With their sole pick on the second day of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seahawks looked to improve their pass rush by taking USC defensive end Rasheem Green in the third round.

The Seahawks traded back three spots from No. 76 to No. 79, adding a seventh-round selection (220), on their way to picking Green.

At 6 foot 4 and 275 pounds, Green has a lot to like in size and production at his position. He finished with 10 sacks as a junior in 2017, tying for 10th in the nation. He had three sacks alone in 48-17 Trojans win over Arizona State on Oct. 28.

Green won first-team All-Pac-12 honors after leading the team with 12.5 tackles for loss.

We will have more on the Seahawks’ selection of Green on tonight.
