ESPN's Mike Sando is at the scouting combine and doing a great job reporting on the different prospects. He's already spoken to both Andre Smith (OT, Alabama) and Eugene Monroe (OT, Virginia). Something caught my eye in one of his latest reports:
"All four NFC West teams could use upgrades for their offensive lines. The Rams (second overall) and Seahawks (fourth) could have the opportunity to select Smith or Monroe, but I could see both teams drafting for other positions. Seahawks general manager Tim Ruskell said he wants an "impact" player with the fourth pick. How many tackles fit that description?" - Mike Sando
With Walter Jones expected to return albeit from complicated micro fracture surgery, the Seahawks are unlikely to see an immediate benefit from selecting an offensive linemen with the fourth overall pick. If the team is looking for an instant 'pick me up' rather than a long term investment, they are unlikely to focus on a left tackle.
