Long maligned, the Seattle Seahawks offensive line made big strides last season, first in drafting twin tackles that project to play for a decade, second in drafting two more interior prospects with high upside.

How quickly will our young unit turn into a cohesive assembly of beefcakes and maulers? Who will end up starting the most games next season at center?
