Who will the Seahawks select with the 26th pick in the draft?

With the first wave of free agency over and pro days in full swing, here's a look at whom analysts are mocking to the Seattle Seahawks with the 26th pick.

ESPN.com's Mel Kiper Jr. has them going with Virginia Tech cornerback Kendall Fuller, while Todd McShay projects Ole Miss defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche.


Josh Norris of Rotoworld mocks Florida defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard to the Seahawks:

Bullard, who wants to play defensive tackle, can be utilized in a similar way to Malik Jackson. The Florida defensive lineman surprised me with his athleticism (he’s a great athlete) and can help the Seahawks generate interior disruption.


Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com has them taking Indiana offensive lineman Jason Spriggs:

Seattle has several question marks on the offensive line, and left tackle Russell Okung is a free agent. Spriggs has core strength issues, but his frame and athleticism will be extremely appealing for teams with needs on the offensive line.


Chris Burke of SI.com has them going with Stanford guard Joshua Garnett:

His physicality may make Garnett more of a man-blocking fit. His consistent work pulling and getting to the second level provided evidence that Garnett can move well enough to excel as a zone blocker, too. Either way, Garnett has emerged as arguably the top guard in this class and the Seahawks must improve in the trenches.


Rob Rang of CBSSports.com projects Michigan State offensive tackle Jack Conklin:

Seattle's offensive line was a weak spot in 2015 and has already lost two former starters in J.R. Sweezy and Alvin Bailey in free agency, with two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung a candidate to leave as well. The cap-challenged Seahawks may be forced to look to the draft for reinforcements. Conklin is a former walk-on turned All-American who plays with the aggression and physicality that the Seahawks lacked up front a year ago.


Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com projects Ohio State CB Eli Apple:

He fits the profile of what the Seahawks look for in CBs.


Bucky Brooks of NFL.com goes with Eastern Kentucky DE Noah Spence:

After losing Bruce Irvin in free agency, the Seahawks could use another designated pass-rusher to play a key role in their sub packages.


Pete Schrager of FoxSports.com goes with Oklahoma State DE Emmanuel Ogbah:

Ogbah had a good week in Indianapolis, running well and looking and measuring even bigger and stronger than many scouts had hoped. He had 11 sacks as a sophomore because of his freakish athleticism. He then doubled down and had 13 sacks in 2015, even though he was a focus of opposing offenses' blocking schemes. The Seahawks love Frank Clark, their second-round pick a season ago. But I'd expect Bruce Irvin to sign elsewhere as a free agent.
