The Seahawks’ picks in the NFL draft were predictably unpredictable. Of course they went in the first round for a guy that many people had graded far lower. And of course he played a position (linebacker) that wasn’t considered one of their bigger needs entering the draft. This is a team that, for whatever faults you can find with the drafting results, has the utmost courage of its convictions. The Seahawks care not one iota about how much their selections are panned or where their draft is ranked. They have a resolute vision of the type of player they want and will not be swayed by popular opinion or conventional wisdom.
There is always intrigue about who will be selected No. 1 overall in the NFL draft but let’s not forget the last player picked, also known as Mr. Irrelevant.

The Seattle Seahawks were not in search of projects in this year’s NFL draft
Dezmon Patmon spent his last two seasons at WSU proving he was more than a big body and then padded that assertion, leading the Cougars in receiving yards as a junior and turning in more impressive stats as a senior. Now, the towering wideout will have a chance to do the same at the next level.
Weaver was selected in the sixth round of Saturday’s NFL fraft with the 202 overall pick.

The coronavirus pandemic derailed the draft process for many Big Sky standouts hoping to get picked up in the late rounds of this weekend’s NFL Draft or as a free agent, as a lack of face-to-face evaluation by scouts due to cancellation of pro days has led to more small-school product uncertainty than usual.
Perhaps the most futile exercise in sports writing is trying to grade a draft pick immediately after it is made. Bleacher Report once did that with the Seahawks in 2012 – when they picked up Bobby Wagner, Russell Wilson and Bruce Irvin – and gave them an “F.”
It may not be easy for a 6-foot-4, 225-pound NFL wide receiver prospect to slip onto a closed high school football field without being noticed, and the thick, frizzy bush of black hair on top of Dezmon Patmon’s head probably doesn’t help the Washington State product out that much.
Former Gonzaga Prep's Evan Weaver dominated the field during his time as a Bullpup. From there he left his mark at the University of California, Berkeley, and now he looks to continue plays at the next level.

The Seattle Seahawks delivered one of the surprises of the first round of the NFL draft by selecting Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks with the No. 27 pick Thursday night.
In this most unique of drafts, filled with technological concerns and even uncertainty when real football might return, there was one constant Thursday night: Joe Burrow.
There isn’t much of a consensus among NFL pundits and writers as to where the next stop on Gordon’s tour will be, but the WSU signal-caller – projected to be taken in rounds 5-7 – should have an idea by Saturday night.
Even though the 2020 NFL draft is likely to be driven by quarterbacks, with three passers potentially going within the first six picks, there figures to be a lot of maneuvering by teams to land the top offensive linemen, cornerbacks and wide receivers.
On social media, Washington’s football program uses the same hashtag – #ProDawgs – to reference its many players who have succeeded in the NFL.
In 40 short yards, Easop Winston Jr. came to a troubling realization the day he showed up to the STARS sports training facility in Anaheim this January.
It’s no secret Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider likes to make draft-related trades.
