2013 NFL Mock Draft: Seahawks must look to 2nd round now that they have Percy Harvin

USA TODAY Sports

Seattle decided to turn their first pick this year into an established NFL star. What are they going to do with their second?

The Seattle Seahawks have made the biggest free agency headlines of the week by trading for disgruntled Vikings receiver Percy Harvin. While the Seahawks have found the touchdown-maker they desire, it does leave them with one vacancy; a first-round draft pick. It cost Seattle a first- and seventh-round pick this year, plus a third next year to acquire Harvin, meaning that as of now they won't be picking a rookie in the draft until the 56th selection.

So what are they going to do?

It seems pretty certain now that Seattle has addressed their issue at wide receiver and won't be picking another during the first two days of the draft. That still leaves them with some considerable weaknesses on the defensive line, tight end, and outside linebacker. For that reason, Walter Football currently projects DE/DT Margus Hunt of SMU to the Seahawks with the 56th pick of the draft:

Hunt makes sense for Seattle. He's very athletic, so he's the type of player Pete Carroll loves. He could bolster a pass rush that needs to improve, especially in the wake of Colin Kaepernick developing into a dynamic threat in San Francisco.

Hunt is a massive 6'8", 270 pound prospect that has been clocked right around 4.60 in the 40-yard dash, a phenomenal number for someone his size. He would be a project for Pete Carroll and company, but could be amazing value for the second round.

That's something they could use after trading away their first.
