Seattle Adds Bulk To O-Line With Missouri OT Justin Britt

Tim Booth, AP Sports Writer

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks addressed their need to add depth to the offensive line by drafting Missouri tackle Justin Britt with the final pick in the second round of the NFL draft.

The offensive line appeared to be a need for the Seahawks heading into the draft with starting right tackle Breno Giacomini and guard Paul McQuistan leaving in free agency.

Britt was an all-Southeastern Conference first-team selection in 2013. Britt started all 14 games at left tackle last season, but played right tackle in the past for the Tigers. He’s also projected to be able to move to guard as well and versatility has proven important for the Seahawks.

At 6-foot-5, 327 pounds, Britt started 36 of 49 career games at Missouri.
