The defense-oriented Seattle Seahawks added a linebacker with the No. 27 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft with Jordyn Brooks. Brooks led his team in tackles in three of his seasons at Texas Tech, and will join a group that already has a good core, including Bobby Wagner.
It was widely-known that Seattle needed a pass rusher, so the team used their second pick for just that, picking up Tennessee defensive end Darrell Taylor. Taylor is a flexible, versatile player, with raw talent that Seattle can mold to fit their defense. Later on in the draft, the Seahawks used their No. 148 pick to grab another defensive end in Syracuse’s Alton Robinson, to give them some flexibility at the position.
After focusing on the defense, Seattle turned to offensive weapons for Russell Wilson, grabbing tight ends Colby Parkinson and Stephen Sullivan, running back DeeJay Dallas, and receiver Freddie Wayne.
