Seahawks Round-Up: Byron Murphy II Joins Seattle Sports 710AM And Other News

All the Seahawks news you might have missed this week.


Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's going on out there and any news you might have missed, about your Seattle Seahawks this week.

The morning after being drafted and running off a few hours of sleep, the newest Seahawk, Byron Murphy II, joined Brock and Salk on Seattle Sports 710AM.

Thursday night, after 14 offensive players were taken with the first 14 picks, Murphy was available for the Seahawks to select at No. 16, something president of football operations/general manager John Schneider didn't think would happen. Friday morning Murphy said he woke up feeling great, "It's just a blessing, it feels unreal. I'm living the dream."

Hailing from DeSoto, Texas, which Murphy said, "DeSoto is all about ball. We eat, sleep and breathe football. We produce the best of the best. The best talent comes from DeSoto. Guys like Von Miller."

After graduating high school, Murphy played three years at Texas, and graduated in those three years too.

"It took a lot [of work]," Murphy said. "It was kind of easy for me, because in high school I did a program where I could take college classes. I was already taking college classes my freshman year of high school. I took college classes from my freshman year all the way up to my senior year. So, my senior year I graduated with my associate degree. Then when I got to UT, I had so many college credits and hours, and my freshman year, off the field I was already considered a junior in the classroom."

And as for how Murphy will fit into the scheme with the Seahawks, Murphy said how he was utilized at Texas is similar to Seattle. "I feel like [Seattle] is the best fit for me. The d-line coach said he sees me as a three-tech. I love the three, I can play the three, I've been doing it for years."

Friday, during the NFL Draft, Tyler Lockett will be joined by Emerald Ridge High School girls flag football players to announce the Seahawks' third-round draft pick.

Lockett will help to put a spotlight on girls flag football as they announce the Seahawks third round pick. From May 1-10, the Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association will vote whether to sanction girls flag football as a high school sport.

Last season, for the launch of the Throwback Uniforms, the Seahawks designed and launched an entire campaign to pay homage to the 90s. The Seahawks are finalists in launch campaign, micro-site, website/app, and short form video.
