Seattle Seahawks fans cheer during the third day of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30, 2022, in Las Vegas.

The Seattle Seahawks added nine players in the NFL draft that wrapped up over the weekend. But none was a quarterback to replace Russell Wilson, who was traded to the Denver Broncos in the offseason. Former KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel talked with Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick about the Seahawks' choices.
