Delano Hill to Seahawks in 3rd round (#95 overall)

Safety Delano Hill was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the 3rd round (#95 overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.

I’m a little surprised that Hill went this high after not having an extremely productive career at Michigan, but I think the Seahawks are a good fit for him, because he’ll play strong safety in a defense that plays a lot of Cover 3. He’s also a solid tackler.

Also, I don’t hate the Seahawks, so at least I won’t have to swallow hatred in order to root for him, like I’ll have to do with the Browns and Cowboys.
