RENTON — The Seahawks continued to add to their offensive line Saturday in the NFL draft by taking center Joey Hunt of TCU in the sixth round at pick No. 215 overall.
It’s the second consecutive year Seattle has taken three offensive linemen in the draft, as the Seahawks attempt to shore up what has been a problem area in recent seasons.
The 6-foot-1, 299-pounder also played guard and was a three-year starter at TCU.
