Seahawks draft Mississippi wide receiver DK Metcalf
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Seattle Seahawks focused on defense by drafting safety Marquise Blair from Utah with the first of two second-round picks and later traded up to land Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf with the final pick of the round Friday night. Seattle was set to have the fifth pick of the second round but made its third trade in the first two days of the draft, this time with Carolina. Seattle moved back to the 47th pick and picked up an additional third-round selection, No. 77 overall. That 77th pick was later packaged with a fourth-round selection to New England in exchange for the No. 64 pick, which landed Seattle the big pass catcher it sought in Metcalf.
