The Seattle Seahawks traded up in the 1997 NFL Draft in order to select Florida State tackle Walter Jones as the sixth overall pick.
Over the next 12 seasons, Jones solidified himself as the cornerstone of the Seahawks offensive line while becoming one of the finest tackles in the NFL.
Jones earned the starting left tackle spot during his rookie training camp, was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month in October, and selected as a consensus pick for multiple all-rookie teams that year.
Following the 1999 season, Jones became the first offensive linemen in Seahawks history to be elected to the Pro Bowl. It marked the first of a team-record nine All-Star nods he received in his career.
Jones played an integral part of Shaun Alexander’s MVP season in 2005 when RB ran for franchise-record and league-high 1,880 yards and set NFL mark for TDs in season.
Walter was a first-team selection of the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 2000s.
Jones played in 180 regular season games during his career.
