RENTON – The Seahawks doubled on offensive linemen in the fourth round, taking West Virginia’s Mark Glowinski four picks after selecting Terry Pool
from San Diego State. And just like that, Seattle addressed two of the biggest needs on its roster.

Glowinski said during a conference call with Seattle-area reporters that the Seahawks have talked to him about playing one of the interior offensive-line spots, where the team has openings after losing left guard James Carpenter in free agency and trading center Max Unger. Glowinski said he has only played guard, though, his experience at center being limited to a few practices at West Virginia.

How does he describe his style of play?

“I never stop,” he said.

While Glowinski might have to learn a new position with the Seahawks, he won’t have to learn an entirely new blocking scheme as he has a great deal of experience with the zone system.

This scouting report on Glowinski from STATS notes that he stood out at the combine by finishing fourth among offensive linemen with 31 bench-press repetitions and tied for sixth with a time of 4.58 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle. It notes that he was a strong pull blocker at West Virginia, that he struggled at times in pass protection and that he has a high football IQ.

Glowinksi is 6 feet 5 and 306 pounds. He’s from the northeastern Pennsylvania city of Wilkes-Barre and he turns 23 years old on Sunday.

“This will be the best birthday present of my life,” he said.
