Seahawks select Aztecs running back at number 27

Seattle acquired the pick after trading down in the first round on Thursday and eventually drafting San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny at No. 27 overall. And I'm a big Pete Carroll fan. He always said I was going to be the best player on the field. I'm just willing to do my job to help win and it's going to be an wonderful process.

"Now that it's real, it doesn't matter what the projections say".

A day after multiple teams traded up to draft quarterbacks in the first round, don't be surprised to see a star player get moved on Day No.2 of the 2018 NFL Draft. "Rashaad said he wanted to go to the Seahawks". He's also been a shotgun runner at times, too.

On Friday, Michael Silver of NFL Network reported a "deal could still go down today or tonight" during the second and third rounds of the 2018 NFL draft.

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. Seattle has one pick in the fourth round, four fifth-round picks, one in the sixth round and two in the seventh round. His credentials are significant and he enters the National Football League without having a heavy load of carries in college, which helped separate Penny from some other running back options.

"I think they really appreciated the complete player, the complete tight end that I am", Dissly said in a conference call with reporters on Saturday morning. The Seahawks had one rushing touchdown by a running back in 2017. Last year, Wilson was the top rusher with 586 yards and three touchdowns. Unable to pass Pumphrey on the depth chart, Penny found his reps returning kickoffs.

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 made kind of a tough catch and opened some eyes there", he recalled Saturday. "I'm just so blessed right now".

"It's unbelievable. It wasn't a ideal story by any means, but I'm really glad the way it worked out", Dissly said of his position change.
