2014 Seattle Seahawks Mock Draft: Post Free-Agency Edition

pete carroll

The Seattle Seahawks have lost a few quality players in Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, and Walter Thurmond. Although they will be drafting late in every round, this draft is ridiculously deep. The Seahawks need to improve their play on the offensive line. There will be a ton of quality players that will fall in this year's draft, and the Seahawks should get a ton of quality players. Check out Seattle's post free-agency mock draft edition.

Round 1: Timmy Jernigan

Round 1: Timmy Jernigan

After losing Red Bryant to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Seattle Seahawks could use an upgrade at the defensive tackle position. Enter Timmy Jernigan, the second team All-American who was one of the best defensive tackles in college football in 2013. Jernigan could come in day one and start at the 3-technique position. At 6-foot-2, 300 pounds, Jernigan has the size to do so.

Round 2: Cyril Richardson

At 6-foot-5, 330 pounds, Cyril Richardson is a mauler. He is big enough to hold his ground in the passing game, and he is athletic enough to get to the second level in the running game. The fact that he plays in the Big 12 is also something that is really encouraging. Although they were dominant in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seahawks need to improve their guard play. Drafting Richardson would do just that.

Round 4: Brandon Coleman

Round 4: Brandon Coleman

Brandon Coleman could very well go higher in this draft, but he has some character concerns and he has inconsistent hands. If Seattle drafts him, the Seahawks could sprinkle him into their offense right away. With some NFL seasoning, Coleman could become an impact player as soon as the end of the 2014 season. With Golden Tate leaving for the Detroit Lions, the Seahawks need to bring in a receiver. Coleman would be a good fit.

Round 5: Colt Lyerla

Colt Lyerla was a player that was used in a ton of ways at Oregon. He was kicked off the team due to multiple off-field concerns, but that doesn’t mean an NFL team shouldn’t take a chance on him. At the NFL Combine, Lyerla opened a ton of eyes. Even if he doesn’t pan out in the NFL, Lyerla would only cost a fifth-round pick in the draft. He would be the prototypical high-risk, high-reward type of player for the Seahawks.

Round 6: Michael Sam

Michael Sam had one of the most productive college seasons in 2013. But his body and the media that will surround him have hurt his chances at becoming a second day draft pick. Pass rushers are at a premium in this league, and the Seahawks could use another one after Chris Clemons signed with the Jaguars. Pete Carroll would make sure that this locker room would accept this unique talent. I honestly believe Sam is a great fit for this team.

Round 7: Matt Patchan

Round 7: Matt Patchan

Matt Patchan was a hot name at the NFL Combine. He ran the fastest 40-time, and he was pretty impressive on the bench press too. His college career was riddled by injuries, but there is potential with this Boston College product. He is an athletic tackle who could find his niche in this offense. Patchan could also play the guard position, which makes him even more valuable.
