When questioned on that pick, Dungy (or whomever) stated Freeney's speed was vital to their pass rush. That speed KILLS at DE when you're playing with the lead. Dungy tailored his defense to the offense.
I think we could see similar in Seattle. Which is why I kind of expect to see Seattle sniff around the Bowes and Wallaces of the world. Add a true #1 receiver, without having to give up Sydney or Miller, and that Seahawks offense may vault to the best in the NFL.
I wont say this is a random thought, more a loony rambling.
