The biggest Round 1 names and potential UDFA gems are in this top-30 list.

The 2023 NFL Draft is just hours away, and the Seattle Seahawks have the luxury of five picks through the end of Round 3, and 10 picks in total. We can expect the Seahawks to trade in some capacity and most likely end up with more picks than they started the draft with.

In the weeks leading up to the draft, every team gets up to 30 formal in-person meetings with college prospects, who are brought into the team facility for interviews and a physical. The term “top-30 visit” doesn’t mean they are the top-30 prospects in the sport or they’re top-30 prospects for a specific team.

This does not mean the Seahawks will take all of these players (obviously), but usually that’s a hint that we’ll see at least one of these players taken either in the draft or as a UDFA. Last year, the Seahawks had Boye Mafe, Dareke Young, and Joshua Onujiogu all brought in as top-30 visits. Seattle drafted Mafe and Young, then signed Onujiogu as a UDFA.

Here’s the confirmed list of Seahawks top-30 visits, with the previously unreported addition of Iowa EDGE Lukas Van Ness added to the board.
