The Seahawks addressed their offensive line with their first selection on Day Three of the 2015 NFL Draft. With the 130th overall pick, they selected San Diego State guard Terry Poole.
Poole is listed at 6-5 and 323 pounds. In 2014, he moved from right tackle to left tackle for the Aztecs and was named an All-Mountain West first teamer. He has the versatility to play both guard and tackle and can help the Seahawks immediately address their needs on the line after some offseason departures.
Here is the NFL.com scouting report on Poole: "Good hand placement in run game. Is able to effort his way to run-block security. Shows good body control. Adequate pass pro posture with head back and hands ready. Has hip flexibility to make last-second recovery. Gives good, honest effort every snap."
With the 130th pick the Seahawks choose Terry Poole from San Diego State.
Poole is known for his quick feet and there may be some consideration for moving him to center as well with Max Unger being sent to New Orleans in the Jimmy Graham trade. The Seahawks already have J.R. Sweezy as a returnee at right guard and Justin Britt should be a stabilizing force at right tackle for many years to come. Poole's ability to play more than one position is an instant plus.
With Marshawn Lynch still entrenched at running back, the power ground game remains a priority for the Seahawks and Poole has the potential to fit in well in that regard. The Seahawks still have Steve Schilling and Keayon Milton for further depth at right guard. Patrick Lewis and Lemuel Jeanpierre are on the depth chart at center. Poole certainly adds needed depth and has the ability to contend for a starting job in his first pro season.
