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?
