The Seattle Seahawks have had a monumental offseason. The coaching staff has almost completely turned over and the roster will look different in 2024. The hope is that all these changes won't just make the team better next season but in many years beyond.

Seahawks fans should assume the defense, especially the tackling, is going to be better. New head coach Mike Macdonald should make sure that is the case. If he doesn't then giving him a long contract to start his Seattle career could be a mistake. But let's assume the best will happen.

But the first burst of free agency is done. Seattle made some understated moves, of course, as they normally do. But what is left to happen? Here are seven things that general manager John Schneider still needs to address.

Seattle Seahawks must address the offensive line

The Seahawks' offensive line is a mess. There should be no way that 12s believe in the ability of the O-line the way it is currently structured. There is a hole at left guard unless John Schneider thinks Tremayne Anchrum, Jr. is actually the answer based on, well...nothing really. Olu Oluwatimi might be OK at center, but that is only a hope without evidence. Right guard could be Anthony Bradford but he was very bad in his rookie season this past season.

How Seattle's offensive line is going to improve between pre-draft and Week 1 of the 2024 season is anyone's guess. The excellent part of that is most people making those guesses do not get paid to fix the issue. Schneider does, so the hope is he has a plan on what to do. Maybe Schneider knows which interior offensive linemen he is going to take in the 2024 NFL draft and if Seattle does load up on that group in the draft it should not be disappointing to 12s.

Still, adding a player such as Dalton Risner in free agency would be a nice move. Risner might not be perfect but he is a veteran who knows how to read defenses and that would help any young players on the line. That is just a hope, though. Another hope is that what the Seahawks' offensive line looks like now changes somehow, in some way, and in any way possible.
