After trading out of the second round to pick up a third round pick -- something GM John Schneider had indicated he wanted to do -- the Seattle Seahawks used the pick acquired from the Detroit Lions to select offensive guard John Moffitt from Wisconsin with the 11th pick in the third round, 75th overall.
NFL.com says Moffitt "looks the part of an NFL guard with a great frame and a thick lower half. He displays very good football intelligence and understands blocking schemes."
This continues what looks to be a concerted effort to rebuild the offensive line, which was a notable weakness for the team last year, as the team also used its first round pick on an offensive lineman, tackle James Carpenter of Alabama.
