Post Draft Thoughts:
“McDowell needed to go to the right situation, where he can continue to mature and learn to become accountable. A lot of mocks had him going to Seattle, and they were able to trade down and still get him. When healthy and motivated he is a top 5 pick in any draft, and if that happens in Seattle, they got an incredible steal. If the issues run deeper, they didn’t waste a first rounder on him. The Seahawks run an unusual offensive line scheme, and picked up perhaps the most versatile offensive line prospect in the draft in Pocic. Will he play center, guard, or tackle? They have needs, so that will be interesting to watch.”
2018 NFL Draft
The addition of Duane Brown to the offensive line is just what the Seahawks needed to bolster the awful offensive line. The problem is that is adding yet another me-first, loud mouth that has been hampering Seattle’s ability to play up to their talent level. They simply need to start bringing in higher character players, and start having a more disciplined locker room with guys that are more about the team than themselves.
The offensive line has been the Achilles heal for the Seahawks the last few years, and it is not because they have been ignoring that unit. Wilson’s scrambling ability has lessened the negative impact of their offensive line coaches interesting, but ultimately ineffective approach to offensive line blocking. Seattle needs to not only get more talent on the offensive line, but also find a new coach to lead the unit.
The Legion of Boom still is a very effective collection of defensive backs, but they always seem to be one guy short. Finding diamonds in the rough has not been the case the last few years, and they should probably look at spending a high draft pick on a cornerback.
