The Seattle Seahawks didn’t pick in the first round of the prior three NFL drafts, but they finally made a first-round pick after a trade with the Denver Broncos to go from No. 26 to the No. 31 and final pick of Thursday’s action. Seattle wound up selecting Texas AM offensive tackle Germain Ifedi to cap off the evening.
Twitter finally got to react to a Seahawks first-round pick for the first time since 2013 following the slight delay brought on by the Broncos deal.
NFL.com’s Chris Trapasso liked how Ifedi‘s skill set will translate to the pros:
31. #Seahawks: Germain Ifedi – Springy athlete. One of my favorite OTs in ’16 class. Good pass in pro. Some technical issues. Logical pick.
