Seahawks awarded two more seventh-round choices

The Seahawks don’t currently hold a pick during the first day of the draft after trading their first-round pick as part of the package to acquire Percy Harvin from Minnesota.

The Seahawks will finish with a flourish, though, after being awarded two more seventh-round choices as compensation for suffering a net loss in free agency.

The NFL awarded 32 compensatory choices on Monday, spreading them among 16 teams. The Seahawks were given two seventh-round choices in part for the free-agent departures of quarterback Charlie Whitehurst and safety Atari Bigby, both of whom went to San Diego.

The Seahawks now hold 10 choices in the upcoming draft, four of them in the final round of the draft.

Here is the breakdown of Seahawks draft choices and the selection order:

Second round (one): No. 56 overall

Third round (one): No. 87 overall

Fourth round (one): No. 123 overall

Fifth round (two): No. 138 overall, No. 158 overall

Sixth round (one): No. 194 overall

Seventh round (four): The exact breakdown remains uncertain as Seattle already traded one seventh-round pick (either No. 214, No. 220 or No. 231) to Minnesota for Harvin. It still holds two of those choices and was also awarded No. 241 and No. 242.
