Seattle started Friday’s session in Philadelphia by trading down from #34 to #35. Jacksonville traded up to get Cam Robinson on the offensive line, while the Seahawks selected Michigan State defensive line Malik McDowell. They also received Jacksonville’s sixth-round pick. Seattle didn’t trade again for the rest of the night, staying put at #58 to go after LSU offensive lineman Ethan Pocic.
The busy stretch in round 3 saw the Seahawks use pick #90 on Central Florida conerback Shaquill Griffin, followed by Michigan safety Delano Hill at #95. Once again adding to the interior side of the defensive line, Seattle chose North Carolina’s Nazair Jones at #102. With the penultimate pick of the round, the War Room switched things up and snagged Michigan wide receiver Amara Darboh.
Seattle’s NFC West rivals also made a point of using today to add to their respective secondaries. San Francisco grabbed Colorado’s Ahkello Witherspoon to kick off the 3rd round, Arizona drafted former University of Washington star Budda Baker only minutes after Seattle chose McDowell, and the LA Rams got safety Josh Johnson out of Boston College. Rather annoyingly on a personal level, Green Bay started round 2 by picking UW’s Kevin King, and you can direct all your hatred towards me for predicting this.
Remaining Seahawks draft picks:
Round 4: 111 (from 49ers)
Round 5: n/a
Round 6: 187 (from Jaguars), 210
Round 7: 226, 249 (from Falcons)
Day three of the NFL Draft starts tomorrow at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT.
