Another first-round pick is under contract as the Seahawks announced they signed running back Rashaad Penny, the 27th overall selection.

Penny, who led the nation in rushing at San Diego State last season, became only the second first-round pick for the Seahawks in the past six drafts.

He rushed for 3,266 yards the past two seasons and caught 34 passes for 359 yards.

The Seahawks have six of nine picks under contract. They signed offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, a fifth-round pick, and quarterback Alex McGough, a seventh-rounder, on Tuesday.

  1. I’m no ‘hawks fan, but im def. intrigued to see what he can do. His measurables and production were ridiculous….will be interesting to see how this translates to on the field, and im sure the ‘Hawks fans are tired of bouncing between several running backs each season.

  2. Penny-pinching Mode signs Rashaad Penny.

    The other first round pick for Seattle is Germain Ifedi. just like Penny, Ifedi was predicted to go in the 2nd to third round before the draft. Shows that just because you pick someone in the first round does not mean that the person you pick is a first round talent.

  3. I love how they picked a RB who had the worst pass protection skills in the draft and are going to place him behind an extremely leaky offensive line. I don’t know what’s worse: the fact that they didn’t draft any impact player on def or that Russell gonna have to run for his life a lot this yr.

    He’s better than Saquon Barkley. Seahawks fans are going to be in here laughing at you in December.
