The Film Room: Watch how Jahri Evans will drastically improve Russell Wilson’s pass protection

New, comments

The Seattle Seahawks signed guard Jahri Evans to a one-year deal after he was cut by the New Orleans Saints this off-season. Evans dealt with ankle and injuries missing five games in 2015, but in his previous nine seasons, Evans had only missed two games. The guard out of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania has 153 career starts, while the entire Seahawks’ offensive line has 136 starts combined.

In this video breakdown, I took a look at how Jahri Evans will fit on Seattle’s offensive line.

Based on the film, Evans will drastically improve the Seahawks’ pass protection, but he has a clear weakness in run blocking as he is a much better position blocker using excellent awareness as opposed to a run mauler guard.

Moving forward, I predict that Germain Ifedi, rookie out of Texas A&M, will move to right tackle, while Evans will play right guard. Russell Wilson should certainly be happy with this signing.
