This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

SEATTLE – After several months of preparation and speculation, the NFL Draft is upon us.

The Seattle Seahawks have nine picks, including No. 26 overall, and made a few small moves Thursday. In the days leading up to the draft, however, there was much speculation that general manager John Schneider would follow past precedent and try to get more picks by trading out of the first round.

Stay on this page all evening for live updates and commentary, and watch the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX, at 4, 5 10 and 11 for analysis from Aaron Levine, Michelle Ludtka and Ian Furness.

CHICAGO – Get used to Jared Goff, Seattle Seahawks fans.

As expected, the Los Angeles Rams made Goff the top pick in the NFL Draft on Thursday night.

The Seahawks’ NFC West rivals traded a boatload of draft picks to get the first pick as they prepare to move Los Angeles.

Goff is the fifth Cal quarterback to be selected in the first round.

Goff becomes the second straight QB to go No. 1 overall and the 22nd in the modern era of the draft since 1967. He also is the first selection by the Rams since they moved to Los Angeles in the offseason.

The 6-foot-4 Goff started every game during his three seasons at California and set school records with 977 completions, 12,220 yards passing and 96 touchdown passes. He passed for 4,719 yards and 43 touchdowns in his last year with the Bears.

With the third pick, the Chargers make a somewhat surprising pick: Ohio State defensive tackle Joey Bosa.

There’s a mini-controversy erupting on social media right now after Laremy Tunsil’s verified Twitter account tweeted out a photo of what appears to be Tunsil smoking something out of a gas mask.

SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks made a trade all right, but it wasn’t as dramatic as some thought it would be.

Seattle traded its first-round pick, No. 26 overall, to the Denver Broncos while the Seahawks were on the clock.

In return, the Hawks got the Broncos’ first-round pick – No. 31 overall – as well as a third-rounder, the 94th pick overall.

At the time of the trade, big names including UCLA linebacker Myles Jack and Mississippi defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche were still on the board.

SEATTLE – And in the end, the Seahawks went with an offensive tackle after all.

The Seahawks picked Texas A&M tackle Germain Ifedi with the No. 31 overall pick, making a move to shore up an offensive line that was one of the worst in the NFL for much of last year.

The Seahawks traded down earlier in the first round, swapping their No. 26 pick to Denver for No. 31 and a third-rounder.

Ifedi has a monstrous frame, standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 324 pounds with 36-inch-long arms.

He played guard in 2013, then moved to right tackle in 2014 and 2015.

The draft continues Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. with rounds 2 and 3. The Seahawks have one pick in the second round (No. 56 overall) and three in the third (Nos. 90, 94 and 97 overall).
