Seattle Seahawks projections in 2014 NFL mock draft news have been intriguing for fans. In an updated version of the full 2014 NFL mock draft, the Seahawks are projected to target Nevada offensive lineman Joel Bitonio. It is a move that makes sense, but the report from Thursday (May 8) also suggests the team could go after Indiana receiver Cody Latimer or Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman if they are still available.

There are quite a few players that would be a good fit for the Seahawks at the No. 32 slot, but it's also possible that the team could look to trade out of the first round if one of the good quarterbacks is still available. It could make their pick more valuable and entice another franchise to give up a package of picks. With a limited number of selections this year, that's something that might convince the front office in Seattle to drop out of round one.

Assuming no deals are made (highly unlikely), the Seahawks are projected to take Louisville outside line backer and defensive end Marcus Smith with their second round pick (No. 64 overall). If they go defense in the first round, though, they could end up targeting a receiver in the second round to help add to the assets that quarterback Russell Wilson has to work with.

Further Seattle Seahawks projections in this 2014 NFL mock draft include Rice cornerback Phillip Gaines in round four (pick No. 132), Saginaw Valley State receiver Jeff Janis in five (pick No. 146), Cincinnati tight end Blake Annen in round five (pick No. 172), and Winston-Salem outside linebacker Carlos Fields in round six (pick No. 208).

The first round of the draft will begin at 5 p.m. PT on Thursday night (May 8), with the Houston Texans making the first overall pick shortly after the clock starts.
