Continuing the team’s search for an offensive tackle in this year’s draft, Seahawks head coach took a second visit to Oklahoma this weekend to talk to Oklahoma State offensive tackle Russell Okung. Most mock drafts have Okung going to Washington at No. 4. Okung is unlikely to fall to Seattle at No. 6, but Seattle has enough ammunition with the No. 6 and No. 14 overall picks to move in the draft if they really like Okung.
Detroit, with the No. 2 overall pick, reportedly wants to move down in the draft. And Seattle already has worked with the Lions in the Rob Sims deal.
