Seahawks 2023 NFL Draft Preview

Get ready for the 2023 NFL Draft with our Seahawks draft preview.


The 2023 NFL Draft starts Thursday, and it's a particularly exciting one for the Seahawks, who have two first-round picks, including No. 5 overall, as well as two second-rounders, and 10 total picks.

With the draft approaching, we put together your one-stop shop of Seahawks draft information to help you get ready for what promises to be a memorable draft weekend.

First off, here is how you can watch, listen to and live stream the draft. Be sure to also download the Seahawks mobile app so you can watch a live stream from inside the Derrick Jensen Draft Room.

The first round begins Thursday at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, then Rounds 2 and 3 will take place Friday, beginning at 4 p.m. The final four rounds take place Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m. Trades can and very likely will change things, but as of now the Seahawks hold the following 10 picks:

  • Round 1, No. 5 overall (from Denver)
  • Round 1, No. 20 overall
  • Round 2, No. 37 overall (from Denver)
  • Round 2, No. 52 overall
  • Round 3, No. 83 overall
  • Round 4, No. 123 overall
  • Round 5, No. 151 overall (from Pittsburgh)
  • Round 5, No. 154 overall
  • Round 6, No. 198 overall
  • Round 7, No. 237 overall

Seahawks general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll are preparing for their 14th draft together, and while they're not going to give away the team's plans ahead of time, they did give plenty of insight into the draft and their process in last week’s pre-draft press conference.

For even more draft insight from Schneider, be sure to check out the weekly radio show he has been doing this offseason on Seattle Sports 710AM.

Also worth checking out before the draft, get a look inside the Seahawks' interviews with prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine, one of the many important steps in the evaluation process leading up to the draft.

This year's draft evaluation process also included the now famous "quarterback selfie tour" with the Seahawks attending the Pro Days of some of the top quarterback prospects, then posing for selfies with those players. Carroll and Schneider discussed that process, which was “a freakin’ blast” and explained why they are still considering a quarterback even after signing Pro-Bowl quarterback to an extension last month.

And speaking of quarterbacks, we led our position-by-position draft preview stories with that spot earlier this month. Below are all stories for each position group, featuring a look at where the Seahawks stand at that position, the team's history drafting that position under Carroll and Schneider, and from esteemed draft analyst Rob Rang, a Top 5 ranking for each group.

For the second year in a row, brought in Rob Rang, one of the best draft analysts in the business, to help with our coverage. Below is what he has contributed so far, in addition to Top 5 rankings in the above stories.
