It’s draft time! We’ve had our experts tell you who will be drafted where, but now it’s time for you to throw on your GM cap and decide for yourself.

The next day, we will compile the results and you can see who is off the board. Disagree with all of the options? Be sure to write in your pick below in the comments section. OK, let’s get into it. The Seattle Seahawks are on the clock.
The Super Bowl champs have done a nice job this offseason of keeping their core intact.
While the Seahawks have one of the deepest rosters in the league, they do a nice job of bringing in players at a cheaper cost to compete with their high-priced veterans. General manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll work in tandem to build a competitive roster from top to bottom and do so by valuing each draft pick equally.
The Seahawks could look to bolster their offensive line to fortify their strength, which is their running game. Also, adding another dynamic weapon for quarterback Russell Wilson could benefit the team. So, who will the Seahawks select at No. 32 overall?
The 6-foot-4, 273-pound defensive end has a long frame with room to add bulk. His blend of size and speed is rare and he was productive in the SEC, starting all 14 games and filling the stat sheet on a weekly basis.
Boise State DE Demarcus Lawrence
Lawrence has been one of the hottest rising prospects in the past month. Several teams have brought Lawrence in for a visit. The 6-foot-3, 251-pound defensive end is very athletic, but some may consider this a reach.
Indiana WR Cody Latimer
Latimer would give the Seahawks another threat on the outside. Latimer has very good size and reliable hands. While he was sidelined during the draft process with a foot injury, he’s been one of many draft analysts’ favorite players.
UCLA G Xavier Su’a-Filo
It’s certainly not the sexy pick, but this could help fortify the interior of their offensive line for the next decade. The Seahawks are known for their ground game and Su’a-Filo is the consensus top offensive guard in this year’s draft.
Ohio State CB Bradley Roby
The 5-foot-11, 194-pound cornerback is an athletic freak and displayed his straight-line speed in Indianapolis. Roby has great size and looks the part, but has been knocked for his inconsistent play and off-the-field troubles.
