With the 11th pick in the third round of the NFL Draft – a choice obtained in the trade with the Detroit Lions during the second round – the Seahawks selected Wisconsin guard John Moffitt.
The pick continued a rebuilding of the offensive line, after Alabama tackle James Carpenter was selected in the first round Thursday night.
The 6-foot-4, 319-pound Moffitt started all 13 games at left guard for the Badgers last season. After starting six games at left guard in 2007, he moved to center in 2008 and stared all 13 games. He then started 10 games in 2009 – eight at left guard, two a center.
