Did I actually do an 11-pick Seahawks mock all the way to the 7th round? Yup.

Second round, pick #63 -- Ali Marpet, OL, Hobart: Division III left tackle who gained traction at the Senior Bowl and upped his stock at the combine. Strong and athletic player who will need to move inside to guard or perhaps center. Nasty playing personality; Marpet has the right kind of chip on his shoulder.

Third round, pick #95 -- Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary: Quick player for his size (6-0, 210) who understands how to work in coverage. However, he's more a physical receiver than a true burner. Has NFL upside as a second or third receiver with some work.

Fourth round, pick #112 -- Senquez Golson, CB, Mississippi: Smaller (5-9, 176) defender who led the SEC in picks in 2014 with 10. Has excellent off-coverage skills and will stick and stay with receivers through their routes. Can play bail coverage and projects pretty well as a future slot cornerback.

Fourth round, pick #130 -- Za'Darius Smith, DE, Kentucky: Hybrid end with good size (6-4, 274), decent power and speed, good hands and tremendous effort. Fights to disengage through the play. Can kick inside to three-tecch situationally.

Fourth round, pick #134 -- Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State: Davison is a 6-2, 316-pound fireplug who plays one-tech nose, can take on and slip through double teams, and shows relentless chase to the sideline. Gets overwhelmed at times because he's kind of squatty, but can be dominant when he keeps his pad level low.

Fifth round, pick #167 -- Anthony Harris, FS/CB, Virginia: Harris' size (6-1, 183) may have some seeing him as a cornerback convert, but he plays the back third pretty well, and this is an era when teams are looking for legit center-fielders. He can trail deep receivers and has above-average ball skills. Long-strider who struggles when changing direction, which makes him the kind of defensive back Seattle has taken chances on through the later rounds in the Carroll/Schneider era.

Fifth round, pick #170 -- Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford: A work in progress. Good size (6-0, 221) and decent speed. Montgomery could be more than a return man if he cleans up his route concepts. Not yet the sum of his parts, but there's potential there as a slot/outside receiver hybrid.

Sixth round, pick #181 -- Zach Vigil, ILB, Utah State: My draft crush! Was insanely productive for the Aggies in 2014 -- 156 tackles, nine sacks, 20.5 tackles for loss, a pick, four passes defensed and a forced fumble. Smaller player (6-2, 236) who gets by on sheer effort. Reads gaps very well and slips through to drop ballcarriers in the backfield. Will struggle against better blockers in the NFL, but at the very least, could be an absolute demon on special teams.

Sixth round, pick #209 -- Robert Myers, OT/OG, Tennessee State: Big man who could stand to move off the snap more quickly, but fits Seattle's prototype preference for mauling guards at 6-5 and 326 pounds.

Sixth round, pick #214 -- Tray Walker, CB, Texas Southern: Needs work on his overall ball skills and strength of competition is a question, but Walker is a big pass defender with a long stride and a great playing temperament. Downhill tackler who is willing to get physical, and has shown the ability to play press coverage.

Seventh round, pick #248 -- Josh Shirley, OLB, UNLV: Former Huskies defender who transferred to UNLV before the 2014 season. Dismissed by UCLA earlier in his collegiate career after a felony theft charge. Struggles to bend the edge at times and has an inconsistent spin move, but there's potential at the backup LEO position. 6-1, 234.
