Seattle Seahawks 7-Round NFL Mock Draft, Late-April Edition

The Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl last year, but you can bet that head coach Pete Carroll is already licking his chops to get the 2014 season rolling. Despite being the most talented team in the league, the Seahawks have some vacancies in the trenches. This is my latest Seahawks seven-round mock draft on Rant Sports. Enjoy!

Round 1: Dominique Easley

Dominique Easley would likely be a top-10 pick in this year's draft if it weren't for the ACL injuries he's had in both knees. Easley is a medical concern, but there is no denying his ability to play when healthy. Easley would be a risk, but if he turns out to be one of the best defensive tackles in the league, it would be one worth taking. He is a quick-twitch three-technique who could fill the void left by Red Bryant.

Round 2: Billy Turner

Round 2: Billy Turner

I am really high on Billy Turner after watching tape on him. In one game I watched, Turner blocked two pass rushers at once. Yes, you read that correctly. Although he played at an FBS school, Turner is well-rounded and it wouldn't surprise me to go in the back end of round two. He can play guard or tackle, and those are two positions the Seahawks need to fill.

Round 4: Cyril Richardson

Another guard taken by the Seahawks in this mock. At the end of the college football season, Cyril Richardson was supposed to be a surefire second-round pick, but a bad combine performance and his fluctuating weight has really affected his draft stock. Richardson could very well fall to the end of fourth round, and the Seahawks could easily use his abilities in the run game.

Round 5a: Devin Street

Round 5a: Devin Street

Devin Street is thin at 195 pounds, but he's 6-foot-3, which tells me he will fill out his body with an NFL training program. Street has solid hands, and he was Tom Savage's no. 1 receiver at Pittsburgh. A deep wide receiver class has hurt his draft stock, but Street is still a talented player. The Seahawks need to fill the void left by Golden Tate in free agency. Drafting Street would do just that.

Round 5b: Dontae Johnson

Round 5b: Dontae Johnson

Dontae Johnson is one of the tallest cornerbacks in the league at 6-foot-3. The Seahawks love tall cornerbacks, and Johnson is just that. Byron Maxwell left in free agency, and the Seahawks need to find his replacement. Although Johnson needs some work in coverage, he has the height and length to be a playmaker for Seattle.

Round 6: Richard Rodgers

Richard Rodgers is not your prototypical tight end. He isn't an in-line tight end like Jace Amaro, but he is capable of blocking in the running game and he can go across the middle to catch passes. The Seahawks would love his versatility. He can line up out wide and he could be an instant contributor in this offense. He would also be a great value pick in the sixth round.
