It was an active day two at the 2019 NFL Draft for the Seattle Seahawks. They started by trading down from pick #37 to 47, where they would select Utah free safety Marquise Blair. With Earl Thomas gone, Blair figures to be in the running to replace him, and he will have a lot to live up too. He certainly hits like a Legion of Boom member, though!

Seattle then traded up from 77th overall to 64th, closing out round two by drafting Ole Miss wide receiver and noted physical freak D.K. Metcalf. Unfortunately, while Seattle gets a WR early to help boost depth, it might be because Doug Baldwin’s career is in jeopardy. Oh yeah, and this happened.

Closing out the night, Seattle once again traded up, going from 92nd overall to 88th thanks to swapping spots with the Minnesota Vikings. They dipped back into the Utah Utes’ pool by choosing linebacker Cody Barton, who’s probably a reach at that spot, but Seattle also needs some LB help given depth is not exactly plentiful there.

Thanks to the trades with the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, and Minnesota Vikings, Seattle’s Day 3 draft pick haul is a bit different. They now have a sixth-rounder from Minnesota, and one less fourth-rounder after dealing one of them to the Patriots.
