NFC West: Will Franklin

The Rams did add to their numbers at receiver late last week by signing Horace Gant, a former undrafted free agent from Division III St. Olaf. Gant is 6-foot-3 and 214 pounds.
Franklin was a fourth-round pick in 2008. He had seven catches in 13 games as a rookie.
Posted by ESPN.com's Mike SandoThe Seahawks hold the fourth, 37th, 68th, 105th, 137th, 178th, 213th, 245th, 247th and 248th choices in the 2009 draft. For perspective, I've singled out the last four players chosen in those spots.
Seattle drafted one of those players: offensive lineman Ray Willis, taken 105th in 2005, Tim Ruskell's first season as team president.
The Seahawks have four seventh-round choices this year. Ruskell's teams have fared well drafting in the seventh round. The last five players his teams have drafted in the round remain on NFL rosters, all drafted since 2006: Justin Forsett, Brandon Coutu, Steve Vallos, Ryan Plackemeier and Ben Obomanu.
Ninety-five of the 132 seventh-round choices drafted by other teams during the same span remain on NFL rosters.
