At 7:09 p.m., the Atlanta Falcons made the final pick of the third round, capping off the second of three days for the NFL Draft.
Almost immediately, the Seahawks draft room transitioned into shutdown mode. Scouts began closing their laptops and organizing their paperwork before everyone gathered for the final meeting of the night. In less than 12 hours, they’ll return to work for the fourth-through-seventh rounds of the draft.
“We’ll be back in action tomorrow!” Coach Pete Carroll excitedly shouted out as the staffers readied to leave the draft room.
