The Seahawks used two of their first four picks on defensive tackles, addressing a position they considered their top priority heading into the draft.

Third-round pick Jordan Hill and fifth-rounder Jesse Williams play the same position but will be used in different ways. Hill, who's 6-foot-1 and 303 pounds, projects as interior rusher on passing downs. Fifth-rounder Jesse Williams is two inches taller and 20 pounds heaver, and the team sees him as big-bodied run stuffer who will play mostly on first and second down.

"Those guys are totally different style football players," coach Pete Carroll told "Afternoons with the Go 2 Guy" on Monday. "We think we can get a real good combination of style and strength and quickness out of those guys and get a great rotation there if they can work there way up the depth chart."

Brock Huard and Danny O'Neil think Hill and Williams have the best chances of the Seahawks' 11 rookies to make a significant impact in 2013. They explain why in the video below.
