Seahawks select Idaho LB Korey Toomer

RENTON, Wash. – Korey Toomer became the latest player from the Western Athletic Conference to end up with the Seattle Seahawks when the Idaho linebacker was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL draft on Saturday.

Toomer was taken with the 154th overall selection in the draft. He’s the second linebacker and third player from the WAC taken by the Seahawks in the draft.

Toomer did it all at Idaho. He played a pair of linebacker positions, on the defensive line in nickel situations and even saw some snaps at fullback on offense. Toomer was a second-team all-WAC selection his senior season for the Vandals after recording 68 tackles, including 101/2 tackles for loss and four sacks. He missed the 2010 season with a broken hand.
