The Seahawks offensive line was not so good in 2016. For Seattle to reach another Super Bowl, the line must get much better. (Duh!)
Three tackles on the Seahawks roster ranked in the bottom ten of the league in 2016, according to Pro Football Focus. Two of those players, Bradley Sowell and Garry Gilliam, are no longer on the team. The third, George Fant, could easily be the starter week one this year. Fant did improve as the season went on, and he has gained 25 pounds since last season. He better be much much at left tackle for the Seahawks to reach their goals.
Seattle did apparently upgrade the line this offseason, though. Not only did Seattle not retain Sowell and Gilliam – addition by subtraction – but they signed Luke Joeckel and Oday Aboushi. Joeckel and Aboushi have been far from great as well, but both have potential. At least more than Sowell or Gilliam.
Here is our guess at who will be a Seahawks offensive lineman in 2017.
