Flowers selected as 146th pick in NFL Draft

Flowers selected as 146th pick in NFL Draft

Will Dissly is staying in Seattle.

Flowers, 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds, was chosen in the fifth round with the 146th overall pick in the NFL Draft on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. He was selected with the 120th pick.

Many draft experts pointed to Dissly's abilities as a blocking tight end, particularly, as reason for the Seahawks to select the Bozeman product.

Trump Says Mueller's Leaked Questions Don't Involve Collusion. (Actually, They Do.)
Former federal prosecutors reacted to the leaked questions on CNN. "He was insane , a real nut job", Trump told the Russians . Trump incorrectly claimed there were no questions on the list about collusion, which he dismissed as "a made up, phony crime".

The tight end position thinned considerably in the offseason, as the Seahawks lost both Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson to free agency. Dissly will now fill in at that role. "Football is football. I'm going to compete wherever I am at on the field". Dissly says those skills, paired with his size and athleticism, are what he prides himself on. I'm still excited to learn the nuances, the little details that can make me a really good player. "Montana is a great place but it's kind of hard to leave there and when you do it's nice to have things work out in your favor".

Penny watched the draft from his home in Norwalk, near Los Angeles, surrounded by family and friends.

Dissly was Montana's Gatorade Player of the Year in 2013 for the undefeated Class AA state champion Hawks, one year after losing the state title game by two to Butte. He had a career day against Montana in September, catching five passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns. His work earned him second-team All Pac-12 honors.
