The Seahawks have selected four players. None of them play quarterback.

The latest is Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas, a third-round choice.

Lucas made 42 consecutive starts at right tackle, playing over 3,000 offensive snaps in his career. Mississippi State’s Charles Cross, the No. 9 overall choice, is expected to start at left tackle.

The Seahawks drafted Minnesota edge rusher Boye Mafe and Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III in the second round.

The team currently has Drew Lock, Geno Smith and Jacob Eason on its depth chart at quarterback.

  1. The front office is doing great. Get the pieces together that will help the team win. QB, Lock, gets to show what he can do. If he, or Smith bomb out this season, then next year with the two first round picks, they have enough draft capital to try & get another franchise QB.

  2. Love the picks so far this draft. Hawks are nailing all of them and setting us up for success for the long term.

  3. Why pick a QB if you don’t think he has a chance of beating out what they currently have. Go grab Mayfield on the cheap and run with it.

  4. They are doing the right thing.. Probably making Russ sick watching them finally draft a support system. Plus, they can get one of these Rookies or even Baker for a 5th or 6th. Nothing to see here.

  5. Some weird kind of irony that it isn’t until after Russ left that the Seahawks decided to invest heavily in their O-line. On the plus side for the long term this is great for them, let the young pups get the starting jobs and take this year to learn their craft. If the team does well then great, if not then they might just be able to either land a good QB prospect in the draft next year or entice a QB in FA to sign with them.

  6. High quality draft for Seattle. Anchoring their offensive line while getting a solid edge rusher and RB is setting the table for the future. I liked the selections a lot. Mayfield will be a Seahawk before the season starts. And we’ll get him on the cheap.

  7. Birds are waiting for Browns to eat half Bakers 18 mill. Halh off sale any time – unless Saints jump.

  8. Starting Lock behind a couple of rookie tackles in a tough division seems like they are tanking for Stroud or Young without saying they are tanking. It’s probably a good strategy but will make for a long season in Seattle.

  9. Great draft so far by Seattle. They said that if Lock were in this draft, he’d be their #1, apparently they weren’t lying.

    Why reach for a QB you don’t think is the future, and leave him out there with no line and possibly hurt RBs.

    Secure the trenches and see what Lock can do. If he isn’t good, they’ll have high picks next year when the QBs are much better.

  10. Right or wrong…I heard that Seattle views Drew Lock as their draft pick and values him over this crop of college quarterbacks…but Seattle also values competition, so it is possible they set-up a Tarvaris Jackson, Matt Flynn, Russell Wilson like quarterback scenario….
