Since the start of last season, the offensive line has proven it is the weakest link on an otherwise stacked Seahawks team. The O-line limped through an injury-plagued 2013 campaign, then lost Breno Giacomini and Paul McQuistan to free agency. The Seahawks need to start here when analyzing picks in the draft and they should use their first round selection on an offensive lineman. A good lineman will affect everything else on the offense in a very positive way — better protection for Russell Wilson means better passes to his wide receivers which opens up an already great rushing attack from Marshawn Lynch. It all starts with the offensive line which is without a doubt Seattle’s biggest draft need.
