Because of the fifth-year option on first-round contracts, Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider believes the No. 32 spot has added attraction.

Schneider told NFL Media's Alex Flanagan that he has talked to a few teams and it's "fairly realistic" he will trade down Thursday night.

If the Texans draft Jadeveon Clowney at the top of the draft, they will be in the market for a quarterback at No. 33 overall. That would leave quarterback-needy teams such as the Raiders, Jaguars, Browns and Vikings as potential trade partners for the Seahawks.

Armed with just six picks this year, Schneider says his primary goal is to add depth at all positions. He's one of the few general managers with the luxury of going the "best player available" route throughout the draft.
