The Seattle Seahawks entered the 2018 NFL Draft with a myriad of needs that could have been addressed. No position outside of quarterback seemed off limits for Seattle with their first selection. They shocked many by trading down then selecting running back Rashaad Penny out of San Diego State. They stockpiled late in the draft with three of our favorite fifth-rounders. Shaquem Griffin and Jamarco Jones were both seen as Day 2 values that Seattle nabbed much later, while Michael Dickson is easily the best punting prospect we’ve seen in our four years of grading college football.

For even more information on who the Seahawks drafted and possibly some undrafted free agent targets, grab a copy of our 2018 NFL Draft Guide with expanded profiles, scouting reports, PFF signature stats and extensive details on over 300 players you cannot find anywhere else.
