Perhaps most impressive, Dickson was the MVP of the Texas Bowl victory over Missouri after downing 10 of his 11 punts inside the 20-yard line.

After an eventful offseason that's seen Seattle overhaul its coaching staff and say goodbye to some key veterans, the Seahawks needed to have a successful draft. There are really no other options.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Flowers was the Cowboys' top tackler last season with 79 stops and two interceptions.

General manager John Schneider, though, said the plan is for the team to keep Ryan around long enough to compete with Dickson in camp.

According to ESPN, Dickson is also only the third punter to be drafted after leaving school early.

Research shows that punter was B.J. Sander, taken by Green Bay in 2004. Seattle now list three tight ends on their roster - Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoopes. Dickson left a year of eligibility on the table at Texas.

Flowers was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Here's another one where the reaction might be a year away.

"It's tough watching guys getting drafted that play the same position when I personally feel like I'm a bit better than them".

And Wright, who turns 29 on July 23, is also entering the final year of his contract. The Seahawks took UCF linebacker Shauqem Griffin with pick No. 141.

Both of Temple's starting tackles signed with National Football League teams. "We will move him all around and figure it out", Carroll said.

But if there's any roster squeeze, then Prosise could be in danger if he again shows any issues with durability. Recent drafts have been filled with more misses than hits and started to catch up with Seattle last season when the depth wasn't there to overcome key injuries. That's a valuable role, especially given Prosise' receiving background and big-play ability. Six running backs has carries for the Seahawks last season, and none of them stepped up.

Here are three thoughts on Dickson's selection.

Penny is a four-year running back from Mountain West program, San Diego State. "I just practiced more inside in college, so that's what I felt more comfortable with".
