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.

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.
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.
