Seahawks draft UW tight end Will Dissly in 4th round

Seahawks draft UW tight end Will Dissly in 4th round”

Those people would have been stunned if the Seahawks had taken him 18th, but coach Pete Carroll said that nearly happened before they found a trade with the Packers that allowed them to move down nine spots.

National Football League draft analysts issued grades for the first day of the draft, and they're not impressed with the Seahawks picking San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny. In return the Seahawks got the 27th pick and the Packers third- and sixth-rounds selections.

Penny was one of the elite running backs in college football last season as he became a full-time starter for the first time.

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". Analyst Chad Reuter states that "I believe Penny is a good back, but they picked him too early". Flowers also had two interceptions that season. He had 19 catches for 230 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies last season.

Man in custody after two Dallas officers, store employee shot
Five police officers in Dallas were killed by a sniper in 2016 in an attack that sent shockwaves through the city and nation. In a tweet about the shooting Tuesday evening, the Dallas Police Department said the officers were critically wounded.

However, the primary issue to a lack of significant movement toward working out a trade has been the high asking price that the Seahawks have placed on Thomas.

Dissly was home in Bozeman when he received the phone call from the Seahawks, stating that it "felt like half the town" was at his draft party. But they also wanted to trade down in the round to add choices in the second or third round. A surprise to everyone but Rashaad Penny himself, that is. And I'm a big Pete Carroll fan. That's a lot of experience to give up in one offseason.

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

"To be honest, I'm just one of those guys that I came from a realistic program and a realistic head coach and he always said I was going to be the best player on the field", Penny explained.
