With their second pick in the fourth round, the Seahawks selected Jaye Howard, a defensive tackle out of Florida.

Howard is 6-3, 301 pounds, and according to his scouting reports, is athletic for a tackle. We’ll see what Pete Carroll says about Howard’s role, but it sounds like he might be the type of tackle they hope can provide an interior pass rushing presence, or perhaps another player capable of playing the five-technique (think Red Bryant) end position.
