Russell Wilson was the second most sacked quarterback last season and has been dropped over 40 times in each of the last four seasons. They had an undrafted former college basketball player with one year of college football experience as a tight end line up at left tackle and protect the franchise quarterback’s blindside last season. I mean, hello?!  Say what you want about Tom Cable’s ability to coach them up on the o-line, but Wilson was constantly limping around and had no support in the ground game as the offense finished 25th in rushing. The offensive line needs to be addressed early with some players with actual experience playing on it. Cam Robinson was a top 5 NFL draft prospect before the college football season started and now for whatever reason is being projected mid to late first round. Many analysts believe he is best suited as a right guard/tackle at the NFL level. Regardless this guy is a mauler and the Seahawks need help across the line. Signing former first round bust Luke Joeckel in the offseason was a sad move but who knows, maybe coach Cable can work his magic. Last year’s first round pick Germain Ifedi is penciled in at right guard but is rumored to be working out at right tackle. Robinson can come in and play either tackle spots or even guard which would provide a major boost to this offensive line. Theres a chance Cam could be long gone at this point, which if that is the case, the Seahawks should be looking at whatever offensive line prospects are still on the board. If Forrest Lamp or Garett Bolles is there, grab ’em. If not I would then reach for a Dan Feeney if you have to. The defense could use some depth especially in the secondary, but it’s a deep draft class there and the same can’t be said about the offensive line which is by far the biggest weakness for the ‘Hawks.
