2017 NFL Draft: Seattle Seahawks Select Delano Hill With The #95 Overall Pick

Delano Hill joins the Legion of Boom.

And that makes two! Michigan’s Delano Hill out of Cass Tech has been drafted by the Seahawks in the 3rd round, giving Detroit’s Cass Tech two draft picks within four spots in this draft (the other being Jourdan Lewis) - which gives Cass Tech two picks in one draft for the first time ever. (I think this will come up in recruiting.)

Delano Hill will have a great chance at success in Seattle, and he’ll be competing to show he’s got the stuff to succeed at this level. He was an underrated part of Michigan’s secondary in 2016 after little experience going into the year, and he showed speed and durability.

We wish Delano all the best, and hope he does all of his former schools proud. Go Blue!
