Seahawks join Rams in first-round retreat
By Mike Sando
RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks wanted to trade back from the 12th overall spot in the 2012 NFL draft.
General manager John Schneider indicated as much last week.
That's what happened Thursday when Seattle sent the 12th pick to Philadelphia for the 15th, 114th and 172nd overall choices.
That trade left the NFC West with the 13th (Arizona), 14th (St. Louis) and 15th overall choices.
The Rams previously traded down from sixth to 14th with Dallas. Looks like the NFC West is valuing quantity over quality in this draft.
Seattle was without a fifth-round pick. The team now has two fourth-rounders and two sixth-rounders.
