Get to know Seahawks first-round draft pick, Rashaad Penny

This scenario ends with the Seahawks possessing three picks on Day 2, allowing the team to target more than one player near the top of their draft board. We didn't look at it like that.

Carroll said the reports of what happened with the intended workout were "blown up".

Former San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny was absent from almost every single mock draft first round prior to Thursday, but Penny was the second running back selected Thursday night after Saquon Barkley, going 27th overall to Seattle.

"It's unbelievable. It wasn't a flawless story by any means, but I'm really glad the way it worked out", Dissly said of his position change. Not to knock on Penny but there are so many other back the Seahawks could have taken in the draft.

Coming out of San Diego State, Penny's collegiate profile and athleticism put him on the map in the pre-draft process, but if you're confused as to why he was a first-rounder, maybe this will help.

"In my opinion, he was purely downgraded by a medical", said Schneider, who said Green passed his physical exam. He made the Pro Bowl for the sixth time in seven years.

The talk of Seattle possible trading their starting safety since 2010 gained steam at the league's scouting combine in Indianapolis in March. "I'm just so blessed right now".

"There is a lot of stuff we can't get into".

Flowers was back in Converse this weekend to watch the draft and was with his family when the call from Seattle came.

"It's tough watching guys getting drafted that play the same position, when I personally feel like I'm a bit better than them", he said. Now I see it's real. Then, on Day 3, the Seahawks are linked to Ohio State defensive end Tyquan Lewis, Virginia Tech free safety Terrell Edmunds, Appalachian State guard Colby Gossett, Texas defensive tackle Poona Ford, and Texas Tech receiver Dylan Cantrell. The total hits the house goal of 10 picks for the draft, even if the selections were bottom-heavy.

"We haven't had a good update in a long time", Carroll said.

The Seahawks kick-off their 2018 season Sunday Sept. 9 where they face off against the Denver Broncos in Colorado.
