With less than three weeks until the 2014 NFL Draft, set to be held May 8-10 at New York City's Radio City Music Hall, Evan Silva of rotoworld.com shares his latest two-round mock. At pick No. 32, Silva likes the Seahawks targeting a player whose name has been absent from these mock draft round-ups to date - Minnesota defensive lineman Ra'Shede Hageman. Silva says, "The Seahawks run a defense that utilizes 3-4 concepts on the strong side and 4-3 concepts on the weak side. Their strong-side end for the last three years was Red Bryant, whom Seattle was forced to release in a salary-cap move. Hageman is a far more athletic version of Bryant with much more disruptive ability. The biggest knock on Hageman is his inconsistent snap-to-snap effort. He would be a role player on the Seahawks, contributing 25-30 snaps per game."
Joel Klatt of FOXSports.com analyzes draft needs for each club around the NFC West, believing the Seahawks will go with a tight end or offensive lineman in the draft's first round. Klatt cites two tight end prospects with collegiate ties to the Pacific Northwest - the University of Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Oregon's Colt Lyerla - as possible targets for the Seahawks.
