Seahawks trade up to select punter Michael Dickson

No kicker came off the board before Dickson, making the Australian the first special teams' player chosen in the draft. He was the second of three running backs to go in the first round this year, slotting in 25 picks behind second overall pick Saquon Barkley and four spots ahead of Georgia's Sony Michel. "I'm first to say that I'm not afraid to block and run the ball". "I think they're excited, versatility is big, so whatever they have planned going forward, I'm just excited to be a part of it and hopefully win some games".

But for a team whose leading running back past year had 240 yards, Penny could be a very big deal indeed.

The Bozeman native and University of Washington tight end was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth round of Saturday's NFL Draft.

Penny ran for 2248 yards last season at San Diego State and 23 touchdowns. The Seahawks traded the 18th pick to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for a late first rounder, a third round and a sixth round pick.

Flowers was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Packers take LS Hunter Bradley, OLB Kendall Donnerson to finish draft
The Seattle Seahawks signed Frazier to a contract as an undrafted free agent just minutes after the draft. The pick of Bradley is simply an attempt to find a long-term answer at long snapper.

But Seattle finished 23rd out of 32 National Football League teams in rushing yardage in 2017.

Even if Penny doesn't work as a three-down back right away, he will still provide an immediate impact to a Seahawks team that only put up one rushing touchdown by a running back in 2017.

"I got to talk to GM John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll". I started to realize they don't mean anything. He had 19 catches for 230 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies last season.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Flowers was the Cowboys' top tackler last season with 79 stops and two interceptions. Wilson was the leading rusher with 586 yards, 346 more than any other player. "And they gave me that call at 27 and I couldn't believe it".
