After winning the Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks have the 32nd pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. Who will they select? Will any of the mock draft lists get it right?
We are deep into mock draft season, and everyone has their own theory on which player each team might select when they are on the clock. The draft process is such a compelling part of the NFL experience, they should really make a movie about it. Oh wait, I guess they did.
Who will the ‘Hawks pick? Will Pete Carroll find another diamond in the rough that will turn into a star? Here are a list of “experts” who have weighed in and put together their own mock draft list. Of course, every mock draft is subject to change.
Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com: Another vote for Su’A-Filo
Don Banks, Sports Illustrated: Another vote for Benjamin
Nate Davis, USA Today: Another vote for Ealy
Analysis: Not a lot of shocks here. The mock drafts tend to focus on team needs, which for the Seahawks is arguably offensive line, defensive end and wide receiver. Benjamin may be gone by the time the Seahawks pick, and offensive line may be the conventional pick after the Seahawks lost Paul McQuistan and Breno Giacomini. That said, the Seahawks don’t tend to be “conventional” when it comes to the draft, so anything is possible. The suggested trade with Jacksonville is interesting, though one wonders if the ‘Hawks would keep their pick with such a deep draft.
