Seahawks GM says a team called about trading for Rashaad Penny

San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny right was drafted 27th overall by the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday April 26

The Seahawks traded up with the Broncos to select punter Michael Dickson with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Penny jumps into a depleted Seahawks running back crew as the likely the top option with Chris Carson and Mike Davis backing him up. Ateman was considered a good prospect because of his 6-foot-5 stature and the fact he was a second-team All-Big 12 pick with 59 receptions, 1,156 receiving yards and eight touchdowns last season.

Penny also was named first-team All-American, along with prolific Stanford running back, Bryce Love.

Teams obviously trade up to get certain players every year in the National Football League draft, but a post-selection call about acquiring a player is virtually unprecedented.

Seattle will look to Penny to revitalize their offense and help them return to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2015.

Penny exploded in his senior season rushing 289 times for 2,289 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2017.




Penny was a first-team Associated Press All-America selection and finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting. As for the Penny pick, Prisco stated that "He's a nice runner, but they have so many other needs and there are better backs".

"I think that's one of my strong suits", Dissly said minutes after being drafted.

Rashaad Penny led the NCAA in rushing last season. 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. "I'm just so blessed right now".

Penny is a four-year running back from Mountain West program, San Diego State. They like the way I move. "I asked him, 'Who would you like to go to?'" Long said.
