The first round pick is in, and the Seattle Seahawks have selected…wait for it…no one!
John Schneider and Pete Carroll decided to trade their pick to the Minnesota Vikings, which means that the Seahawks will not have a first-round pick for a second straight season. There had been some speculation that the Seahawks might trade down in the draft and stockpile more picks.
As a side note, the Vikings used the pick to take quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
The following are the remaining draft picks for the Seahawks:
Second round: 8 (40) – From Minnesota Vikings
Second round: 32 (64)
Fourth round: 8 (108) – From Minnesota Vikings
Fourth round: 32 (132)
Fifth round: 6 (146) – From Oakland Raiders
Fifth round: 32 (172)
Sixth round: 32 (208)
This is perhaps a less than exciting way to end the first round, but the Seahawks obviously wanted more selections in this draft. Mission accomplished…for now.
Enjoy the rest of the draft!
