With only four selections going into the 2019 NFL Draft and looking at the prospect of paying defensive end Frank Clark upwards of $20 million per year, the Seattle Seahawks made a move this week. It's a move that increases the number of picks in 2019 to five, the add a second round pick in 2020, and they save about $17 million against the salary cap by making the move.

But it creates a hole that Seattle will need to fill either through the draft or free agency. Brandan Schulze and Clinton Bonner talk about the trade, how it impacts the draft, and which players in free agency that Seattle could get to fill behind Clark.

Having two draft picks at the end of the first round gives them options now to either stay put with the 21st pick overall or move back and compile picks in the second and third rounds where there is a lot of depth to help fill positions of need for Seattle.
