In less than an hour, the first round of the NFL's 2013 draft will get underway.  Tonight's action won't be as exciting for Seahawks fans, since the team traded its first round pick for all-around offensive stud Percy Harvin, but if there's anything we've learned from Schneider and Carroll's previous three drafts it's that nothing should be taken for granted.  The odds of Seattle trading back up into the first round are pretty slim, but they have ten draft picks this year and not nearly enough open roster spots to go around.  If someone they covet drops into the lower first round, don't be surprised if they make a deal to go get him. I won't be near a computer for the opening part of the draft, but once I return home I'll be keeping an eye on the festivities and post updates if anything Seahawks-relevant occurs.  If nothing else, it'll be interesting to see what choices the rest of the NFC West will make this year.  Will the Rams finally pick up a competent safety?  Will the 49ers try to snag an understudy for the finally aging Justin Smith?  Will the Cardinals pick an offensive lineman to protect their middling QBs, or will they pick a QB to stand behind their middling o-line?
