Rees Odhiambo did not attend the 2016 NFL draft, but instead watched the picks from a friend’s house in Bellevue, Washington. Surrounded by friends and family, Odhiambo recalls watching the first rounds of the draft without being selected. Towards the end of the 3rd round, Odhiambo was convinced he wasn’t going to be drafted that day, so he sat down to eat dinner with his family. Shortly after, Odhiambo got a call from John Schneider and Pete Carroll to inform him he had just been selected by the Seattle Seahawks. Frozen with emotion, Odhiambo dropped to his knees as his family and friends congratulated him.
