RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks have used their third pick in the fifth round of the NFL draft on Rice tight end Luke Willson.
The pick was No. 158 overall on Saturday. Despite a lackluster senior season, the 6-foot-5, 251-pound Willson grabbed attention during his pro day when he ran a 4.51 40-yard dash.
Willson was named to the Mackey Award watch list to begin his senior season, only to be slowed by injuries. He played in 11 of 13 games, but caught just nine passes for 126 yards and two touchdowns. As a sophomore and junior, Willson had 62 combined catches for 738 yards and six touchdowns.
Willson, a native of Ontario, has already been drafted once. He was taken in fourth-round of the CFL draft by the Toronto Argonauts last spring.
