Seahawks Set Their Sights on 2013 NFL Draft’s Later Rounds
With no first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, it’s not a question of who the Seahawks will pick, but when.
Seattle has no first round pick in this year’s draft, having traded it to Minnesota for wideout Percy Harvin. General Manager John Schneider has said more than once that the Seahawks were not going to get a player of Harvin’s abilility with a college first rounder. None the less, Seattle will have 10 picks in the draft that starts on Thursday.
Here’s where the Seahawks will pick on Friday, the second day of the draft.

Keep in mind that quarterback Russell Wilson was a third round pick, defensive backs Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor were fifth rounders, and linebacker K.J. Wright was a fourth rounder. All contributed greatly to the Seahawks’ success last season.
Even offensive lineman J.R. Sweezy, a converted defensive lineman, started last year’s playoff game with Atlanta. Sweezy came to Seattle as a seventh round pick.
