Seahawks Select C Olu Oluwatimi With 154th Overall Pick

Seattle takes Michigan center Olu Oluwatimi in the 5th round of the 2023 NFL Draft.


With their second of two fifth-round picks, No. 154 overall, the Seahawks continued a Day 3 trend of adding talent at the line of scrimmage, selecting Michigan center Olu Oluwatimi.

Oluwatimi was selected three picks after defensive end and Michigan teammate Mike Morris, and one round after Seattle picked defensive tackle Cameron Young and guard Anthony Bradford.

Oluwatimi transferred to Michigan after three seasons at Virginia, and finished his college career by winning the Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center, and the Outland Trophy as the nation's top offensive or defensive lineman. He was also part of a Michigan line that won the Joe Moore Award for the best offensive line in college football.

At Virginia, Oluwatimi was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy in 2021 when he was a 12-game starter and a second-team All-ACC selection.
