The Seattle Seahawks added another former Michigan Wolverine with their final pick on Day 2 of the 2017 NFL Draft, selecting wide receiver Amara Darboh with the No. 106 overall pick (a compensatory pick).
Darboh is the second Michigan player to be selected by the Seahawks in their first six selections, joining safety Delano Hill. The Seahawks used their other selections to take Michigan State defensive lineman Malik McDowell, LSU offensive lineman Ethan Pocic, Central Florida cornerback Shaquill Griffin and North Carolina defensive lineman Nazair Jones.
Darboh finished his career in Ann Arbor as the team’s leading receiver last season, recording 57 receptions for 862 yards and seven touchdowns. His impressive senior year earned him second-team all-conference.
Adding size and speed (he recorded a 4.45 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine), Darboh should fit in well with a Seahawks wide receiver group already including Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson. This is the fifth-straight draft the Seahawks have drafted a wide receiver.
