We’re just a few days away now from the NFL Draft, which begins with the first round on Thursday. Rounds two and three will be held on Friday and then rounds 4-7 on Saturday.

Barring a trade, Seattle won’t have a first round pick, having dealt it to New Orleans as part of the deal that netted tight end Jimmy Graham.

But Seattle will have 11 picks the rest of the way, and while most mock drafts concentrate on the first round, some dare to dip into the second and beyond.

So here’s a look at some of those mocks and which players they have Seattle taking. Comments included are those of the site making the pick. If there are no comments then there was no comment made.

Seahawks 2015 Draft

While there are a lot of different player picked for Seattle, there is a little bit of agreement at the top, with many predicting Seattle to go with an offensive linemen early and several picking a center such as Oregon’s Hroniss Grasu or Hobart’s Ali Marpet.

There’s also one pick of a Husky headed to the Seahawks — but probably not one that most would suspect.

All of these are also drafts that have been published or updated in the last week or so. Not all did all seven rounds, but for each we’ve pulled out the picks that were made for the Seahawks.

We lead off with NFL.com’s seven-round mock draft which also is a handy reference which for which overall selections Seattle has in the draft.


(Pick No.) 63. Seattle Seahawks: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon
Trading for TE Jimmy Graham was a no-brainer, but giving up C Max Unger wasn’t easy. It would only make sense that another Duck would waddle in Unger’s webbed-footsteps.

95. Seattle Seahawks: Tre McBride, WR, Williams & Mary
Even though TE Jimmy Graham will be the heart of the offense, defenses know that, too — McBride and Paul Richardson look to free up space over the middle for Graham to operate.

112. Seattle Seahawks: Jarvis Harrison, G, Texas A&M

130. Seattle Seahawks: Leterrius Walton, DT, Central Michigan

134. Seattle Seahawks: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford

167. Seattle Seahawks: Lorenzo Doss, CB, Tulane

170. Seattle Seahawks: Chad Hamilton, G/C, Coastal Carolina

181. Seattle Seahawks: Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama

209. Seattle Seahawks: Martrell Spaight, LB, Arkansas

214. Seattle Seahawks: Andrew Donnal, OT, Iowa

248. Seattle Seahawks: DeShawn Williams, DT, Clemson


Second round: Ali Marpet, OL, Hobart: Marpet has been a hot prospect throughout the offseason process and could find himself going in the second round. Twelve wide receivers are already off the board, and none of the corners fit Seattle’s mold. Turning to the offensive line, Marpet has the highest grade of any player remaining.


Second round: Sammie Coats, WR, Auburn: A player with the size and home run speed of Coates will give Russell Wilson and the Seahawks a true deep threat.


Second round: Ali Marpet, G, Hobart: After starting all four years at left tackle at the Division 3 level, Marpet turned heads with the versatility, athleticism and competitiveness he showed at the Senior Bowl and combine.


Second round: Ali Marpet, C/OT/G, Hobart: The Seahawks could use some help on the offensive line to give Russell Wilson more time in the pocket. The rising Ali Marpet is a great fit for the blocking scheme, and he can pretty much play anywhere up front.

Third round: Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson: The Seahawks were really missing Brandon Mebane. They need some help at defensive tackle, even once Mebane returns from his hamstring injury next year.

Fourth Round (pick 112): Mitch Morse, C/G, Missouri: The Seahawks traded away their starting center to Seattle and managed to acquire this pick in the process. It makes sense that they’d find a replacement for Max Unger here. They could use Ali Marpet at center (selected in the second round of my mock), and if so, Mitch Morse can play guard.
Fourth round (pick 130):  Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas: The Seahawks lost their former Super Bowl MVP in free agency to the Raiders. Depth will be needed at this position.
Fourth round (pick 134): Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss: The Seahawks lost a couple members of their secondary this offseason, so they could look to replenish depth in the middle rounds.

Fifth round (pick 167): Seattle Seahawks: Justin Cox, CB, Mississippi State: Byron Maxwell signed with the Eagles, while Tharold Simon was atrocious in the Super Bowl when he had to replace Jeremy Lane.
Fifth round (pick 170:) Seattle Seahawks: Chris Conley, WR, Georgia:  The Seahawks traded for Jimmy Graham, but they could still stand to add another play-maker, as their receiving corps doesn’t have much talent.
Sixth round (pick 181): Seattle Seahawks: Nick Boyle, TE, Delaware:  The Seahawks traded for Jimmy Graham, but they also lost Zach Miller this offseason, so perhaps they’ll add depth at tight end.
Sixth round (pick 209):  Seattle Seahawks: Kyle Emanuel, DE/OLB, North Dakota State: The Seahawks were able to re-sign Cliff Avril to a 4-year deal back in December, but they could still add an edge rusher for the future.


63. Seattle—DE Preston Smith, Mississippi State

95. Seattle—WR Tyler Lockett, Kansas State

112. Seattle—T Ty Sambrailo, Colorado State

130. Seattle—RB David Johnson, Northern Iowa

134. Seattle—DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Southern Miss

167. Seattle—FS Detrick Bonner, Virginia Tech

170. Seattle—OL Mitch Morse, Missouri

181. Seattle—CB Garry Peters, Clemson

209. Seattle—WR Darren Waller, Georgia Tech

214. Seattle—C Chad Hamilton, Coastal Carolina

248. Seattle—LB John Timu, Washington


Second round, Hroniss Grasu, C Oregon: Out goes ex-Oregon OL Max Unger, in comes Oregon OL Hroniss Grasu, both for a 2nd Rd pick. A four year starter with 52 starts under his belt, Grasu is a smart, savy prospect who can physically complement Seattle’s zone-blocking scheme. At Oregon’s pro day, Grasu ran a 5.01 40, a short shuttle in 4.20 and the three cone drill at 7.84 sec, while all at almost 300lbs.


C Hroniss Grasu, Oregon:  The Seahawks replace Max Unger, who they sent to New Orleans in the Graham trade.


63: Stephone Anthony (LB Clemson): Middle linebacker might not be a hole for the Seahawks right now but Bobby Wagner is still making less than a million dollars and may price himself out of Seattle after next season. Seattle could get proactive and take a ‘backer in this year’s draft like Stephone Anthony, who can also play outside.

95: Damian Swann (CB Georgia): Damian Swann is another underrated prospect I love. A ballhawk (four INTs, four forced fumbles last year) who recently ran a 4.5 flat at the combine.

112: Reese Dismukes (Center Auburn): With Max Unger gone the Seahawks will be happy to grab one of the draft’s few legitimate center prospects. Reese Dismukes is a power-blocking pivot who will help improve their run game
130: Obum Gwachum (DE Oregon State): It’s hard to find a better 1-2 pass rushing duo in the league than what Seattle has in  Michael Bennett on the strongside and Cliff Avril on the weakside. However, they’ll feel the loss of number three defensive end O’Brien Schofield who left via free agency. Local Pac-West product Obum Gwachum is a raw athlete who needs some muscle and some coaching, but has a huge upside.
134: Hayes Pullard (OLB USC): Hayes Pullard is one of my favorite sleepers in this year’s draft. He’s started all four years of his career at USC with experience at MIKE and WILL. Pullard stood out at the Senior Bowl and despite lacking elite measureables has more than enough to be a starting player in the league. Very similar to USC’s Devon Kennard who ended up starting for the Giants last year as a 5th round pick.
167: Robert Myers (Guard Tennessee State): He fits the prototype perfectly; 6’5″, 325, 33 3/4″. Myers also has some quickness to him, but a rough showing at the Senior Bowl hurt his stock. High upside project.
170: Shaq Riddick (DE West Virginia): Riddick didn’t live up to the hype after 19 tackles for loss at FCS Gardner-Webb in 2013. However, he looks the part (6’6″ 345) and has all the physical tools you look for. He recently impressed at WVU’s pro-day.
181: Sean Mannion (QB Oregon State): Local kid could develop into Russell Wilson’s backup. Mannion regressed precipitously in 2014 after a breakout junior year, also struggled at the Senior Bowl. Still big but if this year’s QB class wasn’t so weak he wouldn’t even be drafted.
209: Marcus Rush (DE Michigan State): Teams like Michigan State players because the NFL scheme they run at East Lansing. Marcus Rush is an average athlete at best but is a hustle player who sets the edge and gives 100% on every play.
214: Curtis Grant (OLB Ohio State): Stout and physical base 4-3 WILL who fits Seattle’s scheme nicely. Curtis Grant also has the traits to be a solid fourth down player.
248:Devante Davis (WR UNLV): Had a huge season in 2013 with 87/1,290/14. Dropped as a senior with only 34/599/4. Big body at 6’3″ 220, some have mentioned he might even be better as a tight end.
