First they traded down three times in order to go from five picks to ten, before swapping directions and packaging two picks to move back into the second round and select wide receiver D.K. Metcalf out of Ole Miss. The selection of Metcalf comes after the team had already added safety Marquis Blair from Utah earlier in the second round, and after defensive end L.J. Collier from TCU was selected late in the first round. Then, rather than stand pat at 92 in the third round, Pete Carroll and John Schneider moved up four spots in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings to pick 88 where they selected linebacker Cody Barton out of Utah. Barton joins a deep linebacker room that already includes Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Mychal Kendricks [url=http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Cody-Barton-Jersey]http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Cody-Barton-Jersey[/url] , as well as youngsters Shaquem Griffin and Austin Calitro.How do you feel about the Seahawks selection of Cody Barton The Seahawks drafted Rashaad Penny in the first round of the 2018 draft and the plan in the backfield for this year appears to start with a Penny/Chris Carson combination at the top of the depth chart.Injuries and ineffectiveness can lead to plans going awry and that could leave space for another running back to make his mark in the Seattle offense this year. C.J. Prosise got that kind of opportunity as a rookie in 2016, but injuries have limited him to 10 games, 12 carries and nine catches over the last two seasons.Prosise was able to work throughout the offseason, however, and head coach Pete Carroll said last month that he’ll get a shot to compete if he can remain healthy this summer.“It has been great to see him healthy,” Carroll said, via the team’s website. “He has been fit throughout [url=http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/D.K.-Metcalf-Jersey]D.K. Metcalf Jersey[/url] , he’s really strong, worked out really hard in the offseason to get his strength right, and his weight is up, but he’s fit and has really been able to do a little bit of everything. So to add him into the competition is really nice. So we’re fired up about C.J. being back.”The Seahawks were second in the league in rushing attempts last season and they figure to take a similar approach on offense if all is going well this season. That should leave a role open for Prosise as long as he can avoid another stint on the injury list.
