With the 8th pick in the 4th round and the 108th pick overall, the Seattle Seahawks have drafted UCLA defensive end, Cassius Marsh. He is the 3rd Bruin to be selected in the 2014 NFL Draft behind Anthony Barr and Xavier Su’a-Filo.

Marsh is everything the Seahawks want in a defensive lineman. He is tough, brutal and throws his body around with little regard for himself. He wants to make the play and he wants to make it now. He was 8th in total tackles for UCLA last season, but second in tackles for a loss and sacks behind Barr.

You want an intense defensive end, Seattle? you got it! Here is a video on Marsh before the 2013 Hyundai Sun Bowl.
Congratulations Mr. Marsh, you are now a Seahawk! Go Bruins! Mike W.R.
