Seattle Seahawks NFL Draft Picks in 2023


The Seattle Seahawks were one of the biggest surprises of the 2022 NFL season. Geno Smith had a career year after the team traded quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. The Seahawks went 9-8 and reached the playoffs. Now, their attention turns to the 2023 NFL Draft.

Here’s a look at the Seattle Seahawks draft picks for 2023.

List of Seattle Seahawks 2023 NFL Draft Picks

The Seahawks have 10 picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, including the number five overall pick thanks to the trade with the Broncos. The team hopes it can stay competitive in the NFC West with two first-round picks with the 5th and 20th overall selections. Here’s a list of the draft picks for head coach Pete Carroll and the Seahawks.

– 1st Round: 5th overall (from Broncos)

– 1st Round: 20th overall

– 2nd Round: 37th overall (from Broncos)

– 2nd Round: 52nd overall

– 3rd Round: 83rd overall

– 4th Round: 123rd overall

– 5th Round: 151st overall (from Steelers)

– 5th Round: 154th overall

– 6th Round: 198th overall

– 7th Round: 237th overall

The Seahawks have won the Russell Westbrook trade with the Broncos (for now). They made the playoffs and currently sit with five picks in the first three rounds of this year’s draft. More specifically, Seattle has two in the first round, two in the second round, and one in the third.

The team was able to lock up Geno Smith and keep him from hitting free agency to maintain stability at quarterback. Many thought they might target a quarterback in Round 1 if he left for another team.

2023 Seahawks Mock Draft and Team Needs

With four picks in the first two rounds, the Seahawks can make some noise. Current 2023 mock drafts show options that include shoring up the defensive line with Jalen Carter from Georgia or potentially getting a quarterback of the future with Florida’s Anthony Richardson. 

Also, the Seahawks could go after wide receiver Jordan Addison from USC with the No. 20 overall pick to give Geno Smith more weapons. Edge rusher Lukas Van Ness would be another option late in the first round after a solid season at Iowa.

GM John Schneider has some options in the 2023 Seahawks draft after helping the team get back into the playoffs one year after going 7-10. The team got productive seasons out of fourth-round pick Coby Bryant and fifth-round selection Tariq Woolen in 2022.
