2:49 p.m. Not so fast: The Seahawks trade back into the the seventh round, using a sixth-rounder next year, to draft Hawaii wide receiver John Ursua. That makes it an 11-player draft class.
1:48 p.m. Merry Christmas! The final pick is in: Florida State defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas, who —really — was born on the Fourth of July. Barring any more trades, that does it for the Seahawks.
1:33 p.m. After a lengthy break between picks, the Seahawks’ penultimate pick is in: At No. 204, they go with Miami running back Travis Homer. He rushed for 1,995 yards and 12 touchdowns during his Miami career, averaging 6.0 yards per carry. Seattle is five picks away from its final selection of the draft, barring any late trades.
12:40 p.m. The ‘stache is headed to Jacksonville: the Jaguars spend the 178th pick on Washington State quarterback and folk hero Gardner Minshew, the second Cougar drafted and first since Andre Dillard went 22nd overall. (Stache-sonville — eh? eh?) Meanwhile, Huskies QB Jake Browning is still on the board.
12:27 p.m. There’s No. 7: cornerback Jordan Miller goes to the Falcons at 172, joining teammate Kaleb McGary in Atlanta. That’s seven Huskies taken this year (so far), the most since 1998; six defensive backs in the last three years; seven in the last five, of which six have gone in the first two rounds.
10:59 a.m. Ben Burr-Kirven is staying in Seattle. The Seahawks take the Huskies linebacker and Pac-12’s leading tackler with the 142nd overall pick.
10:42 a.m. The fifth Husky off the board — and first today — is Greg Gaines to the Los Angeles Rams with the 134th overall pick. Gaines was thought to be an option for the Seahawks in the fourth or fifth round. He instead joins UW teammate Taylor Rapp, who was drafted 61st, in Los Angeles.
10:34 a.m. The Seahawks continue to check off their needs, grabbing a cornerback with the 132nd pick, Oregon’s Ugo Amadi, who could slot in at nickelback. Seattle will be back on the clock at No. 142 in about 20 minutes.
10:03 a.m. After trading down, the Seahawks go with another wide receiver with the 120th pick: Gary Jennings out of West Virginia. But unlike the big-play potential of D.K. Metcalf, Jennings was primarily a slot receiver for the Mountaineers.Jennings and Metcalf were the top two-rated SPARQ receivers in the draft.
Four picks later, Seattle adds a big interior offensive lineman in Wake Forest guard Phil Haynes.
9:40 a.m. Hit the snooze button: the Seahawks have traded back again. They were set to be on the clock at No. 114 but moved back six slots and acquired an addition sixth-rounder (No. 204) from the Minnesota Vikings.
9:34 a.m. Hmmmmmmmm…
9:05 a.m. The final day is here, with the Arizona Cardinals kicking us off at pick 103. The Seahawks expect to be on the clock first at No. 114 around 10 a.m. Some local names to look out for today: Huskies Myles Gaskin, Jake Browning, Greg Gaines, Ben Burr-Kirven, JoJo McIntosh and Jordan Miller; and Cougars James Williams and Gardner Minshew.
7:48 p.m. One more trade, and that does it: Seattle moves up four spots to take linebacker Cody Barton, out of Utah, with the 88th overall pick. That should do it for Seattle tonight. See an updated tally of picks above, but needless to say, Saturday should be busy. Things get under way bright and early — 9 a.m.
7:04 p.m. If the rumors are true, the Seahawks will need even more help at receiver than previously thought. Just reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter: Doug Baldwin may have played his last snap of football “due to the cumulative effect of multiple injuries.”
6:32 p.m. A trade … UP?! Your eyes do not deceive you: The Seahawks trade back into the second round, acquiring the 64th overall pick from the Patriots and use it to take physical Ole Miss receiver D.K. Metcalf. In exchange, Seattle sends the No. 77 and No. 118 picks to New England.
6:21 p.m. There goes Taylor Rapp, the fourth Husky taken in the first two rounds, to the Los Angeles Rams with the 61st overall pick. Expect that should do it for Huskies on Day 2. The Seahawks expect to be on the clock next at 7:10 p.m., with pick No. 77.
At the same time, the Cardinals settle the situation they sent in motion Thursday by drafting Kyler Murray first overall. QB Josh Rosen is headed to the Miami Dolphins along with a fifth-rounder in exchange for the 62nd pick.
5:43 p.m. The third Husky taken in this year’s draft? Tight end Drew Sample, who goes 52nd overall to the Cincinnati Bengals. Meanwhile, Taylor Rapp and others remain on the board.
Adam Jude has more on the pick here.
5:23 p.m. Finally, the pick is in: The Seahawks go defense again after trading down 10 picks, selecting defensive back Marquise Blair out of Utah. They’re up next at No. 77.
4:29 p.m. The Seahawks begin Friday just like Thursday, by trading back again. This time they find a partner in the Carolina Panthers. Seattle gets the 47th and 77th picks in exchange for No. 37, which Carolina uses on Ole Miss offensive tackle Greg Little. After starting with four picks, the Seahawks now have 10 picks this year and 12 the next. Their ETA for the 47th pick: 5:13 p.m.
4:14 p.m. With the first pick of the second round, Byron Murphy becomes the second Husky to come off the board. He will join former UW defensive back Budda Baker in Arizona. The Seahawks, at No. 37, are four picks away.
Adam Jude has more on the pick here.
3:41 p.m. The start of the draft’s second day is almost here. The Seahawks hold the 37th and 92nd picks, but with an impressive collection of picks on Day 3 and in 2020, those might not be the only picks Seattle makes tonight. Bob Condotta takes a look at the history of eight remaining picks Seattle holds and also how first-rounder L.J. Collier fits in following the trade of Frank Clark.
UW cornerback Byron Murphy is thought to be an option for the Cardinals with the first pick of the second round. After only Kaleb McGary went off the board Thursday, expect a couple Huskies’ names to be called tonight.
8:54 p.m. With the Patriots’ selection of Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry, the first day of the NFL draft is a wrap. The Seahawks added a second-rounder, two fourth-rounders and two fifth-rounders, while still making a selection at No. 29. See an update list of picks above. Back at it tomorrow, 4 p.m. sharp.
8:48 p.m. Once again, immediately after the Seahawks pick, another team trades up to take a local offensive lineman. This time, it’s UW’s Kaleb McGary, going 31st overall to the Atlanta Falcons, who traded up with the Rams to take him.
Adam Jude, who was in the room, has more here.
8:42 p.m. The pick is in! After trading down from 21, the Seahawks are rewarded for the wait with back-to-back selections. With the first, they take defensive end L.J. Collier at No. 29 (acquired in the Frank Clark trade). And they trade the 30th pick to the New York Giants, acquiring an additional fourth and fifth rounder.
Bob Condotta has more on the pick and the trade here.
7:45 p.m. Immediately after the Seahawks’ trade at No. 21, the Philadelphia Eagles trade up to use the 22nd pick on Washington State’s Andre Dillard, the Cougars’ highest NFL draft selection since Marcus Trufant (11th, 2003).
The Spokesman-Review’s Theo Lawson has more here.
7:32 p.m. Of course: The Seahawks move back, and John Schneider finds a willing partner in his former team, the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay gets the No. 21 pick. Seattle gets the No. 30 pick and two fourth-rounders (Nos. 114 and 118). That means the Seahawks haven’t used their original first-round pick since taking James Carpenter in 2011. The Packers take safety Darnell Savage with the pick.
Bob Condotta has more on the trade here.
7:15 p.m. With four picks until the Seahawks’ selection, defensive linemen are coming off the board in droves. What was expected to be a strong class in the trenches has resulted in nine of the first 17 picks being defensive linemen. And one of the few left on the board is Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat, who was projected to Seattle in multiple mock drafts.
6:28 p.m. TRADE! The first of the night sends the No. 10 pick from Denver to Pittsburgh for the No. 20 and 52 picks and a 2020 third-rounder. The Steelers use the pick on Michigan linebacker Devin Bush. Wild guess: that won’t be the last trade tonight. With the next pick, the Cincinnati Bengals take Alabama’s Jonah Williams, the first offensive tackle off the board (beating WSU’s Andre Dillard) and, as our Adam Jude notes, Jake Browning’s high-school teammate. Browning is a likely Day 3 pick.
6:06 p.m. UPDATE: They’re jamming out to Bob Marley in the Seahawks war room.
5:55 p.m. Despite drafting QB Kyler Murray No. 1 overall, the Cardinals don’t yet have a plan to trade the QB they spent their first-round pick on last year, Josh Rosen, according to The Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers.
5:21 p.m. The pick is in, and we are under way as the skies open up above Nashville. With the No. 1 overall pick, the Arizona Cardinals select quarterback Kyler Murray, out of the University of Oklahoma. With the No. 2 pick, the San Francisco 49ers go with Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa, joining brother Joey in the NFL. Welcome Mr. Murray and Mr. Bosa to the NFC West. Current Seahawks pick ETA: 7:23 p.m.
It’s the Seahawks’ 10th draft under Pete Carroll and John Schneider. From the best classes to the biggest busts, Bob Condotta reviews the past decade of drafting.
The first round officially kicks off at 5 p.m. with the Arizona Cardinals on the clock. We may actually witness a pick on Thursday from the Seahawks, with them entering the draft holding two first-round selections (Nos. 21 and 29) after trading Frank Clark earlier this week.
What they do with either first-rounder is anybody’s guess. It’s possible they use one to replace Clark in what is considered to be a strong defensive-line class. In his post-Clark mock draft, Bob Condotta is projecting a defensive end and a receiver. Here’s the latest roundup of who everybody else is mocking to the Seahawks. A visit to Seahawks headquarters can hint at possible targets. Here’s who’s come through, according to our latest tally.
On the Husky side, it’s possible Washington has four defensive backs drafted, which would be a school record. Quarterback Jake Browning has boosted his draft stock by improving his arm strength. Jon Wilner rounds up and ranks the Pac-12’s top prospects — with a Cougar at No. 1.
