Insider's NFL and draft experts have teamed up to give a full breakdown of all that should be considered for each team as it enters the 2013 NFL draft. Here we look at the Seattle Seahawks.

Personnel needs

DT, OLB, CB (nickel), OL (depth)

Major need: Pete Carroll was not happy with his DT interior run defense in 2012, and the unit really struggled to hold up versus opponents with physical run games -- the only real weakness on this elite defense. Alan Branch is an expensive unrestricted free agent to bring back and Brandon Mebane is only adequate (though the other DE, Red Bryant, could slide down inside). You can bet that this coaching staff will solve this need.
