Seahawks take Michigan’s Darboh at No. 106
Michigan receiver Amara Darboh had to wait until nearly midnight to find out he was going to be playing in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks.
Darboh, who is 6-foot-2, 214 pounds and clocked at 4.45 at the combine, was picked with the No. 106 overall pick, or next to the last pick in the third round Friday night.
Darboh will join teammate, safety Delano Hill with the Seahawks. Hill was picked earlier in the third round.
Darboh joins linebacker Jabrill Peppers (No. 25, Cleveland), defensive end Taco Charlton (No. 28, Dallas), defensive tackle Chris Wormley (No. 74, Baltimore), cornerback Jourdan Lewis (No. 92, Dallas) and Hill (No. 95) to give the Wolverines six players picked in the first three rounds. It was the first time Michigan had a half dozen players picked in the opening three rounds of the draft since 1972.
Darboh had his best season this past fall with 57 receptions for 862 yards and seven TDs to earn second-team All-Big Ten honors.
