Seahawks Select East Central Receiver David Moore With No. 226 Overall Pick In 2017 NFL Draft

The Seahawks added their second receiver of the 2017 draft, selecting East Central Oklahoma receiver David Moore.

The Seahawks picked their second receiver of the 2017 draft, selecting David Moore from East Central University in Oklahoma with one of their two seventh-round picks.

Moore, who is 6-foot, 219 pounds, had 57 catches for 878 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior, a year after he set a school record with 13 receiving touchdowns and had 1,079 receiving yards.

Moore said that as a player at a Division II school, he wasn't expecting to be drafted, so getting the call from Seattle was "like a dream come true. I didn't know what to do. I wasn't expecting it, honestly."

A big receiver with excellent speed, Moore was on Seattle's radar even at a small school. He noted that he had "talked to Seattle a lot," meeting with midlands area scout Aaron Hineline.

"I talked to Seattle a lot," Moore said. "They were one of the first teams to come and scout me in my senior year. From the beginning (Hineline) told me, 'you're going to be a Seahawk."

Asked to describe himself as a player, Moore said, "A hard-working player, a player that loves to win, wants to win. A real competitor. I love to compete."
