RENTON, Wash. (AP) — John Schneider and Pete Carroll can now get down to work using the Seattle Seahawks' 11 NFL draft picks.

After being spectators in the first round, the Seahawks will have two picks on Day 2 on Friday. Seattle is scheduled to have selections Nos. 63 (second round) and 95 (third round), before having nine picks on the final day. Seattle was without a first-round pick after acquiring tight end Jimmy Graham in the offseason.

Offensive line will be a priority for Seattle after losing two starters during the offseason, but defensive line, wide receiver and defensive back will also be positions where the Seahawks attempt to build depth through the draft.

Carroll joked about the lack of a pick Thursday night, poking his head into the media room and saying, "Don't tell anyone, but we're taking a tight end," in reference to Graham.
