Legion of Griffins: Seahawks select one-handed LB Shaquem Griffin

Legion of Griffins: Seahawks select one-handed LB Shaquem Griffin

"I made kind of a tough catch and opened some eyes there", he recalled Saturday. He took over as the starting back past year and wowed as a three-down back.

Intriguingly, Schneider noted following the draft Saturday that he was once with a team that drafted a punter in the third round "that completely failed" as evidence that the drafting of Dickson doesn't mean Ryan is totally a goner just yet. But if no extension is done before the season and if Jones were to show that maybe he could be the future at left tackle, then Seattle might balk at giving Brown $10 million a year or so. Ateman was considered a good prospect because of his 6-foot-5 stature and the fact he was a second-team All-Big 12 pick with 59 receptions, 1,156 receiving yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Texas punter Michael Dickson, the game MVP, kisses the championship trophy after a win over Missouri in the Texas Bowl on Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017, in Houston. "We like to have guys like that", Schneider said.

Will Dissly is staying in Seattle. "We will move him all around and figure it out", Carroll said.

Two of Temple's top three wideouts from last season also landed on National Football League teams. While blocking is his strength, Dissly also had 21 receptions and two TDs as a senior. But this one makes sense as the Seahawks intend to use Tre Flowers at cornerback.

That included any possible deals involving safety Earl Thomas, who was the source of trade speculation as his current contract expires after the 2018 season and he was one of the few Seattle options that could have landed a high draft pick.

The Seahawks picked Green after trading back three spots, sending the 76th pick to Pittsburgh in exchange for Pick No. 79 and a seventh-round pick (220 overall). Seattle indicated this may be the year it takes a QB to develop behind Russell Wilson, the only other QB drafted by the team since 2010.

STILL NEED: The Seahawks addressed their most pressing needs, but could still use more depth at linebacker and an offensive lineman with the ability to play center. Penny joins the ranks of all-time NCAA rushing leader, Donnel Pumphrey and NFL Hall of Fame running back, Marshall Faulk, as San Diego State running backs to be named first-team All-American.
