RENTON – Versatility was a huge reason the Seahawks drafted Ethan Pocic in the second round.
He had played all three offensive line spots at LSU, but spent most of his time at center.
It’s his ability to learn tackle – the position he did not play as much in college – that will determine how quickly he gets on the field for Seattle. Pocic is trying to do his part.
“It all goes back to how much you study, how much preparation you do, and how much you know,” Pocic said. “I feel like the more you know, the better. As we do more practices and we get out there more and more and more, as we get to later in [practices], I feel more confident as we go. The more you learn, the better.”
Pocic is working at right tackle, where he started one game in college compared to 27 at center. He practiced with the first-unit offensive line during the three days that Germain Ifedi missed, but Pocic has stayed on the field with the second and at times even third unit.
