Welcome to the third day of the NFL Draft, which will be a busy one for the Seahawks.
In addition to having seven picks in the final four rounds, first-round draft choice James Carpenter will be introduced during a news conference this morning. Just saw Carpenter in the hallway, and he is one XXXL-sized young man. His parents made the trip with him, and it was difficult to tell who had the biggest smile – mom, dad or son.
The Seahawks also will start picking early, as they have the second and 10th selections in the fourth round, which is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
Here’s the lineup of the Seahawks’ remaining picks after yesterday’s trade with the Detroit Lions to move out of the second round and back into the third round – when they selected Wisconsin guard John Moffitt:
Fourth round (2) – 2nd pick, 99th overall; 10th pick, 107th overall
Fifth round (2) – 23rd pick, 154th overall; 25th, 156th overall
Sixth round (1) – 8th pick, 173rd overall
Seventh round (2) – 2nd pick, 205th overall; 41st pick, 242nd overall
