Now that we are done with the NFL Combine, it’s time to look some of the latest of the more prominent mock drafts and which players they have headed to Seattle. Recall that Seattle has the No. 31 pick in the first round, and the same in the second round, No. 63 overall. And as you’ll see, there’s no consensus.


(31) Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma:

“His character questions present a roll of the dice, but the Seahawks rarely come up snake eyes (Percy Harvin notwithstanding) in such scenarios and could really use a game-breaking outside threat to help QB Russell Wilson.”


(31) Todd Gurley, RB, Junior, Georgia:

“I’m with Pete Carroll on the Marshawn Lynch retirement speculation. The veteran running back is for sure playing in 2015, but after that, who knows? Seattle is that rare team in position to take Gurley in the first round and give him all the time he needs to rehabilitate from his November 2014 knee injury.”


(31) Owa Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA:

“General manager John Schneider loves two things in prospects—long arms and big hands. Owa Odighizuwa has both (33.75″ arms, 11″ hands) and has shown the speed and production as an edge-rusher to fit in well with the Seahawks’ 4-3 defense. Odighizuwa would ideally play a defensive end role, allowing Michael Bennett to continue being a wild card at end and tackle. When Odighizuwa is in, Bennett is allowed to wreck the offensive line, and it has to focus on Cliff Avril and the former UCLA pass-rusher at the same time. That’s a nightmare for any offensive line.”


(31) *Arik Armstead, DE, Oregon:

“While he played his worst game at the most inopportune time against Ohio State, he flashed against an experienced OL vs. Arizona in the Pac-12 Championship Game. He is not a great pass rusher, making him a better fit for the 3-4 scheme, but his size makes him hard to pass up at 6-8 and 290 pounds. If he develops an ability to affect the passer, he will be a special pro.”


(31) Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin:

“Whether Marshawn Lynch is back, Gordon would be an awfully enticing addition to the Seahawks offense. Darrell Bevell’s got the Wisconsin connection, and Gordon — who’s been compared to Jamaal Charles — could be the best running back to enter the draft in the last three years. You’ve heard about running backs being de-valued. I think Gordon at 31 is a steal.”


(31) D.J. Humphries, OT, Florida:

“Left tackle Russell Okung is entering his contract year at age 27 (and could outprice himself for the Seahawks), and Justin Britt was up and down at right tackle as a rookie starter. Humphries’ nasty demeanor and athleticism show up on tape and fit the kind of player the Seahawks seem to seek every year.”

(63) Breshad Perriman, WR, Central Florida:

“A group of undrafted receivers could use a little help, especially with Paul Richardson likely to miss the early part of the season. Perriman’s intriguing skills could fit Seattle’s needs nicely.”


(31) Cameron Erving, OL, Florida State:

“The two-time defending NFC champions boast one of the league’s best rosters but free agency and injury concerns could make Pete Carroll and John Schneider even more difficult to predict this year than most. And that’s saying something. The 6-5, 308-pound Erving has switched from defensive tackle to left tackle to center in college. He has the length, athleticism and tenacity scouts like. The Seahawks could see the versatile athlete as a potential replacement for left guard James Carpenter, a pending free agent.”


(31) Marcus Peters, CB, Washington:

With Byron Maxwell likely departing via free agency and Jeremy Lane expected to start the season on the sideline because of injuries, cornerback shoots to the top of Seattle’s draft needs. And if Peters handles himself well during interviews, he could join his mentor (Marshawn Lynch) in Seattle.”


(31) Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State:
“The Seahawks need play-makers in their receiving corps. They love athletic players, so I have to believe that they’d consider Combine standout Jaelen Strong, who has loads of potential, at the end of the first round.”

Pick change; previously Sammie Coates, WR


(31) Jalen Collins, CB, LSU:

“There’s a buzz building around Collins. He’s a little raw coming out of LSU, but his length and man skills are obvious. Byron Maxwell has a chance to cash in via free agency and Jeremy Lane may miss the start of the season after word came out that he tore his ACL. Collins is a perfect fit for Seattle’s scheme.”
