NFL Mock Draft 2013: Seahawks select Blidi Wreh-Wilson in 2nd round

Now without a first-round pick, Seattle will have to focus their attention on the next tier of prospects. Could a corner fill a big need for them on draft weekend?

The Seattle Seahawks have found the offensive weapon they desired in the form of Percy Harvin, but it did cost them their first-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft and then some. However, it would be hard to say if they could have done any better with the 25th overall pick than Harvin, even though it does mean they won't be picking until toward the end of the second round barring more moves. How will they fill their other needs, even if they don't appear to have many pressing ones at the moment?

The biggest apparent needs for the Seahawks right now are depth on the offensive line, outside linebacker, depth at tight end, depth at safety, and nickel corner. Though Seattle might have the best secondary in the league, there's always the matter of making sure they keep it that way, as evidenced by Brandon Browner's four-game suspension at the end of last season and knowing that they could have trouble giving long-term deals to all of their players. For those reasons, has projected cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson out of Connecticut to Seattle with the 56th overall pick.

Wreh-Wilson, 6'2, 195, could fit the bill as a big and physical corner that the team has had success with under Pete Carroll and company. There's a decent chance that the Seahawks do go in this direction, especially now that they've filled their need at wide receiver.
