With all of the wheeling and dealing the Seattle Seahawks have been doing since January, I thought we should provide an update on where the team sits in terms of draft selections heading into next month’s draft.
So here are Seattle’s draft picks to my knowledge heading into next season. Seattle does not have a third round pick (sent to San Diego for Charlie Whitehurst).
They also should pick up some compensatory draft picks next year. They lost Nate Burleson, Cory Redding and Lance Laury in free agency, but picked up tight end Chris Baker and offensive linemen Ben Hamilton and Chester Pitts.
According to the league’s collective bargaining agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than acquired in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.
Seahawks 2011 draft selections
One First round pick
One Second round pick
No third round pick
Comment: The Seahawks traded their third round pick from the 2011 draft to San Diego for Charlie Whitehurst.
One Fourth round pick
Comment: This pick is from New England. The Patriots have two picks including Denver’s, and the Hawks will get whichever one is higher. Seattle originally gave up its fourth round pick in a trade for Marshawn Lynch.
Two Fifth round picks
Comment: The Hawks received a conditional pick, believed to be a 5th rounder, from Baltimore in the Josh Wilson trade.
One sixth round pick
Comment: The Hawks traded their original sixth rounder to San Francisco for Kentwan Balmer, but received Detroit’s sixth round pick in a trade for Lawrence Jackson.
Two seventh round picks
Comment: Along with their own pick, the Hawks received a conditional low-round pick from Cleveland for QB Seneca Wallace.
