Seahawks GM says a team called about trading for Rashaad Penny

Seattle Seahawks 2018 NFL Draft tracker and highlights Earl Thomas Trade Rumors: Seahawks Star May Be Dealt During 2018 NFL Draft

Once again, John Schneider and Pete Carroll left observers a little surprised by the Seattle Seahawks' first selection in the National Football League draft.

National Football League draft analysts issued grades for the first day of the draft, and they're not impressed with the Seahawks picking San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny.

Seattle went into Thursday night with the No. 18 pick, but traded back in a deal with the Packers (as was expected for a team that typically trades back and was without a second- or third-round pick). 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. "I can't wait", Penny said. For three years Penny was stuck behind Donnel Pumphrey, the all-time FBS leading rusher, on the San Diego State depth chart. After Seattle defeated Dallas in Week 16 of last season, Thomas chased down Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and told him, "Come get me". Last season no Seahawks running back had more than 240 yards, or more than 69 carries. "In fact, there are three other running backs who should have been taken before him", Richard Janvrin writes. During that season Dissly caught 55 passes for 917 yards and 11 touchdowns. "The Seahawks could've traded down once more to get Penny", the website writes.

"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. La Canfora has previously reported they wanted a first- and third-round pick.

After two years as a defensive end, Dissly made the switch to tight end his junior and senior years for the Huskies. The Seahawks were in no position to accept another knucklehead. And I'm a big Pete Carroll fan. "To find a guy who has his world squared away and knows who he is, gives us one more chance to be that much closer to where we want to be". The Seahawks will have eight selections on Saturday.

As to whether he can follow closely in the steps of the Beast, that likely will await a further report on the quality of his crotch-grab.
