Seahawks Head Into Friday With "Really Cool" Opportunity To Add Talent In 2nd & 3rd Rounds Of 2022 NFL Draft

With three picks, including two in the second round, the Seahawks are looking to add a lot of talent on Day 2 of the draft.


The Seahawks used their first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to add Charles Cross, a player general manager John Schneider called "a pillar at left tackle."

But as high as Seattle's hopes are for Cross and what he can bring to the offense, the Seahawks by no means feel like they're done adding top-end talent in this draft, not with the picks they have at their disposal on Friday.

Not long after the first round had come to an end Thursday night and after Schneider and Pete Carroll met with the media to talk about Cross, Carroll left the interview by exclaiming, "Let's do some damage tomorrow, huh?"

And the Seahawks are indeed in a great position to do some damage in the second and third rounds. Thanks to the trade that sent Russell Wilson to Denver, the Seahawks not only added the No. 9 pick they used on Cross, but also the 40th overall pick, as well as first and second-rounders next year. With their own picks in the second and third rounds, that means the Seahawks head into Friday holding picks No. 40, 41 and 72, putting them in a position to draft three quality players with those picks, or giving them the flexibility to move around if they so desire.

"It's going to be awesome," Schneider said of Seattle's three picks Friday, including the eighth and ninth picks when things get going at 4 p.m. PT.

"It's going to be really cool," Carroll added. "It's exciting."
