After taking offensive guard Terry Poole with the first of their two fourth-round picks on Day Two of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Seahawks continued to address the depth of their blocking unit with the selection of West Virginia guard Mark Glowinski.
Taken four slots after Poole at No. 134 with a compensatory selection, Glowinski is listed at 6-4 and 310 pounds. He was named second team All-Big 12 in 2014 as he started all 13 games at right guard. He started all 12 games in 2013 after moving from tackle and played a team-high 842 snaps. NFL Network analyst Mark Dulgerian had a positive review of the pick: "Seattle addresses their offensive line's interior with their second straight guard selection. Glowinski is a gym rat whose game is predicated on power. He is a nice addition to their offensive line competition in camp."
With the 134th pick the Seahawks choose Mark Glowinski from West Virginia.
Here is the NFL.com scouting report on Glowinski. "Loves to hit the weights. Generates power from his upper body and can get quick wins against weaker interior defenders. Coaches rave about his competitiveness and toughness. Has feet of a former tackle. Smooth skip-pull over the center. Clean pass set out to target and punches with flat feet. Instinctive and aware. Good radar when blocking in space. Consistent with hand placement in run and pass games."
After taking a defender and a wide receiver in the first two rounds, the Seahawks quickly moved to gain more depth on the offensive line in the fourth round, grabbing two of the better prospects available. After center Max Unger was traded to New Orleans and guard James Carpenter signed with the Jets, the Seahawks have certainly moved to fill the departed slots quickly on the third day of the draft.
Like Poole, Glowinski should immediately help the interior of the line. He is regarded as a promising pass blocker and should come in and vie for quality playing time as a rookie.
