The Seahawks did not have a pick in the third round and "wanted more picks badly", reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gutekunst shored up the defense in the first three rounds, starting with Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander in the first. He racked up 77 tackles and seven interceptions in three seasons. After trading with the Green Bay Packers, Seattle has the number 76 pick overall and a third rounder.
"I just want to thank them so much for believing in me".

Dallas Cowboy Great Hanging Up The Cleats for the Booth
The 49ers have traded right tackle Trent Brown to the Patriots, a day after drafting Mike McGlinchey as his replacement. Jason Witten is thinking of relinquishing his spot on America's Team for one at the Worldwide Leader in Sports.

Giants' Saquon Barkley will make National Football League contract history
When Saquon Barkley was drafted, most New York Giants fans were happy that their team got their running back of the future. Darnold is a New York Jet after Gang Green scooped him up at third overall, and their careers will forever be compared.
One of the coolest moments of the night came shortly after the Baltimore Ravens selected Lamar Jackson late in the first round. The Packers is the absolute best place that Josh would've landed, and we are all so glad, even if you aren't a Packers fan. Though he only spent one year as a starter for Iowa, he proved he could handle top competition. It took 133 selections but a team finally chose a Missouri player on Saturday as the Green Bay Packers selected wide receiver J'Mon Moore with the 33rd selection in the fourth round, using a compensatory pick to take the All-SEC receiver. "Brown is a big receiver but moves well for that size and dropped just six passes in his college career". Last year, Miami drafted defensive Charles Harris in the first round with the 22nd overall choice. "I think any quarterback would prefer to throw to a bigger target". He's one, when you watch him play, you can feel him close space when the ball's in the air, both playing forward and backward. Many analysts actually considered Jackson to be the best pure corner in the draft this year and the fact that he fell as far as the second round is curious.
