The Seattle Seahawks drafted its second LSU product of the 2020 Draft, selecting former tight end Stephen Sullivan in the seventh round, 251st overall.

Sullivan was listed as a wide receiver at LSU but projects to play tight end in the NFL. He caught 46 passes for 712 yards and three scores; he also ran for a touchdown against Auburn in 2017.

The Seahawks also drafted former LSU right guard Damien Lewis earlier in the draft.

With Sullivan’s selection, that gives LSU 14 picks in the 2020 draft tying them with 2004 Ohio State for the most picks in a single draft. The class shattered the previous school record of nine set in 2013, and broke Alabama’s SEC record of 12 in 2018. Joe Burrow, K’Lavon Chaisson, Justin Jefferson, Patrick Queen and Clyde Edwards-Helaire were all taken Thursday night in the first round; Grant Delpit and Kristian Fulton were selected Friday night in the second round, while Damien Lewis, Lloyd Cushenberry and Jacob Phillips were also drafted Friday night but in the third round. Saahdiq Charles and Rashard Lawrence were taken earlier Saturday afternoon in the fourth round, and Blake Ferguson was picked in the sixth round.

LSU’s draft class is as follows:
