Seahawks: Three defensive linemen that Seattle should sign today
By Lee Vowell
Damon “Snacks” Harrison
The Seahawks need guys who can get to the opposing quarterback, true. But they also need more depth at defensive tackle. In fact, since Seattle addressed via the draft and free agency the issue with pressuring quarterbacks – Seattle draft Darrell Taylor in the second round and signed Bruce Irvin and Benson Mayowa in free agency – the bigger need might be along the interior of the defensive line.
This is where Snacks Harrison could come in. The veteran defensive tackle is not going to bring down many quarterbacks, but he is going to eat up blockers and help the run game. Plus, Harrison doesn’t need to come in and play the majority of snaps. In his career, Harrison has never played more than 61 percent of snaps for any of his respective teams in a season.
Seattle will not need Harrison to play much over 50 percent of the snaps in a game, likely not even that many. With Jarran Reed and Poona Ford penciled in as starters at defensive tackle, Harrison will be more of a rotational player.
And that means Harrison should be even more productive in 2020. With more snaps off, Harrison will be fresh and help stop an opposing running attack and help fix an issue Seattle had last year.
