Seattle give up three draft picks to land impact player on offence.
The Seattle Seahawks have given up this year’s first and seventh round draft pick, as well as next year’s third, in order to land Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin.
The 24 year-old has wanted to leave Minnesota all season, and will become part of an already scary offence led by second year Quarterback Russell Wilson.
Percy Harvin will come in and become the number one target for Wilson next year, looking to stretch a defence deep to open up shallow passing lanes.
The other reason why this is a good trade for Seattle is that Wilson is just as good with his feet than with his arm. If Harvin can make a defence drop further back, then there will be huge areas of space for Wilson to run into, not to mention All-Pro running back Marshawn Lynch.
This trade works on so many levels for Seattle as they attempt to knock San Francisco off the top of the NFC West.
The one problem with the trade is the high asking price. Three picks is a little excessive for the receiver, who has off-field issues and trouble with recurring migraines.
A first and fifth round pick this year would have been a better deal, and Minnesota will be very happy with their end of the deal, as they now have the 23rd and 25th pick in this years NFL Draft.
