Here's a look at who a few mock drafts have the Seahawks taking with the No. 63 overall pick.

One thing Seattle’s trade for Jimmy Graham did was pour a little bit of water on the anticipation for the NFL Draft in these parts.

Or, at the least, it changed it.

Seattle’s first pick is No. 63 overall, at the bottom of the second round.

The mock draft industry, and the hype it creates, tends to focus on the first round for all the obvious reasons.

It’s a lot harder to find mock drafts that drift much into later rounds.

But I found a few, which I’ll pass along here, and do so in part to give an idea of the kinds of players that figure to be available for the Seahawks there (assuming they keep that pick — there is always a decent chance they won’t).


Charles Gaines, cornerback, Louisville

What they said: Gaines can provide Seattle with a return man and a viable replacement to Legion of Boom members when needed. With starting CB Byron Maxwell possibly leaving via free agency, Gaines’ number could be called sooner than later.

Rashad Greene, WR, Florida State

What they said: Over the last two weeks, GM John Schneider has shored up the D by signing FA NT Ahtyba Rubin, DT D’Anthony Smith, and CB Cary Williams. He addressed some major issues on the other side of the ball by resigning Beast Mode and by trading for TE Jimmy Freaking Graham. However, his work is still far from done as one gigantic issue is still pressing –the abysmal state of the WR corps. Based on the lack of Free Agency movement, the Seahawks are forced to address this need early in the draft. FSU Senior Rashad Greene had a wonderful career for the Seminoles; over his 4 years, he has reeled in a combined 3,830 yards and 29 TDs. But the Combine did him no favors, because at 5’11” 182 lbs, Rashad ran a pedestrian 4.53 40, which will move him inevitably to the slot. He will get another chance to prove his speed at FSU’s Pro Day on March 31st.


Henry Anderson, DE, Stanford

What they said: Actually, this site just listed players but did not add a comment. But here is a link from to some info on Anderson, a player from a school from which the Seahawks have had some obvious draft success.


Mario Edwards, DL Florida State

What they said: The Seahawks could use an interior defensive lineman capable of collapsing the pocket.Edwards recorded 44 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, three sacks, four passes batted and two forced fumbles in 2014. He was disruptive for the Seminoles. The 6-foot-3, 279-pounder has a nice combination of power, speed and athleticism. Edwards played heavier in college, but has the versatility to play end or tackle in the NFL. He also could serve as a five-technique in a 3-4 defense.Edwards played well for Florida State in 2013. The first-year starter totaled 28 tackles with 9.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, an interception and a fumble return for a touchdown – against Clemson. Edwards was tough in the National Championship Game with three tackles for a loss and a sack.


Byron Jones, CB, Conecticut

What they said: Here’s another site that just listed the player without a comment. So here again is an scouting report on Jones as well as this story on his Pro Day performance Tuesday when he ran an unofficial 4.36 40, continuing to stamp himself as one of the fastest players in the draft.
