On Friday night, the NFL draft rolled on with the second and third rounds.

While the major storyline from Friday was trade that sent Josh Rosen to the Miami Dolphins, there was another major development as well.

According to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin's career could be over.

"At the age of 30, Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin might be unable to play again due to the cumulative effect of multiple injuries, per sources," Schefter reported.

"There is a real chance that Baldwin, one of the Seahawks’ best and most popular players, has played his last NFL down, a source said Friday."

Baldwin went undrafted out of Stanford, but became Russell Wilson's favorite target over the past five years.

However, after suffering from numerous injuries over the past two seasons, it looks like his career could be at its end.

The Seahawks traded back into the second round on Friday night to select wide receiver DK Metcalf. Although he was expected to go in the first round, Metcalf fell to the final pick of the second round.

He looks to make an immediate impact for Seattle if Baldwin steps away from the game.

Stay tuned.
