The moment fans of the Seattle Seahawks have been waiting for finally arrived Thursday, with the start of the 2023 NFL Draft and the first selections being made. At long last the Hawks came on the clock, and all attention turned to Pete Carroll and John Schneider to see who they would add to the Seattle roster.
The Seahawks added a pair of impact players in Devon Witherspoon and Jaxon Smith-Njigba Thursday, before selecting Derick Hall and Zach Charbonnet in the second round on Friday.
Then, when they came on the clock at No. 83 in the third round, they traded down with the Denver Broncos.
