Harvin trade changes complexion of Seahawks’ draft

The Seahawks could conceivably make it through the 2013 season without one of their 11 draft picks starting a game. That wouldn’t be an indictment on the class as much as it would be a reflection of the strength of the roster and the reality that Seattle’s starting lineup doesn’t have many clear openings.

That’s one way to look at it.

“Still say we had the best first round pick of the draft,” safety Earl Thomas tweeted Thursday night.

The Seahawks consider wide receiver Percy Harvin a part of their 2013 draft class, having included the 25th overall choice in a package of picks they sent to Minnesota to acquire him.

In the video below, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss how taking the Harvin trade into account changes the overall complexion of Seattle’s draft.
