The Seattle Seahawks’ first pick of the 2017 NFL Draft is a defensive one, as interior lineman Malik McDowell was chosen at #35 (Seattle traded its #34 spot to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who chose Cam Robinson). McDowell is out of Michigan State and was a two-year starter with the Spartans.
Seattle goes defense again in the second round, as they did with Jarran Reed in 2016 and Frank Clark in 2015 and Bobby Wagner in 2012. We’re still waiting for the Seahawks to go for an offensive lineman or a cornerback, but they can still get one of those two positions later on this evening, as they have five picks from the end of round 2 and into round 3.
