    • Compensatory Pick (compensatory picks cannot be traded)

The Seahawks could wind up adding or subtracting picks via trades either before or during the draft process. Last year, Seattle entered the draft with a League-high 11 picks, but came away with just eight players after trading three picks to the Washington Redskins to move up in the third round to select wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who went on to earn Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro honors as a returner his rookie season.

The first round of the 2016 draft begins at 5 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 28.  The second and third rounds get going at 4 p.m. on Friday, April 29 followed by rounds four through seven at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 30.
