I don’t have to tell you twice: our Seattle Seahawks need an above-average center. Despite the best efforts of players like Ethan Pocic, Kyle Fuller, Austin Blythe, and so forth, our ‘Hawks have yet to find a player they like for the long-term. With the 5th pick in this year’s draft, we quite possibly may have found our man. At least, that’s what the coaching staff, and you the people, seem to think. The upcoming mini-camps and subsequent preseason action will give us a clearer view of Olu Oluwatimi’s standing with our Seahawks. For now, we can do research, speculate, wait patiently... and dive in to the links!
