NFL 2005 Draft: Pick Number twenty six 26 - Chris Spencer, Seattle Seahawks
Chris Spencer was the number twenty six 26 pick of the 2005 NFL Draft. Chris Spencer went to the Seattle Seahawks as a Center. Round one 1 pick 26. Twenty sixth pick.
Chris Spencer went to Ole Miss.
This is what the Ole Miss said about him:
Spencer was an outstanding run blocker, as he was powerful and dominating at offensive tackle. He helped lead Madison Central to the Class 5A state championship in 1999 as the Jaguars went a perfect 15-0. Spencer won the Class 5A Super Heavyweight power-lifting championship of Mississippi his junior and senior years, and holds all the prep lift records. During his senior season, he broke his own state record in the power-lifting competition, which is determined by combined weight lifted in three events (the squat, the bench press and the dead lift) when he totaled 1,675 pounds. That effort broke his own state record of 1,665 pounds set in South State competition earlier in the year.

Comments: Surprising pick for the Seahawks given that they have no receivers who can actually catch the ball. I think Spencer will do well, but the Seahawks should have made a better pick.
