Seahawks' lose this year's 5th-round pick
On the day the trade was announced, the Seahawks did not specify the rounds of draft choices involved.
The Seahawks gave up their fourth-round pick in 2011, and Buffalo will also receive Seattle's fifth-round pick this year to complete the deal. It was a conditional choice that elevated from a sixth-round selection to a fifth-round selection based upon playing time, according to the Buffalo Bills' official Web site.
This season Lynch became the first Seahawk since 2005 to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season.
The Seahawks will receive a late-round draft pick in 2012 from Oakland as part of the trade for linebacker Aaron Curry. It's believed that choice will be a seventh-round selection.
