In his first two mock drafts of 2014, ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. had the Seattle Seahawks selecting Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson with their first-round pick, knowing Seattle might lose Golden Tate in free agency.
Kiper was right. Tate signed with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, so adding a receiver becomes a bigger priority. The Seahawks also now may look for a receiver who can return punts because Tate was one of the best punt returners in the league last season.
Even if Tate had stayed, the Seahawks still want a big, physical receiver to add to the mix. Robinson (6-foot-3, 210) fits the mold.
But Seattle also needs help on the offensive line at guard and tackle, and a few linemen from the combine got their attention. And with the team releasing defensive ends Chris Clemons and Red Bryant, they might want help in that area, even with Michael Bennett coming back.
Here's what Kiper sees for the Seahawks in his mock draft 3.0.
