The Film Room: Mark Glowinski needs to improve run blocking to become starter

The Seattle Seahawks selected Mark Glowinski in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. A guard out of West Virginia University, Glowinski started for the Seahawks in just one game last season, filling in for J.R. Sweezy against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17. In this video breakdown, I discuss how Glowinki needs to improve to become a starter for the Seattle in the future, which many expect to happen right now on the left side sandwiched in between potentially two other new starters at left tackle and center.

My Three Takeaways

  1. Glowinski needs to improve hand usage to create leverage at the point of attack in run blocking.
  2. He is intelligent and has good awareness in pass blocking.
  3. His intensity and willingness to finish blocks stood out on tape.

This off-season Sweezy signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a 5 year, $32.5 million contract. If Glowinski can show continued improvement, he has the natural ability to be a starter for the Seahawks next season. After all, he should have a much bigger advantage than Sweezy did when he became a starting guard in his senior season, having been a seventh rounder who had been playing defense at NC State.
