NFL Draft day 3: Seahawks select 2 tight ends, runningback, defensive lineman and receiver
We finally had some live sports action to follow over the past three days. The Seattle Seahawks add four more picks in rounds 4-7 as the virtual 2020 NFL Draft wrapped up Saturday with no major glitches.
With their No. 133 pick in the fourth round, Seattle selected Stanford tight end Colby Parkinson. He is widely regarded as a receiving end over a blocking TE. In 2019, he had 48 catches for 589 yards and one touchdown.
At No. 144, Seattle selected another runningback from Miami named DeeJay Dallas. Last year, they selected Canes runningback Travis Homer. Dallas led Miami last year with 115 carries for 693 yards and eight touchdowns. He also was quoted saying something QB Russell Wilson will be happy to hear.
The Seahawks made no trades on day 3, and with their lone fifth round pick, they take a defensive end out of Syracuse in Alton Robinson. He addresses the pass rush need in Seattle, adding to what Darrell Taylor (edge, Tennessee) is expected to bring to the Seahawks.
In three seasons, Robinson had 18.5 sacks and is known as more of a pass-rush specialist than he is a run defender. Robinson is 6-3, 259 lbs.
With their final pick in the 2020 NFL draft, they take WR Freddie Swain from Florida at pick No. 214. Swain recorded the fourth-fastest 40-yard dash time of all SEC wide receivers. All three before him were first-round picks.
If you thought they were going to complete Saturday without a trade, you’d be wrong. They made a late swap with Miami to pick up a seventh round pick, giving the Dolphins a 2021 selection. With it, they take another tight end from LSU, Stephen Sullivan.
