The Seahawks needed offensive line help before the departure of J.R. Sweezy for Tampa Bay.
With Sweezy gone, Seattle has to address the line, or Russell Wilson will be running all season long. With the retirement of Marshawn Lynch, the running game will need a stout line in front of it in order to have any semblance of success.
Cody Whitehair from Kansas State is the draft’s best offensive guard, and taking him at 26th overall is a step in the right direction.
The Seahawks still need to retain Russell Okung, and may be able to add more talent later in the draft, but Whitehair will start immediately on Seattle’s offensive line.
