The Seattle Seahawks addressed needs on the offensive line by taking Texas A&M offensive tackle Germain Ifedi with the final pick of the first round of the NFL draft.

Seattle closed out the first round on Thursday after trading down earlier in the night. Ifedi is 6-foot-6, 324 pounds and projects as a right tackle or possibly a guard.

Seattle had the No. 26 pick but traded that selection to Denver, who picked Memphis QB Paxton Lynch. Seattle moved back to No. 31 and picked up the No. 94 overall pick in the third round, giving the team 10 picks in the draft and five in the top 100. It was the second time in three years the Seahawks traded their first-round pick to a team that drafted a quarterback.

It was the eighth time the Seahawks have traded down under general manager John Schneider.
