RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Moving up in the third round, the Seattle Seahawks selected wide receiver/kick returner Tyler Lockett with the No. 69 pick in the NFL draft.

Seattle traded with Washington to move up from the No. 95 overall pick. Seattle swapped third round spots with Washington and sent picks in the fourth (No. 112), fifth (167) and sixth (181) rounds back to the Redskins.

Lockett is the all-time leading receiver in Kansas State history and was a two-time Big 12 special teams player of the year. Seattle was looking to improve its return game after the trade of Percy Harvin in the middle of last season.

Lockett also provides depth at wide receiver, especially with the questions about when Paul Richardson will be healthy after tearing his ACL in the NFC playoffs last January.
