RENTON, Wash. —

The Seattle Seahawks have selected Penn State defensive tackle Jordan Hill with the No. 87 overall pick in the third round of the NFL draft.

After surprising most by selecting a running back in the second round on Friday, the Seahawks went back with the expected in the next round.

At 6-foot-1, 303 pounds, Hill fulfills Seattle's desire to continue adding depth on the defensive line. It was a point of emphasis in free agency with the Seahawks signing Cliff Avril, Tony McDaniel and Michael Bennett.

Hill was a first-team all-Big Ten selection as a senior at Penn State when he had 64 tackles, 4.5 sacks and an interception. Hill started every game in his junior and senior seasons and played in 45 total over four seasons at Penn State.
