RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle's secondary was already one of the league's best and the Seahawks had signed free agents Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett to help bolster the defensive end position.
That left defensive tackle as one of the few positions of need for the Seahawks defense entering the NFL draft in April.
The Seahawks used two picks on defensive tackles, taking Penn State's Jordan Hill in the third round and Alabama's Jesse Williams in the fifth. Both had already made an impression on the coaching staff by the time mini-camp concluded on Thursday.
Hill and Williams have been thrown into the mix with the veterans and are holding their own as they try to learn the nuances of the pro game.
