BigFoot Taken by Seahawks
In Seventh Round of NFL Draft

The 2006 NFL Draft included, for the first time ever, a BigFoot. Harry was taken by the Seattle Seahawks with the 29th overall pick of the seventh round and is projected as a back-up defensive tackle or nose guard.

SEATTLE, WA - This year's NFL Draft held the typical amount of surprises, disappoints and trades with all the scouting services going gaga over the latest hot picks such as USC running back Reggie Bush or a bone-crushing linebacker like Ohio State's AJ Hawk.

However, little attention was in paid in the seventh round of the long and laborious draft held annually in May, when NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced that Seattle Seahawks had selected a Yedi, Harry, a defensive tackle out of the Pacific Northwest woodlands.

"We were simply ecstatic to draft a Yedi," said Seahawk team president Tim Ruskell. "Coach Mike (Holmgren) and I met the Yedi at the combines early this spring and were impressed with his bench press and 40-time as well as his moral make-up."

We envision our Yedi competing for the second team nose tackle position. Plus, the ladies love our BigFoot. That never hurts with tickets, Ruskell said.


ESPN Draft analyst Mel Kiper said it was risky drafting a BigFoot. Especially, since most BigFoot are extremely shy around the public and playing a game in front of 80,000 screaming fans might not be the best thing for a BigFoot. Still, Kiper noted the impressive physical characteristics of BigFoot as worth taking the gamble.

Seattle first became interested in BigFoot Harry when he helped police bring in his cousin, Seamus, for questioning related to a spate of pharmacy store vandalism plaguing Hayden, Idaho, which reported on last week.

Harry convinced Seamus to come in peacefully.

"We know our BigFoot has the moral back bone and physical gifts to succeed in the NFL," added Ruskell. "Now, we have to see if he's got game, too."

BigFoot set the all-time bench press record with 2,895 reps at 220-pounds at the combines in April. Clocking a 4.13 in the 40-yard dash, standing 12' 7, and tipping the scales at 945 lbs, BigFoot is expected to dominate the line of scrimmage.

However, Pittsburgh Steelers Coach, Bill Cowher, whose team beat the Seahawks in last year's Super Bowel in Detroit, was not impressed with BigFoot's intensity and dedication to staying in shape.

"I wasn't sure he had the right mentality to play this game," Cowher said, "He was impressive at the combines, but he should be-he's a friggin BigFoot!"
