The Seahawks made their second addition to the secondary in the 2019 NFL Draft by selecting Oregon safety Ugochukwu “Ugo” Amadi with their final pick of the fourth round Saturday.

The 5-feet-10, 201-pound Amadi was a durable player in college, having appeared in every game over four seasons with the Ducks. Amadi had 55 tackles, eight passes defended and three interceptions in 2018, two of which were returned for touchdowns. He finished his college career with 165 tackles, three sacks, 25 passes defended and nine interceptions.

Amadi told reporters versatility is a strength, and said the Seahawks talked about using him at multiple spots.

“They want me to do everything – nickel corner, safety, special teams, everything – Swiss army knife,” Amadi said.

The Seahawks had earlier in the draft added depth at safety by selecting Utah’s Marquise Blair 47th overall.
