The Seahawks don't now own a second-round selection.
Yet another former Oklahoma State Cowboys star is off to the National Football League, with the latest coming in the form of safety Tre Flowers, who was selected No. 146 overall in the fifth round by the Seattle Seahawks.
The newest member of the Seattle Seahawks is excited, to say the least. Just 20 after three college years, Green seems like a decent shot to replace someday defensive ends Michael Bennett or Cliff Avril, but too raw to be of immediate starting help.
"We feel like we made great decisions all the way through and we'll see how it goes".
"Yeah, we talked to a number of clubs about him", Schneider said.
With those four players, as well as former Rams starter Maurice Alexander already on the depth chart, Flowers would face long odds to stick on the roster as a safety. That would allow the Seahawks to regain a second-round pick - which it had parted with in the Sheldon Richardson trade. If anything, it has progressively become more evident that his time in Seattle could be coming to an end in the near future.

They've now missed out for the past three seasons, which is tied for the longest playoff drought in their 23-year history. The Cowboys took Leighton Vander Esch of Boise State with the 19th pick in the first round of the draft Thursday night.

Superior Fire Chief Steve Panger said the fire was out by 11:20 a.m., although smoke could still be seen rising from the plant. Husky Energy concluded its purchase of the refinery in November, spending $492 million to acquire the refinery from Calumet.

The 35 years-old, achieved 239 appearances, with 229 starts and notching 1,152 catches for 12,448-yard s and 68 touchdowns. Brown is entering the final year of his contract and San Francisco drafted McGlinchey ninth overall to take his role.
He also has the speed and the moves to evade tackles in open space both on offense and on special teams. Perhaps most impressive, Dickson was the MVP of the Texas Bowl victory over Missouri after downing 10 of his 11 punts inside the 20-yard line. "I'm really excited to grow and be a contributor for the Hawks".
"We're still battling on all fronts, on all guys".
Actually, teams spend months laying the ground work, putting the same kind of intense scrutiny into players they think may be available as free agents as they do into those they think will get drafted - often, teams sign players they had their eye on drafting.
Among the many challenges he faces with this position switch, Flowers will need to master Seattle's kick-step technique. Flowers was primarily a safety at Oklahoma State, but his size makes him a flawless fit for cornerback in Seattle. Seattle projects Jones as a left tackle.
The pick was a bit of a surprise, as Penny was typically not ahead of the likes of Derrius Guice, Ronald Jones and Sony Michel on rankings and mock drafts.
