2013 NFL Mock Draft: Seahawks to take a receiver, defensive tackle?

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The Seahawks could draft explosive Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson with their first-round pick, according to one mock draft.

The Seattle Seahawks' lack of reliable receivers could lead the team to drafting a wideout in the first round, according to the latest mock draft from Rob Rang of CBSSports.com.

Rang has the Seahawks pegged to select Tennessee Volunteers' wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson with the 23rd pick in the first round. The junior wide receiver caught 46 passes for 778 yards and five touchdowns for the Vols in 2012, and Rang suggests that the versatile receiver's athleticism could help a Seattle squad that lacks playmakers at the position.

Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout.com has the Seahawks going in a different direction with their first-round pick, tabbing them to select Alabama defensive tackle Jesse Williams. Brugler believes that it might be in Seattle's best interest to add some depth on the defensive line, especially with Alan Branch headed for free agency this winter. Williams, a 6'4, 320-pound senior, was a key piece of the Tide's defensive line in 2012 and has the ability to play anywhere on the defensive front.
