The 2019 NFL Draft is underway, and to no one’s surprise, the Seattle Seahawks traded out of their first draft pick at 21 in order to add two fourth round picks to the team’s draft arsenal. In trading back from 21, the Hawks picked up pick 30, which they then traded to the New York Giants.

In moving back from pick 30 to pick 37, the Seahawks also added picks 132 and 142. Pick 132 will be close to the end of the fourth round, while pick 142 is very early in the fifth round. Thus, the Seahawks moved back from 21 to 37, by way of trades with the Giants and the Green Bay Packers, and in doing so added four additional picks on Day 3 of the draft.

If one wishes to evaluate this trade on the Jimmy Johnson trade chart, the Seahawks gave up pick 30 (620 points), while picking up pick 37 (530 points), pick 132 (40 points) and pick 142 (35 points). Thus, the Seahawks gave up 620 points of value and received 605 points of value in return.

This now leaves the Seahawks holding two picks on Friday and six picks on Saturday, which should be plenty of ammunition for John Schneider to add the players on the team’s board and address some of the holes facing the team.
