Seahawks draft Missouri offensive tackle Justin Britt

With their second pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Seahawks selected offensive tackle Justin Britt of Missouri.

Britt, listed at 6-5-7/8, 325, played primarily left tackle for the Tigers though he also played some right tackle (here is his Missouri bio box).

He started 36 games overall at Missouri and was an All-SEC First Team pick in 2013.

He started all 14 games for Missouri at left tackle in 2013.

The Seahawks, though, apparently envision that he could also play guard.

Britt was generally considered a fourth- or fifth-round pick by most draft pundits.

Seattle is not scheduled to have any more picks tonight, but has six in rounds four through seven on the final day of the draft on Saturday.

As for Britt, here is his profile from NFL.com.

That report concludes, saying:

“College left tackle with enough length and foot quickness to handle the blind side in a pinch, but is more ideally suited for the right side and could be best suited for a swing backup role. Has played nearly every position on the line and could add depth as a positional, wall-off blocker.”

And like the earlier pick, Paul Richardson, Britt has had some injuries, as the NFL.com report explains:

“Suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot in July 2012 but healed in time to start the first nine games of the season — six at right tackle, three at LT — before suffering a season-ending torn right ACL injury. Started all 14 games at LT in 2013.”

Here is some video of Britt:
