“Who says we’re picking at 26?” — John Schneider in 2016 (and 2017?).
With the draft two weeks away, it looks like John Schneider could be getting ready to make some big moves.
On top of the Marshawn Lynch trade that seems destined to happen at any time and the potential Richard Sherman deal, Schneider is rumored to be talking to teams about moving up in the first round — which would be a first for him as Seattle’s general manager.
Reports early Thursday indicated the Seahawks and Raiders would end up working out a trade, assuming Lynch and the Raiders worked out a contract. On Thursday night, Lynch sent out a tweet that seemed to indicate he and the Raiders had come to terms, and it was reported as done Friday until Lynch seemed to set everyone straight.
Once it gets “real” with the Raiders, a deal between Seattle and Oakland would seem to be coming shortly after.
