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

  • Seahawks still open to adding Kaepernick

The Aztec star returned seven kickoffs for touchdowns in his college career, and added a 70-yard punt return score last season against Nevada. If Penny turns out to be the player Carroll and the Seahawks think he can be, this could go down as the steal of the draft.

The Minnesota Vikings, in a possible quest to finally find an upgrade over Andrew Sendejo alongside Harrison Smith, could also be among the "at least two" teams Silver cited as making an offer for Thomas. I've been since his USC days because I'm an L.A. kid.

Penny ran for 2248 yards last season at San Diego State and 23 touchdowns. In a phone conversation with 406mtsports.com a few weeks ago, he said "I've always kind of hung my hat on the fact that I'm just a kid from Montana and trying to make it big in this world".

The reactions of the on-air broadcasters may have predicted how the National Football League draft grades were going to look for the Seahawks. It don't matter what the projections say.

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. La Canfora has previously reported they wanted a first- and third-round pick.

The chance came when Green Bay wanted to move up from 27th to select Louisville CB Jaire Alexander. A surprise to everyone but Rashaad Penny himself, that is.

"I've never really experienced that", Schneider said, a bit smugly.

That marks a departure from Lynch, who was an anti-authority figure that the players loved and the coaches often resented, but had to tolerate.

Dissly, recruited to Washington as a defensive lineman, played his final two years on offense, catching 21 passes for 289 yards and two scores as a senior. The Seahawks were in no position to accept another knucklehead. John Schneider and Pete Carroll have made careers out of zigging in the first round when people are looking for a zag, so it wouldn't be out of the question to see them do something insane during Friday night's festivities either. That's a lot of experience to give up in one offseason. The Seahawks don't now own a second-round selection.

As to whether he can follow closely in the steps of the Beast, that likely will await a further report on the quality of his crotch-grab.
