Seahawks take Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood at No. 123

With pick No. 123 of the fourth round, the Seahawks have selected receiver Kevin Norwood of Alabama, listed at 6-2, 198, Seattle a bigger receiver after it took Paul Richardson in the second round on Friday.

Here is his Alabama bio.

Here is his NFL.com scouting report, which concludes:

“Quicker-than-fast possession receiver with trusted hands a quarterback cherishes in critical situations. Could develop into a reliable, third-down option route runner. Is best with free releases in the slot.”

CBSSports.com rated Norwood as a third-rounder, concluding:

“Norwood became a starter as a junior in 2012 and posted consistent production his final two seasons in Tuscaloosa, leading the Tide with seven receiving scores in 2013. He needs to get stronger to better beat press coverage and hold up vs. physical defenders, but he is a mature route runner with excellent hand/eye coordination and reflexes at the catch point. Norwood isn’t a speed demon, but he accelerates well with natural body control. He isn’t elite in any one area, but solid across the board. He was somewhat overlooked and underutilized at Alabama, but could end up having a better pro than college career.”

Good story here on Norwood’s background, noting his he has a Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s, and is 24 years old.

And here is some video:
