With the 199th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…their second Conference-USA player in a row, OT Garrett Scott from Marshall.  Scott played tackle in college, but will likely move inside to guard in the pros.  He needs to bulk up a bit and struggles badly with run blocking (he isn’t going to win any strongman contests), but he fares well in pass protection, particularly against speed rushers.

His main value is his speed and athleticism, and according to the reports I’ve read he really shines on trap blocks and when he’s asked to pull and lead block.  He looks comfortable in space and plays with decent technique.  If he can improve his run blocking (which, granted, is a big if) and build up his strength he could be a serviceable backup or even a candidate for a starting guard spot down the road.
