In a move that likely surprised no one who has paid attention to Seahawks drafts over the last decade, the Seahawks traded their first pick in the 2019 draft, sending the 21st pick to Green Bay in exchange for Green Bay’s first-rounder, the 30th overall pick, as well as two fourth-rounders (114 and 118 overall).
The Packers used that pick to acquire Maryland safety Darnell Savage.
This marks the eighth straight year the Seahawks have traded their original first-round pick, either to move back or prior to the draft for a veteran player. Seattle last used it’s initial first-round pick on James Carpenter in 2011.
The pick gives the Seahawks seven total picks after coming into the week with just four. As things stand now, here are Seattle’s seven picks in the 2019 draft:
Round 1, 29 overall
Round 1, 30 overall
Round 3, 92 overall
Round 4, 114 overall
Round 4, 118 overall
Round 4, 124 overall
Round 5, 159 overall
