Judson grad Tre Flowers drafted to Seattle Seahawks

Judson grad Tre Flowers drafted to Seattle Seahawks

Center Brad Lundblade, Oklahoma State: Yet another OSU player to join the Seahawks following Chris Carson in 2017 and 2018 draftee Tre Flowers, Lundblade was a First Team All-Big 12 pick as a senior in 2017.

Ezekiel Elliott #21 of the Dallas Cowboys crosses the goal line to score a rushing touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium on October 2, 2016 in Santa Clara, California. The trade landed Seattle a coveted third-round pick and a selection in the sixth round.

Penny ranked second among draft-eligible running backs in elusive rating in 2017 (128.6). But the start of the draft has ramped things up, with draft picks as more urgent trade capital and teams perhaps facing an unfulfilled need at safety by the end of the weekend.

The Seahawks do have a lot of running backs and any of them could eclipse Penny due to Seattle's "always compete" mentality. That's fifth all-time for rushing yards in a season in the NCAA.

With the first-round selection, Penny becomes the Aztecs' first such pick since Kyle Turley was chosen eighth overall in 1998.

Penny was asked via conference call with the media if he was surprised at where he was drafted.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider expressed their own excitement when they informed the running back he was about to be selected.

There's also a case to be made on the other side of the ball: this team was at its best when the offense ran through Marshawn Lynch. The lack of a running game affected Wilson as a passer as well, as defenses didn't have to commit an extra safety to stopping the run, leading to smaller throwing windows and some tentative decisions by Wilson.

"That definitely means that they need someone in there to help and I am the right guy for that", Penny continued. "I think they're excited, versatility is big, so whatever they have planned going forward, I'm just excited to be a part of it and hopefully win some games".

"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.

Penny was the second running back selected after Penn State's Saquon Barkley was taken No. 2 overall.
