The 2014 NFL Draft came to a close on Saturday and the Seahawks came away with nine players that they feel will potentially help Seattle go back to the Super Bowl this season.
The Seahawks worked magic in the draft, pulling off multiple trades so they could stock up on late round picks while filling all of their needs throughout the three day draft.
Here is a list of the Seahawks draft picks:
- Round 2, Pick 13 (45) -- Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado
- Round 2, Pick 32 (64) — Justin Britt, OT, Missouri
- Round 4, Pick 8 (108) — Cassius Marsh, DE, UCLA
- Round 4, Pick 23 (123) — Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama
- Round 4, Pick 32 (132) — Kevin Pierre-Louis, OLB, Boston College
- Round 5, Pick 32 (175) — Jimmy Staten, DT, Middle Tennessee State
- Round 6, Pick 23, (199) — Garrett Scott, OT, Marshall
- Round 6, Pick 32, (208) — Eric Pinkins, FS, San Diego State
- Round 7, Pick 12, (227) — Kiero Small, FB, Arkansas
That means the Seahawks took five offensive players and four defensive players. They were able to draft players all over the field, especially on defense. The picked up defensive lineman, a linebacker and help in the secondary.
On offense, they drafted protections for Russell Wilson and also a few offensive weapons for him.
It was an overall successful draft for the Seahawks and, as usual, it looks like they may have found some potential late-round gems that everyone else missed out on.
Just another day at the office for John Schneider and company.
