Seattle Seahawks Trade Rumors: Blockbuster with Cleveland Browns?

Dissly was also named to the 2014 Parade all-America Football Team, joining notable current NFL players like Leonard Fournette, Myles Garrett, Deshaun Watson, and future Washington teammate Budda Baker. "Four years, guys rotate in, rotate out, and so we had kind of heard all his stories, we had kind of heard every story, every amusing anecdote that he had".

Carroll said Green was examined twice by Seahawks doctors.

With the 27th pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks surprised the prognosticators by selecting San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny. He made the Pro Bowl for the sixth time in seven years.

"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.

General manager John Schneider said following the second and third rounds of the National Football League draft Friday night none of the calls he's fielded for weeks, through the first two days of this draft, were even worthy of any consideration for Seattle to trade its three-time All-Pro safety. As long as Penny stays healthy, he has a strong possibility to be remembered in retrospect as the top back taken in this year's NFL Draft.

In a momentary attack of conscience, Schneider owned up to the fact that he answered questions about trading Thomas at the scouting combine in February.

He certainly landed in an environment where he has a real shot of starting immediately. "I'm just so blessed right now". He spent a whole day with us, talking with a lot of people he didn't know and was very confident.

Penny watched the draft from his home in Norwalk, near Los Angeles, surrounded by family and friends. So adding a player of Penny's caliber will make a significant difference for the Seahawks. "They are really happy for me". Flowers was primarily a safety at Oklahoma State, but his size makes him a ideal fit for cornerback in Seattle. The total hits the house goal of 10 picks for the draft, even if the selections were bottom-heavy. Schneider said there were no current talks about an extension, but much time remains. In 2017, Penny finally got his chance to start.
