Seahawks take Oklahoma State safety Tre Flowers in 5th round
With the Seahawks’ second pick in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Seattle took Oklahoma State safety Tre Flowers with the 146th pick.
The Seahawks categorized Flowers as a cornerback on their Twitter account, which makes sense considering how well his 6-foot-3, 202-pound frame and 33 7/8-inch arms fit the bill for what the Hawks like at CB.

An All-Big-12 first team selection in 2017, Flowers led the Cowboys with 79 tackles in 13 games (11 starts). He had two interceptions and a team-high seven pass breakups.
The pick of Flowers came just five picks after Seattle’s selection of linebacker Shaquem Griffin, twin brother of Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin.
