The Seattle Seahawks have fanangled their way to two extra picks than the six they started with in this 2014 NFL Draft. Three of those come in the 4th round, which will begin in the next few hours. Here are five guys I think they could consider with at least the 8th and 11th picks of the round, along with my reasoning for their consideration.

    I’ve had my eyes on Yankey and McCullers since the first “Mocks” were being published. Yankey was a 1st round prediction in early drafts until the similar Bitonio passed him up after the combine. He can play either OG postions and also OT just like Bitonio, and was the big reason why Stanford had broken all of their rushing records in the three seasons he started there as team captain. For the Seahawks whom stress the rushing game, he’d be a natural fit and OL Leader.

    With McCullers, the knock on him is that he doesn’t have natural football instincts. He came up through military prep school to qualify academically for his last two years of college at Tennessee. He basically has to be told his assignments with less ability for variation. But for what his assignments are, he’s unstoppable. He’s huge with long arms like oak branches, so much so that his teammates nicknamed him “Shade Tree”. He manhandles O-Linemen, and double teams with one in each arm at about a 3 yard spread. He a prototypical NT that Seattle coaching could turn into Bryants replacement at 5T. He the unmovable object that wont get many sacks or TkFL, but neither would give up any yards for gain as a clog on the line. Just plop him in on 3rd and short, and goal line stances, and opposing teams run game would be cut off.
