Seahawks News: Seattle Takes Two Offensive Linemen In 4th Round

The Seattle Seahawks had a big need to improve their offensive line, and they think they did so by drafting San Diego State offensive tackle Terry Poole and West Virginia guard Mark Glowinski with its two fourth-round picks.

Poole (6'5", 307 lbs) started every game at tackle during his two seasons with the Aztecs, though he's projected to be a guard in the NFL. He was a second-team all-Mountain West selection last season.

"I'm an athletic, hard-nosed football player," Poole said after being drafted. "I'm very physical and very hard-nosed. ... I take pride in being the most physical player on the field."

Glowinski already made the transition from tackle to guard, and started all 25 games the past two seasons at West Virginia. He was experience playing both tackle and guard for the Mountaineers, and he also practiced at center occasionally, giving him the kind of versatility the Seahawks are looking for.

Offensive line became a big need when the Seahawks traded center Max Unger to New Orleans in the deal that brought tight end Jimmy Graham to Seattle.

They also lost starting left guard James Carpenter to the New York Jets in free agency.
