Seahawks select USC defensive end Rasheem Green in third round

Share

Flowers was primarily a safety at Oklahoma State, but his size makes him a flawless fit for cornerback in Seattle.

Flowers joins quarterback Mason Rudolph and receiver James Washington (both taken by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday) as Cowboys players selected in this year's draft. No kicker came off the board before Dickson, making the Australian the first special teams' player chosen in the draft.

Dissly started his Washington career at defensive end, but switched to tight end before his junior season. He finished his senior year with 21 catches for 289 yards and the two scores against the Griz. He had a career day against Montana in September, catching five passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns.

"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 should be a plug-and-play running back that should immediately make the Seahawks better. "I'm really excited to grow and be a contributor for the Hawks".

The Seattle Seahawks drafted Flowers as the ninth pick in the fifth round.

But aside from Griffin's selection, general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll made clear the Seahawks intent to re-establish the core tenants of how they want to play: run the ball, play aggressive defense and rely on field position. Dickson was regarded as the top punter available in the draft and could be a sign that Jon Ryan's tenure in Seattle is coming to an end. "Obviously I'm looking to grow my game as much as possible but I always put my pride in my run blocking. That's what I think is the complete package and I think they understand the body type, 6-foot4, 260-pound tight end is kind of what you look for", he said.

Dissly told 406mtsports.com that he would be in Bozeman over the weekend with family and friends watching the NFL Draft.
