A look at Seahawks’ draft picks after Graham trade, Harvin’s release

Seahawks general manager John Schneider drew a collective chuckle from reporters Tuesday when he was asked for his thoughts on the Jets releasing receiver Percy Harvin and said: “Well, I was really hoping that they’d keep him.”

The reason, of course, was that had Harvin remained on the Jets’ roster through March 19, Seattle would have received a fourth-round pick to complete the midseason trade that sent him to New York. Instead, it’s a sixth-rounder.

Seattle’s total number of draft picks and the exact order in which they fall won’t be finalized until compensatory selections are announced later this month. Seattle will likely be awarded at least three and possibly four of those. For now, though, the Seahawks have seven selections. That includes no pick in the first round, two in the fourth and one in every other round.

The Seahawks sent their first-round pick to New Orleans in the Jimmy Graham trade and got an additional fourth-rounder back from the Saints. Seattle traded its original sixth-round pick to Indianapolis last summer for cornerback Marcus Burley then recouped a sixth-rounder from the Jets.

Seattle’s own picks will be toward the end of each round as the Seahawks are 31st in the draft order. The fourth from the Saints and the sixth from the Jets will be in the top half of those rounds. But again, where exactly every pick falls will be impacted by the compensatory selections.

Here’s a round-by-round look at the Seahawks’ draft picks, not counting the three or four compensatory selections they will eventually be awarded.

Round 1: no pick (traded to Saints)
Round 2: own pick
Round 3: own pick
Round 4: Saints’ pick, own pick
Round 5: own pick
Round 6: Jets’ pick (traded own pick to Colts)
Round 7: own pick
