Texas Tech may not be know for its defense, but that didn’t stop the Seattle Seahawks from taking a talented Red Raider with the No. 27 overall pick in the opening round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.
Jordan Brooks (Houston Stratford) was taken by Seattle and became the sixth Texas High School Football alum to be drafted on Thursday. Seattle went 11-5 in 2019 and made it to the NFC Divisional Playoffs.
Brooks made the most out of his senior year as a Red Raider finishing with 108 tackles. He earned All-District 19-5A first team honors twice in high school.
In additon to Brooks, the Detroit Lions selected Ohio State’s Jeff Okudah (South Grand Prairie) third overall, the Dallas Cowboys took Oklahoma wide receiver Cedarian “CeeDee” Lamb (Richmond Foster) 17th overall, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected K’Lavon Chaisson (Galena Park North Shore) 20th overall and the Philadelphia Eagles drafter TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor(Wacahachie) with the 21st pick,
