2011 NFL Draft Results: Lions Trade For Seahawks Second Round Pick

The Seattle Seahawks were unable to trade down in the first round, but found more success in the second. By the time the Seahawks name came up at No. 57, they were able to pawn the pick off and trade down, handing the pick over to the Detroit Lions. The Seahawks were without a third round pick and had one shot at making a pick on the second day with pick No. 57 before trading it away to the Lions to move backwards.

The trade was more complicated than just the Seahawks moving back and picking up another pick, it appears, and, apparently, encompasses multiple rounds. Here's what we know, courtesy of Danny O'Neil.

Seattle traded its 2nd-round pick, 5th-round and 7th-rd pick for Detroit's 3rd (75), 4th (107), 5th (No. 154) and 7th (205)

So the Seahawks are back into the second round, but lost their third-round pick. Picking up a fourth-round pick is an added bonus, as well, and should make Seahawks fans happy. With more room to work with, we'll see what Pete Carroll can do here.

Many of the picks we’d seen bandied about and connected to the Seahawks were off the board and the late-second round was less than appetizing. At the quarterback spot, Ryan Mallett was still on the board, but many expect him to continue his slide. With the pick, the Lions took Mikel Leshoure, a running back out of Illinois who had been connected to Seattle at one point.

2011 NFL Draft Results: James Carpenter Selected By Seattle Seahawks

With the 25th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected James Carpenter, an offensive tackle from Alabama. The pick comes out of nowhere, and Carpenter had been on anyone’s radar, as far as we can tell. He hadn’t been connected to the Seahawks at all in the various mock drafts around, nor did he seem to have a first round grade.

When the prevailing reaction is “who?” it’s not a good sign. According to ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Carpenter had a late second round grade and may be a project with upside. To be clear, it’s a reach, but he does fill a need along the offensive line. But with so many players with mid- to late-first round grades still around, one has to wonder what the Seahawks were thinking here.

We’ll be back with more on the pick as it becomes available and as soon as we figure out more about Carpenter.

The 2011 NFL Draft will be broadcast online for free in two different places: On the NFL website and on ESPN Networks. Both streams are free, though there are terms for the ESPN broadcast, and legal. With the incredible amount of coverage going on throughout the 2011 NFL Draft,

To watch the NFL broadcast of the draft, just head over to NFL.com. A direct link to the coverage can be found here. Though it’s unclear if the stream will mirror the NFL Network broadcast, there will be full coverage from Radio City Music Hall in New York.

The ESPN broadcast is a little different and a bit more complicated. The live-stream will not be shown on ESPN3, but will instead be on ESPNNetworks.com.

NFL Draft 2011: First Round Start Time, TV Schedule And Live Coverage

With the 2011 NFL Draft just hours away, it’s time to figure out just how to watch and track the draft. In addition to two network television broadcasts, both on cable, there will be plenty of online coverage and analysis at the click of a button. With a ton of information to process, we’ll be working to parse all the latest news while doling out analysis throughout the first round.

Here is the schedule and TV information for Thursday’s first round.

Start time and schedule: It’s going to be a long night in New York as the draft coverage begins at 5 p.m. PDT. Each team is allotted 10 minutes to make their pick, and those 10 minutes will be exhausted if the past is any indication. We’re looking at five hours of coverage on Thursday alone, with two more days of wall-to-wall coverage to come. More on the schedule can be found here.

TV information: The two primary broadcasts can be found on ESPN and NFL Network. You can see the picks come in as they’re announced by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, as well as quick analysis of the players on each broadcast. Watch one or both at the same time to get a fill of draft coverage.

Live coverage: As a supplement to the broadcasts, there’s plenty of online coverage to be found. Here at SB Nation Seattle, we’ll be covering the Seattle Seahawks and the local prospects in the draft, namely Jake Locker during Thursday’s first round.
