The Seattle Seahawks weren’t quite done with the 2020 NFL Draft.

They did not have a seventh-round pick entering this year’s draft, but they have traded a 2021 sixth-rounder to the Miami Dolphins to get pick #251.

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 - Freddie Swain, WR, Florida

...Then they got a fifth pick at the last-minute.

With pick 251, their definite last pick of this year’s draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected LSU tight end Stephen Sullivan. Thaddeus Moss may have been the more publicized TE given he’s the son of legendary wide receiver Randy Moss, but Stephen Sullivan is a 6’5”, 245 lbs convert from wide receiver to TE. He evidently had an impressive Senior Bowl showing, and that was reason enough for the Seahawks to once again get a TE, albeit one who could just as easily move back to WR if Seattle wants to go that route.
