The Seahawks have drafted themselves a huge Taylor Swift fan

Golden Tate(notes) was one of the guys who slipped pretty far in the draft. A lot of people had him pegged as a mid- to late-first-round selection, but he wasn't taken until near the end of the second round by the Seattle Seahawks.

Why? Well, if you were a general manager, and you were doing a background check on a young man, and that background check turned up the fact that the gentleman loves the music of Taylor Swift ... wouldn't you drop him a few spots on your draft board?

The ugly truth comes to light:

I think it's sweet. Tate can probably expect an angry phone call from Kanye West, though.

Gracias, Deadspin.
