The Seattle Seahawks should be looking to add strength along the offensive line for quarterback Russell Wilson after he publicly called the team out for the high number of hits he feels that he's taken. Seattle's offensive line ranked 16th as a unit in pass blocking in 2020, its highest ProFootballFocus grade since Wilson became Seattle's quarterback in 2012.
Duane Brown is the offensive line leader but he's 35 years old, and the Seahawks have possibly four offensive linemen hitting free agency. That includes four-time Pro Bowl guard Mike Iupati and restricted free agent center Kyle Fuller.
Here are three offensive linemen the Seahawks should target in free agency.
1. Matt Feiler, Tackle, Pittsburgh Steelers
Matt Feiler is a fifth-year pro who became a starter in 2018. He remains undervalued, despite being the fifth-highest-graded right tackle in football in 2019, according to PFF pass-blocking grades. He rates as a good tackle and above-average guard as needed. Feiler would be a value free agent signing for certain.
2. Austin Reiter, Center, Kansas City Chiefs
Austin Reiter is a better pass blocker than he is in the run game, with PFF grades of at least 78.0 in every season of significant playing time. In 2020, the sixth-year pro allowed just seven total pressures and wasn’t flagged for a penalty all season. He'd be an asset as Seattle focuses on protecting their star QB.
3. Daryl Williams, Tackle, Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills are going to lose a number of offensive linemen in free agency, and the best one is right tackle Daryl Williams. Seattle may have to open up the wallet a bit more to land the massive 28-year-old out of Oklahoma, but Williams has a PFF grade of at least 77.0 as both a pass and run blocker, showing he's absolutely worth a big payday.
