It’s Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft and teams across the league are looking to identify those diamonds in the rough who can defy the odds of being a late round pick and contribute. For fans of the Seattle Seahawks, it’s been a very different draft than in years past, with the team holding just three picks entering the draft and having made just a pair of selections through the first 200 picks.

Pete Carroll and John Schneider used those two picks to add wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge out of Western Michigan in the second round, and cornerback Tre Brown from Oklahoma in the fourth round.

While waiting to make a selection with the 217th overall pick the Seahawks decided to trade up and have selected tackle Stone Forsythe of Florida.

The Seahawks had been slated to hold one additional selection over the remainder of the draft, pick 250 overall, but apparently that pick was sent to the Chicago Bears as part of the trade that bring Forsythe to Seattle.
