NFL Draft Results: Seahawks select Jacob Martin in sixth round

With the 186th pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks have selected edge rusher Jacob Martin, out of Temple.

With the Seahawks looking for an edge defender following the trade of Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril’s uncertain future, Martin could fill a key role for the team. Martin did not receive a combine invite from the NFL, so should meet the “chip on the shoulder” requirement with which the Seahawks have had success in recent seasons.

Jake is the brother of Josh Martin, a five-year NFL veteran who started nine games at linebacker for the Jets in 2017. Jake’s dream of joining his brother in the league became closer to a reality last fall, as he earned second-team All-American Athletic Conference honors with 39 tackles, 11 for loss, and eight sacks in 12 games. He had been a reserve all but one game the previous three years, recording 18 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 2016 after combining for 18 in 2014 (13, 1.5 for loss) and 2015 (five, 2.5 for loss, sack).
