The Seattle Seahawks did what they do as their first pick approached in the 2019 NFL Draft – they traded back. Not just once, but twice.

As the Seahawks were on the clock at No. 21 during Thursday’s first round, they sent that pick to the Green Bay Packers, getting in return the Packers’ first-round pick at No. 30 overall, plus a pair of fourth-round picks: No. 114 and No. 118.

That No. 30 pick then found its way to the hands of the New York Giants, with Seattle getting a second-rounder (No. 37 overall), a fourth-rounder (No. 132) and a fifth-rounder (No. 142).

By trading down twice from that initial No. 21 spot, the Seahawks pushed their pick total from five to nine in the span of about an hour.

By the way, the Seahawks did make one pick in the first round: defensive end L.J. Collier from TCU.

This is what Seattle’s draft looks like now:

Thursday, April 25

Round 1, Pick 29 (29th overall, acquired from Chiefs): L.J. Collier, defensive end, TCU

Friday, April 26

Round 2, Pick 5 (37th overall, acquired from Giants)
Round 3, Pick 29 (92nd overall, acquired from Chiefs)

Saturday, April 27

Round 4, Pick 12 (114th overall, acquired from Packers)
Round 4, Pick 18 (118th overall, acquired from Packers)
Round 4, Pick 22 (124th overall)
Round 4, Pick 30 (132nd overall, acquired from Giants)
Round 5, Pick 4 (142nd overall, acquired from Giants)
Round 5, Pick 21 (159th overall)
