Seattle Seahawks: Grading Each Pick Of The 2015 NFL Draft

The Seattle Seahawks will begin their season amongst the NFL's best once again. After the addition of All-Pro Tight End Jimmy Graham in the offseason, the Seahawks seem poised to be right back in the mix for a third straight Super Bowl run. After adding Graham at a cost of their 2015 first-round pick and Center Max Unger, they would be sitting out the first round of last weekend's action.

Here are the Seahawks draft results and analysis:

Round 2, Pick 31 (63) Frank Clark, DE, Michigan -- This is a very interesting pick. Clark had a lot of character concerns coming out of Michigan, and was ultimately dismissed from the program. A lot of analysts had him slipping to at least the third round, but the Seahawks feel as though he is a good fit in their system. An excellent pass rusher with great size, Clark could prove to be worth the risk, but it is one not worth taking at this spot. Grade: C+

Round 3, Pick 5 (69) Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State -- The Seahawks once again go receiver in the second round after taking Colorado's Paul Richardson in last years draft. Lockett is a good fit in Seattle, and might be one of the most precise route runners in this years class. Grade: A

Round 4, Pick 31 (130) Terry Poole, OG, San Diego State -- Poole will be a welcome addition to the Seahawks offensive line. He will provide much needed depth, and is a great addition for the run game. Although not seen as a great value here, Poole will upgrade the Seahawks interior with good size and athleticism. Grade: B-

Round 4, Pick 35 (134) Mark Glowinski, OG, West Virginia
-- With their first comp pick of the draft, the Seahawks brought in more competition for the interior offensive line. Glowinski is a mauler, and will definitely compete with fellow fourth-round pick Terry Poole for some playing time early on in Seattle. Grade: B+

Round 5, Pick 34 (170) Tye Smith, CB, Towson
-- The Legion of Boom will add another slot corner to their ranks with Tye Smith. Smith has good size, 6'0", but will likely need to add bulk to withstand NFL hits. He is just 195 pounds, and is seen as not physical enough at this point to be a factor on an NFL defense. However, there is no place better for a young corner to develop then in Seattle. Grade: C+

Round 6, Pick 33 (209) Obum Gwacham, DE Oregon State
-- One of the more intriguing picks of the entire draft. Gwacham played Wide Receiver early on in college, and has a transition ahead of him. Luckily, he will be joining a very talented defensive front. Good pick for the late rounds. Grade: B+

Round 6, Pick 38 (214) Kristjian Sokoli, DT Buffalo
-- A pro day superstar. He had very impressive measurables, but his tape is not as strong. He could develop nicely, but needs time to hone his pass rush skills and learn how to handle doubleteams. Grade: C

Round 7, Pick 31 (248) Ryan Murphy, FS Oregon State
-- An interesting late round selection. Murphy is a ball-hawking FS and could learn quickly from the experience in the Seahawk secondary. He has intriguing size, and could make the switch to SS in the NFL. Grade: B+
