The first round of the NFL Draft is set for tonight in Chicago and the Seattle Seahawks hold the 26th pick in the draft. 

Who is Coming to Seattle, and Who is Going

In the offseason, Seattle signed cornerback Brandon Browner to a one year deal, as well as cornerback Jeremy Lane,adding to their already vaunted secondary. 

On the offensive side of the ball, the Seahawks signed wide receiver Jermaine Kearse to a three year deal. 

The Seahawks will be looking to rebuild their offensive line after Russell Okung left for Denver and J.R. Sweezy left for Tampa. They will also look to replace Brandon Mebane on the defensive line. 

So what are the Seahawks looking for in this year's draft? 

Projecting the Draft

Here are some projections. 

NFL.com projects that the Seahawks will take A'Shawn Robinson, a defensive tackle out of Alabama. Seattle lost Brandon Mebane in free agency, Robinson could serve as his replacement. 

Greg Bedard of Sports Illustrated projects that the Seahawks will take Ryan Kelly, a center out of Alabama. Bedard's colleague Don Banks is also saying Ryan Kelly.

Fox Sports projects that the Seahawks will take Le'Raven Clark, an offensive tackle out of Texas Tech who has a high ceiling, according to scouts. 

Newsday projects that Seattle will go with Jason Spriggs, an offensive tackle from Indiana as a replacement for Okung and Sweezy.

Finally, ESPN projects that Seattle will take Germain Ifedi, san offensive tackle from Texas A&M. According to scouts, Ifedi will be able to compete for a starting job right away. 

 

In summary, most experts expect the Seahawks to go offensive line or defensive line in this draft as that is where they were hurt in the offseason. 

GoLocal will have second round projections on Friday.
