Hawks select Richard Sherman with No. 154 pick

The Seahawks add some depth at defensive back with the selection of Richard Sherman at No. 154 overall in the fifth round. At 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, Sherman is a big corner that can come in and compete for time at cornerback in Seattle’s press scheme.

Sherman also played receiver for the Cardinal, with 81 career catches.

Early notes show this guy is a 50-foot triple jumper. That’s an example of speed, but also explosiveness. Carroll had to spend some time watching him in the Pac-10. The size and athleticism are intriguing.

Has return skills, too. Has missed games after a partial tear of a patellar tendon.

Has graduated with a degree in communications.
