Starting Thursday, the Seahawks will have new players. Here is how to watch the NFL Draft this weekend.
The Seahawks are already making moves to get more picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. On Tuesday, Seattle traded Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs. In return Seattle received a first-round choice. The Seahawks now have two first round picks this year.
Overall, Seattle still has only five chances to choose new players in this weekend’s draft. Most likely, Seattle will make more moves to add picks. Seattle would have 12 picks in the 2020 draft and could trade some of those to get more in 2019. With John Schneider, anything is possible.
