NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks came into the 2019 NFL Draft with only five draft picks, but finished with eleven. They started Thursday by taking defensive end L.J. Collier out of TCU, and finished Saturday by trading back into the seventh-round to select wide receiver John Ursua from Hawaii.

As for Seattle’s NFC West rivals, the Arizona Cardinals chose Kyler Murray #1 overall, and on Friday they traded last year’s first-round QB Josh Rosen to the Miami Dolphins. Arizona drafted three wide receivers, including a guy named “KeeSean Johnson,” who’s clearly just Keyshawn trying to sneak back into the NFL. They also picked up Byron Murphy in the second-round, meaning Murphy will be reunited with his former Washington Huskies teammate Budda Baker. I only wish they were not in Arizona, but with the Seahawks.

Anyway, the San Francisco 49ers had the 2nd overall pick and unsurprisingly went with Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa. They drafted two WRs: Deebo Samuel from South Carolina and Jalen Hurd from Baylor. Oh yes, and they got themselves a punter in the 4th round. Michael Dickson has them shook and they realized they need to up their punting game.

Lastly, the defending NFC champion Los Angeles Rams did a ton of trading down throughout the draft, and used their first pick at 61st overall. Former Washington safety Taylor Rapp is unfortunately headed to Los Angeles, and as if we didn’t see enough Huskies go to NFC West opposition, they also picked up DT Greg Gaines in the 4th round. Another pick of note was RB Darrell Henderson of Memphis, who will presumably be Todd Gurley’s backup after C.J. Anderson went to the Detroit Lions.

Here’s a neat and tidy list of the draft classes of the other three NFC West teams.
