Seattle has lost 3 of 5 Starters on the offensive line from 2019 but hopes to settle on a starting group sooner than later.
As mentioned earlier, there are still questions to answer with the offensive line after three of the five starters from 2019 moved on from last season. It’s safe to assume Duane Brown will again be the starter at left tackle, while incumbent left guard Mike Iupati currently looks like the favorite to keep that job, though he’ll have to hold off the likes of Phil Haynes and Jordan Simmons. Center looks to be the most wide-open competition as of now, with free-agent addition B.J. Finney splitting first-team reps with Ethan Pocic. At right guard, rookie Damien Lewis looks to be the favorite, though again, the likes of Haynes and Simmons could push him for that job. Free-agent addition Brandon Shell has earned rave reviews from Carroll so far in camp and looks to be the likely choice at right tackle, but Cedric Ogbuehi, another free-agent signing, could factor into that competition. Another name that could emerge at a number of spots, due to his versatility, is Jamarco Jones. As Carroll noted when talking to the media this week, the hope will be to settle on a starting group sooner than later for the sake of continuity, but there are still some competitions to sort out.
