John Schneider explains why Seahawks traded down on Day 3 of the draft

By Tim Weaver

The Seattle Seahawks only made one trade during the 2022 NFL draft – moving down from one of their spots in the fifth round to add another seventh-round selection later on.

Yesterday, general manager John Schneider was a guest on ESPN 710 AM in Seattle and explained why the team decided to make that trade down. Apparently they didn’t want to have to choose between taking Rutgers WR Bo Melton or Lenoir-Rhyne receiver Dareke Young in the seventh round.

“We did the one where we traded back and were able to pick up that extra seventh, which was huge for us because we really had those two receivers staring at us down there that our staff really wanted to work with and that our scouts were obviously very high on. So to get it where we didn’t have to pick between one of the two and be able to grab both of them was a really big deal for us. I think you guys are gonna be really impressed with these two young men.”

Melton was a very productive slot receiver in college and should project as the team’s top kick returner heading into 2022. He’s considered one of the top steals in this draft class. Meanwhile, Young has the same athletic profile as D.K. Metcalf but his dual-threat game more resembles Deebo Samuel’s.
