Seahawks Take UNC's Wilson In 4th Round

RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks have used their second pick of the fourth round on North Carolina defensive end E.J. Wilson.

Saturday morning's choice at 127th overall is Seattle's first attempt to address its need for a pass rusher.

The Seahawks recently watched former Pro Bowl defensive end Patrick Kerney retire. That was after they traded end Darryl Tapp last month.

Wilson was a three-year starter for the Tar Heels. He had 12 sacks and 37 career starts for North Carolina.

He is known to have surprising quickness for being 6-foot-3 and 286 pounds.
