The 2023 NFL Draft continues from Kansas City!
On Thursday night the Seattle Seahawks pulled a minor surprise by drafting cornerback Devon Witherspoon at No. 5 overall, then followed that up by selecting former Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba at No. 20, giving them their first Round 1 cornerback since 2006 and first Round 1 receiver since 2001.
Seattle has two second-round picks and a third-round pick on Friday, but after not making any trades on Thursday will that change on Friday? Their notable needs include defensive tackle, EDGE, off-ball linebacker, center, guard, and yes, running back. Of course, there’s always the chance the Seahawks draft one of quarterbacks Will Levis or Hendon Hooker.
Coverage of Rounds 2-3 of the NFL Draft begin at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT on ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network. Anyone watching on ESPN will need to flip to ESPN2 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT because of the NBA Playoffs.
In years past we would make this an all-encompassing thread for Round 2-3, but seeing as we had almost 3,000 comments just for Round 1 and had to use an overflow thread, I’m left with no choice but to make this the Round 2 tracker and then we’ll have the Round 3 tracker up at the conclusion of Round 2.
Don’t forget that Field Gulls’ own John P. Gilbert is on-site in Kansas City covering the draft for us!

Bears trade of 61 and 136 for 56 with the Jaguars is a slightly pricier trade-up than the previous couple deals.— Seth Walder (@SethWalder) April 29, 2023
Early-to-mid 5th-rounders' worth of surplus value for Jacksonville.
