Tedric Thompson provides safety net for Seattle secondary

The Seattle Seahawks worked to shore up both the run game and the tight end position Saturday, using their fourth-round pick of the National Football League draft to select the University of Washington's Will Dissly.

The Dallas Cowboys are interested in trading for Earl Thomas, and Day 2 of the National Football League draft is the optimal time to acquire the Seattle Seahawks safety.

Penny led the nation in running last season, though a lot of projections had him not getting drafted until the second round.

"It's unbelievable. It wasn't a flawless story by any means, but I'm really glad the way it worked out", Dissly said of his position change. And Penny wasn't even the best running back on the board, " Steven Ruiz writes.

I assure you that we're serious and we would be glad to sit down with you and provide proper security for the funding and work out all the details.

Dissly's fourth-round selection allows him to remain in the state of Washington, joining a Seahawks' club that finished 9-7 last season. Ateman was considered a good prospect because of his 6-foot-5 stature and the fact he was a second-team All-Big 12 pick with 59 receptions, 1,156 receiving yards and eight touchdowns last season. "The Seahawks could've traded down once more to get Penny", the website writes. Other than that the Green Bay Packers are worth mentioning as a team with a need at safety, and a new general manager who has brought a different philosophy. A surprise to everyone but Rashaad Penny himself, that is. I've never experienced that.

Dissly was Montana's Gatorade Player of the Year in 2013 for the undefeated Class AA state champion Hawks, one year after losing the state title game by two to Butte. The Seahawks were in no position to accept another knucklehead.

Learning Michael Dickson's name is now Seattle coach Pete Carroll's problem. "To find a guy who has his world squared away and knows who he is, gives us one more chance to be that much closer to where we want to be".

The Seahawks used the No. 27 selection in the first round to strengthen their commitment to an offense based around the run and put less of the offensive onus on quarterback Russell Wilson.
