NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL Draft has entered its final day, and in each of the first three rounds of the draft the Seattle Seahawks added one player in each round.

Thursday they addressed the linebacking corps by selecting Jordyn Brooks out of Texas Tech in the first round. Friday they focused on the trenches, first trading up to select Darrell Taylor out of Tennessee in the second round. Then, they traded down into the third round in order to add offensive lineman Damien Lewis from LSU.

The Hawks held four picks for this final day of the draft, with those picks as follows:

Round 4, Pick 133 - Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

Round 4, Pick 144 - DeeJay Dallas, RB, Miami

Round 5, Pick 148

Round 6, Pick 214

With pick 148 of the fifth round the Seahawks chose Alton Robinson, a defensive end out of Syracuse. This is the first time that Seattle has taken anyone from Syracuse since 2003. Robinson appears to be mostly a pass-rusher, with 19.5 sacks in his career. His apparent knock was his run defense, but if he’s a pass-rush specialist then I think we know what is absolute top priority at the moment.

How do grade the use of pick 148 on Alton Robinson?
