Day 3 of the NFL Draft will begin for the Seahawks with two picks in the fourth round, and it’s a round that has been good to GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll in their first two drafts together.
Last year, they got starting strongside linebacker K.J. Wright with the 99th pick overall and promising wide receiver Kris Durham with the 107th pick. In 2010, it was cornerback Walter Thurmond with the 111th pick.
This year, they have picks 106 and 114.
In the later rounds, it’s No. 154 in the fifth round, Nos. 172 and 181 in the sixth round and Nos. 225 and 232 in the seventh round. By trading down in the first and second rounds, the Seahawks picked four extra selections.
And as Schneider said last night, “We’re pleased to be able to do some of the things we’ve done so far, but we’re just kind of turning the corner. So we’re not done yet.”
While the Vikings have nine picks today, the Seahawks, Browns and Steelers each have seven.
