guy that has 30 sacks or 15 sacks, but sometimes you have a nose tackle and he's an extreme playmaker because he demands a double-team and he doesn't get any glory or you have a (middle) linebacker that fullbacks fear. To me, they're considered playmakers because without them the next guy can't make that spectacular play."
11/21/12 - LB Aaron Curry, who came to the Raiders last season and immediately became the weak side starter, was waived two games after returning from a long rehab because of sore knees.

Curry, the former No. 4 overall pick by Seattle out of Wake Forest, cost the Raiders a seventh-round pick in the 2012 draft and the Seahawks will also get Oakland's fifth-round selection in 2012.
