NFL Draft Rumors: Seahawks Looking At David DeCastro?

The Seattle Seahawks hold a draft pick midway through the first round, which means there is plenty of uncertainty as to who they're going to end up picking.

The Seahawks would love a right guard.

Chad Reuter of NFL.com reports.

General manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll settled the team's biggest need (or so they hope) by giving former Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn his chance to be "The Man" in Seattle. They could use a legitimate outside threat at receiver across from Sidney Rice, in addition to the promising Doug Baldwin and solid tight end Zach Miller.

Breno Giacomini re-signed with the team and could start at right tackle, as 2011 first-round pick James Carpenter moves inside. But don't be surprised if the team picks up Seattle-area native David DeCastro in the first round to solidify things in front of Flynn and lead the way for multi-million dollar running back Marshawn Lynch.

The Seahawks have plenty of other needs. They could use a linebacker to help out David Hawthorne if he decides to return, or just to provide assistance to Leroy Hill. They could use a defensive end to take care of Red Bryant and Chris Clemons. And they could use depth behind the cornerbacks.
