The Seahawks have their share of question marks heading into the 2019 season, but there’s at least one position group that’s been consistent throughout offseason training: the offensive line.

Seahawks O-line primed for another step forward

“I don’t think this is confirmation bias,” 710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard said during Tuesday morning’s Blue 42 segment of Brock and Salk. Huard was asked to explain why the Seahawks’ O-line was one of this spring’s stronger units.

“It’s what my eyes have seen in multiple spots,” Huard said. “I know I can’t comment on a ton of what we saw on the field yesterday, but it is without question the offensive line. Duane Brown is one of your best players on the team, and he has been at every single one of these OTAs and dialed in, as has Justin Britt. D.J. Fluker’s been healthy; this time last year, that whole body was breaking down as he was trying to get right and he was on the sidelines for most of it. Guys haven’t been out… that O-line is setting the tone. They are there, every single day, charging ahead.”

The Seahawks have four of five 2018 starters returning on this year’s offensive line, with the lone exception being left guard J.R. Sweezy. Over the course of 2018, the group jumped from last in the league to 17th overall, and they’re eyeing another step forward this year.

Huard also answered questions about guard Ethan Pocic and rookie linebacker Cody Barton. Listen to his full segment of Blue 42 in the audio clip embedded above.
