According to a report, the Seahawks are looking to trade back from the No. 12 slot and take Alabama linebacker Dont’a Hightower with a later pick in the first round.
That wouldn’t qualify as surprising given the Seahawks’ needs at linebacker and the willingness to move back that general manager John Schneider has demonstrated.
The eye-opening portion of the report from DraftInsider.net was the alternative to that plan.
“If they canâ€™t move the pick they are seriously considering Hightowerâ€™s teammate, safety Mark Barron, at that slot and Kam Chancellor would then move to outside linebacker,” the report suggests.
Brock Huard and Mike Salk discuss that possibility in Thursday’s Wrap Up video.
