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 at 27th overall. Friday they focused on the trenches, first trading up to select edge rusher 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 - Alton Robinson, DE, Syracuse

Round 6, Pick 214

With pick 214, likely their last pick of this year’s draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Florida wide receiver Freddie Swain. In a deep wide receiver draft class, Seattle held off on drafting any of the more notable names, but they didn’t ignore WR entirely. Swain’s 2019 season saw him catch 38 passes for 517 yards and 7 touchdowns, and it looks like he’s best utilized in the slot.
