Seattle Seahawks proposed trade No. 3

The last option would be for Seattle to have their eye on a particular prospect who they think might slip down a couple of spots from pick 16. Now, this isn't always the best approach because historically in the NFL draft, teams have reached because of how much they love a prospect. But, this last trade involves some risk.

Adding Russell Wilson, the Steelers are in win-now mode. With some questions on the offensive line, it would make sense for them to move up and add reassurance. They have been linked to Amarius Mims, the athletic tackle out of Georgia. There are a handful of other prospects that might be available at 16 as well -- Taliese Fuaga, Olumuyiwa Fashanu, and Troy Fautanu.

For Seattle, maybe Troy Fautanu is one of the prospects they are hoping falls down to 20. If not him, Chop Robinson, an edge rusher out of Penn State, is someone to keep an eye on. Although they have drafted Derrick Hall and Boye Mafe in consecutive drafts, I think Chop Robinson has the highest ceiling entering the NFL in comparison.

Also, I could be entirely wrong and Seattle takes the best player available approach when trading down. Although, they haven't done that in years past, more so focusing on players with a chip on their shoulder, entering the NFL with a hunger to prove they are worth something. It will certainly be interesting to see what the Seahawks do with their first-round pick on Thursday Night.
