The Seahawks finalized a massive trade with the Broncos on Wednesday, a deal that sent quarterback Russell Wilson to Denver for a package that includes a significant haul of draft picks, as well as three players.
And while getting two first-round picks and two second-rounders for Wilson was a big part of the trade, the Seahawks also added three players who have a chance to play big roles in 2022: tight end Noah Fant, defensive end Shelby Harris and quarterback Drew Lock.

Fant, a first-round pick in 2019, started 41 of 47 games played over the past three seasons, totaling 170 receptions for 1,905 yards and 10 touchdowns, including a career-best 68 catches last season for 670 yards and four scores. Fant earned PFWA All-Rookie honors in 2019 after setting Broncos rookie tight end record for catches (40) and yards (562).
Harris, a seven-year veteran, took over a starting role in Denver in 2019, and over the past three seasons has recorded 14.5 sacks, 130 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 28 quarterback hits. A seventh-round pick of the Raiders in 2014, Harris has also spent time in Dallas before signing with the Broncos in 2017. In his career, Harris has played 83 games with 49 starts and recorded 217 tackles, 22.5 sacks, one interception, 25 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and four blocked kicks. His 25 passes defensed since 2017 are tied for the fourth-most among defensive lineman in the NFL.
Lock, a second-round pick out of Missouri in 2019, has started 21 games over three seasons, including 13 starts in 2020, and has completed 59.3 percent of his passes with 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He and Jacob Eason are the only quarterbacks currently on Seattle's roster, though Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said at the NFL scouting combine that he hopes the team can also bring back Geno Smith, who served as Wilson's backup the past three seasons.
