In his latest mock draft, Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com has the Seattle Seahawks selecting Wisconsin offensive lineman Gabe Carimi as a potential replacement at right tackle.
Here’s what Rang has to say:
“Pete Carroll preached a ball-control, run-heavy offense when he was hired in Seattle. Unfortunately for the Seahawks, age, injury and inexperience up front grounded their running game. They averaged only 89 rushing yards a game last season, which was 31st in the NFL. Carimi, a four-year starter at left tackle, lacks the elite athleticism to remain there in the NFL, which could push him into the second portion of the round. The 2010 Outland Trophy winner has the bulk, strength and physicality in the running game to star on the right side.”
Chad Reuter of NFLDraftScout.com has the Seahawks selecting Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey.
Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly has Seattle taking Mississippi State offensive tackle Derek Sherrod in the first round.
Russ Lande has Seattle taking Missouri defensive end Aldon Smith at No. 25.
Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network reports Temple defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson will meet with Seattle this week. Seahawks defensive line coach Todd Wash attended Wilkerson’s pro day last week.
Cal safety Chris Conte is scheduled for a private workout with Seattle.
