Seahawks take J.R. Sweezy with their 1st 7th round pick from NC State
18th Pick 7th Round 225th overall.
The Seattle Seahawks with 1st pick of the 7th round 18th pick of the round 225 take North Carolina State defensive tackle J.R. Sweezy.
Seahawks coaching staff plan on playing J.R. Sweezy at offensive guard we've learned via twitter from @Seahawks.
Seahawks have now picked seven defensive players, or six if Sweezy plays guard.
Mayock says Sweezy's versatility is the key to his draft value.
He could play a three-technique defensive tackle within a 4-3 scheme, or he could convince a 3-4 team to take a shot on him as a defensive end.

Sweezy is a decent athlete but is somewhat stiff in his movements. He has good initial quickness off the ball and generally is able to read blocking schemes and disrupt plays. He is an effort player, and this is the key to his sideline-to-sideline success. He even could be a candidate to get down in a three-point stance and hand-fight with faster players.
Sweezy is a stiff mover and could have trouble trying to play inside in the NFL. In a 3-4 scheme, he could be more of a gap-filler, which is where he has the most value.
