The Seahawks lost a starting defensive tackle, Alan Branch, to the Bills over the offseason. So to potentially plug the hole, Seattle drafted Jordan Hill out of Penn State in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday. At 6-foot-1 and 303 pounds, Hill has played defensive end but found himself at nose tackle for most of his starts with the Nittany Lions. He tallied 123 total tackles in his final two seasons, when he was a regular starter, and had 9.5 sacks throughout his four years at Penn State.
