Seahawks considered taking Rashaad Penny without trading down

Picking Jarran Reed in 2016 was a rare time Seahawks GM John Schneider traded

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

With that pick, the Seahawks took San Diego State running back #Rashaad Penny.

Earl Thomas, pictured reacting after a touchdown reception by Jordy Nelson at Lambeau Field on September 10, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin, could be traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Dallas Cowboys. Penny joins the ranks of all-time NCAA rushing leader, Donnel Pumphrey and NFL Hall of Fame running back, Marshall Faulk, as San Diego State running backs to be named first-team All-American.

Asked whether or not he was familiar with the players on Seattle's roster, Penny replied: "Not really, but I play with them on Madden".

Pro Football Focus said Dissly stayed in pass protect on 78 snaps last season, and didn't allow a single QB pressure.

"He is also going to be a three-down back for us and he can do everything", coach Pete Carroll said of his first-round runner. Ateman was considered a good prospect because of his 6-foot-5 stature and the fact he was a second-team All-Big 12 pick with 59 receptions, 1,156 receiving yards and eight touchdowns last season.

The Seahawks won't trade Thomas just to trade him, or to eliminate the risk of losing him for nothing next offseason.

"I think that's one of my strong suits", Dissly said minutes after being drafted. La Canfora has previously reported they wanted a first- and third-round pick. Other than that the Green Bay Packers are worth mentioning as a team with a need at safety, and a new general manager who has brought a different philosophy.

Dissly originally came to UW as a defensive lineman, playing two years up front for the Huskies. The Seahawks were in no position to accept another knucklehead.

With six rounds to go - rounds two and three Friday starting at 4 p.m., and the remaining four rounds starting at 9 a.m. Saturday - it's way early to say how close the Seahawks are. In that game, Penny had touchdown runs of 23 and 67 yards.
