After trading down with the Denver Broncos from the No. 26 to No. 31 overall picks, and swooping up another third-round pick (No. 94 overall) in the process, the Seahawks selected Texas A&M offensive tackle Germain Ifedi, the first time Seattle has used its first-round draft pick since taking Bruce Irvin No. 15 overall four years ago.
