There's really no question whether the Seahawks will be drafting OL, it's just a matter of who/when. Although I chose Su'a-Filo in this poll, because he's a great fit for a zone-blocking team like the Seahawks and is the safest pick, the Seahawks could easily grab OT Morgan Moses or OT Jawuan James, considering that the Seahawks basically do not have a RT right now. No way the Seahawks draft Benjamin here. Verrett and Jernigan are absolute steals here as well, and both would see playing time. Some teams have Verrett rated as the best corner in this draft, and I've seen Jernigan rated as the second best DT in the draft.
Xavier Su'a-filo would be such a good pick here. Need it to be O-Line so bad. Going to have 2-3 new starters on O-Line and need talent talent talent there. Improves entire offense and we saw how important O-Line depth was with all the injuries last year. Have to stock it up and add some talent to it for once
Haven't addressed it in a long time and result was Seahawks gave up a ton of sacks and ha worst run blocking guards and RT in league
Joel Bitonio is the pick out of these players here. He can either play RT or a Guard spot and start right away. The Seahawks love players who can play at multiple spots along the line. He's very similar to Logan Mankins in his playing style and body type, as well as his combine numbers. He has that aggression and mobility that the Seahawks like to employ during their ZBS (Zone Blocking Scheme). Most of the Seahawks O-Lineman are very athletic and can move down the field very well, and Bitonio is just the same. While a Wide Receiver is also a position of need, I don't like Kelvin Benjamin here. a player like Cody Latimer is rising up the draft boards and I think the Seahawks would consider him at the 32nd position. With Bitonio as the pick, I could see this as the O-Line next season, LT: Russel Okung, LG: Alvin Bailey/Michael Bowie, C: Max Unger, RG: JR Sweezy, RT: Joel Bitonio (His arms are just as long as Jake Matthews, so I don't see why people don't think he can swing out to tackle).
Su'a-Filo or Benjamin make sense, but I think people are under rating Verret here. Yes Seattle's secondary is great but they lost two of their top 4 corners this offseason. Verret could fit perfectly as a slot guy to lock down the opponent's shifty receiver. His size is less important to Seattle than anyone else, because the Seahawks already have Sherman and Maxwell on the outside. Mostly though, my argument is that Verret is an elite defensive talent who has slipped to the end of the round. Give him to Pete Carroll and watch the magic happen.
I just can't see the Seahawks spending another 1st round pick on an OL (this would make 3/4 with another pick being traded for Percy Harvin), especially considering how hight they are on developing youngsters Bowie and Bailey.
In reality Schneider and Carroll will pick the best player on their board, and who the hell knows who that will be (see Carpenter, Irvin). Since their pick is always a “reach” my money is on a guy like Robert Allen or Jordan Mathews. I wouldn't be surpassed if they trade back into round 2 (i’m looking at you Jacksonville) and still snag the guy they want.
Plain and simply, the Seahawks will not get another chance in this draft to pick an O-Lineman of Bitonio's caliber. Kelvin Benjamin is tempting here as well, but there will be quality receivers available at #64 such as (possibly) Cody Latimer, Martavis Bryant or Brandon Coleman.
They are still very high on JR Sweezy (for some reason) and think that they can plug in Carpenter, and Bailey into the other spots. The offensive line picks will happen but I think they go for a Legitimate number 1 receiver.
Gotta be an OL-man here, and Su'a-Filo is the best available.
