Longhorns' punter Michael Dickson selected by Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round

Picking Jarran Reed in 2016 was a rare time Seahawks GM John Schneider traded

In his last college game at the Texas Bowl, Dickson's heroics got him named MVP, an achievement rarely given to special teams players, and even more rare for punters.

Yet another former Oklahoma State Cowboys star is off to the National Football League, with the latest coming in the form of safety Tre Flowers, who was selected No. 146 overall in the fifth round by the Seattle Seahawks. He is the third Longhorn to be drafted this weekend, after Connor Williams and Malik Jefferson were picked on Friday night.

Dickson was the second notable name to be drafted by Seattle on Saturday.

Pashinyan , 42, has issued an ultimatum to the authorities, saying he should be elected a new prime minister in a vote on May 1. It did not take long before people began referring to the event as Armenia's "non-violent velvet revolution".

The second day of the National Football League draft will be another expedition for Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider, who is trying to fill a lengthy gap between picks.

Dickson won't be the lone punter in the room when he arrives in Seattle. A master of the coffin corner, he punted 11 times for 452 yards, landing a whopping 10 of those kicks inside Mizzou's 15-yard line with zero touchbacks. "So honoured and thankful to be a part of the Seahawks", Dickson tweeted after the announcement.
