The league has released the order of picks for next month’s NFL Draft after the compensatory selections were awarded this week.

The Seahawks still have 10 draft choices, just not the same 10 they had a few weeks ago. Here’s a look at the team’s selections:

First round (no pick) – traded the 25th selection overall to the Vikings in last week’s deal to acquire receiver/returner/runner Percy Harvin.

Second round – 26th pick in the round, 56th overall

Third round – 25th pick in the round, 87th overall

Fourth round – 26th pick in the round, 123rd overall

Fifth round (two picks) – fifth pick in the round, 138th overall, which was acquired from the Raiders in the 2011 trade of linebacker Aaron Curry; 25th pick in the round, 158th overall.

Sixth round – 26th pick in the round, 194th overall

Seventh round (four picks) – 14th pick in the round, 220th overall, which was acquired from the Saints in last year’s trade of linebacker Barrett Ruud; 25th pick in the round, 231st overall; 35th and 36th picks in the round, 241st and 242nd overall, which are compensatory picks. The Seahawks had the eighth pick in the round, 214th overall, from the Bills in last year’s trade of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, but they sent it to the Vikings as part of the trade for Harvin.
