DE - SEA
The Seattle Seahawks have selected defensive end Darrell Taylor with the No. 48 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the New York Jets.
The Seahawks traded picks No. 59 and 101 overall to move up to 48 to select the edge rusher out of Tennessee. He’ll join up with Seattle’s first-round selection LB Jordyn Brooks as the Seahawks clearly have a strategy in mind that focuses on the defensive side of the ball. Taylor registered 8.5 sacks last season with the Volunteers and could be Seattle’s insurance policy if they cannot bring back All-Pro DE Jadeveon Clowney. With his ability to get after the passer, Taylor could have some appeal in IDP leagues.
