We're getting some really beautiful pictures from the AP, so I decided to open another post to ensure they are prominently featured.
Eric Williams spoke with Jim Mora about finalizing Seattle's offensive line:
Mora would not put a timetable on when he wants to solidify the starting five up front, saying sooner instead of later. However, Jones’ status coming back from microfracture knee surgery on his left knee has made the task even tougher, as Locklear also has to rotate over to spell Jones during team drills, leaving Locklear getting time at right guard, right tackle and left tackle.
Somewhat contradictory information here. Obviously Seattle wants a set offensive line, but with all the talk about interchangeable parts and given the fact that Jones won't be ready until the regular season, determining a starting five seems an impossibility. Reading between the lines, Rob Sims is the left guard. Right guard is the open position and Seattle is shuffling a lot of bodies through there including Mansfield Wrotto, Max Unger and now Sean Locklear. There's always talk about Locklear playing inside, but I've wondered why. He's not too stout or powerful and his best skill is pass blocking in space. Plus, Ray Willis has proven capable at the position.
Lucas also got beat deep by Courtney Taylor in one-on-one drills, but made a couple, nice deflections during team drills. Lucas worked at right cornerback, and Josh Wilson filled in for Trufant at left cornerback.
That stings. Ken Lucas was beat by both Nate Burleson and Courtney Taylor. These Carolina castoffs haven't really panned out, huh? You're 2014 starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks: amputee Jake Delhomme.
