Seahawks conclude second round by drafting tackle Justin Britt

Posted May 9, 2014

The Seahawks addressed depth on the offensive line with the last pick in the second round of the NFL by selecting Missouri tackle Justin Britt.


The Seahawks wrapped up the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft on Friday by selecting Missouri tackle Justin Britt.

The 6-foot-6, 325-pound Britt was the 64th pick overall.

His 2012 season ended with a knee injury, but Britt returned to start 14 games at left tackle last season. He started 36 games in his career, and was credited with 35 touchdown-resulting blocks and 253 knockdowns.

The Seahawks do not have a pick in the third round after trading it to the Minnesota Vikings in last year’s deal to acquire wide receiver Percy Harvin.

The Seahawks have six picks in the final four rounds on Saturday, including three in the fourth round (108, 111 and 132 overall). They have one pick each in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds (172, 208 and 227 overall).
