If this trade goes through, the Seahwaks won't have a pick until the 24th selection in the second round.
Given the state of their franchise, that's OK.
Clearly, Seattle is gearing up to make a legitimate run at a Super Bowl title and, although Russell Wilson led a balanced attack in 2012, the addition of Harvin should have a significantly positive ripple effect on the offense in 2013 and beyond.
Sending a first-round pick, a seventh-round pick and a 2014 third-rounder is relatively steep, but there's nothing wrong with the Seahawks pursuing a uniquely explosive talent like Harvin to immediately improve their offense.
Seattle probably could have landed a promising receiver with the No. 25 overall pick but, in general, receivers take longer to transition to the NFL—Pete Carroll wanted an established, proven weapon.
This from Yahoo! Sports' Doug Farrar moments before the news broke on Twitter:
Harvin does have an injury history, but he should receive a clean bill of health heading into the upcoming campaign.
