Sorry about just another o-line thread, but lets really look at it from a player acquisition point of view:
The past 3 drafts have brought the Seahawks 5 starters(3 via draft, 2 via FA) and 1 potential starter.
LT Fant (FA-16), LG Glowinski (4th round-14), C Britt (2nd Round-14), RG Ifedi (1st Round-16), RT Gilliam (FA-14).
Potential starter Odhiambo (3rd Round-16).
Last year they brought in 2 street FA in Sowell and Webb. On the surface they are at least trying. The past few years they have been bringing in 3-4 guys to at least complete. I fully expect to see at least that many more this offseason, be it street FA, draft or undrafted FA.
Could the state of the o-line during the 16 season be one of inexperience alone? They are obviously bringing in guys to compete. Are they the wrong guys? Is the coaching too patient with younger guys?
How much potential do any new guys need to show before they can unseat the above 5 "starters"? Is anyone deemed safe at their position? Britt most likely, but what if an all-pro Center fell in their lap? Where would Britt go? Were Britts failures at G & T just due to inexperience? Could we potentially see a different guy at each position on the line? Not necessarily completely different guys but more a shuffling of positions?
So many questions. Its gonna be fun to watch it unfold.
