Seahawks take LB Kevin Pierre-Louis of Boston College with pick No. 132

With pick No. 132 of the fourth round, the Seahawks have selected linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis of Boston College.

He is listed at 6-foot-and-a-half and 232 pounds.

CBSSports.com projected him as a 5-6-round pick, concluding:

“A three-star recruit, Pierre-Louis committed to Boston College over offers from Stanford, Duke and Virginia, citing BC’s academics as his deciding factor.

He stepped in from day one as a true freshman starter and teamed with Luke Kuechly to give the Eagles a dominant tackling tandem in 2010 and 2011.

Pierre-Louis set career-bests as a senior in 2013 with 108 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks and his first career interception, earning All-ACC First Team honors.

He has some linebacker/safety ‘tweener traits with his slender frame, but moves very well with the athleticism to cover a large area. Pierre-Louis has trouble disengaging and needs to stay healthy, but he is a sound tackler with NFL smarts – projects as a rangy run-and-chase weak-side linebacker and possible starter in the right scheme.”

NFL.com speculated that he could be used as a strong safety, writing:

“Small-framed tweener who was an experienced, productive, finesse outside linebacker, but likely will have to make the conversion to strong safety, excel on special teams and show usefulness as a box defender to have a chance at the next level.”

Here is his Boston College bio.

He was also recently honored by his hometown of Norwalk, Conn.

And here’s some video:
