The Seahawks just selected Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner in the second round of the NFL Draft.
The selection was made with the 15th pick in the round (47th overall) rather than the 11th after the Seahawks traded down with the Jets. The Seahawks added two more picks in the deal – one in the fifth round and one in the seventh round.
The scenario was similar to the first round on Thursday night, when the Seahawks also traded back and added two picks but still got a player they were targeting.
Wagner, 6-foot, 241, was a productive four-year starter at inside linebacker at Utah State. He brings needed depth at the position for the Seahawks.
