RENTON, Wash. —

The Seattle Seahawks continued to address their secondary by drafting Clemson cornerback Byron Maxwell in the sixth round of the NFL draft on Saturday.

Maxwell was the second cornerback and third defensive back taken by the Seahawks on the final day of the draft.

Maxwell tied a school record by playing in 53 games at Clemson, but started only eight games, all of those coming in his final season. Maxwell had 48 tackles and two interceptions his senior season for the Tigers.

Maxwell also played extensively on special teams at Clemson and fits Seattle's framework of drafting larger defensive backs. Maxwell is 6-foot-1, 205 pounds.
