Your draft option for Seattle is in

The voters have made their selection. With the 32nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the voters say the Seattle Seahawks should select on offensive lineman.

With six multiple choice options, almost half the Sound-Off Saturday voters (49 percent) selected option A, which was to pick an offensive lineman at the end of Round 1.

Clearly, it's a big need area for the Seahawks after losing Breno Giacomini and Paul McQuistan to free agency. Even with those players last year, the offensive line was the weakest area for Seattle in its Super Bowl winning season.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider said last week that the team will give 2013 rookie Michael Bowie a chance to earn the starting job at right tackle to replace Giacomini. The coaches are high on 2013 rookie Alvin Bailey, and the Seahawks added two offensive linemen in free agency -- Greg Van Roten and Stephen Schilling.

But it will be a shocker if the Seahawks don't select at least one offensive lineman early in the draft, and maybe a couple of them. Offensive linemen who could still be available at the end of Round 1 are UCLA guard Xavier Su'a-Filo or guard/tackle Joel Bitonio of Nevada.

A distant second in the choice of the voters (31 percent) was for the Seahawks to trade down and get an additional pick. Seattle has only six draft picks as it stands now.

The Seahawks gave Minnesota their third-round pick this year as part of the Percy Harvin deal. They also gave Oakland a seventh-round pick for Terrelle Pryor. Seattle has two fifth-round picks, gaining an extra one from Oakland in the deal that sent quarterback Matt Flynn to the Raiders last year.

But trading for an additional pick isn't a bad option if the Seahawks believe they still can get the player they want a little later than the end of the first round.

The third choice of the voters was picking a wide receiver, which garnered 9 percent of the vote. Choice F, which was something other than the listed choices, received one more vote than the choice of trading up, which was at 4 percent of the vote. Most voters in the "other" category said the Seahawks should take the best player available, regardless of position.

It was a bit surprising that picking a defensive lineman received the fewest votes of the six options. There is a decent possibility the Seahawks would pick a defensive lineman at 32, possibly Notre Dame's Stephon Tuitt if he's still on the board.
