# Seahawks LB Aaron Curry confirms role has changed. He's been demoted to 2nd unit. KJ Wright working with first unit: http://***********/3d3p9nf

Wow. The 2009 class really sucks. Curry, Jackson, Smith, Maybin, Heyward-Bey, Monroe, Crabtree, Moreno, English, Jerry have all been major disappointments.
This could be one of the more disappointing drafts of the modern era.

Man I remember Curry supposedly being a "can't miss" prospect who was the "best player" of that draft class.

Maybe the kid just needs a change in scenery. It's crazy that he's been so disappointing.

Curry was vastly over-rated, but is a genuinely good player.

Jackson will probably be really successful... but really successful as a 3-4 end doesn't make much noise anyways unless you're balls deep in the east coast like Dick Seymour.
Boom...roasted.

He's all brawn and no brains. I think he's still an intriguing player in that he's so huge and fast and what not, but it doesn't show up on gameday.

I'm glad the Broncos made those trades to get back into the second round of the 2009 draft!

Especially when everyone (except them) knew 2010 was going to be better.

Its a shame Curry hasn't made the mental step forward to match up with his physical tools. Makes you wonder how much of it is coaching though. He's got solid numbers for a strong side linebacker including 5.5 sacks in two years. Makes you wonder what a change of scenery would do for him.

I thought he'd be best used in a 3-4 front coming out. Seattle now has no guaranteed money owed to him next year so this makes it highly probable they'll cut him at the end of the year.

He had a lot of speed and was good at everything but rushing the passer. I don't think you ever take a guy that high in front 7 that can't rush the passer.

There's another player from the Wake Forest defense that was drafted high who hasn't lived up to expectations. If I could only remember his name...

Funny enough, KJ Wright was drafted using our pick that we gave away to New England (who then traded it to Seattle) :-)!

I thought one of the reasons he went so high was his high SAT scores.

I'd like to see him at MLB if he were to ever come here myself.

6'2", 255, strong enough to play strong side, fast enough to cover on nickel downs. Not out of the question that he could pick up MLB. The big question is why he hasn't gotten it done in Seattle. Bad coaching, missed too much time to injuries, nothing between the ears, or a combination of all three.
