The Seahawks drafted two Michigan players today. GM John Schneider had some fun with Pete Carroll's history with Jim Harbaugh while talking about WR Amara Darboh.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Amara Darboh caught one more pass (58) as a junior than as a senior, but he made much more of his catches in 2016, boosting his yards-per-catch average from 12.5 to 15.1 and nabbing two more scores (7 to 5).

Seahawks end second day with WR Amara Darboh

Seattle adds size, strength and toughness in the Michigan wideout.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Nazair Jones overcame complex regional pain syndrome in high school to have an awfully productive college career, posting 146 tackles and 22 tackles for loss in three seasons at UNC.

With the 106th pick (third round), the Seahawks took Michigan WR Amaro Darboh. Darboh (6-foot-2, 214 pounds) caught 57 balls for 862 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He tested very well athletically at the combine. The Seahawks have Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson at wide receiver. Lockett is coming off of a leg injury, and Richardson is entering the final year of his contract. Darboh will compete to earn a role as a rookie.

Shaq Griffin drafted by Seahawks (0:49)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Four picks after teammate Jourdan Lewis was taken, Delano Hill went 95th to the Seahawks. Hill totaled 50 tackles (4.5 for loss) and three interceptions as a senior at Michigan.

With the 102nd pick (third round), the Seahawks selected North Carolina defensive lineman Nazair Jones. Jones (6-foot-5, 304 pounds) had 70 tackles (9.5 for loss) and 2.5 sacks last season. Jones is the second long defensive lineman that the Seahawks have selected. They took Malik McDowell in the second round. Jones will get a chance to compete for a spot in the defensive line rotation in 2017.

With the 95th pick (third round), the Seahawks took Michigan safety Delano Hill. Hill (6-foot-1, 216 pounds) started 26 games at strong safety during his career with the Wolverines. The Seahawks need depth at safety behind Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas. Hill will have to contribute on special teams right away and could earn a role in sub packages if he impresses the coaches.

ESPN Stats and Information  

In two years as a starter, Shaquill Griffin tallied five interceptions (two taken back for TDs) and 27 passes defensed. He should help a Seahawks defense that lost starting CB DeShawn Shead to a torn ACL in the playoffs.

With the 90th pick (third round), the Seahawks selected Central Florida cornerback Shaquill Griffin. Griffin is 6 feet with 32 3/8-inch arms and tested very well at the combine. This is the highest the Seahawks have ever selected a cornerback during the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era. Given that DeShawn Shead is coming off a serious knee injury, Griffin should have a chance to compete for a starting job opposite Richard Sherman immediately.

Seahawks second-round pick Ethan Pocic said he started games at center, right guard and right tackle in college. He even saw snaps at left tackle during a game. Pocic did not interview with offensive line coach Tom Cable at all during the pre-draft process. He played in a zone-blocking scheme at LSU and said he's not sure where he'll start out with the Seahawks.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Ethan Pocic brings plenty of versatility to the Seahawks' line. He started 17 games at center, nine at right guard and one at right tackle in three seasons at LSU, helping a Tigers back to at least 1,000 rushing yards in each season.

With the 58th pick (second round), the Seahawks took LSU offensive lineman Ethan Pocic. Pocic (6-foot-6, 310 pounds) was a three-year starter who started games at both guard and center with the Tigers. He also saw some action at tackle. Justin Britt played well at center last year but is an unrestricted free agent after the 2017 season. Pocic will likely get a chance to compete for playing time at guard or tackle. And he can also serve as a backup center.

Seahawks bolster O-line with Ethan Pocic

With its second pick in the second round, Seattle added the LSU center, who has quick feet and good hands and is one of the most versatile offensive linemen in the class.

Sheil Kapadia ESPN Writer 

The Seahawks pick again at No. 58. Defensive back Obi Melifonwu is a name to keep in mind. Some others: CB Fabian Moreau, OL Taylor Moton, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR Chris Godwin, DE Jordan Willis and DE Daeshon Hall.

Malik McDowell said the Seahawks had him in for an official visit during the pre-draft process. He said last season (1.5 sacks) was rough but didn't want to use his ankle injury as an excuse. Asked about concerns with his consistency, McDowell said, "I'm motivated." He estimated that he played about 90 percent of his snaps last year at nose tackle.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Malik McDowell tallied only 1.5 sacks in his final year at Michigan State, but he racked up 20 tackles for loss in his final two seasons.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

DT Malik McDowell is a good fit for the Seahawks defensive system. Inside pass rush ability with high-level athleticism. More speed on the interior of the defensive line and another pass rusher in nickel situations.

Questions abound regarding Malik McDowell's work ethic

The Seahawks took the Michigan State defensive tackle, who has top-10 talent, but ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. says he needs the right coaching staff in order to realize his full potential.
