2018 NFL Draft: Twitter reacts to Seahawks trading down to 27th pick

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

To the surprise of no one, the Seattle Seahawks traded out of the 18th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. They’ve moved nine spots down to #27, receiving a third-rounder (pick #76) and sixth-rounder (pick #186) from the Green Bay Packers, who’d traded down from #14 to #27, acquiring the New Orleans Saints’ 2019 first-rounder in the process. Green Bay selected Louisville DB Jaire Alexander with their top choice, as they badly need help in the secondary.

Seattle didn’t have a third-rounder entering the draft, and we know John Schneider loves to trade down. On the plus side, this assures us that the Seahawks will be picking someone on Friday, and day 2 is historically where they’ve chosen some of their best players.
