Friday evening the Seattle Seahawks used their lone selection over the first two days of the draft to address the third wide receiver spot behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, adding D’Wayne Eskridge of Western Michigan in the second round. Back at it again on Saturday, the Hawks front office was scheduled for another light day, holding just two selections over the final four rounds the Seahawks quickly took advantage of a team looking to move up in the fourth round.

So, the Hawks moved back eight spots and in doing so expanded their draft arsenal from three selections to four. Whether they will now stay and pick at 137 or whether they will trade down yet again in order to add yet more picks will be known shortly.
The Seahawks now hold the final non-compensatory pick in the fourth round and the first compensatory pick in the sixth round.
