2. Third round, 87th overall: Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State

The Seahawks spent a good amount of money at the defensive end position this year, so with the addition of Jordan Hill, they are getting more beef for the defensive interior. When I watched Hill at Penn State, I saw a guy who was capable of taking over games but he is definitely not a flashy all-around prospect. This is a guy who will come into work every day and tick off the offensive linemen and other teammates around him because he is going to try so much harder than them. He is relentless, making plays behind the line of scrimmage and creating opportunities for other players as well. I think for the Seahawks, he can immediately rotate in on pass rushing downs, and give them a little bit of pass rush ability compared to the run stuffing prowess of Red Bryant and Brandon Mebane on the interior. Rushing the quarterback is an area the Seahawks have been trying desperately to get better at the last two offseasons.
