The Seahawks could use some help on the offensive line to give Russell Wilson more time in the pocket. The rising Ali Marpet is a great fit for the blocking scheme, and he can pretty much play anywhere up front.

Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson
The Seahawks were really missing Brandon Mebane. They need some help at defensive tackle, even once Mebane returns from his hamstring injury next year.
Rd. 4, Pk. 13
Mitch Morse, OT/G, Missouri
The Seahawks traded away their starting center to Seattle and managed to acquire this pick in the process. It makes sense that they'd find a replacement for Max Unger here. They could use Ali Marpet at center (selected in the second round of my mock), and if so, Mitch Morse can play guard.

Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas
The Seahawks lost their former Super Bowl MVP in free agency to the Raiders. Depth will be needed at this position.
Rd. 4, Pk. 35
Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
The Seahawks lost a couple members of their secondary this offseason, so they could look to replenish depth in the middle rounds.
Rd. 5, Pk. 31
Justin Cox, S/CB, Mississippi State
Byron Maxwell signed with the Eagles, while Tharold Simon was atrocious in the Super Bowl when he had to replace Jeremy Lane.
Rd. 5, Pk. 34
Chris Conley, WR, Georgia
The Seahawks traded for Jimmy Graham, but they could still stand to add another play-maker, as their receiving corps doesn't have much talent.
The Seahawks could use an interior defensive lineman capable of collapsing the pocket.
Bennett totaled 40 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, three passes broken up and three forced fumbles in 2014. The senior is a fast gap-shooter who can cause disruption in the backfield. He also can get pummeled in the ground game.
In 2013, Bennett totaled 42 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss, seven tackles and three forced fumbles. The 6-foot-2, 293-pounder has some quickness and needs to add weight.
Rd. 3, Pk. 31
Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
The Seahawks get a replacement for Max Unger.
Dismukes played well in 2014 and looked improved as a pass-protector. He was a Rimington Trophy finalist for 2013 as he did a tremendous job of protecting Nick Marshall while opening up a lot of lanes for Tre Mason. Dismukes was a First-Team SEC selection as well that year, and Auburn graded him out at 90 percent on the season. He is very quick and agile, plus has some strength.
Dismukes (6-3, 296) continually improved over his career with the Tigers. He entered the starting lineup as a freshman and never looked back. The senior continued to lead Auburn's offensive line with his run blocking and pass protection.
Rd. 4, Pk. 13
Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland
The Seahawks could use more talent and competition at receiver.
Diggs (6-0, 195) is a speed receiver with durability issues. The junior caught 52 passes for 654 yards and five touchdowns in 2014. He suffered a lacerated kidney against Penn State that caused him to miss the last two games of the 2014 regular season.
Diggs recorded 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 average) and three touchdowns in 2013. He broke his right fibula that October and missed the rest of the season. Diggs caught 54 passes for 848 yards and six scores in 2012. The freshman also contributed as a runner and returner with two kick-return touchdowns.
Rd. 4, Pk. 31
Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado State
The Seahawks could use a few offensive line options to upgrade the right side.
The 6-foot-5, 309-pounder did a nice job as Garrett Grayson's blind-side protector the past two seasons. He didn't allow a sack in 2013 and went the entire 2014 regular season before allowing a sack against Utah in his bowl game. Sambrailo's Senior Bowl performance illustrated that he could use more power for the NFL in his base and upper body. Sambrailo also can get caught reaching too much. He looks more like he needs a redshirt year or two of development.
Rd. 4, Pk. 35
Ladarius Gunter, CB, Miami
The Seahawks grab another big corner to play press man.
Gunter had 28 tackles with six passes broken up and two interceptions this year. He had a quality week at the Senior Bowl and played better than expected. Gunter (6-1, 200) looks like a press-man and zone corner.
Russell Wilson could definitely use a legitimate #1 wideout to catch passes. I would be tempted to slot Dorial Green-Beckham here, but given the whole Percy Harvin/locker room thing, I'm pretty sure the Seahawks are going to stick with guys who have little or no character concerns.
Doug Baldwin has done well, but I don't see him as a true #1 receiver. Paul Richardson is not going to be worth starting anytime soon (I considered him a 4th rounder last year when conducting my 2 round mock for 2014). Chris Matthews looked great in the Super Bowl, but I don't think he's a #1 receiver based on just one good game.
Sammie Coates is size and speed personified. He could make for a nice jump-ball option for Russell Wilson. It's also worth noting that Coates played in an offense that called for a good amount of run blocking from its receivers, something that could bode well for a team that has had its success rest on the shoulders of a true ball control team, relying on its great defense and ground game.
It's hard to say were DGB will wind up. He's not getting picked in Round 1, and may last late into the 3rd Round like other troubled college standouts. The Seahawks could try to cash in on the talented prospect.
Steal. I originally wanted Williams to go early in the 2nd round, but I had teams go after more dire needs. Freefall, but I definitely should have paid more attention. Williams should not fall this far down, simply because he is already a late 1st round talent in a class with virtually nothing at the tight end position.
I really like Chris Matthews - as a CFL fan, I loved watching him in Winnipeg - and maybe Seattle will give him a shot. However, they could use another, more pro-certain receiver. Jaelen Strong, like his name, is a physical catcher and has good size and hands. Jermaine Kearse, meanwhile, is a free agent, while Doug Baldwin is overrated (and immature).
