NFL draft order set; Seahawks have seven picks
By Brady Henderson
There wasn’t much drama when the NFL released the complete order of the 2014 draft. At least there wasn’t for the Seahawks, whose place in line has for the most part been set since they won the Super Bowl in February.
Seattle has seven draft picks, six of which are 32nd in their respective round. The Seahawks have an additional fifth-round pick, which they acquired from Oakland in the Matt Flynn trade. It’s the sixth pick of the fifth round, where the Seahawks have made hay in recent years, unearthing future Pro Bowlers Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.
The Seahawks don’t have a third-round selection, having included it in the package of picks they sent to Minnesota for Percy Harvin. And they don’t have any compensatory selections, which are given to teams who experienced net losses in free agency the year before.
The complete list of Seahawks picks:
• Round 1, 32 overall
• Round 2, 64 overall
• Round 4, 132 overall
• Round 5, 146 overall (Matt Flynn trade)
• Round 5, 172 overall
• Round 6, 208 overall
• Round 7, 247 overall
