The Seattle Seahawks General Manager John Schneider has notably traded draft picks down to acquire more of them. Yesterday, Seattle stayed put in holdinng on to their #27 slot to select LB Jordyn Brooks and today he, uncharacteristically, traded up from choice #59 to get to #48 in the 2nd round of the 202 NFL Draft.

With the choice, Seattle drafted University of Tennessee Defensive End Darrell Taylor.
