Despite coming into the draft owning only five picks, the Seattle Seahawks made a number of shrewd trades in the early rounds of the draft as they repeatedly traded back and regained late round draft picks. With six picks on day three, including three in the fourth round, the Seahawks sit in a perfect position to help fill in the number of holes they possess on both sides of the football.
Let’s take a look at when Seattle picks in the NFL Draft on Day 3.

Seattle Seahawks NFL Draft Biggest Needs
While the Seahawks have done a solid job of targeting their biggest needs so far. Picking up help in the form of an edge rusher, safety, and wide receiver, the Seahawks are making a clear point to address their areas of need as opposed to simply taking the best overall player on the board. Expect the Seahawks to continue to replenish the defense, especially after taking another receiver early on day three.
The Seahawks still need help in a number of outside areas, specifically on the offensive line. While they did pick up Phil Haynes in the fourth round, their line is still shaky and could use another young body to help fill in.
On the defensive side of the football, the Seahawks will likely look to defensive backs and defensive linemen with the remainder of their picks. Having done a relatively good job of filling some holes already, the Seahawks might simply take the best available players with their late picks in the hopes that they can strike gold with an elite talent on a cheap deal.
