With the NFL announcing compensatory picks on Friday, the full seven-round draft order is now set, and as expected, the Seahawks will have four picks, having not been awarded any compensatory picks.
Seattle holds picks in the first, third, fourth and fifth rounds, having traded away its picks in Rounds 2, 6 and 7. The Seahawks sent their 2019 second-rounder to Houston in 2017 as part of the trade to acquire Duane Brown, and they traded their sixth and seventh-rounders last year to acquire quarterback Brett Hundley from Green Bay and safety Shalom Luani from Oakland.
It’s worth noting that the Seahawks’ number of picks very well could change during the draft. Under general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have frequently traded back to add picks, particularly in the first round. In fact, the Seahawks haven’t picked in their original first-round spot since taking James Carpenter in 2011.
Here are Seattle’s four picks in the 2019 draft:
- Round 1, 21 overall
- Round 3, 84 overall
- Round 4, 124 overall
- Round 5, 159 overall
