Seattle Seahawks Draft Terry Poole And Mark Glowinski In The Fourth Round


On Friday, the Seattle Seahawks made big news by trading up in the third round to get Tyler Lockett. Today, they were rumored to have a deal in place with the Tennessee Titans to move up again.

But alas, John Schneider and Pete Carroll stayed put with their two late-fourth round picks, and have taken Terry Poole at No. 130. If you are a frequenter of Emerald City Swagger, you know I was hoping for Shaq Mason on the O-line. To be honest, I haven’t watched tape on Poole so I’ll cite Rob Rang here.

"“STRENGTHS: He is a big, strong and has plenty of girth. Poole played both the left and right tackle with success. He proved himself capable of learning and adapting with success to both a new position and offensive scheme. He displays decent speed and feet. Poole has the power and speed to get movement in his run blocks. He demonstrated at the East-West Shrine Game he has the feet to play right tackle or guard. He also showed his ability to deliver a jarring hand punch during his time in St. Petersburg under the watch of NFL Scouts.WEAKNESSES: Poole likely does not have the quick feet or athleticism to play left tackle at the next level. He was exposed by Kentucky defensive end Za’Darius Smith at the East-West Shrine Game. Smith propelled his performance to earn an invite to the Senior Bowl. Poole will get beat by speed and counter moves. Must learn to stay lower and keep his ability to anchor. He gets off balance does and must do a better job of sinking his hips.”"

Expect him to compete with Alvin Bailey for the left guard spot. If he loses that battle, he will provide depth at right tackle and both guard spots.

Just a few minutes later with the No. 134 pick, the Seahawks took another lineman, Mark Glowinski from West Virginia. This is a guy I did do a little bit of scouting on. Glowinski is definitely a Tom Cable type of guy. He plays with a mean streak and wants to put every defender he hits on the ground.

He has a lot of upper body strength and has good initial quickness of the snap. He looks smooth when pulling, but doesn’t have great awareness of who to block when he gets to the second level. Overall, he is a good athlete with a LOT of strength and attitude.

Offensive line is the one position that Pete Carroll and John Schneider have been able to draft successfully, so we’ll have to see if Poole or Glowinski can buck the trend.
