2023 Draft Order Set, Seahawks Hold 10 Picks, Including Four In First Two Rounds

The NFL released the round-by-round draft order ahead of next month’s draft.


The NFL released the full round-by-round order for the 2023 draft on Friday, and as expected, the Seahawks hold 10 picks, including two first-round picks and two second-rounders.

In addition to their own picks in each of the seven rounds, the Seahawks have three extra picks via trades: Denver's first and second-round picks from last year's Russell Wilson trade, and Pittsburgh's fifth-rounder, which was acquired in a 2021 trade that sent Ahkello Witherspoon to the Steelers.

The No. 5 overall pick, which originally belonged to Denver, is Seattle's highest pick since 2009 when they had the No. 4 overall pick.

Here are all 10 of Seattle's picks in the 2023 draft, which begins on Thursday, April 27 in Kansas City:
