RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks addressed one of their needs by selecting Western Michigan wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge with the No. 56 overall pick in the second round of the NFL draft.
The Seahawks took the speedy playmaker to add to a wide receiver group that already includes Tyler Locket and DK Metcalf but lacked depth.
Eskridge is undersized at 5-foot-9 and may project as more of a slot receiver in the NFL. But his speed is elite and could end up being a matchup problem for Seattle opponents.
