2 (48). Darrell Taylor, DE, Tennessee
3 (69). Damien Lewis, G, LSU
4 (133). Colby Parkinson, TE, Stanford

7 (251). Stephen Sullivan, TE, LSU
The draft is often full of interesting contradictions that you just simply have to wait to see how they play out. This is the case with the Seahawks first round pick of Jordyn Brooks. It is fair to suggest this is a reach for a player that they could have gotten about 20 picks later. Yet, the Seahawks deserve the benefit of the doubt as they have been excellent in drafting linebackers in the past. Time will tell.
The window to bring back Clowney might have officially closed with this draft as well. They found two prospects that dropped to them in Taylor and Robinson, and the roster could be set there.
A curious couple of moves was at tight end. They have Olsen and Dissly, and even two decent backups beyond that. By grabbing two more in this draft it could suggest that they weren’t too happy with their starting options.

Draft Grade: Steady
A lot of talk about the Seahawks not finding a replacement pass rusher, but Collier has looked the part. In fact, he looks better as a pass rusher than Clark did coming out of college, without the ugly character issues.
They keep working on rebuilding their secondary, and the two safeties they went after weren’t the most talked about prospects at the position, but fit their defense well.
Nobody finds mid round WRs better than Seattle, and Jennings looks like the next great find here. West Virginia was a tough team to determine what prospects shine because of the system, but Jennings stood out in most games.
Burr-Kirven flies all over the field, and could be a cheap replacement at the position if they run into salary cap issues soon. Homer will be a special teams ace early on.
