Picking up picks

By trading down three spots in the first round of the NFL Draft tonight, the Seahawks picked up two more choices.

In the deal with the Eagles that moved the Seahawks from No. 12 to No. 15 in the first round – where they selected West Virginia defensive end Bruce Irvin – they also got Philadelphia’s picks in the fourth round (No. 114 overall) and sixth round (No. 172 overall).

The Seahawks now have seven picks in the remaining six rounds – one each in the second and third rounds, which will be conducted Friday; as well as two in the fourth round, two in the sixth round and one in the seventh round, which will be held Saturday.

The Seahawks-Eagles deal was just one of eight trades made in the first round.
